Because it's an open forum, Bob. And because, as I explained in my reply, I was involved in the thread you had issues with. So, I was clarifying for you what my intention was, and that it was not to knock veterans. And also because--again as I explained in my post--I wanted to hear your Ulithi knowledge. What veterans have to say IS important. You were upset that David M. might not have been posting correct info, and claimed you had correct info. Fair enough. I wanted to let you know that I--for one--wanted to hear your side of the story.
Thank you very much for now presenting it. Very much appreciated! On August 22nd, here on this forum, Randy Stone posted this thread, with a link about Ulithi. Is this the info you have (or similar?)
