Veterans Day: November 11th, 2014

 

  • Those following me in the past will know I always post something about veterans on Veterans Day and other veterans holidays.  I usually post the same or similar accounts year after year.  Often I will add something new … something compelling about fighting men and women.  The following is comprised of several stories or events.There is so much to honor about our and our allies’ veterans … so much, and we can never do the honor justice.  I hope you will do your part and more to honor out veterans.

    It Was Armistice Day (11th Month, 11th day, 11th Hour, 1918)

    Veterans Day 2007 poster from the United State...
    Image via Wikipedia

    The treaty to end the War To End All Wars was signed on November 11th, at 11 AM, 1918. The day was to be celebrated from that time on as Armistice Day.

    We know of course, World War I did not end all wars and another World War (WWII) would kill young and old alike from its beginning in 1939 until its end in 1945.

    The following, taken from the website Military.com explains the history of Armistince Day and how it came to be Veterans Day:

    Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor the end of World War I, which officially took place on November 11, 1918. In legislation that was passed in 1938, November 11 was “dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be hereafter celebrated and known as ‘Armistice Day.’” As such, this new legal holiday honored World War I veterans.

    In 1954, after having been through both World War II and the Korean War, the 83rd U.S. Congress — at the urging of the veterans service organizations — amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word “Armistice” and inserting the word “Veterans.” With the approval of this legislation on June 1, 1954, Nov. 11 became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.

    And so we do … honor our veterans, today November 11, 2014 and forward in time.

    Here’s an enlightening piece about a small town that has yet to forget the

    ir liberators during WWII.  First posted by us on November 12, 2010

    TODAY, NOVEMBER 12 2010, WILL BE CELEBRATED AS VETERANS DAY IN THE UNITED STATES. THE INFORMATION POSTED BELOW TELLS A TALE FROM A FAR DISTANT LAND.  A TALE ABOUT ONE PEOPLE’S LOVE AND DEDICATION TO PEOPLE WHO FOUND THEMSELVES IN A FOREIGN TOWN,  SAVING OR LIBERATING ITS PEOPLE.

    THIS POSTING OF THE INFORMATION BELOW WILL HONOR OUR VETERANS, JUST AS THAT SMALL TOWN HAS HONORED THEM FOR AN UNBELIEVABLE NUMBER OF YEARS.  I HAVE NO IDEA WHO TO ATTRIBUTE ALL OF THE INFORMATIONAL TEXT AND THE BEAUTIFUL IMAGES FOUND BELOW.  FOR THAT I AM SORRY, BUT IF SOMEONE WILL LET ME KNOW WHO TO ACKNOWLEDGE FOR THIS GREAT INFORMATION, I WILL BE PLEASED TO ATTRIBUTE THEIR WORK.

    Some of you will not be able to see the images below.  I apologize, but here is the link for the town web site … you’ll like it:
    YOU’ BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE FESTIVITIES
    Have you ever wondered if anyone in Europe remembers America’s sacrifice in World War II?  There is an answer in a small town in the Czech Republic, in the town called Pilsen (Plzen ).

    Every 5 years, Pilsen conducts the Liberation Celebration of the City of Pilsen in the Czech Republic.

    May 6th, 2010, marked the 65th anniversary of the liberation of Pilsen by General George Patton’s 3rd Army.Pilsen
    is the town that every American should visit.  Why?  Because they love America and the American Soldier…

    Even 65 years later… by the thousands,The citizens of Pilsen came to say thank you.

    Lining  the streets of Pilsen for miles -From the large crowds, to quiet reflective moments,including this American family’s private time to honor and remember their American hero.

    This is the crash site of Lt. Virgil P. Kirkham, the last recorded American USAAF pilot killed in Europe during WWII. It was Lt. Kirkham’s 82nd mission and one that he volunteered to go on. At the time, this 20-year-old pilot’s P-47 Thunderbolt plane was shot down, a young 14-year-old Czech girl, Zdenka Sladkova, was so moved by his sacrifice she made a vow to care for him and his memory.For 65 straight years, Zdenka, now 79-years-old, took on the responsibility to care for Virgil’s crash site and memorial near her home.

