1932 Bonus March – Re Patton; MacArthur; Eisenhower, etc.

January 18, 2009 Gunny G Edit Leave a comment Go to commentsThe most notable domestic use of Regular troops in twenty years of peace happened in the nation’s capital in the summer of 1932.

Some thousands of “Bonus Marchers” remained in Washington after the adjournment of Congress dashed their hopes for immediate payment of a bonus for military service in World War I.

On July 28, when marshals and police tried to evict one group encamped near the Capitol, a riot with some bloodshed occurred.

ISIS is an opportunity not a disasterby LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD

September 25, 2014

On December 16, 1944, three German armies, the Sixth SS Panzer, Fifth Panzer and the Seventh Army, some 24 divisions in all, launched an offensive against the six defending U.S. divisions strung out along 100 miles of the Ardennes Forest, later to be known as the Battle of the Bulge.

For the first time since D-Day on June 6th, the Allies were facing a foe that was more numerous, more mobile and better equipped than they were. A successful German counter offensive would be catastrophic, and in the first few days of the battle it looked like a real possibility.

Nevertheless, Eisenhower, according to his book Crusade in Europe, began the conference by saying, “The present situation is to be regarded as one of opportunity for us and not of disaster.”Eisenhower exerted a firm grip on the battle. Patton was ordered to swing his U.S. 3rd Army 90 degrees and drive north to strike at the southern flank of the ‘bulge’ driven into the Allied line, a task he completed with unprecedented speed.

To prevent the swelling German salient to sever communications between Bradley’s U.S. 12th Army Group on the northern and southern sides of the ‘bulge’, Eisenhower gave Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery, commander of the British 21st Army Group, operational control in the north.

The objective was to halt and cut off the offensive, which, after about one

Media’s take on poverty issues exposes the dishonesty of the press

Gunny G: IMHO, HEY-YOU! Is MORE THAN APPROPRIATE! ~ Why Is the President of the United States Called “Mr. President” and How Did the Nickname Originate?***The president of the United States was not always called “Mr. President”.Washington wanted citizens to call him “His Mightiness, the President,” but to many people, that sounded too much like addressing the king they’d fought so hard to shed………..
