Response to Untitled

interesting read. Thanks Susie. I spent a couple hours with Mr. Bacon today ( I printed off a questionaire that I found on the net) and got a lot more about his military service. He joined the Navy in 1937, got out in 45, and re-inlisted less than a week later (explains a lot, thought it was odd that someone would go from AS to CPO in only a few years) Once I get it typed up, I'll post it.

Also spoke to a new resident down at the NW LA War Veterans Home. He was a Marine who took part in almost every amphibious operation in the South Pacific. Hopefully he'll let me interview him soon. I'm also working on getting the stories from a few others:
MoMM2/c from the USS Lexington
S1/c from the USS Bon Homme Richard
S/Sgt whose B-17 dropped the 1st bombs on occuiped Europe
More on the retired CMSgt that is a survivor of the Bataan Death March
Pvt who jumped into Ste Mere Eglise, France in the wee hours of the morning of 6 Jun 44

If anyone has a good list of questions, I'm open for suggestions
