      In the early 80’s, I remember watching this movie about Marines going on some kind of special meeting. This was one of those movies that used to air a lot on late night television, long before cable came about for most of us. I loved the movie that tugged on my heart strings, but it stopped airing and I somewhat forgot about it, except that it was buried in the back of my mind.

      I also knew that in this movie, whatever it was called, there was a young Marine that I thought was hot. I mean, I loved this character. He was ‘my’ Marine, whoever he was.

      Fast forward more than a decade, and I suddenly find myself a fan of Patrick Swayze. I’m checking out his credits and see this movie listing — Uncommon Valor. I acquired a copy and the moment it started ...


      • playing, I was jumping up and down. This was that war movie I’d watched repeatedly years and ago. Then it dawned me. Oh my gosh, Patrick Swayze was ‘my’ Marine! Whoa!

        I do love Uncommon Valor. Gene Hackman stars, with a notable appearance by Robert Stack. The rest of the guys are not so well known — Fred Ward, Reb Brown, and wrestler Randall ‘Tex’ Cobb, who Swayze says nearly killed

        him while doing a fight scene. Apparently, Cobb can wrestle, but he wasn’t very good at stunt fighting.

        This movie is a rescue movie, the old war troop getting back together to try and find Hackman’s and Stack’s sons. There are some surprises along the way, too.

        I still love the movie, and Swayze’s character is still ‘my’ Marine. Uncommon Valor is on cable frequently these days and is well worth taking the time to view.
