On Monday, November 16, 2015, I attended a lecture by retired United States Army Colonel Ramon “Tony” Nadal at Washington & Jefferson College in Washington, PA. Fifty years previously – November 14-16, 1965 – Nadal was a Captain and a company commander in the 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment at the Battle of Ia Drang.
Colonel Nadal was Medal of Honor recipient Joe Marm‘s company commander, and himself received the Silver Star for his own heroism during the battle. My interview with Joe Marm was broadcast as part of the November 14, 2015 edition of Their Finest Hour on Vigilant Liberty Radio.
The below recording is unedited. I hope you find it interesting.
