Review of My Father, My Son
29 August 2002 | by (Las Vegas, NV USA) – See all my reviews

I personally served on Swift Boats, in Viet Nam, with both Zumwalts. Admiral Zumwalt was our Commander of Naval Forces in Viet Nam. I served with his son at An Thoi, Viet Nam. This movie is extremely accurate. I wish this movie would be released in DVD and shown, again, on TV. Thank you for the opportunity to write my opinion.

James P. Thomas Past President, Swift Boat Sailors Association, Inc.
