Take Note: A Conversation with Joe Galloway, a "Soldier's Reporter and a Soldier's Friend."

Jun 21, 2014

General Norman Schwarzkopf called him “the finest combat correspondent of our generation---a soldier’s reporter and a soldier’s friend.”

In his fifty-years in journalism, Joe Galloway was assigned to cover Japan, India, and the former USSR, among other places, reporting from numerous combat operations. 

In 1998, he received a Bronze Star Medal with Valor for rescuing wounded soldiers while under fire; the only medal of valor the U.S. Army awarded to a civilian for actions during the Vietnam War.

We’ll talk with him about the battle that changed the war in Vietnam, the book he co-authored with Lt. Gen. Hal Moore, “We Were Soldiers Once...and Young,” and about "sacred debts."
