        They act as a 1944 CNN , with a flash each 1/2 hours to give evolution of the situation on Normandy front, very clever

              My father's friends were coast guardsmen - an honorable occupation in peace
              - deadly knowledge in wartime - he's not going to sleep well tonight
              He's 78 years old & grabbed the single malt - the wife is pissed - but
              memories die the hardest - God bless em all!

                  It's rather ironic - my father was so concerned about his friends - near as he can tell both died from direct shell hits on LCVP's - one at Tarawa - totally
                  inexcusable - one at DD1 Green - just one of many deaths that day
                  It's just so hard - what we would consider friends - he's had to live with so many years! I thought he might go to Normandy as he got older - he got really upset at the fact I wanted to go diving in the Solomons on my honeymoon - I guess the Marines don't wish to disturb any potential ghosts -
                  he requested! that I serve in the 8th Air Force if I could pick anywhere in the world
