OLD FART PRIDE I'm passing this on as I did not want to be the only 'old fart' receiving it. Actually, it's not a bad thing to be called, as you will see. Old Farts are easy to spot at sporting events; during the playing of the National Anthem, Old Farts remove their caps and stand at attention and sing without embarrassment. They know the words and believe in them. Old Farts remember World War II, Pearl Harbour , Guadalcanal , Normandy and Hitler. They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing. They remember the 50 plus Peacekeeping Missions from 1945 to 2005, not to mention Vietnam . If you bump into an Old Fart on the sidewalk he will apologize. If you pass an Old Fart on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady. Old Farts trust strangers and are polite, particularly to women. Old Farts hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection. Old Farts get embarrassed if someone curses in fro ...

The headstones are removed from the graves they are meant to mark. Inmates from the sheriff's office had been providing maintenance at the cemetery but they were called off months ago because the practice was questionable under state law. Now faced with problems of neglected cemeteries, Hampton is seeking a change in state regulations to allow inmate crews to maintain private cemeteries in the city.

47 year-old Floating Museum Pyongyang, January 22 (KCNA) -- The Pueblo incident was another biggest shame brought to the U.S. by the Korean people after its defeat in the Korean War (1950-1953). On January 23, 1968, the Korean People's Army (KPA) captured the U.S. armed spy ship Pueblo near Ryo Islet in the territorial waters of the DPRK. The spy ship had already made 17 rounds of espionage voyages against the DPRK as part of preparations for a new war against it. Therefore, the KPA's capture of the U.S. spy ship was a clear manifestation of the DPRK's right to self-defense. But the U.S. branded the DPRK's self-defensive measure as a "violation of international law" and brought the Pueblo incident to the UN Security Council while trying to mislead the public opinion. Not content with this, the U.S. assembled large armed forces in and around the Korean Peninsula to make a reprisal. In the light of the prevailing situation, the DPRK declared its stand that it would react to the U.S. "retaliation" with retal ...

Today in Masonic History: 01/20/2015 Today in Masonic History Edwin Eugene (Buzz) Aldrin is born in 1930. Edwin Eugene "Buzz" Aldrin is an American astronaut. Aldrin was born in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. He graduated from Montclair High School in 1946 and was offered a full scholarship to Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). He turned down the scholarship to attend the United States Military Academy at West Point. Buzz, which Aldrin made his legal name in 1988, came from his sister who when she was young pronounced "brother" as "buzzer" and later it was shortened to "Buzz". After graduating from West Point, third in his class, Aldrin was commissioned in the United States Air force. He would become a fighter pilot and would fly 66 missions during the Korean War. After the war Aldrin would go to many different duty stations. In 1963 Aldrin would receive a degree from MIT.

Throughout the Korean war (1950-1953), the martial art was tested in actual combat across the valleys of the Korean peninsula.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two members of the Tuskegee Airmen — the famed all-black squadron that flew in World War II — died on the same day. The men, lifelong friends who enlisted together, were 91. Clarence E. Huntley Jr. and Joseph Shambrey died on Jan. 5 in their Los Angeles homes, relatives said Sunday. Huntley and Shambrey enlisted in 1942. They were shipped overseas to Italy in 1944 with the 100th Fighter Squadron of the Army Air Force's 332nd Fighter Group. As mechanics, they kept the combat planes flying. Huntley serviced P-39, P-47 and P-51 aircraft, and as crew chief was responsible for the plane of the squadron commander, Capt. Andrew D. Turner, said Huntley's nephew, Craig Huntly of Inglewood. "The life of his pilot was in his hands, and he took that very seriously," his nephew said. His concern led Turner to nickname him "Mother," Huntly said. In addition to facing danger, the Tuskegee Airmen faced racism. Shambrey's son, Tim Shambrey of Altadena, said his father recalled getting off a train ...
Dean a interesting read.. Oh how nice it would be to believe. This is most interesting and if you only read one e-mail today, this should be it. It is written by a dying black man whom I’d love to shake hands with. It will be interesting to find out who wrote this. Perhaps we will know in time. The words of a dying man have always captured my attention. Right or wrong, they are worth reading. I believe what this dying man has to say has a lot of truth. May not be what some will want to hear, but it is the truth. ~ I wanted to clear up a few black and white questions and answers. The things I state are facts.

28 December 1950 - Chinese troops cross 38th Parallel, into South Korea. On June 25, 1950, the Korean War began when some 75,000 soldiers from the North Korean People’s Army poured across the 38th parallel, the boundary between the Soviet-backed Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to the north and the pro-Western Republic of Korea to the south. The invasion by the Chinese broadens this war coming close to beginning an other world war. “If we let Korea down,” President Harry Truman (1884-1972) said, “the Soviet[s] will keep right on going and swallow up one [place] after another.” The fight on the Korean peninsula was a symbol of the global struggle between east and west, good and evil. As the North Korean army pushed into Seoul, the South Korean capital, the United States readied its troops for a war against communism itself. At first, the war was a defensive one–a war to get the communists out of South Korea–and it went badly for the Allies. The North Korean army was well-disciplined, . ...

Final goodbye: Roll call of some who died in 2014 BERNARD McGHEE, Associated Press They each turned a moment of violence into a call to action. For James Brady, that moment came when he was shot and wounded by a would-be presidential assassin. For Chung Eun-yong, it was the killings of his two children during the Korean War. Brady took up a personal campaign for increased gun control after surviving a head wound when a man tried unsuccessfully to kill President Ronald Reagan, for whom Brady was press secretary. Chung began a years-long quest for justice, which eventually prompted the U.S. Army to acknowledge having killed civilian refugees at No Gun Ri. Brady and Chung, who died within days of each other in August, are among the notables who left the world in 2014. Others included political figures who catalyzed war and peace and scientists who changed our lives. And we lost beloved entertainers, some remembered for bringing audiences decades of smiles and tears and others who left the stage long before t ...

