mpkopack Seventy-six years ago today, the first flight of the F4U Corsair - WWII's "Bent Winged Bird". This shot isn't nearly that old - last fall in Smithfield, NC. #corsair #wwii #airshow #aviation 8min

yeomanphoto "Day 3 of the Memorial Day tour with Matt Yeoman took us to meet 93-year-old Doug Brown of Franklin, WV. Doug went ashore in the second wave at Omaha Beach on D-Day. He was awarded three Purple Hearts and two Bronze Stars, plus a commendation from France. Doug is a genuinely kind and thoughtful man as well as a wonderful story teller. Everyone should take this kind of tour to learn what the meaning of Memorial Day is meant to be." -Dale Hartnett 26min

that40skid Because I really can't get enough of this guy:
This is Captain Richard Dinning, and this is a photo of him back in the day, just after he'd been commissioned as Second Lieutenant in the Army Air Corps. As you can see, he wasn't without his looks. So handsome. #ww2 #wwii #worldwarii #worldwartwo #worldwar2 #secondworldwar #1940s #greatestgeneration #military #history #historical #handsome #suave #handsome #thenandnow #backintheday #veteransthenandnow #wwiivet #ww2vet #veteran #armyaircorps #usaaf #b17 #flyingfortress #bomberpilot #captain

vpauld54 A page from a scrapbook my father started to document his experiences in Europe during WWII. My dad was an air observer for the 252nd field artillery group of the ninth army. Thinking of him on this Memorial Day weekend and of all those brave men and women who served to keep our country free. #memorialday #wwii #nintharmy #campluckystrike #normandy 24min

nolanryan702 Beautiful brick walkway memorial in the courtyard at #pacificwar museum, another shot from my trip there back in December. I get lost in my thoughts when I go back through this series of photos on my phone, which I refuse to delete. I want to read about them, know who they were and what their story was, how can I make the world better? What can I do to give back? What have I done to earn this? Too many thoughts, all we can do it is take it a day at a time and try to be the best person we can be, in this crazy world. 🏼️#ww2 #WWII #fredericksburg #memorialdayweekend 32min

historicalhappenings Entry three hundred sixty-nine: The canteen opened at 6:30 and the WWII vets stared arriving. There were about 19 WWII veterans in attendance as well as many active duty military assisting them. (You have to admit that guys look real swell in uniform.) :) #WW2 #WWII #worldwar2 #worldwarii #greatestgeneration #army #1940s #livinghistory #WWIIvets #usoshow 36min

historicalhappenings Entry three hundred sixty-eight: Haley and I both wore pearl necklaces that belonged to our grandma. She passed away in January so it was special to have something of hers to wear last night. #WW2 #WWII #worldwarii #worldwar2 #livinghistory #reenactors #usoshow #1940s #WW2reenacting #WWIIreenacting 47min

xtexas_boyx This pisses me off, Obama makes time to go to the funerals of criminals but not the funerals of fallen police men or service members and now he's laying a wreath at the Hiroshima memorial in Japan, after we dropped a nuke on them, after they ambushed Pearl Harbor. I don't see any Japanese emperors in Hawaii saying sorry. That was an act of war and it should be remembered as such, Theodore Roosevelt said "walk soft but pack a big stick and never walk away" and that's just what happened, we did not want to enter the war, we walked softly. Japan attacked Pearl Harbor killing 2,403 Americans. So we didn't walk away, we showed them our 'big stick' and bombed the shit out of them. It's not something to apologize about. Obama should be at the Memorial Day memorial going on in his back yard, the Washington, D.C. Mall, not in Japan. #memorial #memorialday #war #wwii #obama #fuckobama #hiroshima #pearlharbor 48min
