A new chapter in the Marine Corps legend was written. My uncle was there, a Radioman 3c, on an AKA. He was lucky, he only had to contend with the Kamikazes (which he noted weren’t as bad as the ones he later encountered, literally, at Okinawa).

Today I’ll be at The National Museum of the Pacific War to remember those who gave us so much by giving their all.

Semper Fi, my friends, Semper Fi…

(If anyone finds me there, I’ll buy you dinner. Just ask, “Are you Sparkey?” Contest not open to friends, family, co-workers, members of the communist party, insurgents, weirdos, or the humor impaired.)
