I was just surfing around the web while at work and came across this story about the VMF 121's Corsair pilot Walter Brown. It is a pretty touching story about what happend to him. Read the whole thing if you get a chance. It is good stuff.

LOL, it could get ugly in here. Can you imagine what that must have felt like for Walter Brown, in his living room... at the reunion getting that piece of his old plane. I could only imagine.

It was a chemical that they used to release in the water in an attempt to keep sharks away. It probably was not very effective.
