Marathon on the History channel today. Cold and nasty outside so I kept coming in to check in and then I couldn't leave. Still one of the best I have ever seen.

Interesting at the same time the National Guard was banished to the parking garages in DC. No longer needed and it "didn't look good", wake up America. There is a total lack of respect for anyone who wears a uniform in this country. And I think we'll be seeing less and less making that career choice.

My uncle Mario "Krauthead" with stuff they took from Berchtesgaden - 1945 as a member of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division.  RIP Uncle 'Hank'.

No, not at all.

Just by a segment of our society.

While we're on the subject, if you're looking for a one season, can do it all in one day kind of thing, and you've gone through the aforementioned Band of Brothers, The Pacific and Generation Kill.............

 

Chernobyl and John Adams are absolutely must watch, with an honorable mention The Queen's Gambit.

Queens Gambit shouldn't be mentioned in the same breath as those others.  Although I didn't see Generation Kill.

Threw that in for something a little different, being that many people have seen all 5 of the other 5 mentioned.

Band of Brothers is great.  The Pacific imo was a letdown.

 

A mini series on The Mighty Eighth was supposed to come out a few years ago.  Too bad it never happened.
