The 3rd Armored Division (AD) landed in Normandy on June 24, 1944 with years of training but no combat experience. Over 11 months, the division would be part of the fiercest fighting in Europe during WW2. One tank crew in the division would kill 12 tanks, 258 armored vehicles and self-propelled guns, and 1,000 German soldiers in only 79 days. They also captured 250 German prisoners in the fighting. The colorfully-named tank “In the Mood” was an M4A1 Sherman led by Staff Sgt. Lafayette “Wardaddy” G. Pool. His driver was Cpl. Wilbert Richards, the assistant driver and bow gunner was Pfc. Bert Close, his gunner was Cpl. Willis Oiler, and Tech. 5th Grade Del Boggs was the loader. In the Mood first saw combat at Villers-Fossard on June 29, 1944. 3rd AD was ordered to attack German positions to give the nearby XIX Corps a chance to straighten out their front lines. During the battle, In the Mood was credited with killing 70 German soldiers and three armored vehicles before it was destroyed by Panzer fire. The crew survived and christened a new Sherman as “In the Mood.” In another engagement, In the Mood and the rest of 32nd Armored Division stumbled into a group of tanks from the 2nd Panzer Division and were forced to defend themselves at close range. When the rounds stopped flying, the tank crew had successfully killed two armored cars and two enemy tanks as well as a number of German dismounts. In the Mood took its own hits in the fighting and was destroyed three times. The first tank to bear the name was destroyed at Villers-Fossard. The second was destroyed by friendly fire from a P-38 on August 17, 1944. Lastly, the third was destroyed on September 15. In Aachen, Germany, the 3rd AD was attempting to cross over the German border; In the Mood took a hit from a German Panther tank. Pool tried to maneuver the tank out of trouble, but the tank was struck by another shot from the Panther and flipped over into a ditch. Pool was blown out of the commander’s hatch and suffered a massive cut in his leg from shrapnel. ⏬Continued Below⏬

🛡War Experiments💉 The Aversion Project was a medical torture program in South Africa led by Dr. Aubrey Levin. The project identified gay soldiers as conscripts who used drugs in the South African Defence Forces (SADF). Victims were forced to submit to "curing" their homosexuality because the SADF considered homosexuality to be "subversive" and those who were homosexual were subject to punishment. The approach taken by the SADF to treating the homosexual and transsexual patients were done with extremely old knowledge that can be taken back to the ideologies of Havelock Ellis. The requirement for homosexuals going through gender reassignment surgery is to have extensive assessment and a period of supervision for two years.nIn 1995 the Medical Association of South Africa issued a public apology for past wrongdoings. After the conversion therapy was noticeably failing, staff came up with an alternative. As a result, whenever treatments would not work, they put patients through a sex change operation. This included being put through surgery and being given a new identity.[6] Patients would then be discharged from the military, and advised to cut themselves off from family and friends. As many as 900 homosexuals, mostly 16–24 year-olds who had been drafted, were surgically turned into women and given birth certificates to fit their modified anatomy. This surgery was done in military hospitals and a high rate of patients died during surgery. Additionally, the reassignments were often incomplete, leaving patients with a halfway finished procedures. _________________________________

First year students, or “plebes,” organized the annual Pillow Fight at West Point (US Army Military Academy) to help the group bonf after a summer of intense training; however got banned in 2015 after 30 being injured, including 24 diagnosed with concussions. This event, which was held ever year since 2001, became maliciously violent. In one case, a cadet was hit from behind and knocked unconscious. He was given first aid by a cadet who was a certified Emergency Medical Technician. Other injuries included a broken nose and a fractured cheek. A photograph posted on Twitter showed a cadet wearing a helmet and body armor with blood pouring from his nose and mouth. The pillow cases were filled with rocks and sometimes other objects, making them deadly. _________________________________

⚔️War Movie Monday Gettysburg is a 1993 American war film written and directed by Ronald Maxwell, based from the historical novel “The Killer Angels” (1974) by Michael Shaara about the Battle of Gettysburg during the American Civil War. The production of the film went into effect after Ted Turner picked it up. It was set to air on TNT but after Turner saw the film, he realized it was much bigger than a miniseries and decided to air it as a movie.  The movie became an all-time high seller on the VHS and DVD market and became a staple of classroom history lessons. It’s 1994 broadcast on TNT got over 34 million views; a record for cable TV. The total length of the movie is 254 minutes; 4 hours and 31 minutes. The National Park Service allowed the motion picture industry to recreate the film battle scenes directly on the Gettysburg Battlefield, including scenes of Devil’s Den and Little Round Top. However, much of the movie was shot at a nearby Adams County farm. Thousands of Civil War reenactors from across the country volunteered their time to come to Gettysburg to participate in the massive battle scenes. _________________________________

A few image grabs taken from a video from AFPTV, on February 6, 2019, shows Forces loyal to Libyan strongman Khalifa Haftar patroling in downtown Sebha, the biggest city in southern Libya. A power struggle between the UN-backed government in Tripoli and a parallel cabinet supported by Haftar's self-styled Libyan National Army (LNA) in the east have left the country's vast desert south a lawless no-man's land. _________________________________
