Thanks for posting this. I’m going to look up his book now thanks to you. May his memory be a blessing.
I guess you mean the photographer with UPI that was in South East Asia that was portrayed by the actor Barry Pepper. As long as you remember him he’ll never really be gone.Gene Roberts wrote
We Were Soldiers … was required reading for the Lieutenants at Fort Benning when I was an instructor at the Infantry Officers Basic Course. I made it a point to read every thing that my students were required to read. And … parts of the film were shot right there at the old Infantry School headquarters and housing areas. R.I.P. Joseph.
I am so sorry for your loss. I learned more in that movie about Vietnam then I ever did in history class. Absolutely AMAZING!!!! We spent roughly two weeks learning about Korea/Vietnam vs 6+ mths on WWII. I purchased it and only watched it once, it shook me to my core. The only others that have ever done that we’re Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down.
