#17 VIETNAM RAG                                                           PROD.B89417

When Goldman and Anderson are ordered to take out a platoon of newbies on a "reconnaissance-in-force", they worry about the effect it’ll have on the the veterans, especially now that they’re used to success on their SOG operations. Complicating matters is a reporter with an anti-war leanings, who will record the mission on film. A wearying, same-old-shit, tension filled sweep ( in which the unit is decimated by boobytraps and ambushes) culminates in the burning of a VC-sympathetic village—preserved for prosperity by the journalist’s camera.
