va. beach - not to far from one of my old haunts at the USCG base at yorktown, spent 3 months there in the fall of '68 on a couple of training courses after i got commissioned. went to NOLA for 3 yrs after that. drove thru the battle field at least twice a day as we (me & wife #1) lived off base. very eerie on foggy mornings. i've crawled all over the fortifications & been thru the other exhibits there too. much more impressive than the similar field in metarie, la. where gen. packenham got his self ventilated & stuffed in a brandy casket in 1815.
