Over the course of 2014, the organization assisted with 17 special aliyah flights from North America, bringing 296 families with 813 children under the age of 18 and 1,703 singles. These olim ranged in age from three weeks to 98 years old, mostly from New York, New Jersey, Florida, California, Illinois, Maryland and Pennsylvania, as well as from Quebec and Ontario, Canada. British Aliyah displayed an increase of its own with 525 British Olim in 2014, including 49 families, 97 children and 183 singles, most of them from London and Manchester. In addition, 2014 saw a 10% increase in lone soldiers who make aliyah without immediate family, who joined some 3,000 lone soldiers already serving in the IDF.

Time for another movie quiz: Who is this performer? Born in 1920 to Russian-Jewish immigrants, he first started acting in Jewish sleepaway camps Saturday play night. He served in WWII in the Air Force in the same group as James Stewart. He became interesting in acting and began study in New York. He began appearing in plays and started a long run of TV and film appearances, being beaten up by Elvis in 1958's King Creole, opposite Andy Griffith in A Face in the Crowd and Audrey Hepburn in Charade. Few of these were comedies until he landed his most famous role in a Neil Simon comedy..so identified with the role that if I told you the title you would instantly know him. While he appeared later in life opposite Sophia Loren, Ann Margret, Barbra Streisand and many more, his most famous co-star was an Oscar-winning actor in which they appeared in 10 movies together. His last movie was 2000, directed by Diane Keaton.
13 years ago today, I was four years out of the Air Force. My family and I lived in Baltimore, where I worked on the Hubble Space Telescope project at Johns Hopkins University. It was about as peaceful a job as one could have. We explored space and inspired kids. And then a hijacked airplane struck the World Trade Center in New York, and then another, and another hijacked airplane struck the Pentagon, and another crashed in Pennsylvania, and the whole world changed.

OPEN LETTER TO MY PARENTS... Karen McCutcheon & Cliff Mccutcheon With my 55th birthday fast approaching... (UGH) I just wanted to show my deepest gratitude to my two wonderful parents: I have many things to be proud of, being your daughter. You gave me my strong sense of independence (and a strong temper to go with it!), you helped cultivate my talents, my abilities, and even my inabilities! You taught me right from wrong, smart from stupid, and funny from serious. But most of all... With both of you being born and raised in the Lone Star State, you went to extra lengths to ensure your first born was also a Texan. And at the time, you didn't even realize it, but you made me an EIGHTH GENERATION TEXAN! But not everyone knows the story, so please allow me... You see, when my Mom was pregnant with me way back in 1959, she and my dad were living in (of all places) New York, while Dad was stationed there in the Air Force. My Dad came to the conclusion that he was NOT going to have his first-born child be a ...
Donald Byrd Obituary DOVER, Delaware (AP) - Jazz musician Donald Byrd, a leading hard-bop trumpeter of the 1950s who collaborated on dozens of albums with top artists of his time and later enjoyed commercial success with hit jazz-funk fusion records such as "Black Byrd," has died. He was 80. He died Feb. 4 in Delaware, according to Haley Funeral Directors in a Detroit suburb, which is handling arrangements. It didn't have details on his death. Byrd, who was also a pioneer in jazz education, attended Cass Technical High School in Detroit, played in military bands in the Air Force and moved to New York in 1955. The trumpeter, whose given name was Donaldson Toussaint L'Ouverture Byrd II, rose to prominence when he joined Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers later that year, filling the seat in the bebop group held by his idol Clifford Brown. He soon became one of the most in-demand trumpeters on the New York scene, playing with Max Roach, Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane and T helonious Monk. He also began his recording ...

Wow! Sixty six years ago today (Dec.31st,1947) I was sworn into the Air Force in New York City. This little old farm boy from the Catskill Mountains of New York learned real fast what life was all about. Would give anything to go back and start it all over again. A few things I would change but most things would remain the same. You can't go back but it doesn't hurt to dream. Happy New Year to all my family, relatives, and friends. Love you all

He will surely be missed by all. What a glorious life he had: Anthony T. Oropollo, M.D., of Montclair, N.J., passed away on Monday, Dec. 16, 2013, in Mountainside Hospital. He was 88 years old.

