    But since Howie is barely in, we gotta post something..


    Found this interesting.. you might too.

    The Navy has released online the "gray book" of Admiral Nimitz... It is a record of all his correspondence from Dec 7, 1941 until the end of WWII. He was the highest naval officer at the time... there is fascinating stuff in it. For example..


    "SECNAV TO ALNAV EXECUTE WP FORTY SIX AGAINST JAPAN"

    *The teletype to all naval bases and units from the Secretary of War telling them to execute war plan 46 against Japan.

    another is,

    EXECUTE FULL AND UNRESTRICTED AIR AND SUBMARINE WAR AGAINST JAPAN, INFORM THE ARMY,THE BRITISH AND THE DUTCH"

    There are also commuications from Nimitz, the Commander in the Pacific reporting the damage at Pearl Harbor, issuing orders for boats to "scatter" and lamenting that Midway Island can not be held.... These commuications were all recorded by the Chief of Staff to Nimitz.. they were declassified in 1972, but only put online tonight.
