Experimentation on prisoners by the Japanese during World War II.(1/81)


The relationships among age, chronic conditions, and healthcare costs. (2/81)

OBJECTIVE: To learn how age and chronic illness affect costs in the Veterans Affairs healthcare system. STUDY DESIGN: Veterans Affairs patients 65 years or older were identified from administrative data. We noted their healthcare utilization, cost, and diagnosis of any of 29 common chronic conditions (CCs). We examined how those 80 years or older differed from the younger patients. RESULTS: The Department of Veterans Affairs spent dollars 8.5 billion to treat 1.6 million older patients in fiscal year 2000. Age was less important than chronic illness in explaining cost differences. The oldest patients incurred a mean of dollars 1295 greater costs than the younger patients, primarily because they were more likely to have a high-cost CC. The oldest patients incurred higher total costs than the younger patients in only 14 of 29 groups defined by CC. Long-term care accounted for most of the extra cost of the oldest patients. When this cost was excluded, the oldest patients incurred only dollars 266 more cost than the younger patients. CONCLUSIONS: Growth in the population of the oldest patients will increase the number of individuals with CCs requiring long-term care. With its limited long-term care benefit, Medicare will avoid much of this financial consequence. In contrast, the financial risk of acute and long-term care gives the Department of Veterans Affairs an incentive to develop strategies to prevent CCs associated with long-term care.  (+info)

Cutaneous melioidosis in a man who was taken as a prisoner of war by the Japanese during World War II. (3/81)

Melioidosis, an infection caused by the gram-negative bacillus Burkholderia pseudomallei, is endemic to Southeast Asia and Northern Australia. Human infection is acquired through contact with contaminated water via percutaneous inoculation. Clinical manifestations range from skin and soft tissue infection to pneumonia with sepsis. We report a case of a man who was taken as a prisoner of war by the Japanese during World War II who presented with a nonhealing ulcer on his right hand 62 years after the initial exposure.  (+info)

The mobile Army surgical hospital (MASH): a military and surgical legacy. (4/81)

Operation Iraqi Freedom was perhaps the last military campaign that will ever utilize the services of a mobile Army surgical hospital (MASH). The Army has now essentially replaced the MASH with combat surgical hospitals (CSH) and forward surgical teams (FST). MASH units were designed as mobile, flexible, forward-deployed military hospitals, providing care for the wounded near the frontlines of the battlefield. These hospitals not only saved thousands of lives during war but also greatly influenced the delivery of trauma and critical care in civilian hospitals. The MASH was made popular by the television series of the 1970s, depicting the 4077th during the Korean War. Although a comical series, these television episodes provided viewers with a glimpse of life in a MASH during time of war. This article chronicles the history of the MASH from its inception during World War II to recent experiences in Operation Iraqi Freedom.  (+info)

They starved so that others be better fed: remembering Ancel Keys and the Minnesota experiment. (5/81)

During World War II, 36 conscientious objectors participated in a study of human starvation conducted by Ancel Keys and his colleagues at the University of Minnesota. The Minnesota Starvation Experiment, as it was later known, was a grueling study meant to gain insight into the physical and psychologic effects of semistarvation and the problem of refeeding civilians who had been starved during the war. During the experiment, the participants were subjected to semistarvation in which most lost >25% of their weight, and many experienced anemia, fatigue, apathy, extreme weakness, irritability, neurological deficits, and lower extremity edema. In 2003-2004, 18 of the original 36 participants were still alive and were interviewed. Many came from the Historic Peace Churches (Mennonite, Brethren, and Quaker), and all expressed strong convictions about nonviolence and wanting to make a meaningful contribution during the war. Despite ethical issues about subjecting healthy humans to starvation, the men interviewed were unanimous in saying that they would do it all over again, even after knowing the suffering that they had experienced. After the experiment ended, many of the participants went on to rebuilding war-torn Europe, working in the ministries, diplomatic careers, and other activities related to nonviolence.  (+info)

The history of surgical teaching and the department of surgery. (7/81)

