kamikaze

I recently was talking to a friend of mine who served in the Pacific in WWII. He was telling me about the fear on his ship because of kamikaze attacks, and the difficulty in shooting them down because they would often fly so low to the water that the guns on the American ships were useless. They could'nt be lowered far enough to get the kamikaze planes in their sights.

That's what the Enola Gay was for.

I was looking at all the things on your personal profile that I knew nothing about & decided to google them. Found all kinds of interesting ones(phrenology charts, linguistics, reconquista) & learned about Stalingrad (bloodiest in human history), Rommel/Afrika Korps, 2nd Ammendment rights, Cherokee Nation, Stonewall Jackson, etc. etc. Now i'm hooked on other profile interests. Thanks S.O.S. p.s. googling Cherokee Nation on youtube took me right to the video of Cher's "Half-breed"

Thanks for posting that. My dad's uncle was on the U.S.S. Wasp when it was sunk by Japanese zeroes. When the survivors would surface in the water, the zeroes would strafe in a circle over and over again.

Another reason I am glad to be undraftable...
