Storyline

This feature-length documentary focuses on the efforts by troops in the U.S. military during the Vietnam War to oppose the war effort by peaceful demonstration and subversion. It speaks mainly to veterans, but serves as a ready reminder to civilians that soldiers may oppose war as stridently as any civilian, and at greater personal peril. Written by Steve Fenwick (scf@w0x0f.com)

A must see especially for younger people today...
22 February 2011 | by MarieGabrielleSee all my reviews

Who are returning from Iraq, who have questions and no answers.

I was interested in this film because Jane Fonda (demonized by the recent influx of right wing media hate mongers) clearly was proud of her position against the Vietnam War.

There are so many officers and people who lived through this. The doctor who protests being a trainer for new recruits, he mentions how dermatologists were used by the army so they could aid the Vietnamese to thinking the U.S. was helpful, even while bombing their villages. Victims were women, children, and the elderly. It is sad to me that no one hears the truth in todays corporate media.

Anyone who was born in the 70's or 80's must see this film to get a real picture of what was happening at that time. The My Lai Massacre and other atrocities. The only way I became familiar with the resonance of destruction was having read poet Anne Sexton's "My Lai Soldier" and I was interested to read and research what actually happened in Vietnam.

It is so important since we are yet going through more troubled times as a nation, the wars and what they do to humanity should be understood, and learned from. Noteworthy also, I don't recall being taught about Vietnam in honors history, American History taught the colonial days and founding fathers. Something young people should be learning about as they are at a recruit-able age in high school. Highly recommended to anyone wanting to learn the disturbing facts and reality. 10/10.
