How could you top Band of Brothers, one of the greatest miniseries ever made? Same makers, this time in the Pacific Theater

I am more excited about this series because it features one of the greatest Marines ever existed, Gunnery Sergeant John Basilone from my neighboring town of Raritan, NJ.

How great is Basilone? If you just earned a Medal of Honor for fighting in Guadalcanal and survived, no one will fault you if you decide to retire. Basilone felt differently and volunteered for Iwo Jima, where he was killed.

The only greater honor would be to name the Browning .30 Cal Heavy Machine gun after Basilone.

With a $200 million budget, it is sure to be epic.
