Preparedness Notes for Monday — October 7, 2019

October 7th is the day that we remember the 96 American POWs from Wake Island that were executed in 1943 on the orders of the commander of the Japanese garrison on the island, Rear Admiral Shigematsu Sakaibara. The execution of those American POWs who were blindfolded and shot in cold blood, remains one of the more brutal episodes of the war in the Pacific.

  1. INTERNATIONAL COMMITTEE OF THE RED CROSS (ICRC) has a site that says, “What are the rules of war and why do they matter?”
    “The rules of war, or international humanitarian law (as it is known formally) are a set of international rules that set out what can and cannot be done during an armed conflict.”
    [The ‘Rules’ and information is given.]

    In war, the treatment and fate of many soldiers and civilians can be horrific. … The actual ‘rules’ for war, is the Natural Law encoded by God into the human heart.
    Villains only worry about being >caught and punished. Villains make their own rules, and villains listen to the devil.

    In God We Trust. The official motto of the USA: “The modern motto of the United States of America, as established in a 1956 law signed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, is “In God we trust”. The phrase first appeared on U.S. coins in 1864.” (Wikipedia)
    …….. [We live in a good country; blessed by God. It’s not just prosperity; but also a country where the majority of people follow the Natural Law.]

      1. US MARINE CORPS VALUES ~ [The Marines >live it. ‘Once a Marine Always a Marine.’]

        Honor: This is the bedrock of our character. It is the quality that empowers Marines to exemplify the ultimate in ethical and moral behavior: to never lie, cheat, or steal; to abide by an uncompromising code of integrity; to respect human dignity; and to have respect and concern for each other. It represents the maturity, dedication, trust, and dependability that commit Marines to act responsibly, be accountable for their actions, fulfill their obligations, and hold others accountable for their actions.

        Courage: The heart of our Core Values, courage is the mental, moral, and physical strength ingrained in Marines that sees them through the challenges of combat and the mastery of fear, and to do what is right, to adhere to a higher standard of personal conduct, to lead by example, and to make tough decisions under stress and pressure. It is the inner strength that enables a Marine to take that extra step.

        Commitment: This is the spirit of determination and dedication within members of a force of arms that leads to professionalism and mastery of the art of war. It promotes the highest order of discipline for unit and self and is the ingredient that instills dedication to Corps and country 24 hours a day, pride, concern for others, and an unrelenting determination to achieve a standard of excellence in every endeavor. Commitment is the value that establishes the Marine as the warrior and citizen others strive to emulate.
