SINGER Justin Timberlake has brought a US flavour to Eurovision, taking the stage at the song contest in Stockholm. LENA Dunham has just turned 30 and her many, many, many famous friends have taken to social media to pay tribute to the wildly talented star. IT costs a small fortune to compete and we cop flack from some other countries for being 14,000 kilometres away.
Television bosses are keeping mum over which Rafters family member will die in tonight's episode.

In total, twenty six schools from all over Yorkshire were represented on the day, and proved to be stiff competition! We enjoyed watching and supporting pupils from other schools and in other languages, and later took the opportunity to have a tour of the university grounds which also really impressed everyone involved. Katie Holmes channels Jackie O while filming her new miniseries The Kennedys: After Camelot. Who is the "young Rafter" that Seven teasingly says will be killed off in tonight's episode of Packed To The Rafters?
In many instances, we hear from veterans who were actually inA a picture, or on a ship when the picture was taken.
This includes but is not limited to the sales of ammunition, gun parts, hardware, pistols, rifles, BB guns, sporting guns, air guns, blow guns, and stun guns.

We will join the magic school bus on a few of it’s many adventures as it journeys to the bottom of the sea, goes back into the time of the dinosaurs, and explores the hidden world of bugs. Speaker Ryan stated, "As you know, this declaration comes about as the result of an oversight deadline set by Congress."Sec.

I also want to thank the Knights of Columbus and all those organizations and leaders around the world who have spoken out on this.
We will make American flags, have a parade, and celebrate America’s birthday with a delicious Apple Pie. The children will dress up like the Statue of Liberty for our infamous Statue of Liberty photos.
A a€?But now that our government is recognizing this crisis, it needs to do more to stop it. Our Statue of Liberty photos are so good one of the children’s  photos made it all the way to the office of a Supreme court judge. July 22 - August 5 Science Explorer’s Camp We will enter the fascinating world of insects and go inside the human body. The creek was rising and the fish were a bit sluggish, but I was able to tempt a few wild browns to hit my Yozuri stick bait. A summer full of fun and imagination.   June 24-28, 2013This week the magic school bus stopped at it’s first destination, under the sea, to explore the ocean’s coral reefs and tidal zones.
We, Ocean Explorers, were along for the ride and what an adventure we had discovering the ocean and it’s many wonders. A A NATO planes need to rain hell-fire bombs on all training facilities without warning and more boots-on-the-ground then first wave Navy Seals are necessary to hunt these fanatics as they surface from the holes in the ground they crawled into. You can’t be an ocean explorer without an ocean explorer’s guide to identify what you see in the great big blue sea. A A Real War Photos.A story of Labor Day weekend 1967 at Fort Wainwright and friendships made long ago.
Ray’s Ocean Explorers’ Guide to the real animals that live in Nemo’s neighborhood, the Great Barrier Reef.
Clownfish live in stinging anemones but the anemone’s tentacles don’t sting them because they are covered in a special slime. We used field showers which were 55 gallon drums of water on top of a scaffold looking contraption. I don't question why, but I will say that the Berkley Trout Worm in a PINK or ORANGE color will usually get you a few bites. Heated by a gasoline heater that provided cold water or scalding water with no middle settings. With that being said, I have created my own Pink Worm that has enabled me to land many trout, both wild and stocked.
Showers were never long.A After two weeks the troops were tiring of the lack of alcohol and the companionship of the native girls at the bars in Fairbanks. So, I am sorry for that.A Now, when the power is out for 7 days and the clean-up effort at your house is over, you need a few hours to unwind. I'm sure having troops restricted to base made that generous decision easier for the brass to make.A Friday afternoon, Robert Carleton walked over to my bunk and laid out a plan. A Carleton actually looked like Jim Carrey, black hair and dark eyes and an eternal, almost goofy grin. He proposed that him, Merle Archie and I should slip off post after dark and make our way to Pauline's bar to check out the chicks and sample Pauline's legendary drinks.
You cut 8 legs in the hot dog and when you place it into a pot of boiling water the tentacles curl all up.
A few local streams were scheduled to be stocked with trout-- Manatawny Creek, Hay Creek and Tulpehocken Creek. His idea of excitement was watching me and Schwering swill contraband Bacardi while listening to Peter Paul and Mary on his record player.
