This is unbelievable. Victoria Cross Winner. Australians are tough *** Unit 20th Battalion Born 3 July 1885 at New Norfolk, Tasmania Date of action 6 July 1918 Place Villers-Bretonneux, France Details Brown was with an advance party which took over some newly captured trenches near Accroche Wood and, on being told that a sniper’s post was causing trouble, he located the enemy strong point, picked up two Mills bombs and ran towards it under fire. His first bomb fell short, but on reaching the post he knocked one German down with his fist and threatened the others with the remaining Mills bomb. The whole party, consisting of one officer and twelve men of 137th Infantry Regiment, surrendered and Brown shepherded them back to the Australian lines. He re-enlisted in World War 2, giving his age as 39 (instead of 54). On 15 February 1942 in Singapore, which was about to be surrendered to the Japanese, he was last seen picking up some grenades and walking towards the enemy saying: ‘No surrender for ...

The Fab Four Balangiga bells are three church bells taken by the United States Army from the town church of Balangiga, Eastern Samar in the Philippines as war booty after reprisals following the Balangiga incident in 1901 during the Philippine Insurrection. One church bell is in the possession of the 9th Infantry Regiment at Camp Red Cloud, their base in South Korea, while two others are on a former base of the 11th Infantry Regiment at F. E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming. At least one of the bells had tolled to signal the surprise attack by the Filipinos while the Americans were eating breakfast. The attack claimed the lives of more than forty soldiers of the US garrison posted in the town. On September 28, 1901, Filipino insurgents from the village of Balangiga ambushed Company C of the 9th U.S. Infantry Regiment, while they were at breakfast, killing an estimated 48 and wounding 22 of the 78 men of the unit including all its commissioned officers: Captain Thomas W. Connell, First Lieutena ...

I am a former member of A CO 3/7 INF. I was stationed at Ft. Steward from 1996 - 1997. I currently live in the Portland Oregon metro area. I was visiting Ft. Vancouver, In Washington. Ft. Vancouver is now a museum and in the mid 1800's was originally the British Border to the United States, when the boundary of our country was the north end of Oregon. There were several historic reenactments there and I happened across this solder representing the US Army from the early 1900's. I learned that he 7th Infantry Regiment was stationed at Ft. Vancouver from 1920 - 1941. They were ancillary to Ft. Lewis. I found this very interesting and wanted to share.
Yesterday marked the 96th anniversary of then Cpl. Alvin C. Yorks action that would earn him the Medal of Honor. Nearly a century later, the family continues to serve in the 82nd. Here is the story. 96 Years Later: York’s Family Still Serves in the 82nd by 2/82nd PAO On October 8, 1918, a platoon from G Company, 2nd Battalion, 328th Infantry Regiment, 82nd Infantry Division, suffered a great number of casualties at the hands of the German army at Chatel-Chehery, France. A force of 17 Soldiers was ordered to infiltrate the German line and silence the machine guns raining fire on the platoon. With their mission accomplished, machine gun fire from a nearby ridge suddenly decimated the small group of Americans attempting to manage a number of enemy prisoners. Cpl. Alvin Cullium York, a Tennessee native and the highest ranking Soldier left alive, assumed command of the remaining seven. Under heavy fire, York led his small group of Soldiers toward the enemy machine gun positions. During this desperate assault ...

Suddenly, there were sounds in the room, horrible, frightening, dread-filled sounds full of rage and malice and evil. The most vile beings in the universe were entering that room, seeking whom they might devour. I wanted to tell you of a dream that I had in 1987, right after our first child was born. I was a company commander in the Third US Infantry Regiment--"The Old Guard"--at Ft. Myer, Virginia, next to Arlington National Cemetery. I now believe it is very pertinent to your recent books and articles and the topics of Nephilim and fallen angels and creatures from the abyss. I was led by the Holy Ghost to what looked like a research institute near a major metropolitan area--I thought it was DC, since I lived there at the time, but it could have been anywhere. The Holy Ghost told me that He would veil my true nature from the people/beings within because I had to undergo some process, and if my born-again nature, with the Holy One living within me, was discerned, then they would not allow me to go through ...

