"There are 58,183 names on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The lives they touched tell their stories. This is the story of 3 brave men who never made it home, told in three short, unique segments. THE PENCIL HOLDER: Edward James Olmos plays a tough Colonel struggling to raise his young son on an American military base surrounded by the brutality of battle. THE BADGE: Ruby Dee - in a heart wrenching role - reveals the pain a grandmother feels as she sends her beloved grandson overseas. THE PLAYER: Starring Frank Whaley & Michael DeLorenzo - A selfless squad leader must confront a parasitic hustler who's getting rich off the spoils of war."

"This is a GREAT movie,even though it has a underlying anti-war tone.
The three segments depic the war,for the most part,as it was. The last segment hit home for me. We had a guy we called Jammer,man he could play,in our unit. Jammer was KIA thirty days before rotation out.
If you belive in our troops this movie will hit home."
