Ask and you shall receive sir.  Its an honor to say Happy Birthday to this man.  I encourage you all to do the same.  100 Years Old!  Also, mad props to Hallmark for creating birthday cards that literally cannot be written on without the pen skipping 19 times a sentence.  Dude is probably going to think I’m 10 years old based off this handwriting....
Forever grateful to the Tuskegee Airmen who escorted bombers in hostile airspace during WWII. In my father’s words, “They never never left our sides.” #tuskegeeairmen  #forevergrateful  #thegreatestgeneration  #gratitudeforallwhofightforourfreedom  #blackhistorymonth  #loveandmissyoudad  #whohq  #whowerethetuskegeeairmen? #sherrillsmith #penguinworkshop
On this day in 1945, U.S. Marines raised the American Flag atop Mt. Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima. Today, we remember and honor those brave men; being forever grateful for the sacrifices made so that we may live free today. God Bless America. 🇺🇸 #thegreatestgeneration
23 February, 1945. So of the most horrific fighting in the Pacific took place securing Mount Suribachi on Iwo Jima. #thegreatestgeneration #ww2
Funny the crazy stuff we hold on to. #blastfromthepast #alifetimeago #thegreatestgeneration #lbfoster
74 years ago today. My Dad, 19 years old, was there watching this. The battle for Iwo Jima went on for another month after this. More than 6000 Marines died there, and almost 20,000 were wounded. My Dad was one of the wounded. My Mom still has his Purple Heart. #thegreatestgeneration
So much history on this flag!! . John B (far left) has been collecting the signatures of Iwo Jima vets for well over 25 years. He’s some how managed to keep it in pristine condition over the years, despite the the hundred of people who have handled this treasure.  The only non-veteran names among the signatures are those of Joe Rosenthal (the photographer to capture probably the most iconic war image of all time) and the brother of flag-raiser, Harlan Block.
Happy 99th Poppa!!! #greatestgeneration #thegreatestgeneration
74 years ago today, #usmarines raised the flag on Iwo Jima. Words cannot describe the feeling and pride that myself and all Marines feel, being a part of this incredible organization that has held the line in defense of America throughout history. - If you haven't visited the Iwo memorial near Arlington National Cemetery yet, go! It's truly humbling. Inscribed on the panel below the statue is every conflict or war the Marines have fought in since their inception. I was proud and happy to see the conflict I myself participated in, Somalia, listed as well. - Semper Fi, Marines! - Uncommon valor was a common virtue. - - - - - - - - - #iwojima #wwii #ww2 #usmc #arlingtonnationalcemetery #veteran #marinecorps #history #thepacific #warinthepacific #marinecorpshistory #thegreatestgeneration #mtsuribachi #semperfidelis
What does this iconic symbol mean to you?  On this day in 1945 the marines raised the American flag on Iwo Jima.  To me this event/memorial statue represents a great country that was founded on the backs of people who had a broader vision of what life should or could be like. As like many other times in our nations history we face adversity. It seems like everyone has their own agenda and isn’t concerned about the greater good. I don’t want to bore you all with my rant or my thoughts on the stance of humanity at the present time. So I will just leave you with this question again. What does this image mean to you?  I would sincerely love to read some well thought out responses regardless of which side of the aisle you sit on. Please no vulgarity at attacks. #thegreatestgeneration #thelarsens #proudtobeanamerican #usa
- 🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲 -  On this day in 1945, U.S. Marines raised the American flag on Iwo Jima. #respect #usmc #patriotpride #usa #thegreatestgeneration
This day in 1945, perhaps the most iconic picture in this country’s history was taken atop Mt. Suribachi, on the Japanese island of Iwo Jima. Marines today are afforded a unparalleled level of pride paid for by the blood, sweat, and tears of those that wore the title before us. SEMPER FIDELIS 🇺🇸 #thegreatestgeneration #whenmenweremen

All alone under a soft rain and streetlamp I spent my life weighed down by a stone heart Drowning in irony and settling for anything Somewhere down the line all the wiring went faulty I'm scared shitless of failure and I'm staring out at where I wanna be  I just want to sell out my funeral I just want to be enough for everyone I just want to sell out my funeral Know that I fought until the lights were gone  #thewonderyears #lyrics #ijustwanttoselloutmyfuneral #thegreatestgeneration

This one is special to me personally. I'm a family oriented man, because that's the example I was exposed to my whole life, and to this day. But also, anything to do with the Army Air Corps has a special place in my heart. They've always been my biggest specific interest when it comes to WWII, ever since I was a child.

For all of my mother’s life we celebrated her birthday on February 20. When she was in her mid 80a and late stages of Alzheimer’s, I discovered that she was born a month earlier. Read about it in an old blog post, “Scandal in Mississippi in the 1920s.” https://wwwpenandpalette-susancushman.blogspot.com/2012/02/scandal-in-mississippi-in-1920s.html?m=1 #families #onlyinmississippi #thegreatestgeneration

2 years ago I had the honor and privilege to take a tour of Iwo Jima. I hiked to the top of Mt. Suribachi where the flag raising took place and stood on the black sand beach where so many of my brothers who came before me paid the ultimate sacrifice. #thegreatestgeneration #iwojima #japan #mtsuribachi #wwii #flagraising #menofhonor
I thought since the battle of Iwo Jima happened 74 years ago today I would post some of my WWII marine corps uniforms!  A big thank you to @7th_armored for the 6th uniform! These came in not too long ago and I think I might have a new obsession lol.

