The USMC Marines from Camp Genoa are seen in town in their digital (deployment) uniforms. Marines cannot wear those off base other than being in actual field training or combat. For the bar and town scenes, they would be in some combination of the Alpha or Bravo uniform, the dress green blouse and trousers with the Khaki shirt and tie. Or at more formal events, in their blues. See more »

When I first found this show on demand I was already excited. Yet after watching it I was beyond satisfied. Every episode had me at the edge of my seat wondering if it could actually get any better, and it just kept getting better. By the end of every episode I was left in my chair speechless from the shock. I wanted more, and I think I will need more for a very long time, I decided this is going to be one of my favorite shows so long as it airs. I don't think I will ever get enough of this series. The acting is great, the story is epic. The action scenes are perfectly executed. Everything just goes together so well. I don't want to write any spoilers, I just want you to support this show with me, because I want to see season after season, and I don't want it to stop if it keeps up this. This is a good thing that we have been given, and the more we watch it, the more hope it has to be given another season.
