US soldiers and sailors involved in WWll?
Raymond Willard Tinker of the 4786th company was one man in the army during the 2 World War. I would like to know more about this man and the men that served with him to share stories with his grandchildren and great grandchildren. This information is a great history lesson. I believe anyone who serves their country should be remembered by others. I thank God for every single person and the sacrifices they made and are making for me and my families FREEDOM!
What is the position of anti imperialist league toward the us soldiers serving in the expansionist war?
Your questions can be answered after you clarify them a bit. 1. What "Imperialist League"? 2. US Soldiers? This indicates that NO naval units are involved and NO aircraft are involved; as Airmen and Sailors are not soldiers. It also indicates that NO US Marines are involved. This must strictly be a US Army operation. 3. What "expansionist war"? Is the US trying to obtain more over-seas territory, like in the war against Spain in…
How many us navy sailors and army soldiers and pilots did America lose in the battle of pearl harbor?
The "Mayaguez Incident" (May 1975) is considered the last act of the Vietnam War, even though it occurred one month after the North overran the South (April 1975). No US Soldiers were involved with the "Mayaguez", the only casualties were US Marines, US Sailors, and US Airmen; approximately 40 killed.
Calling a "sailor" a "soldier" is like calling all doctors "surgeons." They were different occupations in WWII & Vietnam. During the Vietnam War US Soldiers belonged to the US Army; US Marines belonged to the US Marine Corps, US Airmen were part of the US Air Force, US Coast Guardsmen were members of the USCG, and men of the US Navy were called US Sailors. Approximately 174,000 US Sailors served in the Viet War.
US Marines & US Sailors got there by ships. US Soldiers originally deployed with their whole units, thus they too went to South Vietnam by ship. After the USA units were in place (in country) then replacements usually arrived by chartered civilian airliners (like TWA, Flying Tiger Airlines, Braniff, etc.). US Marines/Sailors continued to deploy via ocean going vessels.
North Vietnamese fighting men (Airmen, Soldiers, and Sailors) probably were promised a North Vietnamese victory. South Vietnamese fighting men (Airmen, Marines, Soldiers, and Sailors) were probably promised the US would always be there when they were needed. US, Australian, New Zealand, Philippine, South Korean, and Thai fighting men (Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, and Sailors) were told all they had to do was one tour (12 months) then they could go home; and that's about all these…
Traditionally, US Coast Guardsmen were US Coast Guardsmen; even during times of war, when they become part of the US Navy. US Sailors are (or were) men of the United States Navy. US Soldiers were men of the United States Army. The gender neutral term "member" might be used today; such as US Coast Guardmember.
The term should be US military personnel or US Service members, as there are US Sailors, US Marines, US Air Force personnel, as well as US Soldiers fighting the "Global War on Terrorism." Currently, the 5,000 mark is generally believed to be the number of fallen US Servicemembers during this global war on terrorism.
Seeing as the USA didn't enter the war until the last month of 1941, after the Pearl Harbour attack on December 7th of that year, the number of US SOLDIERS killed in 1941, will be quite small. Now if you ask about US Sailors killed, the number will be higher, as the Japanese attacked US NAVY ships and dockyards on December 7th, primarily. You do know the difference between sailors and soldiers, don't you? After…
