News radio 930 WB EN yeah it's hard to find anything we agree on today. Politics sports it doesn't matter whether. The environment. Veterans it doesn't matter your politics. You know it's it doesn't matter your ethnicity your sexuality. You serve. Your on the good team here on the good side and we've been. It's Tom Bauerle everybody who served. Gets recognized everybody who's heard the matter where is her. When you serve with you in a logistical or support their role in the United States stateside. You know the United States or. Whether you were overseas in the thick of it. It is for all veterans and David Bell media and the and the discipline more and I think it's great for I think the veterans are the best neighbors you get. It's our way and Olivia for those who don't know David Bell via. My noteworthy co host there is a decorated the rock war veteran wrote a book about it house to house the book is being made it to a movie. By Iran or on news radio 930 WD. How are. I don't know what the hell goes out there's mics which it's like I hit it and talking to goes off. I give up by eight I surrender anyway it's our hourly ability of news radio 930 WBE and so anyway we were actually off they're talking about. You know this is Veteran's Day we're taking calls about the veterans do you wanna give a shout but. David we're talking about the Edmund FitzGerald and you actually were born the same day be Edmund FitzGerald. Went to the bottom of Lake Superior with all 29 hands. And that we're talking about the various theories that have been put forth as to why it went down. United states Coast Guard report at one idea the lake carriers association had a different idea. But we do know that it was a obviously lethal for all on board. And the waters of superior are so cold I've received the videotape and it's never. Again the show up on lively group giving. But supposedly few years ago like within the last five to seven years they sent one of the submersible down unmanned. Device down. To a photograph and videotape beat FitzGerald and they actually did see some of the crew. And apparently the water is so cold down there that it's like being in a freeze. So they look today as they would have looked on this date in 1975. And it's just it's spooky and that day so I was born about the Children's Hospital. And my father always would tell me that I was born I was such in just a ridiculously windy day and it was just horrible horrible and I never put those two things together. I because I'm far too narcissistic to think of anyone movements but but to think that that wind and then the what you described the Edmund FitzGerald going down. I'd original we think of the perfect storm. And and that whole story. It it seems to me and again there is controversy over this and if you think the Warren commission and the conspiracy theory hey you know one of them got to be true if you get the same thing with with a lot of a lot of ship wrecks including the Edmund FitzGerald and you know to be the most logical theory is that the hatch covers. Got loosened because of the beating the FitzGerald had been taking what you get a little bit of water in to the hatches and into the cargo hold. It totally destabilize as the vessel. And what happened I think is it just went lower and lower and lower into the water okay. And it's that's such a slower rate that nobody really knew what. What was happening. And then it hit a wave. And it it. Submarine. And all that water hole would've rushed to the front of the vessel you know all would have gone forward to the bow. And those guys were probably a hundred feet down debris even knew that there was a problem. We don't wanna buy Hewitt and mentioned earlier about these kamikaze. Man and controlled cherry blossom. Comic out these. And someone I just sent us. A YouTube video of a computer generated of how it went down and put our FaceBook is really fascinating. But these things are called cherry blossom because like the cherry blossom they never return to the tree and there are literally you know cruise missiles. That work kamikaze mission. Fascinating stuff so. Pay the a listener always comes through to the rescue all. But it sure is late in the war. Also ahead the firsts. Air to surface missiles. As we would know them now almost like they're either straighten. There are mostly radio control strained from guided. Missiles they use to try to sink ships with in the latter part of the Second World War like a precursor to the tow missile yes you know optical low wire that sent which is the weirdest thing in the world because. I don't care what job you have. There's they used to be a job in the army that you were 88 told missile specialist on the back of a humvee and I always thought the most. The bravest person in the world. Is someone who controls that wire for 2000 meters while a T 72 tanks slowly traverse their risk of fires said you mean. You've got to do is beat the steely eyed missile man and be able to hold that. You've been shot it. All right and you know obviously you you've been at some intense combat situations and that we are commemorating veterans day today. And there's a show that it's on Netflix and it it's one of the best real life depictions of a World War I that I've ever seen it's called our world war all you are our world war. And that's based on real witness accounts in some cases at the end of the episode you'll actually hear the soldiers depicted in the what you are seeing is the recreated account describing what happened to them. Our world war on Netflix. Just watch season one does what what season three episodes you're gonna be hooked after the first thirty minutes of the first one and you watch it over and over again. You know World War II is a very sexy were a lot of people know a lot about world war two and somehow World War I which really was the defining force of the entire twentieth century gets overlooked in terms of its causes and you know how that war was fought in waged and won and eventually. Lost. 8030 authorities start at 3180616. WB. Each and David obviously we don't have any alive yet