    Back in the 1950's My Dad and I used to watch the WW2 stories of the submarine war, called the "Silent Service".

    It was based on actual war patrols of US submarines in service at the time, 1942 to 1945, using actors to fill the parts of the crews.

    For the first time in 65 years, I heard the rousing song that introduced each episode!

    How wonderful is the Internet, and my Search Engine "AOL Search"!

    Do you remember "Victory at Sea"? Wonderful music and narration, not to mention the actual film content. Preparation for the series included gathering 60 million feet of war film footage, which was reduced to 60,000 to produce the series. Hearing the rolling music, I can just see the waves shown during the intro!

    We now get the Military History Channel, believe it or not thru a sports package, and it's very interesting.

    Yowsah, Frank!

    We not only watched every episode of "Victory at Sea", but I also bought the Vinyl Album, exactly like the one you show, which shows the carrier USS Yorktown, sunk by a Japanese bomb raid.

    My only real question about old TV series is "Which Charlie's Angel is the prettiest?"

    The Angel I didn't like was Farah Fawcett.

    Farah was probably the flashiest of the bunch and Kate Jackson the least flashy but perhaps the most talented, although I think Jacqueline Smith worked more places.

    However, as is also TRUST, FORGIVENESS must be EARNED, and cannot be BOUGHT.
