Happy Birthday, Marine Corps! - Civil Air Patrol PA Squadron 1007

The Marine Corps was founded November 10, 1775 to serve as an infantry unit aboard naval vessels and was responsible for the
security of the ship and its crew by conducting offensive and
defensive combat during
boarding actions and defending the
ship’s officers from
mutiny. As of 2017, the USMC has around
182,000 active duty members and some 38,500 personnel in

NEWSPAPER GOT IT WRONG ON THIS DAY IN 1948

See the source image
Harry S. Truman on election night 1948, holding up a copy of the Chicago Daily
Tribune declaring ‘’Dewey Defeats Truman.”

 

On November 3, 1948, the Chicago Tribune jumps the gun and
mistakenly declares
New York Governor Thomas Dewey the
winner of his presidential race with incumbent
Harry S. Truman.

Many of America’s major newspapers had predicted a Dewey
victory early on in the campaign. A New York Times article
editorialized that “if Truman is nominated, he will be forced
to wage the loneliest campaign in recent history.” Perhaps
not surprisingly then, Truman chose not to use the press as
a vehicle for getting his message across. Instead, in July
1948, he embarked on an ambitious 22,000-mile “whistle
stop” railroad and automobile campaign tour.
