Farewell Lt. Gen Harold G. "Hal" Moore

Retired Lt. Gen Harold Moore has passed away Friday February 1st, 2017 at his residence in Auburn,Alabama. A Lt. Colonel at the time, Mr. Moore commanded the 1st Battalion,7th Calvary Regiment at the 1965 Battle of Ia Drang, the first major battle between US and North Vietnamese armies. This action was detailed in the book "We Were Soldiers Once... And Young". I have not read very many books about Vietnam but I have read this one and it is a great read, recommend it. I also enjoyed the movie adapted from it starring Mel Gibson as Lt.Colonel Moore.




Thank for your service Mr. Moore
