Joseph L. Galloway, Combat Journalist, on Vietnam [Video]

Galloway speaks with respect for both the enemy and his fellow soldiers in the war in Vietnam.

Decorated combat journalist, Joseph Galloway, co-author of We Were Soldiers Once . . . And Young, speaks to the courage and decency of the “ordinary soldier” while sharing his experience of Ia Drang—the battle that changed the war in Vietnam.

“My best friends, my most loyal friends, are soldiers—ordinary soldiers. . . . If they were not as fine and courageous and decent, as they were, in battle, standing alongside me, I would not be here.”
