guido, how else to respond to such? Hopefully a little humor will do.

I dare say this drawing of Jim Muri's decent on to the flight deck of a Japanese aircraft carrier is as impressive as any first accent photo I've ever seen.

SL Rat, how does one carrier landing compare with soloing up and down Patio Pinnacle?

Chief,
I had a pal that served on the Enterprise at the same time you were. I don't think he saw much daylight; not even sure of what he did.

John, I could not disagree more about MacArthur. David Halberstam's brilliant book on Korea lays it all out. Didn't care about his men.

I've met virtually no man who served under him who didn't want to kill him.

For an excellent take on MacArthur I recc a reading of just published, "The Generals," by Thomas Ricks. Then again, "The American Cesar," by William Manchester is an excellent bio on the man.

Today is the 71rst anniversary of the Doolittle raid.




Regarding General MacArthur;
he built his reputation fighting in the Pacific.
He is most notable for his actions in the Philippines.
He was sacked by the President for insubordination, and his return home started a national controversy.

And that was ARTHUR MacArthur!!!
He had a son named Douglas who ended up doing the same things!

(they were probably both jackholes to their men)

I just read recently that Midway was the first naval battle the Japanese had lost in over 300 years.

No wonder they thought themselves unbeatable.
