People with hearing impairment will find the documentary quite disappointing and people with no hearing will find it useless. The interviewed veterans were quite long in years when the interviews were conducted so quite naturally many did not articulate clearly and some spoke with dialect accents which some viewers even with normal hearing will find difficult to understand. Given that this is a rather recent production I find the lack of CC to be quite surprising. I wish I could be able to give this documentary five stars, however as it exists now I can only give it three. I can only hope that someday it is re-edited and released with closed captioning.
