"The job happened so quickly, itís really all a blur. (But that could just be my old brain getting older.) I do remember being so excited about getting to work on such a hit show, as well as flying to Hawaii! I arrived late evening, shot the entire next day, then left early the next morning. Didnít get to see much of anything, having just enough time to pick up an ashtray to bring home to my grandparents.

What I do remember was all the red mud and rain, making everything a little miserable. And quite frankly, I also remember an assistant director who acted like a big jerk. During the scene after I was hit by the claymore, one of the other guys in the bunker opened fire on the enemy with the M60. I was like 2 feet away from it, and I politely asked for a set of earplugs. The AD ridiculed me, yelling out to the entire crew that I was holding things up because I needed ear protection. Wasnít my fault that they were behind that day.

 

 

 

 

The good parts that I remember were all the great guys on that set. They were so nice and welcoming, and I got the feeling that they were really grateful for the gig. They were all telling Tony Becker that this was his Emmy episode, because of the emotional rollercoaster he had to ride in his scenes. "
