    By all accounts Ted Williams was as phenomenally gifted as a Marine pilot as he was as a hitter. Williams not only served in World War II but also in the Korean War. He missed three complete seasons with the Red Sox (1943, ‘44, ‘45) and the majority of two others (1952, ‘53). Williams flew 39 combat missions and never expressed regret that his military service had kept him away from the game.

    The United States Marine Corps in Belleau Wood, France.

"An Englishman writing for ‘THE SPECTATOR’ encountered a pride of U.S. Marines and found them to be quite a curiosity:

"The Marines have two salient characteristics: their ability to make something out of nothing and to do it quickly, results in their establishing themselves at once and with a minimum of damage to surroundings; and, since they bring ashore with them the sea tradition of cleanliness and order, they are, when not the first to fight, the first to clean…The Marines are both ‘shore cops’ and stevedores. ‘But only for a little while,’ they one and all assure you, even the officers: 
‘The Brass Hats are sure to let us fight soon.’” oldmagazinearticles.com

    Schindler’s list was the brainchild of Oskar Schindler, a German industrialist during World War II who spared over one thousand Jews from Nazi imprisonment. The list itself was compiled by Schindler’s accountant Itzhak Stern, and it contains the names of 801 Jewish males who Schindler hired to work in his factories.
