On the History Channel here in Canada Combat used to come on just before or just after Tour of Duty, but I can't recall which was which. Used to love it.
BTemple - Because of Conbat and Lt. Hanley on the show, fell in love with M1 Carbine... so I bought one in .22 LR... wish I could afford the real think but I'm saving for a M1 Garand when they arrive from the Philippines via the CMP (Civilian Marksmanship Program).
Just remembered another tv show - Baa Baa Black Sheep with Robert Conrad.
