Also side history note: it's the anniversary of Operation Market Garden! Where on this day in 1944 the largest airborne operation ever conducted would take place in occupied Holland. The objective of the operation is to capture and hold an opening through Holland and into Germany where as they would hope to end the war before christmas. Sadly this would not succeed, due to many hazard they would face as well as rushed planning. Operation market garden would go on to be remembered as "A Bridge too Far." (Tho keep in mind it's not confirmed if that was officially said by any or even Monty during or after said operation). Rememebe those who fought to keep those bridges open, including those of the American 101st, and 82nd Airborne, as well as the British 1st Airborne Division. May those who fought and perished there stay remembered.

The word "Admiral" stems from the word "admire" which are words that express respect and favor for someone. It's very interesting to know that the word "Admiral" originated from the Negro from the phrase "Amir-Al-Bahr" which means "Prince of the Seas". It was used out of great respect for Negro sea rovers that searched the coasts and wetlands of Europe for slaves up into the 1800's. As time progressed with the Negro sea commanders, they were often called "Niggers". If you were a 90's NBA basketball fan, you would know of former San Antonio Spurs star, David Robinson. Robinson ties into this post, because he was known around the league and the public as "The Admiral". Not only was David Robinson well respected as a player, but he served as a lieutenant and engineer officer for the Navy Submarine Base Kings Bay, which consists of hundreds of acres of wetlands and water. [hint sea rover] Robinson's military service was also greatly admired. #american HISTORY #real FACTS #admiral#david ROBINSON
🐕 🇺🇸 Military Dogs give their entire lives to keep America & Americans safe.
These highly trained dogs SERVE right alongside our service men and women and after a lifetime of service, many never make it back to spend their senior years knowing the safety and love they so deserve after giving so much - mostly for a lack of money and simple
Mission K9 Rescue is a non-profit organization and their sole purpose is to rescue retiring and retired military working dogs, contract working dogs, and other dogs who have given so much to their country.
