On today’s DiabetesPowerShow, Charlie Cherry, Chris Moore, Theresa Moore, and Chris Daniel are honored to have two very special guests, Robert Davis and Jay Barth.

Robert Davis

Senior Master Sergeant Robert Money Davis, a.k.a. "Money D" is a 25 year veteran who was wounded in combat while carrying 7.5 million dollars to a base near Baghdad, Iraq. His claim to fame is falling out of a helicopter two stories up, with 9 million dollars strapped to his leg. While flying in a Blackhawk helicopter, they were coming into Baghdad International Airport, and the base was under attack. Mortar rounds were landing near the airport. While attempting to land, one mortar round exploded near the runway, and shook the helicopter. The door was open, and SMSGt Davis was adjusting his seat belt. The weight of the money dragged him out of the helicopter and onto the Tarmac.

He has served in combat in almost every country in the Middle East. He served most of his career as a financial analyst, spending the final years, both as a Combat Comptroller, trained in combat, and as a Superintendent of Finance, and as a First Sergeant. He also served in the combat theater as a Convoy Commander. During part of his career, he served as a Commandant of the Leadership Schools in Europe, and was awarded Commandant of the Year for Europe Air Forces.

He has been awarded the Bronze Star for heroism. During a horrible fire fight, SMSGt Davis single-handily fought off insurgents, and was able to eliminate the enemy, and rescue his troops. He has been awarded 67 awards and medals. He has been awarded the Outstanding Senior Non Commission Officer of the Year for Financial Management for the entire Air Force. He was also awarded Superintendent and NCO of the Year, respectively, for Financial Management for the Air Force. He holds the record as the most decorated Financial Management Specialist in the Air Force.

He was medically retired after the explosion that ended his career. He had to learn how to eat, speak, and walk all over again. He is an Incomplete Quadriplegic, but through his Dive Alliance experiences, he is thriving, and living a full life.

His greatest accomplishments are his children. He has a daughter, Addie Davis, who is 33, a daughter, Amanda Arthur, who is 30, and a son, Aidyn who is 9. He is married to the former Patricia Marshall. He is eternally grateful to his sweetheart, Patty, for all she has done to raise the children while he went away serving in combat.
