21. Thank you.
I wish I had more stuff of my dad's. He was on Guadalcanal, 1st Marine Division.

Which always reminds me of my mom. She was working at some defense contractor as her wartime contribution (wish I knew which one), and often mentioned the obstructive politics there, even during the "good war." One particularly bad day she told them that they could run a three-ring circus if they wanted to, but her husband was on Guadalcanal and she was quitting.
