I was stationed at Marine Barracks Hawaii, Guard Company Pearl Harbor during the 50th anniversary. Got to talk to some of the old timers who made it back for the event. Heard stories of the Marines who were on the roof of our building shooting at the "germans" with their Springfield rifles. Pretty neat. Great duty station except for all the dog and pony shows we were tasked with.

Thanks for bringing that up Mike.

I will not forget.

My Dad was a senior in highschool in 41. Graduated and turned 18 in May 42. Signed up on his birthday. Among other infamous beach landings, he served in Normandy on D-day.
more story here.

I had an uncle that fought the Japanese in Europe. I was told he died from wounds received during the Battle of the Bulge.

Before the war.




Buried in Arlington.

Scott says he's at the mall, perhaps he's negotiating ... Hope all is well.
