On Tuesday, Lucca, a 12-year-old German shepherd, received the prestigious Dickin Medal, the highest military decoration awarded for valor in the UK. She’s the first American K9 to receive it. While serving, she led over 400 missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, and found over 40 explosives. She lost her leg when an IED detonated as she was searching for weapons. Thank you for your sacrifice, Lucca.

Though Phoebe Chapple was recognised as a skilled doctor, the Australian government’s policies precluded her from military service. Undaunted, the Adelaide-born Chapple travelled to Britain in 1917 and joined the Royal Army Medical Corps, becoming one of the first two woman doctors sent to France. During a bombing raid near Abbeville in May 1918, her care for those wounded around her, regardless of personal danger, led to her being awarded the Military Medal – the first woman doctor ever to receive this decoration for bravery.

Today (August 7th) is Purple Heart Appreciation Day. The Purple Heart was first created on August 7, 1782 by the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army, General George Washington. Then known as the Badge of Military Merit, it was awarded to 3 Revolutionary soldiers in 1783. Take a moment today to remember all the brave servicemen and women who have been wounded or killed while serving in our armed forces.

The Dickin Medal

Instituted during World War II by the British veterinary charity the Peoples Dispensary for Sick Animals, the Dickin Medal is a high honor awarded to military and police service animals who’ve accomplished incredible feats of bravery and gallantry in the face of danger. Since 1943 it has been awarded to 32 pigeons, 18 dogs, three horses, and a kitty.

Heidemarie Stefanyshyn (b. 1963) is a former NASA astronaut, a Naval officer, and a Captain in the US Navy. She is the daughter of a German and a Ukrainian immigrant, and holds two degrees in mechanical engineering from MIT.

the garrison is sketchy

so pre-kerberos shiro is a chill dude right….but he’s got a medal

and if u look at iverson’s uniform he doesn’t have one

which means that shiro was awarded a military medal at some point

so what did shiro get it for? how and why did he get it? does this mean he’s been to space before? also kerberos was supposed to be humans’ first encounter with aliens

so why was there a space-oriented military division before the kerberos mission that shiro was able to be awarded a medal from?

these r questions that can stand alone in their own post BUT since the military division already existed, kerberos might not have actually been humans’ first encounter with/evidence of aliens

u know who literally has an alien mom?

ya boy keith

if the government/the garrison caught wind of aliens living on earth (keith’s mom) and were unsure of their intentions and numbers, they could’ve made a galactic military division out of fear, which would be more than enough reason for keith’s mom to leave

tl;dr for some reason shiro has a military medal, which means that there was a galactic military division before the kerberos mission, which means that alien presence has likely been detected on earth before, which most likely included keith’s mom, and that would be a reason for keith’s family to break apart, which means that we have a lot of questions

Enrico Toti lost his left leg while working for Italian railways, at the age of 24. After his injury he became a cyclist. In 1911, riding on a bicycle with one leg, he cycled to Paris and then through Belgium, the Netherlands and Denmark, up to Finland and Lapland. From there, via Russia and Poland, he returned to Italy in June 1912.
When war broke out between Italy and the Austrian Empire, Toti tried to volunteer for the Italian army but was not accepted due to his injury. Undaunted, he reached the frontline with his bicycle and managed to serve as an unpaid, unregistered, fully non-regulation “civilian volunteer” attached to several units. Forced to leave the combat zone and return home by the Carabinieri (Military Police), Toti stubbornly returned to the front and finally managed to join (still unofficially) the 3rd Bersaglieri Bicycle Battalion. He was killed in the Sixth Battle of the Isonzo. Fatally wounded in a clash, he hurled his crutch at the enemy. He was posthumously awarded the Gold Medal for Military Valour (Italy’s highest award for valour), one of the relatively few civilians to have this honour bestowed on them.

Notable Jobs at the Dry Cleaner's

So I’ve been working at a dry cleaner’s for just over a year and let me tell you, there are some pretty interesting people that come through. I’ve been keeping a running note on my phone and figured I’d share

This lady who brought over a knitted/crochet blanket. Apparently she had a little white dog because there were millions of hairs entwined into the yarn. I used two and a half pet hair rollers and still didn’t get it all out

An old guy who came in with one shirt and asked us to dry clean two shirts. He then proceeded to take the shirt off his back, telling us that was the second one

A lady who demanded to not be charged because we’d put a stain in her dress the last time she came (she had never come before)

A group of people who brought in floor-length heavily embroidered robes

A man who brought in a bag of shirts, stepped back out and drained the bag of water, then walked back in and handed us his drenched clothes.

A lady whose clothes smelled super strongly of smoke from a house fire

This one guy who brings in at least $100 worth of clothes twice a month

Someone who brought in tons of different things (sweaters, dresses, blankets) all made out of alpaca wool

This one guy who had wet himself and “hoped it’d come out”

A little old lady who couldn’t get over how pretty my handwriting apparently was

A policeman who had left a key in his pocket (dunno what it was to but it was small and important-looking) (asked someone like 6 months later and it was a handcuffs key)

A man who had shoved various items of food in his pockets, basically ground it into the fabric, and didn’t even attempt to clean it out before bringing it to the cleaner’s

This guy who brought in THIRTY FOUR SHIRTS, many of which had animal feces on them

Many a pair of pants with used tissues in the pockets

So I had just finished closing up and was about to get in my car and go home when this lady drives up and gets out of her car with this giant basket of clothes. Well, I got in, backed up, and drove out all while staring her right in the face. Sorry lady, should’ve come a couple minutes earlier when I would’ve been required to take your clothes in

This nice police chick who asks genuine questions about my life and somehow remembers literally everything I tell her (while I still have to ask for her name so I can find her clothes oops)

Someone who wanted three pairs of pants to be hemmed, taken in at the waist, cleaned, and pressed before closing time two hours later. I was the only one there, all the other workers had gone home. I said no

This one guy who left an important military award in his pocket and didn’t even realize he had lost it

A guy missing his left arm just below the elbow who could put change in his wallet faster than I’ve ever seen two-handed people do it

A man who, in a police force with badge numbers reaching well into the 600’s, was number 11

Not a job but I just discovered two gas masks in the room we keep the dirty clothes in (wtf)

My 50 year old Chemistry teacher’s bikini bottom

A policeman with the shirt “vape lives matter”

A cop couple with the names Randy and Shandy

and probably a lot more that I didn’t write down and forgot

Dressed in a rather exotic uniform of army boots, army caps and fur coats, this image shows five female members of the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry standing in front of some Red Cross ambulances. As the first female recruits of this organization came from the ranks of the upper classes, perhaps the fur coats should not be too surprising. The women would have worked as drivers, nurses and cooks. Established by Lord Kitchener in 1907, the First Aid Nursing Yeomanry (FANY) was initially an auxiliary unit of women nurses on horseback, who linked the military field hospitals with the frontline troops. Serving in dangerous forward areas, by the end of the conflict First Aid Nursing Yeomanry members had been awarded 17 Military Medals, 1 Legion d'Honneur and 27 Croix de Guerre. A memorial to those women who lost their lives while working for the organization, can be found at St Paul's Church, Knightsbridge, London.
