This is an interview conducted in 2014, for the students of my friend who is a history teacher, with questions asked by the students. One of my first ever interviews. During the Vietnam War, Joe Galloway worked as a reporter for UPI, beginning in early 1965. Thirty-three years later, he was decorated with the Bronze Star for helping to rescue wounded American soldiers under fire during the battle at Landing Zone X-Ray in the Ia Drang Valley. He is known for co-authoring "We Were Soldiers Once....and Young" with Col. Hal Moore. Immortalised in film by Mel Gibson, with Barry Pepper playing Joe.
