I saw this film just after returning from Nam.
8 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film just after I returned from Nam. A buddy in my unit had told me a story much like this about himself a few weeks before he died.And we were so much alike. I had no idea that I was going to see so much of him or me in this film.I don't think I could ever watch it again but I am happy that I did see it once. I had received a "Dear John" type letter from my then girlfriend while I was in-country and had felt sorry for myself. I now know that I was more fortunate than many others of that time. To this day I remember where I was and what I was feeling when I watched this film. By no means is this film a classic but Richard Thomas did a very good job of playing the part of many of us. I do hope that if young people watch it now that they can know who so many of us were at that time in our lives. Thank you if you see us in that way.
