Know Your Own History - History

It is important to learn history, for to paraphrase the famous saying, if we do not know history, we will repeat its mistakes. If we want to know who we should vote for we need to understand our history and how we got here. But history is not only a story of a country of group it is also your story. You can learn about you own history. By learning your own history you may better identify with national history.

Find Out the History of Your Ancestors

Every person is unique in their own way. A range of things make you unique and some include your culture, characteristics, and also where you’re from. For this reason, at some point in your life, it’s a good idea to start asking questions about your family history. You should know where they’re from and go back as many generations as possible. It isn’t necessarily a process that will yield instant results, but it’s one that could be exciting and rewarding. Learning about your ancestors could take time, patience and careful planning. Here is how you can find out the history of your ancestors on that note.

  1. Explore Your Town of Origin

A smart place to start when trying to find out the history of your ancestors would be to explore your town of origin. Check local newspapers, from as far back as you can find, to see if you can discover anything about your descendants. You could also look for obituary notices as they could lead you to living relatives you haven’t met that could help with your family tree. Searching death records and visiting your local library could be helpful too.

  1. Do Research on Your Name

Your name can provide insight and meaning into who you are and where your ancestors are from. Doing research on the origin of names could tell you exactly where your family lived, their national origin, and their occupations or nicknames. There are websites online that can help with this so see if they’re useful.

  1. Pick Family Members Brains

Old and young relatives can give you insight into who your ancestors are and where they’re from. If your parents and grandparents are alive, ask for information such as dates of birth, marriage or death certificates as well as occupations. You can also ask for the contact details of extended family members that you haven’t met yet to help as well. They could give you pictures, letters or certifications that could go a long way. Try drawing your family tree on paper. This way you have something to refer back to as you continue along your journey of discovery.

  1. Check the U.S. Census

Another way that you can find out the history of your ancestors would be by checking the U.S. census. It’s one of the largest resources for family history and a good way to examine your family tree. Trace both parents and grandparents through the census and be sure to take down details such as their age, occupation, residence and birthplace. The census can help you find results as far back as 1790.

  1. Get a DNA Test

Try getting a DNA test to find migration paths and find your ancient ancestors. It can help you go thousands of years back to see what your branch on the family tree is like. If you do decide to take this route, choose a service that’s specifically for ancestry research. Also, choose one that has a large database of people that have been tested to increase your chances of success.


Permission has been given to debrief a top-secret operation, originally classified for nearly four decades, so that all Operators are informed on when and how to complete it.

APPROVED FOR RELEASE ON 26-AUG-2020

This week in Verdansk, we need you to be a part of history, lest we be doomed to repeat it.

Know Your History: This is a limited-time operation available for your squad to engage within Warzone.

Additional times have been granted. Report for duty at the following dates and times:

Should any Operator falter, we will redeploy them to Verdansk immediately to finish the operation. Nothing, including interference from a greater threat, should stop you from trying to making contact with our asset in the field and securing the blueprint.

Once this operation is live, the public will be informed of it through civilian channels. However, for those that wish to experience this four-part operation read on for your mission briefing.

Step One: COLLECT MAP CODES

Prior to infiltration, your squad will be given vital pieces of intelligence: map codes. These codes, while incomplete, are necessary for finding the “key” that unlocks information on our asset’s whereabouts.

Regardless of alliances formed prior to infiltration, treat any force besides your squad within Verdansk as hostile.

It is believed that all other Operators in Verdansk will also carry code fragments. Extract them by any means necessary.

A squad that collects five map codes will be given enough information towards the key’s location and can progress to the next step in the operation.

Step Two: SECURE THE KEY

It is believed that the locked bunkers around Verdansk hold the encryption device used to access the asset’s rendezvous code.

Your provided Heads-Up Display (codename: HUD) will provide a waypoint of the key’s location, as well as attempt to overcome any serious electronic countermeasures.

Travel via foot or vehicle to the waypoint ASAP, collect the keycard, then proceed with further instruction.

