15. COMBAT TO COLOR!
Combat was the longest running World War II series on TV, running from 1962-1967. I was a fan of the 2 stars--Vic Morrow (as Sgt. Chip Saunders) and Rick Jason (as Lt. Gil Hanley) and I remember going agog when I received Sgt. Saunder's autographed fan photo from Uncle Bob's Lucky 7 Club. But what I really wanted was a Combat coloring book, which was impossible to get in Manila. Four decades later, thanks to ebay, I found one, published by Saalfield, unused and uncolored! Tada-da-dan, ta dan!
