I have been watching this DVD on e-bay for some time but for some strange reason it is not available in the US nor can it be shipped to the US. I am wondering if anyone has seen this version of the events and adventures of the 109 and is it just a bunch of junk or does it pose some interesting questions and observations?

Are you thinking that there is a conspiracy to keep it out of the US? Amazon doesn't have a problem with US shipping; http://www.amazon.com/History-JFK-PT-109/dp/B001CUB164

However, recently revealed testimony from crew members and naval officers investigating the incident tells a different story. Did the Kennedy family bury the true facts in an effort to protect the image of JFK?

Roy;
Here it is:
http://shop.history.com/jfk-pt-109-a-hero-in-question-dvd/detail.php?p=68458

As you can see it states in the write up that Paul Fay was Commander of PT 167, which he wasn't, Ted Berlin was, Fay was Exec, for awhile. But more importantly, PT 167 wasn't even on this mission, so he can only relate what he was told later.
take care,
TED

For the cheap money, it might be worth it just to see what new evidence they have obtained to get it right. I doubt anything has surfaced, and trust, this could be a bunch of hear say from people who were not even there. It had been suggested to me that Kennedy's crew would have never said anything to the contrary because many of them got jobs from Kennedy, and worked on his Campaign as well. I can only say what was related to me by the two 109 crewmen that I interviewed and became friends with. Trust me they never uttered anything negative about their Skipper. Should be interesting what is on this tape............

As I remember, it's pretty much a hatchet job on JFK...
