Happy 243rd Birthday United States Marine Corps

Happy 243rd Birthday United States Marine Corps 10 Nov. 1775 - 2018

For God and country, Semper Fi. I was asked this evening to share a bit of the distinguished history of the USMC and the 100th anniversary of World War I – especially the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Belleau Wood.

I was the keynote speaker at the 243rd Anniversary of the United States Marine Corps 1775-2018. Saturday, 10 November 2018, 1730-2130 (5:30-9:30 pm.) The 4th District of the Department of Maryland, Marine Corps League annual birthday ball at the American Legion Carroll Post 31, 2 Sycamore St., Westminster, MD  21157.

Much of my research into the history of the Marines dates back to the classes I took in the summer of 1972 in Quantico Virginia. I still prize my tattered, torn, and worn 1970 "Concise History of the Unites States Marine Corps 1775-1969," by Captain William D. Parker, USMCR.

For those of you who have served or are currently serving: thank you. Your dedication and service to our country is deeply appreciated. Indeed, that appreciation is the purpose of having a Marine Corps Ball – in addition to the not so minor detail of following Gen. John A. Lejeune's Nov. 1, 1921, Marine Corps Order No. 47 to have a yearly birthday celebration.

Any discussion of the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI must include the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Belleau Wood; which raged for nearly a month, June 1 through June 26, 1918. Many historians consider the battle of Belleau Wood to be the beginning of the end of WWI. The introduction of the Marines in the war effort had a direct impact on the successful conclusion of the hostilities.

The Marine nickname of 'devil dog' can be traced back to the Battle of Belleau Wood. The German officers referred to the Marines as the "Teufel Hunden," which is German for "Devil Dogs," in their field reports. Exhausted, outnumbered, and outgunned, the Marines refused to yield.

On November 11, 2018, we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. The United States entered the war on April 6, 1917. 

Approximately 62,000 Marylanders served, 2,000 died, including 31 from Carroll County. According to my friend and fellow historian, Judge Joe Getty, at the time of the war, Carroll County had a "population of only 34,000; 1,200 men and women served with the armed forces. Of those, 14 were killed in action or died of their wounds, twenty died of disease or accidents and two committed suicide."

These young men gave their lives and their future in two military operations that changed the world.

Happy Birthday Marines. For Corps and Country, Semper Fidelis.

March 26, 2014: "Mother's Restaurant" in New Orleans, Louisiana. It's a Marine Corps thing.


"Mother's Restaurant" in New Orleans, Louisiana. It's a Marine Corps thing. Semper Fi. We loved it. Convenient to downtown. We walked everywhere. The food was great. The service was good and the place had real character. I felt like we part of history. 26Mar2014





  

 

Mother’s restaurant New Orleans Louisiana
401 Poydras St
New Orleans, Louisiana
(504) 523-9656
Authentic N'Awlins home-style cooking since 1938. The Amato family welcomes you for a taste of tradition.


 

  

Mother’s Restaurant opened its doors in 1938 on Poydras Street’s “Restaurant Row”, situated between a thriving waterfront and the courthouse. Owners Simon and Mary (Mother) Landry and his large family cooked up po’ boys for lines of longshoremen and laborers, newspapermen and attorneys.


During and after World War II, Mother’s became a local hang-out for “the few and the proud” – the U.S. Marine Corps. The Marine spirit was in the family – five of the seven Landry children (five sons and two daughters) joined the Marine Corps. Francis Landry was the first woman in Louisiana to be accepted into the Corps. This special association with the Marines earned Mother’s the title of “TUN Tavern New Orleans” in the late ’60s. The original TUN tavern was the official birthplace of the Marines during the Revolutionary War.


Mother’s is not just a part of this great American tradition, but also stands as a uniquely New Orleans institution. The likes of other family-owned local businesses such as D.H. Holmes Department Stores, K&B Drug Stores, MacKenzie’s Bakery, and Werlein’s Music have all departed from the landscape, while Mother’s Restaurant has not only remained almost exactly the same, but has flourished.


In 1986, the Jerry and John Amato bought Mother’s from the Landry’s sons Jacques and Eddie. With the changing of the guard, many things were added but nothing, fortunately, lost. Jerry Amato, chef and proprietor, doubled the already dizzying size of the menu. Now traditional New Orleans dishes like jambalaya and Shrimp Creole line-up next to the po’ boys that Mother’s made famous, such as the Ferdi Special and the debris po-boy (for a history of these and other sandwiches on the Fun Facts page). Breakfast, lunch and dinner items are cooked with fresh ingredients and bold, delicious flavor.


