How about this flyby to kickoff the new year? My pal Stephen @wingnut206 filmed this Corsair near Sacramento. It’s an Oshkosh grand champion that was listed for sale for $4mil+. Looks like they got it. In the Korean War, Brown/Hudner’s squadron always flew with at least one drop tank, whereas this plane carries two. Thanks @combat_learjet for spotting this! #f4ucorsair #corsair #flynavy

Stars Across Alaska Gala - WarBIRD Tour!
Old Hollywood entertainment, supper, and the best auction event in Alaska!
A little off topic, but so cool I had to share. So much inspiration comes from those old warbirds!
I’ve been keeping this one quiet for a while now and thought I might explode. Now I can tell the truth.
Since I was a young boy, Star Wars has been one of my life’s great passions. I read everything I could about that universe, and continue to do so today. Recently, with the debut of Disney+, I was contracted to write a trio of articles about that galaxy far, far away. I don’t consider myself a great writer, just a serviceable one doing the best he can to improve, but today I am soaring because I achieved one of my life goals: I got paid to write about Star Wars. I am so very, very thankful.
I've had my hands full!
Judy, a purebred pointer, was the mascot of several ships in the Pacific, and was captured by the Japanese in 1942 and taken to a prison camp. There she met Aircraftsman Frank Williams, who shared his small portion of rice with her.
Judy raised morale in the POW camp, and also barked when poisonous snakes, crocodiles or even tigers approached the prisoners. When the prisoners were shipped back to Singapore, she was smuggled out in a rice sack, never whimpering or betraying her presence to the guards.
The next day, that ship was torpedoed. Williams pushed Judy out of a porthole in an attempt to save her life, even though there was a 15-foot drop to the sea. He made his own escape from the ship, but was then recaptured and sent to a new POW camp.
He didn't know if Judy had survived, but soon he began hearing stories about a dog helping drowning men reach pieces of debris after the shipwreck. And when Williams arrived at the new camp, he said: "I couldn’t believe my eyes! As I walked through the gate, a scraggly dog hit me square between the shoulders and knocked me over. I’d never been so glad to see the old girl!"
They spent a year together at that camp in Sumatra. "Judy saved my life in so many ways," said Williams. "But the greatest of all was giving me a reason to live. All I had to do was look into those weary, bloodshot eyes and ask myself: 'What would happen to her if I died?' I had to keep going."
Once hostilities ceased, Judy was then smuggled aboard a troopship heading back to Liverpool. In England, she was awarded the Dickin Medal (the "Victoria Cross" for animals) in May 1946. Her citation reads: "For magnificent courage and endurance in Japanese prison camps, which helped to maintain morale among her fellow prisoners, and also for saving many lives through her intelligence and watchfulness".
At the same time, Frank Williams was awarded the PDSA's White Cross of St. Giles for his devotion to Judy. Frank and Judy spent a year after the war visiting the relatives of English POWs who had not survived, and Frank said that Judy "always provided a comforting presence to the families."
When Judy finally died at the age of 13, Frank spent two months building a granite and marble memorial in her memory, which included a plaque describing her life story.
Here is a book that tells more about their story...https://smile.amazon.com/No-Better-Friend-Extraordinary-Survival/dp/0316337056/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=no+better+friend&qid=1571074671&sr=8-1
These research finds are incredible!
76 years ago, this week, the Battle of Attu ended. Next up, Kiska! And the Aleutian Campaign continued.
The weather was as much an enemy as ever there was . . . and it took as much courage to face it as it did to engage the Imperial Army and Imperial Navy . . . the Alaska Veterans Museum continues to tell the stories of the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Coast Guardsmen, Merchant Marine - the units, individuals, volunteers - men and women who stepped forward to answer the call of our Nation and Alaska.
May we never, ever forget their valor, dedication, and commitment; their selfless sacrifices in the face of unyielding conditions and unrelenting enemies.
Come visit, learn, and enjoy a truly rich history filled with the kind of heroes you'll see in this film.
(Many thanks to friend and colleague Ted Spencer and the Prince William Sound Museum for sharing of this video).
