[Moore and Geoghegan a prayer before leaving for Vietnam
] Lt. Colonel Hal Moore
: Our Father in Heaven, before we go into battle, every soldier among us will approach you each in his own way. Our enemies too, according to their own understanding, will ask for protection and for victory. And so, we bow before your infinite wisdom. We offer our prayers as best we can. I pray you watch over the young Jack Geoghegan. That I lead into battle. You use me as your instrument in this awful hell of war to watch over them. Especially if they're men like this one beside me, deserving of a future in your blessing and goodwill. Amen. 2nd Lieutenant Jack Geoghegan
: Amen. Lt. Colonel Hal Moore
: Oh, yes, and one more thing, dear Lord, about our enemies, ignore their heathen prayers and help us blow those little bastards straight to Hell. Amen.
[to Major Crandall
] 2nd Lieutenant Jack Geoghegan
: Our guys are being killed, sir, you gotta get us in there!
2nd Lieutenant Jack Geoghegan
: Barbra and I spent a year in Africa. We helped build a school for orphans. They were orphans because the warlord across the border didn't like their tribe. I know that God has a plan for me, I just hope it's to help protect orphans, not make any.