Arch was incredibly bright and we had become close friends, having shared one of the partitioned areas in the barracks. It is Movie Friday.  We watched Finding Nemo and made graceful jellyfish out of a colorful mosaic of tissue paper.
I should be in very good company this year with my best friend Mark and a college buddy named Mark joining in the fun.
Anyway, Arch looked at Carleton through his triple thick glasses and exclaimed, "Are you F'n nuts? Remember: We will be closed Thursday for the Fourth of July    July 8-12, 2013This week the Magic School Bus transported us back to the Prehistoric World of Dinosaurs and Reptiles and next week we will become Paleontologists in search of dinosaur bones and fossils. We stepped into the night after 4 or 5 minutes of careful planning without a thought about consequences or the fact that we had no idea where Pauline's actually was.A We walked the muddy mile down past the motor pool to the fence at post's edge, 8 feet high topped with barb wire.
I wonder what mine will be?” The children were expectant dinosaur parents during our Hatch A Dinosaur science experiment. They filled the glasses with warm water, placed the colorful egg capsules into the water, and eagerly waited for their dinosaur eggs to hatch.  They decided Catalina was the best Dinosaur Mother because her red egg hatched first and everyone gathered around to help Christopher hatch his blue egg which needed some extra help with the hatching process.
Carleton had one small mishap, probably took 5 stitches, but as I told him he'll always have that scar on his ass to brag about. The plan was to follow perimeter road until the left corner, ducking the MP jeeps on patrol. There was a little dino envy when Jaden’s hatched into a big red Iguanodon but they each loved their little hatchlings as only a parent could.  The children are wearing Dinosaur T-Rex hats through out the day for special Dinosaur story times and to practice their own reading skills.
Turn right then a short hike cross country until we found the paved road Pauline's was supposed be on.
The children are continuing to learn to stay in their own seats or on their own letter on the alphabet rug until the school activity is complete. He taught us the signs for the letter D, Dinosaur, the letter V and Volcano.  He even read us the book Harold and the Purple Crayon: Dinosaur Days in Sign language! Mia, a future teacher herself, shared a special photo book of all their adventures around the world. I managed a few smallmouths and had a nice brown follow my 3-inch stickbait for about 15 yards.
A half hour later Carleton yelled "Keep moving I see a light!" We made the light and it was right beside the highway.
It was pretty cool, the water was clear and you could see the fish slash and slash at the stickbait. Can't wait to fish all the local streams, as they all will have a new look and feel to them.
Not a slow pace but a good long march carrying full gear pace, whistling, shouting cadence counts, telling lies and laughing. Signing Time: A special sign language class with Thomas Cabaluna and a Dinosaur Story time in sign language. New Sign language signs learned include the signs for dinosaur, volcano, and the letter signs D and V Movie Friday and Lunch: Disney’s Dinosaurs and Dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets. Math: Counting spots on the Triceratops, Skip counting, addition, and patterns with Leapfrog Math to the Moon. Carleton let out a yelp and took off running and I was just a step behind him.A A small dirt parking lot then a weathered log cabin, stoop shouldered and tired looking, appeared out of the fog as we got closer.
Art: Harold the Purple Crayon Art, Using stencils with paint, How to make a volcano and prehistoric landscape, and Sticker Art. Prehistoric Play Dough Center: We discovered how to make and identify  dinosaur and lizard footprints in play dough. I have no idea what Erie will look come late October, early November, but I am hoping they get some serious rain up there. He looked at me and pushed the door open.A Cigarette smoke filled the small dim room, an overhead light reflected in the mirror behind the small bar. Pretend Play: We introduced new stegosaurus, and brontosaurus toys to our play and block area. I stood at the left end Carleton was next to me then 3 guys who looked pretty much the same. The last two weeks the children have been busy discovering the exciting world of paleontology. A paleontologist is a scientist who learns about prehistoric animals like dinosaurs by studying their fossils. Squeezing modeling clay with their hands they picked out  dinosaurs and pressed them as hard as they could into the clay making an imprint fossil. In this learning unit the children learned what a paleontologist does and the tools they use to discover fossils. One occupied.A i»?i»?A A short woman, 50ish, walked out of the back, a little puffy, reddish hair, eyebrows arched on in a ruddy shade. She walked over to me, her eyes were the bluest I'd ever seen; something sparkled on her earlobe. So here at A Happy Daycare the children actually touched a real piece of a dinosaur bone and examined an ammonite shell fossil over 65 million years old.
