The far-left, socialistic, gun hating, nanny state, pinko, anti-hunting, funny looking, whacko, anti-firearms, we-know-better-than-you-do-about-what-you-need, (did I say they don't like guns?) crowd is why we can't see cartoons like that on Saturday morning TV anymore.

Great gif by the way.


Bugs Bunny is still on TV (Boomarang and Cartoon Network). There is no ban. There is more sex and violence on TV today than ever.

Might be, but you can't watch unless you have Cartoon Network or Boomerang. They aren't on regular, non-cable, channels.

Sgt. Rock of Easy Company. One of the comics I had to have in the mid 60's.
The Haunted Tank, Sgt. Fury and his fighting Commandos, I can't remember the names of the ones with the one legged PT boat skipper, the Marine patrol with the dog, and the pilots that flew night fighters.

Capt. Storm ? Dont know the other two.

Jerry you ever read The Forgotten Soldier by Guy Sajer? Recommended to me by a friend, Special Forces veteran, truly astonishing WW2 memoir - Russian Front.

Has gotten flak for some mangled details, yet "Despite the recent critique from mostly U.S. military historians, it is still considered by the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College to be (at the very least) an accurate roman clef and has remained on their recommended reading list for World War II, along with other historical novels. It is also on the recommended reading list of the Commandant of the United States Marines Corps" Also USAF notable books list

I highly recommend the remake with Denzel Washington. It's a solid film. Great cast.

The political theme iand climate n the movie is so, so similar to today it's scary. The movie was done 15 years ago.

Agreed, the original was pretty close to current events as well.

I've probably posted about this before, but my Dad was in the 196th Field Artillery, Battery A. During the battles mostly know as the Battle of The Bulge, his battery of 105 howitzers got moved along the front lines pretty quickly. Several times his battery and a mortar platoon held areas while infantry troops did a "retrograde movement" (they were in full retreat). He told us several times about how they would actually sight down the barrel at a tank or personnel carrier coming around corners, fire, hop in the jeep, and pull a couple of hundred yards across the town.
We thought it was just "story telling" until the internet gave us the opportunity to find photos of them doing just that. Not to mention that Ambrose wrote in "Citizen Soldiers" about a group of 155 cannons doing the same thing with German fortifications inside Germany.
He was injured in an artillery barrage on his location December 31, 1944, almost at midnight. Doctors used wire made from melted silverware to wire his skull back together.
