“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
