From the 59 Veterans Project: MOH Winner Douglas Munro!



With over 100 million military personnel in uniform during its many years of conflict, World War II is the largest and most widespread war in human history. Its casualties are staggering: with over 60 million civilians killed and over 25 million military personnel losing their lives from over 60 countries around the globe.
Every branch of the U.S. Military was supremely engaged in WWII including the United States Coast Guard. And in its illustrious history of saving lives and rescuing people at sea, only one member of the U.S. Coast Guard was ever awarded America’s highest award for valor: The Medal of Honor. And it occurred during World War II.
His was Signalman First Class Douglas A. Munro. His MOH citation reads in part: “For extraordinary heroism and conspicuous gallantry in action above and beyond the call of duty as Officer-in-Charge of a group of Higgins boats, engaged in the evacuation of a Battalion of Marines trapped by enemy Japanese forces at Point Cruz, Guadalcanal, on September 27, 1942…” As it is, Munro saved hundreds of Marines that day, and in the process contributed greatly to America’s first military victory in WWII. During his valiant act he also gave the “last full measure of devotion,” and was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor and also the Purple Heart Medal in May 1943 by President Roosevelt at the White House.  Accepting the awards were his parents, Mr. and Mrs. James Munro of Cle Elum, Washington.

All of us here at the 59 VETERANS PROJECT proudly salute the United States Coast Guard and all our military veterans for whom our project is intended.  We also remember and salute Douglas A. Munro, Coast Guardsman and hero of the Battle of Guadalcanal.  His valor and gallantry will never be forgotten!

Moving Masters Wants to Tell You About Audie Murphy

MOVING MASTERS enjoys providing its flat-rate, long-distance moving services to customers throughout the New York, NYC, Tri-State region and east coast of the U.S. We value all our customers and appreciate their appreciation of the valuable service we provide them. But we have to admit we value our seniors and veterans most of all, perhaps.
Just visit our Seniors & Veterans page on our website ( and you’ll see what we mean. So it is our great pleasure to share this post from the 59 Vets Project on the subject of a renowned U.S. veteran…who was undoubtedly one of the bravest men to ever live!
Probably the most decorated combat soldier in United States military history is World War II hero Audie Murphy. Among his medals and awards are the Congressional Medal of Honor, the Distinguished Service Cross, two Silver Stars, the Bronze Star (2) with Combat V, the Legion of Merit, three Purple Hearts, the French Legion of Honor, and so many more it’s impossible to enumerate them here. Audie also was promoted to the final officer rank of captain after starting out as an enlisted man. What is really funny is the fact that he attempted to enlist in every branch of the service but was rejected because of his size, until the Army finally accepted him.
Immediately after the war Audie was discovered by the great film actor James Cagney who then helped him get into films and become a movie star in his own right, where he made over 40 films, some of them with the biggest movie stars and directors in Hollywood. In addition, Audie Murphy wrote several hit songs and gripping poetry, a sample of which is included with this post.

Oh, gather ’round me, comrades,
and listen while I speak;
Of a war, a war, a war —
where hell is six feet deep.
Along the shore, the cannons roar.
Oh how can a soldier sleep?
The going’s slow on Anzio
and hell is six feet deep.
Praise be to God for this captured sod
that’s rich where blood does seep;
With yours and mine, like butchered swine;
and hell is six feet deep.
That death does wait there’s no debate;
no triumph will we reap
The crosses grow on Anzio,
where hell is six feet deep.

“These cloudy days make you wanna cry.  It breaks your heart when someone leaves and you don’t know why.” –Glenn Frey

Dear Song List:

The world lost Glenn Frey recently.  He was an inimitable songwriter, singer, musician and co-founder of the equally inimitable soft rock pop group The Eagles.  I don’t know about you, but a fair portion of the soundtrack of my life consisted of the music of The Eagles and of their lilting songs when members of the group went solo.  This was definitely true for Glenn Frey; so I’ve included a few of his solo hits here as my top favorite songs created by his artist’s mind and soul.

This year has not gotten off to a good start, in my humble opinion.  Beautiful music, and the artists who create beautiful music, very much help define the canvass of our lives and become part of those permanent memories we take with us through life.  Standing in a supermarket or at a car wash, a Glenn Frey or Don Henley or Eagles song comes on…and you are immediately teleported back to a happy time in your life.  A time that is unforgettable and irreplaceable.  Thus the power of beautiful music is omnipotent and becomes so much of who we are and what we feel and think.  I hope we sustain no more losses like David Bowie and Glenn Frey this year.  I want 2016 to be filled with only happy memories and beautiful music.  I don’t believe I am alone in these hopes.  Yes?

59 Veterans Project is Taking 4K/3D Photos in Joshua Tree!

Here at the 59 Veterans Project we have been quietly testing cameras that will not only capture 4K/3D video for the project but are affordable.
Here are 4 images from the prototype testing this past December at Joshua Tree National Park.  Credits go out to Ron Donkersley for capturing the COB (in the Black Hat) for some pretty great pictures.
This is only part of what we will be teaching our military veterans who accompany us through out beautiful 59 national parks as we teach them 4K/3D photography and videography and help them segue into dynamic, viable careers.
This is our project. This is our goal and cause.  And which we are drawing closer–ever closer–to officially launching this year.  We hope you will share our messages and our cause with your online friends and followers.   We hope you will support us and contribute–even if it’s liking our Facebook page and posts or giving us a share and saying hello.  We hope you will care.
