The building shown at the opening of the show when they lived on Camp Holister Marine Base is actually Lejeune Hall, the headquarters of Quantico Marine Base in Virginia. It is across from the military lodging on the main road. See more »
"Major Dad" takes a humorous look on the challenges facing typical military families, in this case the family of a US Marine Major. The characters are credible, the acting is above average for these kinds of TV-series, and most importantly, it`s funny. Despite the fact that the series is a comedy, it also shows the difficulties and sacrifices necessary to combine family life and faithful dedication to the military way of life. The series is very pro military(which is good), and is hereby recommended.
