I absolutely loved that show! The only thing it didn't have going for it was its Saturday evening time slot (on opposite Jackie Gleason, I think); Combat! was on Tuesday evenings, and was followed by McHale's Navy.

One of my friends that I played Army with back then was a dead ringer for Pvt D'Angelo, and he had a younger brother who was the spitting image of Charles Bronson.
