    This is an interview for everyone to watch. Just imagine being young able-bodied everything is going for you. And next thing you know you sign up for a war and boom you get shot after two tours in the Vietnam war. That is what happened to Mr. Kovic.

    The interview really puts life into perspective. Kovic Talk about being young and strong and then just a few years later not being able to use the bathroom, not being able to have sex not being able to move either one of his legs for the rest of his life. Unless somehow God willing science and medicine can once and for all solved spinal cord injuries. It took a lot of courage for Kovic sign up willingly as a volunteer for the Vietnam war. And it took Kovic an equal or perhaps even more courage to rally against such a war. Agree with the man or not Kovic has a message as an antiwar activist. That is to tell America to end it’s involvement in the Vietnam war so no more of his own fellow troops could die brutally or get maimed in the war.


    The interview nor the film turn to be against America or his involvement even in the Vietnam war. Because the communist committed their bad actions as well. but Mr. Kovic is undoubtably a hero for all the world to look up to

      Thank you Mr. Stonewall Jack for the Thread. This is one of my favorite movie and will watch it again and again with the same emotional reaction. Praise Mr. Kovic for his courage and strength and intelligence.

        Almost three Million Men, including me with two tours and the Purple Heart, served in Vietnam, and one will get about Three Million stories on their take of the Vietnam War, but only less than ten have used it to make Money with it, that's all I am saying about this thread.

            Many veterans or their family have made money off of the war stories from World War I to the modern wars.... I Suppose that the part of capitalism. Think of the film American sniper or the film about the American soldier in Afghanistan “Lone Survivor “
