40th Anniversary Dinner class=

The following photos were taken at the Hilton in Chrystal City, and the Omni Shoreham during the Ia Drang 40th Anniversary dinner in 2005. Additional photos were taken on Veterans Day and at the Ia Drang Veterans Sunrise Service on Sunday morning. These photos are shown here as a tribute to all who served, especially those who gave their all for our country in the Pleiku and Ia Drang Valley Campaign in November 1965, and to those who are currently serving.

The U.S. News & World Report Oct 29, 1990 cover story by Joe Galloway provides a good summary of the Ia Drang battle. See also Joe Galloway's speech at the Air War College on 22 October 1996 on the relationship of the warrior and the media.
