Mauri ( Hi ) All

What is C-Span3 ?...Can we watch it here in New Zealand or Tarawa online?.
One dream come true moment was getting a chance several times chatting to Norm. Through TOTW from early days ive been here chatting adding info, pic over the years, because i grew up on Betio, during 1970s, early 1980s. I shared with norm, how my favourite  pic growing up was himself and tiny kitten. I guess over his life he was asked a thousand times, about Tarawa, and Iwo Jima, the action the violence etc. Then here is me concerned about the Kitten. He told me a couple hours latter, he returned but the kitten was gone. As a child i loved the pic. As i grew into a adult, the pic had deeper meaning. A human, caring A man giving water to another living animal, when as we all know, water was gold for sometime. A great man, a outstanding Marine, and honored to speak to him.
