One of the best military movies of all time. I too think it has aged quite well in comparison to others (for some reason I have to think of Top Gun now...yuck).

Since the thrombosis is directly attributable to the enlaged aortal bulb (apparently, the blood swirling around in there can - and did, obviously - form clots which then go on to clog smaller blood vessels), the aortal bulb is going to be exchanged for a piece of high-tech tubing at the beginning of...

1. Bernie Sanders might be a bawbag, but a Marxist? Ha...
