September 15, 1935 - The
Nuremberg Laws deprived
German Jews of
Battle of Peleliu began as the
United States Marine Corps'
1st Marine Division and the
United States Army's
81st Infantry Division hit White and Orange beaches under heavy fire from
Japanese infantry and artillery.
September 15, 1970 - Hmm. Apparently not a bloomin'
thing happened today. Whodathunkit??
can never tell what will be the result of faithful service rendered, nor
do we know when it will come back to us or to those with whom we are
associated. The reward may not come at the time, but in dividends later.
I believe we will never lose anything in life by giving service, by
making sacrifices, and doing the right thing.
(22 Nov 1856 - 14 May 1945)

|A tourist parked his car in
downtown Washington, D.C. He said to a man standing near the curb,
"Listen, I'm going to be only a couple of minutes. Would you watch my
car while I run into this store?"
"What?" the man huffed. "Do you realize that I am a member of the United States Congress?"
"Well, no," the tourist said, "I didn't realize that. But it's all right. I'll trust you anyway."
