"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

"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".

"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."

"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!"

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....

" 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

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!

"I would highly recommend it to other Nam
Vets for sure! Thanks Jack for showing us in a different light then we normally are.

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
