Langdell passed away on Friday at the age of 100.

With his passing, only 8 crewmen are left to tell the tale, first-hand.

"Not for self, but for country" Amazing, all of them.

I like to think when I play a wargame it is with all due respect to these men and women. The fact I have the opportunity to is certainly because of them.
