Band Of Brothers Bastogne reunion things (that I wanted to share):
(I was going to do this a bit differently, but I kinda just wanted to sum up everything and not on the reunion things I attended, so I’ll just do a random bullet point list. So they might not be in order, and I won’t really separate things between Friday and Saturday. But if anyone wants to know more about a certain thing, feel free to ask)
James Madio face timing Rich (who was in Australia) to show him the queue. I didn’t personally see it, but it happened while I was stood by the table, so apparently Rich has seen me without me knowing x)
Shane Taylor getting super excited when I told him my name was Roe and grabbing my arm and generally just being super happy. Him also remembering me on Saturday and basically having a chat with me for as long as he could before we were ushered out of the room, and then waving to me when I left (he is so sweet I’m so happy)
Bart Ruspoli asking me and El ( @really-itshotinafrica ) what our favourite episode was, and both of us having no ide what to say to that, and having to think for ages.
Rick Gomez and Ross McCall being super excited about everything and asking if I wanted a photo with them, which I ended up getting because I didn’t want to say no. I look awful in it, but both of them look great, so hey ho.
Dale Dye generally just being a massive sweetie.
James forgetting if he had signed the posters I had or not and having to double check.
Me finding out Robin Laing is Scottish during the Q&A session and basically being sat there in shock for a few minutes (I didn’t know okay I got so shocked).
Bart being a bit confused when I reached him on the Saturday, because he recognised me, so I had to tell him I’d been there the day before as well.
Rick Gomez and James Madio going to the bathroom together, and popping out behind Dale on the way and generally just being great.
Bob Izumi, a 101st Airborne veteran signing things for ages and basically just being a badass.
30 Days of Band of Brothers ❙ Day 30: Summarize the series in three sentences └ It’s a story about a time, a story about countries, a story about the men who fought for freedom. But above all things, a story about friendship. A friendship that will live forever as they are still today a band of brothers.
