Bob, there probably were thousnds of us who also felt "short-changed" by what we consider "neglect" by the US Navy and the US Government. Nevertheless, everytime I get those feelings I remember those poor Infantrymen, and others, at Anzio and all those other battlegrounds during the war. |
We took troops to Anzio and almost everyone of them were KIA or WIA within the following eight weeks. It was a VERY, VERY miserable place. SOOooo...when I'm feeling down those memories sort of "lighten the load" I feel.
I hope you are OK and believe me, Bob, we understand!
(Incidentally, I also suffered a minor wound from our own anti-aircraft fire and didn't report it because compared to so many it was nothing).
