DD>This gripping documentary from VPRO television by Roel van Broekhoven tells the story of three veterans of the war in Iraq. Sergeant John Quincy Adams, 37, Corporal Tyson Johnson, 22, and Specialist Sam Ross, 21, talk candidly about their war experiences. They tell how they got wounded and how their lives have changed. "Purple Hearts" truly succeeds in portraying the downside of heroism in a dignified way. It is a story often left untold - especially in the United States - because it is not a story of hope, but one of loss. "Purple Hearts" makes you ask yourself: "When is war worth the sacrifice?"
