Front Row Flashbacks is looking at the 1986 Best Picture winner Platoon for its’ 35th Anniversary for our Memorial Day Special. The first Vietnam War film made by Vietnam veterans takes an unflinching look at the struggles and confusion involved in the conflict, and the human toll that took. This movie gives great insight into the daily struggle our service members dealt with, while voicing a strong anti-war message.  

FEATURING: Jay Hoffman, Ryan Lootens, & Erin McCabe
