George K. McKinney, U.S. marshal - Baltimore Sun

Mon, Jun 25, 2012
Army in Houston in 1967, Mr. McKinney was one of the deputy marshals sent to Texas to make sure there was no trouble.He then joined the National Security Agency at Fort Meade as a special agent and polygraph examiner. During this period from 1968 to 1973, Mr. McKinney, in his capacity as a special agent, was involved with more then 1,000 national security investigations, and was also a member of numerous special civil rights details.In 1973, he was appointed U.S. marshal for the District of Columbia — the third African-American marshal to serve the district — by President Richard M. Nixon."As the U.S. marshal for the District of Columbia, he became the only marshal who personally served a subpoena on President Nixon ordering him to turn over the Watergate tapes," said a daughter, Monica McKinney-Lupton of Glen Arm.On April 18, 1974, U.S. District Judge John J. Sirica ordered Mr. McKinney to serve President Nixon the subpoena regarding the White House tapes.President Nixon's chief defense counsel, James D. St. Clair, told Mr. McKinney that delivering the subpoena was unconstitutional. When Mr. McKinney threatened to deputize the White House Secret Service detail in order to comply with Judge Sirica's orders, the president's lawyer agreed to a meeting with Nixon.Mr. McKinney wasn't sure what the reaction would be from the man who had just appointed him U.S. marshal for the District of Columbia and realized he could be fired."Any time you're dealing with the chief executive in an adversarial role — that's different," Mr. McKinney said in a 1995 interview with The Baltimore Sun. "But I was worried. When backed into a corner, there was no telling what Nixon might do."The president accepted the subpoena from Mr. McKinney, who left his D.C. marshal post in 1977.From 1977 to 1994, he held numerous high-level executive management positions with the U.S. Department of Justice in Washington.

Britt Kennerly: Rosies, we owe tons of thanks - Florida Today

Wed, Feb 22, 2012
Moran was born in 1924 in Madrid, Ala. The mother of Bruce Moran of Mims, she was an airplane riveter during the war years, something her obituary says she “was most proud of.” Myrtle Meade Fitzgerald, of Titusville, who died at the “grand age of 100” on Aug. 29, 2011. A native Kentuckian, she moved to Brevard in the 1990s. Fitzgerald worked in factories as a Rosie, said her son, Paul Salisbury of Titusville. “Rosies and Volunteer Rosies performed jobs that were absolutely essential. They donated scraps. They bought war bonds. They really changed the face of the war effort,” said Donnaleen Lanktree of Rochester Hills, Mich., ARRA president and the daughter of a Rosie. “I can’t imagine my 5-foot-1-inch mother working as a riveter. ... She always said the best thing about the war was that women got to wear slacks.” Whatever their contributions, Rosies showed the world what a woman could and would do given the opportunity to pitch in — many while raising families, working other jobs or going to school. It’s estimated that Rosies and the men they worked alongside built 80,000 landing craft, 100,000 tanks, 300,000 aircraft, 15 million guns, 44 billion rounds of small-arms ammunition. In the process, these women assembled a legacy of incredible strength, grace, spirit and ingenuity. What better way to build on the past than to share Rosies’ stories while we still can? ...

Belatedly marking Civil War Medal of Honor recipients' graves | Philadelphia ... - Philadelphia Inquirer

