After a brutal seventy-two hour continuous firefight in 2013 where a group of Italian Army soldiers fought entirely without sleep against the fanatically hostile forces of the Taliban insurgency, this image captured by photographer Maki Galimberti during the currently ongoing War in Afghanistan depicts the then twenty-seven year old Corporal Antonio Metruccio of the Italian Army's Third Eagle Company, 66th Air Assault Infantry Regiment Trieste as he hauntingly stares directly into the camera after the gunfire finally stopped. @the_amateur_historian _________________________________ #

This image released by the Edinburgh Zoo depicts the famed Brigadier Sir Nils Olav III (second from right, at about thigh level) with his entourage as he proceeds to review special troops of the Norwegian Army's King's Guard very shortly after his official promotion from Colonel-in-Chief to the rank of Brigadier, an honor obviously not normally given to penguins. Image taken within the confines of the Edinburgh Zoo, within Edinburgh, Scotland. August 22nd 2016. Sir Olav, the third king penguin named Nils Olav to be a mascot for the King's Guard, is also an honorary member of the regiment itself. Sir Olav was even knighted on August 15th 2008, and the knighthood he received was also directly approved by Norwegian King Harald V himself. His Majesty even had a citation for the knighthood ceremony which said that Nils was: "in every way qualified to receive the honor and dignity of knighthood." Reportedly, Sir Olav ended his inspection with a loud wail and a scratching of the back of his head, which perhaps meant he was signaling his satisfaction and pride of the state of his troops, and after that he was given a medal by one of the zookeepers. And before you ask, yes he was indeed given several salutes by the troops during the event, but mainly his replies were simple wails, waving his flippers and/or walking in a small circle. Whatever those mean is probably just up to interpretation. @the_amateur_historian _________________________________

Korea, The Chosen Place, a poem: _________________________________ Korea, the chosen place Ravished by war, laid to waste All United Nations there engaged In another history Page. Korea, tis not a beauty site To see by day or by night. The eye beholds only the gloom Of a country buried in war’s tomb. Korea, it’s been torn up and torn down; Marched up and marched down. Korea, blood shed, land and mountains Have been bathed by youthful fountains. Brave men here have gone to their reward Perishing ‘neath the sword. Korea, twas not a war they say; Only a police action day by day, A testing place For the human race. Korea, two ideals clashing Communism and democracy smashing; The U.N.’s firm stand Against the hammer red hand. Korea, a question of peace there, A question of peace everywhere Soon it may be inflamed Again in blood and war’s shame. Korea, a prayer of the free That inpeace here we may see The sword no more to rise On any land or any skies. _________________________________ The poem is by S/SGT Irvin V. Worden, on 14 December 1953, while stationed in Korea.

Nearly seven decades after storming Omaha Beach with his comrades in the face of direct and very heavy German machine gun fire, US Army Sergeant Major Robert Blatnik, a Silver Star, Bronze Star and Purple Heart veteran of the Second World War, is shown in this photograph taken by a cameraman affiliated with reporter Doug Dunbar as he is overcome with emotion during his first visit to Omaha Beach in sixty nine years. Image taken on Omaha Beach, in the Normandy region of France. June 4th 2013. Blatnik, a decorated veteran of the US Army's legendary 1st Infantry Division, nicknamed the: "Big Red One", stormed Normandy on June 6th 1944 with thousands of other Allied soldiers. Machine gun fire constantly whizzed by his head, and a mortar shell even exploded near him at one point, but despite all of the odds he made it through the events that occured at Omaha Beach. Decades after the invasion, Blatnik and seven other American veterans visited the area for the sixty ninth anniversary of D-Day, where they helped to silently raise a United States flag at the American cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer. When the veterans visited Omaha Beach, Blatnik, at the age of 93, not only wanted to go onto the sand but also wanted to walk half a mile to Fox Red One, the exact zone where he and his men landed decades previously. Blatnik struggled with his steps as he walked across the beach on his walker, but he demanded to press on and refused most help in getting to his landing site. It took some time but he eventually made it to the same location where he dodged German machine gun and mortar fire, and also where many of his comrades were cut down. After he arrived he simply fell to his knees and emotionally began praising the Lord for saving his life that day, and he also prayed for the souls of his comrades that were killed in action. Later, Blatnik claimed that he never thought he would be able to come back to Omaha Beach, let alone his original landing site, but he also said that the trip made a memory that would stay with him for the rest of his life. @the_amateur_historian _________________________________

The photograph above shows a Soldier of the 535th Anti-Aircraft Artillery Battalion, 99th Infantry Division, with his pup during the Battle of the Bulge, somewhere in Belgium on January 4th, 1945. The 535th AAA AW (Anti-Aircraft Artillery Automatic Weapons) Battalion was part of the 99th Infantry Division which was known as the ‘Checkerboard Division,’ which referred to its shoulder patch. The 99th Division first saw action on November 9th, taking over the defense of the sector north of the Roer River between Schmidt and Monschau, a distance of nearly 19 miles. After defensive patrolling, the 99th probed the Siegfried Line against heavy resistance on December 13th. In late 1944 having not yet seen battle, it was nicknamed the ‘Battle Babies.’ The inexperienced troops of the division were lodged on the northern shoulder of the Ardennes Offensive on December 16th. Although cut up and surrounded in part, the 99th was one of the only divisions that did not yield to the German attack and held their positions until reinforcements arrived. The lines were then moved back to form defensive positions east of Elsenborn Ridge on the 19th. Here it held firmly against violent enemy attacks. From December 21st, 1944 to January 30th, 1945, the unit was engaged in aggressive patrolling and reequipping. It attacked toward the Monschau Forest, February 1st, mopping up and patrolling until it was relieved for training and rehabilitation, February 13th. @fuehrer_of_photography _________________________________

While I can agree that the STEM shooting in Highlands Ranch Colorado, on 7 May 2019, was devastating. I believe that a future Marine, Brendan Bialy, should be properly honoured for what he did. Highlands Ranch is a short 30 minutes from my house, and hearing of a shooting (especially after Sol Pais), was very concerning. But Brendan Bialy is, was, and always will be a hero. Bialy, a high school Senior, planned on joining the United States Marine Corps after school, having already gone to MEPS (Military Enterence Processing Station), helped tackle a teen gunman who killed one student and wounded seven others. Bialy, among a group of others, tackled and disarmed one of the two gunman. The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office identified one of the suspects as Devon Erickson, 18. Kendrick Castillo, 18, was the student killed during the shooting. _________________________________

Private Kenneth Boyer of Company 'B', 37th Tank Battalion, 4th Armored Division sits on his M4 Sherman tank near Arracourt, photo taken on September 26th, 1944. The Battle of Arracourt was a major clash between U.S. and German armored forces near the town of Arracourt, Lorraine, France, between September 18th and September 29th, 1944. ________________________________________________________ As part of a counteroffensive against recent U.S. advances in France, the German 5th Panzer Army had as its objective the recapture of Lunéville and the elimination of the XII Corps bridgehead over the Moselle River at Dieulouard. With local superiority in troops and tanks, the Germans anticipated quick defeat of the defending Combat Command A (CCA) of the U.S. 4th Armored Division. With better intelligence, tactics and use of terrain, CCA of the 4th Armored Division and the XIX Tactical Air Command defeated two Panzer Brigades and elements of two Panzer divisions over eleven days of battle. @fuehrer_of_photography _________________________________
