MEDAL OF HONOR RAG

Genre: Drama
by Tom Cole

Based on a true story, MEDAL OF HONOR RAG details the relationship between a psychiatrist and one of his patients, a troubled Vietnam veteran. Dale "DJ" Jackson has been awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his bravery in Vietnam. Yet upon returning to the States, his life is soon forced into a downward spiral of depravity and depression. He eventually winds up at Valley Forge Hospital where he plows his way through several incompetent psychiatrists until finally meeting his match with a New York City-based doctor who, in one difficult session, forces him to face his demons. In the course of this first session, DJ's story, both of Vietnam and his homecoming, unfolds, and the audience is allowed to witness the ramifications of a country that throws its young into a chaotic whirlpool and leaves them to fend for themselves upon returning home.
