Good Morning!

Beautiful day setting up here in Wisconsin.

Enjoyed your history of MacArthur.

Little known fact... MacArthur lost fewer men under his command in the Pacific then in the ETO. His strategy was to let the Japanese come to them, rather than the other way around.

Thanks for doing a great job on this thread. I don't always get here, but I appreciate all that is done.

Just picked up Mike Durant's book, In the Company of Heroes. Great story about the Somilia battle, and his survival.

Thank you.

I can't take any credit other than posting it for SAMWolf, he did the thread work and I'm posting it for him while he has in-laws visiting. We're glad you enjoyed it, and glad you had a chance to stop in.

Thank you for sharing the information on MacArthur and Mike Duran'ts book.

Thanks Northern Yankee.

Don't let Snippy tell you she isn't doing much. She's been a great addition to the Foxhole and there wouldn't be a thread for about two weeks if it wasn't for her.
