Definitely rocked the Casbah with this one, dude.
An impressive homage to an impressive show about a group of pretty goddamn impressive individuals.  Next to Private Ryan, the best anyone has ever done portraying what these young men endured.  
Sadly, however, just so someone like Donald Trump could possibly be sworn in as Commander-in-Chief.

Is our reign of Caesar[s] about to begin?
Are we that close to the end, already?

It truly played really well with 'what is a man'. Heroism and grit but a mixture of deep and unforgettable emotions. I am so glad that I wasn't born into this era and had to deal with the extreme responsibilities these brave men and women had to deal with. Noone deserves the fate they had. We are lucky to be safe and 'free' (to an extent haha).
