So the Washoe County LST1165 Participated in the Atlantic Fleet and the Pacific Fleet and this was all before Vietnam or Japan
Unlike any other ship in the U.S. Navy,
LST's did it all.
They shelled the enemy positions like the main combat ships.
They put combat forces with heavy combat equipment and men right in the face of the enemy.
They hauled cargo to support our troops.
They acted as "Mother Ships" to the smaller combat craft in "Brown Water Navy" operations and became "Aircraft Carriers" with "choppers" landing and taking off on the main deck.

This is a tremendous tribute
to our military today!
I give it 5 stars!
If you never watch another thing about our current fighting men and women in harm's way, you have to watch this all the way through, especially the latter part.
It is 5 Minutes long.
This is another very good tribute
to our military today and past.
Go here and hang on to your hat:
