Fw: Death of an American Hero and a Catholic one at that. Beau lives up the street from where he lived. His Wife, the UNSUNG HEOINE
Good Afternoon All,
Ed Riely shared the information above about a true hero being called home. The Beau that Ed refers to is Ed’s Son, Himself an Active Duty LTC, United States Army, who has been in our prayers in the past and is doing well. Lt.General Retired, Hal Moore, is best known as Commander, 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment at the Battle of LaDrang, Vietnam. The movie, ” We Were Soldiers ” was about LTC Moore and his men, a riveting story. He was called home on February 10, 2017.
A couple of quotes from Lt.General Moore talk to the man he was’
” There is no such thing as closure for Soldiers who have survived a War. They have an Obligation, a Sacred Duty to remember those who fell in Battle beside them all their days and to bear witness to the Insanity that is War.” Hal Moore
Another that he borrowed from Plato, “Only the Dead have seen the end of War.” Hal Moore.
We pray for Lt.General Hal Moore, his Family and Friends and the many he touched in his life and those he has been reunited with in God’s Eternal Embrace.
Thank you Ed. God Bless.
Colon, Philip J. (MC1962)
