The clip talking to parents about serving country from Born on the Fourth of July (1989) with Josh Evans, Tom Cruise
Mickey has two strikes
and the chance to put the Yankees
ahead in this game.
The pitcher gets his sign,
takes his stretch, checks the runners.
Here's the pitch.
Mickey swings, and he connects!
There's a long drive deep to center field!
It is going, going!
It is gone into the bleachers,
455 feet away
for Mickey's 491st home run!
How about that?
The crowd is on its feet,
giving Mickey a standing ovation.
? And rattle your walls ?
? For the times, they are a-changin' ?
? Come, senators and congressmen ?
? Please heed the call ?
? Don't stand in the doorway ?
? Don't lock up the hall ?
? For the times, they are a-changin' ? ?
There's absolutely no question.
The First Cavalry Division
is the latest concept in mobile warfare.
One division is worth
2 1/2 Russian and 6 Chinese divisions.
How well will the individual soldier
stand up here in Vietnam?
What do you think, Dad, about that?
I don't know.
that's a long way to go to fight a war.
They fought the French and the Japanese
for 30 years.
Can they be weeded out?
Anything that lives in a cave
can be weeded out.
I just hope they send you to Europe or Korea or...
Every Marine has a tour of duty there.
It's not like the Army.
What's wrong with you?
You served. Uncle Bob served.
I know, Ronnie. I know.
Remember what President Kennedy said?
There won't be an America anymore
unless people are willing to sacrifice.
I love my country.
And you're right, Ronnie.
You're doing the right thing.
Communism has to be stopped.
It's God's will you go.
