Sergeant Bilko   1951 Parade Originally known as "You'll Never Get Rich" and then "The Phil Silvers Show," the granddaddy of all military sitcoms was broadcast from 1955 to 1959. Silvers starred as Master Sgt. Ernie Bilko, the con artist supreme who turns Fort Baxter into his personal base of operations for one get-rich-quick scheme after another. Harvey Lembeck, Joe E. Ross, and Maurice Gosfield as Pvt. Doberman were among the members of Bilko's platoon, and Paul Ford played the camp commander. . .

Featured Member- jedwgrn aka Jack My name is Jack and this trek of mine began in Dallas in '49. Raised in Irving, TX, I am one of seven kids which made for a crowd in a small house and you had to not be the last to the table during chow time. Now, I am the father of four and the grandfather of nine and I am proud of everyone of them. Just ask me, I have pictures. My family was and is the primary focus for most of my life and kids in sports and other activities claimed most of my free time. These are the days I thought I would have more time for myself, not so. I seem to be busier now than ever. April marks my 40th anniversary with the US Army in one capacity or another. Talk about being a lifer. In April of '69 I was drafted into the Army in Dallas, spent two years in (infantry and Vietnam) and then got out. The next two years I went to school while a reserve member and then returned to active duty in 1973. My military retirement was effective July of 1992. I retired as a Master Sergeant after serving as a First Sergeant for seven years. Immediately thereafter I returned to service in a civilian capacity, which is where I remain. Today it still is all about soldiers. I work and teach in a dental prosthetics laboratory for an Army residency program that has Army and Navy dentists to include two Canadian officers as residents. I have a job that I really like what I do. So, as I have always asked myself, 'Where to from here?' Haven't got a clue - perhaps this is the last stop, God willing.

Sergeant York Movie Poster A very attractive poster for the 1941 Gary Cooper movie Sergeant York. (I've always thought conscientious objectors should be made to watch this excellent film.)

In Their Own Words In Their Own Words .. Remembering the Forgotten Theater of World War II The China - Burma - India Theater Throughout the history of the world, in times of peril and aggression, nations have called upon their military forces for defense against their enemies. Our country has been very fortunate for, whenever the men and women who comprise our Army, Navy, air forces and other services have been called upon; they have served their country bravely and faithfully, regardless of where they were sent or what they were asked to do. Many Americans remember their dedicated service and are appreciative of their performances, but, too soon after the danger is over, the services of these veterans fade into oblivion. 1st Lt.

Our Gang - Farina Allen Hoskins became part of Hal Roach's Our Gang troupe in 1922 before he was two years old. At first Hoskins' Farina character was androgynous; in some films he's a male, in others he's a female. Farina soon evolved into a fully male character--and one of the most popular of the late silent and early talkies period. Often dressed in a bizarre array of mismatched gaudy clothes, Farina's character was the stereotypical 'pickaninny.' By the time his tenure as Farina on Our Gang ended in 1931, Hoskins was the top-salaried performer, earning $250 per week. Hoskins briefly had a vaudeville act with his sister, but gradually drifted away from show business. 'I prefer jobs where I eat regularly,' he quipped. Hoskins served in WWII, rising to the rank of sergeant. Late in Hoskins' life he worked tirelessly with the disabled and mentally ill. Like his fellow black Our Gang performers, Hoskins was annoyed at the political correctness that caused the series to be heavily edited for TV in the early 1970s. While acknowledging that blacks were steroetyped in the Our Gang comedies, he pointed out that whites were too: There were the stereotypical fat kids, bullies, nerds, freckle-faced kids, and pretty blondes. He was also quick to point out that in an era when much of America was segregated, the racially mixed Our Gang kids played, socialized, and went to school together. Hoskins died of cancer a month before his 60th birthday in 1980.

Kenneth Washington Kenneth Washington is another Hogan's Heroes cast member who is still alive. Washington, now 65, played Corporal Richard Baker in the final season of Hogan's Heroes (1970-71). He effectively replaced Ivan Dixon (Sergeant James Kinchloe) who had left the cast after the show's fifth season. Baker assumed Kinchloe's role as the heroes' radio operator. During the show, no explanation was ever offered as to what happened to Kinchloe or how Baker became part of the heroes. That's kind of odd when Stalag 13 was supposedly an escape-proof POW camp! Perhaps CBS hoped nobody would notice the change!

Forgotten Sitcom - The Partners In 1971 NBC had high hopes for a new sitcom titled The Partners. It starred Don Adams as Detective Sergeant Lenny Crooke and Rupert Crosse as his partner Detective Sergeant George Robinson. Both cops were prone to acts of comic carelessness but Crooke was the more bumbling of the two. Rare for its time, The Partners had no opening montage or theme song. Its title and credits were simply interspersed among the opening scene. (Music did accompany the closing credits, however, and the same tune was occasionally heard leading into some scenes.) Adams had hoped the series would address serious social issues, but NBC preferred to recast Adams in a purely comedic role similar to his Maxwell Smart character from Get Smart which had ended in 1970. The Partners scored very well with test audiences, so NBC slotted it at 8 p.m. on Saturday night beginning on September 18, 1971. In a stroke of bad luck, in the fall of 1971 CBS decided to move its surprise hit All in the Family to the same time slot to replace the fading My Three Sons. The Partners was crushed in the ratings. It was pulled from NBC's lineup in January 1972 although a few unaired episodes were shown in the summer.
