This is the third in a lecture series I have been working on this year. The first lecture in January was on the "Japanese Strategic War Objectives." The February lecture was on the "First 24-Hours of the War." The March lecture is on the "Fall of the American Outposts: Guam and Wake." The emphasis will be on the fall of Wake. As I put on the finishing touches this week I estimate that it will be less than an hour in length. There are no sound effects this time. I have come to the realization that, although they sound nice on my computer, they do not come across the Internet very well and can be somewhat of a distraction, and add to the total length of the lecture.  

As in the first two lectures, because there is so much information, I have pre-recorded the lecture and will simply share my computer with you on Gotomeeting.com and let you listen. Accordingly, I will take questions or comments until the lecture is over and then will be more than happy to discuss this important battle further.  
I have sent out a wide distribution to many of my friends and to those who have expressed an interest in the lecture. As such, there may be some who are not interested. That is okay. I will not be offended it you do not attend.  
***To those of you who are scheduled to go to Guadalcanal with me in August: I still plan to present four lectures on the battles of Guadalcanal/Tulagi/naval battles of Guadalcanal sometime yet this year. I am also putting together a "virtual" tour of Okinawa, Tarawa, Wake, the Philippines, Saipan/Tinian, and Peleliu sometime yet this year. I am making these on the fly and they take a lot of time so...we will see how it goes.***

​​​It’s a new year. . . and this is an important 2021 dues reminder! 
For future planning purposes, the board would like to make the dues-paying process as easy and painless as possible. Dues are due on January 1 each year. A dues reminder is sent in December. Dues received after February 1, 2021 may incur a late fee of $10.00. Those not paying their dues within a reasonable amount of time (March 1), will be automatically dropped from membership. Membership reinstatement is possible upon payment of dues (and late fee if applicable).
