Fascinating -- I live in the DC area and I don't get the Pentagon Channel! Never heard of it. I have the Military Channel, however, which is always good for some eye candy.

The Pentagon Channel is where I first fell in love with MG Rick Lynch. Every Thursday morning they broadcast the Baghdad Brief. Rick did that briefing until May, 2006. They also carry "Battleground" which features John Wayne in some episodes. It's the best place to catch up on any DOD briefings and announcements.

Ah, kind of like my crush on Peter Pace. I completely understand! Funny that I don't get that channel. But then again, I have my own DOD briefer living with me ;o)
