...I'm a U.S. Navy LCAC Craftmaster! Such a cool piece of equipment with such an important job. Don't get me wrong, I'm proud of my time in the Army and with the Airborne, but I've gotta give credit where it's due. This is a freaking cool job!
A ' VERY DRAMATIC ' photo from World War Two showing a landing craft gun (medium) (almost certainly LCG (M) 101) crew fighting to save their shell ridden and sinking craft during the landing by Royal Marine commandos on the island of Walcheren at Westkape. Note how everybody is engaged in the effort with no signs of panic when the boat is almost under.
Popped Bubble Art: I've done this activity with my kids a few times now and it never fails to fascinate them - and me! Simply color bubble mix with food coloring and blow bubbles onto paper - as the bubbles land and pop, they create beautiful works of art. It goes without saying that this project is best done outdoors. A great one for those lazy summer afternoons.
