Tribune Regional: Hobson-area guardsman honored with Purple Heart

Tribune Regional Reporter

LEWISTOWN — A soldier from the Hobson area was honored with a Purple Heart on Thursday in Lewistown for injuries he received when an explosive device destroyed his Humvee in Iraq.

Sgt. Glenn Davis, a member of the Montana National Guard with the 163rd Infantry Battalion, received the medal during a low-key ceremony at the Lewistown Armory.

Davis, a sniper and security officer, was injured when an improvised explosive device detonated against the right side of the Humvee he was driving.

The impact from the explosion destroyed the Humvee. Three other soldiers and an interpreter, who were passengers in the Humvee, survived and returned to duty, said Sgt. 1st Class Greg Fox, spokesman for the National Guard in Helena.

Davis' Humvee was part of a convoy that was operating out of Hawijah, Iraq — the same area where Sgt. 1st Class Robbie McNary of Lewistown was killed in combat in March.

Davis suffered a lower back injury and returned to the United States for treatment and evaluation. He remains on active duty. No determination has been made about his possible return to Iraq, Fox said.

Lt. Colonel John Walsh of Helena presented Davis with the purple and gold medallion, which is awarded to wounded American soldiers in the name of the President of the United States.
