This past Saturday, a legend passed away! Wilfred DeFour died in his home in Harlem, NY at the age of 100. Some of you have no idea who this man was! So let me tell you...In the early 1940’s, racial segregation and discrimination were at an all time high in the United States! If you were a black person in those days, you barely had any rights! Yet a small group of African American men had a dream! They wanted to join the military and become fighter pilots. In those days, blacks were considered to have neither the skill, nor the intelligence to fly aircraft! But these brave men defied the odds, even in the face of constant ridicule and badgering from the white Air Force recruits! In fact, whites refused to train with these men simply because of the colour of their skin and so they were shipped off to train at the Tuskegee Army Airfield, in Alabama. Their program was considered an experiment and many expected that they would fail! But these men proved everyone wrong and they passed with flying colours, becoming the first all black fighter squadron to be deployed during World War II. The Tuskegee Airmen, also known as Red Tails, due the tails of their aircraft being painted red, as a way of separating them from the white pilots! Wilfred DeFour was among the members of that squadron! These trailblazers paved the way for many African Americans, male and female, to pursue their dream of flying in both the Navy and Air Force! Today, blacks still make up a very small percentage of military pilots, but at least that barrier was broken back in 1943! Pilots of colour, both military and civilian, owe a debt of gratitude to the Tuskegee Airmen! If you would like to read more about them, please see the link in my bio! 👨🏾✈️

I’m so proud to be a woman. A girl. A lady. A citizen. I wouldn’t change a god damn thing. So thankful to my fellow females out there whom I know personally and those who dedicated their lives to doing the right thing, and being role models for millions of young girls to come. Because of women like you, I am who I am. Life may be easier if I was something different, but for me, I love who I am, who I can become, and who I WILL become.

M&M's stands for Mars & Murrie. M&M's were first sold in 1941, but when World War II began, they were sold exclusively to the U.S. military. Because the sugar coating prevented the candy from melting in warm climates like the Pacific, M&M's were issued in cardboard tubes as part of the soldier's rations 😯
What do you do with a World War left unfinished? You find time to finish the fight for world dominance. Japan conquered China and the British Far East. Italy was knocked out of the war. Germany and the USSR bloodied one another in the East over Poland. In the West a beachhead was established in France.
Good game guys. Next it's time to bring in Sean Bender, The Hammer. #axisandallies#seanbender#worldwar2#worldwartwo#cats
The Elf on the Shelf doesn't like to talk about what he did during the war. However, newly discovered photographs are finally bringing the truth to light. From 1941 to 1945, the Elf was a high ranking commissar for the NKVD. He led an assault unit during the battle of Stalingrad, was wounded at Kursk, and was present during the counter offensive that Autumn. He was named a Hero of the Soviet Union after the Second Battle of Târgu Frumos during which he halted the retreat of a battalion by publicly executing the battalion commander and leading the men in a successful counterattack. In 1945, he commanded the detachment which identified Hitler's remains.
No wonder he likes the red suit.
“The flotilla sailed on closer to its objective. At midnight antiaircraft-gun flashes and the glow of bombs to the northeast told Ryder and his men that 65 RAF bombers were making a prearranged diversionary attack. About an hour later, the Saint-Nazaire shoreline became faintly visible to the tense sailors and Commandos. All hands prepared for the perilous dash into the Loire estuary. Newman’s men pulled on Bergen rucksacks filled with grenades and explosives and strapped razor-sharp fighting knives to their legs. Time fuses were set on board the Campbeltown. A few miles away ashore, the RAF raid had made some Germans fearful that trouble was brewing. Huddled in his Saint-Nazaire command bunker, Kriegsmarine Captain Karl C. Mecke grew suspicious when he observed that the bombers were not flying in formation and one or two were making passes over the port. He fired off a signal to all defense posts: “I don’t understand the behavior of the enemy. I suspect parachutists.” Shortly after 0100 on 28 March, Mecke received a warning that unlighted ships were sailing up the Loire estuary leading into the Saint-Nazaire harbor. Rushing to an observation post, he squinted through a telescope and discerned the dark shapes of about 15 vessels. Captain Mecke called for searchlights to be switched on, and Ryder’s flotilla was outlined brightly. The Kriegsmarine officer was hesitant to give an order to open fire because one of the intruding vessels, the Campbeltown, appeared to be German, but the others did not. Yet all were flying German flags. He ordered a shell to be fired across the bow of the leading craft, and moments later the British fired a green flare that split into three red stars, the German recognition signal. Flanked by enemy guns on both sides of the Loire, the flotilla moved carefully between mudflats and sandbanks, churning steadily onward. It was less than a mile from the Normandie dock at 0130 when the German batteries opened up with a deafening roar. While flotilla guns fired back, the German flags were rapidly lowered and replaced by Royal Navy ensigns. The British deceit had paid off, and the raiders had managed to land”

Odessa, String and Wax on Wood, 2017. In October 1941, in retaliation for the killing of a Romanian Commander, Romanian and German troops committed one of the largest single mass murders of Jewish people. The soldiers initially executed individuals, but finding the process too time consuming and expensive, they herded them into 4 large warehouses and fired directly into 2 of the buildings through perforations they made in the walls. They subsequently filled the structures with gasoline and set them on fire. Between 25,000 and 34,000 people were shot, burned, and shelled while trapped inside. Odessa, Transnistria (now Ukraine)
