Today at 1720hrs the remains of Corporal Cletus Lies will return to ND. Please to a moment to remember this soldier. July 3, 2014 Soldier Missing From Korean War Accounted For The Department of Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office (DPMO) announced today that the remains of a U.S. serviceman, missing from the Korean War, have been identified and will be returned to his family for burial with full military honors. Army Cpl. Cletus R. Lies, 26, of Bremen, N.D., will be buried July 3, in New Rockford, N.D. In late 1950, Lies was assigned to the Medical Company, 32nd Infantry Regiment, 31st Regimental Combat Team (RCT), east of the Chosin Reservoir in North Korea. On Nov. 29, 1950, the 31st RCT, known historically as Task Force Faith, began a fighting withdrawal to a more defensible position. Following the battle, Lies was declared killed in action. Between 1991 and 1994, North Korea turned over to the U.S. 208 boxes of human remains believed to contain 350 - 400 U.S. servicemen who fought during the war. Nort ...
Yuri Kochiyama, an activist best known for having rushed to cradle Malcolm X's head after he was assassinated, died yesterday. She should be remembered for so much more. She and her husband, Bill (whom she met at the Jerome Relocation Center and who served in the 442nd Regimental Combat Team while his family was interned by the very country he was fighting for) were instrumental in gaining reparations for Japanese Americans internment survivors, but her commitment to justice encompassed civil rights for all oppressed groups and political prisoners. Thank you, Yuri, for always standing up for your beliefs and for blowing the quiet model minority stereotype to pieces in the process.
First they call for his resignation, now they say he's a scapegoat. He's a true American soldier. First honored then despised. Eric K. Shinseki, in full Eric Ken Shinseki born November 28, 1942, Lihue, Hawaii U.S. Army officer who was the first Asian American to achieve the rank of four-star general. He commanded North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) peacekeeping forces in Bosnia-Herzegovina (1997–98), served as army chief of staff (1999–2003), and was secretary of veterans affairs (2009– ) in the administration of Pres. Barack Obama. Shinseki was born less than a year after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, and his parents, like other Japanese Americans at the time, were classified by the U.S. government as “enemy aliens.” To prove their loyalty to their adopted country, three of his uncles enlisted in the army, and they served in Europe in the all-Japanese 100th Battalion and 442nd Regimental Combat Team. In spite of early misgivings about the use of Nisei (second-generation Japanese A ...

Pakistan-China Relations: “Higher than the Mountains and Deeper than the Oceans!” Mohan Guruswamy Most students of contemporary history attribute the beginning of the China –Pakistan equation to the role Pakistan played in facilitating Richard Nixon’s visit to China and to the souring of India’s ties with China. But this is not so. Pakistan was hedging from the ver5y date of its inception. Even as it was entering into western sponsored alliances to contain Communism, it had opened up a channel of communication with China. Pakistan was among the early countries and the first Muslim nation to break relations with the Republic of China (Taiwan) and recognize the Peoples Republic of China (PRC) in 1950. It established formal diplomatic relations with the PRC on 21 May 1951. But soon after this Pakistan joined both the major the American sponsored military pacts in the region, CENTO and SEATO to contain the Communist threat posed by the Soviet Union and its principal ally then, the PRC. It would *** ...
Today in History: April 1, 1945 - Landing of the Allied American Forces in Legazpi City, which led to the City’s liberation from the Japanese occupation forces. Historical Background: Legazpi was a commercial center for rice, coconuts, and hemp and had a small airstrip in 1941. The port was captured on 12 December 1941 by 2,500 men of the Kimura Detachment supported by 575 men of 1 Kure SNLF supported by aircraft from Ryujo. There was no opposition: The nearest Allied troops, from 51 Philippine Division (Jones), were 150 miles (240 km) away. Legazpi was recaptured by the Americans on 1 April 1945 in order to clear San Bernardino Strait and provide a shorter convoy route from Leyte Gulf to Manila. The strait was swept by four minesweepers on 31 March and Legazpi itself on 1 April, and 158 Regimental Combat Team was landed by LCI Flotilla 7. Opposition from the 1600 defenders from 35 Naval Guard Force and 26 Independent Mixed Regiment was initially slight, since the defenders made no attempt to hold the p ...

