re: Assignment due today... how do you interpret this? - Ace Midnight

re: Finally watched Mad Men Season 1. Incredible. - Ace Midnight
I binge watched on Netflix and was in real time through Season 4, IIRC. Then, for whatever reason, I missed the start of Season 5. It wouldn't be the end of the world to try to catch back up. I keep forgetting about it....

I'm actually supported by the 88th RRC, so I've dealt with that patch in the past. 85th Division, "Custer Division" As far as the Red Army (I'm not 100% it was under the name U.S.S.R. or Soviet Union), but the 85th fought with the White Army against the Red Army in the Russian Civil War at t...

[quote]I think you're right. [/quote] I always loved the German night fighters, for whatever reason. The JU 88 and BF 110 did most of the work, but I liked the lighter production ones as well. Hitler would do ANYTHING to avoid building a strategic bomber - :lol:...
