SO YOU WANT TO READ A STORY AND YOU WANT IT TO BE TRUE TOO! My note: LeRoy Funk (8/16/1915 - 10/23/1996) was my mother’s brother and he dictated this story to his wife Delores before he passed. He came from a small town in South Dakota and had 5 sisters and 2 brothers. I found the crew information from the 8th Air Force Historical Society webpage. (Aircraft Missing in action from August 8, 1943) He was a (TSgt) gunner on a B-17 and was shot down near Antwerp Belgium. He eventually made it back to England. This is his story as he told it.

In this booklet, the author, a U.S. Air Force Cold War veteran, offers interesting color photos of "roundels" (the insignia on an aircraft's wings & fuselage) that display the country of origin...sometimes, in striking national colors...

Here's hoping the reader enjoys the interesting, sometimes colorful, world of military aircraft insignia; they are used by large nations but also other smaller nations like Ireland, Lithuania, Malta, Slovakia...& many others!

This article outlines Joseph Stalin's attempts, from the 1930s until his death, to democratize the government of the Soviet Union. This statement, and the article, will astonish many, and outrage some. In fact my own amazement at the results of the research I'm reporting on led me to write this article. I had suspected for a long time that the Cold War version of Soviet history had serious flaws. Still, I was unprepared for the extent of the falsehoods I had been taught as fact. This story is well known in Russia, where respect for, even admiration of, Stalin is common. Yuri Zhukov, the main Russian historian who sets forth the paradigm of "Stalin as Democrat" and whose works are the mos ...

In the early 20th century, aviation was in its infancy. Military aviation began to take shape. The U.S. Army Signal Corps' "Aeronautical Division" was designated as the first military aviation unit in the U.S. armed forces. With the help of men like the Wright Brothers (of Dayton, Ohio) and aircraft builder, Glenn Curtiss, things began to develop. This is a photographic journey showing airplanes and key personnel of the time (1908-1918). The United States Air Force of today has those early aviators of the U.S. Army to thank for its success and growth.
