WWI Buglers. My uncle Allen was a WWI bugler. His division was gassed at Argonne Meuse on October 7, 1918, and he returned home in February, 1919.

    The German 42cm M-Gerät 14 howitzer, known as “Big Bertha”. Developed in secret prior to World War I, the two prototypes were rushed to the front to assist in the reduction of the Belgian fortifications blocking the German advance. The success of the gun would lead to ten more being built.

        On another note, I’m doing as well as to be expected. I have not received my Letter, “in the mail”, placing me on the National Liver Transplant List. I’m told, transplant is based on your MELD score, current test results, there was something else, can’t remember now. So this is good news!!!!!!! Transplants usually occur within the 9-15 months range.

        Czar, if you could start printing those phony baloney pieces of paper……. about $200K……that should do it. Got the Veteran discount…….

          I have a few pieces of the phony baloney NV currency the US ALLEGEDLY printed and dropped over the North to raise hell with their economy – think that might help? Actuallt talk to Treasury, they’ve been printing phony baloney currency ever since we went off of the gold standard.
          I can remember my son’s liver transplant, stay the course – it can become uncomfortable before the transplant. He was literally at death’s door – but that was due to his size, he was 6’4″ 290, a big boy so it took a very large liver to transplant. Within hours of the transplant he was a normal color, feeling 500% better and planning a menu.
          I’m betting it ain’t the first time you’ve been up against the wall and, as in times past, look left, look right, we’re all there with you. ESSAYONS!

          Oh, Colonel, this is the first I’ve heard of this; my attendance has been very spotty for some weeks now. I’m so sorry! Prayers being said for you from Alaska, right now and every day. Please keep us posted, even when you don’t feel much like it.

          My friend was given about the same time frame for a heart transplant. He was already in the hospital and his family was making plans for him to be there for a very long time.

          A heart became available within a week.

          You never no.

          Blessings and prayers.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    Here is latest White House Pool Report:

    Subject: WH Pool Report 12 – Trump comments

    Here are some highlights from the president’s press conference. Please check against transcript.

    The summit is on for June 12 in Singapore.

    “I think it will be a process.”

    “They want other things. They want to develop as a country. ”

    “You’re going to have a very positive result in the end. It will ultimately be a successful process.”

    “I think we’re going to have a relationship and it’s going to start on June 12. ”

    “The relationship is as good as it’s been in a long time. This should have handled a long time ago.”

    The president said they did not discuss human rights and said the sanctions would remain on North Korea, but he would not be adding any new ones while talks are going on. “I ook forward to the day where I can take the sanctions off.

    “We see a lot of very positive things.” He said Japan, South Korea and China are going to have to play major roles in helping North Korea develop, “It’s their neighborhood. We’re very far away.”

    The leaders also talked about putting a formal end to the Korean War. which was stopped by an armistice, not a peace treaty. “We talked about ending the war. ”

    The president began to walk away and then returned to talk about NAFTA.

    “It’s a terrible deal for the United States. I believe in the word reciprocal. It’s going to be done now.”

    Trump talked about possibly having different treaties with Mexico and Canada rather than one encompassing all three countries. “These are two very different countries,” he said.

    “I like free trade but I want fair trade. They cannot believe they’ve gotten away with this for so many decades.”