Rather than sending him home, he then served in the Air Force in Alconbury, England, under Colonel Jimmy Stewart.

Sedona's Best Fine Art Destination Gallery: Check out this Amaaazing artist! "The Woman of Paris" series... Artist: Ted CoConis Ted was awarded a scholarship to the Art Institute of Chicago during his grade school years, but instead of working toward academic success, he abandoned his formal education, added a few years to his age and trained as a pilot with the US Air Force near the end of World War II. He was honorably discharged a year later when they found out he was underage, so he joined the Merchant Marines and ended up in Russian-occupied Romania. By the time he got back, Chicago seemed pretty tame, so he headed off to Las Vegas and then Los Angeles, finally ending up in San Francisco, where he landed his first freelance commission as an illustrator. It wasn't long before a major art studio in New York recognized his talent, so he heeded the call and quickly established himself as one of this country's preeminent illustrators of books, magazines and movie posters. Ted's paintings have appeared in ...

Being an Air Force child, I went to 9 schools from kindergarten through twelfth grade. 4. I have lived in New York, California, South Carolina, Virginia, and England. 5.

Ok Emily Walsh - I'm only doing this because you asked...here are my 10 things: 1. I was born in North Tonawanda, New York (halfway between Buffalo and Niagara Falls on the Niagara River). Moved to Marietta, Ohio in 1967; when I was 4 ½ years old. I consider Marietta my hometown. 2. Your mom, Darlene Fluharty Walsh, and I got to know each other the summer before our senior year at Salem College while we were “historical interpreters” at Fort New Salem (think tiny Williamsburg). Mom was an Herb Gardener & Cornstalk Dollmaker; I was a Blacksmith. Our first date was a few months later at Homecoming 1985. We’ve been dating ever since! 3. I was an Officer in the US Air Force for nine years. My first USAF job was as a Minuteman III Missile Launch Officer – one of those guys who goes sub-terranean and holds the keys to kingdom come. As a result of that tour of duty, I have spent more time under the state of Nebraska than I have on the surface of it. I actually really loved that job. 4. Ever si ...
more pieces of a multimillion-dollar, New York-based military drone that crashed into Lake Ontario during a training flight this week. Maj. Sandra Stoquert (STOH'-kwert) of the Air National Guard's Syracuse-based 174th Attack Wing says a significant amount of debris was found along the lake's eastern shore Friday. She says there's no estimate yet of the percentage of the aircraft wreckage found so far. The drone took off from Fort Drum in northern New York and crashed into the lake Tuesday about 12 miles from the eastern shore and 20 miles northeast of Oswego (ahs-WEE'-goh). The U.S. Air Force is convening two investigation boards to determine the cause of the accident. The company that makes the Reaper says the cost of a new drone starts at $10 million.

It's funny how things can trigger memories, I was surfing the web and came across an article about New York which has nothing to do with this post but it had a picture of the Statue of liberty and my mind flashed back to a night 40 years ago. It was the 4th of July 1973 and I was going to school at Fort Monmouth, New Jersey. That was the night I got arrested for spying. You can say a lot of things about New York but they do put on a heck of a Fireworks show on the 4th of July. Me and three or four of my buddies had been sitting around the Barracks all day. There's not much more boring than a holiday on a military base unless you add the fact we were Air Force on an Army Base and that was worse. We all were broke and this was before the days of ATM's, so if you didn't have cash on a holiday or weekend you were out of luck, so couldn't really go out and party. It was the middle of the week so we were only off the one day so couldn't really go anywhere. We started talking about how nice it would be t ...

