Sgt. David Thatcher, the Doolittle raid and World War eleven
Victoria Taft, broadcast and print journalist, radio talk show host, and blogger, recently reported on her Facebook page about a school teacher who taught her students that “WWII” on a veterans cap meant meant he was a veteran of “World War Eleven.”
That teacher is definitely the product of progressive liberal government schools. So will those kids be.
In that regard, I recently reported on the notice of the passing of WWII hero and “Doolittle Raid” veteran Sgt. David Thatcher at age 94 on June 22, 2016. (Facebook/Rees Lloyd Law; twitter @ReesLloydLaw.)
AmericanVeteransCenter.org has provided more, and very interesting, information on Sgt. Thatcher and the history of the “Doolittle Raid.”
You might consider not only reading it, but also providing it to your children, grandchildren, or great-grandchildren. They are definitely not learning about it in their progressive liberal, politically correct government schools.
Come to think of it, you might provide it to your local schools — the teachers of those kids are not only not teaching it, apparently some of them are so ignorant of our history, the Doolittle Raid, and veterans, that they are teaching that “WWII” means “World War Eleven,” as Victoria Taft reported.
God bless those vets of WWII like Sgt. David Thatcher, and the veterans of all wars. It was those veterans, ordinary Americans who made extraordinary sacrifices, who preserved our freedom.
Some 1.4-million of those veterans have given their lives that America might remain free. But, “while some gave all, all gave some.” They should not be forgotten; ignored; or wiped out of history by progressive liberal political correctness, or because someone might be “offended” based on natural origin, or religion.
Every one of those veterans took an oath to defend the Constitution of the United States against “all enemies, foreign and domestic.” America survived those wars, because veterans defeated all foreign enemies.
Now, the question is whether we will survive the political-correctness, and creeping European-style socialism that is a modern domestic enemy destroying America from within.
For God And Country Forever; Surrender To Tyranny–Never!
