Memorial Day Blues

Wet rainy day, watching a lot of good gung ho stuff on the tube like "Bataan", "Midway", "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo" or R Lee Ermey play with grenade launchers. Little historical fact about "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo". In real life, the Japanese Army killed 200,000 inhabitants of the province in China where Doolittle's planes landed in retaliation of the folks helping our fliers. More than Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined, except with bayonets, swords, bullets, clubs, artillery and fire.