Step Three: CRACK THE MAP CODE

At this point in the operation, we must assume that electronic countermeasures will be employed against you.

With key in hand, your HUD will attempt to mark a radius around a locked crate where the rendezvous information is located.

Locate the container, open it, and procure the map cipher to complete the Contract.

Step Four: WIELD THE WEAPON

The rendezvous point intel may be codified to prevent accidental retrieval.

Use your provided Tac Map to determine what quadrant our asset is located in.

Note that the locked box and point of contact may be at great distance from one another. Vehicle use is encouraged without worry of stealth, as cover from the greater threat will be all but blown.

Search for the asset within the quadrant, confirm location, and make contact with the asset to complete the Contract.

After contact, you’ll be rewarded the Bay of Pigs blueprint and other commendations that can be equipped in Identity for your efforts. The blueprint name may be familiar to veterans…

In terms of extraction - we do not know how you will escape Verdansk alongside the asset. Intel suggests the Stadium will aid in your escape. However, we cannot guarantee your survival.

Thank you for volunteering for this operation.

Good luck, and weapons free.

You Know Your History? These Podcasts Aren’t So Sure

It’s hard to overstate the impact of “Revisionist History” on the podcast landscape. Last year, its three-minute trailer hit No. 1 on Apple’s charts. The show’s success partly reflects the presence of a celebrity host, the proto-TED Talk sage Malcolm Gladwell. When the second season dropped this summer, Mr. Gladwell’s return was feted on the morning shows and in the Sunday Styles section of The New York Times.

But the real draw is the concept. In the show, Mr. Gladwell weaves counterintuitive tales about historical moments he’s deemed “overlooked and misunderstood.” Each episode “re-examines something from the past — an event, a person, an idea, even a song — and asks whether we got it right the first time.”

Now it has spawned its own podcast micro-genre, with seemingly every podcast company starting or partnering with its own history-bending show. In “What Really Happened?,” the documentary filmmaker Andrew Jenks goes on what he calls a “rogue investigation” aimed at “unraveling newfound narratives” on pop historical moments. In “BackStory,” which joined Panoply’s podcast network this year, historians draw connections between current events and the past, throwing out “the history you had to learn” in favor of “the history you want to learn.” There are new podcasts revisiting a 1990s mass-suicide cult (Stitcher’s “Heaven’s Gate”), Charles Manson’s early life (Wondery’s “Young Charlie”), the Watergate scandal (Slate’s’s “Slow Burn”) and the Civil War (Gimlet’s “Uncivil”).

The market is suddenly so crowded, new entrants are arriving with increasingly knotty conceits. The gimmick behind “The Thread,” from the digital news site OZY, is to stitch together events decades and cultures apart through a series of historical links and coincidences the first season carries the listener from the assassination of Lennon (John) to the revolution of Lenin (Vladimir). And “Omnibus,” hosted by the “Jeopardy!” champion Ken Jennings and the singer John Roderick, pitches the idea forward, billing itself as “an encyclopedic reference work of strange-but-true stories” collected “as a time capsule for future generations.”

The Trump era has had a way of destabilizing America’s narratives about itself — its embrace of the free press, its success as a melting pot and the accessibility of the American dream. It makes sense that podcasters would seize on this moment of uncertainty to try to shop some answers. But is our collective historical knowledge really so backward that we need this many podcasts to straighten it out? And how effective is a narrative twist in a podcast episode at actually illuminating our past?

These podcasters have to make certain assumptions about the listener’s understanding of history before they can claim to upend it. That can sometimes feel less like revealing a hidden truth and more like building a straw man and blowing it down.

In a news release, the podcast network Wondery played up its new show “Young Charlie” with the claim that “many don’t know the largely underreported formative days of the world’s most notorious mass murderer.” (Maybe if you discard the 2013 best-selling biography by Jeff Guinn.) The “What Really Happened?” episode revisiting Britney Spears’s 2007 meltdown might be illuminating if you haven’t yet digested recent investigative reporting and feminist analysis on Ms. Spears or if humanizing details about female celebrities (like that Ms. Spears is probably not as dumb as she’s portrayed in the tabloids) strike you as world-shifting.

