At about forty-nine minutes and forty seconds in, I continue with our new segment "The Real American Hero"....  Here the team and I will pick the Joe or Cobra that we think did the best job or otherwise impressed us this month.

Then at 55 minutes in to the show, we look at the fifteenth episode of the regular cartoon with "Haul Down The Heavens".  This episode first aired October 4, 1985 and was written by the man himself, Buzz Dixon!

Then 1 hour and 22 minutes in, we have Postbox: The Pit! and then The Solider of the Month!

Stay tuned after I say good bye for the monthly PSA, my closing credits and a our bloopers reel!
