Marcio,

   What book are you reading?  I read a book written by the Commanding Officer of the Aaron Ward but can't remember it's title.

    Have you visited this site?

    Going to war back then was different.  There was no instant return by airplane and the length of a tour could be years.  Today troops and sailors go off for a shorter period of time.  In World War II there were soldiers and sailors who left home and didn't come back for four or five years.  If they were lucky enough to be transferred from point A to point B and had a chance to pass through their hometown it was considered a lucky experience.
