Four Vietnam Vets in an old Cadillac destined for disaster ...
9 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Really not much of a welcome home for four Vietnam Green Berets. Along the road, on the way to California, they are treated with almost total indifference or slightly worse. Their trip through Texas and into New Mexico is mostly girl chasing, with one tragic event early on. Eventually the old Caddy breaks down. Out of money and out of gas, Joe Don Baker instigates a final confrontation with the locals, who prove no match for four Green Berets. Soon the National Guard arrives on the scene with some real fire power, and suddenly it's war in New Mexico. With thankfully zero car chases, and several interesting stops along the way, "Welcome Home Soldier Boys" is an intriguing road film you should see. - MERK
