Something to Share With Family and Friends

H/T IMP

MEMORIAL DAY CZECH STYLE
Very interesting.  I didn't know about this and it’s too bad that we can't make some of our Congressmen read it, or have our own school children do the same.
OUR MEMORIAL DAY CELEBRATED IN the Czech Republic - Czechoslovakia
A bit of History -- Czech Republic / Czechoslovakia remembering and honoring AMERICA and our soldiers....
This is an amazing story of remembrance. In the Czech Republic , the school children of the equivalent of fifth grade are each assigned one of the American and Canadian liberators buried there. Their grave is the student's responsibility for the year and they learn all there is to know of their own hero. Their surviving family is sent letters and they respond to the annual child who tends their loved one's grave.
No apology needed here!
Have you ever wondered if anyone in Europe remembers America 's sacrifice in World War II? There is an answer in a small town in the Czech Republic . The town called Pilsen ( Plzen ).

Every 5 years, Pilsen conducts the Liberation Celebration of the City of Pilsen in the Czech Republic .. May 6th, 2010, marked the 65th anniversary of the liberation of Pilsen by General George Patton's 3rd Army. Pilsen is the town that every American should visit. Because they love America and the American Soldier.




Even 65 years later... by the thousands, 

The citizens of Pilsen came to say thank you. 

Lining the streets of Pilsen for miles 

From the large crowds, 

to quiet reflective moments, 

including this American family's private time to honor and remember their American hero. 

This is the crash site of Lt. Virgil P. Kirkham, the last recorded American USAAC pilot killed in Europe during WWII. It was Lt. Kirkham's 82nd mission and one that
he volunteered to go on.
At the time, this 20-year-old pilot's P-47 Thunderbolt
plane was shot down, a young 14-year-old Czech girl, Zdenka Sladkova, was so moved by his sacrifice she made a vow to care for him and his memory. For 65 straight years, Zdenka, now 79-years-old, took on the responsibility to care for Virgil's crash site and memorial near her home.



On May 4th, she was recognized by the Mayor of Zdenka's home town of Trhanova , Czech Republic , for her sacrifice and extraordinary effort to honor this American hero. 


Another chapter in this important story... the Czech people are teaching their childrenabout America 's sacrifice for their freedom. 

American Soldiers, young and old, are the Rock Stars these children and their parents want autographs from

Yes, Rock Stars! As they patiently waited for his autograph, the respect this little Czech boy and his father have for our troops serving today was heartwarming and inspirational. 

The Brian LaViolette Foundation established The Scholarship of Honor in tribute to General George S. Patton and the American Soldier, past and present. 

Each year, a different military hero will be honored in tribute to General Patton's memory and their mission to liberate Europe . This award will be presented to a graduating senior who will be entering the military or a form of community service such as fireman, policeman, teaching or nursing -- a cause greater than self. The student will be from 1 of the 5 high schools in Pilsen , Czech Republic . 

The first award will be presented in May 2011 in honor of Lt. Virgil Kirkham, that young 20-year-old P-47 pilot killed 65 years ago in the final days of WWII. 

Presenting Virgil's award will be someone who knows the true meaning of service and sacrifice... someone who looks a lot like Virgil. Marion Kirkham, Virgil's brother,
who himself served during WWII in the United States Army Air Corps!!! 


In closing... Here is what the city of Pilsen thinks of General Patton's grandson. George Patton Waters (another Rock Star!) we're proud to say, serves on Brian's
Foundation board. 


And it's front page news over there not buried in the middle of the social section. 

Brigadier General Miroslav Zizka, 1st Deputy Chief of Staff, Ministry of Defense, Czech Armed Forces.

Butthurt, Are You a Victim ?

The following government approved form for claiming Butthurt compensation was released immediately upon the confirmed election of Donald J Trump as President.

Since then we have had some Bona-Fido complaints that the form is lacking in effectiveness.



As a result of these claims and the demonstrated ability of the Federal government to care more about each of YOU more than life itself, the following enhancements have been made.  Rest assured they have all been approved by both the obamacare regulatory commission as well as the new obamacare roll out to be known as Trumpcare.

Let's Send Steven Segal to Congress

If you haven't seen the movie maybe this is a spoiler.  Good movie though - worth watching.  Steven is at his most entertaining in this one.

The Bloodhound Super Sonic Car

It's been delayed years but now this thing is starting to take breaths.   It is going to start its testing phase and move into the execution phase - a land speed record of 1,000 mph on land.

It will be piloted by Andy Green, the same man, RAF Wing Commander, who piloted ThurstSSC to beyond the sound barrier on land.

There will be many test runs working through the various phases of getting Bloodhound SSC to 1000 Mph, and these may take a year or more, but the process has finally started.
I'll keep you updated as interesting events occur.

In the meantime, Bloodhound checks out its jet engine at maximum thrust....  Click the pic.
