For Fans of the Green Berets (get the new DVD version), 31 October 2006
Author: politico81 from United States

I've been a big fan of the Duke since my Dad used to show me his movies when I was younger. The Green Berets has always been one of my favorites. This movie is the perfect real life companion to that movie. And the Roan Group just put out a new edition which combines new interviews with the original 1970 footage. There's a senator from California named Dana Rohrabacher, who was a big supporter of Ronald Reagan in the 1980s (or so it seems from the countless pictures of him with Reagan on his office walls), Major General John Singlaub, and Tony Blankley, who edits for the Washington Times and is a TV commentator. Pretty interesting perspectives. The Duke would be proud.
