He's my favorite War Hero. A True Gentleman, and he gave his life for his country.


Favorite quote:


"You think you are fighting a bucktooth cartoon dreamed up by some a--hole on Madison Avenue to sell soap? The Japs I know - the Japanese soldiers - have been fighting since you were in diapers." - Basilone

RIP Sergeant Gunnery "Manila" John Basilone ( 1916-1945)

What do you think about John Seda's Performance in the Pacific? I want to see a movie about John Basilone.

definitely see the entire pacific series..many claim that 'bob' was better etc,but the pacific just grows on you,the last few episodes are really strong,everyone should watch those.

I have yet to read the books by sledgehammer and leckie,there's some wild shit going on in the series.i'd love to read about them.

I liked Seda's performance a lot, although it's kinda spread over the entire series so don't get discouraged after the first 2-3 episodes.

think of 'the pacific' as 'the wire' - you need some time to get into it,but eventually you'll love it

He's such an inspiration. I want to see a 2 hours John Basilone movie. From his tour of duty in the Philippines until his death.

Basilone is the real life Rambo.