The genre’s potential pitfalls are baked into the Gladwell model. It’s difficult for even a storyteller as skilled as Mr. Gladwell to engineer surprise re-readings of history on wildly different topics. At its best, “Revisionist History” turns a dry policy matter into a rollicking tale — like the second season opener’s tirade against golf that unfolds into an appalling exposé of the lengths the wealthy will go to bend tax law their way.

But at its worst, it drives an anecdote to an unreasonable conclusion. In an episode investigating the sadness of country music, Mr. Gladwell plays a Vince Gill track and opines: “Listening to that song makes me wonder if some portion of what we call ‘ideological division’ in America actually isn’t ideological at all. How big are the political differences between red and blue states anyway? In the grand scheme of things, not that big. Maybe what we’re seeing instead is a difference of emotional expression.”

Probably not, though. Sometimes the counterintuitive take is just wrong.

The most absorbing entrants to the revised-history genre are the ones that dive into singular historical events with great modern resonance, as “Uncivil” does with the Civil War. The hosts Chenjerai Kumanyika and Jack Hitt make swaggering pronouncements of their work as “ransacking American history” and “punching it in the face,” but the idea underpinning “Uncivil” — that the cultural and political factors that divided Americans and erupted into war are still in play today — is hardly a Gladwellian counternarrative. That’s a good thing. The podcast is sturdily grounded in historical fact, never the argumentative whim of its hosts. The tension and drama come from the fact that the real history of the war, slavery and race in America is constantly being relitigated and rewritten by politically motivated actors.

One recent episode, “The Spin,” jumps off a recent quote from the White House chief of staff, John F. Kelly, that Robert E. Lee was “an honorable man” who was simply expressing his “loyalty to state.” That view is, as the hosts put it, “an achievement of a P.R. campaign that goes back 150 years,” and the episode succinctly tracks the effort to paper over the Confederate pro-slavery cause with the euphemistic label “states’ rights” — marching from Reconstruction, through the First World War and right up to the present day.

Watergate presents a less easy comparison to our current moment. Two embattled administrations 40 years apart are grounded in such specific circumstances, it’s hard to trace too many live historical connections like the ones unearthed in “Uncivil.” So “Slow Burn,” hosted by the Slate reporter Leon Neyfakh, excels by taking a sidelong look at Watergate, drawing lessons from the experience of living through a scandal as it unfolds. “We are living in a time right now when it feels like anything could happen,” Mr. Neyfakh says in the first episode. “It makes you wonder: If we were living in the next Watergate, would we know it?”

An early allusion, in the podcast’s first episode, between the Nixon-era loudmouth Martha Mitchell and the Trump-era loudmouth Anthony Scaramucci feels a little stretched, mostly because we don’t yet know how Mr. Scaramucci’s story will settle in the historical record. But the show needs only to flick at certain details to suggest stunning and troubling commentaries on our current political and media systems. Like the moment when Gore Vidal goes on Dick Cavett’s show and gleefully divulges, “I have to have my Watergate fix every single morning in the paper.” Or the fact that the early alarm bells rung by George McGovern’s team were easily dismissed because he was such a deeply unpopular candidate for president.

These podcasts benefit from their depth of focus, which allows for nuances that often feel shaved away from the tidier, one-episode historical tales. Not that listeners seem to mind, judging by the download numbers and starred reviews racking up all across the genre. Mr. Gladwell’s books have annoyed academics and critics alike for cherry-picking anecdotes and building hunches into sweeping pop scientific “laws.” But the podcast form is kind to the cherry picker. Only so much supporting evidence can be packed into an audio tale.

Even more so than with the written word, listeners are made helpless to the host’s narrative, rendered incapable of clicking a link or checking an index for more information. And when it’s over, it’s a chore to go back and pin down exactly what was said. That all lends itself to the kind of immersive experience that makes history feel new, even if it’s not.