Undergraduate surgical teaching in Singapore began 100 years ago, when the Medical School was founded. A significant step had been taken to enable local students to be trained in and to attain the diploma of Licentiate in Medicine and Surgery (LMS). Plans for postgraduate education were temporarily derailed when the Japanese occupied Singapore in 1942. Postgraduate surgical teaching received an official boost when the primary Australasian examinations were conducted in Singapore in 1957, providing a platform for surgical independence when the higher degree, the Master of Medicine (M Med) in Surgery, was established in 1970. Currently, the Joint Committee on Specialist Training, comprising the Division of Graduate Medical Studies, the Academy of Medicine, Singapore and the Ministry of Health, oversees the training of surgical specialists in Singapore.  (+info)

This study investigated the impact of violent experiences during childhood, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and appetitive aggression on everyday violent behavior in Burundian females with varying participation in war. Moreover, group differences in trauma-related and aggression variables were expected. Appetitive aggression describes the perception of violence perpetration as fascinating and appealing and is a common phenomenon in former combatants. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with 157 females, either former combatants, supporters of armed forces or civilians during the civil war in Burundi. The PTSD Symptom Scale Interview was used to assess PTSD symptom severity, the Appetitive Aggression Scale to measure appetitive aggression and the Domestic and Community Violence Checklist to assess both childhood maltreatment and recent aggressive behavior. Former combatants had experienced more traumatic events, perpetrated more violence and reported higher levels of appetitive aggression than
Major Alliances during World War II There were two major alliances during World War II: the Axis and the Allies. The three principal partners in the Axis alliance were Germany, Italy, and Japan. These three countries recognized German domination over most of continental Europe; Italian domination over the Mediterranean Sea; and Japanese domination over East Asia and the Pacific. The Allied Powers were led by Great Britain, the United States, and the Soviet Union. Formation of the Axis Alliance Although the Axis partners never developed institutions to coordinate foreign or military policy as the Allies did, the Axis partners had two common interests: 1) territorial expansion and foundation of empires based on military conquest and the overthrow of the post-World War I international order; and 2) the destruction or neutralization of Soviet Communism. On November 1, 1936, Germany and Italy, reflecting their common interest in destabilizing the European order, announced a Rome-Berlin Axis one week ...

This thesis explores the dingbat apartment, a building type that proliferated in Los Angeles between 1957 and 1964. Following an established tradition of low-rise multi-family residential buildings, the dingbat emerged as an affordable and accessible housing solution for the citys unrelenting population growth and rising land values in the decade after World War II. A variety of speculative developers took advantage of zoning regulations, financial incentives, and innovative building materials and techniques to create formulaic, yet individualistic modern buildings that were easily produced and quickly consumed. The success of these developers would forever alter the built environment of Los Angeles, and this thesis examines the economic, social, cultural, and political factors that both encouraged and eventually ended the widespread development of the dingbat apartment ...
6/12/2006 • Gear, World War II The full contribution of intelligence to the winning of World War II is clear only now, nearly sixty years after that conflict. Over the intervening decades it has been discovered that throughout the war the intelligence services of the Western powers (particularly the British) intercepted, broke, and read significant portions of the German militarys top-secret message traffic. That cryptographic intelligence, disseminated to Allied commanders under the code name Ultra, played a significant role in the effort to defeat the Germans and achieve an Allied victory.. The breaking of the high-level German codes began with the efforts of the Polish secret service in the interwar period. By creating a copy of the basic German enciphering machine, the Poles managed to read German signal traffic throughout the 1930s with varying degrees of success. However, shortly before the Munich conference in September 1938, the Germans made alterations to their enciphering ...
[email protected] World War II Veteran Honors Citrus College Counselor for Military and Community Service Glendora, Calif.

