Colonel Tony Nadal shared these comments. He was a company commander in 1/7 CAV at LZ Xray and later Assistant S3 (Operations Officer):
“General Moore always led from the front. He always exposed himself to the same dangers that the soldiers were facing and always faced the same privations as his troops.
Where other commanders commanded from helicopters, General Moore led from the ground. I recall flying with him to join a recon element in contact with the enemy in order that he could quickly determine the nature and intensity of the enemy contact and, thereby, determine the appropriate response.
As a Colonel he would on occasion join a rifle company on the assault.
When other officers lived in buildings back at base camp he remained in a tent until the soldiers had barracks.”
