RIP Lt. Gen Hal Moore... Vietnam legend... Randall user

RIP General. Lt. Col. Hal Moore commanded the 1/7 Cavalry in the Ia Drang Valley battle in 1965, depicted by the book/movie "we were soldiers once..." He was a Vietnam legend for leading from the front. He was also combat company commander in Korea and much much more... over 200 jumps (airborne).



His Randall looks to be a 1950s era. I have been curious about what he carried and was close to getting a picture of Col. Moore with his Randall a couple of years ago at the SOF Association meeting. I regret not being able to accomplish that.

Rip Sir...
