About this show

Soldiers & Other Living Things addresses the issue of homosexuality and the military during the pre-"Don't Ask, Don't Tell" era of the Vietnam War. Facing conflicts on the battlefield as well as at home, it's the story of two soldiers struggling to find self-acceptance in a world just beginning to tolerate same-sex orientation. One injured during the evacuation of Saigon, and the other suffering from post-traumatic stress, they eventually find themselves in a veteran's hospital where, through a series of encounters, they find the courage to confront the intensity of the feelings they share for each other.
