    Happy Birthday, Ira! That's where my dad was. On a ship, the USS Gosper APA-170. It was a liberty ship that was fitted to transport troops, haul cargo, and then was used as a hospital ship. They did shoot down a suicide plane during that mess. They had landing craft and dad drove one of those. After the war they brought prisoners of war back.

    For some reason, 75 hit me harder that 40, 65 or even 70. Three-quarters of a century just sounds really old!

    The seat cushions should require screws and washers that mount the seat cushion to the frame. Para cord would be a good alternative to lace the covers onto the frame.

    The steering wheel should be the same size as the M38 and the other Civilian Jeeps. The A1 wheel is green instead of black.