Why should Liberal be surprised at Fox News Conservative commentator, Ann Coulter, when she refused to stay on a Miami to New York commercial airline flight, after she learned that the pilot was a woman of African-American descent? I respected her decision to disembark the plain , but by saying that the pilot may have gained her position as a result of affirmative action and wasn't qualified to fly, was racist, disrespectful, and disingenuous to the pilot who was trained by the U.S. Air Force and was a decorated veteran of the wars in Araq and Afghanistan. According to the story, the pilot has been flying for American Airlines for four years, and is one of that airline's most experienced 737 pilots. This story did not come as a surprise to me. This country has a clear history of denigrating minorities. President Obama was insulted during his State of the Union Addressed, John Sununu, a naturalized U.S. Citizen, saying he wished this president was an American, Conservatives calling the president lazy, whi ...

Broken Arrow, Oklahoma School officials remove "God Bless America" signs from schools in fear that someone might be offended. Channel 12 News in Long Island, New York, orders flags removed from the newsroom and red, white, and blue ribbons removed from the lapels of reporters. Why? Management did not want to appear biased and felt that our nations flag might give the appearance that "they lean one way or another". Berkeley, California bans U.S. Flags from being displayed on city fire trucks because they didn't want to offend anyone in the community.

This is for Shelley... Wally Amos Wally Amos, famed entrepreneur and founder of the Famous Amos chocolate chip cookie brand, was born Wallace Amos Jr. on July 1, 1936, in Tallahassee, Florida. Following his parents' separation in 1948, Amos was sent to New York City to live with his Aunt Della, who often baked homemade chocolate chip and pecan cookies. He later said of the experience, "We certainly had no monetary wealth, but Aunt Della's home was always rich in the principles and qualities vital to a child’s upbringing. And it was filled with the aroma of her delicious chocolate chip cookies." Amos's penchant for cooking led him to enroll at the Food Trades Vocational High School, where he studied culinary arts for two years. After a four-year stint in the U.S. Air Force, Amos returned to New York in 1957. He spent the ensuing years working in the stock room at Saks Fifth Avenue, and in the mailroom at the prestigious William Morris Agency. In 1962, following a number of promotions, Amos became the fir ...
Nancy Leftenant-Colon became the first Black member of the Regular Army Nurse Corp in March 1948. She was a graduate of Lincoln Hospital School for Nurses, in the Bronx, New York, which enrolled primarily minority students. She joined the Army reserve nurse corps in February 1945. At the time of her enlistment, Black nurses were not highly regarded and were not given the status of regular nurse, but in eleven months she was promoted from second to first Lieutenant. Her performance as a nurse was no doubt a factor in the acceptance of her 1948 application for admission into the Regular Army Nurse Corps. During her service career, she was an Air Force flight nurse. Leftenant-Colon retired from the Army, with the rank of major, in 1965. She worked from 1971 to 1984 as a nurse at Amityville High School in New York, having moved to Long Island when she left the Army. She achieved another “first” as the only woman to be president of the Tuskegee Airmen. She was president of the group from 1989 to 1991.

Here is some perspective to clear the air. Robert Oomens 1) The 2nd amendment gave people in a well regulated militia the right to have a gun. 2) Only 22 states in the USA actually have a "WELL REGULATED MILITIA". 3) One of the state's militia is inactive. (Oklahoma) 4) Two states do not have a military division, (army division), but have a naval division. (Illinois and New Jersey) Some of the states that do have a militia have both the military and naval divisions. (Alaska, California, New York, Ohio, Texas and Virgina) The rest of the 22 states only have a military division. (Alabama, Connecticut, Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, and Washington) 5) The Governor of each state is the head of that state's militia. 6) The state provides should be providing the equipment and discipline for the equipment. 7) If you are in the federal military, (Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, National Guard), you are ineligible ...