Ways to get your work history report

If you’ve been working for many years or you’ve changed jobs often, you may not remember details about every prior position. If you need assistance accurately listing your previous employment, you have several options to obtain a work history report:

Social Security records

The first option for finding information about your past jobs is using Social Security records. Whenever you are hired, your employer uses your Social Security number to make sure you’re eligible to work in the United States. All of your employment history should be tied to that number.

Social Security records will also report the percentage of income you paid to the Social Security benefits program. Visit the Social Security Administration’s website and search for Form 7050. Download the form, and either fill it out on your computer or print it and fill it in by hand. Paper copies of Form 7050 are also available at your local Social Security office. You’ll need to include your name, Social Security number and date of birth. Then mark that you need an itemized statement of earnings for a range of years, which you’ll specify on the form.

You have to pay a fee to get your records from the Social Security Administration. This fee is currently $136 for a noncertified statement and $192 for a certified statement. A certified statement is only necessary if you’ve been asked for it. In most cases, a noncertified statement will suffice. The report processing period may last up to four months, depending on how busy the SSA is when you request it. If you haven’t received it within that period, contact the SSA to ask for a status update.

All your employment history that is connected to your Social Security number will be included in the report. You can either submit the report to the employer or agency who asked for your work history, or you can use the information on the report to fill out the required forms.

Social Security information is also available at your state’s unemployment office. This option could also be free, although it will become more difficult to get the records if you’ve lived in multiple states. Check with the office in your state to see what records you have access to and if you could start putting together your work history this way.

Credit report

Credit reporting agencies don’t necessarily keep records on an individual’s employment history. However, you may be able to get some information about your previous work history from this source. If you provided information about your employer when you applied for a loan, a credit card or another credit-related inquiry, your credit report may contain those details. You can receive one free credit report per year from all three credit reporting agencies𠅎xperian, Equifax and TransUnion. The Annual Credit Report website is the only option the Federal Trade Commission authorizes.

You can also contact the major credit reporting agencies yourself to get the information you need. The reports from these agencies will likely include the last employment verification date or the date your employment status was last reported as part of your credit history.

IRS records

Another option to obtain your full employment history is to request your IRS records. Whether you work as a full- or part-time employee, your employer has to provide you with a Form W-2 at the end of each tax year. This form includes all income you earned with that employer, as well as how much was withheld for taxes. A Form W-2 also includes the name and address of the employer and your employment dates.

If you have copies of your tax returns from the previous years, you can use this information to find and report your employment history. The W-2s you received will outline where you worked and how much you paid in taxes during a specific tax year. If you don’t have copies, you may be able to find the information online if you used online tax preparation services. Some of these companies offer copies of your tax returns for free, while others charge a fee.

The IRS also has the information on file from when you submitted your tax returns each year. Visit the IRS website and download Form 4506. This form allows you to request copies of your previous tax returns, which will include the name and address of your past employers, along with when you were employed with each company. Form 4506 can be downloaded and filled out digitally, or printed and filled out by hand. Include any previous home addresses if you lived somewhere else when you filed your tax returns, along with the years of the tax returns you need.

Online records

You can also search for information about your previous work experience online. You may have an online profile on a networking website that includes your past resume or details about your last jobs. You can also use a search engine to look up your full name to see if this brings up any information about your previous jobs.

Look for documents that might display your work history, as well as those that could remind you of past positions you held. Even blogs, social media profiles and other online presences may include details about your work. Review your email inbox to see if you received any emails from coworkers in past positions. You may even want to search for work-related keywords to find emails you sent or received relating to your past employers.


Warp speed!

Ah, the warp drive, that darling of science fiction plot devices. So, what about a warp drive? Is that even a really a thing?

Let's start with the "warping" part of a warp drive. Without doubt, Albert Einstein's theory of general relativity ("GR") represents space and time as a 4-dimensional "fabric" that can be stretched and bent and folded. Gravity waves, representing ripples in the fabric of spacetime, have now been directly observed. So, yes spacetime can be warped. The warping part of a warp drive usually means distorting the shape of spacetime so that two distant locations can be brought close together — and you somehow "jump" between them.

