During the 3-1/2 years of World War 2 that started with the Japanese bombing
of Pearl Harbor in December 1941, and ended with the Surrender of Germany
and Japan in 1945, the U.S. Produced:
22 aircraft carriers,
420 destroyer escorts,
34 million tons of merchant ships,
100,000 fighter aircraft,
24,000 transport aircraft,
58,000 training aircraft,
257,000 artillery pieces,
3,000,000 machine guns,
2,500,000 military trucks.
We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services,
We invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic,
We planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific islands and invaded Europe,
Developed the atomic bomb and ultimately conquered Japan and Germany.
It's worth noting, that during the almost exact amount of time, the Obama Administration
couldn't build a functioning web site.
