Lions in Winter – One Impressive Picture

Sunday, February 12th, 2012

LTG Hal Moore, SGM Basil Plumley and Joseph Galloway rendering honors at a ceremony at Ft Benning, dedicating a statue to Lt Rick Rescorla. A Lieutenant during the Battle of Ia Drang, Rescorla rose to the rank of Colonel in the Army Reserves. Unfortunately, he died while working to save people in the south World Trade Center tower on 9/11/01.

I find this somber yet inspirational at the same time.

Not that I have anything against the movie, but if you haven’t read Mr Galloway’s classic We Were Soldiers Once and Young, you really really should. Thank you Mr Galloway for your picture, thank all four of you for everything.

They were soldiers once, and young
