Folks, just wanted to let you know that this evening, Wednesday Aug 22nd Turner Classic Movies is airing (I think 5.30pm EST) "The Gallant
Hours"  a brilliant war movie without any war scenes! James Cagney plays Admiral Bull Halsey who saved our bcon by defeating the Japs in the Pacific.  Watch out for Richard Carlyle who plays Chaplain Fred Gehring-formerly Pastor at St Vincent De Paul on Price Street as "The
Padre of Guadalcanal". I knew him and had the pleasure to serve on the Guided Missile Frigate USS Halsey DLG 23 during the Vietnam War. The film is well worth a look.