    On May 4th, she was recognized by the Mayor of Zdenka’s home town of Trhanova ,Czech Republic, forher sacrifice and extraordinary effort to honor this American hero.

    Another chapter in this important story… the Czech people are teaching their children about America’s sacrifice for their freedom.

    American Soldiers, young and old, are the ”Rock Stars” these children and their parents want autographs from.

    Yes, Rock Stars! As they patiently waited for his autograph, the respect this little Czech boy and his father have for our troops serving today was heartwarming and inspirational.

    The Brian LaViolette Foundation established The Scholarship of Honor in tribute to General George S. Patton and the American Soldier, past and present.

    Each year, a different military hero will be honored in tribute to General Patton’s memory and their mission to liberate Europe . This award will be presented to a graduating senior who will be entering the military or a form of community service such as fireman, policeman, teaching or nursing – – – a cause greater than self. The student will be from 1 of the 5 high schools in Pilsen, Czech Republic .

    The first award will be presented in May 2011 in honor of Lt. Virgil Kirkham, that young 20-year-old P-47 pilot killed 65 years ago in the final days of WWII.

    Presenting Virgil’s award will be someone who knows the true meaning of service and sacrifice… someone who looks a lot like Virgil. Marion Kirkham, Virgil’s brother, who himself served during WWII in the United States Army Air Corps!!!

    In closing… Here is what the city of Pilsen thinks of General Patton’s grandson. George Patton Waters (another Rock Star!) we’re proud to say, serves on Brian’s Foundation board.

    And it’s front page news over there. not buried in the middle of the social section.

    Brigadier General Miroslav Zizka – 1st Deputy Chief of Staff, Ministry of Defense, Czech Armed Forces.

    I have posted the following poems for several years running. I hope you will enjoy them and understand why I believe the draft should be reinstated.

    THE FOLLOWING POEMS, IN FLANDERS FIELD BY LT.

    In Flanders Fields

    Veterans Day | Field of poppies

    Veterans Day | Field of poppies (Photo credit: *Arielle*)

    In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below.

    We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved, and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields.

    Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high.

    If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields.

    Detailed information concerning the circumstances of the penning of In Flanders Fields can be found here

    TOMMY

    I went into a public-‘ouse to get a pint o’ beer, The publican ‘e up an’ sez, “We serve no red-coats here.” The girls be’ind the bar they laughed an’ giggled fit to die, I outs into the street again an’ to myself sez I: O it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, go away”; But it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play, The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play, O it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play.

    I went into a theatre as sober as could be, They gave a drunk civilian room, but ‘adn’t none for me; They sent me to the gallery or round the music-‘alls, But when it comes to fightin’, Lord! they’ll shove me in the stalls! For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, wait outside”; But it’s “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide, The troopship’s on the tide, my boys, the troopship’s on the tide, O it’s “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide.

    Yes, makin’ mock o’ uniforms that guard you while you sleep Is cheaper than them uniforms, an’ they’re starvation cheap; An’ hustlin’ drunken soldiers when they’re goin’ large a bit Is five times better business than paradin’ in full kit. Then it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, ‘ow’s yer soul?” But it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll, The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll, O it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll.

    We aren’t no thin red ‘eroes, nor we aren’t no blackguards too, But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you; An’ if sometimes our conduck isn’t all your fancy paints, Why, single men in barricks don’t grow into plaster saints; While it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, fall be’ind”, But it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind, There’s trouble in the wind, my boys, there’s trouble in the wind, O it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind.

    You talk o’ better food for us, an’ schools, an’ fires, an’ all: We’ll wait for extry rations if you treat us rational. Don’t mess about the cook-room slops, but prove it to our face The Widow’s Uniform is not the soldier-man’s disgrace. For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Chuck him out, the brute!” But it’s “Saviour of ‘is country” when the guns begin to shoot; An’ it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ anything you please; An’ Tommy ain’t a bloomin’ fool — you bet that Tommy sees!

