Director Rodney Ray’s Some Called Them Baby Killers…We Call Them HEROES is a well-made documentary that consists of the un-narrated, close-up testimony of twenty Vietnam veterans and several of their family members. The veterans tell their war and post-war stories with black and white archival photos behind them and with soft music behind their words.
Nearly every one of veterans on camera saw combat; many continue to suffer emotionally from their war-time experiences. The group of veterans is diverse, in that there are former officers and enlisted men, some black and some white, from various services. On the non-diverse said, nearly every one of them is from what sounds like the deep South.
Nearly all are articulate and have stories to tell that are worth hearing.
