Battle of Midway Movie

Was I the only who noticed at the end of the new great movie there was a note.  "Battle of the Philippine Sea"  coming soon.  There have been several movies made about Midway. All are good.  However, I have seen several documentaries on the Battle of the Philippine Sea but not a movie yet that I'm aware of.  

It should be really good too.

"Battle of the Philippine Sea"  --  Now there's a movie I want to see!  Largest carrier battle in history, and lost some 'family' blood in that one.  Hard to believe, that battle was 75 years ago!

The number of people who are knowledgeable about the war in the Pacific is getting smaller everyday.  Yet, throwing today's stars into new/remade war flicks is a good way to remind today's young of the sacrifices made only two or three generations ago.

I have no interest at all with Bigfoot, but I won't argue with the US Navy pilots who have close encounters with UFO's.

 

Good luck with whatever you choose to believe in. I for one need proof. :no:

Buy some Bar vodka. That's only 50. It's been my choice of poison for about 6 yrs now. :shooter:

Everclear is 190 proof!

It’s more than enough proof for me :cheersty:7CF6C522-4E20-4598-AAD9-D68BC1622C49.jpeg

190!  And I thought Bunderberg OP rum at 57.7% by volume was strong...

Alcohol by Volume and Alcohol proof are different. USA uses Alcohol proof.  for Example  .. Whisky in the UK would be 40% ABV and in the USA 80% proof. Same strength.

Yes I know jimeve, Bunderberg OP is 115.2 proof (just have to double, but the maker quotes by volume so that’s I used in my post).

But 190?  Honestly never came across anything close to that...

If that's not strong enough, Everclear is also available in a 194 proof/97% ABV version in Rhode Island and Texas.
