H/T to Pacific Paratrooper

Galloway was the quinessential Combat Correspondent and an amazing writer to boot.

He was one of the few to chronicle the War in Vietnam without political prejudice or bias.

Galloway was decorated with a Bronze Star Medal with V in 1998 for rescuing wounded soldiers under fire during the la Drang battle. He is the only civilian awarded a medal of valor by the U.S. Army for actions in combat during the Vietnam War.
