<< Imagine being on a warship in the middle of the oggy when everything started falling apart in '08?>>

My father was pArt of the invasion of Tarawa during WWII. After the island was secured, the Japanese bombed American installations daily for six months "and twice on holidays" as he liked to say, before the Japanese were pushed farther back.

I have pictures of the foxhole he occupied during the bombings. It is visibly chinked with copies of the Wall Street Journal.
