if you were born before 1960 you could imagine being in it somewhere. There are movie reels from WWI, WWII, Korean and Vietnam Wars that provide background. It's a dialog that skips around but always finishes with an 85yr old man looking at his place in the Vietnam war. It's poignant in that he appears alone. It's incredibly relevant given the Iraq war where circumstances and individuals shift policy and resouces to war. I recommend it.
