    Thank God for men like this. I know it is old but I just saw it and it bears remembering.

    RIP Ed

    Thanks for posting that. We're losing WWII Vets faster and faster. It sucks to lose Veterans of more recent conflicts as well.

    I wanted to be a pilot when I was younger, but my height was one of several things preventing this (I'm 6'6").

    I was happy that they gave him his CMH before his death. All the Ia Drang guys are truly incredible people. I had the honor of meeting Ed with Hal Moore, Joe Galloway and Sgt. Mjr. Plumley at an Ia Drang Reunion in D.C. a few years ago. They meet and go to the Wall each Veterans Day. There's not many of them left now. What a bunch of real American heros!

    I just finished reading a follow-up book to "We were Soldiers" by Hal Moore and Joe Galloway called "We Are Soldiers Still". It's really a good read.
