Read Hal Moore's "We Were Soldiers Once, and Young", then you'll be up to speed on 1st Cav., at least during Vietnam. Garry Owen!

I've never heard of the book you are talking about. Sometime next week I will go out and look for it or maybe just on line to buy it. I've done lots of reading about military leaders and find most of the ones people never hear of are the ones that deserve most of the praise.
I served under a full bird colonel while in a special operation I participated in soon after the Vietnam war. He was the most low-keyed, under estimated leader I have ever had the pleasure and honor to serve with. I would have followed that man to hell and back. The operation is still classified but we did something I will NEVER forget. We made many families very happy. I'm in my late forties now and would serve again if called. Chances are it will never happen. To all the soldiers serving under dangerous conditions all over the world, I stand and salute you and pray for your safe return everyday. All the troops I know who are in Iraq, are happy to be there helping out the people get their freedom. All the men I know who were hurt and are recovering from their wounds, ALL want to return to their units and finish the job. If that's not true heroism and dedication, what is it??
