We were pleased to see Rich comment earlier today on an older post. Rich is connected to the National Museum of the Pacific War in Fredricksburg, Texas.

Why the heck does a small town in central Texas host the museum? Well, probably no other man is as associated with World War II in the Pacific as Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz. And Fredricksburg is his home town.

And today, by the way, is Nimitz’ birthday.

  1. Actually a good museum with a Japanese Mini Sub as one of many things to see. Mostly settled by Germans (Fredericksburg), there are many places to eat good German food and drink ice cold beer. Good place to visit preferably during the off season.
