Don't know how many of you saw the nice article in last Friday's Wall Street Journal titled "On VJ Day New Generations Remember" by Mark Yost. It mentions how the P.T. splinters are carrying on for us old P.T. vets also that that this year was the last P.T. reunion. It gives an account of the rescue of survivors of the Belgian troopship "Leopoldville" by boats from Ron 30. It also has some quotes from Vets and Splinters that were at the reunion. A very good article about PT's and the reunion..
