Two other anniversaries today

Today is also the anniversary of the Charge of the Light Brigade at the Battle of Balaclava.

But the battle that always comes to mind for me is the struggle of Taffy 3 during the Battle of Leyte Gulf. What can I say, but go to ‘phibian’s place and watch the youtubes in their entirety. That’s a heck of a lot of valor in one fight…

For those of you who aren’t big history buffs, the Battle of Leyte Gulf was by  far the largest naval battle ever.
