About Operation Helmet

 

Operation Helmet is a nonpartisan, charitable grassroots effort that provides helmet upgrade kits free of charge to U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. These helmet upgrade kits consist of shock-absorbing pads and a new strap system. Operation Helmet depends on tax-deductible donations. For $ 75-$ 100, depending on the manufacturer, added safety and comfort can be provided for a trooper. But donations of any amount are welcome. The donation can be designated for a specific branch of the military, a particular unit or an individual trooper. 100% of donations go toward helmet kits. There are no administrative costs deducted and the Operation’s books are available for inspection by anyone who wants to see them. To date, Operation Helmet has sent upgrade kits to over 9,700 troops. For more information, see http://www.Operation-Helmet.org.

By the end of this year, November at the latest Israel and or the U.S. will strike Iran militarily and from there we will probably be seeing the beginning of world war III! This “conflagration” will most certainly go “nuclear”! Essentially “all hell” is about to break loose! With these actions we will see the start of global economic collapse, civil disruption in “many” western nations ‘including” the U.S. and this will of course bring about a state of “martial law”! President Obama will not be “totally” to blame as his hand is only that of a puppet “so to speak”. The old money families “behind the scenes” actually “control” the U.S. government! Any president that is in office is basically constrained by the rule of these “money men” in most that they do, get out of line and they are taken out…..”assasinated”! Remember John F. Kennedy and the conspiracy theories behind his killing…….enough said! There are also many indications that most if not all of the old money families are least “influenced” by alien and or extra-terrestrial groups. For a fact it has been proven (to those that do the research) that American technology is many, many years ahead of what is “publicly” revealed! It has been said that we have Top Secret aircraft and other such things that would make George Lucas “drool”! Much of our technology is back engineered from alien technology that has been acquired through “various” means. The U.S. government for political and social-cultural reasons will not reveal such advancements…..”yet”! Many television shows are essentially based on top secret technology that the government is simply trying to slowly “aclimate” the overall population to the idea of, again so as not to topple our “entrenched” beliefs and creat some sort of “social upheavel”. After this “major” war we will see the creation of a one world government along with some dislosure regarding the alien question!

America Patriotic Poster Series Highlights Introduction of New Brand, StandWeUnited®, Created to Help Unite Country, Overcome Challenges

Rehoboth, MA (PRWEB) June 23, 2008

In a time he believes will augur in a period of renewal and reorientation, graphic designer and artist George Delany has brought to market a distinctive portfolio of seven, inspired, American, patriotic posters. Each offset lithographic poster in the collection includes an image of the American flag (one that flew in front of the designer’s home for years) melded with a song or verse from well-known American history. These include the:

Star-Spangled Banner Poster
America the Beautiful Poster
Amazing Grace Poster
Battle Hymn of the Republic Poster
God Bless America Poster
Pledge of Allegiance Poster
America Poster (My Country Tis of Thee)
“The America patriotic poster series took several years to come together,” the designer explains. “After September 11, 2001, I felt the need to do something to commemorate the event and the time in which we find ourselves, something that may provide an inspired means of revisiting our history so as to help us better navigate through increasingly turbulent times into a new future. Our current, polarized condition is not good. We have to galvanize our will. This why I named the series the ‘Who We Are America Poster Collection’ — across our political spectrum, it attempts to embrace all Americans.”

Mr. Delany would like to see his StandWeUnited® patriotic posters in every classroom in the country, in every library room, offered in every college bookshop and frame shop, hanging in every post office lobby, and in every corporate boardroom. “I think we need to reacquaint, reclaim and reassert who we are, and more importantly, who we want to become,” the designer asserts. To re-familiarize myself with these seven works has been very uplifting. When we first showed these posters on July 4, in Bristol, Rhode Island, people commented with a certain reverence as to the actual words, the lyrics, the presentations of these great pieces of American history — as if they were seeing them for the first time. It was something to observe, it was moving,” the designer offers. “Furthermore, these posters are manageable, measuring 24″ x 18,” he adds.

 

Seeks Sponsors: Mr. Delany seeks corporate sponsors for his poster initiative. He offers three benefits: 1) At discounted, wholesale rates, to any company who orders a minimum of 1000 posters of any particular design, he will print the customer’s corporate logo in the lower left 2) Furthermore, to any company willing to donate a percentage to support Veterans organizations as noted on the StandWeUnited® Website, the designer will match the donation up to 5%.

