Amen!

Sadly, this is as relevant today as in Vietnam.

Vaq I may have to watch it again, but I thought it was the Korean war but now I'm wondering myself. I'll get back to you on it after I watch it again. Old age has it's price.

the first major battle between the U.S. and NVA / VC of Vietnam circa 1965. The French got their asses handed to them there from the late 50's I believe....I am all Googled out this evening so memory will have to suffice.

My apologies you are correct and I am wrong it was the Vietnam war. Good movie and I liked Reagan.

they liked Reagan more than they realized
now that the country has gone to the dog
pound. And the White House has turned
into a hog pin. No that;s not right, hogs
have some value.

I found it: "The trouble with our liberal friends is not that they're ignorant; it's just that they know so much that isn't so."

APOLOGIES TO DOCKIT! I know he is a conservative brother!

Sometimes my jokes don't work. Go dockit!

Great movie

I used to play cards with a girl who's dad was one of the sgts in the lost platoon. To this day she said he had a hard time dealing with it.

America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall. If you don't stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!

My favs

The Patriot, Matrix, Master and Commander, Robin Hood (not the disney version), In the Line of Fire, and Last Man Standing. I watched The Outlaw Josey Wales for the first time today, it definately makes the list too.

Nothing is as risky as certain failure.

I'm surprised more folks didn't know about this one. The movie, which is a great one, was based on the book "We Were Soldiers Once...And Young" by Lt. Gen. Harold Moore and a war correspondent named Joe Galloway. It was published in 1992. It is non-fiction (by Hollywood standards anyway). Didn't google...didn't have to. This is good stuff and should be in your library if you're a reader at all.

@OozeRat - You just saw Josey Wales for the first time today?!?! Hard to wrap my mind around that sir. Probably the best non-John Wayne western ever made.

Just because it's legal don't mean it's right.

I'd have to agree beaudarvil though I have never seen an entire John Wayne movie, attempted to many times but at that age I had a very hard time sitting through an entire movie no matter how good it was. Honestly I had never heard of Josey wales until I was at my in laws and my father in law was watchin it, it was about half over. Also the movie came out in 1976, if I'm not mistaken, a little before my time.
