Does this merit a disambiguation page with the show, the real China Beach in Vietnam, and Golden Gate NRA as the targets? Rlquall 02:28, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Circular link[edit]

"For the historical Vietnamese beach of the same name, see China Beach." Leads to a list of worldwide beaches, and the China Beach link in that list leads back here to the TV show. *IS* there an article on the actual China Beach in Vietnam? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 13:52, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

"We gotta get" a ref...[edit]

Did the show really use the 1980's version of this song, with Katrina and the Waves?! Did it not use the original by The Animals, which was very popular during the War? Maury Markowitz (talk) 17:53, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

My soundtrack credits read: "Katrina and the Waves with Eric Burdon" Meters (talk) 03:12, 16 July 2012 (UTC)
If you check the source for the DVD collection, it should be "Eric Burdon with Katrina and the Waves". This is how it should be listed as the company's legal team had spent a year clearing the rights to hundreds of copyrights for the songs. — Wyliepedia 09:56, 2 March 2013 (UTC)

The real China Beach in Vietnam[edit]

There isn't a real beach called China Beach in Vietnam. It was just a nickname by the geographically challenged American soldiers. Pass it on. (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 01:38, 4 July 2012 (UTC)

Only enemy combatants called it CHina Beach because they were high school dropouts who didn't finish their geography class. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:15, 16 July 2012 (UTC)

Original novel and author[edit]

I'm surprised there isn't a page dedicated either to the original novel Home Before Morning (1983) or its author, former U.S. Army Nurse Lynda Van Devanter. Do we know anything else about her? Valetude (talk) 21:05, 17 February 2016 (UTC)
