I actually got to meet Richard Dean Anderson at Phoenix ComicCon. Great guy.

But my addled brain cant come up with favorite individuals. Now, groups, 2 came to mind.

The crew of the USS Nathan James on The Last Ship, and of course, the good ol 4077th MASH. Id say Stargate stuff more, but I wanted to be diverse. More to come when Im not brain dead.

 He portrayed himself in the show, Ben is a real country guy in real life to. He has several horses I believe and is an avid visitor to the Vs events in the states. I've loved in since I saw him in Farscape  <3

 Met him in Sydney a couple of years ago, he is a really nice man :)

 I haven't seen the last ship, but I love MASH!!!!! its on almost everyday here.





 I'm a bit of a rebel with the series, I hated Burns and I didn't like L/Col Blake much, I thought he was a little on the sleazy side sometimes. He was funny tho.

lol....oh Frank...

Frank: "Pierce, you're disgusting!"
Hawkeye: "That's right, Frank, I've been discussing you, we've all discussed you're disgusting."

The Last Ship is on Hulu, it's actually pretty solid so far. Mankind is getting wiped out by a mystery virus, the last hope for a cure are two doctors on a USN Arleigh Burke-class Destroyer. They worked pretty closely with the Navy so they do a good job keeping accurate so far.

Special agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs - I know he's not necessarily military per se, but he's still a badass character all the same :P

This show was my first introduction to special operations in popular media:



It has always had a place in my heart, despite how badly it's aged haha.

Two of my favorites that are unknowns to most are actually a couple of French movies, Special Forces and Sky Fighters. They're both pretty good and the French military was heavily involved with both, which just adds to the whole experience.

Does anybody remember the show Soldier of Fortune, Inc?  My intro into the world of SpecOps lol...
This is what my 12 year old self spent ALL of her time thinking about.  I wrote so many mental fanfics for this show.




I have so many vivid memories of this show.  I bet I'd puke if I watched it now lol.





It was so high class they invited Dennis Rodman to join the cast haha

Oh. Speaking of NCIS, a big one in the house while I was growing up was JAG.

I know a few actors and actresses who've played the military roles, though I still have to say the one that is my favourite overall, has to be Paul Gross. He usually plays the calm and collected type of character who tries to do good, but often times it gets hated on due to the plan being morally grey. Plus, he tends to focus a fair bit on the historical stuff. Played everything from a Canadian fighting in WW1 to an RCMP officer in Boston back in the 1990's lol.

 Soldier of Fortune was being shown on one of our classic channels recently, I wonder if its still on?  :busy

 Females. Gawd there's been a few. Dad recommended I watch Private Benjamin. I looked at some Youtube, might take him up on that one :D

 

 but honestly, I will always adore Demi Moore in GI Jane. She was superb and played the role as if she was actually doing the SEAL course.

 



 Viggo Mortensen was brilliant to

 


so I gotta leave this :D
