If you were in WW II or know someone that was, the link below has Unit stories of some of the many Hospital and Medical Units that were overseas during that time. Just click the link and scroll through the Units listed. My Dad was in the 108 Evac Hospital Unit. I was able to read about his Units exploits and found his name on their roster.

                           Operation PLUTO explained - Another little known WWII operation ......
         WWII Fuel
        You may already know of this, but I sure didn't.  In spite of watching film about WWII and the European theater, I had never known the logistics of how all the military vehicles were supplied with fuel.  They sure couldn't just stop at the corner station and fill up their tanks or jeep gas tanks.  I found this film fascinating.
         And so weird to hear amazing details about D-Day so long after the event.  What a fantastically complex engineering and operational feat it was, and how remarkable the skill and effort exhibited by the young men of the early 40's who planned and made the landing successful.
