I was on the Tarawa for Desert Storm as part of the famous amphibious landing that didn't happen. No one told us and we loaded onto LCU's and we headed for the beach. Right as it looked like we were going to land we turned around and headed back to the ship. That was one of the worst and best moments of my life at the same time.

I hope to see a lot of other Marines around the forums.

I'll be there. If the good Lord willing, I will be bringing our Guest of Honor, a survivor of the Battle of Tarawa. There is info posted on him on another thread here on the forum.
