Where the heck is that? I’m a Knoxville native, a UT grad and an employee, and I’ve never seen it.
Wait, Guam is liberated now? Do we exchange ambassadors?
Guam was liberated from the Japanese in the second battle of guam on July 21, 1944. It had been a possession of the U.S. since it was ceded from Spain at the end of the Spanish American war in 1898 and is now a U.S. territory .
Another war animal monument. On Anzac day, people leave apples.
It depresses me greatly that we human types drag representatives of other species into our destructive messes. That these other animals–dogs and horses, mostly–acquit themselves bravely and nobly doesn’t excuse our misdeed.
Because, under normal circumstances, hoofed mammals and canines live in perfect harmony.
Am I the only one who saw War Horse and thought that in real life Joey would have been eaten by 1917?
