Okay, thanks. I've only seen that movie one time. It is a great movie though, thanks!

One time? I thought that was every Marine's favorite movie?
What's yours?

I had been out of the Marine Corps for 10 years when that movie came out. At that time I was going through a divorce and it got past me until a few years ago when one of my nephews here suggested it to me.

My favorite war movie is still "The Longest Day".

You're sure its not some secret signal that only the Freemasons, Rothschilds, Illumatari (however you spell them) and Kerryman would understand?

should I expect Agent Smith any minute?

If so great I don't have to mark all these bloody exam -- which it would seem are from Kerry and would seem to be 'challenged'.

I don't know what my favorite one is, but I like the French WW1 Helmet. The one I've always hated was the one worn by the British and Americans in WW1. The British still carried the ugly thing through the next war. It was so ugly, some of them chose to wear a beret instead.

Out of curiosity, have you seen Jarhead? Heartbreak Ridge? Together with Full Metal Jacket, they're my favorite Marine movies.