Observer correspondent. I always thought if we went down, it would be on a bomb run in a tremendous barrage, but we hadnt even reached our target when it happened, recounted World War II B-17 airplane pilot J. Francis Angier. I saw flak bursting ahead about eight or 10 miles, and I was starting to bank left when a barrage got us. There was about 1,500 gallons of gasoline in the wing, and the plane was on fire. I knew I couldnt save it, and, eventually, the explosion blew me out of the plane.. The 84-year-old Williston resident thought for a minute, reliving the harrowing experience as he shared his story in the Dorothy Alling Library on Saturday as part of a nationwide collection of World War II veterans stories.. When the plane exploded, it was falling tail first, so all the debris fell with me and around me. If I opened my parachute, it would have caught fire, or caught some debris and been dragged down. So I fell all the way down til I couldnt go any further. I went through a little ...
Casualties in World War II are notoriously difficult to calculate; while the Americans, British, Canadians and Germans gave their soldiers identification tags, The Soviets, Japanese, Italians and other combatants often did not. Add to that the huge numbers of irregular forces without any identification, or nom de guerre, and its almost impossible to generate accurate numbers. Some historian will someday do a complete, funded study of casualties, but for now, here is an estimated number of casualties to give the reader some idea of the level of human destruction. Since this page went live in 2000, some estimates have raised the number of dead from 35 million to 50 million. Current thought affords 72 million casualties worldwide, but not all sources agree with that conclusion. There are a number of errors in the document; I will endeavor to correct them as soon as I can. As I just wrote, accurate casualty analysis of even the United States, which not only documented its army extensively and ...

World War II (WW II) drove a vast increase in production, militarized the production and transportation of commodity, while introduced many new environmental consequences, which can still be seen today. World War II was wide ranging in its human, animals, and material destruction. The postwar effects of World War II, both ecological and social, are still visible decades after the conflict. During World War II, advanced technology was used to create aircraft, which were used in air raids. Aircraft during the war were used for transporting resources from different military bases and dropping bombs. These activities damaged habitats.[6] Similar to wildlife, ecosystems also suffer from the production of the noise pollution from military aircraft. During World War II, aircraft acted as a vector for the transportation of exotics whereby weeds and cultivated species were bought to oceanic island ecosystems by way of aircraft landing strips used for refueling and staging station during operations in the ...

Hardback, 50. Medicine and Victory: British Military Medicine in the Second World War is an important and archivally well-grounded study at the intersection of military and medical history that points to a marked improvement in the provision of British medical care during the course of the conflict. Defeat in the early years of the war led to many problems. The level of care available in the field was affected by the disruption attendant on defeat and rapid retreat. In no theatre of the war, however, did the medical services suffer a complete collapse. The planning of medical arrangements left much to be desired, as in Norway and Malaya, but there was no need for commissions of inquiry, such as those which followed the campaigns in Gallipoli and Mesopotamia during World War One. Harrison argues that, although the early campaigns of World War Two permitted little in the way of innovation, they at least provided some valuable experience. During the campaigns in Norway and France, it became ...

Unlike in most European countries occupied by Nazi Germany-where the Germans sought and found true collaborators among the locals-in occupied Poland there was no official collaboration either at the political or at the economic level.[71][72] Poland also never officially surrendered to the Germans.[73] Under German occupation, the Polish army continued to fight underground, as Armia Krajowa and forest partisans - Leśni. The Polish resistance movement in World War II in German-occupied Poland was the largest resistance movement in all of occupied Europe.[74] As a result, Polish citizens were unlikely to be given positions of any significant authority.[71][72] The vast majority of the pre-war citizenry collaborating with the Nazis was the German minority in Poland which was offered one of several possible grades of German citizenship.[75] In 1939, before the German invasion of Poland, 800,000 people declared themselves as members of the German minority in Poland mostly in Pomerania and Western ...

For the nations who were deeply involved in World War II, the war effort was total, with women volunteering in huge numbers alongside men. At home, women filled traditionally male positions, taking both active and supporting positions in factories, government organizations, military auxiliaries, resistance groups, and more. While relatively few women were at the front lines as combatants, many found themselves the victims of bombing campaigns and invading armies. By the end of the war, more than 2 million women had worked in war industries. Hundreds of thousands had volunteered as nurses or members of home defense units, or as full-time members of the military. In the Soviet Union alone, some 800,000 women served alongside men in army units during the war. Collected here are images that capture some of what these women experienced and endured during the war. A note: Most of the captions are from the original sources from the 1940s, complete with the frequent use of the term girl to describe ...

