Thank You Brother
Man those chopper pilots have to have some big ones
What is the name of the song that they sing before the final battle? Starts out Lay me down...
They edited out some good parts. Still a great movie!
Does anyone see any parallels between this movie and Irag? Great leadership, volunteers, and discipline equals a dominating force.
...And now the very morning after his Election Victory...
...we have the 1st Vietnamese-American ever elected to a State Legislature in U.S. History,
...paying his respects to those Hero American & South Vietnamese Soldiers who fought side by side for Freedom in Vietnam long ago:

RANDALL's 'MANSIONS' = RONNIE's D.C. Funeral Hymn..

...For comments about his Hero Father Helicopter Commanding Pilot BRUCE CRANDALL, played by Gregg Kinnear in "WE WERE SOLDIERS," and the family's battle to have "Snake" awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his great heroism at the IA DRANG...
...see Poster 'mdcrandall' Threads & Postings on our "WE WERE SOLDIERS" Forum:
Actually TNT's editing out the rougher language & violence for this TV Version of "WE WERE SOLDIERS" makes it even more parallel to:
MEL's -PASSION- was sparked by -WE WERE SOLDIERS-
Tremendous movie. Gibson at his best. The music - "Mansions of the Lord" was featured at Reagan's funeral. A local chorus performed it here the other day and the audience was wiping away tears.
This movie is awe inspiring. THANK YOU SOLDIERS!
Randall Wallace & Nick Glennie-Smith's inspiring hymn...
..'MANSIONS OF THE LORD'..
...has now entered our History Books forever.
...It also graced the Ronald Reagan's just concluding 'Mourning in America' Exhibit honoring the week that was the passing of Ronald Reagan.
This is a terrific production. Gibson, and hollyweird at their finest. Matched only by "Glory".
I will watch for the 15th time or so.
Great movie and the deleted scenes on the DVD are terrific.
