This is a gut-wrencher, 21 June 1999
Author: Whaler-2 from Chicago, IL

This does a fair job of depicting the problems many vets had after they came home from Vietnam. But I must warn the vets and any who might be squeamish....the end of this movie is very brutal. If any vets watching it have problems with dealing with Vietnam you may not want to see the end of the movie.
