    FYI, Full Metal Jacket, IMO the best Vietnam War movie ever, is now available for streaming on Netflix.

    Agreed, first time I watched with my wife, her comment was, 'They don't treat you that bad!' I had been in USAF basic & could agree with her if my brother-in-law hadn't been a Marine DI for years. Great Movie, I had to laugh at the dialog until I realized that was the way we talked in the 60's. The writers nailed it perfectly.
