Lt Dan :“Tuck that lip in, you’ll get it caught on a tripwire.” “You guys twins?” “Socks. Cushion sole. OD green.”
The video clip shows a scene in the late 1960s where Lieutenant Dan Taylor, Forrest Gump and “Bubba” were serving with the 9th Infantry Division in the Mekong Delta region during the Vietnam war.
The movie “Forest Gump” offers compelling portraits of Americans in the decades from the 1950s-1980s, particularly focusing on the life of Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks), a slow-witted but kind-hearted man from Alabama who witnesses and unwittingly influences several defining historical events in the 20th century United States. Carried by twists of fate, Forest lives through an extraordinary life as an athlete, entrepreneur, and war hero. He meets icons like Elvis, JFK, and John Lennon, but through it all, Forest remains preoccupied with his angst-ridden, childhood sweetheart Jenny.