This was a basic idea in science fiction long before Star Trek popularized the name "warp drive." But until 1994, it had remained science fiction, meaning there was no science behind it. That year, Miguel Alcubierre wrote down a solution to the basic equations of GR that represented a region that compressed spacetime ahead of it and expanded spacetime behind to create a kind of traveling warp bubble. This was really good news for warp drive fans.


Try this: You should treat your assignments like tests. Try not to look up any answers that you don’t have to. Grind your brain over them. Try to figure everything out without looking it up or asking for help. It sucks short term but it’s better to do it now than when you get the test.

Here's How To Find And Track Your Medical History

Making an appointment to address a health issue seems simple enough in theory. But as many of us know, it can actually get complicated really fast.

This is particularly true when you’re juggling multiple specialists or trying to find a general physician that’s best suited for you. Heck, it can even be challenging to recall what past conditions or issues you’ve dealt with when your doctor asks. When it comes down to it, you need to be your own case manager ― especially when it comes to keeping track of your medical history.

Gathering (and remembering!) your whole health history ― which can include vaccines, diagnoses, prescriptions and tests you’ve had ― can seem daunting. But there are actually several resources that can help you keep tabs on it.

Below are just a few ways you can get ahold your health history and keep track of it in the future:

Try a (secure!) app

There are apps and online services on the market that make it easier than ever to access your medical records and get a clear picture of your entire health history.

“While nearly all health records are now created in an electronic format, many organizations continue to share this information in a way that does not capitalize on the true value of the electronic record,” said Julie Demaree, a physician assistant in Saratoga Springs, New York.

That’s why Demaree works with Hixny, an online health care portal for patients in parts of the Northeast that allows them to access records. She hopes that all medical practices start to use tools like this to make things easier for patients.

PicnicHealth is another option, if you’re up for paying a monthly subscription fee (the service is $33 per month along with a records retrieval fee when you first sign up). The San Francisco-based company aggregates all your health records and transcribes them into a visual, interactive timeline that both you and your doctors can access. You give the service permission to contact your doctors’ offices, and from there, they continually update it.

“When you get sick, there are a million things on your mind,” said PicnicHealth co-founder Noga Leviner. “The hassle of getting copies of your records shouldn’t have to be another stressor. . With the service, we do everything we can to make sure paperwork and medical records aren’t another thing you have to worry about.”

As someone who lives with Crohn’s disease, Leviner understands the overwhelming experience of managing a complex medical case firsthand.

“When I was first diagnosed … I assumed one doctor would keep a complete file of my medical records and would make sure that all the other doctors I visited were up to date on my condition,” she said. “Instead, the enormous responsibility of collecting, organizing and effectively communicating my medical history fell solely on me.”

If you have an iPhone, the Health app may also be a resource to access some of your records for free. If you are part of a medical group that ties into the app directly (for example, Scripps Medical Group or LabCorp), you can connect your patient portal to the Health app and see your records there.

There’s also LabFinder, which is an online service that has “no fee for the patients, unlimited storage and also is a convenient appointment management system,” explained Robert Segal , a New York-based cardiologist and co-founder of LabFinder . “A patient can book a lab or radiology test, manage their test results and help to avoid surprise medical bills since patients can make sure that their insurance is in-network before they even go for the test.”

There are plenty more app options on the market as well, Demaree said. Do your research and see what aligns with your interests. But whichever you choose, you’ll want to make sure you’re dealing with a secure platform and a company that’s compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, the federal medical privacy law, so you know your medical information is safe.

“While there is no standard HIPAA ‘certification,’ companies can show proof of third-party audits that were completed to assess the protections in place,” explained Greg Burrell, a San Francisco-based physician and vice president of clinical product at Carbon Health. In other words, services you use should be able to prove they’re a secure company.

Ask your doctor if they have a lab portal

Segal said that a lab portal is “an online storage unit where centers can store test results and patients can access them anytime.” However, there can be a caveat: Segal noted that even though there are many doctors and specialists who have this service through their offices, there’s a chance they operate independently and don’t communicate with each other.

