Marines and their supporters refuted criticism of the Feb. 21 program that PBS Ombudsman Michael Getler recently described as a “very well done testimonial and recruiting film masquerading as a documentary.” Getler’s critique was lost on one viewer who wrote: “Documentary or recruiting — whatever you want to call it, it was a pretty good show. I want to say ‘thank you’ in advance for the new ones who might sign with the Marine Corps just because they saw this show.”
