Lieutenant Jack Churchill is an English soldier known for fighting World War II equipped with a sword, a longbow, arrows and a claybeg. He once said, “Any officer who goes into action without his sword is improperly dressed.”
In May 1940, Churchill and his unit ambushed a German patrol near L’Epinette, France. Churchill gave the signal to attack by cutting down the enemy with his barbed arrows, becoming the only known British soldier to have felled an enemy with a longbow in the course of World War II.
Emma: Hey, what is the irony behind your Zombieland character being afraid of clowns?
Jesse: Um, I guess it’s that my mother was a professional clown. So that um, but it’s not actually ironic because… I’m terrified of her.
The Colbert Family! :D
A piece of art caused me to have an emotional reaction. Is that normal?
Well. This is giving me some feelings.
I was privileged to serve with a company of men who would make me far more than I would have been without them. And that losing one of those men had hurt so badly that I’d buried the thought of him, thinking that somehow that would help me avoid the pain.
Better, I’ve since learned, to turn into those waves and dive. So on that day in 2004 when I visited the cemetery where is Skip is buried, I looked at the white marble cross at that name - Sgt. Warren H. Muck - and thought of the kid who swam in the Niagara. The march to Atlanta. The smile. I knelt, placed flowers at the base of that cross. Prayed. All the things I’d done before when I’d come to see his grave. Only this time I did something different, long overdue, and hard but freeing.
I cried sixty years worth of tears.
