Reviews: See National Geographic’s “Inside The Vietnam War”


There’s an increased resurgence of history’s facts, and increased respect for the bravery, decency and sacrifices of our far better young men in service, that is less suppressed by and relegated to slogans of the aging ‘60’s and ‘70’s radicals and hangers-on. This show is part of that recovery of sanity.

Tonight, National Geographic’s cable TV channel broadcast its 3-hour “Inside the Vietnam War.” It will be rebroadcast Sunday, February 24. Check your local listings for time, and don’t miss it.

Over 50 Vietnam veterans appear in the show, along with many never before seen photos and video footage. As the show’s announcement says, the show “features the harrowing firsthand accounts of the brave men and women who lived through the war.”

My friend R.J. Delvecchio (Del) was a Marine combat photographer in Vietnam. Some of his work is included in the program, and he briefly appears. Del wrote me about his experience with the show’s production and a special preview for veterans held in Washington, D.C.

The partial version I saw was very well done, reviewed some of the history of the war very objectively, then went into peoples' individual experiences, recollections, and reflections. Views ranged from those who were proud of their service, were fully supportive of helping S. Vietnam, and would go again, to one really negative reflection (from Philip Caputo) about it all being a waste.

The images and footage were very good, it actually was a real documentary with no major political slant.

If anything, the antiwar people will find it less than to their liking.

I went to DC for this shindig, at really substantial cost, and it was worth every penny six times over. About 40 of the people interviewed for the film showed up, plus a whole bunch of distinguished guests, like Mark Moyars and Dr. Bob Sorley. National Geographic put out one hell of a spread of food and drinks, and we got to stand around and talk and meet people that it was an honor to meet. Carlton Sherwood of Stolen Honor fame, Paul Galanti, a longtime POW, and assorted other distinguished veterans and others. It was just super.

After a couple of hours of schmoozing and munching, we filed into the theater section.

We were led in the Pledge of Allegiance by the head of the Blue Star Mothers organization, and it's hard to express the feeling of standing there reciting the pledge with so great a group of people, a pledge that came out loud, strong, clear, with pride and devotion in every tone from every person. Then one of the vets and his wife did a version of America The Beautiful that had an added new stanza, in which it was said that black, white, brown, red or yellow, we belong to America and to each other. A basic description of the best ideals of the America we know and love.

They then showed a half-sized version of the documentary, since 3 hours is too long for an audience of old guys! But it was extremely well done and everyone there was very happy with what they saw. (I only saw one of my pictures in the reduced version, but was assured the full version has more and even some of me talking.)

I hope you find it as worthwhile as I have.

Del


The middle-aged, protypically bearded advance reviewer at the New York Daily News says the show “lacks vision” in failing to stress the final futility of our efforts.

Thomas Lipscomb watched the full show tonight, and offers his review.

The NY Daily News guy just didn’t understand the show. He wanted his opinions punched and it wasn’t about that.

It was really from the POV of the subjects… it was truly INSIDE … not an overview by people with no experience and a lot of political attitude.

And despite the disproportionate coverage of Marines…[Lipscomb served in the Army] it was pretty damned good.

It didn’t start with the advisers and the build up… it started with the first arrival of combat forces in 65 and left with the departure of the US troops with a quick cut to the evacuation in 75.

Lovely choice of interviews, very different than Stanley Karnow’s.

A Chief Petty Officer, a lot of enlisted personnel from private to mid level sgts… almost all officers were company grade at the time, though like Bob Scales or MacCaffrey they may have retired as generals…

So it was a grunts eyeview with some good stuff from mainly Tac air… copters and just a few f4 drivers.

I liked it a LOT.

I would add, it is one of the few times I have ever seen a news program that actually let its subjects talk and followed with pictures and maps to illustrate what they said. The producers did keep things in a chronological order so that people actually were on camera at the time they were in action, but otherwise the description of the war, when the participants were optimistic, when there were breakdowns in discipline, the tragedy of My Lai described by those on the copter that stopped it.

