Now that we've kicked off our Best of 2009 coverage, we want to know: which joint gets your top pick for fast food restaurant?
In-N-Out should be on the list, best company ever (I worked for them for 4 years, half of that time I was a vegetarian too).
I voted for Taco Bell, they are VERY vegetarian friendly, easy to substitute meat for beans in anything. Good Guy Fast Food Employee – Kill the Hydra Set up your new menu Kill the Hydra Funny pictures, memes, and videos! Unless you're in a particularly remote area, you can't go far in most develoA­ped countries without finding a fast-food restaurant. The fast food phenomenon evolved from drive-in restaurants built in southern California in the early 1940s.
A­Their old drive-in had already made them rich, but the new restaurant - which became McDonald's - made the brothers famous.
Before the McDonald brothers invented their fast-food production system, some restaurants did make food pretty quickly.
Instead of being designed to facilitate the preparation of a variety of food relatively quickly, the kitchen's purpose was to make a very large amount of a very few items. When you visit different restaurants belonging to the same fast-food chain, the menu and food are pretty much the same. Copies of the Speedee Service System spread throughout California and the rest of the United States as restaurateurs adapted the techniques for their own restaurants. Tub’s Subs - Tasty, gourmet sandwiches are the specialty at this Seattle restaurant, and are perfect for a quick meal.
Kidd Valley - Kidd Valley is similar to Dick’s, with great burgers, fries and superb shakes.

When Chris announced to the songwriters at Jack's that he'd joined the Army, they all shuddered in disbelief.
Although the lead character is a female, Chris says that she's partially his alter ego in the. When Chris was finally discharged from the Army in 1995, he got back to the business of being a folksinger.
Anyone who's ever strapped on a hollow-body in Jack's vicinity has heard that howl of protest. Through all the violence of the military novels and the stumbling forward of Thatcher in Hoboken, Chris describes all three novels as love stories. Chris has made a number of appearances on NPR, as a guest on Terry Gross's Fresh Air and as a semi-regular commentator on All Things Considered, and links to his ATC radio essays are available through his site. The above descriptive passage encapsulates why my reaction to Chris's work is so strong.A  You look down and you read and it's all there. Restaurateurs wanted to take advantage of the rising popularity of cars, so they designed restaurants that let people order and eat without leaving their vehicles.
Restaurateurs traveled from all over the country to copy their system of fast food preparation, which they called the Speedee Service System. These restaurants employed short-order cooks, who specialized in making food that didn't require a lot of preparation time. For example, when Ray Kroc, who founded the McDonald's corporation, visited the restaurant for the first time in 1954, he was selling milkshake machines that could make five shakes at once. Many of the chains that copied the McDonald brothers' ideas still exist - they serve everything from tacos to chicken. While a little expensive, the mouth-watering flavor in these subs make up for the few extra dollars spent over regular fast food.
In fact, it was so good that our school’s JV cross country team decided to host the Burger Challenge.
John told them that, if they really wanted to take songwriting seriously, they should get themselves to Greenwich Village in New York City to Jack Hardy's song circle. It contains some of the most harrowing scenes of what fatigue and nerves can do to a human being from boot camp onward into the battle zone. Again he pulls the reader underneath the skin of the characters to bring a more complete understanding of what it is to be soldier.
Although he was basically a Pennsylvanian, he spent enough time in Hoboken with friends, crashing on couches, that he was easily assimilated into the cadre that would become Camp Hoboken. Those of us who knew Chris and the Hoboken crew back then are having a field day connecting the characters with their real-life counterparts. Chris could've stopped there, but, of course he would need to describe Geoff's small apartment with the pictures of the wall of a€?Geoffa€? and other icons of folk music, the imbibing of wine and sharing of songs. There are entries for reviews, interviews and some stories of day-to-day experiences that are infused with humor. There are entries for reviews, interviews and someA  stories of day-to-day experiences that are infused with humor.
