Storyline

The story of A-Company 1/8 4th Infantry Division, US Army during the Vietnam War from 1965 to 1967. In the men's own words, through the stories they narrate, the film gives us insight into the time these men spent together and the bond they formed that remains unbroken to this day. The 4th Infantry Division is one of the only divisions that trained and retained its troops during the Vietnam War. The men of A-Company trained together for eleven months and served together for one year. Their story begins with basic training at Ft.

McNerney, who is the only living member of the 4th Infantry Division to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor. He was celebrated by the men he trained and served with and who's lives he saved on March 22, 1967. Conceived by executive producer John A. Ponsoll, whose... Written by Eric S. Dow

Excellent and honest
26 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is long past time to have documentaries of this quality, with such absolute honesty about the Vietnam War. The documentary tells the story in the words of real veterans who take us into the darkness of the jungle and the terror of war. We are permitted to see the deep and abiding affection they have for one another, and the love for those who were lost. The 4th Division in Vietnam was one of the most decorated, with three MOH recipients between 22 March 197 and 20 May 1967. This documentary is neither John Wayne nor Oliver Stone. It is a real account of a war no one understood. Watch it. If your PBS isn't showing this documentary, call and ask for it.
