The Gallant Men

Evidently it is showing on the GoodLife Network.
Cudos for the Tony Kornheiser radio show which mentioned that Combat was showing on this network. Checking
that out I came upon this show. I remember Combat from my childhood, actually it's showing on TBS in the late 70's,
but I have never heard of "The Gallant Men".
Was this show any good? Anyone remember it?
Note the reoccuring role of "Private Saunders".

And yes, Starz Action Channel is following the Combat! series' episodes in order. Fun to follow along with the Jo Davidsmeyer book, catching the bloopers (and finding more while watching). Ya just can't beat Sgt. Saunders. Well-written stuff, too.
Sgt. Rock, Sgt. Fury & His Howling Commandos, and G.I. Combat were my fave comics as a kid. I howled like a wolverine when they raised the price of comics from 10 cents to 12. I just realized, they don't put the "cents" sign on computer keyboards. Oops, showing the age again. Better hit the hay...it's 7:30PM!
Fun to remember that stuff; thanks to cable TV and the folks that keep the old films intact, we can keep enjoying it.
Fun post on this one; we can always use more.
PS: Junglewalk, funny story about the mortar barrage! Hope all were well afterwards!

The Losers also loved the Thompson. (topic save!)
