Holiday Greeting - Why Do American Soldiers Fight?

| November 09, 2016
Share |

“American soldiers in battle don’t fight for what some president says on TV. They don’t fight for Mom, apple pie, the American flag. They fight for one another. ”1

Stars and Stripes used the words of Lieutenant Colonel Harold “Hal” Moore, commander of the 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry, to frame its 2016 edition of Heroes, a tribute to valor shown during the war on terrorism. Moore led outnumbered troops to victory in Ia Drang Valley in 1965, which was the first major battle of the Vietnam War.1

This Veteran’s Day, you may want to take time to read about heroes — the men and women who have put their lives on the line to defend our country and our way of life. You can learn more about veterans on various websites including:
