I had not seen those before.
You in the area in July 1945, hope you don't have the lung problem.
A close friend of mine in the USAF back when they started testing the 'bomb' again in Nevada, volunteered to be one of the 100's to 'observe' the explosions from a certain distance in the 1951 tests. When he returned to our base a few months later, he described the explosions and everything that happened. I lost track of him, read a few years ago, that practically all those that participated in those test came down with cancer/lung problems attributed to the bomb.
July 16, 1945
I was in this area at that time but must admit that
I have little recall of events. Guess partly
because it was before TV and 24 hour news.
A little chronology of that event:
Preping for the test.
July 16, 0530 plus 2 seconds.
July 16, 0530 plus 6 seconds.
July 16, 0530 plus 15 seconds.
A few days later....