Second day of operations Day 2: Monday, 18 September Allied weather forecasters correctly predicted that England would be covered in fog on the morning of 18 September. The Second Lift was postponed for three hours and thick low clouds began to develop over the southern part of the battle zone, spreading during the day over the area, hampering supply and air support (Seven of the next eight days had poor weather and all air operations were cancelled on 22 and 24 September). 1st Airborne zone British landings in Arnhem The 1st and 3rd Parachute Battalions pushed towards the Arnhem bridge during the early hours and had made good progress but they were frequently halted in skirmishes as soon as it became light.

July 30th: Feast of Saint Peter Chrysologus. Happy birthday to my cousin Maria Aloi. In 1729, Baltimore, Maryland, was founded. In 1864, during the Civil War, Union forces tried to take Petersburg, Virginia, by exploding a gunpowder-laden mine shaft that had been dug out beneath Confederate defense lines; the attack failed. In 1918, poet Joyce Kilmer, a sergeant in the 165th U.S. Infantry Regiment, was killed during the Second Battle of the Marne in World War I. (Kilmer is perhaps best remembered for his poem "Trees.") In 1932, the Summer Olympic Games opened in Los Angeles. Walt Disney produced the first technicolor cartoon "Flowers and Trees" which also won the first Academy Award for a cartoon short. In 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed a bill creating a women's auxiliary agency in the Navy known as "Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service" — WAVES for short. In 1945, the Portland class heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine during World War II; only 31 ...

Army Staff Sergeant Ryan Pitts received the Medal of Honor today for his heroics during one of the deadliest battles of the U.S. campaign in Afghanistan. As the nation’s highest award for valor was placed around his neck, the former infantryman said his mind was on his nine “brothers” who fought beside him and died in that battle. On July 13, 2008, Staff Sgt, Pitts and his fellow paratroopers from 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, fought off a force of more than 200 enemy fighters that had attacked Observation Post Topside and Vehicle Patrol Base Kahler.

The Chaplain–Medic massacre was a war crime that took place in the Korean War on July 16, 1950, on a mountain above the village of Tunam, South Korea. Operating at the Kum River during the Battle of Taejon, troops of the US Army's 19th Infantry Regiment were cut off from resupply by a roadblock established by North Korean troops of the NK 3rd Division. The roadblock proved difficult to break, and forced US troops to move through nearby mountains to evacuate their wounded. Thirty unarmed and critically wounded US troops were stranded at the top of a mountain along with a chaplain (Herman G. Felhoelter) and a medic. They were discovered by a North Korean patrol. Though the medic was able to escape, the North Koreans executed Felhoelter as he prayed over the wounded, then killed the rest of them. The massacre was one of several incidents that led US commanders to establish a commission in July to look into war crimes during the war. The same month, the North Korean commanders, concerned about the way thei ...
Camp Orton Located in Santa Rosa, Camp Orton was a temporary "summer camp" location for the California National Guard that operated during July of 1890. Only the 1st Infantry Regiment's Companies C and G from San Francisco have been identified as being at this camp. The camp was named for the then Adjutant General of California, Brigadier General Richard H. Orton.
He was born on 1 Apr 1967. He was enlisted in the Army on 10 December 1984. He was serving in Northern Light Infantry Regiment when skirmishes broke out in Kargil in 1999. Havildar Lalak Jan of the Northern Light Infantry Regiment fought from the forefront to thwart heavy Indian attacks. He volunteered himself to be deployed on the front positions located at the jagged peak in May 1999. Havildar Lalak Jan repulsed back many aggressive ventures by the enemy and imposed colossal losses on them. On 7 July 1999, Havildar Lalak Jan sustained serious injuries as enemies pounded the area with heavy mortar shells. But despite being injured, he retained his position and frustrated the Indian assault. Due to severe injuries he embraced martyrdom.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of chatting online to Ralf Wiepcke, He was telling me the story of his Great Grandfather Karl Wiepcke. Karl was born in 1882 in Sande, Today, Hamburg-Bergedorf. He was married and had five children, one child Ralf's grandpa. In world war 2 he lost two of his sons to the fighting. Karl was a Füsellier in the 3rd Guards Infantry Division, in the Lehr Infantry Regiment. On the 7th July 1916 defended the town of Contalmaison against the attacking British forces. Karl was listed as missing on the 7th July and has no known Grave. The Germans held out at Contalmaison until it was taken on the 10th July by The 8th/9th Green Howards. Thank you Ralf for sending me this photo and for telling me the story of your Great Grandfather Karl on the Somme.

