The clip talking to parents about serving country Part 2 from Born on the Fourth of July (1989) with Caroline Kava, Tom Cruise
We're proud of you.
Be careful, that's all.
Up there in Hanoi,
they don't allow magazines, newspapers, and televisions
to cast doubts on the military system.
Don't you know what being a Marine means to me, Dad?
Ever since I was a kid,
I've wanted to serve my country,
And I want to go.
I want to go to Vietnam,
and I'll die there if I have to.
The attitude of people on the home front
is very important in this war.
Not a nice night for the prom.
Can the South Vietnamese government
stand up to the North?
We wouldn't be here
if we didn't think so.
Sometimes, God, I'm so confused.
Sometimes I think I'd just...
Iike to stay here in Massapequa
and never leave...
but I got to go.
Just help me, Jesus.
Help me to make the right decision.
Please, dear God.
