    People take World War II seriously. That's good and great, but I hate hat people don't take the War in Afghanistan serious. It's strange. Also, cool video.

    It turns out that if you overwhelm an enemy with fire power you'll win.

    My grandfather didn't get wounded during the Pacific War, but he did get a serious case of the clap on Prostitute Ridge.

    The letter that probably named prostitute ridge

    My father was there and became a raging alcoholic. My mother left him when I was five. He telephoned the house eleven years later and I picked up…he started crying right off once he realized who I was but I didn’t know how to respond, so I handed the phone off to my mom. I’ll never forget that call cause it was the only time I ever talked to him. In 1989, I found out he died of a brain hemorrhage in 1984 after I told my mom I was going to see him. I offer every reception of Holy Communion for his repose since 2000.

    This really puts Eugene Sledges book into perspective. I’m so thankful I live in the same country that these same brave men were from God Speed And anybody who hasn’t read Eugene Sledges book should. There is a free audio book on YouTube even. If you liked this video you’ll love his book

    What is strange ,after all that bloodshed the USA and Japan are best mates now scared shitless of what China will do to them in the 2020s

  21. Shifty Powers says:

    The bullet sounds and explosion sounds are super fake

  22. I knew a soldier who was injured in Pelelieu when a munitions dump behind him was bombed, and exploded. There's no telling how much shrapnel remained in his body, but that tough Marine needed to take Valium for the rest of his life to vanquish the nightmares.
    Pelelieu is where the term "thousand-yard stare," derived from the concept of shell shock (now known as PTSD) and depicted in a famous drawing, originated.
