WWII Armada

A View the 1945 Naval Armada Set to Invade Japan, Awesome !!!!
If you have any interest  in WWII info, you may find this very interesting.  
Here comes another surprise.. It was 1944  and the pictures were not available during the war.
The US kept this place  unknown to the citizens of the US.
This is quite a  story!!
This is phenomenal 
…! An Armada of ships  and airplanes poised for the invasion of Japan…that never happened…because  President Truman authorized the dropping of “A” bombs at Nagasaki and Hiroshima  that resulted in the Japanese surrender. Just think of the American lives that  would have been lost had this invasion occurred. Be thankful that we had a  President with the courage to make the call. Sadly most Americans today know  nothing about this and the sacrifices made by those before us. We are not  teaching US history in our schools anymore….
Some  great pictures of the Ulithi armada! US Naval armada deployed for invasion of  Japan.   Keep  this for posterity.  There will never be another assemblage of naval ships  like this again.
Staging  area for the invasion of Japan. Check out the carriers on “Murderer’s  Row.” 
If any of you folks had  fathers, grandfathers or uncles in the Navy during World War II, they may well  have been involved in this operation, given the tremendous number of the ships  and   personnel  involved.
You may also recognize them in some  of the photos.  Click below:
