It is not very often that a news anchor is moved to tears in the course of doing their job. But such was the case today when Tamron Hall, host of MSNBC’s News Nation, became misty eyed during an interview with Iraq war veteran Perfecto Sanchez.
Sanchez who is retired now, talked about his role in battle for the town of Ramadi.
The interview was to promote the American Heroes Channel series Against The Odds which profiles acts of valor on the battlefield. Sanchez retired from the US Army at the rank of Captain, served two tours and fought in the 2006 battle for Ramadi, a place Time magazine once called the most dangerous place on earth.
Sanchez is one of the veterans whose story is told in the Monday night series.
At the end of the interview Ms. Hall spoke briefly about meeting Sanchez before and hearing his story again brought a moment of warmth and candor as she expressed her heartfelt thanks to all those who risked their lives in combat arms.
Here is Tamron’s interview with Captain Sanchez:
