Just saw a sign today at our PX announcing a book signing by Joseph Galloway to sign a book he wrote with LTG Moore in September. Book title: “We Are Soldiers Still; A Journey Back To The Battle Fields Of Vietnam”. I'll have to check it out for sure.

Here's a description.

In their stunning follow-up to the classic bestseller We Were Soldiers Once . . . and Young, Lt. Gen. Hal Moore and Joseph L. Galloway return to Vietnam and reflect on how the war changed them, their men, their enemies, and both countries—often with surprising results. More than fifteen years since its original publication, the number one New York Times bestseller We Were Soldiers Once . . . and Young is still required reading in all branches of the military. Now Moore and Galloway revisit their relationships with ten American veterans of the battle—men such as Sgt. Maj. Basil Plumley and helicopter pilot Bruce "Old Snake" Crandall—as well as Lt. Gen. Nguyen Hu An, who commanded the North Vietnamese Army troops on the other side, and two of his old company commanders. These men and their countries have all changed dramatically since the first head-on collision between the two great armies back in November 1965.

Well I've got a book that says they were being used and that they were like a prototype. Also Dirty Harry did not fight at Rourkes Drift. He was in High plains drifter though, I know cos I saw it