DISTINGUISHED MEMBER OF REGIMENT CPL John T. Griffin - "G" Company, 187th Airborne Regimental Combat Team 11th Airborne Division ~KILLED IN ACTION~ Parun-ni, South Korea 25 March, 1951... EASTER SUNDAY This poem was written by Peter S. Griffin and lovingly dedicated to his brother, John. ©A Soldier Is No More Death, my friend, comes to everyone, If one is old, it is not so shunned. But to lose one's life, before it's begun, Is a loss, that leaves all stunned. For a young man to go to war, To love his country, enough to die for. Is a noble thing indeed, To give up all, for his friends in need. Politics do not play a part, The soldier's love is from the heart. To toil and suffer all day long, To give his all, to right a wrong. To ease the suffering of those in need, Is, my friend, a noble deed. For he was hungry, cold and wet, But still he fought, and his eyes wept. For you see, before death came, He laid his eyes, upon the lame. He saw the evil that men can do, He saw the hatred, as it grew. War is *** u ...

OPERATION IRAQI FREEDOM-I 3rd Battalion, 4th Marines, 1st Marine Division--Call Sign "DARKSIDE" On 21 March 2003, the battalion invaded Iraq as one of the Battalion Task Forces that made up Regimental Combat Team - 7 (RCT-7). During the invasion, the battalion fought and captured key objectives to include the Basrah International Airport and the Basrah Oil Refinery. Throughout the next several weeks the Battalion Mechanized Task Force fought its way north and conducted battles along Route 1, Ad Diwaniyah, Afak, Al Budyhar, and Al Kut. Eventually the Battalion fought its way through a military complex on the east side of the Nahr Diayla Canal. It was here that the battalion executed its famous infantry assault crossing a blown up bridge at Azza Fayraniah and became officially the first Marine Corps elements to cross into the city of Baghdad. Soon after crossing into Baghdad, the Battalion fought its way through heavy resistance to the area near the Palestine Hotel and pulled down the Saddam Hussein Statue. ...

ATTENTION: THIS IS A LONG READ AND WORTH EVERY MINUTE OF IT. I would like to tell all my family and friends about a real hero. 63 years ago my wife's Uncle Timothy was killed in action in Korea. More precisely, he was 1LT Timothy Tai Sun Eum, U.S. Army Field Artillery, assigned to A Battery, 674th Airborne Field Artillery Battalion, 187th Regimental Combat Team (Airborne). He died 19 February 1951 while assaulting Hill 738 with G Company, 3d Battalion, 187th RCT (ABN) near Sillim-ni in the very last action of the Battle of Wonju. Unfortunately his military records were lost in a fire in 1973 and it has taken me months of research to find out this information. We knew he was awarded a Silver Star, but didn't know why. In fact, I am still trying to figure out all his awards. Today, on the anniversary of his death, I finally got a copy of his Silver Star award from the National Archives in Washington, DC. It is below and speaks for itself. To help with some perspective: on 1 DEC 1950, the entire 8th US Army ...
Wars may be fought with weapons, but they are won by men. It is the spirit of the men who follow and of the man who leads that gains that victory. Gen George S Patton Men such as Rodolfo P. Hernandez Rank and organization: Corporal, U.S. Army, Company G, 187th Airborne Regimental Combat Team Place and date: Near Wontong-ni, Korea, May 31, 1951 Entered service at: Fowler, California Born: April 14, 1931, Colton, California G.O. No.: 40, April 12, 1952 Cpl. Hernandez, a member of Company G, distinguished himself by conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty in action against the enemy. His platoon, in defensive positions on Hill 420, came under ruthless attack by a numerically superior and fanatical hostile force, accompanied by heavy artillery, mortar, and machinegun fire which inflicted numerous casualties on the platoon. His comrades were forced to withdraw due to lack of ammunition but Cpl. Hernandez, although wounded in an exchange of grenades, continued to deliver deadly f ...
Today in History December 21, 2007 Military Working Dog Lex TEDDs, or Tactical Explosive Detection Dogs, come in many shapes and sizes. They can be German Shepherds, Labrador Retrievers or Belgian Malinois, even Pit Bulls, but the first thing they all have in common is a "high ball drive". To them, a tennis ball is the beginning and end of all joy. From that beginning, the dog is trained to associate finding a bomb with getting the tennis ball as a reward, and the results can be astonishing. The first official American bomb dogs were used in North Africa in the 1940s, where they were used to detect German mines. Today’s TEDD is a highly specialized and well trained soldier, working with his handler and able up to detect 64 or more explosive compounds. Military Working Dog Lex was one such dog, deployed to Iraq with the United States Marine Corps in 2006. The dog’s second deployment began in November, when he was paired with Marine Corporal Dustin J. Lee, stationed in the military police departm ...
69 years ago today at 1100 hours local time Soissons France my father's battery D of the 460th Parachute Artillery Battalion was ordered to move out with the rest of the regimental combat team to help stop the German advance at the Battle of the Bulge. They fought alongside the 82nd Airborne Division in a snow covered and bitterly cold battlefield as they blunted the German advance. Dad would often say he was never so cold in his whole life as that time in the Ardennes.
We were privileged to have been acquainted with and attended the same church for many years with this most Honorable man, Rodolfo P. Hernandez. He has graduated to heaven. I hope you will be blessed reading about his service to us all. I'm thinking he got a standing ovation. What an humble man who gave his heart, soul and body to protect the USA and freedom for all.

