    off top of my head (feel free to add any details):
    almost exactly three quarters of century ago, in the morning of June 4, 1942, in the area off Midway, two squadrons, under the command of McClusky, of dive bombers off the USS Enterprise were able to find, while low on fuel, the Japanese battle group and wreak havoc on it;
    on the way back, many aircraft ran out of fuel, and their crews were never seen again

    just wanted to briefly commemorate these particular events here

    now I happened to notice (dated October 7)
    US returns WWII battleship flag to Japan https://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/20171007_14/
    I took interest in this story because, according to me, the Nagato was the best battleship of WWOne era (of course I know she was launched only after WWOne had ended)
