Still unknown about Mr. Garwood
31 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I read above at the other comments and notice all the scorn and contempt everyone throws on this movie. I saw it but remember very, very little. I would like to see it again with more of an unbiased eye. I mention also that I served 8 years in the Army during the Persian Gulf War and was honorably discharged. I see many of the comments portray Mr. Garwood as a traitor. I read the book written by him released after he came back to the states in 1979 and never have really known what happened over there. He has made mention of the fact that he was not the last to leave over there so are we to assume that there are still others being held? I would like to find this again to see and will hold off expressing any opinion concerning Garwood because I don't have a real accurate way of knowing what he did experience. torture? brain washing? or crossing over? We will never really know, but I hold no malice towards this man.