In many instances, we hear from veterans who were actually inA a picture, or on a ship when the picture was taken.
Drive-ins were busy and successful, but they generally used the same short-order style of food preparation that other restaurants did.
They wanted to make food faster, sell it cheaper and spend less time worrying about replacing cooks and car hops. My favorite would be the Joker, a sandwich filled with ham, roast beef, chicken, bacon, cheddar cheese, lettuce and tomatoes, with a fantastic barbaque dipping sauce on the side.
In his late teens, Chris began to read more about Woody Guthrie and take a deeper interest the music of Woody, Pete Seeger and traditional folk. Chris made sure to take his notebook and his memory of events was till fresh enough in the late 90's to build evocative scenes and crisp dialogue. Chris spent the next few years traveling around the country singing in coffeehouses and clubs.
The one about editing a book about chefs, then taking a trip to a restaurant in California is sidesplitting (figuratively, and for Chris, almost literally).
Chris madeA  sure to take his notebook and his memory of events was till fresh enough in the late 90's to build evocative scenes and crisp dialogue. The service wasn't speedy, and the food wasn't necessarily hot by the time a car hop delivered it. The brothers closed the restaurant and redesigned its food-preparation area to work less like a restaurant and more like an automobile assembly line. Without assembly lines, they would not have had a basis for their method of preparing food.
They had to finish the burger by the second mile, and from there it was a race to the finish. An intensified interest in acoustic music was sparked by hearing James Taylor, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Bob Dylan and the band America. First, he said, "Make sure you bring a notebook And your guitar if you can, but if you can't, take your notebook. His sharp-witted humor came across in his performances and would serve him well in the career to come. But sure, that was him, Stephen Foster all shacked up at 601 Bloomfield in the cold year of our Lord 1854.
I bring this up because it's not an easy thing to do and many writers seem clumsy in that area. 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. Instead of using a skilled cook to make food quickly, it used lots of unskilled workers, each of whom did one small, specific step in the food-preparation process.
The winning time from this year 20:19, a respectable time even without a cheeseburger being digested in your stomach. He married his high-school sweetheart and his first daughter, Kristina, was born the day before he graduated high school. Second, when you pull the pin, don't forget to throw the grenade!" Chris found both pieces of advice very useful.
When Chris heard this, he didn't believe it at first, thinking that way of life had ended around 1942.
Some of the songs played in that circle would go on to be included in the recordings of the Fast Folk Musical Magazine, founded by Hardy.
And Mr Marconi, ladies and gentlemen, with his transmitters and wireless signals You might ask where would Francis Albert be without Mr. Speaker Ryan stated, "As you know, this declaration comes about as the result of an oversight deadline set by Congress."Sec.
Along with Jack, Chris was hanging out with Frank Tedesso, David Massengill, Richard Shindell, Richard Julian and Hugh Blumenfeld. He also played guitar and sang around the local circuit.A  Although he would realize later, that a number of elements in his life were leading up to the next chapter in his life, there was one catalyst that sealed the deal. Bauman began regularly attending Hardy's weekly workshops at age 19 and continued coming into the city for Jack's song circle for almost 3 years. 9:15: "And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bride-chamber mourn, as long as the bridegroom is with them?
I also want to thank the Knights of Columbus and all those organizations and leaders around the world who have spoken out on this.
Observing that music could be personal, something you could write yourself and tell your own story in ita€¦ that's when it all clicked. We should fast because fasting was a part and parcel of the life of our Lord, Jesus Christ (Matt. A a€?But now that our government is recognizing this crisis, it needs to do more to stop it.
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. A A Real War Photos.A story of Labor Day weekend 1967 at Fort Wainwright and friendships made long ago.
We used field showers which were 55 gallon drums of water on top of a scaffold looking contraption. Heated by a gasoline heater that provided cold water or scalding water with no middle settings.
