None, I don't have TV right now.  Or more correctly, I do have a couple TVs but they aren't connected to anything.  I canceled my cable 4-5 years ago, and my internet is limited bandwidth.

Darn it... missed them all.  I spent the day doing two oil changes and servicing my 3 fish aquariums.

Thanks,

Nope. Put out Don's flag box, had a dinner party with the priests. One's Irish (doh!) and we talked about the great war a little. He had a great uncle who died at the Marne.

We don't have war movies on TV on armistace day, and it didn't really feel like the day for it, was emotional enough already. I did watch Peter Jacksons They Shall Not Grow Old on the BBC last night though.

Spent the morning at the armastice coomemroration in Bury St Edmunds and went to the lighting of our village beacon in the evening.

No war movies. Just quiet reflection to our veterans while working on the bench. Better than watching any war movies.

No movies yesterday, our re-enacting group did a military timeline representing the Revolution, Civil War, WWI, and WWII at Valley Forge. Brought the Jeep and got to experience how effective WWII cold weather gear was driving a Jeep in 30 degree weather. Not bad it turned out, wouldn't want to try that in the snow though.

Especially in cold hell of Bastogne during the Battle of the Bulge.

With this November 11 being the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, I’m surprised nobody mentioned watching any WWI movies... All Quiet on the Western Front would have been a perfect choice.

I never saw that one.

I like Paths of Glory, and Fly Boys if only for the restored Strutter.

Gallipoli.

The Blue Max.

But my real favorite has to be Lawrence of Arabia.

I was in Jordan in 2010, and went from Aqaba up to Amman.

That rail line built by the Ottomans is still there.

Indeed. The remake had segments from the novel that were not in the original film.

Actually I just didn't feel like watching a war movie.  I've been more concerned with my own conflict with the V.A.

  Maybe this weekend I might watch The Tanks Are Comming.  It might be a bit sorney at times but still one of my favorites.  I will not watch bloody movies.  Kelly's Heroes or sink the Bismark fine but just can't get into PVT. Ryan or others like that.  I have a copy of Band of Brothers and put my Father's parachute patch in the can with the CDs.

Does anybody remember Armed Forces Day?  Each year when I was growing up we would go to Picatinny Arsennal for their open house.  They would have demostrations, tank and weapon displays a decent museum, a bit small but the place is usually not open to the public for obvious reasons, and war games.

Yes I remember Armed Forces Day. One of the cities here has a parade for that every year, Supposedly the largest west of the Mississippi ...

 

Two other films I might recommend for. Veterans Day/Armistace Day next year are The Thin Red Line or We Were Soldiers Once. Both are quite appropriate  for the November timeframe and post WWI era.

Dive Bomber, with Errol Flynn and Fred McMurray. A golden oldie from 1941, and interestingly, in colour !
