    Little Known History

 When the U.S. was getting ready to drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima a little known fact was missed by historians.
Everyone agreed it should be done but one final hurdle had to be cleared.
You see it was to be dropped on my birthday, and the white house didn't want to screw upmy birthday party. They called mpom and asked if would be OK, and mom gave them the go ahead saying if it brought the troops home quicker by all means.
And while the news did overshadow my party it was OK mom had done her part.
Now you know the rest of the story.LOL

 When I first started working for the USN in Philly in the early 60s, one of the guys I car pooled with was a Marine during WWII and was on Tinian Island and his unit was guarding those two bombs. And, some of the older fellows that were equipment operators in our steam test lab told me about making heavy water during the 1940s.
