Storyline

The 1991 Persian Gulf War is a military triumph for the United States. But when thousands of returning veterans start to develop medical problems, it appears that the military is trying to downplay or ignore the situation. It takes perseverance on the part of military families and members of Congress to bring to light the dilemma and prompt action on the part of the government. Written by Ron Kerrigan

A commercial, soapy, protracted muddling of fact and fiction.
12 June 2001 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"Thanks of a Grateful Nation" is a docudrama which attempts to tell the tale of Gulf War Syndrome. A Showtime commercial journeyman drama which muddles fact with fiction in the interest of entertainment, "Thanks..." runs too long at three hours, slogs around in woebegone soapy sentimentality with fictional subplots, is fraught with overtones of paranoia, and doesn't do justice to the interests and people it pretends to support. Those interested in GWS can find the real deal easily on the Inet. Pass on this one.
