TODAY IN WWII:
|June 15, 1940 - The French fortress of Verdun was captured by
June 15, 1942 - The US
Army activated the Hampton Roads Port of Embarkation (HRPE).
TODAY IN 1965:
1965 - Rower
was born in
Tuesday, June 15, 1965 - Actor Steve Cochran (born Robert Alexander Cochran on 25 May 1917 in Eureka, California) died at the age of 48 on his yacht off the coast of Guatemala due to an acute lung infection. His body, along with three alive but upset female assistants, remained onboard for ten days since the three women didn't know how to operate the boat. The boat drifted to shore in Port Champerico, Guatemala and was found by authorities. There were various rumors of foul play and poisoning, and Merle Oberon tried to use her influence to push for further police investigations. No new evidence was found.
From Bill Lee (Warwick HS - '54) of NC - 06/13/10 - "An item for WWII memorable date section of your newsletter":
|June 15, 1942 was the day
the US Army activated the Hampton Roads Port of Embarkation (HRPE). Until
late 1945, the Army ran the port operations in Newport News and Norfolk.
HRPE was the third most active of eight ports taken over by the
government during WWII. Only New York and San Francisco processed more
service personnel, coming and going. When HRPE was shut down, a total of
1,687,000 people had passed through the HRPE port area.
WOWZERS! Thank you so much for this valuable addition, Bill! This did not pop up on my radar.
From Kathy Cooper ('70) of VA - 06/14/10 - "Roy Lee Mays":
|My cousin, Roy Lee Mays,
passed away May 28, 2010, after a long illness. He was in the class of
'69, I believe.
He was living in Saint Paul, VA. However, he has been in a nursing home
for quite a while. I will check with my mother about the obituary. (The
nursing home was in another city.)
Oh, Kathy, I'm so sorry to learn this! I'll be preparing a Memorial Edition for him soon; hopefully we'll be able to locate his obituary very shortly.
From Norris Perry (Warwick HS - '59) of VA - 06/14/10 - "Cucumbers":
WOW, WHAT A LITTLE GEM THE CUCUMBER IS . . . .
Who says you can't learn something new each day?
Cucumbers contain most of the vitamins you need every day, just one
cucumber contains Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5,
Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin C, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus,
Potassium and Zinc.
Looking for a fast and easy way to remove cellulite before going out or
to the pool? Try rubbing a slice or two of cucumbers along your problem
area for a few minutes, the phytochemicals in the cucumber cause the
collagen in your skin to tighten, firming up the outer layer and
reducing the visibility of cellulite. Works great on wrinkles too!!!
of WD 40 and need to fix a squeaky hinge? Take a cucumber slice and rub
it along the problematic hinge, and voila, the squeak is gone!
Using a pen and made a mistake? Take the outside of the cucumber and
slowly use it to erase the pen writing, also works great on crayons and
markers that the kids have used to decorate the walls!!
WOWZERS! Let's hear it for cucumbers! Thanks, Norris!
From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 06/14/10 - "Prayer":
Every new day is a gift-- all you have to do is untie the ribbon ;-)
Knock, Knock, I knocked at heaven's door this morning..
God asked me....'My child, what can I do for you?'
And I said, 'Father, please protect and bless the person reading this message.'
God smiled and answered...'Request granted'.
'Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of Battle.'
OOOH! Thanks, Dearest Judy!
From Jane Chambers of VA - 07/01/09 AND 02/07/10 - "CNC BOOK BROCHURE & AD" AND 61-62 DECADERS ADDENDA:

FromArcaMax Jokes - 06/14/10:
In my sociology class, we were instructed to write down answers to some questions the teacher was asking.
"Next question," announced the instructor. "How would you like to be seen by the opposite sex?"
I was thinking about my answer when the young woman next to me turned and asked, "How do you spell 'intellectual?'"
