I had wondered. Many things change over time and since the bulk of my reading has concerned WWII, that's my point of reference usually. I've begun to read a bit more of the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and sometimes the terminology is different. Usually I can make a decent guess, but not always!
I don't think I'm ready for shipfitter striker though.. I'll just practice my needlegunning skills (I had a good teacher
)... and cleaning/painting/gofer skills...
Looking forward to the next installment... And I sure enjoyed the D-Day and Radio posts everyone made. I agree with Jim Mackie.. when we can't be there, it's great to be able to 'see' it via the website!