Leah G. King (1827-1884) was another daughter of John King and Eliza Jane McCarson. (John was a son of Samuel Sr.'s first son, Joseph. He was a brother of Hiram.) Leah G. King (likely named for her father's sister) married Presley Benjamin Lawrence in 1850. Presley served in Company G, North Carolina 56th Infantry Regiment in the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia. Before 1870, like so many others in our King family, Presley B. Lawrence and Leah G. King migrated from the mountains of Western North Carolina to Collin Co. Texas. They had 9 children.

CITY RETROFITS FORECLOSED HOMES TO HELP WOUNDED VETERANS Volunteers Needed to Complete City’s First Home for Wounded Army Sergeant (Palm Bay)—A wounded Army sergeant who lost both legs below the knee during a 2013 tour of duty in Afghanistan will be the recipient of Palm Bay’s first home in the city’s “Homes for Warriors” program, a project by the city’s Housing and Neighborhood Development Services (HANDS) in partnership with the Space Coast Paratroopers Association, a non-profit group that helps local veterans. The city purchased the home through the Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) which uses federal grant funds to purchase foreclosed homes, refurbish them and find new owners. Through Operation “Homes for Warriors”, additional homes will be purchased, renovated and given to wounded veterans identified through the Space Coast Paratroopers Association. Sgt.

*Rodney mentioned. One of the most interesting battles involving black soldiers in Mississippi was the battle of Coleman’s Plantation in Jefferson County on July 4, 1864. This is one of the first times, and may be the first time, that white Mississippians fought black Mississippians. A Union force of 2,000 men, including the 48th and 52nd United States Colored Infantry, took part in a raid to Jefferson County to tie down all of the Confederate forces in the area and prevent them from being used against a Union raiding force that was advancing on Jackson at the same time. On July 4th , a Confederate force of 400 men led by Colonel Robert C. Wood Jr. attacked the Union raiders near Coleman’s Plantation, and the fighting raged all day long. Late in the afternoon the Confederate attack was finally smashed in a cornfield near the Rodney Road. The two black regiments played a vital part in repulsing this attack, and as the Rebels retreated, one of the black regiments advanced with the cry, “Fort Pillo ...
Today in New Jersey history -- another big day in Jersey! July 2, 1776: New Jersey’s Provincial Congress adopted the state’s first constitution. William Livingston was chosen as the first governor under the new statute, which was the only one of the original state constitutions granting the right of suffrage to women, providing they were property owners. July 2. 1863: At the battle of Gettysburg, the Newark boys of New Jersey’s Artillery Battery B, deployed near the Peach Orchard, fired 1,342 rounds, more than any other Union artillery battery in the Civil War fired in a single day—and Battery B’s day started at 2:00 p.m. As the Union Third Army Corps retreated, Battery B successfully disengaged from advancing Rebels and managed to withdraw all six of its guns to Cemetery Ridge. New Jersey's 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 11th Infantry regiments were also involved in heavy action that day, from Plum Run through the Wheatfield to the north of the Peach Orchard, with the 11th staging an epic fighting with ...

