Since he's a bit of a legend, thought I would post this. Here's a taste:

We were privileged to march with and get to know some great military commanders at all levels -- soldiers and Marines -- such as my best friend and co-author Hal Moore, Marine commander Lew Walt, Hank Emerson, David Hackworth, Charlie Beckwith, Sam Wilson, Norm Schwarzkopf and on and on. Too many great infantry non-coms and too many bold, brave, insane helicopter jockeys to begin naming.

It was a pleasure to share a foxhole or a watering hole with any one of them, especially on a very bad day.
