Col. Mike Kirby picks two teams of crack Green Berets for a mission in South Vietnam. First off is to build and control a camp that is trying to be taken by the enemy the second mission is to kidnap a North Vietnamese General.
When the movie was released several critics pointed out that Green Berets were not usually 60 years old.
Was my Peter-san brave?
While wearing fatigues stateside (presumably at Ft Bragg) all enlisted personnel are wearing subdued rank insignia etc. Yet when they deploy to DaNang, Vietnam (presumably a combat zone) all enlisted personnel are wearing full-color rank insignia (gold stripes, etc).
The need for subdued insignia is so as to not allow the enemy see it from very far away and/or easily determine who outranks who. Would seem like this combat precaution would not be in play at Ft Bragg, but sure would once deployed "in country."
In the original UK cinema version the BBFC edited some shots of a man impaled with a tree branch for an 'A' (PG) certificate. All later releases were uncut.