’S MESSAGE FOR THE FILIPINOS 18 July 2008 Written by Jaeyoun Kim Filipinos always complain about the corruption in the Philippines. Do you really think the corruption is the problem of the Philippines? I do not think so. I strongly believe that the problem is the lack of love for the Philippines. Let me first talk about my country, Korea. It might help you understand my point. After the Korean War, South Korea was one of the poorest countries in the world. Koreans had to start from scratch because entire country was destroyed after the Korean War, and we had no natural resources. Koreans used to talk about the Philippines, for Filipinos were very rich in Asia. We envy Filipinos. Koreans really wanted to be well off like Filipinos. Many Koreans died of famine. My father and brother also died because of famine. Korean government was very corrupt and is still very corrupt beyond your imagination, but Korea was able to develop dramatically because Koreans really did their best for the common good with their ...
[Here's the text of the piece in case you don't feel like clicking through.] I, and I imagine many Korean Americans, were offended when first hearing about the movie The Interview. A “buddy movie” that merely takes advantage of the average American’s lack of interest in Korea — by which I mean North and South — didn’t seem like a great idea. Given that we lost over 36,000 soldiers in the Korean War, and that there has never been a the sort of public soul-searching that we’ve had many times in films over the Vietnam War — think of Platoon, Born of the 4th of July, Full Metal Jacket, Good Morning Vietnam, etc. — I always thought we should move the other way: learn more about what created the present conditions, not turn what is a truly awful, desperate situation in the North into caricature. What was especially offensive, to me, was the poster for the movie in which the Korean written language, Hangul — something all Koreans take immense pride in, a symbol of their resistance to the Japa ...

The Media Is Focusing On the WRONG Senate Torture Report Posted on December 12, 2014 by Washington's Blog The Big Story Torture Everyone Is Missing While the torture report released by the Senate Intelligence Committee is very important, it doesn’t address the big scoop regarding torture. Instead, it is the Senate Armed Services Committee’s report that dropped the big bombshell regarding the U.S. torture program. Senator Levin, commenting on a Armed Services Committee’s report on torture in 2009, explained: The techniques are based on tactics used by Chinese Communists against American soldiers during the Korean War for the purpose of eliciting FALSE confessions for propaganda purposes. Techniques used in SERE training include stripping trainees of their clothing, placing them in stress positions, putting hoods over their heads, subjecting them to face and body slaps, depriving them of sleep, throwing them up against a wall, confining them in a small box, treating them like animals, subjecting them ...

Mickey At War The Bridges At Toko-Ri (1954) The Bridges at Toko-Ri is a film from 1954 that was directed by Mark Robson and was based on the novel by James Michener about a U.S. Navy pilot assigned to bomb a group of heavily defended bridges during the Korean War. The story was made into a motion picture by Paramount Pictures. The Bridges at Toko-Ri closely follows the novel, emphasizing the lives of the pilots and crew in the context of a war that seems remote to all except those who fight in it. The film stars William Holden, Grace Kelly, Fredric March, Mickey Rooney, and Robert Strauss, and it also contains early film roles by Dennis Weaver and Earl Holliman. Michener based his novel on actual missions flown against the railroad bridges at Majon-ni[4] and Samdong-ni, North Korea, during the winter of 1951–52, when he was a news correspondent aboard the aircraft carriers USS Essex and USS Oriskany. Onscreen credits include the following written acknowledgment: "We proudly present this motion picture a ...

Interesting. What did Presidents Hoover , Truman, and Eisenhower have in common? This is something that should be of great interest for you to pass around. I didn't know of this until it was pointed out to me. Back during the great depression, Herbert Hoover ordered the deportation of ALL illegal aliens in order to make jobs available to American citizens that desperately needed work. Harry Truman deported over two million illegal aliens after WWII to create jobs for returning veterans. In 1954 Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexicans. The program was called Operation *** It was done so WWII and Korean War veterans would have a better chance at jobs. It took two years, but they deported them! Now, if they could deport the illegal aliens back then, they could surely do it today. If you have doubts about the veracity of this information, enter Operation *** into your favorite search engine and confirm it for yourself. Why, you might ask, can't they do this today? Actually the answer is quite ...

The Republic Of Korea is a small country on the far eastern edge of Asia. Although it ranks 109th in the world in terms of land area, the country is a center of economic activity, culture, and arts. Korea was colonized by Japan in the early 20th century and later had to endure the Korean War (1950-53), but it has achieved amazing economic growth in a short period, dubbed "the Miracle on the Han River."Today, Korea is an industrial nation standing tall on the world stage. Its semiconductor, automobile, shipbuilding, steel making, and IT industries are on the leading edge in global markets. It hosted the 1988 Seoul Olympics and the 2002 Korea-Japan FIFA World Cup. More recently, Korean dramas, movies, and music are attracting many audiences in Asian countries and beyond, creating what is being called the "Korean Wave." Korea's new standing in the international community was highlighted in 2010 with the nation becoming the first Asian country to chair the G20 and host the G20 Seoul Summit.

After the WWII Memorial, the group walks along the reflecting pool to the Korean War Memorial and the Vietnam War Memorial. For some veterans, visiting these memorials is a lighthearted experience. For others, it is an opportunity to reflect on their experiences and remember lost friends or family members. Sometimes we can squeeze in a stop at the FDR Memorial, as well.
