" Private Ryan" Premise

"Private Ryan" was well done and a a little too high minded for for a war story.
After all, "stop what you are doing, Captain, take this detail and find this individual",so that we can console a grieving mother from more grief. Huh!High minded ? This guy they wanted, was not some Congressman's son. Just a man,son of a Gold star mother of which, there were thousands of.
I know it was done with the Sullivan brothers in the Navy when some idiot put all 4 brothers on the same ship that went down.
But that's the Navy,not the Army. It would have to be fictitious fiction to happen in the Army. I cannot imagine the repercussions if one was to ask for this type of request. It took them 5 weeks to find my Paybook. I think I'm getting the hang of this, Miselaineous.

Just found your blog.
Thank you for your service to this nation.

The 5 Sullivan brothers requested assignment together, that request traveled a long way up the chain of command before it was approved.

The Sullivan Brothers were all in the Navy..Private Ryan is a fictitious Character in what I call, an attempt of a Hollywood production with excessive blood shed and excessive fiction.