Sun, Nov 20, 2011
At 10 a.m. Saturday, a day after the nation celebrates Veterans Day, those who fought in all of America's conflicts will be honored by Waskie, Kelly, the General George Meade Society of Philadelphia, and American Legion Post No. 405 of the Union League during a ceremony at Philadelphia's Washington Square. Hundreds of unknown Revolutionary War soldiers are buried at the site. Waskie and Kelly see them as brothers in arms to the Philadelphia soldiers and sailors so heavily represented among the 1,522 Civil War Medal of Honor recipients. The medal was created and minted in Philadelphia during the war, whose sesquicentennial is being marked. "I want to draw attention to the men who have slipped through the cracks," said Kelly, of Drexel Hill, a Civil War history aficionado and maintenance worker at Independence National Historical Park. "They received the nation's highest honor and should be remembered." One of those the pair found was Army First Sgt. Edmund English of the Second New Jersey Infantry. English, a native of Ireland who entered service in Newark, N.J., rallied his comrades during the Battle of the Wilderness in Virginia and turned a rout into victory. His grave at Old Cathedral Cemetery in West Philadelphia awaits a Medal of Honor marker. English's unit and others were falling back on May 6, 1864, when the sergeant seized and waved the colors. "Is ...

California man committed to honoring Caribou soldier's sacrifice - Bangor Daily News

Sun, Nov 13, 2011
Smith, 24, the only son of Owen E. Smith, formerly reported missing, was killed in action on June 13 in France. “Sgt. Smith enlisted in the Armed Forces in May, 1942. He received his training at Fort Meade, Md., Fredericksburg, Va., and Camp Blanding, Fla., being sent overseas from New York in the fall of 1942. He had since served in the Infantry as a machine gunner in England, and in the invasion of Normandy. Sgt. Smith was born in Caribou, Nov. 24, 1919. He leaves his father, Owen E. Smith, three sisters, Mrs. David Giberson of Lac Megantic, Quebec; Misses Nellie and Verna Smith of New Britain, Conn.; and his grandfather, Bertie Kearney, Upper Kent, N.B.” Reported five months later on Jan. 4, 1945, Sgt. Raymond Smith was posthumously awarded the Purple Heart medal. It was presented to his father, Owen. While Cole now knows much more about Raymond Smith than when he started, questions still abound about the young man who lost his life serving his country during the invasion of Normandy — Did he have a girlfriend? Did he like football? Did he have a career? Cole believes that Smith was a courageous man, as he enlisted knowing that war awaited him. “It’s the sense of someone wanting to put their life on the line for a cause that’s very noble,” Cole said. He’s driven to research the young soldier out of admiration and respect and in doing so, he’s hoping the people of Caribou can remember the young solder their town produced as someone to look up to and be proud of. “I feel we need heroes, people we can admire,” Cole said. Anyone with additional information regarding Raymond Smith can contact Cole at 925-238-8821.

Delight and disbelief at Iraq withdrawal announcement - Baltimore Sun

Tue, Nov 8, 2011
A spokeswoman at Fort Meade referred questions Friday to the Pentagon. A spokesperson at Aberdeen Proving Ground could not be reached for comment. At least some of Maryland's representatives in Washington welcomed Obama's announcement. As a member of the House, Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin voted against the resolution that authorized the U.S.-led invasion in 2003. "We can't change the past, but after years of calling for a new and more thoughtful approach, President Obama delivered on his pledge to withdraw our military from Iraq in a safe and stable manner," the Maryland Democrat said in a statement. "The Iraqis can now take responsibility for the security and sustainability of their own nation." Rep. Elijah E. Cummings said he still believes "it was the wrong war at the wrong time." "However," the Baltimore Democrat continued, "our soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines and Coast Guardsmen have done our nation proud. The excellence shown by our military has proven, yet again, that they are second to none. … I welcome home our brave servicemen and women, and hope that they will never again be separated from their families by violence and war." Col. Sean M. Casey, the chief of staff of the Maryland National Guard, said the announcement Friday was not surprising. Given Iraqi opposition to the foreign military presence, he said, the inability of Washington and Baghdad to negotiate an agreement that would keep U.S. troops in the country beyond the end of the year was predictable. Casey, who has served 33 years in the military, commanded more than 1,000 Maryland soldiers and many others in Baghdad during President George W. Bush's troop surge of 2007 and 2008. "Everybody saw that as the beginning of the end," said Casey. "We're almost four years later. … I think a lot of people left part of their lives there, some of them their entire life there." ...
