And now, in a lighter military vein…


  1. That right there’s funny, I don’t care who you are.

    Terrific movie, incidentally. One thing struck me as odd: when the narrator was reading off the names of those who won the Victoria Cross for their efforts in this engagement, I seem to recall that the Sgt. Major wasn’t one of those who received that award, in spite of demonstrating great leadership qualities. Possibly, what is considered above and beyond for enlisted men and officers is just considered standard operating procedure for your typical Sgt. Major?

    • Could be. The only Sgt Majors I’m acquainted with are the movie variety, and they all behave like they’ve got an extra pair.

  2. Now that I think of it, I may have the sergeant’s actual rank wrong; I have this very vague recollection that it might not have been Sgt. Major but something else. Color Sgt., perhaps?

  3. Glad I was not drinking my morning coffee when I read this! It would have been out my nose and all over my computer! 😂😂😂
