I found this video clip on You Tube of Lt. Colonel Hal Moore, US Army, made famous by the movie We Were Soldiers.
I find clips like this simply amazing…this man had been through 3 days of living hell on earth, close-combat with a determined enemy, and yet, his remarks are as calm and postured as any professional. He represents the essence of a True Warrior.
And for those of you that think the reason for this “calmness” is because he was an officer, the CO, no less and was most likely in the “rear with the gear”, I would remind you, at the Battle of Ia Drang Valley, there was no “rear area”.. .no escape from the fighting….it was all hands on deck, every man fighting, every man a soldier…hell, even the press had to grab a rifle.
Stay Alert, Stay Armed and Stay Dangerous ! (Like Hal)
