  • A Normandy riddle is solved

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | 11/11/09 | Torsten Ove
    Thirty years ago, a young Frenchman walking in Normandy came across an American soldier's rusted dog tag among the rocks at Nacqueville, west of the port of Cherbourg. The name read: "Addison W. Arthurs." Etienne Desquesnes, now 46, wanted to return it to the owner or his family. But who was Addison Arthurs? Mr. Desquesnes wrote to the U.S. embassy in Paris but never got an answer. He finally has one now, and just in time for Veterans Day, thanks to some Internet sleuthing by his friend, Bertrand Goucovitch, 49, an amateur D-Day historian, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. After a...
  • Whitmer vetos bill to forgive, refund COVID-19 fines

    Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has vetoed a bill that aimed to forgive state-issued COVID-19 fines if the employer corrected the violation. The bill would have also required the state to refund companies that already paid fines. Whitmer vetoed House Bill 4501 on Veteran’s Day, saying it would violate the minimum requirements set by the federal government. "When a state fails to maintain the minimum standard, it loses control over enforcement of workplace standards," the Democratic governor wrote.

    President Joe Biden referred to legendary baseball pitcher Satchel Paige during his Veterans’ Day speech on Thursday referring to him as “the great negro.” “You know, I’ve adopted the attitude of the great negro at the time, pitcher in the negro leagues, went on to become a great pitcher in the pros, in the Major League Baseball after Jackie Robison, his name was Satchel Paige,” Biden said as he began his speech.

    The Veterans Day holiday this week, coming just a few months after the national humiliation that was resident Joe Biden's botched Afghanistan withdrawal, ought to serve as a wake-up for Washington's myopic foreign policy and national security establishment, as well as our decadent ruling class more broadly. The best way to honor our veterans in the aftermath of the Afghanistan boondoggle would be to finally end the delusional fantasy that America can, let alone should, attempt to cavalierly export its values unto foreign lands. For decades, varying stripes of neoconservatives, neoliberals and humanitarian interventionists have dominated America's sclerotic foreign policy...

    President Biden on Thursday laid a wreath at Arlington National Cemetery’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and commemorated Veterans Day with a speech hailing the “unrelenting bravery and dedication” of America’s service members, including his late son Beau and the recently deceased Colin Powell and former Sen. Max Cleland. On the 100th anniversary of the tomb’s dedication, Biden spoke of his friendships with Powell and Cleland and how his own family understood the experience of veterans through his late son’s deployments.

    Beloved, as we remember today those men and women who serve and who once served in our American military on this Veterans Day, we offer them all a great thank you of appreciation! Where would our nation be without our brave military? Another side of the coin, the ETERNAL Spiritual one in which we want to look at is the spiritual military service in which Almighty God has called all His redeemed blood brought saints into (1 Cor. 1:26-29, Eph. 2:1-14, 2 Tim. 2:1-5, Rev. 1:5)! We as the redeemed of Almighty God and heirs of ETERNAL LIFE, through the...

    Today we celebrate Veterans Day, a holiday that honors all American veterans, living or dead, who served their country honorably during war or peacetime. On the “11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month” in 1918, the Allied nations and Germany agreed to an armistice, ending World War I, which is generally regarded as “the war to end all wars.” It became known as “Armistice Day,” and is commemorated by many countries. One year later, in Nov. 1919, President Woodrow Wilson declared Nov. 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day. On June 4, 1926, Congress passed a...

    Gary Sinise's iconic role as Lt. Dan in Forrest Gump provided the world a glimpse into a soldier fighting his post-war mental monsters with alcohol and anguish. Although a fictitious character, Lt. Dan's use of alcohol to drown out the psychological and physical pain is a reality for thousands of service members who served here and abroad. In the 1990s, we trained for a conventional war based on a Russian threat. Conventional forces battled on training grounds against imaginary forces called Krasnovians. The military focused on large-scale at a distance war, not up close and personal like the Vietnam War....

    In addition to today being the 2nd anniversary of its founding, Veterans Day is always an appropriate day to share information and updates on #HELP22--a growing movement to help address the startling and unacceptable fact that, on average, as many as 22 of our nation’s veterans take their own lives each day. The more I learned of this the more I felt a moral mandate to help draw attention to it and to bring what resources I have to bear to help address it. I thought about my network and reached out to three of the most caring and gifted...

    As Veterans’ Day arrives, it is important for those who have never served to take a moment to understand the solitary world of a vet. Millions of vets are and have been successful in all endeavors. They are doctors, lawyers, business people and a thousand other professions. Not all have PTSD; not all are the troubled, brooding, street corner homeless guy, although they exist and need help desperately. No matter how successful a vet might be materially, more often than not, vets are often alone, mentally and spiritually each day and for the rest of their lives. Vets’ stories are...

    On this episode of The Resistance Library Podcast, Sam and Dave discuss Veterans Day. Veterans Day, celebrated each year on November 11th, was first celebrated on this same date in 1919, under the name of Armistice Day. The holiday was named in remembrance of the temporary ceasefire that brought about the unofficial end to World War I when, the year before, the Allied forces entered into an armistice with the Germans, stopping live battle on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. A year later, and nearly five months after the official end of...

    Many Americans have no idea why we celebrate Veterans Day on November 11. Those who know that the holiday began as Armistice Day typically think of it as a day of victory and peace. However, for those on the ground in Europe the last twenty-four hours before the cessation of hostilities on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, that day was nothing less than hell on earth.

    First, a little history. World War I ("The Great War"), which claimed the lives of nearly 40 million human beings (including nearly 117,000 Americans killed and more than 300,000 sick and wounded), ended with a mutually accepted cease-fire on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. One year later, Nov. 11, 1919, U.S. President Woodrow Wilson declared the date to be "Armistice Day." Many of our allies in "The War to End All Wars" called it "Remembrance Day." In 1926, Congress resolved to make every "Armistice Day" an occasion of "national observance." In 1938,...
