President Donald Trump says Our youth will be taught to love America with all of their heart

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – United States President Donald Trump is fighting each day against the left’s attempts to indoctrinate our children with a radical, misleading, and unpatriotic story of America.
 
Divisive and distorted histories of our country—everything from Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States to The New York Times’ 1619 Project—seek to erase America’s tradition of liberty, free expression, and self-determination from memory.

President Donald Trump will protect American History

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – For more than a month, there has been a sustained assault on American civilians, law enforcement officers, public and private property, and national treasures such as the Lincoln Memorial.

These attacks aren’t the actions of peaceful protesters—they are the violent criminal acts of rioters, arsonists, anarchists, and left-wing extremists.

Lamar Alexander says to Tear Down Andrew Jackson’s Statue would be a Terrible Misunderstanding of Our Nation’s History

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. –  U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) yesterday afternoon on the Senate floor said, “We should not try to erase our history. We should not try to pretend it doesn’t exist,” in response to an effort by a crowd to tear down President Andrew Jackson’s statue in Lafayette Square in front of the White House:

“Presidential historians almost without exception put Andrew Jackson in the top ten of America’s presidents. They see him as a sophisticated, often subtle political actor who without his devotion to the union, against his own local political interests, the union might well have fallen apart in 1832 or 1833,” said Senator Alexander.

Austin Peay State University professors Antonio Thompson, Christos Frentzos complete work on two-volume study of American military history

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – The discussion of American military history can be approached in a seemingly endless variety of ways. With so many tactical, political and societal viewpoints to be considered, even the most educated scholars or enthusiastic students can become lost in a sea of information.

But what if the focus was narrowed to the people, places and events at the core of these historic conflicts?

90 Year Old Japanese-American Veteran to be honored Friday

 
George Nishimura

George Nishimura

Clarksville, TN – George Nishimura was born of Japanese parents on February 25th, 1923, in Hawaii. His father came to work in the sugar cane fields, as so many Japanese men had done before him.   When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, George was eighteen years old.  He would watch the second wave of attack and wonder, “What has happened?”

Thousands of Japanese-Americans volunteered to join the United States Army after the attack. President Roosevelt approved the formation of a separate unit comprised of these Japanese-Americans, also known as “Nisei,” or second generation, to be known as the 442nd Regimental Combat Team. «Read the rest of this article»

Vietnam veteran still serving on active duty at Fort Campbell with the 101st Airborne Division, 1st Brigade Combat Team

BastogneFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell, KY – At just over 6 feet tall, a soldier from a long line of war veterans walks with a unique swagger. He has the voice of a natural leader that only comes with time. His stern facial expression might throw some people off from his truly motivating and positive attitude, but it’s his teddy bear attraction that might draw a person in.

He’s been honorably in and out of the military for the past four decades, has served in three wars and is currently assigned to the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault).

Staff Sgt. Robert W. Middleswarth, 61, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), is scheduled to retire in December. Middleswarth, a Watsontown, PA, native, is one of only two active duty Vietnam veterans still serving on Fort Campbell, KY. (Photo by Spc. Kadina Baldwin)
