Well, I mean honestly, am I really that bad? I just like it when things are done properly, I guess I'm a bit of a perfectionist, it's not just with military things.

Just got off the phone with my uncle. His pick is a little-known film called "The Odd Angry Shot." Said that it portrays life there to a T. Gave him chills. He also said that We Were Soldiers was also very accurate regarding aviation, and that he works with a guy who was actually a door gunner (later became a pilot) at that battle--and he said it was pretty much exactly as depicted. My uncle's take on Platoon was that its depiction of drug use was fairly accurate--he saw quite a bit among ground crew, never any among air crew.

84C MoPic is about the best Vietnam movie I've seen.
Just saw that for the first time, my uncle was a motion picture photographer during the Vietnam era (stationed in Germany).  He's a film buff, naturally, and he went out of his way to get it for me.  Great film, proves that you dont have to have money or Hollywood stars to tell a compelling and realistic story. 

I'll repeat it because I know no ones ever heard of it:  84 Charlie Mopic.  Good shit.
Is that the one where the camerman dies at the end and the camera falls to the ground?
yeah

I must have ignored this thread, that is why I can't recall this.

The irony of guns, is that they can save lives.
