Remembering the USS Laffey

Its 12:17 am

    Just wanted to post this entry as a reminder of we all should always remember the heroes who fought and died for us during World War 2. I recently read about how a group of young people actually thought the Civil War was fought BEFORE World War 2!!
  Is it any wonder this country is so screwed up as a whole?

The video above is from History Channel's great (and very much missed) show "Dogfights". It is the story of the US destroyer USS Laffey (DD-724) which bore the brunt of a 50 plane kamikaze attack by the Japanese on 16 April 45.

For those who can't spare the time to watch the video,you can read the story about the brave men who served on the Laffey here on its Wikipedia page.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back with a new update soon!
