This ANZAC Day please remember;
We commemorate ANZAC Day, it is not celebrate. Please don’t say “Happy Anzac Day” it’s a wake. People have passed away for us to have this freedom we hold so dear.
Today marks the 103rd anniversary of the landing of ANZAC Soldiers, Sailors and Medical personnel on Gallipoli.
It's a bugle and not a trumpet and the Last Post is sounded, not played.
Not every serviceman/woman was a "soldier", some were Sailors, Airmen and Nursing Sisters too. Please take the time to ascertain what service each military person served in and use the correct terminology, it does mean a lot!
Please don't even try to draw parallels between civilians and veterans and military personnel past or present….after all veterans have and military personnel continue to put their lives in the harm’s way to protect their fellow service personnel, flag and Country.
To all of my Military friends and family whether still serving or not, thank you for what you have and will do to keep your country safe, please stay safe, enjoy your day, be proud of what you have accomplished and don't let anyone rain on your parade.
Lest We Forget
The Führer's Last Days
April 24, 1945 "I... I must return to my study..." Said the Führer, excusing himself from the table. "I.. I will be back shortly." He got up and left the dinner table behind which sat Goebbels with his family.
The Führer walked out of the dining room and headed for his study just down the hall, once he entered, he closed the door shut and looked around.
Here was a bed which was made in a woodshop in Berlin, here was a painting from Poland that he had been gifted early in the war, here, on his desk were expensive pens from France; also a gift and in his closet hung an abundance of hand made and presicely tailored suits. And right across from him, centered perfectly on the wall hung a painted portait of himself that was flanked by two triangular, red flags bearing the black tilted swastika in a white circle.
"All this.." Thought Hitler as he looked over his study with all the gifts and trophies he has collected over the years, "All this was possible because of what I've done to my country... I brought it out of poverty, brought it back to greatness. And now... Now the last bits of a great Germany are collapsing, with the Soviets closing in on the Reichstag with every hour." He sighed sadly and walked over to his bed and sat down. "It's over." The Führer said to himself out loud. "It's over. The Third Reich is OVER!" He yelled and then he ripped off the silver eagle holding patch from his sleeve and threw it across the room. He then put his head between his hands and quietly sobbed. "All that I've ever dreamed of, all that I have committed years to is now all over! Berlin is being torn apart, my armies are or have deserted me, I can't trust anyone and the war is over. It's over"
Hitler looked up at the ceiling and listened to the Soviet bombs as they rained onto the streets of Berlin. A few dried flakes of gray paint fell off from the ceiling and floated down to the crippled Führer's feet.
"The war may be over, Berlin may have been taken. But Germany will fight on."
I've been waging battles with #nostalgia and #resentment over this place for years. Not many know this but I actually moved from Ontario to Winnipeg in 1999. I use to think #Petawawa was home because home is whatever PMQ they order you to. It took 10 years for my restless #armybrat roots to slowly sink in. It felt like I had history here. Red rivers and flat feet. It felt like home. Finally. I remember praying every year it wouldn't come... but in familiar #military tradition of putting your life and memories in a box and having no protest, we were posted. We were going to Edmonton, which is actually where I was born and people reminded me that as if it was conforting to return to a birth place where I had no roots, no history, no memories, and most importantly, no pegheads. It took a long time to forgive that.
This picture is old. This house is older. These conflicting feelings are adolescent, but I don't think I'll ever resolve the void that was left in my peg heart when we left Winnipeg. I never forgave the military for plotting my family across the country and expecting it feel whole.
What does competency and success look like to you? Just after going through the sighting in process I sent these rounds. While not in rapid succession these are shots that I’m happy with at 100 yards under mild wind conditions. Now it’s time to ring some steel!
I had a great deal to smile about my senior year 😁
While all my friends were freaking out trying to figure out what college they were going to go to, how they were going to pay for it, and what they were going to study, I already had a plan in place.
Now fast forward about 5 years later.
I am a couple of credits shy of obtaining my bachelor's degree(debt free), all while obtaining a plethora of experience and knowledge as an Intelligence Professional.
I've been blessed to work and perform my duties half way around the world twice, and work all over the United States for a many different reasons.
None of which would of been possible if I didn't earn the title of United States Marine. #highschool#senior#college#military#usmc#marinecorps#deployment#warrior#job#career#thefewtheproud#marines
Body type: murvy (muscles + curves)
I’ve been under weight. I’ve been overweight. I’ve had a runner’s body and a CrossFit body. I’ve had a shitty diet and a very strict diet. My body has changed and adapted with my lifestyle and I’m always trying to love it and accept it for what it is at that time. I’ll admit, sometimes it’s hard with the impossible standards society sets that sometimes I feel the need to meet. Big boobs, big butt, small waist.....ya okay 🤦🏻♀️ cool but not happening. Even though I may be a bit thicker now than normal (I’m sucking in like crazy 😂) I’m really learning to embrace me....all of me. I’m actually happier with my lifestyle than I’ve been in a really long time. I have a great relationship with food and I don’t beat myself when I don’t make it to the gym (thank you @mblacutt for tons of help with that!). I have the “I workout but love donuts” body 😂 but I’m loving it. All I can do is love my body throughout all the changes since it’s allowed me to do some incredible things 💕
Early morning to attend Melbourne Dawn Service Thank to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedrom. To those mates still deployed overseas, we are all thinking of you today, come home safe.

This traditional long sleeved t-shirt was know as ‘Telnyashka’ in Russian and was given to the navy forces, starting from the 20th century.
After the Second World War, captain Vasily Mergelov was appointed to modernize the uniforms of the airborne units so he decided to introduce the Telnyashkas.
