    Thanks for this post. Finally some pictures of the typhoon my uncle wrote home about during the war. He was the XO on a US Navy tanker that broke in half during that storm. He spent 5 days in a life boat with 30 foot waves before the storm blew over and was picked up by a Navy destroyer. The most powerful Navy on the planet and was hammered by mother nature.

    Holy cow! Great pics IF, I'm enjoying them as well. I love to read and look at pictures of history and am thankful that I didn't have to experience most of that first hand. We have it pretty dang good around our country these days thanks the heroes of our country's past (and present.)