It was sort of a throwback to the old Ed Murrow SEE IT NOW which tried for the same effect without the omniscient network news point of view.

P.S.: Another Vietnam veteran, actually a civilian AID worker captured and suffering for years as a POW, Mike Benge, was also at the National Geographic preview, and writes me with this added observation:

[T]hey put in the napalmed, naked little girl and Gen. Loan offing the VC who had just cut off the legs of the dependents in the police barracks, with no comment as to their context or any other explanation; the Americans had nothing to do with either, but by having them in there, it puts the blame on US troops.

For those who know little or nothing about the VN War, and for the antiwar crowd, just having these pictures in the film implies that the US troops had something to do with these incidents. The napalmed naked girl was hit by bombs from ARVN aircraft and was iconic and used as propaganda against the US troops by the antiwar crowd, as was the one by Gen. Loan. History has proven that the top news agencies in Vietnam were infiltrated by the NVA and I can only assume that they were responsible for the mislabeled caption accompanying the of the napalmed girl; picture for World-Wide publication and blaming the incident on US aircraft/troops. National Geographic should have known better.

Rev. Al Sharpton, Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Rev. Jesse Jackson are not the racists.

And if you say anything to deny this, you are a racist.

 
"Blacks should not sing "God Bless America" but "God damn America."   Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr
 
 
 
 
Does this make Barack Obama a hypocrite?
 
"I understand MSNBC has suspended Mr. Imus," Obama told ABC News, "but I would also say that there's nobody on my staff who would still be working for me if they made a comment like that about anybody of any ethnic group. And I would hope that NBC ends up having that same attitude."

On March 18, 2008, Senator Barack Obama said that his pastor, spiritual leader, mentor and great friend Rev. Wright is not anti-White and anti-United States.  Please watch the brief video and you decide if Rev. Wright hates White Americans and the United States as a whole...         http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=617eK2XIaLk&NR=1

A  CRIMINAL  CASE,  ETHICS  CASE,  CIVIL  CASE  OR  ALL  THREE...
 
A high level state Supreme Court attorney ethics official, Robert Correale misuses his government and court office to Cover-Up and block ethics violations and legal malpractice charges against his own law firm, Maynard & Truland.  After seven years, the Cover-Up leads all the way up to the Governor's Office, Attorney General's Office, an United States Senator and the state's Supreme Court and Superior Court.
 

soldier_s_courage3.jpg

 
The corrupt law firm Maynard & Truland was the defendant in the case,
and I was the Plaintiff in the attorney ethics complaint.
 
Instead of the State giving me "reasonable disability accommodations" for my war-service-related PTSD, the State allowed Maynard & Truland's arrogant lawyers to mock my disability in sworn,
State Supreme Court documents.
 
 
 
The State of New Jersey has denied me my Due Process for seven (7) years now.
 
This week (Feb 4th), I'll finally be presenting my state corruption charges to the FBI in Newark, New Jersey.
 
I'll keep everyone informed of the status at the below web link.
 
Thank you for passing the word about this Arrogant, New Jersey State Executive and Judicial Cover-Up.
 
Last year, the New Jersey Corruption webpages had over 100,000 visitors.  This year will be much more...
       
 
 
 

I have 22 years of working experience in Data Processing.  I have some of my New Jersey corruption evidence on the internet, because I hoped to grow support from across the United States.  Since I was not getting my civil rights from New Jersey's Supreme Court and Superior Court, the Governor's Office, NJ Attorney General's Office, Senate Robert Menendez and any law enforcement agency within the State of New Jersey, I had to get support from somewhere.

      The State of New Jersey has denied me my Due Process for seven (7) years now.

Now, I'm asking for Due Process from the Federal Government...

        Thanks Again!!

Who is going to believe a PTSD vet over the word and reputation of a

New Jersey Supreme Court Vice-Chairman of Attorney Ethics?

 

However, the evidence stands for itself!!!!

He might not go down as one of the top five presidents, but President George Bush, Jr will be remembered as one of the best presidents.

His actions saved the United States after 9-11, regardless how twisted the Left ties to make it.    Jack Cunningham
