Storyline

In 1972 Vietnam, a group of United States Marines are sent in to rescue several POW officers. The Landing Zone (LZ) which should have been "cold" actually turns out to indeed be very "hot" (characterized by violent and forceful activity or movement ; very intense). Soon, after a short fight, only four of the soldiers are left alive. Later, the platoon which they were to meet the next day is entirely wiped out with the exception of one nut-case. The small group then arrives at the conclusion that they are all expendable decoys. Between all of the walking, talking, arguing and assaulting between the four soldiers, there are flashbacks to all of their contrite lives before serving in the Corps.

The most awful and insulting movie about soldiering in Viet Nam
20 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now I left an infantry unit in '67, so MAYBE things changed, BUT CERTAINLY NOT TO THIS EXTREME.

Nobody screamed at anybody in the field. That only happens in poorly administered basic training units and in garatrooper units where no one has ever been in a fire fight or seen a friend shot and die... and, of course, in this terrible movie and those so-called "militia units".

And All, or majority, Black units? Not when I was there, but of course, I left in '67. Maybe there was a surge of African American Patriotism afterwards, but I doubt it, particularly after MLK was assassinated in '68.

Now UNDERSTAND, I don't believe getting drafted or enlisting makes you a "patriot". Anyone who was in the woods 3-10 klicks a day, c rations, no bath for a month, digging a hole every day and doing ambush patrols, LP's and walking point will tell you where to stick your "Patriotism".

But ask me and I'll put up Muhammad Ali, the kids that died at Kent State, and the thousands that were beaten and jailed burning their draft cards... and most heroic...our "enemy". Can you imagine living on a cup of rice a day fighting against the most powerful army on earth???

That took a pair. And THIS MOVIE SUXXXES!
