I'm trying to identify a movie I saw part of. Unfortunately, this was several years ago. It involves about 6 or 10 Vietnam Vets, all running into misfortune of one kind of another, getting killed, put on trial, etc. I thought Brian Dennehy was in it & so thought that it might be "A Rumor of War" but after reading a review of that one, I'm not sure about that. In the movie I saw on TV, there was I think a court-martial happening, with the Dennehy? character getting offed by some kinda poison when his hand was 'accidentally' scratched. Also, there was some kind of psych manipulation against the guys, who had been ordered into some black op & then had their memories of same wiped out or replaced by the brainwashing. Anyone know the name of this movie?

You're not thinking of Jacob's Ladder, are you? Hmm..Distant Thunder, maybe?

The plot sounds about right, even though the cast doesn't ring a bell

Pretty sure that's not it.

Wasn't Jacob's Ladder about the military's experiment with giving the troops some kind of enhanced LSD that caused them to go on an extended "trip" and become some kind of "crazed" killers and then had flashbacks?
