When Johnny comes sailing home again, hurrah!

I've been remiss in linking to John of Arrgghhh!!!'s mission to Mexico: to help lead a mossbacked old WW2 veteran return home.

You can first read about the series of fortuitious events which led to the Imperial Armorer's departure.

If that floats your boat (or destroyer, whatever), follow up in the DD 574 USS John Rogers BAM C´┐Żitlahuac archives.

This is the kind of magnificent history I could follow all day. The bits and pieces, "fill in the cracks" details and diverse human elements which comprise all true history.
