@LarrySr I agree. We Were Soldiers is a great movie. I just ordered a book called “The Greatest Beer Run Ever”. It is being made into a movie in the next year. It’s about guys at a bar in NYC I believe. They were discussing how they wish some of the guys were there to drink with but they were all in Vietnam. One guy at the bar decided to smuggle himself into Vietnam and go find all the “bar” guys and have a beer with them. Seems like it will be a good read and I’m seeing Apple is producing the movie.

I forgot about:

A newer one on Netflix is Outpost

I hope we can continue this list, it’s given me ideas of movies to watch again and if you’ve never seen any, maybe it will be a “reference” of movies to check out.

I was a kid living in Oahu Hawaii at Wheeler AFB and was an extra in the original. Pretty cool experience.
