Citadel hosts fundraising dinner and movie screening
U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Harold G. Moore (ret.) and Joseph L. Galloway, writers of the book on which the movie was based, will attend.
On Nov. 14, 1965 in the Central Highlands
Capt. Tom Metsker was wounded in the Ia Drang Valley. A 1961 graduate of The Citadel, Metsker gave up his seat on a helicopter for another officer more wounded than he, when he was shot again and killed.
The Metsker Leadership Education Fund was established in Metskers memory to help The Citadel with leadership initiatives, including the Greater Issues Lecture Series and the Institute for Leadership and Ethics.
