Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Going to great lengths

A man who risked his life to document the mistreatment of POWs at the hands of the Japanese during WWII died last week at the age of 89 in a Fort Worth suburb.

Terence Sumner Kirk was a former World War II prisoner of war who built a pinhole camera from cardboard scraps and used smuggled-in photo supplies to snap photographs of fellow malnourished Marines. He didn't tell anyone of his experiences for some 30 years because the War Department prohibited it. Finally, he decided his agreement surely was out of date and started telling his story and sharing his pictures.

This guy must have been one tough Marine. Rest in peace, sir. You honored your fellow men.
