LTG Hal Moore

Harold Gregory "Hal" Moore, Jr. (February 13, 1922 – February 10, 2017) was a United States Army lieutenant general and author. He was a recipient of the Distinguished Service Cross, the U.S. military's second highest decoration for valor, and was the first of his West Point class (1945) to be promoted to brigadier general, major general, and lieutenant general.


Moore is best remembered as the lieutenant colonel in command of the 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment, at the Battle of Ia Drang in 1965, during the Vietnam War. The battle was made into the movie We Were Soldiers in 2002, which starred actor Mel Gibson as Moore; Moore was the "honorary colonel" of the regiment.
