War correspondent Joseph L.Galloway to speak at The Citadel

War journalist Joseph L. Galloway, co-author of the New York Times best seller “We Were Soldiers Once – and Young,” will visit The Citadel on Wednesday, Oct. 22 to talk about his new book “We Are Soldiers Still: A Journey Back to the Battlefields of Vietnam.”

Galloway has worked as a senior editor and writer for U.S. News & World Report, as a Washington bureau chief for United Press International, and as senior military correspondent for Knight-Ridder Newspapers. During his 15 years of foreign work, Galloway served four tours as a war correspondent in Vietnam, covered the 1971 India-Pakistan war, and half a dozen other combat operations, including Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm.

Galloway co-authored the “We Were Soldiers” books with retired Lt. Gen. Hal G. Moore. The first book became a 1992 movie starring Mel Gibson. In “We are Soldiers Still” Moore and Galloway reflect on how the Vietnam War changed them, their men, their enemies and both countries. They revisit relationships with 10 American veterans as well as the commander of the North Vietnamese Army.

The lecture is sponsored by The Citadel Leadership Studies program and The Citadel Alumni Association. It begins at 6:30 p.m. in the Holliday Alumni Center at 69 Hagood Ave. A book signing will follow the lecture. Both are free and open to the public.

Achieving excellence in the education and development of principled leaders
