WELCOME TO SQUADRON NINE

 


This site is dedicated to a group of eight "Landing Ship Tanks" called landing ship Squadron Nine and the proud officers and crewmen who served aboard them with great fortitude and pride. These ships are no longer a part of the U. S. Navy and it's landing forces, but they will not be forgotten in the hearts and minds of the men they served well.

 



   



 

Welcome To Home Port

For Landing Ship Tanks

SQUADRON 9


Unlike any Other Ship in the U. S. Navy, LST'S did it

all. LST was the military designation for naval vessels

created during World War II to support amphibious

operations, by carrying significant quantities of

vehicles, cargo, and landing troops directly onto and

unimproved shore.

This is a tremendous tribute to our military today! 

 I give it 5 stars! If you never watch another thing

about our current fighting men and women in

harm's way, you have to watch this all the way

through, especially the latter part. Semper Fi

MEMORIAL DAY

 

This is the day that we will honor the men and women who have served this country

and made the ultimate sacrifice in their duty.

 

These sacrifices have been made from Bunker Hill to Bull Run, San Juan Hill, and

Belleau Wood;

from Guadalcanal to Bastogne, the Chosin Reservoir, and Saigon;

from Kosovo to Baghdad, and Kandahar Province.

 

On Memorial Day, remember those men and women who have laid down their lives for ]

our nation.

They are the heroes among us still.
