Barney F. Hajiro was an American combat veteran who during WWII volunteered to be part of the Army’s all-Nisei 442nd Regimental Combat Team. 75 years ago today, the 442nd was fighting near Bruyères and Biffontaine in eastern France and over the next ten days, Hajiro, repeatedly distinguished himself in battle. He exposed himself to enemy fire while assisting an Allied attack on October 19, and three days later he and a comrade ambushed an 18-man enemy patrol. On October 29, during the rescue of the so-called "Lost Battalion", which had been surrounded by German forces in the Vosges Mountains, he single-handedly destroyed two German machine-gun emplacements. For these actions in October 1944, Hajiro was awarded the Medal of Honor. #WW2 #USArmy #MOH #history #442ndregimentalcombatteam #France #USA #allies #medalofhonor #ww2history #Worldwar2 #veteran

Peach schnapps, sex on the beach, piña colada may be familiar cocktails to anyone who's spent an afternoon (or a whole day) getting plastered on an ocean-side boardwalk, but they're also specialty desserts at Ray's Boozy Cupcakes, Etc, a bakery in Voorhees, New Jersey run by a 93-year-old World War II veteran named Ray Boutwell. The Navy veteran was recently the focus of a profile by ABC News, in which he explained his decision to open a bakery devoted to infusing cupcakes with booze. In a separate interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, Boutwell said that he got the idea for his namesake bakery from a waiting room magainze at his cardiologist's office, and while most of us would probably shrug and say "hmm, that's interesting," before heading into our appointment, Boutwell decided to run with the idea. "I got the idea when I was 92," the still-spry renaissance man and former mess cook in the Navy told ABC news. "My daughter of course was quite upset that I was doing something like this at my age. I cashed in all my funds, mortgaged my house. I've done just about everything in my lifetime. I've built houses, I've built workshops. I learned to be a portrait painter. At 93, I'm still living. I have a lot of energy, and my wife used to say 'Ray, you never sit still.'" In addition to telling ABC that he ran a bakery with his wife from 1972 to 1999, Boutwell also grew up in a home filled with the smell of fresh-baked goods, where his mother would make 11 loaves of bread every other day, and other deserts and pastries throughout the year, he told the Inquirer.

Супруги Герман и Эмма Геринг с дочерью ⠀ Эмма Геринг 1893 года рождения известна как вторая жена Германа Геринга – рейсхмаршала, приемника фюрера. Она была младшей из пяти детей в семье. Получила актёрское образование у гамбургского режиссёра Леопольда Йеснера. Первый раз вышла замуж за актёра из Штутгарта Карла Кёстлина, но брак оказался неудачным, и через несколько лет они развелись. С 1924 года состояла в постоянной труппе Веймарского профессионального театра, специализировалась на ролях романтических героинь. В 1931 году познакомилась с Германом Герингом, а после смерти его жены Карин они стали жить вместе. 10 апреля 1935 года вышла за Геринга замуж. В 1938 году у них родилась дочь, крестным которой стал Адольф Гитлер. Поскольку Эмма была политически далека от нацистов, Геринг попросил Гитлера ликвидировать этот пробел в биографии супруги, и тот вручил ей золотой партийный знак НСДАП, нарушив свои же правила награждения. ⠀ 🔹 Подписка на нашего партнёра 👉 @sergei_loktin

Rick has been missing his grandpa a lot lately, and he just recently ordered a copy of his full service records. It's been really cool reading up on his service and his achievements. 3 years in the Pacific theater including serving with the 1st Marines in Guadalcanal ain't no joke. I made this for him, as he joined the service because he wanted to be just like his Grandpa. So here is Grandpa in his Marine uniform after the war, and Rick in his class A at basic training. #hotmilitarymen #familytradition #justlikegrandpa #truehero #ww2veteran

76 years ago, today, near Finschafen, New Guinea, Nathan Private Kilby Van Noy Jr. manned a machine gun during an enemy attack, refusing to withdraw even after being seriously wounded. He destroyed half of the small enemy force before being killed. For his actions during the battle, he was posthumously issued the Medal of Honor four months later. Van. Noy’s citation reads “His heroic tenacity at the price of his life not only saved the lives of many of his comrades but enabled them to annihilate the attacking detachment.”

IN MEMORIAM - 501st PIR Veteran John Primerano We received the sad news from the USA that our friend and 501st PIR paratrooper John Primerano has passed away. As The Klondikes met John for the first time many years ago a special bond grew from that moment. During his many visits to the Netherlands, he shared his wartime knowledge and experiences at several locations with us. Through breathtaking stories, The Klondikes were taken to the past in order to be able to share this acquired knowledge with many others later. He liked to have contact with others and his comic anecdotes will stay with us forever. John, we had a good time, may you rest in peace! GERONIMO

