They "Teach" Our Children

    I went to a meeting a few years ago where the navigator on the Enola Gay was the featured speaker.

    His name was Theodore Van Kirk.

    He has since died on July 28, 2014 at the age of 93.

    He said during his address to us that he had made many addresses over the years to schools.

    One time he was introduced by a faculty member at a high school who told the assembly that he was a veteran of World War 2.

    Of course, that is normally written WWII. 

    She introduced him as a veteran of, "World War Eleven".

    These "teachers" are “teaching” our children. :-(

Thank-you Alex for the sad reminder of the obvious.

As a Boomer, whose father fought in World War II, seeing action for the entirety of the Okinawa campaign, and the liberation of the Philippines, now sensing that he did suffer from a slight case of PTSD, which was never openly discussed in his day.

I am always incensed when those that did not serve, would never have served, know little to nothing of the sacrifice of our warriors, those men who were once just one of the many young boys, who worked hard, loved Jesus, and never doubted their inner patriot.
