The first combat amputee to climb and reach the summit of Mount Everest!

 

Wounded Vet Charlie Linville

PLEASE SHARE THIS INSPIRING STORY & HISTORICAL EVENT!

Wounded U.S. vet Charlie Linville became the first combat amputee to climb and reach the summit of Mount Everest. This is what we mean here at the 59 VETERANS PROJECT when we talk about ascending the summit with our military veterans and with your support and participation!

The Heroes Project announced Thursday that 30-year-old Idaho native and retired U.S. Marine Corp Staff Sgt. Charlie Linville had reached the 29,029-foot summit of the famous mountain. It was the third attempt to reach the summit by the Boise High School graduate after previous tries in 2014 and 2015. Linville was defusing bombs in Afghanistan in 2011 when he was injured as an explosive device detonated, leading to the amputation of his right leg.

Thus it is our honor and pleasure to share this inspiring story and historical event with all our online friends and supporters. Watch the attached video and be inspired! And please visit our online site to learn more about the 59 VETERANS PROJECT. And our soon-to-launch enterprise to help veterans find careers in 4K and VR videography and photography while traveling, filming and ascending many lofty summits throughout our magnificent 59 national parks!

HSR IN EUROPE SHOULD BE IN AMERICA!

THALYS BULLET TRAIN
SHARE THIS BULLET MESSAGE WITH YOUR FRIENDS!
On May 20 there was a sales promotion from the Thalys company. Only on May 20 you could buy a single ticket for between 20/05/06 and 20/09/06 for €20 (about $20) between any destination served by Thalys trains in Europe.
For example: a friend bought a single trip ticket from Brussels to Paris for just €20. The distance between these two cities is around the same distance between Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, Florida. Because of the cheap prices and Bullet-train speed of HSR, not a single airliner can compete with this, not even the bus services and certainly no automobile.
Imagine if this would happen in the U.S., traveling between Washington DC and NYC in less than 1 hour and 45 minutes for the price of €20? Why spend $200 for an airplane?
The success of such pricing and HSR in Europe have also increased the demand for seats. A few trains will consist of three units. The length will be 600 meters but the capacity will be 1153 passengers. To put things in perspective, the capacity will be 132.59% of an Airbus A380.
America needs high speed rail!

The Sullivan Brothers: an amazing story!

FIVE SULLIVAN BROTHERS
SHARE THIS AMAZING STORY!
World War II undoubtedly has more amazing stories to tell than any other war or time in history. One such amazing (and tragic) story is what inspired the making of what many consider the greatest war movie of all time: Saving Private Ryan.
On January 3, 1942, with the stipulation that they serve together, five brothers–the children of Thomas (1883–1965) and Alleta Sullivan (1895–1972) of Waterloo, Iowa–joined the US Navy. They were Joseph, Francis, Albert, Madison and George Sullivan, who later became known as “The Sullivans” and “The Fighting Sullivan Brothers.” After basic training and ready to serve in the war effort, all five were assigned to the light cruiser USS Juneau.
The Juneau participated in a number of naval engagements during the months-long Guadalcanal Campaign beginning in August 1942, and early in the morning of November 13, 1942, during the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal, it was struck by a Japanese torpedo and forced to withdraw. Later that day, it was struck again by a torpedo from Japanese submarine I-26. The torpedo likely hit the thinly armored cruiser at or near the ammunition magazines and the ship exploded and quickly sank.
Needless to say, all five Sullivan brothers were killed in action with the sinking of the USS Juneau. This unprecedented tragedy caused Congress to pass a law that military siblings not serve together on the same ship or combat command. And this unprecedented tragedy years later inspired film director Steven Spielberg to make the incredibly poignant WWII film Saving Private.
There is so much more to this amazing but tragic story than what we have told here. The brothers left a sister, Genevieve (1917–1975). Albert was survived by a wife and son. The Fighting Sullivan Brothers were national heroes. President Franklin Roosevelt sent a letter of condolence to their parents. Pope Pius XII sent a silver religious medal and rosary with his message of regret. The Iowa Senate and House adopted a formal resolution of tribute to the Sullivan brothers.
Thomas and Alleta Sullivan made speaking appearances at war plants and shipyards on behalf of the war effort. Later, Alleta participated in the launching of a destroyer: USS The Sullivans, named after her sons. Today and every Memorial Day, Veterans Day and July 4th we should remember the Sullivan Brothers and all our military veterans and active military who serve our great country as well as those who gave “the last full measure of devotion.” And this we are honored to do here at the 59 VETERANS PROJECT every day!

A WINDY DREAM

WINDY BEACH

PLEASE READ, FEEL & SHARE!

I love writing love poems for clients.  And other kinds of personalized poems to get your boat to float and your heart to soar forevermore.  You have something poignant and profound to say and to immortalize into words, yes?  It’s my delight to make it so for you.  Be it an eulogy or goodbye poem, a special thank you or to brand a business, or a simple friendship or love poem.  You love someone, shouldn’t you say?  In an unforgettable way?  And what is a love poem?

Here, this is a love poem…

A WINDY DREAM
I once fell in love, and she became my dearest friend,
Here so long ago, by the dissolute, windy sea.
And her hair was redolent and soft, and touched by the wind,
Here so long ago, where she came and fell in love with me.
And there we would stroll each day until the morning’s end,
Till the evening showed and caused the sand to rise and hiss;
And draw us indoors and to the warmth where we would pretend
Our lips were parched–but not because we could no longer kiss!
Nor because our hearts were earnest, and life is so frail.
Nor because forever is impossible to find.
But because love is a dream that even life can’t unveil,
It is not what death kills that hurts, but what it leaves behind.
And so it is when forever dies and will not tell
All the times that were, and all the times that could have been:
How the winds blew and for a time allowed our hearts to swell
Until time must sweep away what can never live again.
So now it is I stroll the windy mornings alone,
And curse the dark evenings that harbor death and despair.
But since love is like a dream that lives in places unknown,
I forever search for you in the wind that touched your hair.
