Vietnam War, Lt Col Hal Moore

When Lt Col Moore learns from a superior officer that his unit will be known as the 1st Battalion / 7th cavalry regiment, he is disquieted because the 7th Cavalry regiment was the battalion commanded by General Custer when he and his unit was slaughtered at the Battle of the Little Bighorn.

So before leaving for service in Vietnam, Moore tells his unit that he will not leave anyone behind, dead or alive. Great casting putting Mel Gibson in the role as Lt Col Moore.

Nice paint job for the M16 with the metallic shine