“So if a patient decides to book an X-ray on company A, and book a blood test on company B, the patient would have to access their results in two different websites or platforms,” he said.

Lab portals can generally be useful if your doctor keeps yours up to date. Just make sure you don’t try to decipher the results that are posted on the site on your own.

“There is no interpretation of what the results mean, just raw data,” explained Inna Husain, a Chicago-based otolaryngologist. “So important to discuss significance of results with your physician.”

Check with your state’s health department for vaccination records

You might also be curious about what immunizations you’ve had, haven’t received or need an update on ― and unsure where to find that information. Asking your former caregivers is a good place to start, but sometimes that’s not always an option. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, some state health departments keep registries that include adult and children’s vaccine records.

If you’re still not able to track down what shots you’ve had, your doctor may be able to perform blood tests to see what immunizations are in your system. They can help create a specific vaccine plan from there. Just make sure to get them recorded so you know for the future.

Finally, reach out to your old doctors

It’s not ideal, but you can call up every single place you’ve visited yourself. Federal law does entitle you to copies of your medical records.

“Under the federal HIPAA privacy rule, patients have the right to access or obtain paper or electronic copies of their health records,” Segal said. “These records include medical test results, doctor’s notes, lab reports and even billing information.”

This will potentially involve phone calls, faxes and letters that include information like your Social Security number, dates of visits and signatures. Usually a health care provider will tell you what details you must provide. Sometimes there may be a small fee associated with certain requests, depending on the provider, Husain said.

“Unfortunately, some health systems will only provide it in paper form versus a digital copy,” Burrell added, noting that it can also often take up to 30 days to receive some information. “Health systems are not allowed to charge you for the record, but some hospitals charge a ‘printing fee’ of around 25 cents [per page] that can certainly add up.”

This all, of course, can be taxing. Especially when you’re in the midst of dealing with a medical diagnosis.

“At a time when I felt debilitated, when I was still adjusting to a new reality from my diagnosis, I had to fill out endless record request forms, wait in record request lines, call to make sure all my information had been faxed on time and then remember to bring every note, every lab report, every X-ray to my next appointment,” Leviner said.

But now once you gather the information, there are tools to keep it stored in one place for easy access. T hanks to advances in technology (like apps and portals) and a greater focus on this issue, streamlined record access is more possible than ever.

Experts say you can expect to see even more developments in this market in the coming months and years. Many physicians want more people feel like they have control over their own health history and information.

“Our goal is for patients to feel empowered in their health. Data accessibility plays a critical role in ensuring this,” said Jonathan Slotkin, a neurosurgeon at Geisinger Health in Pennsylvania. “Recent innovations have given patients much greater control of their information and what they choose to do with it.”

History shouldn&rsquot be a mystery.

By studying your own history, you can better understand the mistakes you've made and how you attracted them to yourself in the first place. This will help raise your awareness. Heightened awareness can prevent you from making the same mistakes over and over, so you don't have to pay the &ldquodummy tax&rdquo more than once.

You mustn&rsquot make your mistakes into a habit rather make a habit of analyzing your mistakes.

Besides studying your own background, also use history as a mentor by studying individuals who are in a position you want to be in or that have situational knowledge that you'd like to possess. Identify one or more successful people, living or dead, whose careers are attractive to you. Then research how their lives have unfolded. In doing this, you can learn from their journey, as well.

Three of my most influential mentors are Dr. Wayne Dyer, Teddy Roosevelt and Napoleon Hill. While I've never met them, just by having studied their histories and their work, I can access the strategies and principles that made them successful. I can also avoid falling into the same traps that they did, early on in their lives, simply by raising my awareness.

Now, with the advent of cellphones and laptops, accessing history is a snap. Applying history to your own life is the more difficult step.

While You Are Ringing In The Summer, Don't Forget To Remember The Importance Of What We Have Off For.

Home of the free because of the brave.

"The American flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies from the last breath of each solider who died protecting it."

