Edward Davis, 90, enlisted in the Army at 17 and was stationed at Schofield Barracks on Oahu during the attack on Pearl Harbor. Davis spent much of his life in the Army, working up to 1st Sergeant through service in the South Pacific during WWII, in Germany and Korea during the Korean War, and on three tours of Vietnam in the late 1960s. Davis was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder after his WWII service, then known as "shell-shock", and now battles with Parkinson's disease that he says is the result of Agent Orange exposure during his time in Vietnam. Davis lives at the Armed Forces Retirement Home in Washington, D.C., seen on Nov. 17, 2011. (T.J. Kirkpatrick/ The Washington Times)
