With the 4th of July󾓦 just around the corner I wanted to add post of some of our silver screen stars who served bravely in the Unites States military... ____________________________________
After the attack on Pearl Harbor and Gable's beloved wife Carol Lombard crashing in a DC3 air liner returning from a war bond delivery, he was devastated yet patriotic and although he was at the age of 40 he felt motivated to do more for the country. He sent a telegram to President Roosevelt requesting to join; to which the president said "stay where you are". Clark ignored that reply and volunteered for the Army Air Forces, went to 13 week officer candidate school and was trained as a photographer and aerial gunner...records indicate he flew 5 combat missions but veterans remember that he actually flew many more...that they were very real missions to where he could have been killed or wounded. His film "Combat America" makes a valuable contribution to our historical knowledge of the war from the flyer's perspective.

"Never look for justice in this world, but never cease to give it...The Sermon on the Mount indicates that when we are on a mission for Jesus Christ, there is no time to stand up for ourselves. Jesus says, in effect, 'Don’t worry about whether or not you are being treated justly. Continue steadily on with what I have told you to do, and I will guard your life. If you try to guard it yourself, you remove yourself from My deliverance (Oswald Chambers, "My Utmost for HIS Highest")
.
Behold the heart of Jesus, the very heart Jesus had for us.  And with childlike obedience and wholehearted devotion, Mr. Desmond Doss, in any and every situation he found himself in, never did seek out justice for himself but tirelessly sought to offer justice to all, especially those who least deserved it.

Everything I learned from my husband about the Tiger Tank at Tankfest in England last weekend. And of course I added a little of my own commentary 😜.

Going to Pearl Harbor and seeing the USS Arizona memorial was an emotional, powerful highlight of my trip to Hawaii. •

History of flags: Macedonia -
The Macedonian flag has a history an interesting history starting in 1995, the year they gained independence from Yugoslavia. Once the nation had left the union, the flag had been of the Star of Alexander the Great. The Greeks had opposed this flag, due to the fact that that thought a slavic nation should not use the star, believing the star was rightfully theirs because Alexander was not Slavic. The two had argued for a long time before the the Macedonians had changed their flag to what we have today, a more simplified star. The star has remained on the flag ever since

One of the many #WorldWarII #aircraft #wrecks I have been able to visit during #travel and #expedition in #PapuaNewGuinea over the years.

This one was way up in the mountains, and had never been visited by westerners, and only a handful of #PNG locals, since it #crashed over 75 years ago. It hit a ridgeline in bad weather and zero visibility, and was totally smashed from the impact with the ground and trees - but after the pilot most likely managed to bail out and parachute to safety.

'The Bulge'
----------------------
11th Regiment, 5th Division US Private Charles Preston, of Nicholasville, Kentucky, brushes snow from a M1917 Browning machine gun mounted on his jeep. His unit was moving in against the German counterattack in the Ardennes during the 'Battle of the Bulge' which was then barely a week old, in the frontline of Luxemburg.
 The Battle of the Bulge (December 16, 1944–January 16, 1945), also known as the Ardennes Offensive, was the largest battle fought on the Western Front in Europe during World War II; it is also the largest battle ever fought by the United States Army. It was a German offensive intended to drive a wedge between the American and British armies in France and the Low Countries and recapture the port of Antwerp in The Netherlands to deny the Allies use of the port facilities

Today's Post is more of an obscure War fact, rather than a major or influential event. Pictured is a Game Boy system in a display case in New York's Nintendo World. What makes this Game system so unique, is that is survived an intense bomb raid in the gulf war. The craziest thing, is that is is still functional, to this day! It's truly a unique and almost unbelievable point of the War. While not influential in any way, I just thought it was something that I should share.

The town of Cassel, France, now and then.

The Battle of Boulogne was the defence of the port of Boulogne-sur-Mer by French, British and Belgian troops, during the Battle of France in 1940. The battle was fought at the same time as the Siege of Calais, just before Operation Dynamo, the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) through Dunkirk. ------------------------------------------------

Incredible Footage of the moment when a B24 Bomber plane is hit and crashing in flames. This plane nicknamed "brief" had taken off from Angaur Airfield, flying on a bombing mission against anti-aircraft installations on Koror, Palau Islands. Whilst over Koror, the B-24 was hit by anti-aircraft fire . The fuselage fell in a flat spiral until it crashed. 10 crew members were on bored. 9 were killed in the crash except the Navigator, 2nd Lt Wallace F. Kaufman. He was captured by the Japanese and executed.

Happiness amid displacement. After their head of households were arrested by the FBI, members of the Iwamoto family made a difficult, but wise decision to evacuate California and head to Keetley, Utah to avoid the camps. They would end up contributing to the thriving Japanese American farming colony that lived there during the war.

A battle weary German POW (Prisoner of War) gives a blank stare, Nicosia, Italy, 1943. As many of you requested I only colorized a part of the picture and I really do think it brings out more depth and emotion. You can tell this very weary soldier has seen and gone through hell. He'd most likely be taken to a POW Camp in the United States which were some of the most clean of the war. Prisoners received pay, could pledge allegiance to their swastika, have pinups, and make friendships with the locals. When they wrote letters home they talked about the niceness and cleanliness of the POW Camps. This actually helped American POWs and they were in some cases treated with more respect. This amazing and deep photograph was taken by the famous War Photographer Robert Capa. Who captured the carnage of the Spanish Civil War, WW2, and French Indonesian Conflict. He would be killed in French Indonesia after stepping on a mine in a rice field. He fought alongside the men in Italy, Normandy where he was almost killed on many separate occasions most notably on D-Day. After taking only a few pictures of the initial landings he went back to a landing craft for more film. Just before he entered he was thrown back and feathers went flying into the air. Those feathers were from life preserves soldiers who were now dead had on. This occasion effected Capa for the rest of his life, although short he was one of the most influential men of his era and his skill had never been seen in photography. This photograph was colorized by myself and feedback is appreciated!

In mathematics and physics X stands for the unknown. The US designated the X series in the 40s and as time went on the program continued to test the boundaries of flight such as extreme speeds and altitude. Many flights were made at Edwards Air Force Base in the Mojave desert and they included the first scientifically measured flights past the speed of sound and then double that. This paved the way towards modern aviation.

The cold war: X-planes
Bell began working on its X-2 on October 1945. The aircraft were rocket powered and designed for the analysis of structural and heating effects at speeds up to mach 3 and altitudes of 125000ft(38,100m). Captive trials began in July 1951. The first aircraft exploded but the second would go on to have 12 very successful flights before crashing on its thirteenth flight. Still this X-plane paved a way for future aviation programs
Specifications...
Powerplant: one 15000Ib(66.7kN) thrust Curtiss-Wright XLR25-CW-1 rocket engine 
Performance: max speed 1886mph(3058km/h)

Soviet T-20 Armored Tractor Komsomolets
.
The T-20 (Russian: Bronirovannyy gusenichnyy tyagach Komsomolets T-20, armored continuous track tractor T-20) is a small and versatile tractor. Originally designed for towing artillery pieces, it is well liked and often used by infantry for transportation to the front line. It is lightly armored and armed with a light machine gun for protection.
The tractor also had dual controls for both the driver and commander. If the driver were to be killed or injured, the commander could take over as the driver without having to swap seats, which was intended to increase the survivability rate of the artillery unit.
Crew: 2 (commander, driver) + up to six passengers.