Soldier’s Camera and Photos from Battle of The Bulge Found in Foxhole 70 Years Later The Battle of the Bulge is known as one of the most deadly and influential battles of WWII. Taking place over the course of five weeks, this surprise attack by the Germans caught allied forces off-guard, causing massive casualties, especially among U.S. Troops. Among the 89,000 casualties was a soldier named Louis J. Archambeau, a Chicago native who left behind an interesting surprise in a foxhole he had been taking refuge in during the cold weather and rough artillery fire. Part of the Company C, 1st Battalion, 317th Infantry Regiment, Archambeau was an infantry rifleman. And even though he wasn’t part of the first infantry regiment on the scene, the 317th still managed to find their way into the thick of the battle. Backing up other allied forces, Archambeau’s regiment eventually took a break to attempt to get some rest and rations. It was during this brief downtime in the foxholes of the frozen ground that Archam ...
As we gather with our friends and family to celebrate Canada Day, Newfoundland and Labrador begins the day with memorial services in honour of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment. July 1st, 1916, the RNR was order to forward across a field at Beaumont-Hamel and assault a trench line held by the German’s 119th Infantry Regiment. Of the 780 men who advanced forward from St. John's Road Support Trench only 68 reported for roll call the following morning. 110 men survived the attack. Major-General Sir Beauvoir De Lisle said; “It was a magnificent display of trained and disciplined valour, and its assault only failed of success because dead men can advance no further.” Take a moment today to remember these brave men, for our freedoms have been gained and maintained on the backs of these men and other men and women like them.

75 years ago today… July 1, 1939 There are now two months left until war comes to Europe. In a note given from M. Georges Bonnet, French Minister for Foreign Affairs, to Count von Welczeck, German Ambassador to France, The French government warned Germany that France fully intended to honor her promises to Poland. The Reich demands that the world admit Danzig belongs to Germany. Britain sees no immediate German coup in Poland. The Cabinet will determine Polish aid to resist a “peaceful” Danzig seizure. The Reich will hold Czech teachers responsible for anti-German acts of students. The Reichsbank president Walther Funk warns the Reich against gloom; the war of nerves is telling in German businessmen. Germans scoff at the British warning, saying London will not protect Danzig.

Today's interesting story about my grandfather, Webber Davis, whose passing this week represents the passing of a generation: Webber joined the US Army at 17 at Fort Thomas, Ky. When he joined, the army was still very much a horse, mule, and foot army. He was part of the 10th Infantry Regiment (the same unit I served in when I went through my basic training 58 years later). The unit would march from Fort Thomas to Fort Knox every year for field training, moving all gear with horses and mules. He rejoined the Army at the outbreak of WWII and was assigned to the Army Air Corp. I find it interesting that he went from an army of horses and mules his first enlistment to one of airplanes just a few years later. It's amazing how WWII changed everything! His unit (during his second enlistment) was deployed to the Pacific but before shipping out from California, he got sick and had to miss his unit's shipping out. The unit he was supposed to ship with ended up being captured in the Phillipines and was par ...

How's your day going? This morning, even us back in London would have heard the opening artillery barrages over on the Somme in France. Some people in Forest Gate wrote to the Stratford Express saying they actually thought it was a German invasion, the noise of the explosions was that loud... Fortunately, the West Ham Battalion weren't involved in the July 1st attacks along the Somme Front - the worst day in the history of the British Army with just over 19,000 of the Commonwealth's finest men killed by lunchtime... Dont even ask how many men were simply 'wounded' ... Today, The Hammers were in the Vimy Sector, preparing for their first trench raid, due to take place this evening against the German 162nd Infantry Regiment. The sixty 'Other Rank' raiders and four Officers enjoyed a last meal together and it was quite a feast by the standards of the Front! Sandwiches, cakes, cigars and liqueurs. It had been organised by Tom Brind, a Thames Lighterman for over forty years, a widower who lived in Canning Town ...

