    At dawn on 20 November 1943, U.S. marines launched an assault on Tarawa, a Japanese-held atoll in the British Protectorate of the Gilbert and Ellice Islands. The water in the lagoon was only 3 feet deep that morning, less than the 4–5 feet required by a fully loaded personnel carrier to navigate the waters. As a result, marines saddled with equipment were forced to wade almost a mile across the lagoon under heavy Japanese fire.
    Well Gents this is what I want to do. Here's what I have so far. the water is a pain in the neck to simulate

    In 1968 is was in a bar in La Jolla CA sitting next to two older gentlemen.
    As I listened to their conversation I realized I was sitting next to history - both of them were vets of this landing and one was a Korean War vet as well - a retired USMC SGM.
