World of Valor

Hey guys. Do y'all remember back in the early/mid 90's the Discovery Channel did the "World of Valor" series? Each episode chronicled each branche's elite units.
Does anybody have copies or know where I can find some? I had them on VHS but that box is long gone.
Thanks
s/f

I remember. I had a dozen or so of them. The American ones, Gurkha and Legion were my favorites - especially the westerners that were stuck at Castle because they could not learn French.

Thanks, but I saw those online. The episode on Force Recon wasn't included in any of them.

Who needs to know?

I enjoy watching them over but when I think about it, the rest of the world has plenty movies portraying Seals, Rangers, Force Recon, etc. Aside from recruiting reasons, people do not have the need to know what team members do to get it done.

gfont, click the link and post an introduction. Not your entire SRB or DD-214 but nothing too vague either. Refrain from posting until you do that. Welcome.