As the war continued, more and more of Camp Roosevelts usual pool of residents became involved in formal defense work, and administrators decided to shut the camp down. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers retained the site and planned to keep it up, as plenty of enthusiasm still remained for resuming the Cross-Florida Barge Canal project. Before that could happen, however, a more pressing problem emerged for the camp to tackle.. As World War II came to a close, the young men and women who had left to join the military or serve in other defense capacities came home, looking to start new lives as adult civilians. This sudden surge triggered a dire shortage of adequate housing. Husbands and wives and sometimes children frequently found themselves living with other family members, not so much for lack of funds but simply for lack of available homes to buy or rent. Civic leaders scrambled for solutions, and in Marion County facilities like the small houses at Camp Roosevelt became an attractive option. ...

Abstract This article examines the social, medical, and military contexts that shaped the cycle of World War II demobilization films released in the United States between 1946 and 1951. The focus is primarily on the ways in which loss of sight, experienced through combat, was dramatized and narrativized in demobilization films. The discussion specifically concerns two films at either end of the demobilization cycle, Pride of the Marines (1946) and Bright Victory (1951), both of which were adapted from literary texts. Written accounts of war injuries were frequent as sources for demobilization films, partly to lend authenticity to the narratives, but also, in the case of these two films, to offer symbolic freight through which the ontological and medical dimensions of blindness could be explored. The article discusses the ways in which cases of blindness highlighted the problematic of place and home in the mid-1940s. Although the narrative trajectory of many demobilization films moves toward the ...

That rainy morning I lost the life I was born to. I never trusted anyone again.. Then there is the second breakfast. After my mother divorced my father, I lived with my grandmother on the ramshackle farm Uncle Carl bought her before he joined the Navy in World War II. Uncle Carl was my mothers brother, my grandmothers only son. He said that if anything happened to him in the war, she would have the farm.. Hands on her wide hips, my grandmother stated, proudly, that on her farm she had more land than the eye could take in. How many acres those were, I dont know.. How a woman, then in her 60s, labored 16 hours a day as she did, I still do not know. She was rarely in the house, and when she was, she was dusting, scrubbing, disinfecting, swatting flies, washing and starching and ironing and then baking all of our bread, pies, cakes, canning and pickling and preserving and then tatting, embroidering, crocheting.. When Im talking about my grandmother and her farm, people sometimes ask me how I ...

Introduction. S6 HISTORY Study on the First World War Sub-topics: Results of World War One Q: How did the First World War affect the world? A: The First World War was the most destructive war in the history of mankind. It mobilized all the resources of the combatant countries. Nearly all European countries joined the war. The First World War started in 1914 and ended in 1918. The war lasted for 4 years and caused total destruction of the world. It affected the political, economic, social, cultural, and military development of the world in the following decades. There was little political stability in Europe after 1918. The end of the war incited revolutions everywhere. The 1917 Russian Revolution was an example. Those revolutions brought an end to absolution in Europe. The great dynasties of Romanov of Russia and Hohenzollern of Germany had collapsed. Moreover, the war brought an end to the Hapsburg Empire and Turkish Empire.The collapsed empires was replaced by new forms of government, for ...
Albions Dance was inspired by the authors memory of her childhood ballet teacher who danced in Britain during World War Two. Dancers memoirs and the writings of dance critics are central resources for this book that asks how ballet in Britain survived during the war and how the end of war resulted in a newly refined national ballet. Exploring the so-called ballet boom during World War Two, the larger story of this book is one of how art and artists thrive during conflict, and how they respond pragmatically and creatively to privation and duress. The way ballet participated in propagandistic discourse and answered to a public mood of pragmatism and idealism are part of this story. Also considered are the distinct roles of dance critics, male and female dancers, producers, audiences, and choreographers. Each population contributed to the creation of a uniquely British ballet identity. After the war, British ballet emerged on the international stage demonstrating superb qualities of dramatic acuity,
World War II (1941-45) ushered in a new era of benefits, in part because Congress was determined to avoid the mistakes and difficulties that had marked the demobilization of forces in World War I. Influenced as well by the social-welfare policies of the New Deal, Congress by 1945 had created the most comprehensive benefits program in our history. Since then subsequent legislation has expanded the original program for the 16.1 million veterans of World War II and extended those benefits to 6.7 million Korean veterans, 3.1 million veterans of the officially designated Cold War (1955-64), and 6.6 million veterans of Vietnam, at a cost since 1945 of $250 billion.. Under the direction of the Veterans Administration, a broad range of benefits and services is available to veterans from the moment of discharge until death and even beyond, for in certain circumstances benefits continue for survivors. As in World War I, most of these benefits are extended to the able-bodied as well as the ...
I would like to make decisions within the government, rather than through the ruling party, he said. Japans newly elected parliament is expected to convene Sept. 16, at which time he is likely to be elected prime minister given his partys overwhelming strength in the legislature. Hatoyama also said he would announce a Cabinet lineup the day he is appointed. Such a timetable would allow Hatoyama to assume office in time to attend a Group of 20 summit in Pittsburgh and a meeting of the United Nations General Assembly, both set for September. Diplomacy - and particularly ties with Washington - were also likely to dominate his first months in office. U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates is planning to visit Tokyo in October to discuss the U.S.-Japan military alliance. The United States has about 50,000 troops deployed across Japan under a mutual security pact that has been in place for most of the post-World War II era. Hatoyamas Democrats have said they want to re-examine Tokyos relations with ...

