Since its inception during the mid 2000s, YouTube has been a go- to site for just about any subject out there. The subjects range from the mundane and weird to popular to obscure. One popular topic is Military History and YouTube has many professional and self-made videos produced for the service. There are five different YouTube channels that I subscribe to and periodically enjoy. Among the subjects discussed are the world wars, the Cold War, espionage, and the current state of affairs. Most of the videos run anywhere from a few minutes to about 20 minutes in length, making them very user-friendly. Each program is well researched and is narrated off- screen by the content creator.
My dad is retired Navy. He was in for 20 years, until I was in high school. Throughout my life, my dad taught me a lot of life lessons and skills that I believe had a lot to do with his military experience. He taught my sisters and I some amazing work ethic, the importance of dedication and passion in what you do, and how to always follow through with your commitments. These lessons followed me, and to this day, even at 24 years old, I still live by one specific motto my dad taught me. He once said to me, "no matter what job you're doing, if I walk into your place of work, you better be the best and most hardworking person there."
This is my son Estevan, one of my many favorites pictures that really shows the intigrity of his heart. Every since I can remember my son has always looked up to service workers in uniform with reverance esp. the Marines, he hoped one day he would be a special part of this honorable calling to serve his country and possibly make his absent father proud, later he learned his deceased grandfather he never met was also a Marine and later went to become District Judge in Boyal Cty Ky.
On 13th February 1945 Great Britain committed one of the worst war crimes ever perpetrated, namely the senseless and unnecessary bombing of Dresden that killed more than 130,000 people and destroyed one of the most beautiful and historic cities of Europe.
