A National Guard tank crew on war games suddenly find themselves back in time to June 25, 1876 the day General Custer fought and lost to the Sioux at the battle of the Little Big Horn. They report what they've seen and heard but the officer-in-charge is more than a little dubious about what they claim. They return to the area and when the attack begins they join the fight. When the commander goes to locate them, they find something else entirely. Written by garykmcd

Old friend
10 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ron Foster is an old family friend.Knew his kids Gene,Paul ,Mike ,Craig .When i was 8 years old we watched the first moon landing at his beach house in Newport beach. ca. I remember him jumping up with his arms flailing around in the air and turning to shake my dads hand.It's a memory i don't think i will ever forget.He was a cool guy and a nice person .His late wife Joan was also nice.He used to show up at my parents annual Christmass parties they had in Tustin about 9 years ago .That was the last time i saw him and his new wife.I hope he's doing well and i bet my folks would be thrilled to hear from him in Virginia .Ron if your still around ,I always look for that twilight zone and the outer limits episodes .jeff.
