I went out and bought the DVD set because I hear you guys talking about it.
Just watched the first "episode".

Damn good.

Yeah, my father-in-law and I watched the whole box set 1st disk through the end in one sitting. You feel like you knew the guys after you've finished with it. Hard not to. I'd like to have known Winters in real life. I think anyway ...

Probably one of the best series ever produced, bar none.

I'm pretty proud of my kid (13 YO). He wanted the DVDs for his birthday in Sep and after waching them about 261 times now, wanted the book for Christmas. Needless to say...

ETA: Hey LARRYG, I never noticed the "USN 1969-1973" before. Cheers USN 1965-1974.

The vet inteviews on the last disk are incredible, especially after watching the series.

It looks kind of wierd on THC.

Here's a shot of Me and Buck Compton this Christmas.



Great man before, during, and after the war. He gave a very good talk. The highlight of my Holiday season.

If anyone wants to see the memorial and go up Curahee let me know. I am about 10min away. The old base has been removed, although there are road signs in place to show where it used to be. BTW you can drive to the top you don't have to go up the way they did. The site used in the series looks nothing like Curahee although they scouted the area and decided it had changed too much since the war.

And for post# 737

Damn.

I guess it's back to the Twilight Zone until tomorrow.

I've got a paperback version of the S. Ambrose book, signed by all eleven surviving members of Easy Co.

One of my prized possessions.

Kick ass

I also met a few Members of Easy Company.

Crossroads.

And surprisingly the last one where they are at the lake and all. For some reason I find this one a bit sad, guess it's sort of like the old high school / college gang knowing it's all over during the last week of school. There's a lot of happiness and sadness, the desire to get home and the knowledge that you may never see the people you just went through very difficult times with ever again.