Note: The US Marine Corps trains each and every one of its recruits to be a rifleman and automatic weapons expert. No matter if they are a cooks helper, typist, runner or so on, they all can fight like a grunt. On Nov. 15, 2003, an 85-year-old retired Marine Corps Colonel died of congestive heart failure at his home in La Quinta, Calif., southeast of Palm Springs. He was a combat veteran of World War II. Reason enough to honor him. But this Marine was a little different. This Marine was Mitchell Paige. It's hard today to envision or, for the dwindling few, to remember – what the world looked like on 26 Oct 1942. The U.S. Navy was not the most powerful fighting force in the Pacific. Not by a long shot. So the Navy basically dumped a few thousand Marines on the beach. As Platoon Sgt. Mitchell Paige and his 33 riflemen set about carefully emplacing their four water-cooled ..30-caliber Browning machine guns, manning their section of the thin khaki line which was expected to defend Henderson Field against .. ...
My ancestor, George Urie Howell, and the men with whom he fought alongside at Shiloh, will finally be memorialized. Mr. Kimble Johnson with the Mississippi Veterans Monument Commission traveled from Columbus, MS, to the Civil War Relic Show in Brandon I'm at to share these photos and emailed the following- "Thought I'd provide you with some pictures (attached) showing you what the Mississippi Monument at Shiloh will look like. This email goes out to all who have been involved in,or are interested in this project. At the time the pictures were taken,the sculptor had yet to add a few details to the maquette,such as the lock plates,hammers,and sights to the Enfield rifles. I apologize for the poor quality of the pictures and I hope to have some better ones available in a month or so,but I think you can tell that this will be a very nice monument and a fitting tribute to the Mississippi troops who fought at Shiloh.

Another Brick in the Wall. The History of Compulsory Schooling & its Purpose as a System of Indoctrination Excerpt; While Prussia was undergoing its "education" reforms, much of the U.S. was under the Lancaster system, a system derived from the Hindu caste,[17] which was yet another form of hierarchy in which the smaller "upper" class rules over the much larger "lower" class. Although this produced favorable results for the globalists, it didn't take too long for the more efficient Prussian system to spark interest in the States and, more specifically, America's powerful industrialists. Interest in adopting Prussian methods was triggered by a series of favorable reports regarding the German kingdom's school system. Most notable of these perhaps, is that of the Secretary of Education in Massachusetts, Horace Mann in 1844. As a result, Massachusetts would become the first school to make compulsory attendance of school into law (which it eventually enforced through the threat of imprisonment of truant child ...
This week in the 105th Illinois Infantry Regiment during the Civil War, I offer the story of Dewitt C. Green, who lived and farmed in Genoa, Illinois, and enlisted at 24 years old. He was made a corporal and, later, a sergeant, in Company A of the 105th Illinois. Green recalled that day at Pine Mountain, Georgia, on June 16, 1864. He said, “We had been for forty days constantly under fire and had grown a little careless of rebel bullets. Suddenly, while I was at work there came a burning, benumbing sensation and my whole left side seemed paralyzed. I knew that I was shot, but I did not know where. Gen. Dustin, Col. Dutton, and Maj. Brown all stood near and saw me. They said it whirled me around and I fell, but I have no recollection of that. They say, too, that the bullet went clear through me and they saw it strike the ground behind me.” At the time, his wound was considered fatal. He explained, “They took me back to the Division Hospital a half mile away. It was a big tent and full of wounded for ...

When Major Richard Winters was asked by his grandchild if he was a hero in WWII, he responded, "No, but I fought in the company of heroes." Major Winters fought with "Easy Company"of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division that jumped in behind German lines the night before D-Day. In addition they fought in "Operation Market Garden," "Battle of the Bulge," and others. Major Winters was a Second Lieutenant on D-Day who was awarded the "Medal of Honor" for his bravery on "D-Day," and in less than a year of combat in Europe was promoted to Major! And his response was that he was not a hero! Thank to the men and women who fought and died for the liberation of Europe, and the safety of our country!

This is one of those Paul Harvey "the rest of the story" kind of things. ~~ This headline did not make much news, “Van T. Barfoot passed away at the age of 92 on 2 March 2012." But he was the guy you may remember who wouldn't take the flag pole down on his Virginia property a while back? Stories about a crotchety old man in Virginia who defied his local Homeowners Association, and refused to take down the flag pole on his property along with the large American flag he flew on it. But read on and you will discover why that old man was so defiant about his flag, and you will see it was not in his nature to back down. And now for "The rest of the story." Barfoot was born on June 15, 1919, in Edinburg, Mississippi. His grandmother was Choctaw, but Barfoot himself was not an official member of the Choctaw Nation; although he was eligible, his parents had never enrolled him. After enlisting in the Army from Carthage, Mississippi, in 1940 and completing his training, Barfoot served with the 1st Infantry Div .. ...