Richmond Barth (1909-1989) was the first modern African American sculptor to achieve real critical success. His accessible naturalism led to unprecedented celebrity for an artist during the 1930s and 1940s. After four years of academic training at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Barth reaped the benefits of the 1920s New Negro Arts Renaissance. He also endured difficulties as a gay, Roman Catholic, Creole sculptor working during the nations post-World War II era. He gave his black subjects in particular an intensity and sensuality that attracted important European American patrons and the press. Much of Barth s biography is recorded here for the first time in tandem with analyses and interpretations of his sculpture. Born to Creole parents in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, Barth s art brought him out of poverty. At the height of his fame, he was often criticized for not talking about injustices African Americans faced. He expected his art to speak not only for itself, but also for him. He
Human Rights, State Sovereignty and Medical Ethics: Examining Struggles Around Coercive Sterilisation of Romani Women examines the mobilized use by people and groups of the international human rights law framework to move legal, policy and ultimately social change at national and local level. One particular case study is examined in detail: efforts by Romani women in the Czech Republic and Slovakia to secure legal remedy for coercive sterilization. International legal aspects of these cases are examined in detail. The book concludes by endeavouring to answer questions concerning the nature of international law and the evolution of the post-World War II international human rights framework, the structure of national sovereignty, and the potential impact of both on human autonomy ...
Within a month of forming the new government, Chirac was able to present to the Assembly a plan for privatization. The plan called for the privatization of 65 enterprises over a five year period (A Five-Year Plan for Privatization!) The 65 enterprises had a workforce of 900 thousand and were thought to have a market value of 300 billion francs. If this plan were to be carried out it would involve privatization on a greater scale and at a faster rate than that carried out by the Thatcher Government in the United Kingdom. This plan went far beyond reprivatizing the enterprises that had been nationalized by the Socialists during the period 1981 to 1986. Included in the privatization plan were enterprises such as the Renault automobile company which Charles de Gaulle had nationalized in the immediate post-World War II period. François Mitterand characterized these enterprises as national assets. Probably few outside of France would have characterized Renault as a national asset. Mitterand opposed ...
Unearthed articles from the 1960s detail how nuclear waste was buried beneath the Earths surface by Halliburton & Co. for decades as a means of disposing the by-products of post-World War II atomic energy production.. Fracking is already a controversial practice on its face; allowing U.S. industries to inject slurries of toxic, potentially carcinogenic compounds deep beneath the planets surface - as a means of see no evil waste disposal - already sounds ridiculous, dangerous, and stupid anyway without even going into further detail.. Alleged fracking links to the contamination of the public water supply and critical aquifers, as well as ties to earthquake upticks near drilling locations that are otherwise not prone to seismic activity have created uproar in the years since the 2005 Cheney loophole, which allowed the industry to circumvent the Safe Drinking Water Act by exempting fracking fluids, thus fast tracking shale fracking as a source of cheap natural gas.. Now, it is apparent that ...
In Italy we are only just holding our ground. This week we have destroyed the Monastery of Monte Cassino. Questions have been asked in Parliament about the destruction of ancient monuments, and there has been an awful lot of gabble about it, in fact, this question of the preservation of historic buildings has been turned into a burning war issue. People talk about the value of civilization of the great architectural monuments of the past, but not those who have sons and brothers, husbands and lovers, doing the fighting. We are not giving our men so that they may save the manifestations of civilization, but so that they may save civilization it self. Civilization ultimately survives in the minds of men, not in bricks and mortar, oil and canvas, print and parchment, and the survival of civilization depends on the civilization of civilized men. In war civilized men die. We cannot afford to lose our civilized men for material things. Things can be replaced. What man has made once he can make again. ...
The George H. Williams Jr. World War I Aviation Library includes books, serials, documents, photographs, and other archival materials relating to aviation of that period collected by Williams Jr. himself and other donors. The largest and most important collection in that record group is the Ed Ferko Collection containing more than 50,000 photo prints, about 10,000 negatives, as well as roughly 200 annotated original photo albums from German aviators. The papers contain documents sorted by units, personnel, and official reports from all fronts, notes, moving images, and artifacts. George H. Williams Jr. was born on Apr. 7, 1915 in Frost, Texas. He acquired a Bachelors Degree in Business from Baylor University in 1939. During World War II, he was a Signal Officer with the 94th Signal Battalion, which was attached to Gen. George S. Pattons Third Army, that was engaged in the Battle of the Bulge. In his civilian career he was with the mortgage department of the Equitable Life Insurance Co., first ...

