FILIPINO AMERICAN AIRBORNE PARATOOPERS ASSIGNED TO THE 1st RECONNAISSANCE BATTALION (SPECIAL), U.S. ARMY, 1943-1945: Approximately eight hundred (800) volunteers were chosen from the U.S. Army's 1st & 2nd Filipino Infantry Regiments at Camps Beale and Cooke, California in 1943. They were shipped to Camp "X" at Tabragalba near Brisbane, Australia where they were instructed in "special mission" or "clandestine" training by members of the Australian Army. Captain C. Earl Walter, a veteran of the 82nd Airborne Division in the European Theater of Operations (ETO) established a three (3) week Basic Airborne School. It was mirrored after the jump school program of instruction (POI) at Fort Benning, Georgia. This course included everything except tower training. A total of sixty-six (66) Filipino American soldiers assigned to the 5217th Reconnaissance Battalion (Provisional) graduated. The unit was later redesignated the 1st Reconnaissance Battalion (Special). These "Pinoys" now became qualified to wear the silver airborne wings in November 1944. Here is a photo of the members of the airborne section with Captain Walter in front of the "Bahala Na Club" House in Hollandia, New Guinea. This picture is from the book "Lost in Shangri-La" written by Mictchell Zuckhoff. Included are more photos of the airborne section. — at Hollandia, New Guinea "LAGING UNA" - "ALWAYS FIRST" "SULUNG" - "FORWARD" "BAHALA NA!" - "COME WHAT MAY!" "IN HONOR OF OUR FATHERS!"

While these Finns were patrolling on the Tuoppajärvi Lake on the 22nd of August 1941, their comerads belonging to the Infantry Regiment 53 were struggling surrounded on the southern side of the Jelovoje Lake. . There were some 600 wounded in the pocket, so the Finns planned their evacuation using aircraft, but for some reason the attempt failed - very likely due the lack of suitable planes. . The Task Force F was ordered to issue reinforcements from the Uhtua sector, but they'll arriving will take at least two days. .SA-kuva #ww2 #ww2history #ww2photo #ww2finland #continuationwar #jatkosota #ir53 #jr53 #Secondworldwar #worldwartwo #worldwarii #worldwar2 #tuoppajärvi #jelovoje #patrol #partio #elefantbössa #norsupyssy #l39 #järvimaisema #kiestinki #kestenga 256 ♡ 0 ✍ August 22

Going to take a bit of a risk here and paint the transparent 'metal' framing of the canopy and turrets using enamel as opposed to the orthodox acrylic method. To minimise chances of the paint bleeding onto the 'glass' areas, I'll first be applying some Humbrol Maskol liquid latex solution to the areas I want protected before using Humbrol enamel No.117 'US Light Green' and No.65 'Aircraft Blue' paints. #Airfix #AirfixModels #AirfixModelKit #WWIIModels #WorldWarII #WWII #WorldWar2 #WW2 #WW2History #RoyalAirforce #RAF #BattleOfBritain #Luftwaffe #HeinkelHe111 #Aviation #Aeronautics #ScaleModel #ScaleModelling #172scale 45 ♡ 0 ✍ August 22

Viernes 21 de agosto de 2009. Una obra maestra del cine hacía su estreno en Norteamérica. A Chile llegaría un mes y medio después (la vi en el cine el viernes 23 de octubre de 2009). Hasta el día de hoy sigo lamentando que no la hayan premiado como Mejor Película en los Oscar (aunque es sabido que esa premiación ha cometido una infinidad de errores en sus 89 años de historia, además de que nunca ha sabido valorar a Tarantino como lo merece). En cualquier caso, una maravilla de cinta. A ocho años de su estreno, rindo homenaje a la tremenda película Inglourious Basterds (en Latinoamérica, Bastardos sin Gloria; en España, Malditos Bastardos) 👏🎂🎁🎈🎬📺🎥👏 #inglouriousbasterds #film #movie #drama #war #worldwarii #hollywood #quentintarantino #bradpitt #melanielaurent #christophwaltz #dianekruger #happybirthday #homenajesbacanes #cumpleañosdepelículasbacanes 23 ♡ 0 ✍ August 22

This past weekend I had the honor and privilege to speak to the #88thInfantryDivision – the “Blue Devils,” so named by the enemy because of their ferocious fighting skill. Saturday marked #100years as a division serving our nation; quite a remarkable achievement. The #BlueDevils served in France during the last year of World War I, and slugged their way up the Italian peninsula through some of the bloodiest fighting of #WorldWarII. Today they are the 88th Regional Support Command made up of incredibly dedicated reserve officers and soldiers committed to defending our nation. The Blue Devils of World War II had strong connections to the #MonumentsMen in Italy, in particular Monuments Officer Deane Keller, something I had a chance to discuss during my remarks on Saturday. Much to my surprise, Major-General Patrick Reinert and Command Sergeant Major Earl Rocca made me an honorary member of the Order of the 88th Division and presented me with a proclamation and medal. I traveled to Fort McCoy to honor these brave and dedicated men and women, grateful for the opportunity. To be recognized with such a wonderful award, one I will forever cherish, by men and women I so greatly respected, was the thrill of a lifetime. Thanks go out to all my fellow “Blue Devils” for an incredible weekend. #HOOAH! #88thrsc 23 ♡ 1 ✍ August 22
