The A Team was one of the most beloved series of the 1980s (and a fairly average 2010 movie). It made a star of Mr. T and reminded the world of George Peppard, creating an unlikely behind the scenes rivalry. However the question has always been what kind of army unit would ever have this group and rank of people …including a pilot?
NEON rolls it’s sleeves up and does it’s job, stripping away the 80s glitter to reveal the real history. The discussion turns from 80s frivolity to the Vietnam War, and then onto America’s complex relationship with the men who served there.
