A Real-Life Soldier Was Outnumbered Ten to One, But He Won the Battle; Let’s Honor This Hero

Our country has lost a very special soldier earlier this month.  Retired Army Lieutenant General Hal Moore passed away on February 10, just days before his 95th birthday.

 This brave soldier commanded the 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment during 1965’s Battle of Ia Drang in Vietnam.

Moore’s book about his wartime experiences, We Were Soldiers Once… And Young, co-written by correspondent Joe Galloway, was turned into the 2002 hit movie, We Were Soldiers, starring Mel Gibson as Moore.

This battle is considered to be the first major conflict in the Vietnam War, and has been described by Moore’s co-writer as “a ride into the pages of history and the depths of hell” where the American soldiers were outnumbered 10 to 1!

Thanks to Moore’s leadership, most of our soldiers survived this fierce standoff.

This moving tribute is includes clips from We Were Soldiers, plus more pictures and information on Moore’s heroic acts. It is a moving testament to a true American hero!
