  1. The US Flag raising moment at Iwo Jima is an iconic moment in US Military history.

    “The United States Marine Corps War Memorial (Iwo Jima Memorial) is a national memorial located in Arlington County, Virginia, in the United States. The memorial was dedicated in 1954 to all Marines who have given their lives in defense of the United States since 1775.
    It is located in Arlington Ridge Park within the George Washington Memorial Parkway, near the Ord-Weitzel Gate to Arlington National Cemetery and the Netherlands Carillon. The memorial was turned over to the National Park Service in 1955.”

    “The war memorial was inspired by the iconic 1945 photograph of six Marines raising a U.S. flag atop Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II …” …

    “Dedicated To The Marine Dead Of All Wars, And Their Comrades Of Other Services Who Fell Fighting Beside Them.” …

  2. We operate a small organic teaching farm near the outskirts of Eugene Oregon… near the east coast of the Pacific.

    The weekly local branch outlet of the marxists newspaper-programming *conglomerate is The Eugene Weekly.
    It hits the stands each Thursday, more-or-less, depending on if the hippie delivery drivers feel like it.

    I read it today, Tuesday, giving you some idea of its importance in my schedule.
    This afternoon, I read the (alleged…) letters to the editor.
    Some headlines:
    * The Price Of Too Much Freedom (“Lives without restraint are eventually ruinous.”)

    * Vaccination Needs A National Policy

    * Nothing Clean About Natural Gas (about the Arctic Vortex freezing folks in ‘fly-over country’)

    * Support Vegan Options In Hospitals (the diatribe starts with edible food for convalescents, switches to some proposed ‘law’, switches again to the (alleged) benefits of consuming plants, then switches to the “incredible importance” to the sender)

    * A Meditation On Saint Ruth (a local marxist bureaucrat)

    * Republican Reboot: The S##t Party (hoping to change the name of that political party to ‘Panicky White People’)

    * Seniors Need To Be Vaccinated Now (about “most seniors” cannot operate telephones nor computers, “many seniors” cannot let other seniors visit, “all seniors” worked decades to pay into government accounts, and some other unprovable ‘factoid generalizations’)

    followed by an editorial:

    * Repeal The Federal Legislation Which Grants Immunity To The Arms Industry
    (“Military weapons were never available to the public until recently…the NRA and arms industry [advocates] a distorted view of [enumerated Constitutional restrictions on bureaucrats])

    In my wildest dreams, I cannot imagine a halfway point with that mentality.
    I wish their slogan “co-exist” could be possible, but the how-to escapes me.
    The Eugene Weekly is “free”, supported by small business owners purchasing advertising space.
    I wish no ill-will on anybody, but prior to ‘this phase of this Economic Lock-Down’, The Eugene Weekly was hefty, usually twenty or thirty pages.
    Since ‘this phase of this Economic Lock-Down’, The Eugene Weekly is down to six pages.
    * I use the word ‘conglomerate’ because dozens of college towns offer identical “free” weeklies.
    This appears to be a well-funded major enterprise across multiple states.

    1. I agree, Marge. We live in a small fishing community on the shores of a Great Lake. Our local newspaper is a spin-off from the paper of the nearest large city. It too has only 6 pages. The only thing better about ours is that thankfully there isn’t a “letters to the editor” section. The “news” in it is all quite left-slanted. The ads for “upcoming events” are usually submitted so late that they occurred several days before the paper is released.

      It does make good kindling for the wood stove.

  3. I noticed the date of death for Capt. Davis.

    Sure enough, he was killed in that battle. He set a very excellent model for preparedness.

    In the months leading up to the Revolution, Davis set unusually high standards for his company in terms of equipment, training, and preparedness. His company was selected to lead the advance on the British Regulars during the Battle of Concord because his men were entirely outfitted with bayonets.[1][2] During the American advance on the British at the Old North Bridge, Davis was among the first killed and was the first American officer to die in the Revolution.

    Carry on
