....and Young. Being Memorial Day weekend we watched this last night, I have seen now 2 or 3 times but last night we watched the special features and heard from the REAL Hal Moore and several other characters from the movie.

It was interesting in the (Hals) book how he says "Hollywood has gotten Vietnam wrong every damn time." So, I ask any Vietnam Vets that watched it, what did you think?

We have all heard from the WWII men about "Saving Private Ryan"....

I have a very good friend who flew Huey's in Vietnam but he rarely talks about it (understandable)...I have always seen him as the "Snake s***" pilot...

And again thank you to ALL our service men past and present. I salute you.

I've never sat and watched the whole thing,but some of the parts I've seen will hit a nerve.
