Once a high-end waterfront suburban sort of
community, Long Beach was utterly destroyed. Houses, automobiles, boats, and
all the other things that make up a thriving town were simply swept aside by a
30' tidal surge.
This Memorial Day, remember those who were lost serving our country on the high seas in the U.S. Navy aboard PT Boats. Recently we were invited out for a ride on the only operational combat-veteran PT Boat, PT 305 in New Orleans.
See what it was like here. ▶
