Description by OLDIES.com:

In the carnage and cruelty of Vietnam, Navy surgeon Don Jardian learned he had to move fast to deal with black marketeers who control vital supplies - and even faster to stitch together a shrapnel-riddled combatant. But he couldn't foresee the emotional crossfire he and nurse Deborah Solomon experience as their romance - and the war's dangers - heighten.

Ken Wahl (Wiseguy) and Cheryl Ladd (Charlie's Angels) star in director Sidney J. Furie's vivid and moving Purple Hearts, a Vietnam War drama of love and courage showcasing fine performances and authentic Philippines-filmed recreations of the hell-on-earth that was Vietnam. In love and war, their story makes for an exciting powerful film about a conflict in which there were no easy answers.

Product Description:

A Navy surgeon and a nurse fall in love while serving in Vietnam during the war. Their affection for one another provides a striking contrast to the violence of warfare.

Plot Synopsis:

Ace surgeon Don Jardian and nurse Deborah Solomon conduct a star-crossed romance while stationed at different bases during the Vietnam War.
