Just finished “The Pacific” I never truly watched it until today. Wow is the only word to describe it. Powerful, touching, moving, horrifying and disturbing is what it truly is. Something way and far different than Band of Brothers. But for a good reason, it was a different war for those boys in the pacific, a far more cruel evil war. The J**s were ruthless. But the marines went to a dark place that many could’ve never dreamed of going.

A date which will live in Infamy, the evil Empire of Japan deliberately and premeditatedly attacked the Base and airfields at and around Pearl Harbor. 2,335 people died that day. 1,143 wounded, but others continued to die little by little over time from the injuries of that horrific day. 70 civilians were killed. America would not experience this magnitude of an attack on its soil until 9/11. God rest the souls of the men still trapped in the Arizona and the ones that never made it out of the other ships.

Time to dig in boys, it’s going to be a very long winter🇺🇸

Very tragic news, a small world war 2 fighter attempting a maneuver collided with the B-17 known as the “Texas Raiders” immediately crashing into a fireball on the ground. Everyone has been killed. This historic plane and flight everyone enjoyed will no longer be around. RIP to all the souls. 😞🫡🇺🇸

From Flanders Field in World War 1, to the frozen Ground of Bastogne known as “The Bulge” of World War 2, all the way to the Slippery Slopes of Korea, right down to the slaughterhouse they called Hamburger Hill in Vietnam, taking to the skies during the gulf war, and of course through the rocky terrain of Afghanistan. We as a Nation give thanks to every single man and woman that has put on that uniform. We honor you and appreciate your sacrifices, being away from your family, giving your time to protect others, enduring tons of hardships. We as Americans THANK YOU, on this Veterans Day. 🇺🇸🫡

The battle of the Alamo, often debated around what time the Alamo actually fell because there were only 3 survivors from the defenders. But it’s speculated around 3 AM the battle took place until around 8 am.

🇨🇱 260 Texan Defenders, 32 were native Mexicans.

🇲🇽 6000 Mexican Troops including cavalry and artillery.

Only 3 Texans survived all were women and children (possibly a 4th who was a slave but has been debated as well)

The Alamo fell but it wouldn’t be long before General Santa Anna made a grave mistake by splitting his army and rushing to find General Sam Houston losing most of his artillery along the way.

Sam Houston would surprise the Mexican army at the battle of San Jacinto and defeat them in just 18 minutes. With the cries of REMEMBER THE ALAMO🇨🇱.

Lynn Davis “Buck” Compton, the real one that everyone envies from Band of Brothers. He truly was a man a myth and a legend. A one man army. 🇺🇸