Fasting enables one to become a conductor of spiritual power for either blessing others or for bringing blessings to himself.A 7. 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. When unable to pray (like David,) it enables one to be so anointed that his prayer reaches through to God. Fasting intensifies the power of prayer many times so that even short prayers bring results.A 10.
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.
Fasting is the greatest faith producer because the fasting and the faith organ are one and the same . 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.
Anyway, Arch looked at Carleton through his triple thick glasses and exclaimed, "Are you F'n nuts? Fasting is more closely related to faith than any other Christian work, and, in fact, is the very gateway to trust and have faith in God after conversion. 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. Fasting enables one to transcend the natural and takes one quickly into the spiritual realm. 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. Turn right then a short hike cross country until we found the paved road Pauline's was supposed be on.


There is more judgment pronounced upon those given to food addiction than to alcoholic drunkards (in the Bible). Sin is sin whether it comes under the good name of "food" or under some more insidious term. A half hour later Carleton yelled "Keep moving I see a light!" We made the light and it was right beside the highway.
Most Christians are unknowingly bound to the sin of "habit hunger" (actually food addiction).
Not a slow pace but a good long march carrying full gear pace, whistling, shouting cadence counts, telling lies and laughing.
A protracted fast will break this yoke in as little as three daysa€™ time, and will keep an individual free with temperate eating.A 22.
Fasting will undo all sins of intemperance (after Jesusa€™ blood has first washed away our sins).A 23.
Fasting will crucify the flesh and all unnatural desires associated with lusts of any appetite gratification.A 24.
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. Fasting places our natural appetites into a dormant condition, thus physical pleasures are not enjoyed while our flesh becomes sublimated. 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.
A revival spirit comes about inside us, along with the proper burdens that we should carry for others.A 28. I stood at the left end Carleton was next to me then 3 guys who looked pretty much the same. Fasting will change a life of defeat into one of victory and will bring healing and new life to both body and soul.A 29. Fasting, when properly entered into, is the surest method of consecration and sanctification.A 30.
Fasting develops the fruit of the Spirit and enables one to grow into maturity, with matured fruit.A 31. Most Christians, like the children of Israel, are wasting forty years of their lifetime (even with speaking in tongues) without deeper spiritual gift manifestations and without the fruit of the Spirit, just because they fail to fast as they should. 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. Fasting brings one into the misery and sufferings of the fleshly nature in such a manner that he can see himself in the same light that Jesus sees him. 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. Fasting will always enable one to obtain the direction and anointing needed for the work to which he is called.A 37. Fasting will give a well-size or even unlimited capacity to enjoy the riches of heaven, immortality, glory, honor, and power. Fasting and its related terms of expression are mentioned one third as many times in the Bible as prayer. To every two sermons you hear preached on prayer, you should hear a third sermon on fasting.
The author asks the reader this question: How many times has he ever heard a sermon on fasting in his lifetime?
It is truly deplorable that author asks the reader this question: How many times has he ever heard a sermon on fasting in his lifetime? It is truly deplorable that such a major doctrine in both the Old and New Testaments has been so neglected, ignored, and disrespected.A 39.
Two double sized shot glasses hit the well-worn wooden bar, filled in a smooth, much experienced motion. The present-time impartation of the continuous healing fire is being presented today with ever-widening enthusiasm to those who heed this reformation message.A 40 Physical Health Reasons(See Isaiah 58th Chapter)A We are again discussing why we should fast, only this time we are considering the subject from the scientific physical standpoint instead of the spiritual.
Bear in mind that any person, saved or unsaved, can receive the secondary physical blessings of fasting, but only the consecrated child of God can receive the full spiritual blessings.When we go into food abstention, we give the stomach a vacation and vacate into the Spirit.
Nothing can clean up the house of the Holy Spirit more effectively and quickly than giving the stomach a holiday. If the physical benefits were all that were received, they would be worth fasting for, and people would live 25 to 35 years longer (according to some authorities).
