    One of the finest movies ever made is on TCM right now...

    Sergeant York...only seen it about 18 times. Love the part where he says "That rifle shoots a mite to the right". "Some folks say I was shooting a rifle before I was weaned".

    True. It's unfortunate that he was also the namesake of one of the worst examples of Pentagon procurements ever. The Sgt. York AA AFV was an absolute disaster. HH

    He was a distant relative to my grandmother. I forget the succession, but her mother married into the York family and he was something like an uncle or great uncle.

    Too bad Gary Cooper didn't sport the mustache.