All in all we landed 8 species of fish: Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass, Rock Bass, Redbreast Sunfish, Bluegill, Green Sunfish, Fallfish and a Crappie. The children were very excited to discover that when you look through a Magnifying glass it make things huge! The children measured and helped mix up the recipe in a big bucket to use to make treasure stones. They molded it into a rock shape  and we hid a treasure into each of their stones for them to dig out when the treasure stone harden.
On Friday we brought out more tools, brushes, and little shovels for the children to dig out their treasures. We read the book The Dinosaur Stomp and then stepped right on to the dinosaur stilts to see how it feels to stomp around with big dinosaur feet.
The dinosaur feet stilts we used were only a few inches off the ground but when the children stood on them they  thought that they were bigger than life!  Dinosaur had bones and when you look at the shapes of their bones you can tell what kind of dinosaur it is.
Actually you're supposed to have an incredible selection of the best drinks a soldier, er, I mean a person can find this far north.
The children learned how to identify stegosaurus bones, t-rex bones, and long-neck dinosaur bones by using critical thinking and matching skills. We learned that even if you find a dinosaur skeleton you have to put it back together in the right order.


We practiced our puzzle skills with mixed up t-rex flash cards and a plastic skeleton mold. Dinosaurs have bones and so do we.   Next stop on the Magic School Bus Adventure is Inside the Human Body. She looks at me with a absolutely no freakn way look and goes, so daddy, How much money do I have to pay you. There is no better way to cool down in the summer heat than wet wading and catching some fish.
Reading and Writing: We are practicing sight words, sounding out three letter words, and recognizing that print is a part of our daily lives.
This fall Lindsay will be attending Kindergarten at a school in Prunedale and Jaden will be attending Kindergarten at a school in Monterey. Smallies, Largemouth Bass, Redbreast Sunfish, Bluegill and a White Perch were the fish I brought to hand.
Potato Head as a teaching tool for the children to visualize the body parts that make up the five senses. Two double sized shot glasses hit the well-worn wooden bar, filled in a smooth, much experienced motion. The nose knows how to smell and we practiced using our sense of smell to explore the world around us by seeing how many things we could smell.
The temps during the day were brutal and the skeeters made me pay for attempting to fish Cherry Run.
The children even put on silly glasses with big noses to go on a nature walk in the garden to smell the flowers. We have X-rays hanging up on the windows for the children to explore and discover how an X-ray takes a picture of bones. I only fished where some cool tributary water emptied into Penns.Saturday was tricky with a few bugs in the air.
Sunday evening was reverse fashion -- Isos then BWOs.I got a half-decent picture of a Iso stuck in the shuck.
Potato Head Art, and my five senses chart  August 5-9, 2013Next week the Magic School Bus Science explorers will explore the wonderful world of bugs and butterflies. This week we joined the Magic School Bus as it magically shrank down in size to explore inside the human body! All the children thought it was hilarious that on the Magic School Bus Series the children have a friend named Ralphie in their class too. The fish took a CDC Sulphur pattern -- it was DARK, no light at all when the fish took the fly. When we learned about community helpers and farmers we read about a rooster named Ralphie too.
Before we explored inside the human body the children laid on a big roll of paper to trace the shape of their own bodies! I stayed off Penns during the heat of the day-- it was 90 degrees in the afternoon on both days.
I made an attempt to fish Cherry Run and landed 2 brookies in short order on my Moth pattern. Seuss’s Horton Hears A Who is, “A person is a person no matter how small.” And it is true it doesn’t matter how big or how small a person is everyone has their own body with the same amazing bones and body organs inside. Their brain’s job is to think and learn, their heart’s job is to pump, their lung’s job is to breath in air, and their stomachs job is to help digest their food. A a€?Holy Shit!a€? Carleton whispered to me.A Midnight sounded on the wind up grandfather clock by the door.
