"War is about men who love their country but even more than that love each other. I left that battlefield knowing that they will continue to sacrifice for me. There are some events that are so overwhelming you can't simply be a witness. You can't be above it you can't be neutral you can't be untouched by it. You see it, you live it, you experience it and it will be with you all of your days." -- Joseph "Joe" Galloway, from "Vietnam in HD" on the History Channel.
Editor's note: Longtime journalist Galloway, who served as a war correspondent in the battle of Ai Drang during the Vietnam War, has been decorated for his bravery under fire. He's also the author of "We Were Soldiers Once, and Young" with Lt. Gen. Harold Moore (Ret.), which has since been made into a movie; and he's featured in the excellent Michael Samstag documentary about war correspondents in the current era, called "War & Truth."
