Galloway is a Writer
of Fiction for LZ X-Ray
Before reading this below, I want to make this
very clear that Vincent Cantu is not guilty of what
Joe Galloway is accused him in the in the book We
Were Soldiers Once. This shows that Galloway would
throw anyone under a bus to create a fictional
story, even his high school classmate.
In one of the first accounts by Galloway of Ia
Drang that was done in 1983 article in Soldier of Fortune
Magazine. Vincent Cantu is in the Soldier of
Fortune Magazine and in We Were Soldiers Once… and
Young. The description in the
1983 Article and the 1992 Book are very difference.
The first thing is that Galloway couldn’t even write
Vincent’s name correctly in the 1983 article.
Galloway has it spelled as Vicent instead of
1983 article has Galloway’s account of Vincent Cantu
states Midmorning on
the 15th a trooper jumped out of a mortar
pit during a lull. Galloway again states a “blessed
lull” twice more. Yet in the
We Were Soldiers Book Galloway has Vincent Cantu
crawling on his
belly like a snake during a fierce battle to see who
the photographer was. Cantu then realized it
was Galloway a classmate.
In the Galloway book We Were Soldiers Once
Galloway states that he and Cantu “for a few brief
moments stole away from the battle raging around
them”. I don’t think for a second that Vincent
Cantu left his Mortar position to get his picture
taken by a photographer in the middle of a battle.
What Galloway is accusing Vincent Cantu is a
court-martial offence Article 99 (pages
229 & 478. Galloway by stating Vincent Cantu left
his position in the middle of a battle means he
Misbehavior Before the Enemy (pages
331 & 332).
Does anyone really think that Vincent Cantu left
his men in the heat of the battle to have a class
reunion? No. Galloway didn’t care about Vincent
Cantu, just his story. Just by comparing the two
stories between 1983 and the 1992 article you will
see what Galloway has done to a classmate.
Galloway didn't even have Vincent Cantu's name in
There is no question that Cantu never said those
words in the 1992 We Were Soldiers Once.. book. You
can see how Galloway re-wrote a 9 year old interview
to make himself look better at the expense of
