Caption and explanation courtesy of Steve Hansen:

The officer to the right of Lt Col Moore is 1st Lt James L. (Larry)  Litton, XO of D 1/7 Cav.  In the Ia Drang he assumed command of D 1/7  when Capt Ray Lefebvre was wounded and evacuated. The officer in the right foreground with his back to the camera is Capt Richard Merchant who took command of D 1/7 after the battle.  The NCO in the left foreground with his back to the camera is 1st Sgt  Warren Adams, D 1/7.  
The first two Communist North Vietnamese Regular POW's of the Battle of IA DRANG fresh from LZ X-RAY are escorted from Helicopter to Helicopter at LZ FALCON by members of the HHC, 1/7 Cav. Associated Press Photographer is running to the right to get in front of them to take the picture that is in 'WE WERE SOLDIERS ONCE....AND YOUNG.' Shadow of me taking this picture is at lower left. I consider this Picture one of the best. Notice M-16 POW wounded knee on one of the POW's in the middle of the picture.