I relived this experience in my sleep last night and just had to write it down. I hope it makes you laugh. IBM CALLING While serving in the Air Force in the late summer of 1961, I was assigned to attend a factory school at IBM in Kingston, New York to learn all about the huge air defense computer that I would be responsible for maintaining once I graduated. This would be a big change for me, s ince I had already been trained in the maintenance of Radio and Radar equipment. This could be a great opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the growing computer industry. I wish I had studied harder in Math class. How I got there is a funny back-story in itself. After graduation from the Radio Maintenance radio repair school at Keesler AFB, Biloxi, MS in early 1960, I was assigned to one of the many Cold War radar sites located around the country. My base was Custer Air Force Station, Battle Creek, Michigan, about 200 miles northeast of Chicago. I worked on radios used to control Air Force aircraft, and also ...
Well Carolina lost a close one, Iowa got killed by Penn State and Wake Forest won. Navy got the W over Indiana, Army lost to Eastern Michigan and Air Force beats New Mexico. Overall a tough day for me in college football. Hopefully the Patriots and the Redskins can beat the two teams from New York :)
(Newser) – Maybe Flying Saucers really do exist—but were made by the US military? For the first time, the National Archives has released schematics of a UFO-like saucer that the US Air Force was designing in the 1950s, Wired reports. The plan—called Project 1794—was to engineer a $3.1 million prototype that would reach a maximum speed “between Mach 3 and Mach 4, a ceiling of over 100,000 ft. and a maximum range with allowances of about 1,000 nautical miles,” the document reads. So we're talking about a Flying Saucer that takes off and lands vertically, and travels at around 2,600 miles per hour—about a 24-minute trip from Miami to New York. And designers were optimistic, saying their plan had improved throughout contract negotiations. But the military's grand aspirations crash-landed in 1960 when they finally canned the project. "Curiously," the National Archives notes, "these pictures bear a strong resemblance to 'Flying Saucers' in popular science fiction films made during the years these ...

Why is Obama not helping Americans for more jobs? He put a hold on Keystone Pipeline but provided nearly 3 billion to Columbia to finance oil drilling and refining. We need workers doing these jobs in and offshore in America. Provided 3 1/2 billion to Air India which now provides the service between Mumbai and New York forcing Delta to abandon its service. We subsidize companies in other countries costing US jobs. Hawker Beechcraft of Kansas and Embraer of Brazil each bid 1 billion on gov contract and this defense contract was awarded to Embraer. Didn't matter that Hawker had spent 100 million to meet specs and had been working with Air Force. I'm striving to understand but cannot.

From the Air Force Times website today 9 Aug 12. Niagara Falls, N.Y. — Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said Thursday he is committed to keeping open a western New York air base targeted in the past for closure and cuts open and finding new work for it. After touring the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station, Panetta assured Air Force reservists and Air National Guard members stationed there that they would be considered for future missions, including those involving intelligence, surveillance and recognizance and other new technologies. "I know that many of you and many members of this community obviously are concerned about the future and are concerned about yourselves and your families for the future," he said, "but I want you to know that I am committed to do everything I can to fight for your interest." Despite his assurances, Panetta said a planned $487 billion in defense budget reductions over the next 10 years would not be without pain. With about 3,000 part-time and full-time military and civilian em ...
. First Lady Michelle Obama's trip to Spain in August 2010 cost the U.S. Air Force and the Secret Service at least $467,585, Judicial Watch reported Thursday based on documents provided by the government under the Freedom of Information Act. While much of the country is struggling to pay their bills, the President and First Lady are partying like rock royalty. Pampered on the our tax dollars with a staff whose salaries exceed $1.6 million annually, Michelle Obama has not been unwilling to take maximum advantage of the perks of an unlimited expense account as First Lady. ... Whether its $250,000 spent on a date night in New York, ordering carry-out pizza for 120 people from 850 miles away, or flying the family dog on a separate jet to join the Obamas on their 8th vacation since taking office, this time in Maine, it's clear that Barack and Michelle are living very large at the taxpayer's expense without so much as a second thought Mrs. Barack Obama has put a media blackout on her latest holiday including an ...
Beatle Bob's Top Rock & Roll TV's Historic Moments: The Enemy's on The Beverly Hillbillies CBS hit a ratings gusher with this rustic sitcom and The Beverly Hillbillies frequently topped the Nielsens during its nine-season run (1962-1971). It also spun off another long-running backwoods sit-com Petticoat Junction (which, in turn, spun off Green Acres), but a 1993 feature film based on the original series was a disaster. The Enemy's story of The Enemy's begins in Buffalo, New York in the mid-1960s, when vocalist Cory Wells joined a band called The Vibratos after leaving the U.S. Air Force. With the encouragement of the group’s manager, Wells headed to Los Angeles along with Vibratos guitar player Mike Lustan and drummer Dave Treiger. The trio recruited bass player Cal Titus and renamed themselves Cory Wells & The Enemy's. The music scene that The Enemy's entered into in Los Angeles in 1965/66 was thriving, with up-and-coming bands like The Byrds, The Buffalo Springfield, The Doors, Love (band),The Rising ...

