Recently I did work on the USNS Carl Brashear it was in drydock in Portland Oregon. Brashear is the guy who Cuba Gooding played in the movie Men of Honor opposite DeNiro. Anyhow after working on the Brashear I decided to watch the movie again as I hadn't seen it in about 10 years. In the movie one of the scenes talks about DeNiro's character talks about diving on the St Lo which had been sunk by a Kamikaze during the series of engagements making up the battle of Leyte Gulf. I decided to look up the info on the St Lo and found out the St Lo was built just accross the Columbia in the Kaiser shipyard in my Hometown of Vancouver Washington. Not really game related just a story from a guy.

Also why has there been no Hollywood Blockbuster on Taffy 3?

Also this. Even though it's History Channel, it's epic to watch.
