Re: Sgt. David Harris remembrance project

50 years after his death, March 24, 2019, this was published in the Sunday paper of the Marion Star Ohio newspaper. Bill Allman sent me the link.

Re: Who is Urban Miyares?

I can understand your frustration. However, I think the only people his story upsets are those of us who served with the battalion and knew people who died while we were there. I remember two FO team guys that did what I did that died there and a couple others that were wounded, one seriously..... a...

Re: Who is Urban Miyares?

Yep all of the Urban BS almost word for word. Urban must have dictated it. I like the author's quote of Urban: "Leadership is all about love", said Urban. "Without it, you can't lead anything or anyone". Considering how he must have loved all his platoon members enough to be prom...

31st Regiment and Siberia

I saw this offering on ebay of a Regiment organization day pamphlet from 1935. One of the historical notes was about the Siberian expedition when the Regiment was only about 3 years old. It landed in the Siberian AO from the China side on August 21, 1918. It's first casualty was eight days later. Th...

The missing include the American Airlines Sky Ball speech that started the whole thing when Urban had the nerve to link it on the 6/31st facebook page looking for someone to help his lie in any way.

It was worse than that. He had his picture in a college yearbook 35 years ago as either a KKK guy or a white guy in blac...
