Title: Sir! No Sir! - The Suppressed Story of the GI Movement to End the War in Vietnam

Author: HISTORY MILITARY VIETNAM DVD SIR / NR

KDL Description:

“Since 100% of my knowledge of Vietnam vets’ feelings about the war comes from that one scene in Rambo where Sylvester Stallone is staggering around wailing about being called a baby killer, I found this documentary to be both super informative and absolutely fascinating.”—Monica at KDL’s Wyoming branch

Amazon Description:

Easily the most timely and resonant film about the soldiers on the front lines of antiwar resistance, the award-winning breakout theatrical hit SIR! NO SIR! Tells an almost entirely forgotten story of the military men and women who helped force the U.S. government to end the Vietnam War. Contrary to the popular image of long-haired hippies spitting on returning soldiers, SIR! NO SIR! vividly demonstrates that GIs were the heart and soul of the anti-war movement. Poignantly narrated by a diverse cast of veteran GI resisters who recall the ferocious days of peace marches and stiff jail sentences, SIR! NO SIR! pulls no punches in its raw depiction of the power of people, especially those in uniform. Directed by David Zeiger, SIR! NO SIR! is “powerful stuff, offering us not only a new look at the past, but to the unavoidably relevant insights into the present” (New York Daily News).
