Quotes

Mingo: Yeah, I'll never forget the first letter I got from my wife. It started, "My darling, darling, darling, I'll never again use the word 'love' without thinking only of you." And I remember the last one I got from her. It started, "Dear T.J., this is the hardest letter I've ever had to write."

A Great and Poignant Movie!
6 August 1999 | by (Deltona, Florida) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was about eleven or twelve- years-old, and felt sad about Lloyd Bridges dying and being left behind. I also felt sad for James Edwards who was suffering for the loss of his friend. His suffering is what they call to day "PTSD" Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I saw the movie again a few months ago and still find it to be a great and poignant movie. Here are two men; one white and the other black,who deep inside see no color, but love for their fellow man and brother. I can attest to that, for being a combat wounded Viet Nam Vet, I saw how soldiers who were white,black,brown,etc. cried for one another when death was upon them. As God knows my heart, I love this movie and thank those that had the courage to first put it out there and to the great cast.
