The excellent Vietnam War documentary, Bravo! Common Men, Uncommon Valor , will be shown tonight, Thursday, February 13, in filmmaker Ken Rodgers’s home town of Casa Grande, Arizona, at the historic Paramount Theatre at 7:00 PM.
Proceeds from the screening of Bravo! will help fund the Pinal County Veterans Memorial.
Produced and directed by Rogers, a U.S. Marine Corps Khe Sanh veteran, and his wife Betty Rodgers, the doc—which we screened at VVA’s 2012 Leadership Conference in Texas—looks at the siege through the eyes of fifteen men who served at Khe Sanh with Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 26th Marines and survived to tell their tales.
“This is a grunt film that looks at history from over the lip of the trench, ” Steven Hunter wrote in his review in The VVA Veteran. “It’s a privilege and an honor to come across a work as disciplined and rigorous as Ken and Betty Rodgers’s Bravo!”
