Thank You Thomas

Although I never knew Thomas, I have nothing but the utmost respect for his involvement in the protection of this country. Any man fighting for his people is worthy of praise. So I wanted to take this time to commemorate the loss of this great man. My Vietnam class watched a movie called 'We Were Soldiers,' this movie really opened my eyes to what war is like, Thomas was a brave man for fighting and will always be. We will always remember his sacrifice.

For a detailed account of

IA DRANG

THE BATTLE THAT CHANGED THE WAR IN VIETNAM

please refer to

"WE WERE SOLDIERS ONCE...AND YOUNG"
by
LTG. HAROLD G. MOORE, US Army (Retired)
and
JOSEPH L. GALLOWAY

published by
HarperPerennial in 1993


*********************************************************


In November 1965, some 450 men of the
1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry, under the command of
LTC Harold G. Moore, Jr.,
were dropped by helicopter into a small clearing in the
Ia Drang Valley.
They were immediately surrounded by 2000 North Vietnamese
soldiers. Three days later, only two and a half miles away, a
sister battalion was chopped to pieces. Together, these
actions at landing zones X-RAY and ALBANY constituted one of
the most savage and significant battles of the Vietnam War.
How these men persevered - sacrificed themselves for their
comrades and never gave up - makes a vivid portrait of war at
its most inspiring and devastating.
General Moore and Joseph Galloway, the only journalist on the
ground throughout the fighting, have interviewed hundreds of men
who fought there, including the North Vietnamese commanders.
This devastating account rises above the specific ordeal it
chronicles to present a picture of men facing the ultimate
challenge, dealing with it in ways they would have found
unimaginable only a few hours earlier. It reveals to us as rarely
before, man's most heroic and horrendous endeavor.
