Quote of the Day : General Merrill Barber Twining

“The total vessels lost by both navies had been about the same, but we could replace ours; the Japanese could not. Our other losses were of a different character; leaders like Admirals Scott and Callaghan are not easy to replace. Their deaths remind us that admirals till die on the bridges of their flagships while generals die in bed”.
