Here is something interesting that I didn’t know about. Operation Crossroads is called America’s secret plan to nuke Japan’s Fleet. Japan’s fleet at this time was located at what the article calls the “atoll” of Chuuk. At least they got the name right. Interesting to think what would have happened if this did happen. This could have seriously changed the course of Chuuk’s destiny. Micronesia’s what if?
We all know Peace Corps Volunteers have been helping out Micronesia since the 60’s and probably even know a few who stayed on. Well, they continue to help Micronesia out and I’m happy to hear about private scholarships offered to Micronesians by Habele. If you haven’t heard of them, click here to learn more about these guys. This is exactly what our kids need, more access to opportunity.
So what’s going on in the FSM Government? Well, if you check their website, nothing much since 12 June 17. I’m not complaining. I know how busy we can get and maintaining a website is not as fun as social media. But, there is a Facebook site that was last updated in December 2015. Again, I know there are other priorities, so I’m not complaining.
On a side note, H.E. Peter M Christian was in Fiji earlier this month attending The world climate leaders’ summit you didn’t hear about, so it’s always great to hear that our President is out there representing the FSM well. Thanks Mr President.
