A Bad Deal - My Vietnam War Story

A Bad Deal - My Vietnam War Story

In 1966, Iowa native Jim Hamlyn was drafted into the U.S. Army where he served a year-long tour of duty during the heart of the Vietnam War. Using an 8mm camera, Hamlyn-who would receive the Bronze Star for valor in combat-documented his war experiences. Now, Hamlyn's war footage is being seen on television for the first time. "Bad Deal - My Vietnam War Story" highlights this never-before-seen footage, along with interviews with Hamlyn, to offer a revealing glimpse into the story of one American war veteran transformed by combat, as seen through the lens of his film camera. Featuring a haunting, original score by Joe Maddock, "A Bad Deal " takes you back in time to relive one of America's most divisive conflicts.
