Göbekli Tepe (Turkish: [gœbecˈli teˈpe], "Potbelly Hill"; known as Girê Mirazan or Xirabreşkê in Kurdish is a Neolithic archaeological site near the city of Şanlıurfa in Southeastern Anatolia, Turkey. Dated to the Pre-Pottery Neolithic, between c. 9500 and 8000 BCE, the site comprises a number of large circular structures supported by massive stone pillars – the world's oldest known megaliths. Many of these pillars are richly decorated with abstract anthropomorphic details, clothing, and reliefs of wild animals, providing archaeologists rare insights into prehistoric religion and the particular iconography of the period. The 15 m (50 ft)-high, 8 ha (20 acres) tell also includes many smaller rectangular buildings, quarries, and stone-cut cisterns from the Neolithic, as well as some traces of activity from later periods.

This photo, taken on October 6, 1944, near Kapellen, Belgium, shows Sgt Harold A. Marshall, a Canadian sniper of the Calgary Highlanders' Scout and Sniper Platoon. Day after day, Harold confronted German forces with his Lee-Enfield No. 4 Mk I rifle, and enabled Canadian soldiers to keep moving forward, but two months after this picture was taken, a German bullet struck his leg. Doctors wanted to amputate, but he refused and said: "I came with two legs, and I'm going home with two". Following the war, Harold worked for the City of Calgary Electric System and married Catherine, the love of his life. Together, they had three lovely children. This true Canadian hero passed away on January 18, 2013, at the age of 94.

What was the first Mcdonalds in Canada?
Richmond
In 1967, the first McDonald's Canada opened in Richmond, B.C. We've been growing with our communities and serving quality food at great value ever since.
I was there on opening day.

Daniel "Chappie" James Jr. (February 11, 1920 – February 25, 1978) was a fighter pilot in the U.S. Air Force, who in 1975 became the first African American to reach the rank of four-star general. He is the third person of Sub-Saharan origin to become highest-ranking officer in the Western world after Thomas-Alexandre Dumas (1793) and Toussaint Louverture (1797).

Many exceptional and brave men served in Vietnam such as Gunnery Sergeant Carlos Hathcock, Captain John ‘Rip’ Ripley, Sergeant Ed Eaton, and Captain John McCain. Among these gallant heroes was Jerry “Mad Dog” Shriver of the US 5th Special Forces.
A lot of what Shriver did with MACV-SOG may never be known as they were highly classified missions, often in countries that they should not have been in. But the decorations he was awarded were a reflection of his bravery and dedication to his duty and achievements.

He received two Silver Stars, three Army Commendation Medals for Valor, seven Bronze Stars, one Purple Heart, one Air Medal, and the Soldier’s Medal during his short life.

Interesting, thanks.

I remember having 4 of the Nasty Boats protecting our ship on a trip up the Saigon River to deliver a dredge.

We were the largest ship to traverse the River during the War and they were worried the VC would try and attack.

Luckily they didn't.
