British Lancaster bombers, like this one, dropped tons of incendiary bombs on the German city of Dresden during World War II.  One interesting historical factoid is British bombers largely used a visual bombing method of bombing, which involved the lighter and faster Mosquito bombers dropping red flares over the target before the Lancaster’s moved in.  The city was attacked by Royal Air Force and U.S. bomber forces over a period of several days. (Courtesy photo) This month in history: The firebombing of Dresden

A photo depicting the historical abbey before and after the U.S. Army Air Forces attack shows the total devastation. Monte Cassino was, in the minds of Allied military commanders, an unfortunate but legitimate target.  The historical site was actually built in 529 A.D. on ancient Roman ruins originally dedicated to Apollo.  After the Allied bombing, the enemy forces used the rubble as fortifications and made the capture of Monte Cassino more difficult. (Courtesy photo) This month in history: Attacks begin on Monte Cassino
In January 1944, Allied attacks began on Monte Cassino, a natural fortress of a town built on the slopes of an Italian mountain, with a Benedictine Monastery at the top bristling with Axis defenders.This fortress, which constituted a strategic nightmare for Allied planners, had to be captured because it guarded the entrance to the Liri valley,

ELLSWORTH AIR FORCE BASE, S.D.-- Having a plan before going out and drinking may save a life. The consequences for driving under the influence impact the offender in more ways than one. Insurance rates can triple or quadruple, driving privileges are revoked on base and Airmen may also face an Article 15 or court martial. Ellsworth's (605) 385-RIDE (7433) program is available if an Airman needs a ride. This option is always better than drinking and driving. (Photo by Airman 1st Class Corey Hook) The DUI crowd
In 2009, Ellsworth had 37 driving under the influence cases across all ranks. What's more, the DUI statistics show this isn't an issue limited to young Airmen - officers and NCOs have been caught up in the DUI web too.However, what some offenders may forget is it's not just "their" DUI. It's not "their" mistake or "their" issue they can muddle
