How long should you wait before checking email inbox for a turn? In other words, at what point does it become desperate?



So this 16 year old guy comes in a few days ago with his mom for a routine check-up. Long time patient. Big kid, looks like a 25 year old. Socially sophisticated, smart, confident. Going places for sure. He announces that he has a new baby and is living with "his lady"

I congratulate him on the birth of the healthy baby...what else can you do? At least he is still in school. Then he asks for help on a "primary nocturnal enuresis" problem. <facepalm>

Kaga just showed up on the sunk list. Most likely somebody had too much espresso. Kongo I can believe.

Hmmm ..this sounds like a marketing opportunity ... Medicaid pays for well baby check ups . and although my game is Geriatrics ..last time I checked Ped's recommends 8 regular well-baby check up between 1 month - 24 months ... You missing a patient teaching opportunity [even the mother might qualify as a Ped's Pt .. but I would refer all the OB-Gyn stuff .. ]

Recently, I had a 17 year old long time patient make a "Well Child" appointment for herself AND her new twins on the same day. Amazingly efficient really. I threw out the twins dad out of the room durning her exam. Seemed kinda silly but probably the proper thing to do.

Against all odds those two young parents are taking fanastic care of the twins. Quite an amazing thing to see. Of course, they still face obstacles, and the grandmothe's are helping but they have passed the 6 month mark when those kind of arangements usually blow up. They are at least doing as well as the adult couples in my neighborhood. I hope they don't try to put in an outdoor Bar-B-Q

Have you thought about occupying "Beizelbob" and Peleliu so you can move stuff a little more Eastward?

The most dangerous job in the US Navy in WWII(c) is:


1) TBD crewman

2) Minesweeper crew, assigned to intercept incoming Jap battleships

3) Assignment to a Sea Bee Bn.




You can almost hear the zeroes and ones chatting inside the PC and heckling each other over who got assigned to each unit. Guess the most boring digital job would be being assigned to some off-map fortress.

See the Okinawa discussion above. I'm pretty sure those anchor, plane, and square symbols at Babeldaob mean it would be hard.

That being said, a little cleanup of the rear areas wouldn't hurt. One counterinvasion in the wrong place could cut off the beer supplies to Jolo.

They tried that already and lost a good part of a division in the process.

You should know that when in the armed forces boring is good. It's when it gets exciting that you can get hurt.

Exactly! Phuket, Phuket it all!

Besides, the sneak attacks are fun!

There are 9500 extremely motivated crazy SOB's on Beazelbob with 68 guns and 40 Ronsons. The concrete for 40 miniature golf courses has been diverted there to make bunkers and there is an underground Emperor Brand Kool-Aide tank. Peleliu is an atoll. We are just geting our first APA's and LST's and have no LCI's in theater yet. Beazelbob would probably take a 50-turn prepped reinforced division, with artillery support, engineers and tanks, plus naval bombardment and carrier support. We could absolutely take it but it would divert resources from the bigger prize. Already the PI defenses are stiffening.

I am getting ready to tamp down the airfields at Beazelbob and Flores which have been attacking the body of the squid.

I do not see any AAR's by Col Mustard nor any games in progress. I am not sure being demeaning is in your best interest

But IMHO the big difference between Peleliu and say Okie or Tokyo is the ability to apply the USA/USN airpower coming over the next 6 months. Peleliu is an atoll and requires supply convoys to keep supply. The USN torps are getting to be effective. So a combination of submarines, airpower, and naval bombardment can reduce Peleliu to an invadable target about 25% reduction in firepower and AV and the USN/USA can bring in 2X the firepower and AV. Tokyo and Okie are a lot harder to isolate in kind. Please see the picture below.

There is a problem in that this will deviate from the Northern push into Manilla. So the resources might be already pegged for that operation. Anyway Cap it might be worth the investment if the IJ get more comitted to cutting the supply lines in teh middle of the squid. If this game lasts to Jan 1944 you might need the space to avoid the Kami attacks.

The biggest annoyance coming from Beazelbob so far has been small surface raids, a CL and a couple of DD's or now just single DD's. I think most of the rear area Betty attacks came from Flores.

Beazelbob is indeed an obvious target. JJ started reinforcing there even before the PI. 37th ID just reunited at Manado and is almost done sanitizing the area. Perhaps they could prep for Beazelbob. Beazelbob is indeed already within range of our heavies from Sorong.

I had two thoughts Cap, one is that the IJ continue to invest too much into PI and for the Allies to take down Beazelbob in the meantime. Mainly because it can be isolated and PI is going to get more difficult I suspect to isolate. As I demonstrated in the picture I took down 'Beazelbob' with airpower and submarines with some BB TF's reducing supply to zero. Then landedin December 43. It did clear the way for supplies to move into South PI.

But you are probably right that continued attirtion moving into Northern PI under 4E cover might just be the ticket.