    Below is a nice recitation of Tommy

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=nGClrsAN2aY

     

    You will also find a very lengthy account of Kipling and his life here, where one of his most popular poems, My Boy Jack is given full treatment (after all it was about his son Jack’s death in battle.)  For reasons unstated, no mentions is made of  Tommy. Perhaps others do not share my respect for the poem, but more can be found regarding Tommy’s publication by clicking  here.

    Finally, the reader has seen that both poems are written by those who wrote of their own nation’s experience in war and individual battles.  The soldiers who fight, have much in common and little at odds … with the exception of the cause for which they must fight as dictated by their “Commanders in Chief.”

    This will end my 2014 contribution for
    Veterans Day.  I hope it was not to much to swallow for one setting, but if it is/was return to read it another day or days.

The Dirt And The Facts Are In

abortioninfantocide

 We are posting the information found below because we support this organization and its goals.  We have not and will not receive any compensation for the posting of this material.

Should you wish to donate to the organization (Protect #ABQ Women & Children) there is a link for such toward the bottom of this post.

 

Dear Supporters,

 

  

 

Are you undecided, or perhaps unsure how to vote? You MUST see this video and please share!

 

 

ABQ, THIS IS LATE-TERM ABORTION.  Despite the distractions and rhetoric about women’s health, the reality is that women are being told to deliver their dead baby into a toilet — without the supervision of a doctor, nurse or even within a medical facility.  THIS IS NOT WOMEN’S HEALTH,  THIS IS A DISGRACE TO WOMEN AND CHILDREN. 

 

 

Watch this video and hear for yourself!

  

 

STILL NOT SURE HOW TO VOTE? 

 

Hear what experts in the field of late-term abortion and fetal pain have to say.  

 

Don’t listen to unqualified, ideological statements from just anyone about the medical facts–especially a retired General Family Medicine Doctor with no professional experience in the matter. 

  


   

Need more proof? 

 

At a Public Forum in Albuquerque on Friday, Dr. Anthony Levatino — New Mexico OB/GYN and former late-term abortionist who provided his expert testimony in front of the U.S. House on the issue of 20 week abortion and beyond — commented on this video,   
 

These people who care about women are telling her to deliver a 7 month pregnancy in a hotel room, in a toilet, with no medical attending at all. No nurse, no doctor. These are the people who ‘care about women’ . . . They’re lying when they’re talking about this being safer. They’re lying when they say that they care about women — when they tell them to deliver 7 month babies on toilets. DO SOMETHING. Please, this is your chance.”

 

Believe it or not, Albuquerque, this is just the tip of the iceberg. More facts and reasons why you should vote FOR this ordinance on behalf of women and children to come . . . stay tuned!

 

View Dr. Levatino’s expert testimony of the horrors of late-term abortion by clicking on the link below.  

 

In addition to Dr. Levatino, Dr. Steffan Brown, a University of New Mexico physician completing a fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine has also voiced his support FOR this ordinance. Brown, who performs minimally invasive procedures with fetuses at UNM Hospital, stated that he uses painkillers on both mothers and fetuses to improve outcomes of these life-saving fetal surguries.

Please forward this urgent message to your family and friends. Albuquerque voters must understand what late-term abortion is and it’s dangers to women and brutality toward children!Regards,

Remember All Of Them

We are going forward this weekend and into next week to honor our past, current and future veterans.  As we recognize their sacrifices, let us not forget there are hundreds of thousands fighting personal demons as they seek to live the life for which they fought the physical enemy, most never knowing or thinking about the mental turmoil all might be subjected to.

I want to thank “Mel,” of Mel’s Videos for always caring enough to post poignant stories of our fellow citizens … some sad, but all with a glimmer or more of hope. It was on Mel’s site I first saw this video. The video shown below is actually a YouTube video posted by another person or persons, the work of which, shows they care. The video will give directions on how to donate to help others similarly affected
