Obviously was never there
15 January 2020 | by asmbeersSee all my reviews

Kari Matchett is far too good of an actress to be involved in this propaganda play. It is obvious to anyone who experienced the late 60's that what is being offered up by the writers is pure biased speculation with no research being done at all, and it is a shame.

I was in the Navy as a corpsman, my brother a Marine in the swamps of Vietnam. We both knew people who objected and people who ran. I am sure at least a few are still alive and could have been used as advisors for continuity, correctness, reality... three factors lacking from the script.

I suggest the tag line, based on a true story be removed for honesty's sake.