Ivan Karp (1926–2012) 06.28.12 Ivan Karp, once touted as the “chief salesman of the Pop art movement” by Newsweek, died today at the age of eight-six, reports the Art Newspaper. Karp worked as codirector of the Leo Castelli Gallery in New York from 1959 to 1969—a decade that marked the gallery’s explosion into an artistic powerhouse—and was instrumental in launching the careers of artists including Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Claes Oldenburg, Tom Wesselmann, and John Chamberlain. Born and raised in Brooklyn, he served in the US Air Force during World War II, and later graduated from the New School and the New Institute for Film, after which he became the first art critic for the Village Voice. Before his role at Castelli, he worked as a dealer for the Martha Jackson Gallery. Karp notably sold an early Chamberlain sculpture in the late 1950s for $275, a sale he said was “based on my own fervor and my own conviction . . . that it was really something interesting.” The ...

O.K. sports fans. I got a request from you guys and girls. I'm planning a road trip to Dayton, Ohio from Boston, MA. A reunion of a bunch of old Southeast Asian veterans from back in the day: Udorn, Thailand vets. Udorn was a dusty little town in northeast Thailand that became a major Air Force base during the Vietnam War. A base established initially by a detachment of Marines in 1961 that included me and my buddies. Looking for entertainment along the way, Minor League Baseball games, military museums or whatever. Google maps has me routed through New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. What's your suggestions?
Before Babylon, There Was Medford: It was 1960 a glorious time to live in Medford, Long Island. We lived at 2214 Connecticut Avenue in a brand new development called, “Eagle Estates”. Every home was almost brand new and there were woods all around us. Heaven to a boy 6 years old with three brothers to play with ..All older. Two really though. One was 15 years older than me and basically did his own thing. He never felt like a brother to me. But we respected him for his older years. 1960 in Medford. This was the time the Rat Pack was in Las Vegas. I remember right before settling in Medford we took a family trip out to California traveling the entire circumference of the nation starting in New York going through the upper Midwest then through Montana. I remember great waterfalls coming down from the sides of mountains. We were headed to Seattle where my oldest brother was after going AWOL from the Air Force over a woman. My father wanted to help him come back home. It would be the first of m ...

In the 1994 chart topper “Wanted Dead Or Alive,” Jon Bon Jovi boasted of riding on a steel horse. His mode of transportation has changed. On Monday, the rocker flew to New York on Air Force One. A White House official said that Bon Jovi was a “guest of the President.”
I'm shocked, shocked how Mr Obama claims to be anti-Wall Street and corporate greed, but has no problem having a fund-raiser for himself at Marc Lasry's home in New York (after flying there on Air Force One with Jon Bon Jovi). Mr Lasry is a billionaire hedge-fund exec who hosted the affair and has donated "significantly" to Mr Obama. Also Bill Clinton, now reprimanded for calling Mr Romney's business record 'sterling', is now towing the party line.

Leroy Wilton Homer Jr. was an African-American first officer operating the flight that tragically fell in an act of terrorism in Shanksville, PA on Sept. 11, 2001. Pilot Homer’s plane was the 4th attacked that day. The Long Island, New York native dreamed of flying as a child. He was only 15 years old when he started flight instruction in a Cessna 152. By the time he was 18, Homer had obtained his private pilot’s license. That same year, he joined the Air Force and became a Second Lieutenant. He served in Operations Desert Storm and Desert Shield and later supported efforts in Somalia . During his tenure, Homer was named the 21st Air Force Air Crew Instructor of the Year.
