OPINION

A bold and foolhardy soldier

I spent much of Veterans Day reading about Dan Edwards, one of the most remarkable soldiers in the history of Arkansas and the nation. Unlike his fellow World War I hero, Herman Davis of Mississippi County, Edwards is not well known in our state history--perhaps due to his unorthodox ways and penchant for ignoring orders. Nevertheless, Edwards' exploits of bravery, excessive and self-endangering though they might have been, rank him among the most decorated veterans in the history of the U.S. Army.
