The Story of an Iraqi Interpreter Turned Tampa Resident

Maj. Scott Huesing dropped by the WFLA studios with his best selling book, "Echo in Ramadi", and he brought the courageous protagonist with him for an exclusive, in-depth interview. "Echo in Ramadi" tells the story of "Big Sam" Samawi Al Helli- an Iraqi teenager who served as an Interpreter. He risked his life and his family to help U.S. Marines fight and win the Battle of Ramadi- one of the deadliest accounts of modern urban warfare. Today, he is a Tampa resident with plans to serve our country in the U.S. Navy. Scott and "Big Sam" share their stories with P.M. Tampa Bay host Ryan Gorman.
