20th Century Battlefields

Post by 5thFSEMSG » Wed Dec 05, 2007 2:21 pm

Did anyone catch the episode about the Gulf War that was on at 1900 hours last night on the Military Channel? I did, and it was informative to say the least. The films from that episode brought back many, many memories.

Didn't see that one, but I did catch Special Forces Manhunt on the Military channel. It features Chris Ryan of Bravo Two Zero fame.

I saw the one where he had to rescue the downed pilot in Botswana. Good show, makes me homesick for romping around in the woods in full gear playing GI Joe.

I don't have the military channel, I wish that I did because I would have liked to see that program.

Here y'all go:

I think you can purchase a DVD of the specific episode or maybe even watch it online. I recorded it on my DVR so I can watch again.

Drop cable and whatever second rate satellite service and take up with Dircetv. That's the only way I know to get the military channel, and a bunch of other channels the other guys won't carry.
