Robert Frederick Sink was born April 3, 1905, in Lexington, North Carolina. He joined the Army in 1924, graduating from West Point in 1927, and was commissioned as an infantry officer with the rank of 2nd Lt. In 1940 he was assigned to the 501st Parachute Infantry Regiment at Fort Benning. He was one of the 4% of the Army's paratroopers to qulaify as a master parachutist, and liked to celebrate his birthday each year by making a jump. In Jan, 1941, he was promoted to Major and given command of the 503rd PI Battalion. He was promoted to Lt Colonel on Feb, 1942, and made Colonel in Nov, 1942. In July 1942, he was made commander of the 506th PIR. He was 37 years old. He remained with the regiment throughout the war, even turning down at least 2 promotions to remain with the unit. He led the regiment in combat from Normandy to the end of the war when they returned to France. On August 12th, 1945, he was named assistant division commander of the 101st Airborne. He returned to the U.S in Dec, 1945. After WW2, Sink remained in the Army, participated in the Korean War, where he was awarded 3 silver star, 2 legion of merit, and 2 bronze star medals. He commanded several divisions in the US Army until he retired in 1961 as a Lt General. The man his troops affectionately called "Bourbon Bob" made his last big jump on Dec 13, 1965. Sink was portrayed by Captain Dale Dye in the Band of Brothers miniseries. Currahee and rest easy to the man who gave his utmost loyalty to the men of the 506th ♠♠ #bandofbrothers #easycompany #506thpir #parachuteinfantry #paratrooper #101stairbornedivision #screamingeagles #airborneinfantry #robertsink #daledye #ww2 #wwii #worldwar2 #war #koreanwar #history #ww2history #militaryhistory #rip

Still, Atari felt they needed to bring this personal computer into the 80’s.Therefore, the 1200XL was born.

Luisa Moreno was vital to organizing labor unions in the United States. Her first major role with activism was during the Great Depression, when she worked as a seamstress to support her family: she organized her fellow workers into a garment workers union. In 1935, Moreno was hired as a professional organizer by the American Federation of Labor (AFL). Soon after, she moved to Florida where she unionized African Americans and Latina cigar workers. Moreno also organized the pecan-shelling plants in San Antonio Texas and the cannery workers throughout California. While living in San Diego, she protested legislation that prevented Mexican Americans from working in jobs that would help the war effort for World War II. Luisa Moreno also advocated against police brutality. These actions created enemies and a prominent target for deportation, a movement by the United State government focused on forcibly deporting Mexican Americans. . . . #womenshistory #labormovement #womeninhistory #herstory #womensmovement #feminism #hispanic #equality #equalrights #laborrights #history #womeninactivism #activist #girlpower #girlboss #shepersisted

We did the hiking trail this morning from the center of Sintra all the way to Castelo dos Mouros. Beautiful long journey up the mountain side with a brisk wind that by the time we walked along the castle walls felt like it could have blown us right over. #castleofthemoors #castle #moorish #portugal #sintra #mountaintop #castelodosmouros #vertigo #heights #history #penapalace #penapalacesintra
#TBT -1958: Making the best of a long cold spell, skaters from #JHUAPL take to the ice! ❄️ According to APL News (from the time), the little-acre pond at the Lab turned into “a genuine evening and week-end recreation retreat,” with local children and Lab staff members coming out to enjoy the ice. Impromptu skating parties formed, complete with campfires and coffee! ⛸☃️ ☕️ #ItsColdOutside #LifeAtTheLab #photosfromhistory #winter #APL #physicslab #history #blackandwhitephotography #skating #iceskating #johnshopkins

🔶Which is your favorite?🔶 — The Thompson was designed don 1917-1920, and produced from 1921-1945. In all, around 2,000,000 of these weapons were created. The gun shot .45 APC rounds at differing speeds depending on the variant. The M1928 shot 600-725 RPM, the M1A1 shot around 700 RPM, and the M1919 shot 1,500 RPM. The effective firing range was 150m, and the feeding system included 4 types of magazines. There were two stick and 2 drum types, the latter of each being larger. The stick mags held 20 or 30 rounds, and the drum mags held 50 or 100 rounds, although throughout WW2, the stick mag would be used the most. Many allied nations used the Thompson through Lend-Lease including Great Britain, China, and the USSR, and so it saw pretty much every Front of the conflict. This picture is particularly special. German paratroopers, Hitler's elite, finding a captured Thompson and seeing for themselves what they have been fighting first hand. You will notice they are also carrying a machine gun. The British were in love with the Thompson, but in the early years, it was just too hard to get, and thus they had to create an alternative, mass produced submachine gun that is very similar to the American Grease Gun. It was known as the Sten Gun, and it featured a magazine coming out the side along with no wood apertures. The thing that made the Thompson so hard to make was the wooden features, so by taking this aspect of a submachine gun out of the equation the British found it much easier to producer their own. — #thompsonsubmachineguns #thompson #smg #submachinegun #gun #guns #tommygun #history #wwii #worldwarii #worldwar2 #secondworldwar #war #warfare #historynerd #historybuff #historyteacher #historyfacts #historyinpictures #historynerds #historybuffs #smgs #machinegun #rifle #assaultrifle #historylovers

One of those rare days at Eilean Donen Castle... No wind, rain or people
Some pictures I took at Bodie ghost town this past September. It once thrived as a gold mining community. Stories filled with nostalgia and resentment remain within the walls of the surviving structures. The town narrowly survived a large fire in 1892, but in 1932 a second fire would wipe out most of Bodie. World War II meant closure after former president Franklin D. Roosevelt shut down all nonessential gold mines in the United States. Iron mining was essential for the country to win the war. #bodie #ghostown #bodieghosttown #california #easternsierras #mono #monocounty #bodiehills #gold #goldrush #goldmining #ww2 #abandoned #roosevelt #west #westernhistory #wildwest #history #nostalgia #19century #20century #disaster #oldtown #mines #mining #yosemite

continue aesthetic modern: Impresionismo El impresionismo es un estilo pictórico que se origina en Francia, en la segunda mitad del siglo XIX. Se caracteriza por su persistente experimentación con la iluminación (similar al luminismo). El manejo de la luz se considera como un factor crucial para alcanzar belleza y balance en la pintura. Los cuadros impresionistas se construyen técnicamente a partir de manchas bastas de colores, las cuales actúan como puntos de una policromía más amplia, que es la obra en sí. Por ello, al observar los lienzos es necesario tomar cierta distancia, para que aparezcan las luces sombras y figuras. Los colores son puros, poco mezclados y se conjugan en formas de un naturalismo extremo. Las pautas que consuman esta tendencia son: el movimiento del paisaje, la naturalidad de las formas y la pureza. Lo que une a los genios de este tipo de pintura es la intención de reproducir escenas de la vida diaria de un modo creativo. En la mayoría de ocasiones se pueden distinguir claramente por su estética, imágenes desenfocadas y obras de apariencia inacabada. #aesthetictumblr #arte #estetica #tess #ensayo #facultyoffinearts #arthistory #history #instagramart #instagram #historiamoderna
