Author: Harold G. Moore

Lieutenant General Harold Gregory Moore Jr. is a retired officer of the U.S. Army, and the co-author (with Joe Galloway) of two successful books (‘We Were Soldiers Once… And Young’ & ‘We Are Soldiers Still: A Journey Back To The Battlefields Of Vietnam’) about the 1965 battle of the Ia Drang valley in Viet Nam, during most of which Moore (then a Lt. Colonel) was the primary U.S. officer commanding. Mr. Galloway was also present during much of the battle, as a combat correspondent for UPI. After a long and distinguished career including combat service in the Korean War previous to his service in Viet Nam, Lt. Gen. Moore retired in 1977. He was highly decorated during his career, earning the Distinguished Service Cross, Army Distinguished Service Medal, Legion Of Merit (3 Awards), Bronze Star (4 Awards, including 2 for valor), Republic of Vietnam Cross of Gallantry with Palm (3 Awards) and many other medals, decorations, and badges. A full length biography of Lt. Gen. Moore (‘Hal Moore: A Soldier Once… And Always’, by Mike Guardia) will reportedly be published by Casemate Publishers in September 2013.
