A tribute to Lieutenant Colonel Hal Moore
Shadows in the Dust
The best scene in this movie was where Hal Moore stepped aboard the chopper - the last one to step off.
The Colonel stands in solitude before the rising sun,
Earned A Seal Of Quality
This is also inspired by the movie We Were Soldiers, which in my opinion, was one of the best war movies ever made, as it depicted both the US troops and the Vietnamese as being human, just like everyone else. The Vietnamese were family men protecting their country, and who would do whatever they had to, to achieve that. Just like Americans would do, or any other countrymen called to arms.
Who were we to judge?
