*** Naval History Seminar

Colleagues: Please join us for a comprehensive look at the Navy's role in Operation Deepfreeze in the Antarctic.

Lecture: “Operation Deep Freeze and the IGY” by Dian Olson Belanger, independent historian and author of Deep Freeze: The United States, the International Geophysical Year, and the Origins of Antarctica's Age of Science. US scientists, joining those of eleven other nations, probed the secrets of the ice and atmosphere in Antarctica fifty years ago (1957-1958), as part of a world-wide cooperative effort to understand the earth and its environment. The Navy-the only US institution that could-supplied, transported, built, and maintained the infrastructure essential to life and work on the frozen desert. The success of this breakthrough pioneering inspired the Antarctic Treaty, which even now dedicates the polar continent to peaceful, international scientific pursuit. All this began in the depths of the Cold War. Belanger will be available to autograph copies of her book.

When: 12:00-1:00 on Tuesday 15 January 2008

Where: National Museum of the United States Navy, Education Center, Bldg76, Washington Navy Yard

*** Korean War Story:

During a battle an ROK (Republic of Korea) commander, whose unit was fighting with the Marines, called legendary Marine (then Colonel) Chesty Puller to report a major Chinese attack in his sector.

“How many Chinese are attacking you?” asked Puller.

“Many, many Chinese!” replied the excited Korean officer.

Puller asked for another count and got the same answer: “Many, many Chinese!”

“#*#&*!#%!” swore Puller, “Put my Marine liaison officer on the radio.”

In a minute, an American voice came over the air: “Yes, sir?”

“Lieutenant,” growled Chesty, “exactly how many Chinese you got up there?”

“Colonel, we got a whole s**tload of Chinese up here!”

“Thank God!” exclaimed Puller, “At least there's someone up there who knows how to count!”
