Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Dad did logistics planning in WW2. Would not talk about it much. Best I could gather got dropped off on S. Pacific island with another grunt ( he was master sarg. at the time). Scouted, radioed and then got picked up when Allied forces liberated the island. Said he saw the Japanese do horrific things to the native islanders. Ended up hating them more then the Germans although he saw some of their horrors working for Wild Bill after the war. I got to know first generation here - much remorse, nice people - can't generalize.
