    me too, but... I'm SO disappointed that it doesn't have closed

    me too, but... I'm SO disappointed that it doesn't have closed captioning or SDH! I can't watch it without captions. :-(

    I have been waiting over 25 years for China Beach to be released

    I have been waiting over 25 years for China Beach to be released from the vaults. As a high school and college student in the 60's, the Vietnam War was in my face every day of my life. I opposed the war, but obeyed the law. I had a 1-A draft card in my pocket, and God only knows why I was not called up.
    To watch China Beach is to be put into the world that created the world we live in now. Art is greater than history when the guts of the past need to be conveyed. Vietnam destroyed out adolescent innocence and shattered our illusion that our government was democratic and paid real attention to the needs and will of the people. More so than M*A*S*H, the real pathos of ordinary people caught up in madness not of their making is well protrayed in China Beach. Get it, enjoy it, show it to your children and grandchildren. Treat it as though it were as important as Shakespeare, only not in exotic old style English.
