To h#ll with this guy. Especially, with a war going on. The book was nonsense and the movie was worse, sold out the Corps, he probably wasn't even in.

I think that Anthony Swofford should stop and think about what he did to Troy's family members. Troy had a name and place in many people's hearts.
Mr.Swofford should have spoken to Troy's family before he twisted some of the details of Troy's past. I want people to know that Troy did not committ suicide, he died in a car accident. And, family members mourned him all over again with the release of this movie.
In saying this, I just hope that when people make movies about their past, the right thing to do is tell the truth. And, if you don't know for sure what that is-then you better be asking the people that really know!

If Anthony Swofford is to do another movie, WOULD HIGHLY SUGGEST NOT DOING IT ON SOMETHING HE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT. JARHEAD, was nothing more than a made up dream. If Anthony was a Marine, I would like to know with what unit? He should not ever refer himself as being a Marine ever again due to this unjust portrayal he provided. Being a Marine is a priviledge and an honor, many have failed trying to achieve this. He failed his fellow Marines by allowing this film to be produced with so many discrepancies.