The culturaly diverse United States of America. DYK? The Pied piper of Saipan ," Gabby", a Mexican American captured or fascillitated the surrender of 10× more enemies than Srgt. Alvin York. Guy "gabby" Gabaldon was a Mexican American raised in a cultural diverse poor community in California. There we learedto speak the Japanese language from his unofficial adopted Japanese family. Gabby is a credited with the single handed capture of over 1500 enemy troops. The Nisei were native born Americ Japanese kids. During the early years of World War II, Japanese Americans were forcibly relocated from their homes in the Pacific coast states because military leaders and public opinion combined to fan unproven fears of sabotage. As the war progressed, many of the young Nisei, Japanese immigrants' children who were born with American citizenship, volunteered to serve in the United States military. Japanese Americans served in all the branches of the United States Armed Forces, including the United States Merchant Ma ...

This dude is a bad *** !! Navy Cross Awarded for actions during the Global War on Terror The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in presenting the Navy Cross to Corporal Clifford M.

When their mounted patrol came under intense enemy fire, Corporal Wooldridge and his squad dismounted and maneuvered on the suspected enemy location. Spotting a group of fifteen enemy fighters preparing an ambush, Corporal Wooldridge led one of his fire teams across open ground to flank the enemy, killing or wounding at least eight and forcing the rest to scatter. As he held security alone to cover his fire team's withdrawal, he heard voices from behind an ...
  December 13, 1956 - Athletic Field on Camp Rapid   On this date in 1956 the grandstands on the Camp Rapid athletic field were torn down.  The grandstands were built in the 1940s on the parade field, just southwest of the current Joint Forces Headquarters building.  In the late 1940's and early 1950's athletic events played a big part of National Guard membership.  During annual training, baseball, softball and especially boxing were the entertainment in the evenings.   Several things changed the athletic activity on Camp Rapid, not the least of which was the 1950-52 mobilizations of the 109th Engineer Battalion and the 196th Regimental Combat team.  Contributing to the reduction of use of the athletic facility was the constant stream of injuries and subsequent line of duty investigations. Another factor was that the units spent most of their training in the Black Hills and the surrounding area and less on Camp Rapid.   Local youth and adult baseball teams from the community were allowed to use t ...
ONLY THE BRAVE THE RESCUE OF THE LOST BATTALION The 442nd Regimental Combat Team is best known for rescuing “the Lost Battalion” in the Vosges Mountains. The 442nd and the 141st Texas Regiment were both part of the 36th Division under the command of Major General John Dahlquist. They were fighting in Eastern France, near the German border. The 442nd had just finished 10 brutal days of fighting to liberate the French towns of Bruyeres and Biffontaine. Finally, on October 23, 1944, the Nisei got clean, dry clothes, hot food and rest. Glorious rest. But not for long. General Dahlquist had another trapped unit that needed rescuing. Dahlquist had ordered the 141st Texas Regiment to advance four miles beyond friendly forces. The Texans warned that they would get cut off, but they pushed on as ordered. Naturally, the Germans surrounded them. In fact, 6,000 fresh German troops moved into the area. Der Fuhrer’s orders were to hold the area. No surrender. No retreat. More than 200 Texans, known as the “Lost ...

