    Why Don’t American Know About ”bonus Army Movement In 1932”, They Only Know ”1989 Tiananmen Movement”? Tanks were sent to DC to shoot innocent veterans. who is the ”tank man” in this movement? does anyone know?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonus_Army

    Police shooting

    The marchers remained at their campsite waiting for President Hoover to act. On July 28, 1932, Attorney General William D. Mitchell ordered the police to remove the Bonus Army veterans from their camp. When the veterans moved back into it, they rushed two policemen trapped on the second floor of a building. The cornered police drew their revolvers and shot two veterans, William Hushka and Eric Carlson, who died later.[9][10]

    William Hushka (1895–1932) was an immigrant to the United States from Lithuania. When the U.S. entered World War I in 1917, he sold his butcher shop in St. Louis, Missouri and joined the United States Army. After the war he lived in Chicago, Illinois.[10] Hushka is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.

    Eric Carlson (1894 – July 28, 1932) was a U.S. veteran from Oakland, California. He fought in the trenches of France in World War I.[10][11][12] He was interred in Arlington National Cemetery.[13]

    When told of the shootings, President Hoover ordered the army to evict the Bonus Army from Washington.

    [edit] U.S. Army intervention

    At 4:45 p.m., commanded by Gen. Douglas MacArthur, the 12th Infantry Regiment, Fort Howard, Maryland, and the 3rd Cavalry Regiment, supported by six battle tanks commanded by Maj. George S. Patton, formed in Pennsylvania Avenue while thousands of civil service employees left work to line the street and watch. The Bonus Marchers, believing the troops were marching in their honor, cheered the troops until Patton ordered the cavalry to charge them—an action which prompted the spectators to yell, “Shame! Shame!”

    Shacks that members of the Bonus Army erected on the Anacostia Flats burning after the confrontation with the military.
    After the cavalry charged, the infantry, with fixed bayonets and adamsite gas, an arsenical vomiting agent, entered the camps, evicting veterans, families, and camp followers. The veterans fled across the Anacostia River to their largest camp and President Hoover ordered the assault stopped. However Gen. MacArthur, feeling the Bonus March was a Communist attempt to overthrow the U.S. government, ignored the President and ordered a new attack. Fifty-five veterans were injured and 135 arrested.[10] A veteran’s wife miscarried. When 12-week-old Bernard Myers died in the hospital after being caught in the tear gas attack, a government investigation reported he died of enteritis, while a hospital spokesman said the tear gas “didn’t do it any good.”[14]

    During the military operation, Major Dwight D. Eisenhower, later President of the United States, served as one of MacArthur’s junior aides.[15] Believing it wrong for the Army’s highest-ranking officer to lead an action against fellow American war veterans, he strongly advised MacArthur against taking any public role: “I told that dumb son-of-a-bitch not to go down there,” he said later. “I told him it was no place for the Chief of Staff.”[16] Despite his misgivings, Eisenhower later wrote the Army’s official incident report which endorsed MacArthur’s conduct.[17]

      Because many Americans who know about 1989 where not alive today in 1932. If they were they would be 80+ years at least old plus it is not in todays modern thoughts, than some thing that happen like, even I barely know about 1989 because I was so young.

      It maybe well be a case of ignoring history but it works both ways, like when Chinese people blame the USA for wars and battles in the modern era, China caused wars, had mass battles, invaded other countries or force them to do there bidding well before the the USA did.

      Its the same with Japan and the Sino-Japanese wars, however, people tend to forget that the “Chinese” Yuan dynasty was the first foreign country to invade Japan. Not to mention that Asians in the form of the Mongol Empire where raging war half way across the globe into the four corners of the known world well before Europeans did….

    Is A Trip To Washington D.C. Worth $1,218? I’m in 8th grade and my history teacher told us about a trip that we were allowed to take after school in the summer. The trip costs $1,218 we go to Washington D.C. and see the Washington Monument, WW2 Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, Iwo Jima Memorial, Pentagon Memorial, Holocaust Musuem, Vietnam Memorial, Korean Memorial, Alexandria, Mount Vernon, Smithsonian Institution, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial, FDR Memorial, MLK Memorial, Ford’s Theatre, Petersen House, Capitol Grounds Tour, White House, and the National Archives. Since we live in St. Louis, we would fly there by plane. The trip includes round trip airfare, transportation, hotel, meals, and admission fees. My best friend and one of my good friends told me to think about going. I don’t really know how much trips cost and want to know if it’s worth it. We stay there for three days and 2 nights. It seems it’s a fun experience especially with my friends and since we’ve been learning about George Washington and a bunch of the first presidents, it may be cool to see it in person. I usually go to an overnight camp in the summer which costs more than the D.C. trip but it’s for four weeks and I’m not doing it this year. Please tell me your opinion. I procrastinated which was a bad idea and registrations due March 15th!

      What you will do is make history come to life. This will enhance your high school classes.

      You said that you usually spend more than this going camping, so I would definitely recommend it.

      I have been stationed in Washington, DC when I was on active duty. I have lived and worked in Washington, DC. I have lived part of my retired life in Washington, DC.

      Go register before it is too late!

    Isn’t It True That Most Liberals Don’t Go To War Because They Are Cowards? My two kids were courageous, and served their country. They are buried in Arlington National Cemetery, like true American Heroes. What brave kids I had.

    I’m so proud.

      Once we were graced with these incredible fighting men, great American heroes, every single one of them — men legends are made of.
      It’s about time we had the good grace to recognize them.
      May the Creator forgive us our short comings and allow these brave men their rightful place in the Hall of Heroes where they so justly belong.
      To the 996, clear skies Red-Tail Angels, clear skies always.
