Note to the Fighting Fusileers!

spiritsmall.jpg

Since it's not clear (based on emails I'm getting from smart but confused people) let me try again to make it clear.

Noonish or so central time, I'll send out an email with the donate button graphic and the url that links to the Fighting Fusileer cashier at Spirit of America.

The battle opens at one minute past midnight tonight. I'll figure out which time zone at lunch when I send out the implementation email.

I waited this long because a, there were technical glitches that SoA had to fix, and b, I didn't want anyone jumping LD!

Final frago goes out noonish.

LD at 0001hrs.

Update: The opord has been published. If you haven't gotten a copy, send me a note. If you think you've signed up and you aren't on the Spirit of America blogroll, drop me a note. If ya've been waiting, and want to sign up - drop me a note!

From the Coasties at Brainshavings we get this:

Steal away Fusileers - but give credit where it's due!

That's midnight plus one minute for you Air Force types.

Your Canadian Pesh Murga stand ready!

Count me in, out here in The Country™

From the context of your post, I presume the cryptic "LD at 0001hrs" means 'H-Hour is 0001hrs', with LD an inexplicable substitution for "Start Line".

Cheers

Hurry up and wait!

LP/OPs waiting for passthrough.

Recon has been out for days! Time for those last minute leader checks, people.

I see my 'sniper' is practicing 'own goals'!

Air-cooled Lewis guns on ringmounts on the front of landing craft? Is that historically accurate?

John of Argghhh! briefed on April 20, 2004 01:05 PM

For the early days of the war, it is.

(I should caveat this - at least in training, if perhaps not in combat as depicted here).

Little known fact about the amphibious landings - an awful lot of the landing craft were manned by the Coast Guard!

Waiting for the email.

That gent in the foreground is Douglas Munro, who is the only Coastie to ever earn the Medal of Honor. He did it the hard way off Guadalcanal in 1942, leading the rescue of three companies of Chesty Puller's 7th Marines who were in danger of being overrun.

Aaron's Rantblog briefed on April 21, 2004 04:30 AM

I'm in. What do I do next?

Da Goddess briefed on April 21, 2004 05:17 AM

As ordered by Lt. Smash, I'm in.
