Memorial day in May is to honor the ones who died in the military services

Veteran's day in November is to honor those who are or have been in the military services.
We should share what we know... someone may learn...
That knowledge can live after us... and that "Pays It Forward".
Be all that you can be . . .

Dug deeper.

Memorial Day  -  was formerly known as Decoration Day and originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the war.
By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service.


Veterans Day  -  U.S. President Woodrow Wilson first proclaimed Armistice Day for November 11, 1919. In proclaiming the holiday. The United States Congress passed a concurrent resolution seven years later on June 4, 1926, requesting that President Calvin Coolidge issue another proclamation to observe November 11 with appropriate ceremonies.[2] A Congressional Act (52 Stat. 351; 5 U.S. Code, Sec. 87a) approved May 13, 1938, made the 11th of November in each year a legal holiday: "a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as 'Armistice Day'.

In 1945, World War II veteran Raymond Weeks from Birmingham, Alabama, had the idea to expand Armistice Day to celebrate all veterans, not just those who died in World War I. Weeks led a delegation to Gen. Dwight Eisenhower, who supported the idea of National Veterans Day. Weeks led the first national celebration in 1947 in Alabama and annually until his death in 1985. President Reagan honored Weeks at the White House with the Presidential Citizenship Medal in 1982 as the driving force for the national holiday. Elizabeth Dole, who prepared the briefing for President Reagan, determined Weeks as the "Father of Veterans Day."

U.S. Representative Ed Rees from Emporia, Kansas, presented a bill establishing the holiday through Congress. President Dwight D. Eisenhower, also from Kansas, signed the bill into law on May 26, 1954.

Congress amended this act on June 1, 1954, replacing "Armistice" with "Veterans," and it has been known as Veterans Day since

Veterans Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day; Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving.

11 Feared Dead, 2 Bodies Found
By HARRY G. SHULMAN
District Correspondent

VP-10 Mishap

BRUNSWICK - A Naval Air Station Brunswick patrol bomber with 11 men aboard plunged into the Atlantic Ocean 300 miles off the Virginia coast Wednesday. The bodies of 2 crewmen were recovered, the rest were listed as missing and presumed dead. The twin-engine Neptune P2V was returning to the local base after completing Anti-Submarine Warfare exercises. A search for the other nine officers and men is continuing. Lt. Cmdr. Herbert E. Wilson, Public Information Officer of Fleet Air Wing Three here said a search plane spotted debris from the VP-10 plane at about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday. Found were a life raft and other objects definitely identified as coming from the P2V of Patrol Squadron 10 based here.

NAVY AUTHORITIES said the plane, commanded by Lt. Cmdr Phillip S. Callihan, was last heard from shortly after 2:30 a.m.. There was no indication of trouble at the time and no distress signals were received from the plane. The Navy did not reveal the names of the men whose bodies had been recovered. Fleet Air Wing Three headquarters here said aircraft from Brunswick and from the carrier USS Champlain are taking part in the search. It was expected the search would be discontinued temporarily during the night.

THE PLANE took off from Brunswick at 8 p.m. Tuesday with four officers and 7 enlisted men aboard. It carried sufficient fuel for 14 hours of flight and was due back at its home base here at 7 a.m. Planes from NASB took off in search of the aircraft when it failed to reach port. The Navy said no reason for the accident has been determined. The fact that the life raft was floating on the water may indicate that some of the crew had time to escape.

Thank you for sharing that with us Kevin.
-Aaron

For older saws:
Tune the H side so that it 4-strokes (burbles) at WOT unloaded and just cleans up when under load.
When you lift cutting load, the saw should immediately revert to 4-stroking.  Fine tune the transition point for the wood you're cutting.

Thanks Kevin.   Neat old planes. We had one dropping fire retardant on the local wildfire we had here last week!   Later models were outfitted with the addition of a turbo jet motor next to each radial engine, unique plane...
