Liz Faublas sits down with Vietnam Veteran and bronze star recipient Auggie Scorino. Scorino shares the story of how in November, 1967, he and his battalion became trapped on the now infamous Hill 875 in the village of Dak in South Vietnam. Surrounded by enemy fire, hunkered down among the severely wounded and the dead with no food, medicine, first aid or hope that they would ever be rescued, Scorino recounts how, after risking his own life to help his fellow soldiers, he was one of few who made it out alive.
