Packed with just Tylerís stuff.

 

 

Packed with all the stuff on the way down.

 

 

US Propaganda leaflets dispersed to the Japanese, this was at the Sullivan Brothers Museum in Waterloo, IA. Basically itís saying the time is up for invasion of Japanís home islands themselves with all the previously accomplished stepping stones along the way laid out. I had never seen this before.

 

 

USS Kidd museum. These are the battle medals of Adm Kidd who died aboard the Arizona during the attack on Pearl Harbor. The Medal of Honor and Purple Heart among others. The USS Kidd was named after him.
