The first of what will be a long running series at 1001 Heroes, this episode tells the story of heroes known and largely unknown from different periods in history and different walks of life.
Today: William F. Cody- one of the world's biggest celebrities by 1900, who brought the American West to a world audience; Virginia Hall, the only female OSS agent to ever receive their highest award for service after she provided espionage service saving allied escapees and training resistance behind Herman lines in Vichy controlled France; The Granite Mountain Hotshots, an elite firefighting team that lost 19 of its 20 members fighting a wildfire in Arizona; Audie Murphy, who won every medal the US Army had to give in WWII despite being turned down for his size (5;5"), and survived to become an author, song writer and movie star; Carlos Hathcock, the US Marine sniper upon whose head the North Vietnamese Army placed a $30,000 bounty and who helped bring attention to the need for PTSD therapy (as did Audie Murphy);; Abdul Haji, a Kenyan businessman who, upon hearing that Islamic terrorists were killing innocents in a nearby mall, rushed in to help save others; and a heart-rending story of a son's appreciation for his father's years of sacrifice.
