“Volpe & Fine settimana degli amici” co-host Pete Hegseth previewed his latest Fox Nation documentary, “Heroes of Hamburger Hill,” come la “perfect film” to watch on Veterans Day.
The film follows Vietnam War veterans, forgotten U.S. airborne troops who were not recognized for their heroism until 50 anni dopo, when they were finally presented with the respect and accreditation they deserve.
“They never told anybody in the police department where they served and they never got the medals, the Purple Hearts and the Bronze Stars, that they were given until a year ago, when they were awarded to them,” Hegseth told co-host Brian Kilmeade on “Volpe & Amici.”
Hegseth explained the Battle of Hamburger Hill ‒ named as such by reporters because troops described it as fighting in a meat grinder ‒ was one of the most gruesome combats in the war. It lasted 10 days and had a staggering number of casualties.
“We take you to the battlefield and then they go back, one year ago, to that hill, collina 937, in Vietnam to see it,” Hegseth said.
Vietnam veteran James Baylor recounts getting off the plane at the age of 25 and realizing he probably wasn’t going to make it out alive.
L'anno scorso, on the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Hamburger Hill, he and other veterans and soldiers revisited the same location, retracing their steps.
