Hey come on you two. We've all been on here for a good while and I know both of you know better than to go this route. I know it can be very vexing. I've had my share of online issue though along time ago now as I try to keep a low profile these days. Plus I realised it doesn't matter what people online think of you as they truly don't know you and what type of person you are. Only people who really know you and you care about should you listen too if they have an issue.

So both you you stand back, breathe and let it go and then just stay out of each others way.

I have Combat and Rat Patrol on dvd (of course I do :) )

It's handy to note, you can watch Combat on YouTube.

I really liked Tour of Duty as well.

Realism? These were often one step away from fictional dramatizations I suppose. Always liked the actor that played the lead German officer in Rat Patrol. I know him as Victor of course.

Baa Baa Black sheep was fun.


Watched Rat Patrol and Black Sheep whenever they were on. And while McHale's Navy was more of a sitcom it did have some good WW2 scenes occasionally.

Yep, as a younger person I watched all of that too.

Had a boss way back then was a first marine talked about Guadalcanal and the battles he was in. Sure underappreciated him at that time, wish I could go back and give him a big hug!!!!

I knew someone who was a medic in France during WWII. He talked about the raw steak that he got at a restaurant and how his captain knew better than to send him to the front during the Battle of the Bulge - he could not stand the sight of blood!

A friends father was also a Marine at Guadalcanal but he never spoke of it. Many people won't even mention being in the military let alone what happened while there. Understandable.

I don't remember much but Dan did talk about, all I can remember is his radio took a bunch of bullets and he didn't! Unfortunately he has more than likely passed on.

Nowdays if I see an old person with a WWII veteran hat on I go up to them and thank them for their service. Did that before the pandemic at the Texas Roadhouse grill, man that old fellow was appreciative. Made my day.

The amazing thing is when you go up to these veterans and thank them for their service, they are so humble. Breaks my heart.

Just started watching the first season of Combat series. I don't think it was ever shown on UK TV. 32 episodes a season, that's alot.

Where are you watching that? I have been looking out for it for years...never could find it this side of the pond.

I have watched a few episodes recently on the (American) H&I (Heroes & Icons) Network. As a kid, I used to watch Combat! avidly in its first run in the early to mid 1960s. The series is not as good as I remember it, but Saving Private Ryan, Band of Brothers etc. sort of spoil the old productions, don't they?

Consider the budget and the time spent for each episode, Combat comes out ahead by far for what it is worth.

Not that Band of Brothers is not worth watching. I may even buy it on DVD.

Greetings wodin,
I grew up on Combat and watched all the episodes. They are available for free online
https://www.google.com/search?q=combat+tv+series&rlz=1CAKDZI_enUS936&source=lnms&tbm=vid&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwi67Yu7lZzuAhVYCs0KHeICAWsQ_AUoAXoECBIQAw&biw=1536&bih=746

Both my father and mother were ballet dancers in the NY ballet company (STOP LAUGHING!!): I had so many after school fights since I was always teased in gym class about wearing ballet slipper or tights or a tutu. I wish my parents named me Sue, like the Johnny Cash song, since it would have been easier to deal with!
Here is the episode where a an army soldier(former ballet dancer) takes out a German machine gun:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rP2uoZwpA0M Combat! S1E02 Rear Echelon Commandos (39.00 min he uses ballet footwork to walk across a rooftop peak to use grenade)

I also watched the Rat Patrol which is also free online

Well, then this site and its sights may arm your heart:

https://thetutuproject.com/gallery/

I have also read where male professional athletes will take ballet to improve their balance and thus their performance. Besides, would you rather be with a lot of hot, sweaty guys or a bunch of nice, young, glistening, athletic, females breathing heavily?

Not that Band of Brothers is not worth watching. I may even buy it on DVD.

I own and watch Band of Brothers biannually, alternating one year to the next with The Pacific, which I also own and, of the two, is more my favorite.

Can't wait for Hanks & co. to finish and release The Mighty Eighth.
