PRAYER REQUEST:From the Head Cheerleader of 1965, Pam Smith Arnold of VA - 01/27/14, 9:34 AM:
My daughter, Laura, sent me the picture, "What Every Mother Sees." My eldest son, Pete, is in Afghanistan right now - Army Reserves. I am so very proud that he is serving his country. If you could post this, I would like to request any spare prayers that anyone has be directed his way. God may be getting tired of all my prayers for Pete, and it would be a nice break for Him to hear from someone else.
Thanks. BTW, my daughter had a tour in Afghanistan and Iraq. I am very proud of my children.
well you should be, Cousin Pam!
We will definitely keep Pete in our prayers!

THIS DAY IN WWII:
|January 27, 1939 - First flight
January 27, 1943 -
The VIII Bomber Command dispatched ninety-one B-17s
and B-24s to attack the U-Boat construction yards at
Wilhemshafen, Germany. This was the first American
bombing attack on Germany of the war.
THIS DAY IN 1964:

From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 04/29/08 (sic) - "WORLD WAR 2 PICTURES..........":
Not just Jews but Christians, ....too sad.
|These photos were taken in Germany by James Emison Chanslor, an Army Master Sergeant who served in World War II from 1942 until 1945.|
|Source: Photos courtesy of John Michael Chanslor|
It is a matter of history that when Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps, he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.
He did this because he said in words to this effect: 'Get
it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses - because somewhere
down the track of history some b *stard will get up and say that this never
The above sentence is not really correct, but it does nothing to negate the reality
of the horror of these images, or the fact that there are those who make such obscene claims:
This is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving in to it.
It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in

my daddy, the late
Robert Buckley (John Marshall HS - '25)
(19 Oct 1907 - 25 Apr 1960)
was present at the liberation of at
least one of the infamous Nazi concentration camps. He would never
actually admit it, but he was in the right place at the right time, and
it would stand to reason that he should have been there. Moreover, on
more than one occasion he related in great detail a delousing scene of
woman prisoners (he called them "refugees") which I later viewed in a
documentary exactly as he had described. Most telling to me, however,
was the way he never missed an opportunity to show me, a young child,
very graphic images of the camps as they appeared in magazines and on
television. Considering the great care he had taken to protect me from
other evils of the world, his heroic efforts that I should never forget
speak volumes to me, even today.
Thank you, Daddy.

From George Helliesen ('61) of MI - 01/26/14 - "Acceleration explained.........for the gentlemen":
HOT DIGGITY DOG!!!
Ever wonder why a Top Fuel dragster gets a rebuilt engine after each run?
Stay with this - even if you aren't a 'car nut', this is stunning.
* One Top Fuel dragster
outfitted with a 500 cubic-inch replica Dodge (actually Keith Black,
etc) Hemi engine makes more horsepower (8,000 HP) than the first 4 rows
of cars at NASCAR's Daytona 500.
An NHRA Top Fuel Dragster
accelerates quicker than any other land vehicle on earth . . quicker
than a jet fighter plane . . . quicker than the space shuttle....or
snapping your fingers !!
|Thank you, George! (Weenie that I am, I think I just had a coronary thinking about all this.....)|

BONUS EASY JEWISH RECIPES:
http://www.easyjewishrecipes.com/chicken-soup-recipe.html - Traditional Jewish Chicken Soup - "The traditional Jewish Chicken Soup Recipe (or 'Jewish penicillin') is often served at holidays and Shabbat and makes a comforting and flavorful addition to any meal. You can replace chicken with turkey meat and enjoy a hearty turkey soup and use up the vegetables that you happen to have on hand in case you have run out of carrots, celery or onions. Prepare the soup as a chicken noodle soup recipe, chicken rice soup, matzo ball soup or as a clear broth - always good."
