Commanding the air cavalry unit, Lieutenant Colonel Hal Moore (Mel Gibson) is a born leader committed to his troops who are getting ready for the first battle of the Vietnam War. The story line is how he leads his men into the Ia Drang Valley in Vietnam. The story also talks about the minor plot back at home where Moore's wife (Madeleine Stowe) along with another wife take over the job of delivering telegrams informing relatives of soldiers deaths to relatives that live at Fort Benning, the units base of operation. Before leaving for service in Vietnam, Moore delivers a touching speech to his unit. "I can't promise you that I will bring you all home alive, but this I swear : I will be the first one to set foot on the field, and I will be the last to step off. And I will leave no one behind. Dead, or alive, we all come home together." The night before their departure for Vietnam a sort of a party for the officers assigned to the mission is celebrated. In this passage LTC Moore learns from a superior officer that his unit will be known as the 7th regiment, he is disquieted because the 7th Cavalry regiment was the regiment commanded by General Custer which was slaughtered at the Battle of the Little Bighorn, and because Lyndon B. Johnson decreed that the war would be fought "on the cheap" without declaring it a national emergency, hence depriving Moore of his oldest, best-trained soldiers (a formal declaration of war would have meant mobilization and extension of the terms of enlistment for volunteer soldiers) -about 25% of his battalion- just prior to shipping for Vietnam. The story then goes to the battle and switches between the Vietnamese and American forces view. In the movie, the Vietnamese troops were treated with respect. At the end of the three days of fighting, the seemingly victorious G.I.'s leave. The movie puts a strong emphasis that Moore is the last one to set foot off the field of battle, once he's been assured that all his men dead or alive have been recovered from the battlefield.
