Oh, and thanks for posting that Sachsenhausen video. I partied up there at the Irish Pub and the 4th floor a number of times. Once a buddy of mine and I got so drunk that we passed out on the train and ended up in Ingolstadt by mistake. Good times.

I was there, 87-89 on fiori 557th mt co. Hung out at Logos, and played in a metal band called Rellik, that played a little club on graves (i think) and the 89 German-American Volksfest.

I was in a support unit (don't hate me) and spent most of the war in the rear. It was mostly boring, periodically terrifying, and "Jarhead" seemed to put that across well. Of course, no film ever made will capture the experience of war, and if one did, why the hell would anyone go see it?
