YAT-YAS

YAT-YAS 

This is my last night on the beach.  I enjoyed being here and I enjoyed being able to walk to the mock Embassy.   One of the things I walked past was the YAT-YAS building. It means “you ain’t tracks; you ain’t shit,” and this Quonset hut is a museum of tracked landing craft.

The landing craft are well armored and the tracks allow them to come some ways onto the beach.  Nevertheless, you would have to be very even to approach a hostile beach in one of this things, much less leap out when you got there.