On this day in history for the 87th CMB 8 June 1943, Item 15: Strength increased to 166 enlisted men, obtained by transfer. 8 June 1944, Item 81 (D plus 2): Company A was detached from the 8th Infantry Regiment and attached to the 12th Infantry at 0630 to support the attack of this regiment north towards Montebourg. This placed at least one mortar company with each combat team of the 4th Infantry Division. On two occasions, counterattacks were stopped by intense barrages delivered by this company and a number of rounds were placed on enemy positions. Company B and Company C remained attached to the 8th Infantry Regiment and moved north with the 1st and 2nd Battalions, respectively, towards Montebourg. While displacing forward to a new position, just north of Ste. Mere Eglise, Company B came under very heavy shell fire at 1020. This shellfire hit the road without prior registration. Lieutenant Taylor and four men were seriously wounded. Two mortars and two M-29 Cargo Carriers were put out of action. Compan ...

Hey Guys Marilyn, my entrepreneurial niece in Cortland NY, just told me about her latest project. A young officer, whom she taught in the 1st grade, is getting ready to lead his unit into combat. Apache Troop, 4th Squadron of the 9th Cavalry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division is deploying to Afghanistan soon. Marilyn wants to equip all 100 members of Apache Troop with a Mary Kay Sunscreen and Lip Balm kit, (it’s wicked hot over there ya know).

Happy Birthday Bear Grylls !! One of my favorites, here are some facts about him 1. His claim to fame is that he became the youngest person to reach the tip of Mount Everest in 1998 at the age of 23. He made it into the Guinness book of records but his record has since been broken - four times. 2. Shockingly (not really), his name is not actually Bear. His real name is Edward Michael Grylls. 3. His only sibling Lara gave him the nickname "Bear" when he was just a week old. 4. He has a black belt in karate. 5. He served three years with the British Special Air Service (21 SAS). 6. It was with the SAS that he was trained in evasive driving, parachuting, demolitions, trauma medic, unarmed combat and jungle warfare. At least it paid off. 7. A year before climbing Mount Everest, Grylls broke his back in three places in a free-fall parachuting accident. 8. His first book, Facing Up went into the top 10 best-seller list in Britain- it was also later launched in the USA titled, The kid who climbed Mount Everest. ...

My comments at our local TEA meeting: Today we need to be especially proud of our citizen soldiers. The Virginia Army National Guardsmen that are currently & have been stationed throughout the Shenandoah Valley since 1741. The 116th Infantry was inducted into Federal service on 3 February 1941. On "D-Day", 69 years ago, this Regimental Combat Team spearheaded one of the greatest military operations in history, the assault landing on the German held coast of Normandy, France. As the main assault regiment of the 29th Infantry Division they suffered 341 casualties on Omaha Beach. These men we thank for liberating Europe and winning WWII. I believe they actually saved freedom & personal liberty, not just on a continent, but on this planet. I hope we are not letting it slip away. Rangers Lead the Way, 29 Let's Go.

Permission To Do What They Do Women were serving in combat roles long before U.S. lifted ban on practice By Alexandra Zavis Los Angeles Times February 19, 2013 Pg. 3 FORWARD OPERATING BASE PASAB, AFGHANISTAN -- They fly troops into combat, drive convoys down mine-riddled roads and take part in foot patrols in the heartland of the Taliban-led insurgency. For American women serving at military bases across Afghanistan, there was nothing extraordinary about the recent Pentagon decision to lift the official ban on women in direct combat roles. "We're already here," said Army Capt. Kelly Hasselman, 28, of Broken Arrow, Okla., who commands a company of female soldiers that deployed with infantry in the southern province of Kandahar to build relations with rural Afghan women. "It's just not officially been in the books." U.S. commanders say that military policy was out of step with the reality of two wars with virtually no front lines. Women, who make up about 15% of the active-duty military, have faced gunfire, ...
