    Freedom is something that dies unless it's used.


    A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.

    A student said to his master, "You teach me fighting, but you talk about peace. How do you reconcile the two?"
    The master replied, "It is better to be a warrior in a garden, than to be a gardener in a war."

    One o'clock in the morning, 400 miles from the north pole.
    The cold war was going on, and the government built a line of radar stations across the top of Alaska and Canada. It was called the "Distant Early Warning Line," or to those involved it was the "DEW Line." WWII was finished ten years before, and the Korean war was involved in peace talks, still on going in 2015 I think. The government assembled the largest number of ships since WWII, and probably to this day there hasn't been a convoy that large. There were two groups of ships, the western fleet that sailed east into the Coronation Gulf on top of Canada, and an eastern fleet that sailed west into the same area. We were 66 days at sea before the ships were unloaded and heading home.

    Point Barrow, this picture was taken in June we were just starting. When we had all the cargo unloaded and leaving the arctic, the sea right here was totally covered with ice.

    Bringing a "Mike boat" aboard the ship. Officially these boats were called Landing Craft Mechanized, or more conmanly LCM, or Mike boats. 55 feet long, weighing something like 50 tons, twin screws and rudders, and twin Gray Marine Diesel engines. I don't know if the Navy still has any of these boats around, seems to me the Amphibious forces use hoover craft and helicopters now days. As a young sailor I drove LCM's, and I loved it. It was a real rush driving that boat through the surf onto the beach, then backing off through the surf.

    Due to the high price of ammunition there will be no warning shot.

    RANDOM PICTURE THREAD - Post ANY of your favorite pictures here to share with...

    Cool thread, i'll play along.

    I really enjoy images pertaining to Texas History. These are all widely distributed, but i find them interesting. A lot of these tie into my family history.

    Enlisted men of Company C, 8th Texas Cavalry (Terry's Texas Rangers):


    PVT. Simeon Crews, Company F ("Victoria County Rangers") - 7th Texas Mounted Volunteers:


    Kerrville-based artist Roy Andersen's depiction of the Confederate advancement at Pigeon's Ranch during the battle of Glorieta, New Mexico. Confederate elements of the 2nd, 4th, 5th & 7th Texas Mounted Volunteers (Sibley's Brigade) faced heavy opposition by Chivington's 1st Colorado Cavalry. A few years later, Chivington would come under federal review for war crimes committed at the 1864 Sand Creek Massacre:


    A Confederate victory that came too late - This photograph was taken on the grounds of the last battle of the American Civil War. The fighting at Palmito Ranch (Cameron County, TX) took place 34 days after Lee surrendered at Appomattox:


    Longhorn Caverns (Burnet County, TX). During the Civil War, Confederate soldiers utilized the caverns as a powder mill. The cave system provided an abundant supply of bat guano, from which they would extract saltpetre. I found a document years ago in the state archives that stated the cavern mill could steadily produce 80-100 pounds of saltpetre a day... With 100 pounds of guano yielding 4 pounds of saltpetre:


    The Treue Der Union Monument (Kendall County, TX). Unique due to the fact that it is the only Union monument located on formerly-Confederate soil, it was erected in 1866 over the mass grave of 36 Union-sympathetic german "Home Guards" that were massacred along the Nueces River by McRae's Confederate Partisans:


    The Gault Site (Bell County, TX).
    First recorded by Dr. Michael Collins (Pictured) and Dr. Thomas Hester, the Gault Site was ground zero for studying Clovis culture in North America... Until they dug too deep and realized there was something older! North America's inhabited history effectively jumped from 13,000 to 15,500 years old, and the term "Pre-Clovis" has come to use in North America because of published findings out of the BCC. Hopefully the sister-sites located in the other 8 states turn up similar findings!


    Swordsman's Gauntlet (Floydada, TX).
    As Coronado moved up thru Texas, he utilized Blanco Canyon as a strategic encampment. In the 1950's, a farmer discovered the gauntlet while plowing a field and added it to his indian artifact collection where it stayed until the 60's when he had it identified by scholars. Fast forward to the 90's, a hobby detectorist is hunting nearby and discovers copper crossbow bolt points. An excavation ensues, and Coronado's path thru Texas is largely discovered.


    The French occupation of Texas - the last 20 years have expanded the French portion of Texas history by tenfold due to two discoveries, both revolving around the famous explorer Robert Cavelier de La Salle.
    1995 saw the discovery of La Salle's flagship 'La Belle' in Matagorda Bay... And the subsequent excavation marked the first use of a cofferdam in North America to recover a shipwreck. 1996 saw the discovery of Fort St. Louis, built by La Salle's exploration party. Both sites are still actively being studied.



    Billy Dixon - Second Battle of Adobe Walls.
    Along with Bat Masterson and 26 other buffalo hunters, they spent three days besieged by hundreds of indians led by Quanah Parker. On day three, Dixon borrowed a .50-90 Sharps and tumbled a respected tribal elder backwards off his horse - from over 1500 yards away - which quickly ended the hostilities. Dixon always claimed it was a lucky shot, but modesty ran rampant back then... Yea, Chris Kyle bested him by 560 yards... But it was also 134 years later, and with a McMillan Tac-338. I'd bet they are arguing about it right now.
