I purchased this movie because I was there that night 45 years ago. I watched it on TV in the early 80's.
Recently, 11 of us veterans from C Co. 1/6 198 Bde, met in D.C. for first time in 45 years. one of the vets
was severly wounded that night and wanted to find out what happened. We were able to talk about it
Mistakes like this happen in all wars. It doesn't matter if it's small arms, artillery, or bombs, mistakes
happen. Rumors were going around that the guys who fired the round were drunk or on dope. Neither
were true. When we called a "cease fire", the guns were locked down. the guns were set correctly. It
seemed like it took forever to find the cause. It looked like a cover-up. I knew of Mike Mullen, had not
met him personally. He was in another platoon.
I don't fault Mrs. Mullen's anti-war actions, she wasn't getting any answers from the Army.
Carol Burnett and Ned Beatty did a great job in their dramatic roles. Good movie.
