How many of you remember watching China Beach on TV?
This is a show that made us laugh,cry and understand history in a tangible way. The Vietnam war became personal and real through the episodes we watched each week.
Many movies and TV shows have been made about the soldiers who served by fighting the enemy. China Beach was different. It’s based on true stories of those who served in support roles at a hospital and USO center. Even though these people were not fighting the war, their contributions were vital.
China Beach helps us remember that war is not just statistics in a history book or newspaper. There are human consequences for these military actions.
