  • This episode is, unfortunately, the fare fed to civilian audiences which improperly leads the ignorant to anti-military sentiments. It was difficult to find anything accurate to redeem this entertaining voyage into fantasyland.

    Almost invariably, when the visual entertainment industry does a piece on the military, those who serve get the short end of the stick. Everything from awards & decorations to unit heraldry, from military protocols to unit objectives is taken from some cauldron of civilian fansasies. This unrealistic, imaginative episode was no exception. Perhaps, some day, the visual media will get it right, but today is obviously not that day. A few minutes' research would go a long way in taking a fairytale into the realm of believability and making a positive step toward restoring public acceptance in the credibility of the media in general.
