ABOUT THE FILM
In 1967 near the Hamlet of My An, in Dai Loc, Quang Nam, Vietnam stood hill 65. Also known as LZ Rawhide, it was a long, narrow ridge of rock which stood 65 ft above sea level, located west of Danang and the ocean. A mile or so to the north, a huge mountain dubbed “Charlie Ridge” by the Marines occupying the LZ, loomed over it. The river Vu Gia lies just across the road on the south side of the site, and across from that would lie the vast stretch of valley known to the Marines as “Arizona Territory”, an area under intense conflict by the local population against the Marines’ presence in the Quang Nam. This is the Marines First Platoon India Company’s story of valor and sacrifice. – Of the men who will Always be Faithful, Always be Marines.
