Tamron Hall Brought To Tears During Interview With Iraq Vet

Tamron Hall's emotions were high on Monday during an interview with an Iraq war veteran.

Hall teared up while talking to Perfecto Sanchez on MSNBC's "News Nation" about a new documentary series on the American Heroes Channel that will tell real life stories from the battlefields.

Hall spoke to Sanchez about his experiences in Ramadi, Iraq, and how it felt to relive those memories for the new show. But what pushed Hall over the edge was when Sanchez told her about a promise he made after leaving the military.

"One thing I promised the men that I served next to is that I would live everyday in their honor," he said. "I never forget that experience-- I never forget them. I thank them for teaching me, for protecting me and that's something that I want to continue-- to live every day that I have on this earth to be a good person."

"You know you're bringing me tears to my eyes," she said, unable to get her words out. "Ah, sorry!"