Now that everyone had made a tracing of their own unique outline the children were ready to paint and add  in  the different bones and organs, during the week, as we learned about them. On Movie Friday we watched a Double Feature with Sid The Science Kid’s episode on the sense of smell and the Magic School Bus’s series Inside Ralphie. Thanks to Irie and her mom for bringing the Movie Friday Snacks last week and this week.  The children’s sense of taste says the snacks are delicious! This week the children explored the life cycle of butterflies with Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We practiced the days of the week and counted fruit right along with that wiggly lovable caterpillar. The caterpillar even helped us learn about placing in order from biggest to smallest with the wooden caterpillar stacking gameNoodles, noodles, and more noodles.
Can you find the noodle type that looks like a curly caterpillar, little eggs, a cocoon and a butterfly taking flight.
The sportsman then proceeds to tell me that he is going to cross the creek and kick my BLEEPITY BLEEP. The hunt was on for the children to match the noodles to each butterfly stage and to find the most eggs.  They even selected special leaves and sticks from the garden for their noodle caterpillars. Spoke to the gentleman again, with Ronnie explaining that the area is posted and the signs are on the road.
Carleton was new best friends with the funny talking bearded guy and I was too hammered to move. We harvested green, yellow, and purple organic beans from our Jack and the Beanstalk beans. They are easy to see too, especially when the wings are made of CDC.A I won't be out fishing again any time soon. The fog was still dense, we hadn't really considered the fact that 12 miles out is 12 miles back. If you want to wet a line--give me a shout and I'll do my best to put you on some fish.A Trout fishing locally will cease with water temps hovering around 70 degrees.
Big Spring Creek, Letort, Yellow Breeches, Big Fishing Creek or Spring Creek are some of the streams that are fishable in the summer. A About a half hour later we were sitting beside the road as headlights appeared out of the fog. We can also hike along some cool mountain creeks in search of native brook trout or wild brown trout. Vinny caught a Smallmouth Bass on a worm and Zoe landed a nice-sized Brown Trout on a crayfish lure. Then we explored volume with water by transferring the water from one container to another.
Thanks to Irie’s Mom for the Yummy Chocolate pudding with gummy worms and Gabriel’s Mom for the homemade muffins. Magic School Bus: Ants in his pants and Butterfly BogAugust 19-23, 2013This week we are finishing up the last of our summer program and preparing lesson plans for the new school year.
We have so many activities and lessons full of learning planned for the upcoming fall season! We drove for a half hour or so, Carleton had started spouting some kind of gibberish that mocked their accents. Please send your child to school in a yellow or black shirt for a day full of bee and bug themed activities. All summer the children have been exploring how to use a magnifier to enlarge objects and this week we introduced how a microscope works.
We have a special microscope for young children that plugs directly into the TV screen so the entire class can see all at once. We went on a nature hunt in the backyard to discover interesting leaves and bugs to look at under the microscope. Catalina, Cole, and Omari were the helpers who held the buckets full of their finds.  We placed them in a jar and used the microscope to enlarge them. The truck started and they disappeared into the fog.A Just as they said we found the railroad track. We could see the tiniest  caterpillar eggs on our sunflower leaf.  An ant looked like a monster and we didn’t even know that a roly-poly had that many legs. Each of the children helped pick out the color pattern of their caterpillar, pressed their painted little toes onto the wooden magnet, and tried not to wiggle their toes too much.   Then we added eyes and antennas. I'll probably be fishing with a friend on Sunday evening or taking the rugrats to drown some worms!!!
She even included an array of nutritious fruit for us and the cake caterpillar to eat just like in the story. A A My next memory is Saturday afternoon, being jostled roughly and someone yelling at me in a deep southern voice. August 26-30, 2013This year we finished up our Summer Program with a Busy Bee Celebration Day. The children came in on Wednesday dressed in yellow and black ready to be busy little bees.
We had bobbling bee antennas on our heads to greet the children as they arrived at our “hive”.
