Care ~ perfection

“WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT!” a poem 16 Aug 2019 (Freya was a mother too!)

Maybe a lot more people care,* but you expect them to act a certain way,

AND THEY DON’T!!?!! So, you are OFTEN apt to say:

For instance:

“You really don’t care – because you’ve not called me today!”

Or: “If you REALLY loved me, you-WOULD-HAVE-remembered my-birthday-is-in-

May!”

SUCH PEOPLE WE MIGHT CALL: “relatives!” or “a sister” or “a brother,”

OR “household pets!” or “people who-call-you-MOTHER!”

What you expect THAT-SHOWS-YOU- they-care, YOU MAY NOT GET,

BUT! Don’t GIVE UP! For, you can always place this bet:

That when you least expect it, they’ll do JUST what you KNOW,

They SHOULD HAVE DONE to show you they care! Then, you’ll glow;

KNOWING they truly, absolutely – and always did CARE,

And-you might maybe even-go-so-far-as-to DARE,

To “imagine” that you DON”T-really-know – always what others might do,

To show they REALLY care,

For “little ol’ YOU!”

Facts~ WW2

Twelve Odd WWII Facts

1. The first German serviceman killed in WW II was killed by the Japanese ( China 1937), The first American serviceman killed was killed by the Russians (Finland 1940)

The highest ranking American killed was Lt Gen Lesley McNair killed by the US Army Air Corps.

2. The youngest US serviceman was12 year old Calvin Graham, USN. He was wounded and given a Dishonourable Discharge for lying about his age. His benefits were later restored by act of Congress.

3. At the time of Pearl Harbor, the top US Navy command was called CINCUS (pronounced ‘sink us’) the shoulder patch of the US Army’s 45th Infantry division was the swastika. Hitler’s private train was named ‘America.’ All three were soon changed for PR purposes.

4. More US servicemen died in the Air Corps than the Marine Corps. While completing the required 30 missions an airman’s chance of being killed was 71%.

5. Generally speaking, there was no such thing as an average fighter pilot. You were either an ace or a target. For instance, Japanese Ace Hiroyoshi Nishizawa shot down over 80 planes. He died while a passenger on a cargo plane.

6. It was a common practice on fighter planes to load every 5th round with a tracer round to aid in aiming. This was a big mistake. Tracers had different Ballistics so (at long range) if your tracers were hitting the target 80% of your rounds were missing. Worse yet tracers instantly told your enemy he was under fire and from which direction. Worst of all was the practice of loading a string of tracers at the end of the belt to tell you that you were out of ammo. This was definitely not something you wanted to tell the enemy. Units that stopped using tracers saw their success rate nearly double and their loss rate go down.

Note. In Vietnam, machine gun belts of 7.62 rounds were used with a tracer every sixth round. No lessons learnt from WW2)


7. When allied armies reached the Rhine, the first thing men did was pee in it. This was pretty universal from the lowest private to Winston Churchill (who made a big show of it) and Gen. Patton had himself photographed in the act.

8. German ME-264 bombers were capable of bombing New York City , but they decided it wasn’t worth the effort.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Messerschmitt_Me_264

9. German submarine U-120 was sunk by a malfunctioning toilet.

10. Among the first ‘Germans’ captured at Normandy were several Koreans. They had been forced to fight for the Japanese Army until they were captured by the Russians and forced to fight for the Russian Army until they were captured by the Germans and forced to fight for the German Army until they were captured by the US Army.

11. Following a massive naval bombardment, 35,000 United States and Canadian troops stormed ashore at Kiska, in the Al eutian Islands . 21 troops were killed in the assault on the island… It could have been worse if there had actually been any Japanese on the island.

12. The last marine killed in WW2 was killed by a can of spam. He was on the ground as a POW in Japan when rescue flights dropping food and supplies came over, the package came apart in the air and a stray can of spam hit him and killed him.
