In the eastern part of Syria, forces backed by the U.S. and its allies say they are pushing ISIS back. And U.S. officials say those forces are becoming more cohesive, and in turn more successful.
My Grandfather – Marvin Beck – was aboard the USS Missouri during WWII — rumor has it he is credited with saving several of his fellow sailors lives during battle. He was a tall (6.5) strawberry-blond (mostly red) haired FIREBALL 😉
Very Cool. I love to see stuff like this! Wish I could have lended a hand! That is one mean PT Boat!-SF
It was a run-in with the enemy that was too close for comfort, and more than 70 years later, the details remain vivid in the mind of a Navy veteran who served aboard a legendary ship.
U.S. Navy Torpedoman 1st Class James Nerison was part of the PT-305 crew patrolling off the coast of Corsica in 1944 when a pair of German destroyers locked onto them. The Higgins Industries Patrol-Torpedo boats were known for their speed and maneuverability, but they were up against superior Nazi firepower.

As Donald Trump’s candidacy has risen in popularity among voters, an anti-Christian rhetoric appears to also be on the rise.
Although conservatives are used to seeing this type of stuff from the left, several pro-Trump news outlets have taken what appears to be a bias against candidates of faith. Matt Drudge ran the following headlines, the most recent Cruz headline being from March 12 of this year.
It’s not uncommon for Christians of all types to lay hands on one another in prayer. But to Drudge, this is quite a newsworthy occurrence. Incidentally, Drudge has yet to cover any of the similar activities Donald Trump has participated in, blessings in tongues included. Michelle Malkin at Conservative Review points out Drudge’s blatant double standard when it comes to the faith of presidential candidates:
