From: A Business Insider Article by Jeremy Bender
From the summer of 1944 until the end of the World War II in Europe, the US fielded a unique 'Ghost Army' throughout France and the Rhine Valley in order to deceive the Third Reich into over estimating the strength of the Allied forces.
The Ghost Army, which consisted of 1,100 handpicked men and a number of phony inflatable tanks and weapons, was part of the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops.
The unit's sole responsibility was to create illusions and spread disinformation about the strength and location of Allied forces. Read More
No. 3 Winter Soup
Take a large shin of beef, saw it through in several places, and score or notch the meat quite to the bone. Put the beef into a soup-pot, adding one quart of water to each pound of beef. Add a red pepper-pod and let the whole boil six hours; then strain it and place it away to cool. This soup, thus made, will keep good for several days. Whenever you wish to use it, remove all the fat and put the soup into the pot again, adding two large turnips, one carrot, two onions, and three potatoes finely cut into fanciful shapes. Let the whole boil for two hours, then add salt, and if you like, a little mace, a tea-spoonful of sugar, and a sprig of celeery, which gives it a lively flavour. The soup is then ready for the table. It is sometimes called Shin Soup. *

Cairo (AFP) - An archaeologist said Sunday that Maia, Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun's wet nurse, may have actually been his sister Meritaten, reviving speculation about the identity of the mother of the boy king.
DNA tests have proved that the pharaoh Akhenaten was the father of Tutankhamun, but the identity of his mother has long been a mystery.
On Sunday, Egyptian officials and French archaeologist Alain Zivie unveiled Maia's tomb to journalists ahead of its opening to the public next month. Read More

For the AP by Aron Heller
JERUSALEM (AP) — The Nazi soldiers made their orders very clear: Jewish American prisoners of war were to be separated from their fellow brothers in arms and sent to an uncertain fate.
But Master Sgt. Roddie Edmonds would have none of that. As the highest-ranking noncommissioned officer held in the German POW camp, he ordered more than 1,000 Americans captives to step forward with him and brazenly pronounced: "We are all Jews here." Read More Here

[Can You]Guess Who This Is?: A Cautionary Tale
Some might argue that the photo's subject only intended for the photo to catch a passing moment meant only for specific persons. That position is debatable. Photographs in and of themelves, are very human attempts to leave a part of ourselves behind. Good, bad, ugly--it does not matter. We want to be remembered.
She was found in in a large box of photos. A slim possibility exists that I might be able to find her identity. I'll keep you updated as I go through them. Best, Pat © Pat Earnest Delaware 2015

Long ago when Passed Time first began on 4 June 2015, we identified one of Passed Time's founders as a military veteran.
This veteran belongs to an under-appreciated and often completely ignored group known as "maintainers." These personnel keep the military up and running. Maintainers are the reason planes fly, hummers and tanks run, and helicopters hover. Yet, they are not wrong in thinking few notice their efforts. Those in vaunted occupations, such as pilots, are often credited with repairing, maintaining and flying aircraft (often all at the same time).
In all seriousness, letters recently surfaced that were written by Dover, Delaware schoolchildren to a maintainer in 2004 (click the "read more" button to see all of the letters). These letters will disabuse everyone of the notion that no one cares about maintainers (whether you are a pointy head, a knuckle-dragger, a booger hooker, a bubble chaser, a jet, or a spark chaser) and their contributions.

That spring morning in 1927 could not have been more beautiful, one of the students would later recall. The Bath Consolidated School just outside East Lansing, Mich., was holding final exams, but before the morning bell rang on May 18, 1927, children ran and played outside. Peals of laughter could be heard.
ATLANTA (AP) - More than 70 years ago, a U.S. Army plane dubbed "Hot as Hell" was headed for India on a supply mission. It never arrived, and no one went looking for the doomed aircraft or the eight men on board because military officials had no way of pinpointing where it went down.
BOSTON (AP) - The sword that belonged to the commanding officer of the first all-black regiment raised in the North during the U.S. Civil War has been recovered after being lost to history for more than 150 years. The British-made sword carried into battle by Col.
An upcoming book seeks to find the links between the fable of Frankenstein and a brutal Philadelphia mass murder that occurred nearly 50 years after the release of the famous novel.