Get out of the rack and enjoy this wonderful God given day!a€? The room was floating in circles in front of me. Trinity had little bees on her dress, Jonathan had on his striped bumblebee shirt, and Irie even had bee barrettes in her hair.   What would the little bees eat for breakfast? A Sunday, I was able to fish a local Class A water and noticed many Blue-Winged Olive spinners. You poor stupid dumb ass excuse for a soldier you fell for that story?a€? He was almost laughing. We learned that if you are going to be a bee then you have to build a hive to go home to.  The children worked together to help build a honeybee hive out of our many tunnels and tents. The “hive” ended up covering their whole play area and they had so much fun crawling in and out of the tunnels buzzing like worker bees. The children dressed up in the bee costumes to fly through the yard and gather pretend nectar from the garden to make their  honey. We've spent a lot of money rescuing their asses after a couple days in the woods.a€? He shook has head as he now couldn't contain his laughter.
Pretend play like this gives the children the opportunity to apply the learning and knowledge that they have gained. During Music and Movement Time we danced, jumped and learned how bees communicate to each other where the best flowers are by dancing. The children put on the headbands they made and we all marched through the garden in a buzzing bee parade. The children loved every minute of it.  A special thanks to Asher’s family for the delicious bee cupcakes they made. I managed one fish landed, one fish missed and one fish lost before I had to run to the truck.
Thanks to Irie’s family who worked so hard on making a beautiful honeybee hive filled with honeycomb treats to share.
I don't think I said goodbye to Carleton, I may not have even talked with him after that night. Have a great holiday weekend and remember we will be closed Monday September 2 for Labor Day. The next chapter started bad and only got worse.A Robert Carleton and I were never in touch again. Best trick tonight was to cast down and across and inch an emerger back to the shore, pausing it at spots were a fish just rose.
I made my cast---the fish slid out from under the brush---he sat in a lane with his mouth open waiting for my fly---with ease, he swallowed the fly. I looked for him 20 or so years ago and found a cousin who said he lived alone and was doing well. No wild trout today, but the Rainbows were very colored up with beautiful pink fins and the Browns looked like they have been living in the stream for years.
Thursday was brutal where I saw creeks that were in perfect shape one minute, turn into Willy Wonka within' two hours. Without weapons training, Miller, a messman third class, jumped into action when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on Dec 7, 1941.
However, after a nasty and aggressive campaign by male pilots who wanted the WASP jobs during World War II, they were the only wartime unit that was denied military status by Congress and were sent home before the war was over and their job was done. Because the women were denied military status, the WASP received no insurance or benefits during or after the war, and if a WASP died during training or while on a mission, their families were not allowed to put a service star in the window, nor could the WASP receive a military burial. It wasna€™t until the middle of the 1970a€?s that they would be recognized as World War II veterans, and it wasna€™t until 2010, that the United States government would recognize those women who died during their service and the surviving WASP would receive the congressional gold medal.
We Served Too provides a first hand account from WASP who tell their story and discuss their experiences during the three pivotal periods that make up the WASP history. I volunteered a few hours Sunday morning with the A Great Day Outdoors fellas, Roger and Bob who help put together the Bob and Jeff Miller Trout Fishing Clinic, which is a mentoring program for the Big Brothers and Big Sisters.The fish were provided by Mike's Tattoo and Body Piercing that is located in Reading, PA.
The $50,000 needed for the trip is raised entirely by the students through sponsorships, grants and fundraisers.A Those wishing to find out more can call 517-851-7770, ext. I helped a few kids land some trout and was able to see many folks that I have not seen in a few years. I told them online!!!" Clayton B, CAA "You are now my favorite supplier!" Mark S., CAA "I'm no hero, just an old marine, but you treat me like one.


We had a great time and found some really neat critters and managed to catch a fish or two.
Peace and Semper Fidelis," Joe M., MIA "I can't begin to tell you how happy I was with your photos. We caught a good number of wild brown trout and missed many more.The slower pools had fish sipping in Little Yellow Stoneflies. You really helped me alot." John B, CTA "I appreciate your work and Veterans discount and completing my order so quickly.
Plenty of yardwork to make the little woman happy, drive happy little woman to her mother's house and call your best friend to go fish a stream you have not fished in about 15 years.
So about 20 G-14a€?s, named Avia S-99 and two G-12a€?s named CS-99 were produced.There were plans for a large scale production to equip the new Czech air force.
