Saluting a hero

Retired Marine Corps General Ray Davis — who graduated with a degree in chemical engineering from Georgia Tech in 1938 — stands before a plaque at Wardlaw Center honoring him as Tech’s only living recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor. President Harry Truman presented the nation’s highest military honor to Davis in 1952 for his actions in the Korean War two years earlier. Despite facing an overwhelming enemy force, Davis led his battalion into an attack to save a rifle company and two marine regiments from capture. He retired in 1972 as the Marine Corps’ second-highest ranking officer.
