General Norman Schwarzkopf called him “the finest combat correspondent of our generation—a solder’s reporter and a soldier’s friend.” In his 50 years in journalism, Joseph Galloway was assigned to cover Japan, India and the former USSR, among other places, reporting from numerous combat zones. But he is best known for reporting on the Vietnam War. His best-selling book, “We Were Soldiers Once—and Young,” was written with Lt. General Hal Moore. It’s about their experiences at the battle of Ia Drang, a turning point in the Vietnam War. The book was later made into a movie starring Mel Gibson and Barry Pepper.
