Just finished re-reading “We Were Soldiers Once ... and Young” yesterday.
Advise everyone to read it carefully at least once. The first time for the accounts of the steadfast courage displayed by the regular army officers and by the young draftees, many of whom were mere weeks away from their release dates.
The second time paying attention to the political policies of LBJ and McNamara prior and subsequent to this Ia Drang valley action. The policies that were from the outset designed for failure. Micro management of the war for parochial political gain by the man whose ‘Great Society’ legacy costs are still being paid today. May those men burn in hell forever.
Bless you for keeping the light of remembrance alive through your site. I salute you and your comrades in arms.
