BRAVO! COMMON MEN, UNCOMMON VALOR is a feature documentary produced and directed by Idaho filmmakers Ken and Betty Rodgers. This highly acclaimed film explores the reality of the historic 77-day siege of Khe Sanh, Viet Nam, in the early months of 1968. 14 Marines and a Corpsman, today, recount their personal experience, including returning to their homeland, which did not want to hear their story.
While a stunning history lesson, BRAVO! is also a contemporary story, as a new generation of soldiers comes home from the Mideast. The reality of these stories is as compelling as any fictionalized account of warfare, and offers an urgent message of righting the wrongs of previous responses to the warrior’s return. This is a film for veterans, family members and for human service and medical providers who serve veterans; it is for historians, sociologists, students, and for those who simply want to better understand the human cost of war.
The film was edited by Vietnam veteran John Nutt, a BAFTA award-winning veteran of the film industry. The final remix was done at Skywalker Sound in Marin County.