Oklahoma women made vital contributions toward victory in both the first and second world wars, serving in a wide variety of capacities in the armed forces, in industry, and on the home front. Given the late entry of the United States into World War I in 1917 (the war began in 1914), American women had less time to mobilize than their European counterparts. However, they still found numerous ways to become involved in the war effort. At home they joined men in debating sedition laws and standardized food prices, witnessed the federal government take control of the railroad industry and large sectors of the economy, and watched as more than two million men volunteered for or were drafted into the armed forces.. Approximately ninety thousand Oklahoma men served. More than one thousand were killed and 6,286 wounded, causing a great impact on families. Oklahoma women shouldered the burden of providing for their families while their husbands and/or fathers were away. Almost half a million women ...
It is a great pleasure to greet all the good friends of the United Nations who have gathered for this observance of the International Day of Commemoration in memory of the victims of the Holocaust. I welcome in particular the Holocaust survivors and World War II veterans who have joined this solemn ceremony. Ladies and Gentlemen, Courage is a rare and precious commodity. Today, we celebrate those who had the courage to care. Throughout the Second World War, Jews, Roma and Sinti, Soviet prisoners of war and others who failed to conform to Hitlers perverted ideology of Aryan perfection were systematically murdered in death camps such as Auschwitz-Birkenau. But some were able to avoid the slaughter. They escaped because a few brave souls risked their lives and their families to rescue Jews and other victims of persecution from almost certain death. Some sheltered the intended victims in their homes; others helped families to obtain safe passage. Some of the accounts of the rescuers have achieved ...

More. This book tells the story of Jewish survivors who pioneered Holocaust research in the immediate aftermath of World War II. Just liberated from Nazi terror, amidst political turmoil and privation, physically exhausted and traumatized women and men founded historical commissions and documentation centers throughout Europe to chronicle the Nazi Final Solution. By comparing the cases of France, Poland, and the Displaced Persons camps in Allied-occupied Germany, Austria, and Italy, the book explores the motivations and methods which guided survivors in compiling archives of tens of thousands of Nazi documents, eyewitness accounts and questionnaires, ghetto and camp literature, wartime diaries, and artifacts, and in publishing dozens of historical works. Its comparative method illuminates the ...

