AS IT WAS: THE DIARY OF A YOUNG BOY WHO BECAME A MARINE

by Daniel Dowell

Dad and I sat on that couch for most of the afternoon. A conversation that I had expected to last only a few minutes, covering selected memories of his service years, actually began on the morning of December 7, 1941, and ended with his return from the Pacific campaign to his boyhood home in Ojai, California.

Between lunch and dinner that cold day in Bieber, California, I learned more about my dad than I had ever known in stolen summers that spanned over fifty years. I was thrilled beyond belief to have had this opportunity, until I suddenly realized that I was the only one who would ever really know the details he had just shared.

Shells exploded in my ears and smoke burned my eyes, as I sat listening to Dad recount his experiences so long ago. The heat from flamethrowers singed my arms and the moans of the dying wrenched my heart. I hung on every word he spoke. And throughout that afternoon, Dad’s countenance never changed as he moved from the horrors of battle to the adventures and comedic episodes of mainland Japan occupation. Once a Marine, always a Marine.

What we created was not only a living memory of his existence, but also a cornerstone of pride for me, my children, and my children’s children yet to come.

In these following pages, I have reported Dad’s experiences as he remembered them. I have taken the liberty to correct spelling, verb tenses, and punctuation, because I had always encouraged Dad to simply get his words on paper and forget about errors while he recreated his story night after night.

Sometimes he only shared a few sentences during nightly phone conversations, while other times he would read to me several pages in machine gun cadence. But whether a few words, paragraphs, or pages, the pride was always evident in his voice. I often ended these calls with a random tear streaming down my face.

As you read these following pages, I would urge you to consider the specific details of recollection, as well as the emotions that each of these memories creates.

Dad was eighty years old when he wrote the recollections of a sixteen year old high school sophomore. He was also eighty years old when he recounted with unbelievable detail his experiences in the war.

Be amazed by his service, but also be moved by his valued and detailed memories. They all made the man â?¦

It is my strongest desire to share this pride with you and it is my most humble wish that these recollections let Floyd Dowell, Jr. live on in your hearts as he does in mine. Semper Fi, Dad.

Reborn

by Luis B Pozzolo

Born in South America in the middle of the chaos of domestic terrorism, I grew up under a Dictatorial regime. I witnessed the rebirth of democracy and its sunset as it was brutally transformed into socialism. I was inspired to live free by my father who as a political leader fought the totalitarian regimes from both sides, with the passion and dedication only exhibited by true patriots.

Walk with me as I start my journey on a humid cobblestone street in South America and finish in a dark cherry paneled court room in Kentucky.

We are living in times of confusion; we are facing the need for deep reflection, and restoring principles forgotten. I have no illusions these times are going to be easy. The path of Republics sometime grow narrow and history reminds us Republics do collapse when their citizen trade the constant vigil for a false security.

Travel thousands of miles with me into the past to relive the methodical, step by step process used to move a free people with the unalienable rights of self-governance into a state of government dependency in a matter of just a few decades.

On your way back to the present as you stand in the land of the free and the home of the brave, ask yourself if your trip through my past can bring insight into our future.



JUGGLING WITH JESUS FOR A BOB A DAY

by Peter Humphries

I was a target towing operator during the war and very much involved in the Spitfire Air to Air Training Program at the time and although not on operational front line flights, there were a few times we nearly didn’t make it back to base; I hope you find the following recollections entertaining and informative.

This is not a story about Heroics or Medals, (though I do know of Target Operators who had the odd leg ripped off), nor is it written by an army of historians and endless “know it all’s”, who were never even in the RAF. There are no, “Jolly good show Old Boys”.
You are about to read a story, a true story, exactly as remembered, without the Brandy and Cigar Boys as portrayed in some Books and Movies. This is a true story mainly about me and my life in the RAF as a tow target operator, flying in Fairey Battle and Martinet aircraft.
Our Spitfire Boys were the greatest young Kids, still teenagers mostly. Some became mates during the short duration of the courses, we had lots in common. We always had a lot to talk about and our job was to show them how to knock the 109s down, successfully. The title of this story came about when an American pilot from Eagle Squadron, paid X squadron a visit. He approached us and shook us all by the hand; the first thing he said was “are you the guys who juggle with Jesus for a bob a day”? He was very inquisitive and he wanted to know all the aspects of target towing. We kept him interested for about two hours and he went away a much wiser man. This was OUR Royal Air Force, as WE knew it, at Eshott in the heart of Northumberland.

Rousseau and Voltaire: The Lives of the Two Most Famous Intellectuals of the Enlightenment

by Charles River Editors

*Includes pictures

*Analyzes both men’s lives and most famous works

*Includes footnotes and a bibliography for further reading

*Includes a table of contents

“To hold a pen is to be at war.” – Voltaire

“Virtue is a state of war, and to live in it means one always has some battle to wage against oneself.” – Rousseau

The grand narrative of the Enlightenment, usually recounted and understood in terms of progress and modernity, generally appears as a simplified evolution from the trappings of superstition, feudalism, and everything “irrational” to a world more similar to today’s world. Alongside the Renaissance, the Enlightenment is credited for the transition to an adherence to reason, secularism, and promotion of values such as individual and collective freedom and liberty. At the heart of the movement in France was François-Marie Arouet, better known by the pen name Voltaire, whose voluminous writings advocated for greater liberalism, including the freedom of religion and the separation of church and state. In addition to the classic Candide, Voltaire was a biting polemic whose satirical attacks on the Catholic Church were among the fiercest of his day. He also understood the risks he was taking with these writings, at one point explaining, “It is dangerous to be right in matters where established men are wrong.”

The Enlightenment is looked upon fondly, and it serves to reinforce the notion that the present is superior to the past, but things did not change as rapidly or as completely as many believe. In fact, some recent historians have challenged the belief that the Enlightenment was responsible for the French Revolution, which is a vital issue when it comes to Voltaire. After all, Voltaire, as his contemporaries and as most of his modern readers know him, is widely regarded as the pinnacle of Enlightenment thought, the symbol of the era of reason, and the harbinger of modern values. In that regard, his work is often considered to be the backbone of the French Revolution, which began about a decade after his death. Voltaire was unquestionably monumental, but he was also an exceptional product of his age, and his writings can introduce readers to the broader picture of the Enlightenment as a sum of contrasting and varied forces, tendencies and events.

One of the towering figures of the age was Jean Jacques Rousseau, whose works were essential to the ideological developments of the 18th century. The prestige of French literature in the 18th century resides especially in its revolutionary character; while the writers of the previous century used to support the social order through their works and showed sympathy and even attempted to explain the political order of the time, in the 18th century, art, literature, philosophy and science all contribute actively and fiercely to the fight against the absolutist monarch and his regime. While this was a current manifesting all throughout Europe, there were differences in practice, especially between close countries (as was the case of England and France).

There are many books and articles published constantly on the life and works of Rousseau. What generated such an abundance of writings is the turbulent life he led and the courage and audacity he manifested while fighting the prejudices of the time and establishing his ideas firmly within the academic community. His life can best be described as a constant conflict, whether it was conflict with his wife, his employers, his colleagues and even his friends.

Rousseau and Voltaire examines the lives and works of the Enlightenment’s most famous thinkers. Along with pictures of important people, places, and events, you will learn about Rousseau like never before, in no time at all.
