I caught a piece on the 6:30 ABC world new tonight. A veterean of the Tarawa Campaign went back to see the island where he fought. What he saw was dump. He was disgusted and could not believe his eyes. He's now pushing members of the US government to help out in the clean up of this "hallowed" ground where US Marines and Japanese soldiers fought and died. They did show some of the many piles of rubish dumped by the waters edge waiting for the tide to comes in and flush the toilet so to speak. I post this because several board members was planning a trip there.
