We Were Soldiers

Moore and his fellow soldiers fought bravely and courageously for days while the Vietnam soldiers derived their plans within the mountain stronghold, surrounding the troops until they couldn’t breathe.

Witness the extraordinary events that led Lt. Moore and his Regiment to victory through a hellish battle.