In September 1945 the stock of DB 605 engines was lost in a fire in the factory where they were stored and an alternative powerplant had to be found. The 109 airframe was adapted for the Jumo engine and the first Jumo engined S-199 first flew in March 1947. The S-199 and the two seat trainer CS-199 served for some years with the Czech air force but was soon replaced.In 1948 25 of the S-199 fighters were sold to the new state of Israel where they served during the 1948 war fighting against Egyptian Spitfires!.
Saw a huge Barred Owl fly up the stream and hang out in a tree for a little bit before he flew elsewhere.
He launched them up out of the water and onto the dirt bank like the bass fisherman do on tv. Until one day, Kilroy's boss called him into his office.The foreman was upset about all the wages being paid to riveters,and asked him to investigate.
After I saw him boot his 4th fish in about 20 minutes, he goes: That's what I came here for.
As a result, Kilroy's inspection "trademark" was seen by thousands of servicemen who boarded the troop ships the yard produced.His message apparently rang a bell with the servicemen.
Before war's end, "Kilroy" had been here, there, and everywhere on the long hauls to Berlin and Tokyo. Servicemen began placing the graffiti wherever they landed, claiming it Kilroy became the U.S.
Everest, the Statue of Liberty, the underside ofThe Arc de Triomphe, and even scrawled in the dust on the moon. Underwater demolition teams routinelysneaked ashore on Japanese-held islands in the Pacific to map the terrain forComing invasions by U.S. Troops (and thus, presumably, were the first GI's there).On one occasion, however, they reported seeing enemy troops painting over the Kilroy logo!In 1945, an outhouse was built for the exclusive use of Roosevelt, Stalin,And Churchill at the Potsdam conference. Its' first occupant was Stalin, who emerged and asked his aide (in Russian), "Who is Kilroy?"A To help prove his authenticity in 1946, James Kilroy brought along officialsfrom the ship yard and some of the riveters. The exhibit will feature historical artifacts from a Revolutionary War rifle to a camouflage kippah designed to honor a casualty of the War in Iraq. Photos, video, and interactive media will illustrate the full experience of those Jews who have worn the uniform of our country.
Wally served in WWII in the United States Marines, 2nd Marine Div, 2nd Bn, 8th Regt, Fox Co. She said: a€?Wally if you hang onto this bill, you will never be broke!a€? So I put it in my billfold, and left December the 12th for San Diego , Ca.
Just after dark I stepped outside the barracks into a misty rain, which looked almost like snow as I looked up into the yard lights.
Yup, tears streamed down my cheeks, but I told myself that I am now a Marine, and they dona€™t cry!i»?A After boot camp, I carried the bill in my billfold to New Zealand with me for training there, and then was transferred a couple of months later.
During the 2nd or 3rd night a strong storm came up, causing a€?large waves,a€™ which is uncommon for the Pacific ocean (so we were told). I remember my cot shifting back and forth some, and the next morning they told us that some 2 dozen had slid off the deck, and of course they never even slowed down to look for them (remember this is a€?war timea€™) and life was not all that importanta€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦i»?A We continued on our trip, and on Nov 10th, 1943 we boarded a€?amphibious tanksa€™ and headed in to capture Tarawa . It had been bombed and shelled so much, that they thought there will be little if any resistancea€”wrong! The Japanese had built concrete a€?pill boxes,a€™ and bunkers made of steel and concrete so thick, that the shelling did no damage to them. Even the airplane bombing did not penetrate them.i»?A I was in the 1st a€?wave,a€™ and as we neared the island, our machine gunners mounted on our tanks, were firing like mad (which surprised me as there was supposed to be no resistance), until they were killed by incoming Japanese gunners fire, who had left the safety of the bunkers. As we got almost to the beach we started jumping out, and most ofA  us did not make it because of the machine gunners. The area we landed on, had a high sea wall, so we got up against it and threw hand grenades toward the gunners, but they were a€?far enough backa€™ that they did no harm, and as we tried to climb over the wall, the gunners again did their thing, blocking our approach.i»?I could see that the tank to our left, had taken a a€?cannon typea€™ shell right through the middle of it, so all on it had lost their livesa€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦i»?While we were laying there, the few of us that were left, tried to figure out what to do, as there was no leadership alive. About then a couple of large special a€?Higginsa€™ boats, loaded with Marines, started coming in to help us out. These boats had a a€?rampa€? the was lowered at the front, and as the the Marines came running out into a€?waist deepa€™ water, the were immediately mowed down by the Japs. All we could do was look in horror as some 300 young men died, as they had no place for cover and lost their lives. Some 970 Marines lost their lives on this small island in some 72 hoursa€¦i»?A Fortunately, quite a ways to our right, the fighting was much less, and in several hours a beach head had been established, and Marines & equipment came pouring in. Apparently this went on all night (I had no way of knowing), and by morning the few of us left, crawled to a€?their areaa€™ and a line was formed across the island, and we all started a drive to take over the rest of the island.i»?I had moved forward towards the end of one of the big bunkers, looking to get to the entrance, when a Jap soldier apparently had slipped out of the entrance, and quickly threw a hand grenade at us.
