I can't beleive you just posted that Ken.
I was just going to.
Here we go again with me and you reading each others minds.

Here in Rhode Island this was the topic of Radio and TV for the last few days. There are some very proud Americans around here all set for tonight due to the fact of what was done here for this to be pulled off.

The rubber decoys were made by the U.S. Rubber Company in Woonsocket, Rhode Island.

There are still many Women alive today that were telling the stories and showing the pictures.

They are so proud of what they did in the factory for the War effort while the Boyfriends and Husbands were off to war.

God Bless them all...

Great Post and a little known fact.

Great Minds think alike ??????
Ameriken and Rocky.

Has a better ring to it than Barack and MooseSchell..

I watched it...wasn't that bad of a program.
Much of what was shown was actual footage
that had been released one time or another .

What was interesting was the interviews from
people that served in the unit..
