How totally bizarre. This morning over coffee a retiree was speaking of his dad who fought on the USS Belleau Wood.
Against attacking Japanese Zero’s. As a gunner.
Later on he served as an officer on the SS Runner 2. What I couldn’t get over was how he was described as a very hard man. So I decided to look up the history of the carrier.
I had never heard of an aircraft carrier called Belleau Wood and I had never heard of the battle of Belleau Wood in World War 1. Naturally I did my homework. Google is great.. ..sometimes.
And then I promptly flushed the history minutiae away in my memory.
I thought I would never touch it again. And then I see this! Many many thanks for posting this. I never would have known about this probably but for this posting.
How long is it going to be before the name Trump and Reagan are put together over and over and over as a matter of routine? I predict Within 36 months.
