After recruiters assistance I had to report into SOI west for Marine Combat Training. I graduated MCT twenty one days later. Then I reported into Combat Engineer Instruction course. Spent four months just waiting to pick up the class. April first I got promoted to Private First Class.
Navel fleet of about three carriers, twenty-five support ships, and 360 aircrafts were deployed on June 4th, 1942 to Midway Island against the Imperial Navy’s fleet consisting of four carriers, two battleships, fifteen support ships, 248 aircrafts, and sixteen floatplanes. With the battle in place, the Imperial Navy was baffled at the losts because they did not expect the U.S. to be so prepared or ready for the trap. At the end of the battle, both sides had causalities, 307 men for the United States and 3,057 men for Japan. Reports show the planning of Midway was a huge success, which helped the U.S. gain Midway Island and many other islands after that. After the events of Midway, the U.S. opened a gate with many successes by conquering islands invaded by Japan in an effort to stop attacks on U.S. forces.
A month later he sailed from San Francisco to join the Marine Detachment of the American Legation at Peiping, China. There, in addition to other duties, he commanded the famed "Horse Marines." Without coming back to the United States, he began a tour of sea duty in USS AUGUSTA of the Asiatic Fleet. In June 1936 he returned to the United States to become an instructor in the Basic School at Philadelphia. He left there in May 1939 to serve another year as commander of the AUGUSTA's Marine Detachment, and from that cruiser, joined the 4th Marine Regiment at Shanghai, China, in May 1940.
I will discuss three topics areas that will demonstrate the context for the artifact: JFK as a rhetor, the occasions on which the rhetoric was presented and the audience to whom the rhetoric was addressed. Background John Fitzgerald Kennedy graduated from Harvard University in 1940 and shortly thereafter joined the Navy. While serving in WWII, his PT boat was rammed and sunk by a Japanese destroyer; Kennedy suffered critical injuries, but still managed to get him and other survivors to safety. Kennedy became a Democratic Congressman in the Boston area and then progressed to the 1953 Senate (JFK). John F. Kennedy was elected the youngest and first Roman Catholic President of the United States on November 8, 1960.
Nearly thirty years later, former CEO of Manico, Inc., Jack Kahl “officially” changed the name to Duck Tape® by commercializing it and giving it personality. Today, duct tape is offered in over twenty different colors and patterns. Besides its World War II association, duct tape was used to help one of the most “successful failures” in history. When Apollo 13 was crippled by an explosion only two days after the launch, astronauts were left with a limited oxygen supply that was slowly running out. Of course, they fixed it with duct tape.
Band Of Brothers by Stephen Ambrose In 1942, the United States entered World War 2 after the Japanese fleet attacked the U.S. Naval base at Pearl on the side of the Allied forces, Canada, Britain, and Russia. This turned the tide of the war in favor of the allies and over the next few years Hitler's forces were pushed back across Europe which left Hitler with only Germany and France under his control. By the spring of 1943, the Allied High Command was able to go on the offensive and as such began planning a major offense for the spring of 1944. This operation was given the Code name "Operation Overlord" and was designed to provide the Allied forces with a foothold in German occupied France from which they could liberate the rest of France and then advance into Germany.
Pearl Harbor When the first Japanese aircraft flew over Oahu, the Early Warning Systems or Air Defenses did not prepare for what happened next. The early attack from the Japanese, at Pearl Harbor was a turning point in the history of Air Defense. It helped by using Anti-Aircraft guns and Early Warning Radar Systems in today’s military. Using the proper Air Defense helped limit damage by showing what could have happened if the right resources’ helped to prevent further loses of personnel and equipment. On December 7, 1941, Japanese Imperial Airmen woke up aboard the carriers in the middle of the Pacific.
During their partnership they founded the Pacific Aero Products Company in Seattle and completed the definitive assembly of the B & W seaplane in his boathouse in Lake Union. They had hoped to sell the seaplane to the Navy, but they were precluded. But, William was extremely adamant in being the sole owner of the Pacific Aero Products Company, so he incorporated the company for $100,000 and bought out 998 of the 1,000 stocks and moved the operation back to his shipyard. Then in May of 1917, William converted the company name to the Boeing Airplane Company. Tsu Wong graduated with a degree in aeronautical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, so bearing in mind that Westervelt and Tsu Wong were both Massachusetts Institute of Technology alumni’s, Westervelt referred Wong to Boeing.
Without the help of Sir Keith Park and the Royal Air Force, the casualty number would have been a lot larger. Sir Keith Park commandeered the 11th Group of Fighter Command. Keith also created a brilliant plan for the defense of London and the South East of England. Keith was in command of the squadron that fought for the Battle of Britain. The failure of the Luftwaffe to defeat the Royal Air Force in 1940 at the Battle of Britain is seen as Germany’s first major mistake in the Second World War against the western front.
The armor used pales in comparison to today’s standards as well. The frames were mainly biplane based, and as mentioned before, controlling the airspace became more and more of a focus factor because of how important aerial warfare was becoming. By World War II, the fighters evolved into mostly all-metal mono planes that had cannons or machine guns mounted on them. By the end of World War II, there were already turbojets replacing the dated piston engines. Not only engines, but the armaments carried by these planes were already being redefined.
