excellent excellent excellent! I have the DVD but need it on my Galaxy 4 Nook. How can I get this done. Also for a movie called "the boys of Co C" and "Firebase gloria"

This is an outstanding Marine Corps movie. A true classic from an era where movies still received official endorsements from the military service represented. It's that good! There is no reason why it shouldn't be on DVD! Get with it Warner Home Video!! We're waiting on you! Well, OWENS!? What's it gonna be!?

The movie is an absolute classic. Yes, it may be an older one, but it is timeless in that it describes in a searingly honest way what must be a marine recruit's coming of age, (I am former military.) Jack Webb was born for this role.

This movie is what is probably most DI's go through each platton. I am in the MCJROTC program and I gotta say it is not easy to be in boot camp for 3 months specially marine boot camp. This movie has a great dialougue. I rarely like movies which came out more than 15 years ago but this movie was great. I believe most young people who watch this will pretty sure want to join the corps.
