Morning y'all, have a blessed monday. don’t settle to just be someone’s downtime, spare time, part time, or sometime.  if they can’t be there for you all of the time, especially when you need them most, then they’re not worth your time.in fact, we depend on god for everything and in everything. god bless y'all.#1930 #worldwar2 #nature #mugcake #sleeping #bedroomgoals #paris #ontario #roses #bloomingville #candles #italy #snowman #dubai #cookies #bake #housing #momdaughter #motherhood #babies #historyofeurope #love #cakesmash #bishops

November 9 1944

soldiers of the african american, 452nd anti-aircraft artillery battalion, us xii corps rest with an m1 40mm bofors anti-aircraft gun by the marne-rhin canal, north eastern france.
during the battle of the bulge in the ardennes forest, anti-aircraft artillery battalions were despatched to the scene of the hugely unexpected german effort to divide the allies into two separate armies.

comprising fewer than 1,000 soldiers, including support staff, the 452nd is credited with having shot down 88 german warplanes, 68 of which were fully confirmed kills and 19 partially confirmed kills.
this is the highest number of such kills credited to an all-african-american unit during the war and likely one of the top 3 among hundreds of other white aaa units.

the 452nd aaa is also one of only a dozen or so anti-aircraft artillery battalions whose name is chiseled onto the battle of the bulge monument situated in st. louis , missouri. #war #ww2 #ww2history #ww2pictures #ww2tanks #ww2guns #ww2incolor #worldwar #worldwar2 #worldwar2history #worldwar2incolor #worldwartwo #worldwartwoincolor #color #colorful #colorized #colorization #coloring #colors #troops #africanamericans #fighting #american #guns #unit

British troops in the us 5th army

major-general c f liardet, commandant of the raf regiment inspects the ncos of no. 2788 squadron at cassino, italy. he is seen here shaking hands with sergeant curtiss from hull. (ca. spring '44) ".... soon after we got to italy, in about march 1944, our commandant had a bright idea, he decided to lend his boys to the us 5th army. the only nice thing to come out of this for us was that we had american rations and were able to watch films. however, very soon we were in the line."

12 november 1943

a u.s. navy douglas sbd-5 dauntless of bombing squadron vb-16 flies an antisubmarine patrol low over the battleship uss washington (bb-56) en route to the invasion of the gilbert islands. the ship in the background is uss lexington (cv-16), the aircraft's home carrier. note the depth charge below the sbd.

usn vb-16 consisted of 36 douglas sbd-5 dauntless operating from the uss lexington from september 1943 – june 1944. starting in june 1943 the aircraft carried the new tri-color national insignia with a red surround with false gun ports painted on the wings leading edges. however in mid september 1943 the red surround slowly began to be replaced by insignia blue. in november 1943 the u.s. marines began their assault on the gilbert islands and the sbd-5's of vb-16 took part with some still wearing the red surround.

Odessa, string and wax on wood, 2017. in october 1941, in retaliation for the killing of a romanian commander, romanian and german troops committed one of the largest single mass murders of jewish people. the soldiers initially executed individuals, but finding the process too time consuming and expensive, they herded them into 4 large warehouses and fired directly into 2 of the buildings through perforations they made in the walls. they subsequently filled the structures with gasoline and set them on fire. between 25,000 and 34,000 people were shot, burned, and shelled while trapped inside. odessa, transnistria (now ukraine)

This past saturday, a legend passed away! wilfred defour died in his home in harlem, ny at the age of 100. some of you have no idea who this man was! so let me tell you...in the early 1940’s, racial segregation and discrimination were at an all time high in the united states! if you were a black person in those days, you barely had any rights! yet a small group of african american men had a dream! they wanted to join the military and become fighter pilots. in those days, blacks were considered to have neither the skill, nor the intelligence to fly aircraft! but these brave men defied the odds, even in the face of constant ridicule and badgering from the white air force recruits! in fact, whites refused to train with these men simply because of the colour of their skin and so they were shipped off to train at the tuskegee army airfield, in alabama. their program was considered an experiment and many expected that they would fail! but these men proved everyone wrong and they passed with flying colours, becoming the first all black fighter squadron to be deployed during world war ii. the tuskegee airmen, also known as red tails, due the tails of their aircraft being painted red, as a way of separating them from the white pilots! wilfred defour was among the members of that squadron! these trailblazers paved the way for many african americans, male and female, to pursue their dream of flying in both the navy and air force! today, blacks still make up a very small percentage of military pilots, but at least that barrier was broken back in 1943! pilots of colour, both military and civilian, owe a debt of gratitude to the tuskegee airmen! if you would like to read more about them, please see the link in my bio! 👨🏾‍✈️

What do you do with a world war left unfinished? you find time to finish the fight for world dominance. japan conquered china and the british far east. italy was knocked out of the war. germany and the ussr bloodied one another in the east over poland. in the west a beachhead was established in france.

good game guys. next it's time to bring in sean bender, the hammer. #axisandallies #seanbender #worldwar2 #worldwartwo #cats

I’m so proud to be a woman. a girl. a lady. a citizen. i wouldn’t change a god d**n thing. so thankful to my fellow females out there whom i know personally and those who dedicated their lives to doing the right thing, and being role models for millions of young girls to come. because of women like you, i am who i am. life may be easier if i was something different, but for me, i love who i am, who i can become, and who i will become.

M&m's stands for mars & murrie. m&m's were first sold in 1941, but when world war ii began, they were sold exclusively to the u.s. military. because the sugar coating prevented the candy from melting in warm climates like the pacific, m&m's were issued in cardboard tubes as part of the soldier's rations 😯

America’s naval base in mld-pacific, the little island of midway, was first raided by the japanese on dec. 8, 1941. the u s garrison put up a determined resistance and held out successfully. on june 4, 1942 the enemy launched a full-scale attack and suffered crippling air and naval losses. this photo shows u.s. douglas dauntless dive-bombers maintaining a vigilant watch around midway’s shores. from pearl harbour in hawaii to midway is about 1200 miles.
