Part Timers - The Short-Timers - Netflix

The Short-Timers is a 1979 semi-autobiographical novel by U.S. Marine Corps veteran Gustav Hasford, about his experience in the Vietnam War. It was later adapted into the film Full Metal Jacket (1987) by Hasford, Michael Herr, and Stanley Kubrick. Hasford's novel The Phantom Blooper: A Novel of Vietnam (1990) is a sequel to The Short-Timers. The Short-Timers was supposed to be the first of a “Vietnam Trilogy”, but Hasford died soon after completing its sequel and before writing the third installment.
