Love this pic. These are LST's (Landing Ship, Tank) on the beach in Normandy.
My dad was on LST272 in the Pacific at the end of the war, though i think he missed all the real action. He was 17 years old at the time. Sailors said LST stood for Long Slow Target, as they were designed to ride high on the water and had a top speed of 8 knots.
I have that "Nature is Amazing" Twitter bookmarked and look at it almost daily.
Last week it went down due to some Twitter guidelines or whatever the message was. I don't know what the problem was. I googled the twitter name yet found no links/comments about the downtime.
Anyway, it is back up. Thank you God.