It’s with a heavy heart that I must relay the news that a great man has passed away. Lt. Cmndr George Walsh was an Author, Historian, Warrior, Hero and a Friend. I had the opportunity to interview him a few months back while he was serving as Historical Consultant for the upcoming Hollywood film “Midway”. I could not have known then, but that would be the last interview George would ever grant - making our short time together all the more special. —————————————————————-George spent his war as an elite Helldiver Divebomber, seeing action in the Philippines, Iwo Jima, Okinawa and Tokyo, earning a Distinguished Flying Cross for single handedly knocking out a Japanese Cruiser, as well as surviving a Kamikaze Attack that struck is own staging room while aboard the USS Hancock. ————————————————————————-At 98 years old, George was one of the very last of his kind. Now that he has passed on, his incredible life experience falls over that un-bridgeable chasm of the past. With so few of these voices left, we will soon loose the precious thing that we currently have : The living memory of a first hand account. As the human body looses its battle with time, the Second World War slips from modern history to something that feels more ancient. The history of the war that shaped the world we know now will soon only be told by people who did not fight it. It’s a strange feeling, the distance from that time has always inevitably been marching forward - but in just a few years when that Greatest Generation is gone forever - It will truly be up to us to keep their stories alive. So please, if you know a veteran, please talk to them now while you can. Their deeds and sacrifices, no matter how small, changed our world. I only wish i had more time with my own grandparents. You’ll never know what you don’t know... My interview with George will be Included in the final episode of this season. I haven’t listened to it since we recorded, but I‘ll certainly be hearing it with news ears when I begin to edit. It will be my honor to be able to share it with you. #historyneverdies Cheers to you George Thank you for your bravery and selfless patriotism🇺🇸

Today we continue honoring the memory of Sergeant Francis S. Currey. He earned his medal for his actions on Dec. 21, 1944 near the Belgian city of Malmedy. During the Battle of Bulge he repeatedly risked his life to stop a group of German tanks advancing on a bridge held by Americans. His actions saved the lives of multiple American soldiers. Years after he was awarded the Medal of Honor. Sergeant Currey was asked what the medal meant to him and to his country, and he responded, “There’s no way possible that one person can do it without a lot of back up,” he said. “I hope that my country can be as proud of me as I am of my country.” To him, it represented the work of the men he served with. For his country, he hoped it represented loyalty. Help us honor this veteran and the other 16 million that served during WW2. Please sign our petition to the President to make this honorable mission a reality, the link is in our bio. You can also follow and share our social media on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram @worldwar2salute and use #worldwar2salute.

I had the pleasure of bumping into Jack and his daughter again yesterday over brunch.. they kindly had thought to bring a few period photos of Jack during his service with 8th Bn Rifle Brigade, 11th Armoured Division, with whom he took part in the bitter fighting at Hill 112 in Normandy, the Ardennes, Rhine Crossing and the liberation of the Belsen concentration camp. I’m told that, understandably, he never spoke about any of it until recent years. Now at age 96, he has happily shared snippets of his recollections with me and his daughter.. and these, along with copies of the photos have been forwarded on to my friends Antoine and Ronald in France who are actively running a Museum and website dedicated to honour the memory of Jack and his comrades, and the sacrifices they made in the liberating Europe 75 years ago. #lestweforget #ww2veteran #normandy1944

Dear Friends, It is with great sadness to say that we lost an amazing American hero, Medal of Honor Recipient Francis S. Currey. He died October 8 at his home in Selkirk, New York. His death leaves two living honorees from WWII: Charles Coolidge, 98, who was recognized for his actions as an Army sergeant in France in fall 1944, and Hershel "Woody" Williams, 96, honored for his bravery as a Marine Corps corporal at Iwo Jima in the Pacific. It is time to redouble our efforts and convince the President to designate a State Funeral for the final MOH recipient from WWII. Help us honor these veterans and the other 16 million by signing our petition! The link to our petition is our bio!

The Dutch Fighter plane, Fokker D.XXI with a top speed of 286mph and a radial engine, designed by Erich Schatzki. This aircraft took its first flight on the 27th of March 1936 with only 148 of them being built then retired in 1948. The Germans obviously thought the plane was good because when the Nazis occupied Holland in May of 1940, they stole some of the D.XXI’s and used them in the Luftwaffe. - - - #ww2planes #ww2 #secondworldwar #ww2germany #ww2tanks #ww2reenactment #ww2history #ww2pictures #ww2aircraft #ww2veteran #ww2weapons #ww1 #ww2daily #bandofbrothersoutdoors

My Grandpa is 96 today! 🎂 It's utterly impossible to cram this man's accomplishments into a single post. Not only a D-day survivor, but also was present for Battle of the Bulge, Central Europe, Rhineland, and Northern France. 🗡🛡 These fractions of his life alone shadow what most of any of us will endure, or have to overcome in the duration of ours. This man is nothing short of a crucial piece of history to this country, and a piece of a dying hitory and country at that. Recently, he decided to cease his dialysis treatments due to the toll it takes on his body. This hit my family hard, but there wasn't one of us that didn't understand that choice through our heartache. I've never wished i was home more than i have in the last few months 💔 #happybirthday #grandpa #dday #normandy #ww2 #worldwar2 #veteran #ww2history #ww2veteran #family #ww2vet #rhineland #europe #battleofthebulge #fuckhitler #purpleheart #nazigermany #germany #nazi #hero #concentrationcamp #naziconcentrationcamp #americansoldier #army #heartofgold #gestapo #fascism #nazipunksfuckoff

GIVE THIS MAN SOME LIKES, LOVE AND SHARES!! 💕❤️💕❤️ Not the greatest of pictures, but that man in that chair is one of the greatest men you’ll ever lay your eyes on. Been in this world for nearly 100 yrs, fought in World War 2, was in battle for D-Day, and came home an unrecognized hero and didn’t speak of it until more recent years. He’s saved many lives, taught hundreds of people and continues to influence the world around him for the better. Everyone could learn a thing or two from this man and I’m blessed enough to call him my friend and he calls me little hound dog.
