Our lives are different,....yet we both Love America.
We both understand the Amazing History since the first Colonies.
Was watching JAG Season 8 episode ....Each of us Angel's
The story is about Nurses in the Pacific during late WW 2 off Iwo Jima.
It's just a TV show ....JAG is very popular.
The story is sad ending...
It's not far from the truth as what occured in the Pacific WW 2 for Nurses.
On April 22nd 1945 off Okinawa,....USS Isherwood was attacked by 3 Kamikazes.
1 pressed in past the gunfire ,...hitting aft of the second stack at 5 inch mount 3.
Av gas and the planes bomb ripped the ship open like a can opener.
8 Fires were put out in record time,...except the broken depth charge rack amidships.
That exploded. ..killing all the men fighting that fire.
The crew secured the damaged ship....she limped into the Kerama Rhetto anchorage on one shaft,
To join the dozens of other scarred warships parked after Kamikaze attack.
Days later. ...a Japanese plane Kamikaze into a US Navy Hospital ship
Wiped out several operating theatres,
Here....many Nurses and doctors perished.
And so too.....some of the injured crew from USS Isherwood.
Meeting the crew of USS Isherwood DD 520 inspired my Faith.
We can't control the future,...it just happens.
We however can leave a Legacy by what we do.
America of the 50's was the Glory of All that was bought in hardship from before.
If only these wars could cease,
With wealth and investment go to the Citizen and the Nation.
That Trade and Travel could be Desired!...
It's not fair that the 1% have this 1000x's over,
And some never get to see the World.
A World.... bought and paid for by duty and sacrifice.
