Late World War II Veteran is 1st Soldier Honored for Saving Jews (Link) to Article by Aron Heller

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

King Tut's Tomb May Conceal Egypt's Lost Queen Nefertiti (Link to Reuter's Video)

King Tut's tomb may conceal Egypt's lost Queen

 Nefertiti by Reuters Videos 0:56 mins

      Experts say they are optimistic that King Tutankhamun's tomb has

passages to a hidden chamber, which may be the last resting

 place of the lost Queen Nefertiti. Jillian Kitchener reports. Link to

Reuter's Video Here

Here is another update by Newsweek Author Paula Mejia

King Tutankhamun’s final resting place has been known for almost 100 years, since Howard Carter’s landmark discovery of the tomb in the Valley of Kings in Luxor, Egypt in 1922.

Now, researchers say they’re convinced the Egyptian pharaoh’s tomb bears a hidden chamber that has yet to be explored. The size of the chamber is unknown, but researchers are confident the radar imaging scans indicate that it does, in fact, exist.

So what’s in the hidden chamber? Some researchers are confident that the long-lost remains of Queen Nefertiti, thought to be Tutankhamun’s stepmother (she died in 14th century B.C.), may be among the treasures lying behind a partition wall in the tomb. Read More Newsweek by Paula Mejia

   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.

Letters From Home: Military Maintainers ARE Appreciated

 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.

Military Identifies Remains of 7 Pearl Harbor "Unknowns" AP article by Audrey McAVOY

HONOLULU — The remains of seven crew members missing since the USS Oklahoma capsized in the 1941 bombing of Pearl Harbor have been identified, the military said Monday.

 The names of the servicemen identified using dental records will be released after their families have been notified.

In June, the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency began digging up the remains of nearly 400 USS Oklahoma sailors and Marines from a veterans cemetery in Honolulu where they were buried as "unknowns."

Within five years, officials expect to identify about 80 percent of the Oklahoma crew members still considered missing.   Read More

Virginia Tech was not the worst school massacre in U.S. history. This was.

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.
