Its hard to believe my thread "This day in the war in the Pacific" is coming to a close. Still ten days left till surrender, but I think its time to recognize my endeavor is nearly complete.
When I first started this thread over three and a half years ago, (first post Dec 9th 2006) I would never have guessed this would continue uninterrupted. Well, here we are 1436 posts later.
I myself have truly enjoyed doing this thread. I've always had an interest in the war in the Pacific, and this was a labor of love. If anything, I've gotten an appreciation on the vastness of the war in this part of the world and how so many elements came into play. I myself learned of many events I had never heard of. If anything, I now understand why the allies won. It wasn't just the quality of the weapons and the skill and valor of the troops. It was the unsung officers (of all the branches) who planned the logistics and kept the war machine humming.
I would like to thank all of you who enjoyed this thread. It was a pleasure to serve you.
