COMBAT! FAN PAGE
What's New on the Site?
2011: NOTES Hi visitors! My summer project is a
general clean-up of this website. This website been up for many, many years
-- since 1995 -- and
I'm revisiting all the pages, cleaning up any broken links and updating
information. If you see something that needs fixing, please let me know!
The forum, alas, is broken - you can view older comments but can't add
any new comments. Even so, I hope you enjoy the website and will come
visit us again.
Saunders in Bronze
Artist (and Combat! fan) Michael
Keropian has designed and created a truly superb work of art honoring
Sergeant Saunders. Please visit his website at
keropiansculpture.com/sgt_saunders.html for more photos and further
He has also designed a stunning bust of our hero.
NOTE: I'm testing out a "rate the episode"
feature that lets you not only give your own 0 to 4-bayonet rating, but
also lets you leave comments. Please check out this feature by visiting
any of the episode reviews on the site. If you catch any errors, please
let me know!

07/27/2002 More additions to the Actors in WWII
07/23/2002 From the mailbag:
I remembered Rick saying at RECON 2000, and in a letter to Jo printed in
her book how Rick had given away his rifle he carried on the show to Charlie Callas. I
wrote to Charlie to inquire about IF he still had it
in his possession. Here is his reply.
Thanks for your e-mail. Enjoyed hearingfrom you. Sorry to say the Rifle was given to a
friend of mine in 1985. He has since passed away and I have no idea what he did with it or
where it could be. I remember the barrel being plugged with lead so it could not be fired.
It was one of many Carbines that the Studio had. The Studio always has several back-ups of
the same article - in case one busts etc. etc.
I guess it is lost forever. To bad. It would have made one heck of a memento to all us
fans to see it after all this time. I did write back tell Charlie how I enjoy his work

fans. It's called Donald's
Story. It tells the true story of an Army Air Corp. pilot's experience in WWII. The
pilot's niece wrote the book and she tells his story through letters that he wrote home. I
have never read a book that gives you so many perspectives of the war both on a personal
level and an historical one. It's one of the most touching stories I have ever read. All
you P-51 fans will really enjoy the technical stuff! Truly a unique account.