You will still see longshoremen in boots and you’ll find plenty of locals rubbing elbows in line with visitors, veterans, politicians and movie stars. Mother’s remains true to its working class origins. Nobody gets treated better (or worse) than anybody else. As Jerry Amato says, “Everybody gets fed. Everybody comes back.”


So go ahead, join ranks with the not-so-few, but intensely proud – the Mother’s crowd.

USMC Barbie and Ken dolls



USMC Barbie and Ken dolls - - I got the best Christmas present ever from my brother-in-law and sister-in-law, both retired US Army Colonels, and Liz, an awesome niece; who gave me a vintage 1991 Barbie and Ken doll, still in the original box, complete with a Good Conduct Medal, and Desert Storm participation medal.

Pastor Martha Clementson shared a children's sermon at services at Grace Lutheran Church this morning in Westminster, June 12, 2016. 
 
The gospel message this morning, 2 Samuel 11: 26- 12: 10, 13-15; and Luke 7: 36 – 8:3 appears to have been torn from a tawdry realty talk show. Pastor Martha did a great job of bringing it to life, making sense of it and making it relevant today. She taught us lessons that we can use in the coming weeks and months. And Galatians 2: 15-21, the third gospel lesson at services this morning; glued it all together.

Visitation for the family Marine Staff Sgt. James Malachowski held at Eline Funeral Home in Hampstead Sunday

By Kevin Dayhoff

American flags lined the street at the Eline Funeral Home on South Main Street in Hampstead all afternoon and well into the evening as hundreds of family and friends paid their respects to the family of Staff Sgt. James M. Malachowski, 25 of Westminster.

Malachowski was a platoon sergeant with the 3rd Platoon, Fox Company, 2nd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, which is based in Camp Lejeune, N.C.

He had joined the Marine Corps in June 2003, after graduating from North Carroll High School.

He was killed in action March 20, 2011, by an improvised exploding device, IED, while conducting combat operations in Marjah, Helmand province, Afghanistan.  Malachowski was on his fourth deployment overseas.  He had previously been deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom three times with the 2nd Battalion, 2nd Marines.  He served in Iraq from March 2004 to October 2004, from July 2005 to February 2006 and from January 2007 to July 2007.

At times, the line of those stopping to pay their respects to the fallen Marine extended out of the funeral home and halfway around the building.  Some were friends; some did not know Malachowski but just wanted to show their support for the family and the military.  At the end of the line, members of the Marine Corps League stood watch.

In the early evening Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley came to pay his respects to the family.  He came unannounced and essentially without any support staff and spent about 15-minutes quietly speaking with the family.

“As often as possible - unless I’m out of state, I come to pay my respects” explained O’Malley. 

O’Malley has a reputation for publicly – and privately - supporting the military according to a conversation overheard among several members of the military in the visitation line, who asked to not be identified.

As quietly and respectfully as he entered the funeral parlor, O’Malley left after spending a couple of minutes with other family members.

Outside, members of the Patriot Guard stood silently on the front sidewalk with a large American flags.  All day they rotated in and out of duty at the funeral home. 

“We’ve been here since the hero was brought in from Dover (Air Force Base,) Delaware around 10:30 this morning,” Sandy Hohne, a ride captain with the Patriot Guard.

“Then we re-grouped (for the visitation) at 1:30.  We’ve had over 70 members of the Guard sign-in for this mission,” explained Hohne.

“We’re here at the invitation of the (Malachowski) family…  All of whom are Patriot Guard riders,” explained Clayton Gebhart, from Townsend, Delaware - another Patriot Guard ride captain.

Hohne went on the say that she joined the Patriot Guard with the Malachowski family.  “This is my 175th mission with the Patriot Guard,” said Hohne.  A mission “is a funeral, a welcome home, or a send-off for a member of the military or a firefighter – a first responder...  Our mission is to honor the service and protect the family and friends.”

“We have about 1,200 members in the Maryland Chapter of the National Patriot Guard.  I joined after the Snyder funeral,” said Hohne, referring to the funeral of Carroll County native Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder, whose March 10, 2006 funeral was picketed by “uninvited guests.”  The Patriot Guard does not say the name of the Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church.  Instead the Westboro demonstrators are simply referred to as “uninvited guests.”

