Created By Lloyd Marcus

A SPECIAL THANKS TO MR. LLOYD MARCUS FOR THE USE OF THIS SONG 'WELCOME HOME'

"It took a lot of guts and courage to make this film. I wish my dad and uncles were alive to see it. They all served in NAM and came back very broken men. Our country just threw salt into their open wounds, but they never complained, only drank themselves to death. Thank you!!!"

- Herb Powell, Jefferson City, MO


Oh Stranger! Go tell America we lie here obedient to our word !

"As a Vietnam veteran I can tell you that you have captured the essence of every platoon, and squad and small unit that ever served over there. I led an infantry platoon of the 1st Air Cavalry Division and I had a little bit of every one of your characters in the guys in my unit. What a pleasure to see in your film was that you didn't cop out to the clichés of most of the movies out on the war with the standard atrocities and racial, drug, psycho themes. The kids in your movie are just like the tens of thousands of 19 year olds who served over there. And there were hundreds of small unit missions with heroics such as you portrayed in your film, many which have been long been forgotten because of security classifications, and quite frankly, time because people back home just didn't want to hear about it anymore. It's good to see the Vietnam soldiers and marines presented in a positive light for a change."

- Ronald Flynn - Platoon Leader - 1st Air Cav Division - Vietnam 66-67

"Forgotten Heroes" is a good, solid, old-fashioned entertainment in a Vietnam setting without the distorted stereotypes of drug addicts, murderers, and rapist. I particularly liked the ending with President Kennedy's Inaugural ceremony pledge to defend freedom anywhere, anytime, at any cost. It was not only very effective but helped to put our Southeast Asian involvement in context."

-Col Joseph N. Smith, Vietnen Veteran, USMC (ret)

"Jack, I received my copy of FORGOTTEN HEROES and enjoyed it immensely. Thank you again for bringing this wonderful film to the world. And to my attention. Its refreshing to see a movie of this caliber and integrity. I put you and the film right up there with John Wayne and the GREEN BERETS. I know you must have sweated blood all these years in your effort to get this film made. The cast was terrific and Mr Smith, as always, was excellant in his portrayel of the General. I only wish DeLuca could have made it home. Good job and thanks again."
 

-Bob Hubbard Vietnam Vet USAF -1966

"Thank you for finally portraying the Vietnam Vets as they truly survived in the jungles of Vietnam. We lost many men turned heroes. We survivors salute you for making people remember. I will surely tell other Nam vets in my association about your dvd. It was given to me as a gift and it will be played until I memorize the lines! Airborne, All The Way".

Anthony P. Albarello

"After seeing your film "Forgotten Heroes" I can say that your concept of American's helping Russians is far ahead of its time. Who would have known then the the United States and our former adversaries could be friends and work together for world peace. William Smith's performance of a Russian officer is outstanding and gives insight to some of the attitudes that prevailed in the former Soviet Union. The actors who portray the "Forgotten Heroes" show that young American warriors will give their all to carry out the mission in spite of overwhelming odds. We wish you success with your film, it is one that shows Americans serving in Vietnam in a positive light. Thank you for that."

- Vaughn Binzar - Editor/Art Director - Bravo Veterans Outlook

- U.S. Army Vietnam veteran, 1965-66

"Hi Jack, I just got thru watching your DVD on Forgotten Heroes! I wanted to thank you for the DVD Autograph signing. "Forgotten Hereos" portrays an extraordinary story and journey of U.S. Marines in combat while fighting the war in Vietnam. The film depicts excellent scenes of sacrifice, fear, and bravery of men and women in the U.S.Armed Forces serving in the war of Vietnam. An excellent movie a must see! Great job Jack! God Bless!"

-Master Sergeant Regulo Zapata Jr., U.S. Army Special Forces 74 - 03 (Retired)

As a Vietnam Veteran it is refreshing to finally see a movie that accurately depicts from the perspective of those who served, what really happened. The trials and tribulations, the men, and the situations that we were forced to deal with and endure....
 

- Bill English - Host of "Plain English" Blog Talk Radio Show

" I found "Forgotten Heroes" to be an accurate account of what I personally went through during my Tours of Duty in the 'Nam. Jack Marino went out of his way to get the facts straight. Good job Jack!:

-Mathew Bruce, SFC, US Army, 101st Airborne, 173rd Airborne Brigade,

Vietnam 66-67 and 68 wounded during Tet...

Hello Jack, FORGOTTEN HEROES is a fantastic film that I am so glad you have made. It's message is one that needs to be told and heard by this country, a message that has been drowned out by the warped and distorted messages of "Platoon", "Casualties of War", etc. This is a great film!

-Benjamin Sley, Major, U.S. Marine Corps, Judge Advocate,

-1st Marine Brigade; Yrs of Service: 1970-71 (PLC); 1975-1979

"I would highly recommend it to other Nam Vets for sure! Thanks Jack for showing us in a different light then we normally are. One thing you can surely do is say that the first Nam Vet to watch it will guarantee that all that I have read about 'FORGOTTEN HEROES" is true and highly recommeded by me. Mke Rozar, Combat Vietnam Veteran, 1970/1971 Americal Division. I think you did an awesome job on the movie Jack! Thenks again for sticking by your guns and putting out for the Vietnam Vets!"

- Mike Rozar, Combat Vietnam Veteran, 1970/1971 Americal Division
