American Home Front
Karen Whiting and Jocelyn Green have co-authored a book called Stories of Faith and Courage from the Home Front (releases in April 2012). While researching home front heroes from all American wars, we've met remarkable women (and men, but mostly women). They are worth sharing with you! For more about the book, including blog, resources, and excerpts, see http://www.homefrontcourage.com.

We all give thanks every day to you brave men and women who put your lie on the line for us and allow us to live a normal life god bless you to the fallen soldiers. Our thoughts are with you especially today. Happy Veterans Day
Freedom isn't just a word in the dictionary. American soldiers who'll never see their families again.
I am thankful to those who gave their lives for our freedom. Amazing great people... We appreciate everything they do to keep us safe & protected. I thank all the men and women who died for our freedom that we take for grated every single day and I'm so so sorry to the families who have lost a loved one who was in the military.
I am thankful for those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice to secure our freedom and humbled by it. May God bless you and your families, and may we be worthy of your dedication.
In January 2009, the military lifted the ban on photographs of flag draped coffins coming back from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The ban was put in place in 1991 because a photograph can be a powerful method of communication whose interpretation is difficult to control, and therefore can evoke a variety of feelings and responses. The military made its argument that the ban was necessary to protect the privacy and dignity of the families of the fallen.
I sometimes think a lot of the things said about our military (as a whole) border nationalism, and I'm not a big fan of that. However, I respect those who volunteered their lives, their comfort, and everything else, for people they'll never know. My heart goes out to those who've suffered the grief of losing someone in a warzone, not just now, but ever. Grief is never easy. Happy Memorial Day everyone.

Old North Church - This church, built in 1723 in a style inspired by English architect Christopher Wren, is the oldest active church building in Boston. It was where Paul Revere ordered lanterns hung ("one if by land, two if by sea, and I on the opposite shore will be") to notify others of British troop movements prior to the Battles of Lexington and Concord.
American Revolution, Style, Church Building
Old North Church (officially, Christ Church in the City of Boston), at 193 Salem Street, in the North End of Boston, is the location from which the famous "One if by land, and two if by sea" signal is said to have been sent. This phrase is related to Paul Revere's midnight ride, of April 18, 1775, which preceded the Battles of Lexington and Concord during the American Revolution.

Gettysburg Address. Spot Lincoln? #CivilWar
November 19, 1863: On this day in 1863, President Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address at the dedication of a military cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania during the American Civil War. The speech reflected Lincoln’s redefined conviction that the Civil War was not just a fight to maintain the Union but also a struggle for freedom and equality for all. Although the speech consisted of only 272 words, it remains one of the most powerful and memorable discourses in American history.
LINCOLN AT GETTYSBURG (1863) A crowd forms for President Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg address in Gettysburg, Pa., on Nov. 19, 1863. For Lincoln, the power of the men’s sacrifice lay in the “cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion”: preserving the union and enabling “a new birth of freedom” encompassing all men. >Some of the most powerful photos in U.S. history (20 Photos) : theCHIVE

Remembering the Sullivan Survivors
World War Ii, History, Sullivan Brother, Uss Juneau, Wwii, Bands Of Brother, Ships, Navy, Solomon Islands
History in Action: After this, siblings could not serve together on the same ship or mission. The Sullivan brothers on USS Juneau (Joseph, Francis, Albert, Madison and George Sullivan (from left to right)) pictured on the 14 February 1942. All served on the USS Juneau. None survived their ship being torpedoed at the battle of Guadalcanal Nov. 12-13, 1942.
Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (MCPON)(AW/NAC) Michael D. Stevens shares....... The Sullivan brothers were five siblings who all died during the same incident in World War II, the sinking of the light cruiser USS Juneau (CL-52), the vessel on which they all served. The brothers on board Juneau; from left to right: Joseph, Francis, Albert, Madison and George Sullivan. The Sullivans were natives of Waterloo, Iowa.
No band of brothers could match the five Sullivans—George, Francis, Joseph, Madison and Albert. After the quintet from Waterloo, Iowa, lost a friend at the bombing of Pearl Harbor, they enlisted in the Navy. All five were serving on the USS Juneau during World War II when it was sunk in a 1942 naval battle. When three uniformed men called upon their parents’ house, Thomas Sullivan knew the news was bad. “Which one?” the father asked. “I’m sorry. All five,”
Joseph, Francis, Albert, Madison and George Sullivan of Waterloo, Iowa. Served together on the USS Juneau in WWII. The ship was hit twice by Japanese torpedos; once during the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal and once after it withdrew from the battle and was leaving the Solomon Islands for Espiritu Santo. Frank, Joe and Matt died instantly; Al drowned the next day and George succumbed to his grief four or five days later when he swam away from his raft and was never seen again.
14 Nov 42: The Cruiser USS JUNEAU is sunk off Guadalcanal, taking the five Sullivan brothers, who had been granted their request to serve together on the same ship. As a direct result of this tragedy, the US War Department adopts the Sole Survivor Policy, designed to protect members of a family from the draft or from combat duty if they have already lost family members in military service.

The Sullivan Brothers: On January 3, 1942 all five Sullivan brothers enlisted into the Navy given the informed consent that they all serve on the same ship. Soon after, they were all assigned to the USS Juneau and sent to the Pacific theatre of war. Later on that year, on Friday the 13th of November during the Battle of Guadalcanal, the Juneau was subject to Japanese torpedo attacks, one of which hit the cruiser’s ammunition storages. The damage was critical and the cruiser sank shortly
