Soviet troops shelter in an anti-tank slit trench. The caption I found for this says that it is an action photo of Soviet troops at Kursk. This is clearly wrong - the tank passing over the trench is a T-34 Soviet tank, indicating that this is a training exercise.
What we just learned in world history
During World War II, Russian soldiers were trained to dig their trenches narrow and deep so the weight of a tank or other vehicle passing over would not collapse the dirt in on them burying them alive ...

Before 1942, American children pledged allegiance to the flag with the Bellamy salute. Worried that it might be confused with the Nazi's Roman salute, Congress changed the salute to simply placing a hand over the heart. - (This so surprised me.)

1939, Swearing of the Pledge used to be accompanied by a salute. Adopted in 1892, it was known as the Bellamy salute. It started with the hand outstretched toward the flag, palm down, and ended with the palm up. Because of the similarity between the Bellamy salute and the Nazi salute, developed later, US Congress instituted the hand-over-the-heart gesture to be rendered by civilians during the Pledge of allegiance in the United States, instead of the Bellamy salute. True story.
The Pledge of Allegiance was written in August 1892 by the socialist minister Francis Bellamy (1855-1931). It was originally published in The Youth's Companion on September 8, 1892. During World War II, the salute too much resembled the Nazi salute, so it was changed to keep the right hand over the heart throughout. http://www.ushistory.org/documents/pledge.htm

American Hero: First woman to enlist, 1917, yeoman in US Navy
Loretta Walsh - The first woman in the U.S. Navy- you go girl!
Loretta Walsh was born in Philadelphia on April 22, 1896. Even though women had been serving in the Navy decades before Walsh ever did, she was the first to have identical pay & benefits as the men. Those who enlisted before she did often worked as nurses & were treated as civilians, not military personnel. Walsh stands as the first of 13,000 women who enlisted in the Navy. Today she is a very important piece of female as well as naval history. At 18 she became the first female Chief Yeoman.

Leatherwood, Kentucky, 1964. "Boy covered by dirt smoking cigarette with one hand, holding can of tobacco in other."(I would get him and give him a good scrubbing after tossing that stuff out....I have kids and does not fit anywhere in my head)
Leatherwood, Kentucky, 1964 / And people say the world is getting worse...
Leatherwood, Kentucky 1964: A filthy very young boy smoking a hand-rolled cigarette holding a package of Prince Albert tobacco. This is 1 of 12 children of Willie and Vivian Cornett. Willie was a recently laid off coal miner and his wife was unemployed. Photographer William Gedney followed the Cornett family and captured their life of poverty in photos. Sadly, many of the young Cornett boys smoked cigarettes. (Gedney Photographs and Writings Collection, Duke University).

January 27th, hundreds of metal shoes are placed on the banks of the River Danube in Hungary to mark the slaughter of hundreds of Jewish people who were ordered to place their shoes on the bank before being shot and pushed in the river by Hungarian militamen. A terrible and poignant reminder of the atrocities committed in WW2. It made me cry!
