August 6, 1945 the A-Bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. Then 3 days later on Nagasaki to end WWII

1945 Naval Armada

This enormous naval facility was a well kept secret in the U.S. until very close to the conclusion of WW II in the Pacific.  The Japanese were, uncomfortably,  well aware of this base. Admiral Yamamoto, architect of the attack on Pearl Harbor, has been quoted as saying, before his own death, that it appeared, that Japan had  awakened  a sleeping giant. From these photos, it appears that the Admiral ’s observation was correct.

The great 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, resulting 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, today, most Americans know little or nothing about this and the sacrifices made by those who bore that burden. It is not in the US history taught in our schools anymore… So keep this for posterity. There will never be another assemblage of naval ships like this again.
