"I Will Never Leave a Fallen Comrade"

I just got a message from Andrea Shea King, a radio host and friend in Florida, telling me that she is going to have two incredible guests on her show today.

Joe Galloway, the author (and former war correspondent) who wrote about the Battle of Ia Drang in Vietnam in his book, "We Were Soldiers Once... And Young," will be Andrea's guest during the first hour of the show which begins at 3pm eastern.

And during the second hour of the show, Lt. Col. Bruce Crandall, who was one of the heroic chopper pilots during the Battle of Ia Drang, will be interviewed. For his heroism during that battle, Crandall was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor in a ceremony at the White House on Monday.

What?! You don't know who Lt. Col. Bruce Crandall is? You mean you didn't read about this in your local paper, or see a report on your nightly news?

Well, Go here to get the story before Andrea's show comes on. The Army link has loads of information. Here is just one of the videos from that link:

Please tune in to Andrea's show online, to listen live, today at 3pm (EST).
