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.
The entire films location production was not only nowhere near Vietnam, nor Southeast Asia, it was not even out of the United States. In fact it was not even out of the southern US.
Perhaps you could answer a question all of us here are asking?
Sergeant Muldoon: We'll try.
Hugh Parkinson: Why is the United States waging this ruthless war in Vietnam?
Sergeant Muldoon: Foreign policy decisions are not made by the military. A soldier goes where he is told to go, and fight whom is told...
[1:50] After the platoon has assembled in the drop-zone to bury their parachutes and helmets, two people in civilian clothing are seen screen-left lingering by the tree-line and duck in just after Kirby gives the order to move out.
141 minute version minus several scenes is what was shown on The Military Channel's "An Officer and a Movie".
