Nice. Reminds me of Marwencol by Mark Hogancamp, which provided the basis and inspiration for the upcoming film 'Welcome to Marwen' starring Steve Carell:

I remember getting in trouble from my dad back in the day. For digging up the yard to make fox holes for them

In UK he was called action man, and has made a bid for a comeback – nice to see a cameo roll for Cindy as well…

Untold numbers of little green army men of mine 'still on patrol' somewhere in our old backyard!

Used to play wargames in the yard with my 3in GI Joe figures and vehicles. That or would set them up on the opposite end of the yard and shoot bottle rockets at them!

Yep, that about sums up my youth in four photos not that my back yard looked like that. But, you grow up, have kids, and everything changes…

Action Man is just the British version. When I finally got a US "GI Joe" I was confused about the beard. Maybe he was Special Forces?
