US WWII Production


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,
• 8 battleships,
• 48 cruisers,
• 349 destroyers,
• 420 destroyer escorts,
• 203 submarines,
• 34 million tons of merchant ships,
• 100,000 fighter aircraft,
• 98,000 bombers,
• 24,000 transport aircraft,
• 58,000 training aircraft,  
• 93,000 tanks,
• 257,000 artillery pieces,
• 105,000 mortars,
• 3,000,000 machine guns, and
• 2,500,000 military trucks.

We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services,
invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic,
planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and 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.

 Thanks Dan !

  1. ObamaCare is a tax.

    No matter what a press secretary or a pimped out newsie says, that's the bottom line.

  2. Obama taxes us. Forces participation in a program that does not function. Destroys private insurance. People are walking away from hospitals without care because of HIM and HIS FRAUD. He is literally killing us while he basks on the beach.

    The definition of tyrant.

  3. The worst president in my lifetime and I've been around for quite some time. He's topped Jimmy Carter and I prayed no one would be as bad as him.

    Have a fabulous day Odie. ☺

  6. It's like watching the "March of the Lemmings" to the sea. Obuma and his ilk refuse to support REAL MEN.

  7. Ya gotta love it when Obama - from his taxpayer paid vacation in Hawaii - condemned the Republican party for taking a vacation.

  8. The is little difference between Obama and Putin:
    Both are control freaks.
    Both are communist, although only one would admit it.
    Both are narcissistic.
    That said, one is a man's man while the other is a wimp and pussy.

  10. The Obama administration is shameful on so many levels. The nonfunctioning website is the least of the problems, just wait until the horror stories with Obamacare start.

  16. Admiral, I'll bet he didn't think so at the time.

  17. Teresa, liberal "Fairness" is bringing everyone down to the lowest common denominator, not raising the lowest upward.