but are you blessed are fortunate enough ever to orbit in World War I veteran. I never know you know that's always 11 of the things that. I look back to that last image of the the civil war Gettysburg bets that all met together in that you know just to be beer or Steve 38 gas Andrea. And then the world war and that's all got together on anniversaries. And they're gone. And and tragically of World. War II guys that's what's gonna happen to the Korean War generators and and it you gotta you gotta just absorb it. Because if they're still you know where that's enough to tell these stories. I mean this is living history it's in our backyard. And it's not like you know show me someone who experienced in every major city of this country. A historical. I mean you don't have say they lived history there right now backyards and they've got so much at weird guy who. Who's uncle was Schwartz I mean that's a rate yet on an amazing amazing stuff well. Actually my migrate on actually late in her life was friends with a guy who was a World War I American doughboy. Veteran. And I had the pleasure talking with him you know I would have been like at 101112 years old whatever but I can always say that I talk to American doughboy veteran who was in the trenches of France. Back in 98 even better now do you talk about pilots and and their valor and he can you imagine a World War I. That is just I would get a jacket on and a scarf. I can give your engine birds spend your life in mud. Like months at a time in mud and then cold water and trench foot and then. Every time you bury somebody another compartment you kept to keep burying people of this mill because nothing ever stayed very. I have to lords are there every army division has what's called that every tip every big Italian company has what's called a mission essential task list. We call metal. And you know divisions eighteenth airborne corps Auburn job to do when it goes down and there's a war. And the first of tradition in Germany we were the trench clears. And there's a lot of Intel that there were trenches in Iraq we're getting ready clear those so weeks the army spent millions of dollars constructing trenches in Germany. Near the location of real trick is using World War II world war on models of what they look like. And we jumped in their life fired in trenches now General Petraeus when he was a commander in now. Kentucky Fort Campbell hit show our support but he got shot in the chest. David Petraeus dull yes he was shot in the chest do you mean a trench exercised its one of the most dangerous things we do in training because. Guys it's so chaotic. You have a wolf tailed guy that your lead guy you've got a big flag you're following him but you're putting machine gun fire right in front of that guy. You're putting machine gun fire right at the end of your tail guy. And your job is to keep everyone that trenches heads down and when you're in the trench a real mate you know trench to somebody. It is the most frustrating thing in the world rounds are ticked Actel. And your shoot against you still target you're not shooting back to you if your own fire that's so dangerous. When I hear trench to this day they hear is get up because that isn't really really tough environment to fight those guys. I mean forget the trench foot forget the disease when it really went down. I mean that is a survivability and often interrupted this day actually the first of it was a first Academy Award winning give movie of the year. The worst teams in all quiet on the western front. Those world no one's seen as. I'm not alone in thinking this and it people who were actually World War I veterans would say. They watched that movie and nobody has ever done a better job of showing what it was like for the World War I soldiers. That these scenes in that movie all quiet on the western front with those who wears a everybody else it is.

Veterans a day tomorrow partly sunny and cold 37 Sunday cloudy and chilly could see some light rain and wet snow in the afternoon and 42. Will be the high Sunday's 22 right now feels like twelve. Alan Harris is in the state of shocked that were actually on time Alan. A case not a good there he's training he's he's got the wrong switch and so. We'll have an extra report coming up at 531 tell those guys depicts the switch in the extra it is a Veteran's Day twenty minutes after five news radio 930 WBE. And the we go back to the idea of phone calls right now this is he who is an Everest you. So our veterans day you can give a shout out to your better. I'm retired EP. And I was in the movie score at Tora Tora. And you were in the movies to our Tora Tora. Yeah I'll just like this happening right place right time and I mean no laureate well. Public you don't just feel awesome interview not just lead off the phone call saying I was in the movie Tora Tora Bora without going further because I've seen that will be like if you're sixty or more times it is an amazing movie tell us how that happened. Well that's that I and others in the in the navy at the time your end also French horn player in. They re using people in this circus you know so in the movie. And. Where were you one of the musicians doing the star spangled banner. Okay you're never okay. Look if you wanna talk about something really weird I was just thinking about the at CU the yesterday. Where there on the deck amateur and how should have before. Hugh. Not a I met someone else that had the same story that truly crazy they took a bunch of you know and by. They do the same thing for Pearl Harbor the 22 temperature division is all over Pearl Harbor and they they take active duty guys all the time and you know they know job they know what they're doing but. That's really cool I'm just thinking about the scene yesterday those are you you're actually playing the French born on the deck. Or it is that really cool okay that desperate I would like to just applaud you for that alone the movie but. Obviously it's better Tuesday's so you're talking about some real life but I heroics is well. Yeah. And it's a funny story on the if you got to