Freeper Alert: ..'WE WERE SOLDIERS'.. Hero's Medal of Honor Papers "Lost"..
'WE WERE SOLDIERS' Forum / www.LzXray.com ^ | Son of BRUCE CRANDALL (Greg Kinnear)

Posted on 03/06/2002 9:41:22 AM PST by ALOHA RONNIE

NEVER FORGET

...MEL GIBSON and RANDALL WALLACE's new Vietnam War Masterpiece ..'WE WERE SOLDIERS'.. which came out Nationwide March 1, 2002 ...very realistically depicts the Heroism of many taking care of each other on the Battlefield and those Loved Ones doing the same at Home while waiting for their Heroes far away to come home ...or not.

...Actor ..GREG KINNEAR.. portrayed Commander Helicopter Pilot ..BRUCE "Snake" CRANDALL.. Hero of this Battle of the IA DRANG Valley in November 1965 ..the first Major Battle between invading North Vietnamese Communist Army Regulars and American Forces. That American Force was my 1st Battalion U.S. 7th Cavalry Regiment heavily supported by Air and Artillery.

...Major BRUCE CRANDALL over and over again flew into heavy fire to bring in crucial Ammunition, Food and Water into our 7th Cavalry Skytroopers at Landing Zone X-Ray and to take out our wounded and dead ..which were many ..that I personally carried from his Helicopter to others waiting at our Artillery's Landing Zone Falcon nearby.

...CRANDALL always led his Wingman Capt ED 'Too Tall" FREEMAN into the Fires who was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor by President GEORGE W. BUSH in a White House Ceremony at the White House last year for his own Heroism at Landing Zone X-Ray.

...So as not to have any appearance of a Conflict of Interest BRUCE "Snake" CRANDALL asked that the Paperwork for his own Congressional Medal of Honor be be held back since he was ED FREEMAN's Commanding Officer and was supporting his award.

...I have just learned as a result of my calling into BRUCE "Snake" CRANDALL on The MICHAEL MEDVED Show Monday from His son ...who was in Studio at the time and had started to smile broadly when I asked his Father just when we would be seeing him get his own Congressional Medal of Honor he so richly deserves.. that...

...BRUCE CRANDALL's Congressional Medal of Honor Paperwork that had been submitted to the Office of Former State of Washington Senator GORTON (R) ...and was "Misplaced" when this Senator was defeated by Senator MARIA CANTWELL (D).

...Is there anything we Freepers can do to see that this True American Hero gets what he so richly deserves...?

Time to crank up the FREEPER machine again Ronnie. This misplaced paperwork story by Cantwell's office is BS if true. I listened to Bruce Crandall on Medved's show the other night. It was a great interview and call in session. LTC Crandall won't press the issue for himself. It will take people like you and me to right a wrong.

LET'S ROLL!

Might also highlight Mark Kirk. Until taking office last year, he was still flying a EA-6B in the reserves.

AR, do you have any articles of info on this "loss"?

ALOHA RONNIE,

When you have the time, take a look at this: HEROES OF THE VIETNAM GENERATION by James Webb

A friend of mine sent me the article just this week and recommends it as required reading. I think you will agree.

Thanks for the ping. I got to listen to Crandall on The Michael Medved Show and he
really impressed me, as well as filling in some of the "gaps" the I either missed or weren't
in the film.

ALOHA RONNIE, you called in to that show didn't you? I've heard you on the
radio so many times...I start to lose track! LOL! Guess I need some of that "Focus Factor"
or "Feed My Brain" stuff!"


My wheelchair-bound father just finished reading "Blackhawk Down"...I've got
him set to start into "We Were Soldiers Once...And Young" for his next book.

I have just learned as a result of my calling into BRUCE "Snake" CRANDALL
on The MICHAEL MEDVED Show Monday


If I'd only learn how to speed-read (so I could do each thread justice)...I'd known that
yes, I did hear you on Monday!

My scrambled memory is my reward for trying to get work done and listen to the radio
at the same time.
I'm not the world's greatest "multi-tasker"!

I called Maria Cantwell's office and spoke with Sara R., she said she doesn't know anything about this matter and that the person who handles military stuff was out sick today. She took my number and all the details regarding this and said she will get back to me with something tomorrow.
Anything else I can do?

Dear Senator Cantwell,

It has come to my attention that your office may be negligent in processing a Medal of Honor recommendation for Lieutenant Colonel (R) Bruce Crandall that was being reviewed by you predecessor, Senator Gorton. In case you are somehow unfamiliar with LTC Crandall, he is the Army officer and aviator who, in November, 1965, was flying helicopter support for the 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division in the battle of Ia Drang Valley of (then) South Vietnam. LTC (then Captain) Crandall's exploits during the battle of LZ X-Ray are legendary among Army Aviators. He exposed himself and his crews to withering enemy fire on at least 22 seperate occasions during this pitched battle in order to re-supply the unit and save the lives of wounded soldiers.

The fact that 1-7 Cav survived the horrendous onslaught of North Vietnamese Army units are due in large part to LTC Crandall's selflessness, courage and endurance during the battle for LZ X-Ray. His actions are described in detail in the book "We Were Soldiers Once, and Young". This is a first hand account of the battle for the Ia Drang Valley by Lieutenant General Hal Moore (R), the battalion commander of 1-7 Cav during the battle, and Joe Galloway, a pulitzer prize winning journalist and war correspondent who was also present at LZ X-Ray. I invite you to read the accounts of LTC Crandall's heroism in this book.