I dropped to the ground, and just before getting there, I took part of the grenade in my right chest. I remember looking at the blood coming down my a€?fatigue jacket,a€™ and thinking: a€?I hope I dona€™t die!a€? I crawled back to where we had started the drive and a corpsman came to me, and bandaged me, and I think he gave me a shot of morphine, and attached a name tag (which I still have) to my a€?dog tagsa€™. Apparently the Navy had only brought a small hospital ship to the area, thinking that it would not be used much, but it was already full, so I was put on a€?some other ship.a€?A i»?I think I went into severe shock as I only remember watching a a€?burial at sea,a€™ and then the next thing I knew I was in a Naval Hospital in Honolulu . I think part of the longer stay, was that I was suffering what they called a€?combat fatigue,a€™ but they have different name for it now.i»?A Some time in early Jan, I rejoined my old squad and went into training for the next campaign, which was Saipan .
This was a much bigger island and I was in the 3rd wave this time, and while the Japs were set up with mortars, etc, once we got past the beach it became a fire fight from time to time. Two-- a stickbait--a Yozuri Pin's Minnow is my favorite-- is also tough to beat during cold, high and dirty water conditions. Three -- My favoritefor fly fishing is a 2 fly rig that consists of a bigger and brighter glowbug with a Green Weenie dropped off of it.
About the 3rd day, we moving forward to take care of a a€?nest of machine gunners.a€™ I had just moved forward, but one of the guys (Dick) in my squad did not make a move. I hollered to him to move out, but he said, a€?I cana€™t Ia€™m hit.a€? So I crawled over to him and he told me he was not going to make it, but asked me to take his a€?Marine ring,a€? off of his finger and give it to his dad. I put the ring on my finger, and wore it until some weeks or a month (?) later.i»?This will be hard to believe (had I not been there, I too would maybe not believe,) but the island had grown sugar cane, so the Navy had shelled it with incendiary shells that set the fairly dry cane on fire. They did this so it was easier to see any emplacements, with out the corn blocking our view. Well, the heat from the burning caused a€?sweetnessa€™ to run out of the stalks, and flies fed on it and began multiplying, so much so that in aA  few days, in the early morning we could actually hear buzzing as the flies started the day. The flies were so dense that it was impossible to eat a a€?C or Ka€? ration without having to pick several of them out of the food. If there are rainbows around, they will hammer a nicely presented egg pattern pretty much any time of the year.
Since the island was basically secured by then, we just had to stay up on a cliff over looking the ocean, as they had not had time to set up a tent city for us to move into.
They had however set up several a€?hospitala€™ tents, so a bunch of us sickies went some distance down to them, and spent 2 weeks there, while they treated us.i»?A A week or 2 later we landed on a sister island name Tinian , which was largely a mopping up operation. By now my a€?combat fatiguea€™ had gotten worse, so I was flown to a Naval hospital in Richmond , Ca. While there I looked up Dicka€™s (see above) dad, and gave him the ring off of my finger, and to my surprise he told me that before Dick had left for the Marines, he bought 2 of the rings, one for him and one for Dick. So we traded rings, and I wore it for a number of years, in fact until it a€?wore through.a€™i»?After some 3 weeks or so, I was transferred to Seal Beach , Ca which was a Naval A ammunition depot, and Marines did the guard duty.

