Did You Know?


This is partly based in the real life story of US Army Special Forces Sergeant Kiki Sanchez. Sanchez was a member of the Green Berets who underwent the selection process for Delta Force alongside 'The Unit' writer/co-producer Eric Haney. He failed to qualify for the organisation and subsequently left the US Army and traveled to Nicuragua where he became a Captain in the Communist regimes' armed forces. He eventually led a group of Marxist rebels on a raid over the Nicuraguan border into neighbouring Honduras. Sanchez and every one of the rebels accompanying him were eventually all hunted down and killed by Honduran Special Forces led by members of Delta Force including Eric Haney. Controversey still rages today as to whether Sanchez genuinely defected to the Communists or whether he was actually still working undercover for the CIA and his death was the result of some form of dreadful mistake.

Old Home Week is probably episode 7
2 November 2006 | by paeandonlySee all my reviews

"Report By Exception" which should have aired 10/24 was/is episode 6. "Old Home Week"s 'previously on the unit' segment included scenes from "Report" that have not yet aired. The story sequence will be messed up if we consider "Old Home Week" to be episode 6.

Read someplace that "Report" may have aired overseas, so looks like the epi# will be fubared for season 2.

Another line to satisfy posting guidelines.

And another line.

Yet another line to satisfy posting guidelines.

Succinctness is apparently not a virtue.