I also invite you to view the film based on this book that is currently showing nationwide. It is a gripping account of that battle and all who fought in it, including LTC Crandall.

Ronnie, this is the message I sent to Senator Cantwell's office. I ran out of space to finish it but I'm confident she'll get the message about LTC Crandall. I also recommend contacting the Vietnam Helicopter Pilot's Association and the Army Aviation Association of America (AAAA). They can have a big impact on getting Senator Crandall and her staff off the bubble. Let me know if there's anything else I can do.

Thanks for the ping, Ronnie. I'm certain that this was a simple oversight on Ms. Cantwell's part and that she would even take time off from a fundraiser to honor Bruce Crandall for risking his life for her freedom to live in the style she's accustomed to. Please keep us informed...we'll keep Ms. Cantwell informed. (^:

The following is just the main highlight.

BRUCE CRANDALL's Congressional Medal of Honor Paperwork
(for actions in the Battle of the IA DRANG Valley in November 1965)
that had been submitted to the Office of Former State of Washington Senator GORTON (R)
and was "Misplaced" when this Senator was defeated by Senator MARIA CANTWELL (D).
Is there anything we Freepers can do to see that this True American Hero gets what he so richly deserves...?

It's a 2 thumbs up.
I NEVER go to see new movies at the theater, but this one I went opening day, 1st showing, bought 1st ticket.
IT IS A MUST SEE MOVIE!
It will make anyone who sees it cry.
But at last a movie with no profanity, no nudity and tells the story of brave men
doing what was asked of them by their country.
Viet Nam vets shown in their true light!

I would be more than happy to hound Maria Cantwell if that is what it takes to get our government to give the honor and respect to this man that he so richly deserves. I'll begin first thing in the am and report what happened.

From one of my favorite web sites Official full text listings of all U.S. Medal of Honor winners.

 

FREEMAN, ED W.

The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress,
March 3, 1863, has awarded in the name of The Congress the Medal of Honor to

CAPTAIN ED W. FREEMAN
UNITED STATES ARMY

for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty:

Captain Ed W. Freeman, United States Army, distinguished himself by numerous acts of conspicuous gallantry and extraordinary intrepidity on 14 November 1965 while serving with Company A, 229th Assault Helicopter Battalion, 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile). As a flight leader and second in command of a 16-helicopter lift unit, he supported a heavily engaged American infantry battalion at Landing Zone X-Ray in the Ia Drang Valley, Republic of Vietnam. The unit was almost out of ammunition after taking some of the heaviest casualties of the war, fighting off a relentless attack from a highly motivated, heavily armed enemy force. When the infantry commander closed the helicopter landing zone due to intense direct enemy fire, Captain Freeman risked his own life by flying his unarmed helicopter through a gauntlet of enemy fire time after time, delivering critically needed ammunition, water and medical supplies to the besieged battalion. His flights had a direct impact on the battle's outcome by providing the engaged units with timely supplies of ammunition critical to their survival, without which they would almost surely have gone down, with much greater loss of life. After medical evacuation helicopters refused to fly into the area due to intense enemy fire, Captain Freeman flew 14 separate rescue missions, providing life-saving evacuation of an estimated 30 seriously wounded soldiers -- some of whom would not have survived had he not acted. All flights were made into a small emergency landing zone within 100 to 200 meters of the defensive perimeter where heavily committed units were perilously holding off the attacking elements. Captain Freeman's selfless acts of great valor, extraordinary perseverance and intrepidity were far above and beyond the call of duty or mission and set a superb example of leadership and courage for all of his peers. Captain Freeman's extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit and the United States Army.

Hey Ron. It was good to hear you on FR Radio last night.

You are to be commended for leading the charge on this major task.

Senator Cantwell will not be able to make a claim of not knowing anything about LTC. Crandall by weeks end.

Since I'm in letter writing mode re: Condit, a few more letters will be my task tomorrow.

Thanks for all your efforts - General RON. How's that for a field promotion? Wear those stars proudly.

...As Always ...Thanks for listening, Diver Dave.

...The morning after Tuesday's Califorinia Primary GARY CONDIT Loss I called my Congressman, House Speaker DENNIS HASTERT and House Minority Leader DICK GEPHARDT reminding them to make good on their promise to us to take action on CONDIT's still sitting on the House Intelligence Committee/Sub-Committee on Terrorism & Homeland Security in -Time of War- after the Voters in his District had spoken.

...Tuesday those Voters said "NO" to GARY CONDIT and fired him. Only thing is ..he still has 10 more months till the new Congress takes over in January 2003. That's 10 more months for GARY CONDIT to sit on the Committees overlooking our Protectors.

...It's now time to really protect those who have protected US ...like Battle of IA DRANG-1965 Hero BRUCE CRANDALL ...and remove those who really haven't.

...What a Great Victory against GARY CONDIT in Modesto this week, Diver Dave, thanks to you Freeper Heroes who ARE protecting us by demonstrating against him every single Saturday outside his Modesto Office in front of the Country's Media.

WELL DONE.