 

“From any profits, I want sales to support Disabled Veterans and their families, Homeless Veterans, and http://www.armedforcesfoundation.org/index1.html [children of Veterans orphaned by war,” Mr. Delany states. This program gives anyone who buys a chance to contribute, to participate in the country’s healing. 3) With the Olympics and the election, just ahead, this is an opportune time for corporate sponsors to really help out,” Mr. Delany emphasizes. “If your company will be in China for the Olympic Games, you may want to consider this USA poster collection as a handout among the peoples of the world who will be there as sports enthusiasts, guests, and international ambassadors. Domestically, should your company wish to give away our educational patriotic posters to employees, customers, vendors, or staff this July 4, there is still time.”

 

He emphasizes, “This distinctive collection of StandWeUnited® patriotic posters also makes an excellent fund-raising and public-relations vehicle– it’s wall art. Imagine if every pro-sports franchise in the country were to brand these posters, make them available to their fans, and from this, contribute to support US Veterans and their families. I think it would be significant.”

 

“The Star-Spangled Banner Poster,” and others have been used in classrooms, given as gifts, and distributed to returning soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Hospital. “I understand, a set of ‘Who We Are,’ patriotic posters may be hanging in the Green Zone, in Baghdad,” the artist comments. “I’d like to see this series of posters help support the building of the new Freedom Tower at the site of the original World Trade Center. Now this would be wonderful,” Mr. Delany exclaims.

 

This new series builds on the “Statue of Liberty Collector’s Edition” set of four offset lithographs Mr. Delany designed to help celebrate the Centennial of the Statue of Liberty, back in 1986. “Seems a natural,” the designer comments.

 

The American flag used in the design of these seven StandWeUnited® patriotic America posters was photographed by Marty Doyle (http://www.martydoylephotography.com). This entire collection of inspired, educational posters is printed by American Printing, of Rumford, Rhode Island. Larger volumes can be drop-shipped from the printer. Small quantities can be ordered from the website. Each poster can be ordered as a single, or matted, or signed by the designer, or even framed (acrylic) using a handsome double matte.

 

The “Who We Are” Collection of America Patriotic Posters was cited with a Gold Award by Graphis, “The Best of International Visual Communications, 2007″ (http://www.graphis.com). It has been included in a hard-bound book,”Graphis Poster Annual 2007.”

 

On the StandWeUnited® website, you can also find neat summer baseball caps with the multicolored brims in striking red, white and blue, each one branded with the StandWeUnited® logo. The designer has created all these items to comprise his new brand. He has plans for introducing many more in the months just ahead. “Yes, we’re just starting, really. Wait until you see the branded apparel and sports wear, and the new line of greeting cards,” Mr. Delany adds.

WALNUT CREEK — When Keith Brooks Jr. checked his inbox Tuesday, the day after his father’s death, he got a reminder that the 85-year-old never let technology pass him by.

“I came into work for a couple hours (Tuesday) morning and I had e-mail from him from the weekend,” he said. “That was weird.”

A few weeks earlier, his father had joined Facebook. The World War II veteran started working with computers when they were programmed by moving wires around, and he never stopped.

Keith Brooks Sr. was found dead Monday in a fire at his house in the 300 block of Drayton Court in Walnut Creek, according to the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District. The county coroner reported Tuesday that he died from smoke inhalation.

Born in San Bernardino, Brooks entered the Army in World War II and was put in an educational program at Stanford. But when the Army ran short of infantrymen, they were shipped out to Germany, said Herb Denny, a friend of Brooks who was in the program with him.

Brooks had learned to drive a truck in the Forest Service, so the Army made him a Jeep driver, Denny said. “He was a great guy … a very very quiet person,” Denny said. “Just a careful considerate kind of guy.”

After Germany fell to the Allies, Brooks and Denny were shipped to the Pacific theater. “We were intended to invade Japan,” Denny said. But they never got past the Philippines, he said, because the atomic bombs ended the war.

Decades later, he visited Germany again with his wife. “I remember him telling me one time that they’d gone and visited Hitler’s gardens,” Brooks Jr. said. “Last time he was there, the ground was still smoking from the bombing runs.”

After graduating with a degree in business from UC Berkeley, he worked for four decades at the Breuners furniture store. He and his wife, who died six years ago, raised their two sons in Walnut Creek.

He worked in accounting and insurance — and brought computing technology to the company when it was still brand new, Brooks Jr. said.

After he retired, he stayed active at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Walnut Creek, Brooks Jr. said, and would often come over to his son’s house on Sunday afternoons to watch sports. “He was just a hard worker, conscientious, very much of that ‘Greatest Generation,’” Brooks Jr. said.

