Bernie Fowler’s war was in South Pacific on USS Engstrom

Former Senator Bernie Fowler, now of Prince Fredrick, attended basic training at the Great Lakes naval base and went on to basic engineering school. After that, he was shipped to Viejo, California where he came aboard the destroyer escort ship USS Engstrom DE-50. On this relatively small support ship, Fowler would spend his near two-year tour during the war.

The diesel-electric powered Engstrom traveled across the Pacific to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, where the men geared up for what became, for Fowler, a run to numerous island bases in the Pacific Ocean, where some of the most horrific battles of the Pacific side of World War II were fought.

The primary operations aboard the Engstrom, and similar destroyer escorts, were to provide protective escorts for fleets near these islands. They also conducted anti-submarine warfare “sub chasing” and “picket runs” around island bases to look out for enemy submarines, ships or aircraft.

Mayor Bozo to Radio Station: Don’t send reporters to my events who ask tough questions – bans Ken Burns

Press Association condemns Mayor’s banning of reporter: Further, her allegations of consistently threatening and intimidating behavior are without merit, as Burns had not received any warnings or other indication that his behavior during his long-time coverage of city government was not appropriate.

Opinion: Hillary Clinton: ‘My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders’

And an end to U.S. sovereignty. When you get down to it, Clinton is not running for President of the United States. She is selling us down the river to service a globalist agenda. The only question is whether the rust belt states of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Michigan are paying attention.

Opinion: Will Bret Stephens say Hillary Clinton has a black soul, too?

Does Mr. Stephens think it is undisguised sadism to declare publicly that about a girl that who was so brutally raped and beaten that she spent days in a coma and was told that she could never have children, and in fact never had children? Obviously not, because he is just fine with Clinton becoming President.

Mayor Rudy Giuliani fires up Republican Convention with an epic speech

Giuliani’s transformation of NYC was also covered in one of Malcolm Gladwell’s books. NYC is larger, more populous, has a larger economy and is more ethnically diverse than many countries, and Giuliani unquestionably put his stamp on it.
