    Thought it was a good special they had on I think they should look for the USS Lexington CV-4 and USS Langley CV-1.

    I missed a couple episodes in the broadcast also. You can catch the episodes you missed on their streaming app. Very good documentary.

    To bad he went political in episode 7, and he decided that only the marines were in Vietnam, and only the portion of Vietnam north of Saigon counted. Other than that it's not too bad.

    My dad was in the Merchant Marines in WW II. A few days before the Indianapolis sunk, his ship traveled through the exact same area. :eeek

    ... I missed the PBS show on the Indianapolis. Will have to see it.
