Father Leo Henrichs - Franciscan priest who was born on the Feast of the Assumption, 1867, in Oestrich, now a part of Erkelenz, Northrhine-Westphalia, Germany and given the name of Joseph. When he joined the Franciscans, whose friary had left the persecution of the Church under Otto von Bismarck, for Paterson, New Jersey, he took the name of Brother Leo before being ordained a priest on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, 1890. While assigned to St. Elisabeth of Hungary Church in Denver, Colorado, Father Heinrichs was fatally shot while distributing communion. The shooter, a Sicilian Anarchist later described his motivations as hatred of Catholicism.
The history of military technological development is replete with examples of personal zealotry, which drove the advancement of new weapons and ideas about warfare. In the emerging arena of aerial warfare, several such airpower evangelists appeared in the early 20th Century to champion the possibilities of this new kind of military technology. Within the American military, that evangelist was Brig. Gen. William “Billy” Mitchell. A firm believer in the capability of air power to become the dominant force in combat, Mitchell was an uncompromising zealot with strong personal ambitions and his own sense of destiny driving him. One of the key obstacles to his vision of air power becoming the dominant defense force for the United States however, was the U.S. Navy and it's strong support of the battleship as its weapon of choice following World War I. This led to a inter-service war between Mitchell and the Navy, which was fought out in the press, the halls of Congress and the White House, and eventually at his court-martial for insubordination. Despite this, Mitchell's legacy continues today, as the modern U.S. Air Force that he envisioned almost 100 years ago, serves as a cornerstone of the American military.

Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday at @Writestream) at 1 p.m. Eastern.

August 28, 2013- INAUGURAL BROADCAST
Field Marshall Paul von Hindenburg, A Career
In this inaugural broadcast of World View Foundations, the life and career of Field Marshall Paul von Hindenburg will be reviewed.
Field Marshall von Hindenburg is portrayed by “Court Historians” as a senile old man who surrendered Germany to the evil Hitler and Nazis. This is false and an insult to a great Aryan whose career spanned the Foundations of the German Nation, he was present as a young Lieutenant at the official proclamation of the German Reich in 1871, he served in the Franco Prussian war and thus had the distinction of having been an officer under Bismarck and Wilhelm I through the end of the German Monarchy. Hindenburg actually retired before the Great War and was recalled to service by Wilhelm II and became the hero of the Battle of Tannenberg and exposed the Jewish “Stab in the back after the loss on 1918 and became the first elected President of Germany in 1925.
As President, von Hindenburg appointed Adolf Hitler as Chancellor in a Coalition NSDAP-Nationalist Government on January 30, 1933. Hindenburg died in August 1934 and was succeeded by Hitler.
Several myths will be debunked:
Hindenburg approved of Operation Hummingbird – The Night of the Long Knives
Hitler referred to von Hindenburg as “The Old gentlemen until the end of his “Hitler’s life”
Hindenburg retained control of several facets of Government until his death in August 1934, including the Reichswehr, the German Army.
Modern Germany’s disgraceful treatment of von Hindenburg while honoring his Leftist predecessor Ebert.
