It is with a heavy heart that I share with you the passing of my good friend, WWII veteran Glenn Christians. He was 95 years old. Mr. Christians served in the US Navy as a signalman aboard ships crossing the Atlantic. He was sunk three times by German U-Boats but miraculously survived. He was also part of a secret operation to deliver ammunition and supplies to the French Resistance. On that mission, he was the sole survivor. ➖
For the sacrifices he made during the war, the government of France awarded him the Legion of Honor.
➖
His stories and memory will never be forgotten. Rest In Peace…
➖
Listen to his interview and learn more about his service:

This medal was awarded to all surviving merchant mariners in 1992 by the Russian government for bringing food and suppliers into the northern cities of Mermansk and Archangel.  These supplies helped our Russian allies survive the fight with Hitler and the Nazis.  This route was incredibly dangerous as it passed Germany and was heavily mined. My grandfather’s ship hit a mine and went down. He was picked up by a French ship and dropped in Scotland. 50 years later when the Cold War ended the Russian government recognized the sacrifice of the U.S. Merchant Marines that sailed on this route.  The ceremony was held in Baltimore on the last surviving Liberty ship from the war.  #greatestgeneration #wwiihistory #merchantmarine #merchantmarineacademy #merchantmariners #remember #wwii

I had the privilege of sitting down with another American hero this morning, Korean War veteran, Doug Jones. Mr. Jones grew up dirt poor, in Alabama, during a time of great racial discrimination. Despite the obstacles in his life, he graduated high school and joined the recently desegregated Air Force. He then spent a year in Korea, working in the peninsula’s frigid weather, on aircraft, from 1952 to 1953. “In 1951, I was willing to die for my country”, he said. “Today, I am still willing to die for my country.” Overcoming poverty, war, and unimaginable discrimination, Doug Jones is a true American, and hero, in every sense of the word! #korea #koreanwar #hero #veteran #airforce #jimcrow #patriot #hero #army #koreanconflict #american #history #ww2 #wwii #greatestgeneration

That dude in the purple shirt is Ssgt Gene Tabbot, US Army Air Corps. He was a C47 crew chief and flew in the China/Burma/India theater during WWII.  The stories are insane. In. Sane. Honored to spend some time with him. #greatestgeneration #WWII #ArmyAirCorps #C47 #Army #Veteran

Found my grandfather’s Good Conduct Medal and Asiatic Pacific Campaign ribbon.

On this date date in 1944 the 81st Wildcat 323 division was landing on the Ulithi Atoll. I believe it Most likely my grandfather was involved in the landings as part of the 2nd Battalion. Little to no contact was made on these islands and soon they would head to Peleliu. Ulithi was important to us as an anchorage by the navy for future operations staging. Pic from "the 81st infantry Wildcat division "

It is with a saddened heart I report that American Legion Dyer-Gunnell Post 180 lost a steadfast and dedicated Legionnaire yesterday, Burt Crump.  Burt served as Post 180's baseball coach for 28 years as well as supported all our programs.  Pictured below is a photo taken last year with him and I cutting the Marine Corps birthday cake.

Just a few more pictures from our recent visit to DOCK Preschool for Grandparent Hour. These ladies are a treasure. And the sweet little guy, who helped Ms. Jackie out of the room, was pretty great, too! ❤

We LOVE "Grandparent Hour"--our intergenerational program with DOCK Preschool and Character Kids After school Program. We visit several times a month to read, play, interact and build relationships. Then they visit us to do special activites and service projects. Such a fun and meaningful way to bridge the generations!

There are so many amazing organizations that I stand 110% behind and support with all of my heart from animal shelters to special needs services to nature and history preservation but after getting involved and seeing first hand the difference this volunteer run nonprofit makes to our nation’s heroes, I can’t help but promote Honor Flight DFW today. ❤️🇺🇸

Roughly 75 years ago, hundreds of thousands of men left everything and everyone they loved, to fight for our safety and freedom.
In just 9 short days, you will have the opportunity to meet over 30 of them... Don’t let this chance pass you by! They won’t always be here for you to thank.

Here’s my original vintage inspired “Operation Market Garden” travel poster for the Allied Airborne drop into Holland on September 17th, 1944.

Market Garden was a gamble and perhaps the boldest Allied failure of the war; if it had succeeded it would have shortened the war in Europe. With Dutch bridges in Allied hands, the path into the Northern German Plain would have been open, allowing the British second army to outflank the Siegfried Line and cross into Germany just 20 miles from Arnhem. 
Montgomery could have pushed north-east into the Ruhr before the winter and clear a route directly to Berlin, which could have fallen to the western allies rather than the Soviets. The soldiers cry “End the war in 44” could have been reality. 
If you’re interested in this design, you can find a link in my bio. Thanks everyone.
