Author and war correspondent Joe Galloway will be keynote speaker at Wyoming Vietnam Veterans Reunion


Joe Galloway

The Wyoming Vietnam Veterans “Welcome Home” Reunion will be held in Casper June 4-7. Here’s information about the keynote speaker and ways to register online:

Joseph L. Galloway, one of America’s premier war and foreign correspondents for half a century, recently retired as the senior military correspondent for Knight Ridder Newspapers.

During the course of 15 years of foreign postings—including assignments in Japan, Indonesia, India, Singapore and three years as UPI bureau chief in Moscow in the former Soviet Union–Galloway served four tours as a war correspondent in Vietnam and also covered the 1971 India-Pakistan War and half a dozen other combat operations.

The late Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf who first met Galloway in South Vietnam when he was a brand new Army major, called the Texan “the finest combat correspondent of our generation—a soldier’s reporter and a soldier’s friend.”

He is co-author, with Lt. Gen. (ret) Hal Moore, of the national bestseller “We Were Soldiers Once — And Young” which has been made into a critically acclaimed movie, “We Were Soldiers,” starring Mel Gibson. “We Were Soldiers Once — And Young” is presently in print in six different languages and more than 1.2 million copies have been sold.