Many of Goda€™s people are committing "Slow Suicide" by being continually on a three meal a day stuffing habit, not satisfied with stuffing God and faith out of their lives, but stuffing out their own life years ahead of time as well. Fasting rids the body of practically all the unwanted poisonous filth of autointoxication.A 45. It even cleanses the blood vessels so that the blood circulates all through vessels that may have heretofore been clogged up.
A a€?Holy Shit!a€? Carleton whispered to me.A Midnight sounded on the wind up grandfather clock by the door. Fasting gives the overworked stomach a vacation as well as nearly all other parts of the body.A 50. Oftentimes the very disease itself is turned into food fuel for its own destruction, any value in it being utilized for nourishment.A A 51.
Fasting quickly heals simple diseases such as boils, skin blemishes, indigestion, dyspepsia, constipation (although at first the fast seems to aggravate the condition), rheumatism, fever, anemia, asthma, change of life and irregular periodical functions in females, restoring to normal and healing other diseases. Major fasting will also cure most other major diseases caused by impurities in the system.A 53. Fasting improves the mental faculties, making it easier to think, study, remember, and concentrate. Carleton was new best friends with the funny talking bearded guy and I was too hammered to move.
Fasting eradicates mucous, stringy, ropy fecal material and floating food particles within the body.A 55.
After ten or fifteen days of fasting the individual usually becomes stronger, physically, day by day, after the initial cleansing of the body takes place.A 56.
Fasting will remove ordinary headaches and the coffee or caffeine headache, along with the overuse of coffee or any other abnormal habits.A 58. Fasting will also eradicate tobacco, drug and drinking habits in as little time as three days, water only taken during the fast, with temperate eating habits after the fast. The fog was still dense, we hadn't really considered the fact that 12 miles out is 12 miles back. Some of these are poisonous, contaminated, rotten food particles that have been on the walls of the stomach for months.
A About a half hour later we were sitting beside the road as headlights appeared out of the fog. Some doctors have said that dehydrated food and even worms were found impacted in the walls of the intestinal tract for more than 15 years. This very condition invites disease and demons, and with fasting they are starved out.A 60. Regular fasting prolongs life from twenty to forty years, depending on how much and how properly the fasts are entered into.A 62. Fasting will remove tumors as large as watermelons, also ulcers, cancer and goiters, and will revitalize the glands.A 63. The weakness felt while fasting generally disappears after the worst poisons and pollutions are removed by the house cleaning process.
Fasting, after two weeks, more or less, causes the breath that was so foul during the first of the fast to become clean and pure like that of a child.A 65. Fasting will so purify the skin that often the complexion becomes rosy and like a young persona€™s.A 67. The older a person becomes the more often he should fast, though shorter fasts should be taken.
We drove for a half hour or so, Carleton had started spouting some kind of gibberish that mocked their accents. History and the Bible show us that the men and women who fasted the most lived the longest.
Fasting develops patience, aids temperance, and enables one to have proper spiritual growth as well as physical prosperity.A 70. Fasting draws the intestinal tract up and into its normal size and overcomes and prevents colitis and piles.A 72. The truck started and they disappeared into the fog.A Just as they said we found the railroad track.
Thin persons might not realize that they need to fast, in some cases even more than a heavy person. The thin individual has so many times overworked his organs by overeating, that he is incapable of putting on weight.
I have seen many an underweight person fast from two to three weeks and weigh more after breaking the fast properly than he weighed before fasting. A A My next memory is Saturday afternoon, being jostled roughly and someone yelling at me in a deep southern voice. At first an automatic blood transfusion is set up within the body by the blood remaining from the weight that is lost.
This excess blood goes through the body to bathe the organs and it enters into the head causing sleeplessness for a time. Get out of the rack and enjoy this wonderful God given day!a€? The room was floating in circles in front of me. This, in turn, causes habit hunger (lust hunger) which is entirely different from true hunger.