Kevin Goodman, a Patriot Guard member who stood at the end of the long line of the sentries with flags explained that he had “been here for a number of hours,” as he brushed off questions about the cold.  “I haven’t kept track of the time.  It’s not important.  What’s important is that I be here.”

The sun shined brightly Sunday afternoon, but it was cold as some members of the Patriot Guard stood around the back of a vehicle full of food and hot coffee. 

“We’re here no matter the weather,” said Hohne as she talked about the “tremendous support” of the community.  We’ve almost never had support like this explained Hohne, except – maybe in Frederick County remarked Hohne as she pointed to the car overflowing with food and drinks from the local Hampstead community. 

An unidentified Patriot Guard quickly added, “Well, we are, after-all, in Carroll County,” as they walked by quickly with a piece of chicken from Dean’s Restaurant.

The Saturday before visitation the Hampstead Business Association was circulating a memo for members of the community “to show support for (the Malachowski) family and fellow servicemen during this difficult time.  We would like to line Route 30 with American Flags from (St. Bartholomew Church) south…  The manager of the Wal-Mart in Hampstead donated 4 packs of 12x18 flags…”

The folks paying their respects and honoring the service and sacrifice of Malachowski came from all over the nation – and indeed, from all over the world.

“God Bless the sacrifice, the service of this great young man,” said one motorist as they passed by the line of flags and touted the horn.

Meanwhile, earlier in the afternoon, Loretta Murphy said as she watched from across the street from the funeral home, “These people are showing support for something… as opposed to being negative.”

“If it’s possible to give any comfort to the family, these men and women can – hopefully provide the family some comfort and give another side to freedom of speech.  I guess there are two sides to freedom of speech,” said her husband John Murphy.

The Murphys were there with their grandson, Samuel Woo.  Murphy explained “it can be confusing to a child… the First Amendment and all.  That’s one of the reasons we brought our grandson, that, and to pay our respects...” 

Motioning over the Patriot Guard, Murphy went on to say, “Here’s a group of men and women who showed-up to honor and respect the family.  That part is not confusing…”

As the sun went down and the evening wore on, the motorcycle of Robert (Phoenix) Wiseman, a captain in the fire investigation division of the Howard County Fire and Rescue service, stood a silent vigil in the parking lot across the street from the funeral home.  A few feet away, Wiseman discussed plans for the funeral on Monday with other members of the Patriot Guard.

Funeral services for the fallen Marine will be held on Monday at 1 p.m. at St. Bartholomew's Catholic Church, 2930 Hanover Pike, Manchester.

John P. Murtha - A Complex and Complicated Life

John P. Murtha - A Complex and Complicated Life

The Tentacle www.thetentacle.com: John P. Murtha - A Complex and Complicated Life by Kevin Dayhoff http://tinyurl.com/ygn5cp7

http://www.thetentacle.com/ShowArticle.cfm?mydocid=3598

John P. Murtha, the Democrat congressman from Pennsylvania, died at Virginia Hospital Center Monday at the age of 77 after complications from gall-bladder surgery.

For some, Congressman Murtha burst upon the scene to become a household name and patriot, who spoke ‘truth to power’ against the Iraq war during the administration of President George W. Bush.

For others, Congressman Murtha was a complicated and complex, hypocritical, knee-jerk opportunistic lefty whose ‘principled’ objections to the war on terrorism quickly became irresponsible in tenor and tone.

Exacerbating the criticisms of Congressman Murtha was the perception that he mysteriously lost his voice of opposition to the war efforts once President Barack Obama was sworn into office.

Funny how that happens.

Even The Washington Post, not overwhelmingly known for going out of its way to say anything particularly unkind about Democrats, identified him in its lede as the “master of pork-barrel politics … considered one of the most influential on Capitol Hill,” and “a Vietnam veteran who staunchly supported military spending…”

Mr. Murtha held the seat in Congress from the 12th Congressional District in southwestern Pennsylvania for 19 terms. He first won the seat in a special election in 1974 after Republican Congressman John P. Saylor died in office.

Even a cursory review of his life and accomplishments reveals that Mr. Murtha was a gentleman for whom there is much to be admired and respected.

Certainly not to be overlooked is the fact that Mr. Murtha continued his service to our country by being the first Vietnam veteran to take a seat in Congress.

The road to Vietnam and Congress actually began as far back as the early 1950s.
