KURE BEACH, NC (WECT) - A retired military officer and a noted war correspondent will help honor veterans during an event in Kure Beach.
The Friends of Fort Fisher, the New Hanover Veterans Council and Fort Fisher State Historic Site are holding a Veterans Open House.
The event will feature two special guests: Ret. Col. Joe Marm who received a Medal of Honor for his actions during the la Drang battle in Vietnam and Joe Galloway, a war correspondent on the ground during that battle. Galloway co-authored the book We Were Soldiers Once-- And Young with Ret. Lt. General Hal Moore.
Veterans and their families are invited to meet the two men, have books signed and take photographs. There will be a limited number of copies of We Were Soldiers Once-- And Young for sale, but it is recommended that people bring their own.
