bourneagain87 #earnthis Today I honor the #fallen among our allies. As #America has gone to #war over the years, #warriors from around the globe have joined in the #battleforfreedom. The #UnitedStates has 55 countries listed as #allies. From as early as the #AmericanRevolutionaryWar our friends have risen up to help us #fight. Pictured here are the #British #SAS, the #French #COS, the #Israeli #Sayeret, and the #Canadian #SOR. To our fallen allies who died #indefenseofliberty, I #thankyou. #21daysofgratitude 4d

bourneagain87 #earnthis Today I honor the #fallen who have served in the #UnitedStates #Navy. Founded October 13, 1775, the navy has been one of the finest fighting forces in the world. From its humble beginnings as a collection of frigates and sloops it grew into the most #elite naval force in the world. They protect the #blessedshore on the #waves, under the waves, in the #air and on #land. Literally thousands of #sailors have given their lives #indefenseofliberty. From the #AmericanRevolutionaryWar to the #WarOnTerror they have kept our #enemies #awakeatnight and ensure that we can enjoy the #blessingsoffreedom. To every sailor who never made it back to shore, who made #theultimatesacrifice, I #thankyou. #21daysofgratitude 6d

theriom.rasputin A photo of the log homes in historic Hanna's Town. (in Sepia.) Founded in 1773 it acted as the first Seat of Westmoreland County and the first English court west of the Allegheny Mountains.
Hanna's Town Resolves were written and signed here in May, 1775. This document is one of the most direct challenges to British authority preceding the Declaration of Independence.

bourneagain87 #earnthis Today I honor the #fallen of the #UnitedStates #Army. Founded June 14, 1775 they have taken part in every major combat action from the #AmericanRevolutionaryWar to the #WarOnTerror. Whether jumping out of #planes, #fastroping into action, rolling in #armor, or just running and #shooting, literally hundreds of thousands of #soldiers have given their lives #indefenseofliberty. To those who made #theultimatesacrifice among them, I #thankyou. #21daysofgratitude 2w

bourneagain87 #earnthis Today I salute the memory of #UnitedStates #Army #Rangers. They have seen roles in combat since the #AmericanRevolutionaryWar. Officially formed in #1943, they have been an essential part in U.S. #combatoperations. They are #specops #warriors who are responsible as a #QRF or #quickresponseforce. Rangers frequently are responsible for downed pilot #rescue. They also possess one of the lowest #combatdeathrates in the #armedforces. And yet, many have given their lives #indefenseofliberty. #thankyou. #21daysofgratitude. #rangersleadtheway 3w

ben_judah Historical amnesia seems to come about at the most convenient times. Lets not Forget! This "Tea Party" became the catalyst for what was to become the American Revolution. Had the Sons of Liberty cared more about the destruction of tea/property than their resistance against Great Britain there wouldn't even be an American Flag to do an #EricSheppardChallenge on, whether you like it or not! #SonsOfLiberty #AmericanHistory #Baltimore #SoRaven #Simone #IWantedToBeANavySeal#AmericanRevolutionaryWar 4w

elmuseodelmar ¿Cuánto sabemos del determinante papel que jugó Puerto Rico y España en la Guerra de Independencia de Estados Unidos?
Gracias a la revista divulgativa de historia naval en Internet "Todo a Babor" (http://www.todoababor.es/) y a la obra del pintor Carlos Parrilla Penagos (http://www.carlosparrillapenagos.es/) podemos acercarnos a un capítulo de la historia cargado de paradojas que a muchos nos ha pasado desapercibido hasta ahora.

Captura en el Caribe

El navío “San Juan Nepomuceno” al costado de la fragata británica “Clyde” que se bate sin esperanza ante la superioridad de su oponente, al fondo el bergantín también llamado “San Juan Nepomuceno” vigila la acción después de haber contribuido en su persecución y alcance. El 14 de diciembre de 1781, en plena guerra de Independencia de los Estados Unidos contra Inglaterra, y después de zarpar de Puerto Rico el “San Juan Nepomuceno” capturó esta fragata británica y represó otra anteriormente norteamericana. No serían sus únicas presas pues al año siguiente, y tras la conquista de Pensacola, capturó otra fragata, la “London”. Como vemos en la imagen el navío luce el esquema de colores por entonces dominante en la Real Armada, así como el empleo de entena en lugar de botavara en el palo de mesana.

post_proletkult Good read. <gowans.wordpress.com> is a pretty good blog resource. Posts aren't too difficult to read and cover a fairly broad range of topics with a leftist perspective. Some of the author's opinions are a bit too Leninist and forgiving towards some controversial figures, such as Mugabe, but this read is definitely worth it. #antiimperialism #anticapitalism #iraq #afghanistan #libya #iran #NATO #socialism #subvert #spanishcivilwar #americanrevolutionarywar #cuba #angola #southafrica 2mon
