A 1942 photo of Hans Scholl, Sophie Scholl and Christoph Probst - members of the student resistance group, “White Rose”. The group distributed pamphlets across Germany appealing to the public’s sense of moral duty, calling for resistance to the Nazi dictatorship, and demanding an end to the war. 
Sophie would be caught and reported to the Gestapo on the 18th of February, 1943 at Ludwig Maximilians University. All three would then be sentenced 5 days later and beheaded. George Witt

Quote reblogged from greatest generation with 23 notes

It’s hard to believe that I’m still alive, but this is just a note to let you in on the fact and to tell you that I am back in England for a few more days, having a tiny sliver of shrapnel taken out of my arm. A mortar shell landed right behind me, knocked me flat on my face, took off my helmet, and cut me in just one spot. Since the battalion aid station was only around the corner, I dropped in for repairs. They passed me on and on and out of France on an L.S.T. I hope to go back soon, for I owe the Germans several bullets and as many hand grenades as I can throw.

Private John L. Drugan and Pal, May 1945

Pal was responsible for saving an entire Marine platoon from an ambush on Okinawa after discovering a hidden Japanese machine gun nest. Military dogs were commonly used by the Marines in the Pacific for this specific task, along with sniffing out mines, dug in hidden Japaneses soldiers and more importantly, snipers.
