DON”T WATCH RERUNS of HOGANS Heros Its downright insulting to our men and woman who served in the Armed Forces and were POW”S.When you see the old T.V. series Hogan’ s Heros staring Bob Crane ,Richard Dawson amoung others it paints a false picture of all fun and games for the POW’S a great time of fun and comaraderie..This is the furthest from the truth for a WW11 German POW Camp inside a German Stalig or The Hanoi Hilton or for the poor souls who endored the Batan Death March of WW11 who were led to a Japanese POW camp. I personaly had an Uncle who was an American seviceman captured in North Africa by Romels invading Army and sent to a German Stalig. The beatings the Torture,the stuff that went there that we can’t even begin to print here. There was even a POW WW11 movie staring Peter Graves,Harvey Lembrick & William Holden..not as much different in portraying a false image of the reality of a POW camp ..once again it was all fun & games in Pow camp just like as The Hogan’s Heroes T.V.Show .
Whenever you see a War movie and you see the soldiers wearing offical U.S. Army uniforms or even refering to themselves as U.S Army or the post Office for that matter and they are in offical Post office attire be rest asured it has the complete blessing & approval of UNCLE SAM.. In other words perhaps our government wants this image to be shown as to soften what is the true reality of war is really like. If Uncle Sam dislikes the content of the script in any way shape, manner or form then it doesn’t give it’s approval to use official U.S. Uniform & insignias in that particular film. I saw many 3 stooges clips and the U.S.Army didn’t aprove of their portrayal of The Army & they had to use non official UNIFORMS & badges in their films ..DO NOT FEED INTO THIS DESPITION DONT WATCH IT WHEN ITS IN SYNDICATION & REFRAIN FROM BUYING ANYTHING THAT THE SPONCER SELLS.