One of his trips was with other members of the 86th Blackhawk Infantry Division. He created and maintained the webpage for the Acer now-disbanded division’s association of veterans.

Effective Internet Creates Online Presence for North East War Memorials Project

(PRWEB) June 30, 2006

The North East War Memorials Project is to raise awareness of War Memorials and their significance through a brand new website, produced by Effective Internet. The website requires the collation and updating of almost 3500 War Memorials in the North East of England, making them available to the public.

 

This major development, made possible by a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), will assist the Project Group in educating the public about War Memorials. The Project Group will work with local schools and history groups to produce education packs for schools and information guidelines for those wanting to research their own War Memorials. The resulting information will be put onto a searchable database and be available to all via the brand new website.

 

Visitors who have booked to attend the talk by Peter Hart on the Battle of the Somme, being given at the Durham Light Infantry Museum at 2pm on 1st July will also be invited to see a preview of the website, and to meet representatives from the War Memorials Project Group and Effective Internet. The project is expected to be available online later this year.

 

Mrs Janet Brown, chairman of the Project said “This is a very satisfying outcome to a project which shows how the effects of war can be devastating, leaving nobody untouched. If War Memorials help people to think about such things, this is reward in itself.”

 

Keith Bartlett, Heritage Lottery Fund Manager for the North East, said “This is a fantastic project that will enable local communities across the region to discover the contribution made by the people of the North East to conflict across the world. Each War Memorial tells so many stories that should never be forgotten and, thanks to this project, future generations will be able to explore with pride this part of our shared history.”

For the War Memorials Project Group, contact Janet Brown on 01670 790456.

War Books Spike in Popularity in May – War with Iraq and Trojan War Drive Resurgence in Interest in Wars Past

HOUSTON, TX (PRWEB) June 10, 2004

The current war with Iraq and the recent film release, Troy, has caused a resurgence in interest in wars past such as World War I, World War II, the Persian Gulf War, and the fabled Trojan war. eBooks on war were most widely read on Questia, the world’s largest online library of books, in the month of May. Six out of the top 20 best read ebooks were books related to wars past. Another three books on war made the top 35 best read ebooks list. Readers on the Questia online library of more than 49,000 books and 390,000 articles are primarily students using the Questia service for research paper topics. As demonstrated by the May Top 20 Best Read eBooks list, the current war with Iraq has had a strong influence on the research paper topics selected during the end of the spring academic semester. To see the full list of best read ebooks for May, please visit http://www.top20ebooks.com.

 

An Encyclopedia of War and Ethics, a 539-page book on subjects related to war was the number one best read ebook in May. Entries within An Encyclopedia of War and Ethics discuss efforts to judge and to justify war and each entry has a bibliography with suggested further reading. Nuclear war, casualties of war, and human nature and war are just a few of the numerous war-related entries within the encyclopedia. The other popular books on war pertained to World War I, World War II, the Vietnam War, the Persian Gulf War and war-related subjects such as torture. Interestingly, the fourth most popular ebook in May, a book on a war fought during ancient times, was the Iliad, Homer’s epic poem on the war against Troy. The recent release of the film, Troy, starring Brad Pitt, is likely to be the main driver of interest in this war-torn story.

 

Questia users can perform their own search of the more than 49,000 books and 390,000 articles or they can access over 5,000 research paper topics on the Questia website. Each of the 5,000 research paper topics includes premier books and articles on a given topic with content hand-selected by academic librarians. Research paper topics on war such as World War I, World War II, and Persian Gulf War are popular war-related subjects and are easily accessible through an alphabetized listing of the research paper topics or through the Questia search feature.

 

To develop the Top 20 Best Read eBooks, the reading patterns of Questia users are aggregated and then ranked, with ranking based primarily on page views (each time one user looks at a page results in one “page view”) and the overall number of unique users who accessed that title. Secondarily, book length is factored in to correct for the fact that shorter books, even if read in their entirety, would have fewer page views. The May 2004 list and past lists can be accessed at http://www.top20ebooks.com. The June 2004 list will be available online in early July.

 

The Questia service is a personal online library for its subscribers, offering unlimited, simultaneous access to complete titles regardless of how many other users are reading the same book, magazine, newspaper or journal article. Research tools help students and researchers organize, highlight, cite, and store their work on personalized bookshelves in the Questia library. A list of 5,000 research paper topics is included in the Questia library. Subscription fees range from $ 19.95 per month to $ 119.95 per year.
