    Here's the amazing story of how a Boeing Pan American Airways Clipper (B-314 flying boat), caught in the South Pacific after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, made an unplanned, dangerous, and record-breaking flight home -- the long way (31,500 miles).  An astounding feat in 1941-42, mostly without maps and always without landing gear.

     

     

    Watch this great VIDEO, which is the teaser for a longer documentary.  There's also a book about this voyage: "The Long Way Home" by Ed Dover.  You can find it with a Web search -- it's still available.

    Retired U.S. Marine Corps Gen. John F. Kelly was confirmed as Secretary of Homeland Security on Jan. 20, 2017.

    Many of us remember the fatal truck bombing that took place in Iraq on April 22, 2008.  Most do not know that Gen. Kelly eloquently eulogized two young Marines who died heroically in that attack -- just four days after his own son, a Marine Corps 2nd Lt., died in combat in Afghanistan.  At the link below, you'll see an excerpt from Gen. Kelly’s inspiring speech, delivered to the Semper Fi Society of St. Louis Nov. 13, 2010 and published in American Legion Magazine Oct. 28, 2011.  We've also included an outstanding story aired by CBS News on Feb. 20, 2009. 

     

     

    Here's the American Legion Magazine ARTCLE.  The full text of Gen. Kelly's speech is currently unavailable, even though the article contains a link.

    And don't forget to watch the engaging CBS NEWS STORY.  You'll see a commercial first.
