    It is with a heavy heart to announce to our Vietnam Veterans and First Team family of the death of Hal Moore (94). For those not familiar with General Moore, he was the commander of 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment (Gary Owen!). The movie "We Were Soldiers Once and Young" depicted his battalion in the Battle of Ia Drang Vietnam. Mel Gibson played the role of the younger Hal Moore.

    I hear it is just to the left of the southern most Western Gate and it can't be missed because of wooden fences and the mounts down there.
