Default Any MILITARY CHANNEL fans, or fanatics out there?

Any MILITARY CHANNEL fans, or fanatics out there?

One of my favorite channels, especially when there isn't crap on TV. Plus it's on 24/7, does all the top 10 lists the whole bit.

I used to watch it, but everything on there is about the Airforce and Navy. Where's the love for the Army and Marines?

I agree, if there's nothing else on, the Military Channel always has something half decent on. Same with the Military History Channel. I don't like that it's not in HD, though.

Just got done watching D-Day and the liberation of Europe.

ARMY baby.

My dad was WWII and Korea NAVY, one uncle Air Corps WWII and another uncle was in a tank in Europe.

You wouldn't believe the Nazi stuff he got, looked like "Kelly's Heros". They'd smash their tanks into buildings and loot it.

When I was young I got to hold Lugars, daggers, he gave us a helmet.

BUT he had tons of stuff including those wall size red Nazi flags....finally donated some to museums before he died not long ago.

Well, the Air Force, Navy, and Coast Guard are fairly ignored in movies (except in movies that have to do with fighter pilots and stuff like that) so at least they are getting attention somewhere.

Yeah it can be quite boring at sea, in reality for months on end sometimes (less so in the high tech era, you can web cam home).

I still like to see the CG take out those narco drug super boats!

Most nights I can find something on....especially with a 19" TV on my huge rolltop desk next to my computer.

I faintly remember some show on the History Channel where they filmed some Coast Guardsmen shooting out the engine on a drug dealer's boat with a fifty cal as they flew in a helicopter.

I'm a big WWII history fan but also like when they cover Korea "The Forgotten War" (part 1 of 2 on now) or Viet Nam which was my generation.

I like watching WWII in Color when it's on.
