Into Harm's Way Previous Broadcasts

KQED World: Sat, May 25, 2013 -- 6:00 AM

The 846 cadets in the West Point Class of 1967 arrived at the United States Military Academy in upstate New York in the early 1960s, during a time of peace and with a commitment to making the military their career. Four years later, the 583 graduates of that class - now commissioned officers in the United States Army - would find themselves embroiled in a strange and unpopular conflict taking place in Southeast Asia. The Class of 1967 would pay a high price in the Vietnam War; 30 of its young men would die in combat while countless others would sustain injuries, both physical and psychological, destined to haunt them for years to come. INTO HARM'S WAY takes an honest and unflinching look at the shadow the Vietnam War continues to cast on this class of West Pointers, while also exploring its unsettled place in the American psyche. Compelling interviews, archival photographs and footage, animated sequences and contemporary clips chronicle the men's experiences - from their challenging first year as plebes to the fierce hand-to-hand jungle combat to their post-Vietnam lives. A collection of West Pointers poignantly share, sometimes with great emotion, their first-hand stories about the carnage of war, the war's impact on their lives and beliefs, and their enduring bonds of brotherhood.
