PT 171- Motor Torpedo Boats













"Some time ago my brother found my grandfather's journal from WWII. It detailed several months of duty in the south pacific on board the PT-171. The PTs were small, all wood, incredibly fast ships designed to harass the Japanese navy. The men who served on these ships were braver than I could ever imagine."

This guy has done a tremendous job. This is a naval diary, scanned and with additional resources. Well worth a read.

Facial Reconstruction













"During an archaeological excavation in downtown Albany, New York, members of the Cultural Resource Survey Program, headed by Charles Fisher, Ph.D., were surprised to discover the remains of three adult skeletons in an abandoned Lutheran cemetery. Only one of these had a skull with enough bone to make a facial reconstruction possible."
