Okay Snitch! We see you working on the weekends for your coins! Thank you! I loved this film I'm telling my age but if anyone can look it up on YouTube it was really good Patti LaBelle made a cameo in this film in the beginning Christy it was Denzel one guy who played on the soaps I forget his name but he was really good Adolph Caesar oh my goodness that's just a story and just seeing all those black people in a non blaxploitation film in the beginning of the 80s was very refreshing

I Loved the Film "A Soldier's Story," Which I Thought Really Explored The Trials & Tribulations That Black Men Faced (As It Related To Racism) And Serving The Country As Black Soldiers.

I Am Looking Forward To Seeing The Broadway Production Of "A Soldier's Play."
