    marksbug and bruce.desertrat cut ahead in joke queue.
    So I took the high road and looked at history. Mountains of content for Allied effort [340,000 troops] to capture from defending Imperial forces of 500,000. Operative laundry ~13 months after amphibious landings. Among, if not toughest campaign in Pacific Theater, ‎23 January 1942 – August 1945

    no job was eazy there, no job was unimportant,they did what was needed and told to do. some pulled their weight some pulled more.some were under qualified some were over qualified. sorry for jumping ahead, but my laundry was almost done and I didn't want any wrinkles from my wife....