My grandpa. My namesake. One of my inspirations to become a pilot, even though I never met him. A lot of times when I fly, I think about those that came before and how lucky I am to live in a time, not much more than 100 years since the first man took to the sky. #family #grandpa #thegreatestgeneration #wwii #b24 #snoopers #pilot
Checkout this '83 F250 I'm working on. It belongs to a family friend and is exclusively used as a property work truck. Honestly I'm not much of a Ford fan but for some reason I like this era and older. Maybe because they remind me of my grandfather. There was always a Ford or two just like this one around his place when I was a kid. He also had a particular liking for IH Scouts and crappy old camp trailers. He owned more than a few of both in his time.  #thegreatestgeneration #f250 #ford #1983 #ujoint #plowtruck #snowplow #bigenginenopower #trucks #4wd #worktruck #25f #wintertime

Ava Gardner and Mickey Rooney. I almost didn't want to post this because I absolutely abhor Mickey Rooney- if half the things that have come to light about him are true, anyone would. Honestly just sharing this for Ava, because she's my absolute favorite. She was a hell of a woman, and she looks gorgeous as always in this photo. That and also, looks wise, this is an accurate representation of me in a relationship. At 5'7, I'm Greatest Generation sized.

STAFF SERGEANT EDWARD A. CARTER JR. UNITED STATES ARMY For service as set forth in the following CITATION:[5]  For extraordinary heroism in action on 23 March 1945, near Speyer, Germany. When the tank on which he was riding received heavy bazooka and small arms fire, Sergeant Carter voluntarily attempted to lead a three-man group across an open field. Within a short time, two of his men were killed and the third seriously wounded. Continuing on alone, he was wounded five times and finally forced to take cover. As eight enemy riflemen attempted to capture him, Sergeant Carter killed six of them and captured the remaining two. He then crossed the field using as a shield his two prisoners from which he obtained valuable information concerning the disposition of enemy troops. Staff Sergeant Carter's extraordinary heroism was an inspiration to the officers and men of the Seventh Army Infantry Company Number 1 (Provisional) and exemplify the highest traditions of the Armed Forces.[4]  #ww2 #ww2history #militaryhistory #medalofhonor #valor #blackhistorymonth #thegreatestgeneration #neverforget #patriot #veteran #veteransareheroes #moh #europeantheater #valor #combatinfantrybadge #combatveterans #nco #edwardacarteramericanhero #selflessservice #medalofhonornetflixseries

April 27, 1926-February 7, 2019 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I didn’t realize how much around me reminds me of her. My kitchen table and chairs are the ones she and Norman bought when they first got married. Jewelry she gave me. The fur in my closet. Pictures on my wall. Milk glass in my kitchen. And the giant, slightly terrifying ceramic piggy bank we made when I was little. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So many memories. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Like fishing, crafting, tons of camping trips, watching The Price is Right, sleepovers at her house, baking pies, looking at all of her jewelry, going through all of her old photos that I was obsessed with, and playing games. Didn’t matter what game—dominoes, Sorry, Aggravation, cards—grandma was the biggest trash talker in the world. The only times I’ve ever gambled was while playing games with her camping group. To this day, they’re also the only people who ever offered me alcohol. But grandma told them I couldn’t have wine coolers because I was a Mormon. And 9 years old 😂😂😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I loved to listen to her talk about her young adult, pre-married life. She’d tell me about all the boys she dated and kissed, how she traveled all over New York for her job as a switchboard operator & troubleshooter for New York Bell, and how much fun she had. Just a few days before she died, she said she missed being married and “getting a pat on the butt and a kiss every once in a while.” She was the coolest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I miss her. I’m grateful we were able to have these last 8 months with her again. Grateful she got to spend her last little while on earth surrounded by loving family. So happy she got to meet both of my kids. Mostly, I’m lucky that I knew her and look forward to seeing her and her big smile again one day. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Love you first, grandma 💗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #restinpeace #untilwemeetagain #savefamilyphotos #grandma
April 27, 1926-February 7, 2019 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I didn’t realize how much around me reminds me of her. My kitchen table and chairs are the ones she and Norman bought when they first got married. Jewelry she gave me. The fur in my closet. Pictures on my wall. Milk glass in my kitchen. And the giant, slightly terrifying ceramic piggy bank we made when I was little. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So many memories. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Like fishing, crafting, tons of camping trips, watching The Price is Right, sleepovers at her house, baking pies, looking at all of her jewelry, going through all of her old photos that I was obsessed with, and playing games. Didn’t matter what game—dominoes, Sorry, Aggravation, cards—grandma was the biggest trash talker in the world. The only times I’ve ever gambled was while playing games with her camping group. To this day, they’re also the only people who ever offered me alcohol. But grandma told them I couldn’t have wine coolers because I was a Mormon. And 9 years old 😂😂😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I loved to listen to her talk about her young adult, pre-married life. She’d tell me about all the boys she dated and kissed, how she traveled all over New York for her job as a switchboard operator & troubleshooter for New York Bell, and how much fun she had. Just a few days before she died, she said she missed being married and “getting a pat on the butt and a kiss every once in a while.” She was the coolest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I miss her.

“'Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts And I know how it's all gonna end. There's no triumph waiting. There's no sunset to ride off in.” This might be one of the best songs ever written, fight me if you disagree. #thewonderyears #thegreatestgeneration #ijustwanttoselloutmyfuneral
