Mature female free thinking adult women. I apologize for using the word 'whore' which is insensitive to women who give free sex from the goodness of their hearts.

But the scenes of boot camp at MCRD San Diego were dead on, as that was where I went trough boot camp the summer of 1968. Although the brutality & toughness of the DI's was played down quite a bit.
Full Metal Jacket was shot in England. The action scenes supposedly in Hue, were actually set in an abandoned gas works near London.
Thanks from Twisted Sister

Flashback, I could not see Hue but the gun fire control radar could by bouncing the radar beam off the steeple of a catholic church and the priest of the church was the spotter. This was 1972 during the Easter/Spring Offensive and we were fighting the NVA, correctly PAVN. The enemy got wise and blew down the church with the priest in it.
