AR, thanks for the ping. Cable impaired await you review.

Now here in the States, some men in this Unit may experience discrimination because of race or creed. But for you and me now, all that is gone. We're moving into the 'valley of the shadow of death' -- where you will watch the back of the man next to you, as he will watch yours. And you won't care what color he is or by what name he calls God.

In RANDALL WALLACE’s truly riveting “FIGHT or DIE” Discovery TV Special JOE GALLOWAY correctly states about he and others surrounded by an overwhelming Communist NVA Enemy in the IA DRANG Valley of November 1965...

..”We had to fight or die there because there was no running for us. For we had no where to run to. At Landing Zone X-Ray we were isolated 17 miles from everything and the nearest road in an area just crawling with enemy.”

At IA DRANG’s Landing Zone Falcon, we were isolated 12 miles from everything and the nearest road.

And if LZ X-Ray had fallen, that same NVA enemy would have been on us at LZ Falcon in 15 minutes.

For we had no where to run to either..!!!

Roger that, Marty. One of the most moving and touching films EVER about what war does to those who fight and those who wait at home.

I wept as those telegrams were delivered and lost it completely when Willie Godboldt’s wife got hers.

I read that the young actress in that role had no idea how to play that scene the morning of the shoot and just let it happen when the camera rolled. She produced — for me at any rate — perhaps the most emotionally wrenching and palpable 20 seconds in any film.

I hope Wallace and Gibson make more movies together and that Nick-Glennie Smith does the scores.

I was a Warrior, (Warrior 29) in the 2d flight platoon. I haven't read Into Laos. The only history book I've read on Vietnam is We Were Soldiers-. I never flew into Laos, I've known a few guys who have. Closest I came was the invasion of Cambodia in May, 1970.

MOH Recipient Ed Freeman Dies
August 21, 2008 Idaho Statesman

As Ed "Too Tall" Freeman lay ill in a Boise hospital over the past few weeks, many came to pay their respects to the 80-year-old national war hero and former helicopter pilot.
One unexpected visitor offered a very personal thank you to Freeman, a veteran of three wars and recipient of the highest military award -- the Congressional Medal of Honor -- for his actions on Nov. 14, 1965, at Landing Zone X-Ray, Ia Drang Valley, Vietnam.
"A guy came into the hospital and said, 'You don't know me, but I was one of those people you hauled out of the X-Ray,'" said Mike Freeman, 54, one of Ed's two sons. "He said, 'Thanks for my life.' "
Freeman died Wednesday.
His Medal of Honor citation credits him with helping save 30 seriously wounded soldiers in 14 separate rescue missions in an unarmed helicopter.
Since the Medal of Honor was created during the Civil War, 3,467 have been awarded, according to the Congressional Medal of Honor Society.
The heroics of Freeman and the others involved in the Ia Drang campaign are immortalized in the Mel Gibson movie "We Were Soldiers," which is based on the book "We Were Soldiers Once ... And Young." A sequel, "We Are Soldiers Still," was released this month.
Freeman, a Mississippi native who married an Idahoan, began his military career at 17 with a two-year stint in the Navy during World War II.
"He joined the Navy and hated it. The ocean thing was not his bag," Mike Freeman said.
So he joined the Army, serving four years in Germany before getting deployed to the Korean conflict.
The 6-foot-4 tell-it-like-it-is Southerner got the name "Too Tall" because he was told he was too tall to be a pilot. That didn't stop him from pushing to fly.
"He was tenacious about getting into flight school. He drove them insane until they let him in," Mike Freeman said.
He proved his mettle by becoming one the Army's most heralded helicopter pilots. Two streets at Fort Rucker, Ala., where Freeman trained to be a helicopter pilot, were recently named in honor of Freeman and Maj. Bruce P. Crandall, his commanding officer in the Ia Drang campaign.
In the early 1960s, Freeman served as aviation adviser to the Idaho Army National Guard.
"He was a super instructor. He was not one of these guys who get excited very easily," said retired Maj. Gen. Jack Kane, former commanding general of the Idaho National Guard.
Kane, a second lieutenant in 1963-64, got his first helicopter lessons from Freeman. Decades later, Kane attended the 2001 Medal of Honor ceremony for Freeman at the White House.
"It was, really, a super-moving moment," said Kane, who was in a meeting at the Pentagon when Freeman called to invite him to the ceremony.
Freeman retired from the military in 1967 and a few years later moved to Idaho with his wife, Barbara, and sons, Mike and Doug. But he didn't give up flying. He went to work for the Department of Interior's Office of Aircraft Services.
Mike Freeman said his dad made sure that helicopter pilots contracted by Department of Interior agencies were up to snuff.
"Anyone who flew for the government had to get past him," he said.
Freeman retired from flying in 1991 with more than 25,000 hours of flying time, including 18,000 in helicopters, according to his family and a 2002 newsletter published by the Idaho Military Historical Society and Museum. That's nearly three years in the air. [excerpt end]

I searched FR but didn’t see this,
I just got an Email from a friend that said Ed Freeman
died last Wednesday.
Here is the copy.

Ed Freeman

You’re an 18 or 19 year old soldier. You’re critically wounded, and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley , 11-14-1965. LZ Xray , Vietnam . Your Infantry Unit is outnumbered 8 - 1, and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 or 200 yards away, that your own battalion commander has ordered the MediVac helicopters to stop coming in.

You’re lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns, and you know you’re not getting out. Your family is halfway around the world and you know you’ll never see them again. As the world starts to fade in and out, you know this is the day.

Then, over the machine guns, you faintly hear the sound of a helicopter, and you look up to see a Huey, but it doesn’t seem real, because no MediVac markings are on it.

Ed Freeman is coming for you. He’s not MediVac, so it’s not his job, but he’s flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire, after the MediVacs were ordered not to come.

He’s coming anyway.

And he drops it in, and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 2 or 3 of you on board.

Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire, to the doctors and nurses.

And he kept coming back...... 13 more times..... and took about 30 of you and your buddies out, who would never have gotten out otherwise.

Medal of Honor Recipient Ed Freeman died last Wednesday at the age of 80, in Boise , ID ......May God rest his soul.....

Didn’t see this anywhere before this.

A real hero is gone.
Tet.

We all have a Saving Grace.
Even MEL despite his Alcoholism.
Even OKSANA despite her own human frailties.

So, despite all, MEL’s accurate and compelling depiction of our loving sacrifices made for one another in a Valley of Death long ago and far away continue to inspire others today upon seeing “WE WERE SOLDIERS “

A Story so compelling it personally inspired the filming of the ultimate Story of LOVE and SACRIFICE...

“The PASSION of the CHRIST”

True stories not to be lost in a sea of headlines.
