SILENT VICTORY Production Stills This web site is dedicated to the memory of Col. William C. Maus, Jr. (1928 - 1998)
These are some of the behind-the-scenes photos taken by Don and Annette Hall during production of SILENT VICTORY.
Ft. Benning, GA, August 1998
Ft. Bragg, NC, October 1998
F/51st LRS member Dave Grieninger (second from right) was instrumental in making the Ft. Bragg shoot a success. Without his can-do, make-it-happen attitude, we would not have obtained such great results during this shoot. Later, Dave left F/51st LRS to become a helicopter pilot and served in Afghanistan. He in still in the Army and is now a Warrant Officer.

Video crew with F51st LRS (Long Range Surveillance). The LRS footage did not make it into the final version of SILENT VICTORY because the focus ended up staying on F/51st LRP (Abn) Inf in Vietnam. It may one day be considered for bonus material.