Albrecht"I have a major display of some forty deceased veterans in the post office for 12 days at Memorial Day week and one at Veterans Day for another 35 living veterans. Your photos give the viewers a real look at what was and what we should remember of these honored veterans that give us the freedom we enjoy today." Above are Frank's Memorial Day and Veteran's Day displays at the US Post Office in Reigelsville, PA. Headed to the Little Lehigh and when I got there the lot was full and anglers were top to bottom. Fished the quarry hole and managed toland a few bluegill and a good number of smaller Largemouth Bass. RWP sends a special salute and very sincere thanks to Frank for all his 'memory' work on behalf of Veteran families across the U.S.
Most ofthe bass were taken on smaller ice spoons tipped with waxies.With the heatwave we are in, not sure how much longer the ice will be around. I am the boy with the hammer and the "For Rent" sign, while my brother, walking toward the camera, carries a gas mask.
My wingman's F-100D has fuze extenders onthe 500-lb bombs so they would explode three feet above the ground, giving greater blast and shrapnel effects.

Drilling through the ice with my Nils 8 inch ice auger was too much for my shoulders.Hey, I have an 8 inch Nils Ice Auger for sale !!! Showers were never long.After two weeks the troops were tiring of the lack of alcohol and the companionship of the native girls at the bars in Fairbanks. I'm sure having troops restricted to base made that generous decision easier for the brass to make.Friday afternoon, Robert Carleton walked over to my bunk and laid out a plan. The PFBC was on the ice and it was the first time in over 10 years that I had my license checked.
We started the day using tungsten jigs, then switched to shrimpos and did some sight fishing. When Merle cussed he meant business.Later that night we left the barracks by the side door, the fragrance of English Leather thick in the air. We stepped into the night after 4 or 5 minutes of careful planning without a thought about consequences or the fact that we had no idea where Pauline's actually was.A Pitch black night.
Carleton let out a yelp and took off running and I was just a step behind him.A small dirt parking lot then a weathered log cabin, stoop shouldered and tired looking, appeared out of the fog as we got closer.
He looked at me and pushed the door open.Cigarette smoke filled the small dim room, an overhead light reflected in the mirror behind the small bar.
I don't question why, but I will say that the Berkley Trout Worm in a PINK or ORANGE color will usually get you a few bites. Carleton let out a yelp and took off running and I was just a step behind him.A Pitch black night. One occupied.Ita€™s time to make the world safe, for NATO to act as it was formed to do in this global situationa€¦respond to terrorists in unison with might.MAKE NO MISTAKE, THIS IS WAR! A The United States, England, France, Russia (in particular) and all NATO countries in general, need to step up the a€?war on terrora€™, and let us call it what it is, what even the Pope has labeled it, a€?a world wara€?, against first-strike, Islamic extremists that use terror as a means to try to instill fear, cause pain, innocentsa€™ suffering and death.Call them ISIS, ISIL or the fanatics that they are, these self -proclaimed jihadists have declared their (un)holy war on all infidels who do not believe as they do.
These radical extremists number only a few thousand (out of a reported 1 billion Muslims world-wide) but affect us all as potential a€?soft targetsa€™ for their next strike.Clearly identified attacks from these terrorists have gone on since the 1980a€™s and have significantly increased of late. A One of the very sad outcomes will continue to be the loss of innocent lives, including the young recruits who have been naively or ideologically lead via intense Internet recruiting, along with those whoa€™ve been threatened into pledging their lives and futurea€¦ led to believe that their way to heaven justifies the bombing, stabbing, shooting, beheading and suicide missions that zealots call on them to do.A Ita€™s time to make the world safe, for NATO to act as it was formed to do in this global situationa€¦respond to terrorists in unison with might.MAKE NO MISTAKE, THIS IS WAR! Can't wait to fish all the local streams, as they all will have a new look and feel to them. We look forward to hearingA from you and know others will appreciate your input on our country's history and your place in it both yesterday and today. Anyway, Arch looked at Carleton through his triple thick glasses and exclaimed, "Are you F'n nuts?
Carleton had one small mishap, probably took 5 stitches, but as I told him he'll always have that scar on his ass to brag about.
Turn right then a short hike cross country until we found the paved road Pauline's was supposed be on.
Actually you're supposed to have an incredible selection of the best drinks a soldier, er, I mean a person can find this far north. Now what can I get you?a€?i»?I'd heard of it but never sampled the mad water from Mexico.
