The Invasion of the Horseshoe Crabs
Last Sunday's Blog had a "gossip" column from the front page of the September 6, 1917 edition of the Tuckerton Beacon. It basically reported on the "comings and goings" of the mostly out of town military men assigned to guard the Tuckerton Radio Station and Tower during World War I.
Shortly after the gossip column appeared, I got the following email from Dave Kalm down in sunny Florida. Seems that it awoke a long forgotten memory regarding the radio tower in the World War II era. It appears that the tower was still being guarded by "out of towners". How do I know that? Well, the conclusion of Dave's story seems to clearly indicate that fact.
I'm thankful that Dave choose to share the radio tower story with us, as his email sure hit my funny bone. I even had to chuckle out loud. Hope that you find it amusing, also.
