Correct, just watched episode called "For the Record" where Saunders received a personal voice message from his mother and sister recorded on what looks like a 45 rpm record. If I remember correctly, in the same episode he reveals his hometown is Cleveland.
Was one of my favorites growing up along with Rifleman Have gun will travel Pallidon I think. Wanted Dead or alive and Wagon train. Great stories with a moral compass and endings that made you think how you could be strong brave and have love of country
Sgt Chip Saunders I believe and I believe his TV show brother was on a episode also or it was another young soldier that reminded Saunders of his younger brother, It might have been the episode called The Letter
2 weeks ago I drove a Bud to Ventura and we drove right by the spot Vic morrow was decapitated, helicopter filming the Stephen King movie.... how do I know? My Bud is a retired LA County Sheriff and he was on the set at the time of filming...
I've been counting the "shots" that are "fired" on the screen during the opening credits (a minute or two after the beginning of the episode). I count eight every time, the same as the magazine capacity of the M1 Garand military rifle they used. Coincidence?
Always liked Vic Morrow. What a tragic end.

When we watched this show when it was new, imagine all the guys who served in WWII who were still pretty young yet. It makes me wonder about the politicians we have in office today who never were in the service much less saw combat. I'm sure for those of us old enough to remember some stories of the horrors or war from our prior gen, not at all discounting our Vietnam vets here, they have a distinct 'perspective'. It's truly sad to have watched these men I knew grow old, fragile, and need help getting up off a friggin chair, thinking of their service to our country. When I was young, remembering December 7, 1941 was a BIG deal. Today it gets some brief print in the back pages of the paper or net. Lets hope our younger gen's don't have another WW to reflect on.
Season 2 episodes 4 & 5 (two-part) called "The Long Way Home" had some realism worked into the first five minutes when Saunders and his squad ran out of ammunition. They all surrendered to "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" star Richard Basehart.
Season 2 episode 6: Leonard Nimoy has a small part in "The Wounded Don't Cry."
As of the year 2019, the BAR (Browning Automatic Rifle) is now 100 years old. Video of live automatic fire:
Sad and ironic that Rick Jason died in 2000 of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. http://articles.latimes.com/2000/oct/23/entertainment/ca-40653
