Anyone know who went to the hospital?

I think that’s a good signing. our wr room has better depth than last year, and hopefully the new additions will exceed expectations this year unlike last year

I love it. It’s good depth for a veteran of this offense. I think he pushes out someone else.

In last night’s OT there was discussion about what kind of Chiefs football analysis might be articled here. One approach could be by position group: depth and projected starters then as the season proceeds stuff like snap counts, roles and assignments. performance evaluations. This all might be done as a group effort with individuals working on a specific position group.

When I was in high school our history teacher assigned us to interview wwII vets and make a report. I talked with a neighbor of ours. once he got going, it was amazing. he told how they had to fly in behind the lines in these one time use gliders and basically crash land. Then they had these “crickets” (like came with the old Jeopardy game) to try and locate each other so they could get their squad together to continue on their mission.

If you’re ever in eastern Kansas, the Dwight D. Eisenhower Museum and Presidential Library has a pretty cool exhibit on D-Day. I heard somewhere that, in an attempt to confuse the German forces, the Allies dropped what were in essence speakers, full of the sounds of yelling and small-arms fire; in so doing, they were able to draw away some of the German forces.

The museum is well worth visiting.

Geographically, Abilene might be Eastern KS, but 90% of Kansans live within 50 miles of MO or in Wichita. Still very much worth the visit

Reminds me of a funny story from when I was in the service.

We were doing a training exercise and were using a “challenge and password” system for security. Each day, we’d get at least one new set of 2 words. When challenging, you had to say a sentence that contained the word, along with other words so the actual words weren’t as easy to figure out.

On one particular day, the words were BOOTLACE and TYPEWRITER.

One friend of mine was driving on and off our camp all day. The guard would stop him each time and challenge him.

“I tied my BOOTLACE in a knot this morning when I was polishing my boots before breakfast.”

The friend got fed up after about 10 times…

“If you don’t stop telling me about your bootlace, I’m going to shove my TYPEWRITER up your ass!”

Yes, and other flags. NA would do well to repair/strengthen ties w/ European allies.

Yes of course, we can’t forget the contributions of Canada and ANZ to the landings.

My grandmother had an uncle who was part of the D-Day invasion. From what I have been able to gather from military records (which isn’t much, unfortunately), is he survived the assault on the beach, but would be killed about a month later. What we do know for certain is that he is buried at the Normandy American cemetery. I’m hoping to be able to visit him someday.

There was a man who worked at the grocery store in my hometown who had taken part in the landings. Unfortunately he passed when I was about 8, so I didn’t get to know him well or talk to him about the landings (not that I would have understood the significance anyway).

According to one eye witness the whole thing was certain on D+3. That eye witness being my Dad and that was the day he got off the landing craft.
Of course – one has to account for involvement bias in evaluating that statement 🙂
