Great Movie!



Hal Moore was a Lt. Col. in the U.S. Army when he received his orders to "find and engage the enemy." It was November of 1965.

Bruce Crandall and his 16 "Huey" crews flew Moore and his men into the Ia Drang Valley in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. Joe Galloway, a reporter for United Press International, tagged along. Col. Moore and his men had no idea that their Landing Zone (LZ X-Ray) was close to the place where 2000 North Vietnamese soldiers had gathered. Soon 450 Americans were surrounded.
