Opinionator: NY Times: The Disunion: Unconditional Surrender

My grandfather, a US Merchant Mariner, served on the USS General Buckner, a P2 troop carrier. The ship was cut in half in NJ and lengthened to take a full complement of US Marines. Buckner Bay was the first US occupation of Japan. A training area at West Point Military Academy is also named after him I saw on an archeology survey after Hurricane Floyd hit, toppling trees. He used to joke they ran out of admirals’ names and had to start naming them after generals. NY Times link
