• Pardon the dust while the boys rebuild the site.

    The board will be in a state of disarray as I get things sorted out, for a little while at least.

    The new incarnation is using Xenforo as the system software. It is much like what we are used to, with a few differences. I will see about making a FAQ to help point out the differences for the members.


    One IMPORTANT difference for all of us old timers is that the 'mail' system is replaced with what are called 'conversations'/

    There is no 'Inbox' or 'Out box' or 'Sent' folders anymore.

    Think of Conversations as private 'threads' or topics that don't exist in a forum, that you start with another member. NOTE: Conversations can include more than one member if you or someone else in the conversaion, likes.
    Takes a little getting used to but I am sure you all can get a hang of it.


    Only a slightly modified default default Xenforo style is available for now. Once the new SAG style is ready it will be available.

    All existing users should be able to login with their usernames and passwords once the site goes up.


    If anyone has difficulties logging in please contact me at sixthvanguard@gmail.com.


    Thank you for your support and patience. I know it has been a loooong road.

As i was waking up on the morning of Dec. 7, 1941, the "men to stations" alarm was going off. The first thing i thought was that it was a drill. When only three of the eight men manning, I knew something was wrong. As we looked up, the sky was full of Jap airplanes. "Holy !&@% ", said the gunner. About five seconds later, me and the other two men were firing everything at the planes, knowing that this was an attack. As we ran low on ammo, I ran back to get more, my buddy shouldered the Thompson and started firing. That was the beginning of a long, sad day.











Historical note: The ammo with the Bofors twin AA gun was in 3-4 round
clips. The main reason that my dio has 2 round clips is because the
shell used could only be held my 1/6 figs 2 at a time.
