Hal Moore a Soldier a Leader - Today's episode features historian Mike Guardia. Co-host Josh Mantz said to Pete A Turner, following his episode of BIDS, I'd love to talk to Mike Guardia about his Hal Moore book...so Pete does what he always does. He booked Mike so that Josh could sit in on this conversation.
Hal Moore was an icon in leadership. His time in battle at La-Drang in Vietnam was captured in the book/movie, We Were Soldiers Once and Young, by Hal and Joe Galloway (who will appear on an upcoming episode of BIDS). Mike realized that nobody had written a comprehensive biography of LTG Moore...so, like a great officer Mike dove in and changed everything.
Mike's book is A Soldier Once and Always, be sure to get it on Amazon.
