Looks like it may be a good series. I seldom watch TV. In fact, don't even have cable but my son loaned me his set of Band OF Brothers DVDs. I really got into those.
My Dad, now 87 yrs old, was a Marine private on Saipan.
My son served 4 yrs with the modern 101st not all that long ago. It's all Air Assault with helicopters now.

My Dad was at Okinawa and Pelileiu.

My Mom's cousin was at Iwo Jima and his Brother was Airborne and jumped on June 05. My Dad's Brother was killed at The Battle of The Bulge and my Wife's Grandfather was a POW of the Japs.

I will be watching this one and remembering family members that have passed. I try every day to fill the shoes they left, they are very big shoes and I don't come close to filling them.

Biker, the fact that you honor their service to this country and their sacrifice to your family, and never forget any of it, goes a long way toward lacing up those boots, brother. God bless them all.
