World War Eleven

World War Eleven


YOUNG PEOPLE CANNOT LEARN FROM HISTORY ANY MORE BECAUSE HISTORY IS NO LONGER TAUGHT AS A REQUIRED SUBJECT IN PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOLS.




Theodore " Dutch " J. Van Kirk was the navigator on the "Enola Gay" when it dropped the bomb at Hiroshima, Japan, and is the last surviving member of the crew. This really happened.


Dutch was asked to speak at a grammar school recently. The young teacher introduced him by saying the speaker was a veteran of World War Eleven (as in WWII). Dutch stood up and walked out of the school without saying a word. End of story.


GOD HELP US!

I'll bet the teacher thinks he was "rude".

Dutch learned to figure the odds long ago, he knew this was a bad mission !!!

I don't believe this actually happened, but I have no trouble believing it COULD have happened.

Fake News. He died in 2014.

NO school would let an "Atomic Bomber" on the property, anywhere today, except West Point or Annapolis.

He would have been assaulted and killed by ANTIFA types, if he had actually showed up at a school.

I was going to type "citation needed", as this just screams of the feel-good/self-pity chain mail that conservatives love to present. Thanks for calling out the bullshit.

That said, the post is rooted in some truth. Get rid of public education and we'd see a massive shift in the enlightenment of our current and future generations.

He would've been welcomed at the school where I taught. Watch that broad brush...

Being a gentleman he did the right thing in walking out without calling the teacher a ignorant son of a bitch,,, those would nave been the 1st words out of my mouth.
Everybody knows there were 12 WW's,,,, and the Marines won all of them,,, and one to spare.
