What America's Warriors Read

Finally reading the inspiring, yet heartbreaking, account of the 1965 Battle of the Ia Drang Valley in Vietnam. The book is We Were Soldiers Once...And Young by Lt. Gen. Hal Moore (Ret.).

In many ways the book is one about love, agape, self-sacrificial love. The men of the 1st. Cavalry Division in Vietnam understood what Jesus Christ said when he stated that there is no greater example of love than laying your life down for a friend.

In 1983 the Marine Corps leadership recommended that Marines read this book. Here's what the Marine Corps reading list looks like right now.
