Training Thoughts on the Production
In 1972 Vietnam, Marines are sent in to rescue some POW officers. The cold landing zone is hot and after a short fight, only 4 are left alive. The platoon they are to meet the next day is wipe out except for one nut-case. They conclude that they are expendable decoys. Between the walking, talking, arguing and assaulting between the four, there are flashbacks to contrite life before the Marines.