Osur, Alan M. Separate and Unequal: Race Relations in the AAF During World War II (University Press of the Pacific, 2004).. Race relations between white and black Americans in the Army Air Forces (AAF) during World War II ran the gamut from harmonious to hostile, depending upon the unique circumstances existing within each unit, command, and theater. In analyzing racial policy as it was implemented throughout the chain of command, are a number of themes relevant for an understanding of the utilization of African Americans during the war. First, the AAF never willingly accepted black soldiers. This service had totally excluded them for over two decades before they were permitted to enter, and then used them only reluctantly. The fact that the AAF even opened its doors to African Americans and proceeded to make additional opportunities available to them was due to pressures aimed at the War Department and the AAF. Individuals and organizations within the black community and white liberals in and ...
John Harrison and Robert Harrison were Harlowton, Montana, residents who served in Europe in World War II. This collection consists primarily of letters written by John C. and Robert Harrison to their parents in Harlowton and Bozeman, Montana, while they served in England, Belgium, and Germany during World War II. The letters discuss the war, the Harrison family, wartime Europe, and life in the military, including a letter from Robert in a prisoner-of-war camp in Germany. Johns letters to his mother also mention Montana politics including references to Lee Metcalf. A large group of the correspondence consists of typed transcriptions of letters from John C. to his wife China. Also included in the collection is miscellaneous correspondence (1943-1946), clippings (1940s), and a writing (1944) by John Thompson describing the military action in the hundred days after the Normandy invasion. In addition there are photocopies of a speech (1950s) to a U.S. Congressional Committee concerning ...
In 1958, the Medical Follow-up Agency (MFUA) of the Institute of Medicine began a project to identify twins who had jointly entered military service during World War II. In the end, MFUA identified nearly 16,000 White male twin pairs born 1917-1927 in which both members had served in the military. These twins comprise the National Academy of Sciences-National Research Council World War II Twin Registry (NAS-NRC Twin Registry). This collection represents data from service records, a mailed questionnaire assessing zygosity, and repeating health surveys, including information on education, employment history, and earnings. There are nine datasets associated with this restricted-use collection: 1) The Administrative dataset includes demographic, zygosity, service history, mortality, and questionnaire participation data; 2) The Service and Other Records dataset contains information collected from service records, physical exam data, cognitive test data, and dental records; 3) The Questionnaire 2 ...
In an October 21 editorial arguing against just such additional spending, the Post warned citizens to disregard progressive commentators (like myself) who offer the example of World War II, when the government ran deficits many times larger than the current one. In the deficit debates to come, the Post insisted, Mr. Obama should heed the hawks.. Wrong. The mobilization for World War II produced one of the most remarkable success stories in US economic history. War production not only overcame lingering weaknesses from the Great Depression but transformed the economic system into the modern powerhouse that became the platform for our long-running postwar prosperity. All this was achieved by the government, largely with borrowed money. By wars end Washington had piled up federal debt totaling around 120 percent of annual GDP (nearly double todays debt level). During the wartime emergency the government took charge of the economy and rapidly shifted the industrial system to armaments while ...
The Kingdom of Italy (Italian: Regno dItalia) was a state forged in 1861 by the unification of Italy under the influence of the Kingdom of Sardinia; it existed until 1946 when the Italians opted for a republican constitution.. During the time of the regime of the National Fascist Party under the dictatorship of Benito Mussolini from 1922 to his ousting in 1943, the name often given by historians to the Kingdom of Italy during this period is Fascist Italy. Under fascism, the Kingdom allied with Nazi Germany in World War II until 1943. In the remaining two years of World War II, the Kingdom of Italy switched sides to the Allies after ousting Mussolini as Prime Minister and banned the Fascist party. The remnant fascist state that continued fighting against the Allies was a puppet state of Nazi Germany, the Italian Social Republic, still led by Mussolini and his loyalist Fascists in northern Italy. Shortly after the war, civil discontent led to a referendum in 1946 on whether Italy would remain a ...
As head of Japans infamous Unit 731 (a covert biological and chemical warfare research and development unit of the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II), Dr. Shiro Ishii (head of medicine) carried out violent human experimentation of tens of thousands during the Second Sino-Japanese War and World War II.. Ishii was responsible for testing vivisection techniques without any anesthesia on human prisoners. For the uninitiated, vivisection is the act of conducting experimental surgery on living creatures (with central nervousness) and examining their insides for scientific purposes.. So basically, he was giving unnecessary surgery to prisoners by opening them all the way up, keeping them alive and not using any anesthetic.. During these experiments he would also force pregnant women to abort their babies. He also played God by subjecting his prisoners to change in physiological conditions and inducing strokes, heart attacks, frost bite, and hypothermia. Ishii considered these subjects ...
The White House announced this morning that Keeble will received the Medal of Honor posthumously in a ceremony scheduled for 2:30 p.m. March 3, 2008. Keeble is one of the most decorated Soldiers in North Dakota history. A veteran of World War II and the Korean War, he was born in 1917 in Waubay, S.D., on the Sisseton-Wahpeton Sioux Reservation, which extended into North Dakota. He spent most of his life in the Wahpeton, N.D. area, where he attended an Indian school. In 1942 Keeble joined the North Dakota National Guard, and in October that year, found himself embroiled in some of the fiercest hand-to-hand combat of World War II on Guadalcanal.. Guadalcanal. Guadalcanal seemed to be on his mind a lot, Russell Hawkins, Keebles stepson, said. His fellow Soldiers said he had to fight a lot of hand-to-hand fights with the Japanese, so he saw their faces. Every now and then he would get a far-away look in his eyes, and I knew he was thinking about those men and the things he had to do. At ...
Barnett charged publishers $25 per week for access to the latest stories. Because most black papers were weeklies, the service began with mail delivery instead of delivery by wire. At the start, packets were sent out once a week, eventually increasing to three mailings per week.. By 1935, the ANP was serving about 225 newspapers and magazines across the country. After World War II its membership grew to include more than 100 African newspapers as an increasing number of countries on the African continent moved toward independence.. The Fight Against Military Segregation and Segregation of the Blood Supply. During World War II, Barnett and other black journalists pressured the U. S. government to accredit black journalists as war correspondents. Barnett traveled widely and wrote many accounts on the adverse effects of segregation in the armed forces. (For an example of segregation in the Navy, read Dorie Miller, Pearl Harbor Hero.) Using the ANP to reach black Americans all over the country, he ...
Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882 - 1945) was the 32nd President of the United States of America from 1933-45. He presided over the majority of the Great Depression, which did not end until the attack on Pearl Harbor,[1] and led the United States in World War II against the Axis Powers; he built the New Deal Coalition of voters and interest groups which dominated American politics into the 1960s. He is still the great hero to liberals but castigated by conservatives for shifting the nation to the left, growing the federal government, imposing regulations on business, following a no-growth economic policy, catering to labor unions, and building a permanent New Deal Coalition. On the other hand, conservatives admire his strong military leadership that led the Allies to victory in record time in World War II. His New Deal was a very large, complex interlocking set of programs designed to produce relief (especially government jobs for the unemployed),[2] recovery (of the economy), and reform (by which ...

