Guadalcanal…

sketch of a weary warrior…

“General Vandegrift sent a message to all men under his command in the Guadalcanal area thanking them for their courage and steadfastness. He reminded them all that their “unbelievable achievements had made ‘Guadalcanal’ a synonym for death and disaster in the language of our enemy.”

“Too Many, Too Close, Too Long,” ……   “little guys, just plain worn out… stamina and spirit stretched beyond human endurance. He has had no real sleep for a long time … And he probably hasn’t stopped ducking and fighting long enough to discover that he has malaria. He is going to discover it now, however.”

Thank you, thank you guys for all you did….
