History Lesson

Published:

This was from a USAF friend. Have no idea if it is true or not. It would not surprise me, if it is.





World War Eleven-not funny at all



YOUNG PEOPLE CANNOT LEARN FROM HISTORY ANYMORE BECAUSE HISTORY IS NO LONGER
TAUGHT AS A REQUIRED SUBJECT IN
PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOLS.

Theodore " Dutch " J. Van Kirk was the navigator on the " Enola Gay" when it
dropped the bomb at Hiroshima, Japan, and is the
last surviving member of the crew.

This really happened.

Dutch was asked to speak at a grammar school this past week.

The young teacher introduced him by saying the speaker was a veteran of
World War Eleven (as in WWII).

Dutch stood up and walked out of the school without saying a word.

Doesn't surprise me at all.
There are some INCREDIBLY stupid teachers teaching our kids.
Seems like the last 30 or 40 years they let ANYBODY teach.
And the union makes sure they can't be fired.
