Into Harm's Way

About This Episode


Feature documentary Into Harm’s Way chronicles the honest and often painful look at the shadow war casts long after the guns have fallen silent, and at how the Vietnam War in particular, continues to occupy an unsettled place in the American psyche.

The West Point Class of 1967 arrived at the United States Military Academy during the early 1960s when it appeared that America was destined for a century of unrivaled success. Four years later, when members of that class graduated and were commissioned as officers in the United States Army, the country was in the middle of a strange and unpopular war in Southeast Asia. The Class of 1967 ended up paying a high price during the Vietnam War, yet most stayed strong, bonding as brothers and as soldiers in a way that has endured through to the present.