respect and. There's. You know. When you are going to servers and now are there any it and and I got in naval air station and we were picking up cigarette butt smallest cannot stop. And they called us all over and sit OK guys. Listen you sit around here you're greater or you're gonna start. And it turns out what have we got personal sensitive. And he had belies crystal ball we mean music ready to you got a good or not. And you don't carry goods you're gonna make it. Yeah and so that that was the crux of that. That's pretty awesome you know it's funny that we. You know that that movie is is so iconic. Honestly I don't know of bomb. I'm trying to think was that what you was out at 81. A Tora Tora Tora that was I wanna see late sixties early seventies. And I just like I have a right to a secure our creator quite. I'm thinking of a big red one I'm thinking of the one Luke Scott Walker's and I enormity. Yes so so that that time frame and you're at the right place at the right time and you know how people were in in. The natural member that was filmed right here it. In buffalo so we have about a lot of Baxter is in the listening audience that have been in I think toward toward towards one of the most iconic War Films. And a very you know at the time taking the point of view it was a real popular when you if you would've thought of doing a movie on 9/11 ten years after. Yeah in 2011 from the terrorist point of view. You're out of lol I don't know how that would default. When you look at the credits at the end of Tora Tora Tora at what I flat remarkable about this phone call Hugh I'm not exaggerating. I watch the movie actually watched it last week during one of my days off footballer with the laryngitis. Efforts summaries of last night probably because veterans day is today. I was thinking of the scene on the deck. Where the the band master the band leader says actually cute and then you guys started to play and then the day of the attack how it had to be speeded up as the bombs started to drop. They'll notice. Yesterday my thought was caught at those guys even have in them to finish that National Anthem because. Penalty why there's a story in the news yesterday about the NAACP. Wanted to nationally at the band as racist and I started thinking about what I just seen in Tora Tora Tora last week. So for the French foreign player in that movie studio just thinking about that seat your tunes in just a bit of dirt. But I appreciate secured an answer. That there was Alou went to school of music in a Russian naval air station there and. Which candidate and stay. There's many since Iran theory you're gonna blow you gotta suck. AstraZeneca and extra meaning now lost and now for the guy that's open to any and we were left for the. Yeah well. If it's a great story. You and we're glad you called it thank you very much for your service all its though. All right good good stuff David it's a flight deck that I just I I find both rewarding the Sarah bitterness and just plain weird when I think about. The odds against a guy who is in machine I was just thinking about yesterday from one of that is pretty cool. It is at 26 minutes after five at news radio 930 WB and it is hourly and albeit better Wednesday just one line open told early they go fast. If you wanna get a shot up to the veteran in your life or tell us about your own experience as a veteran. Was it overall good a positive thing which recommend or which are run from a news rating of thirty. I think Tora Tora Tora. It is our veterans day and this is hourly and television and news radio 930 WBE. And so we spent most of the break here looking through. Combat footage the real life combat footage from world war two and some of human unnoticed but. A few years back. The Japanese archives actually were gone through and actually released. High Def. Color footage. From Japan. Of the attack on Pearl Harbor which is absolutely. Stunning obviously tragic for our guys. But stunning. Nonetheless and it does skew view. Very interest in view. The other side of Pearl Harbor element knowing that. Our guys were down there are totally unsuspecting. As the attack got under way and of course. Many of them trapped in and died in the Arizona which is one of her great national monuments. If it does skew view it does give you additional perspective of something else the National Park Service develop a big fan of the National Park Service you know whenever anybody says boycott you know so much about the battle of Gettysburg. I laughed because the people who really know the battle of Gettysburg. Are the National Park Service people who work at Gettysburg. They know or in one fingernail of their body about the battle that I will in a lifetime of study I mean they pretty much get accompanied by a company what. Every regiment was doing and what time the regiment was doing it during the battle. And National Park Service. Actually got a hold of some American footage of up Pearl Harbor member of the guy who just went down parole hardly was it mr. so open. Got a movie Cameron and not super but he he went down Pearl Harbor Sunday morning and he's just innocently shooting pictures and he actually gets the attack. On the movie what they did the National Park Service digitize that will be. In two high debt. And it is so high definition that you can actually see the waves building and then lapping against the shoreline. After the explosion of the Arizona you can actually seemed to ripples of that X. It's a really in and to think that this was you know whatever film millimeter they shot and they were able to kind of put through same process modern films go through its high that it's 1080 it's incredible if it is actually Victor Rodriguez from National Park Service is is the guy who knows the most about that a correspondent with him a few years back now it was a hot air balloon that filmed and teach them and I was able to. You know here's the thing. Yeah what erratically is I know there's only one photo of actual combat during the civil war. You all you basically see is the yeah you see the flawed to battle for the most