On the third day of the Xray fight, reporters and TV crews arrived as the troopers were being returned to base camp. You can see all of the coverage in the network news video dated November 18 (it took a while for the film to make it back for broadcast in 1965). Peter Jennings is clearly stunned by what he just heard at the end of the clip.

This segment is an extract capturing Hal Moore's emotion and tribute to his troopers. The movie, We Were Soldiers, had a similar scene based on this clip.