On this present day in America, we currently have over 1.4 million brave men and women actively listed in the armed forces to protect and serve our country.

Currently there is an increased rate of 2.4 million retiree's from the US military

Approximately, there has been over 3.4 million deaths of soldiers fighting in wars.

Every single year, everyone look's forward to Memorial Day Weekend, a weekend where beaches become overcrowded, people fire up them grills for a fun sunny BBQ, simply an increase of summer activities, as a "pre-game" before summer begins.

Many American's have forgot the true definition of why we have the privilege to celebrate Memorial Day.

In simple terms, Memorial Day is a day to pause, remember, reflect and honor the fallen who died protecting and serving for everything we are free to do today.

Thank you for stepping forward, when most would have stepped backwards.

Thank you for the times you missed with your families, in order to protect mine.

Thank you for involving yourself, knowing that you had to rely on faith and the prayers of others for your own protection.

Thank you for being so selfless, and putting your life on the line to protect others, even though you didn't know them at all.

Thank you for toughing it out, and being a volunteer to represent us.

Thank you for your dedication and diligence.

Without you, we wouldn't have the freedom we are granted now.

I pray you never get handed that folded flag. The flag is folded to represent the original thirteen colonies of the United States. Each fold carries its own meaning. According to the description, some folds symbolize freedom, life, or pay tribute to mothers, fathers, and children of those who serve in the Armed Forces.

As long as you live, continuously pray for those families who get handed that flag as someone just lost a mother, husband, daughter, son, father, wife, or a friend. Every person means something to someone.

Most Americans have never fought in a war. They've never laced up their boots and went into combat. They didn't have to worry about surviving until the next day as gunfire went off around them. Most Americans don't know what that experience is like.

However, some Americans do as they fight for our country every day. We need to thank and remember these Americans because they fight for our country while the rest of us stay safe back home and away from the war zone.

Never take for granted that you are here because someone fought for you to be here and never forget the people who died because they gave that right to you.

So, as you are out celebrating this weekend, drink to those who aren't with us today and don't forget the true definition of why we celebrate Memorial Day every year.

"…And if words cannot repay the debt we owe these men, surely with our actions we must strive to keep faith with them and with the vision that led them to battle and to final sacrifice."


Pointed toe shoes ruined medieval feet: study

Don’t know much about history.

A new survey found that Americans have an abysmal knowledge of the nation’s history and a majority of residents in only one state, Vermont, could pass a citizenship test.

The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation surveyed 41,000 Americans in all 50 states and Washington, DC, the organization said Friday.

Most disturbingly, the results show that only 27 percent of those under the age of 45 across the country demonstrate a basic knowledge of American history. And only four in 10 Americans passed the exam.

Even in the Green Mountain State, the pass rate was just 53 percent.

“Unfortunately, the Woodrow Wilson Foundation has validated what studies have shown for a century: Americans don’t possess the history knowledge they need to be informed and engaged citizens,” foundation president Arthur Levine said in a statement.

New York came in 32nd place with a 40 percent pass rate.

Louisiana residents demonstrated the least knowledge of their country’s history, with just 27 percent making the cut to pass.

Wyoming, South Dakota, Montana and Virginia followed Vermont at the top of the list, while Kentucky, Arkansas, Alabama and Mississippi were just above Louisiana.

The study also revealed that only 15 percent of American adults were able to correctly note the year the US Constitution was written — 1787 — and a mere 25 percent could correctly state that the Constitution has 27 amendments.

A quarter of survey-takers were unaware that freedom of speech was guaranteed under the First Amendment — and 57 percent did not know that Woodrow Wilson was president during World War I.

The distressing results show that “American history education is not working, as students are asked to memorize dates, events and leaders, which the poll results shows are not retained in adulthood,” Levine said.

“Based on our research, this is not an issue of whether high school history teachers are adequately prepared or whether kids study American history in school,” he added. “The answer to both questions is yes. This is an issue of how we teach American history. Now it is too often made boring and robbed of its capacity to make sense of a chaotic present and inchoate future.”