You poor stupid dumb ass excuse for a soldier you fell for that story?a€? He was almost laughing.
Actually, when folk have great difficulty in fasting, they are under bondage to the food addiction habit in the same manner as those who are under alcohol, drug, tobacco, or other types of bondages. 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.
Fasting should be frequent, to clean and keep clean the temple and home of the Holy Spirit and to keep from food addiction habits.A 80. Couples having family difficulties and discord oftentimes come together in a new understanding with new love and success after a major fast (see I Cor.
When we (really and truly) possess the experiences of both bodyfelt and heartfelt salvation, we have no more sickness, tiredness, or sin, ever, just as long as we continue serving Jesus, the giver of these blessings.It was never intended for man to always be on a two, three, or more meal a day stuffing program. By obtaining the above double blessing experience of getting our body saved as well as our soul, we, then, by fasting become loosened from the food-addiction-bondage. I don't think I said goodbye to Carleton, I may not have even talked with him after that night. After we become weaned away from the food bondage and food slavery addiction appetite, our attentions are focused to the new menu of eating from the life giving menu of the Lorda€™s everlasting body. We, then, lose our natural appetite for things that are corruptible, carnal, temporal and earthly. The next chapter started bad and only got worse.A Robert Carleton and I were never in touch again. Franklin Halla€?Have Faith As A Grain Of Mustard Seed And Nothing Shall Be Impossible Unto You By Prayer And Fastinga€?(St. I looked for him 20 or so years ago and found a cousin who said he lived alone and was doing well. This was `habit hunger`A  --- but real, true hunger demands food to nourish the body and is necessary. His very Life was an example of fasting and prayer.A  Fasting is called a pillar of the Christian religion. Jesus stressed fasting in His Sermon on the Mount in the same manner in which He stressed `giving` and ` prayer` (St. Without weapons training, Miller, a messman third class, jumped into action when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor on Dec 7, 1941.
When the Christ goes away, they were to tarry in Jerusalem and He would give them the Comforter (St.
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.
Let all of us obey His Commandments and Teachings;Let us follow our Jesus all the way through to see results. 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. Fasting would give them the FAITH so they too, could go out and do everything that Jesus had done (St. John 14:12) and because Jesus fasted often and, also, He fasted forty days, then Jesus went out, with all FAITH, to undo the works of Satan.
Jesus said they would do even greater things than He had done but, however, not without fasting because proper fasting brings out the glory of the Spirit and the power of Faith.A Again in St. 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. Matthew, chapter 17, given at the beginning, we are given a great revelation as to WHY JESUS FASTED.He fasted so that He, too, would have the FAITH that removes mountains.
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.
It is the power of prayer amplified many times: Prayer that reaches beyong ordinary prayer.
Prayer That Sees No Defeat!!A One explanation why the average person who has very little faith, cannot understand why fasting gives faith, is for the simple reason that FASTING IS TOO MUCH LIKE FAITH ITSELF. Peace and Semper Fidelis," Joe M., MIA "I can't begin to tell you how happy I was with your photos.
We do not go by sight when we go by faith, and fasting is so much related to FAITH that it is the very threshold of FAITH itself. You really helped me alot." John B, CTA "I appreciate your work and Veterans discount and completing my order so quickly. FAITH IS ILLUMINATED LIKE ATOMIC ENERGY THROUGH FASTING!!A A person without the `fasting faith` is like an automobile without sufficient power to climb a hill. The car will run on the level, but where great power is required, it becomes a failure, like the powerless disciples were, when they had not fasted.A The very weakness that one develops, through fasting, is the building of faith.
When one seems to be groping around in the dark and accomplishing nothing during a fast, that is actually the building of faith.
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.

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. 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.

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.
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.
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. 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. I am the boy with the hammer and the "For Rent" sign, while my brother, walking toward the camera, carries a gas mask.

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.
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. 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!
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.