part. But when I think of what they could have done with a camera be able food during that battle. A lot of opportunities to preserve history were lost but they had other priorities undermine them like all staying alive if you if you. Noted the down to DC in the archives and went out there are a lot of photos or Brady to a post battle debt. A lot of people haven't seen and they're very graphic and of course that the process of taking pictures took so long and you know social majority of the photos we have that era. Our you know set up or their right even reverie leads one of the last photos lead you can see the little. Stand that there are holding his back up Oreo united being so it was a long process just to Stanford. They would actually have head cradles you can track your head back against the cradle. There is yeah it would racquet into the weeds here well this is stuff that anybody whose interest and and veterans is going to be interested in knowing but. The united states army. Military history institute David in Carlisle Pennsylvania poll by the league of Jim Thorpe were very close to a they have a lot of amazing information about the civil war and some of the photos and at the end of the civil war. You know what's really said David is a secretary of were so stupid girl lives with the things we throw out sometimes as a society were stupid. You know a lot of the Brady glass plates because in the old days deleted butcher pictures and instantly and there were literally a glass plates. A lot of them actually were sold in bulk at auction and used for people's greenhouses. All of those precious images were lost continue. Imagine like no I can't Wada. Hole who would even think that that would be a good idea that. I guess you're not thinking you know I'm thinking of anything but you need to greenhouse you started organized yeah or you wanna greenhouse because the people it's not a birds are to have one we have to have one tittle. For our golden egg guild encouragement. We look we just want to thank all of you veterans out there and David when you were when you read. Accounts for example of the battle of Gettysburg and I've read. Has schools account of the battle of Gettysburg hundreds of times from a Harvard forest nineteen tonight it is an ember can classic. It's actually available for free download online Haskell like Eddie Haskell. HK SK ELL when you read accounts from other soldiers of other battles whether it's Gettysburg. Whether it is. You know the Victorian war. Do you feel a kinship with those soldiers from other. Error is because although the weaponry. Was different the courage. And reflection blood is the same. You don't it's weird. It does take a while I mean that the thing that I find that special with a World War II generation you know everything was about. Going home and you know thanking you for your service but really I don't wanna hear anything about it it was. You know mobbed their parents the World War I generation they knew what combat was like. You know you've seen your lane do your job don't talk about it. And then. What I'm finding is now that the guys that we lost their children are now of age and the reaching out to listen FaceBook and they are saying hey. You with my dad when he died can you please tell me. What really happened tell me what he said tell them what kind of man he was. And it's this is the air this is the time that I've been avoiding. For ten years you I personally and I remind my friends are because you know now we're facing the reality. In war. You don't it's not real people die and in the army I'm used to people ship and off or going off to another station on the receive again you know it's one of those things where. You're constantly deployed you're used to relationships just ending in having good thoughts but you don't. Necessarily. Are gonna you know keep popping and right everyone every day because they have their lives you have your lives so it away when someone dies in battle. There's never really closure to and this is really the first time you have to address it I noticed with you know my grandfather in the Vietnam generation. It's like almost. At ten year period where you realize. How old your Guinean. That your children are now all of your age when you're thinking about doing something. And as a whole new meaning and hit you have your and that's the time that I bonded with. You know Vietnam guys were were two guys it's sort of like at this now area of our life is what we start to realize. We were so lucky we were so we were kids we had no idea what we were doing it wasn't real it was a video game until you get shot. And is crazy you look back at this part of our life and his times. You know that that's interesting David because even after the civil war ended in the 1865. And what you find is that it was the 1880s and the 1890s. Where the monuments started to drop the throw all over America because people you know were coming to terms with what the nation experienced with what they had experienced and they wanted to leave something behind and that's why you've got statues. You know in in the beautiful villages or towns along Lake Ontario all cut has a a wonderful and and prototypical civil war soldiers statue. And they usually you'll find they go back to roughly 1885 to 1895. That's when those guys decided we want to leave something behind. And by the way that the twentieth century version of the statue in the later part of the century became Hollywood.

Were after the American population it's OK we've we've established that this happened and that this was a lot of people sacrificed a lot.

There needs to be period but fortunately the veteran. You know ten years after your life. Oh I mean everything is now these kids are now teenagers. That the wives have married. And it's like you're the only vessel of you feel as if you are an ambassador of the people that the died and that you have to. You know sort of kissed the ring and go to all the family members and and and just make sure that they understand who their their husbands sons were because it's your responsibility.
