Betty & Ken Rodgers are two of my favorite people… their first documentary was an incredible piece of work, centered on Ken’s unit in the Vietnam — Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 26th Marines. The documentary told the amazing story of young American Marines fighting at a place called Khe Sanh and how those violent, bloody events shook lives forever. If you haven’t seen BRAVO! Common Men Uncommon Valor — do yourself a favor and watch it.
For Ken & Betty, Bravo! led them to a second documentary… inspired on the women they met filming the first documentary… women who married “Romeo,” only to see Romeo go off and fight in a war and then return a different version of Romeo — these women then became lifelong caregivers — I Married the War is their story. This wonderful, deep, touching work a gripping look at the reality of war as it returns to the United States… into the homes, families and intimate relationships of those who participate in war. I love this documentary.
