"I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company. We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and constant barrage is on us. I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. I will hold." (Message sent by 1st Lt. Clifton B. Cates. USMC, 96th Co., Soissons, 19 July 1918 - later 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps 1948-1952)

I had to Google the award as well to see who the movie was about. We all know a few medics in WW2 were awarded this and that many soldiers feel their unit medics deserved one, as well.

The funny thing about this trailer was while I was watching it, I thought, "people are gonna go nuts, as there are no Marines in a PTO movie!" I always like to remind folks there were far more Army personnel in the PTO than Marines...

Looks very promising, and unless it's like a completely rediculous premise like GI's vs. Hitler's Zombies, I'm usually every happy to see WWII period piece movies come out.

Interested in all items relating to the 7th AAF, especially those of the VLR P-51 Pilots of the 15th, 21st, and 506th Fighter Groups.

I hear you. When we do an Army 25th Infantry division pacific reenacting impression at our Reading WWII weekend, I can't tell you how many people come by and see the bamboo and go "Oh cool...Marines!" Argh. Drives me up a wall!!

The story of Desmond Doss has always been on my top 3 US war movies which have not yet been made....

 

Devil at My Heels, the story of Louis Zamperini (1956) - released as Unbroken (one down)

 

The Unlikeliest Hero, the story of Desmond Doss (1967) - to be released as Hacksaw Ridge (second in production)

 

Now to get Hollywood's attention to this WWI gem on it's upcoming Centennial .....

 

Prisoner of the U-90 by Edouard Viktor Michel Izac (1919)
