BAND OF BROTHERS RELATED QUESTIONS:
Favorite Easy Company soldier? Why?:Oh, I have so many. Lipton, though, reigns right now -- because he is so selfless, yet has a very good sense of who he is. He doesn't need anyone to validate him, yet appreciates it when it happens during his conversation with Speirs.
Favorite Episode/Part? Why?My favorite episode is probably a tie between Bastogne and The Breaking Point, becuase it shows no mercy. Everyone is seen as they are, not who they necessarily want to be. I think I envy that sort of introspection. Although (can I be honest?) I've developed such a sensitivity to the series that it's difficult for me to watch them - I just get so invested in the characters.
Which solider do you most relate to, personally? Why?:I think more of the quieter ones, yet I can be goofy as well, so I can range from Roe to Lip to Malarkey and Skip; although I don't think I could ever be a hardass like Toye or Speirs.
Do you have a favorite BoB quote? Please share:"Hey Skip! I've been looking for you everywhere, where have you been?" - "Well Don I was at home in Tonawanda but then Hitler started this whole thing so now I'm here."
I you could have taken home one souvenir from the war in Europe, it would have been:(I'm keeping the same answer as last time) A soldier who didn't have a home to go back to.
When you get back home from the war, the first thing you're going to do is: Sleep!
Please Post at Least One Clear Picture of Yourself, or Give us a Description of How You Look: Myself & my brothers!
Just as a disclaimer, this is my third go-round and there is completely no rush to vote on the app, lol -- I just thought it'd be a fun thing on a Monday night, and I haven't gotten around to voting myself until about half an hour ago! :) So if there are others you need to do first, definitely get those done! :)
