Saving Private Ryan

This month, Saving Private Ryan opened in American theaters.  I like that movie and watch it once a year on the anniversary of D-day.

First time I watched it, I thought Captain Miller was there with his family, until it was revealed that it was Private Ryan was the man there with his family. I like the movie also. I am thankful for these brave soldiers who were really involved in this all out war. My family lost a member on Christmas Day in the battle of the bulge . He came home on leave just before Normandy, and told the family that he had a deep feeling that something big was about to take place and he loved them all, and he would not return. He was correct.

It is amazing how some people see the future. He was a very brave to return to his unit knowing that he would die during his next battle.

Yes they tried to make it as realistic as could be. But you know Jim. Our boys of WW2 fought and fought and many did not make it and many did. Many survivors went on to the Korean conflict and were killed there, after all they had went through in Europe and al the world. The Big Red One is a good example if I remember correctly.

Here is some information about the 1st infantry ?The Big Red One? it doesn?t say about Korea here though. I might have been mistaken about their part in Korea.. I will look further.
