A US soldier with an M60 passes by a blazing village. Vietnam War.
The Vietnam War, was a conflict that occurred in Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. It was the second of the Indochina Wars and was officially fought between North Vietnam and the government of South Vietnam. The North Vietnamese army was supported by the Soviet Union, China, and other communist allies; the South Vietnamese army was supported by the United States, South Korea, the Philippines, Australia, Thailand and other anti-communist allies. The war would last approximately 19 years and would also form the Laotian Civil War as well as the Cambodian Civil War, which resulted in all 3 countries becoming communist states in 1975. Today on Thanksgiving, be thankful for the sacrifice of the casualties of war.
#MerryChristmas y'all!! What an amazing, emotional, and irreplaceable evening!! AmericanLegionPost137 Auxiliary unit, 40&8, and (sorry I cannot remember the other posts the represented) others delivered 100 blankets to veterans at the VA Hopsptial in Gainsville. We stopped for dinner then on the way home we went "deer hunting" though it was a different type of shooting we did lol! I am so honored that I was able to take this trip. I urge everyone to become involved in the monthly trips to the hospital when we usually play bingo with the patients! #LivingHistory#Volunteer#VolunteerLife#VolunteerProud#ProudVolunteer#Veterans#WeOweADebtOfGratitude#ThankAVet @AmericanLegionPost137

This day 77 years ago our nation had a surprise attack on the Hawaiian islands. Causing mass casualties. I would like to thank every veteran. And morn the deaths of thousands of soldiers and 6 ships lost. #thankavet#remember
December 7th 1941, a date which will live in infamy. Today, Pearl Harbor Day the Catalyst that started it all. With war comes change. Today we remember. Remember what we stood for. What we fought for. Most of all we remember those we lost. Pearl Harbor is more than a movie, it's a movement. Never forget!
77 years ago the Japanese carried out an attack on our naval base in Pearl Harbor Hawaii. The results of this event led us into WW2 and for four long years our brothers and sisters fought for our freedom and to defend our country from foreign enemies. Today we remember those who lost their lives that day. We remember their service and sacrifice and thank The Ones who answered the call to defend this great nation. December 7th, 1941, a date that will forever live in infamy. #neverforget#pearlharbor#navy#thankavet
As we remember the brave men and women who were injured or lost their lives 77 years ago, it's a sobering reminder that "freedom" isn't free. We honor the memories of all those who sacrificed in order for others to thrive! #PearlHarbor#GodBlessTheUSA#NeverForget#ThankAVet
THANK YOU to our WWII veterans who fought, died and survived that ‘day of infamy.’ ❤️🇺🇸I knew many Pearl Harbor Survivors who are all long gone now but my life was enriched for having known them and my life is my life because of them. I will be forever grateful and will never ever forget their bravery, sense of duty and love of country. This is also the day my Grandaddy died. He was in the Army and gave shots to newly enlisted in Arkansas but stayed stateside because he was deaf in one ear. #pearlharborday#wwii#hawaii#army#navy#thankavet#respect#honor#history#neverforget#pearlharbor#GREATESTGENERATION
RED Friday - Dec 7 - Pearl Harbor Day - live a life that honors those sacrifices. My great uncle is still on the Arizona along with many of his shipmates. They didn’t have a choice, they did their job and paid the ultimate price. ——————————————————
You have choices - you can decide to live the F out of your life or you can choose to be a victim or a follower. When you hit a low spot, a valley, a trough in your wave... learn from it and bounce back. Channel it and figure out why it happened. ——————————————————
I am a hard person - that comes from being focused, stoic, rigid - but, many times, that doesn’t cover what is going on inside. I have low points and they suck. No. Doubt. About. It. ——————————————————
When I hit those low points I take the time to refocus and figure out why: * Can I handle it right then? * Do I need to compartmentalize it for later? * Is it out of my control?
Whatever it is I ADDRESS it and handle it. You cannot let low points sit and fester - it’s never good in the long run. ——————————————————