Twenty-four years after Hanford stopped making plutonium, taxpayers are paying billions to clean up the radioactive witchs brew left behind. Decontamination of the 560-square-mile Eastern Washington reservation consumed $2 billion in Obama stimulus dollars, making a very modest dent in work to be done.. The cost of building a plant to vitrify (turn into glass) Hanfords radioactive wastes was once pegged at $4 billion, with operation slated for 2001. The Department of Energy currently puts operation as beginning in 2019 at a cost of $13 billion.. Hanford is the ultimate proof of a truism: If youre going to think big, be obligated to think through big, potentially negative consequences of what you propose doing.. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer first went over in 1979 to investigate mismanagement of Americas biggest concentration of high-level radioactive waste. Decades have passed, but Yogi Berras words come to mind: Its deja vu all over again. -- The 149 old single-shell waste tanks, dating ...
Željko Ražnatović was born in Brežice, a small border town in Slovenian Styria, FPR Yugoslavia. His father, Veljko Ražnatović, served as a decorated officer in the SFR Yugoslav Air Force, earning high rank for his notable World War II involvement on the Partisan side, and was stationed in Slovenian Styria at the time of Željkos birth.[1]. He spent part of his childhood in Zagreb (SR Croatia) and Pančevo (SR Serbia), before his fathers job eventually took the family to the Yugoslav capital of Belgrade (SR Serbia), which Ražnatović considered his hometown. His father was born in Cetinje (SR Montenegro), a descendant of the Ražnatović brotherhood, and had taken part in the Yugoslav liberation of Prishtina (Kosovo-Metohija) in World War II.[2]. Ražnatović grew up in Belgrade[3] with three older sisters in a strict, militaristic household with regular beatings administered by his father. In a 1991 interview he recalled: He didnt really hit me in a classical sense, hed basically ...
