Up Front
26 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To me the movie Up Front was one of the three best movies ever filmed. It is the only true movie I have seen about a real combat soldier and what they have to endure. It is too bad this movie is not recorded for sale on a DVD or VHS so our children and adults can see what a Real Soldier is and not some Hollywood Actor like we see portrayed in all the other War movies I have seen. Please record this movie so we can enjoy it once again. I have looked for a copy of it for 50 years or more and would pay dearly for one. I served 22 years in the United States Air Force and am 100% disabled because of this service. I do have the book but the movie is better. Any information concerning if and where I could purchase a copy of this movie would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help and information. GOD BLESS THE UNITED STATES OF America AND THE WHOLE WORLD. I have tried several times to get the word America in capital letters but do not seem to be able to. If you post this please be sure the word America is in capitals.
