Today Is The Day One Of The Most Famous Faces In Human's Rights Movements Was Born. Martin Luther King Jr Ensured With His Most Famous Speech "I Have A Dream" That Everyone Would Be Subject To Equal Treatment No Matter The Color Of Their Skin. Unfortunately The Rise Of Liberalism Has Led To "Human's Rights Groups" Like Black Lives Matter And Other Such Groups To Paint A Dark Image For These Such Movements. Do Not Let These Groups Rewrite History And Only Remember The One True Movement That Was Needed To Ensure Equal God Given Rights For All. Happy Birthday Martin! Rest Easy... #martinlutherkingjr

This Picture Depicts A East German Air Force Radio Operator In Training With A Russian Air Force Radio Operator. If You Look Closely The East German NCO Is Wearing A WW2 Closed Collar Uniform Hinting Towards The Possible Date Of This Picture Which Is At The Latest The Mid To Late 70s Which Was The Last Time This Type Of Uniform Was Used In The East German Military. #ddr #nva #luftwaffe #eastgerman #sovietunion #soviet #russia #sovietrussia #berlin #berlinwall #warsawpact #training #airforce #soldier #soldat #redarmy #leonidbrezhnev #erichhonecker #nopolitics #east #easterneurope #easternbloc #airforce

(Correction) Thanks To @texasvietnamairsoft I Have Been Corrected And I Have Learned That This M14 Was Still In Issue In Iraq And Afghanistan With Wood Furniture Which Is Very Interesting And I Never Knew They Did That. I Also Asked @sgt_hans_reporting_for_duty Dad Which Served In Iraq And He Said That He Saw Both Wood Stock And More Modern Versions With Black Furniture And Rails Were Issued. This Gun In The Picture Was Not Captured. I Apologize For The Mistake. I Will However Still Upload The Pictures Of Captured Weapons Used By Insurgents Like The M1 Garand, STG44 ,MP40 And Even WW1 Era Maxim Guns Which I Still Find To Be Very Strange On How They Even Get There Hands On These Pieces Of History. #goarmy #usa #america #iraq #afghanistan #iraqwar #afganistanwar #m14 #ussoldiers #soldier #military #usmilitary #acucamo #ach #guns #vietnam #us #unitedstates #armystrong #army #afghan #afghanistanwar #iraqwar

I Have Found Another Photo Of My Favorite Military Like Force In West Germany. I Am Of Course Talking About The Bundesgrenzschutz. In This Photo They Can Be Seen In A Running Exercise. They Are Also Were Dräger M65 Gas Masks. I Definitely Like This Picture A lot Because It Is Very Relatable For The Reason That I Too Sometimes Run In A Gas Mask Which Is Very Tiring But Very Good For Getting Used To Running And I Would Imagine It Would Be Even More Tiring For These Soldiers. This Is Still However A Very Interesting Picture That Isn't Commonly Seen. #germany #germany🇩🇪 #bundeswehr #heer #soldat #berlinwall #berlin #coldwar #ironcurtain #federal #polizei #germansoldier #gasmask #m65gasmask #training #running #nato #west #deutschland #deutsch

I Just Received This Late Christmas Present From @polly_the_anti_tank_owl And I Have To Say I Could Not Be Happier With What I Got. The Items Include A Czechoslovakian M10 Gas Mask With The Original Era Bag And Accessories Which Is Getting Harder To Find, Original 1944 Dated German Stamps, ACU And BDU Camouflage Patrol Caps, And A Praise The Lord And Pass The Ammunition Piano Music Sheet. (I'm Am Not Sure What The Date Is On It But It Seems To Be Relatively Old. Thank You @polly_the_anti_tank_owl And Your Family For Buying And Shipping This Stuff I Really Appreciate It! #czechrepublic #gasmask #m10gasmask #germany #america #ww2 #coldwar #usarmy

Here I Have Another World Famous Picture Were A American Gi Would Usually Stand Next To A East German Guard In The Tomb Of The Unknown Soldier. But This Time A Old Lady Is Standing Next To The Soldier. Definitely Something Refreshing To See And Very Out Of The Ordinary When It Comes To These Types Of Pictures. If I Ever Go To Germany Should I Take A Picture Like This?

I've Recently Found Pictures Of Two Different Types Of Musikkorps. (Music Corps) The First Is Of The West German Bundesgrenzschutz. (Federal Border Guard) The Second Is Of The Modern Day Bundeswehr Musikkorps. Instead Of Going Into The History Of These Which Is A Rather Simple History I Wanted To See Which One Do You Guys Think Looks Better. Bundeswehr Or Bundesgrenzschutz? Sound Off In The Comments. If You Would Like Let Me Know Why You Like Your Pick Better I'm Really Interested On How This Is Going To Go. ---------------------------------- #bundeswehr #germany #germany🇩🇪 #bundesgrenzschutz #westgerman #westgermany #borderguard #berlin #berlinwall #musiccorps #music #musikkorps #ironcurtain #federalrepublic #coldwar #bundespolizei

(Requested) Here I Have A Very Interesting Picture That I Have Not Seen Before For You Guys Today. Thanks To @myyy60 For Sending This Very Interesting Picture. Be Sure To Give Him A Follow Because Without Him This Post Would Have Never Happened. It Depicts Austrian B-Gendarmerie Soldiers In Formation Sometime In The Early 50s. They Were Set Up In 1952 And Had Heavier Weapons And Equipment Compared To The Gendarmeriekommando Which Was Created After WW2 Which Was Lacking In Firepower Due To The Fear Of Nazism Returning. After The Soviet Union Became More Of A Threat The B-Gendarmerie Was Set Up With Heavier Weapons And Equipment Playing A Similar Purpose To The West German Bundesgrenzschutz Which Was To Defend From A Possible Soviet Invasion. Like The Bundesgrenzschutz They Used WW2 Era Equipment Like Stahlhelm And The Uniforms Which Are Also Similar To WW2 German Designs With The Collar Being Able To Be Buttoned Up Instead Of The Open Collar Designs Which The West Germans Transferred To. They Are Even Seen Using Jackboots Similar To WW2 Styles. The "B" In The Name Stood For Readiness (Bereitschaft) But Other Sources Say It Could Also Stand For Special (Besondere) Which Would Imply It's Role As a Paramilitary Force. In The 1990s They Would Be 11,600 Strong But Would Later Be Disbanded Like The Bundesgrenzschutz Due To The Soviet Union Collapsing. They Would Be Replaced Kriminalbeamtenkorps Which Are Basically Their Version Of The German Bundespolizei Which Would Replace The Bundesgrenzschutz. Like The Bundesgrenzschutz They Made Frequent Use Of The WW2 Equipment Being Replaced With More Modern Equipment Towards The End Of The Cold War. Some Note Worthy Equipment Includes The Stahlhelm, Fn FAL, M1919 Browning, Mauser K98K And Even The M1 Garand. I Want To Thank @myyy60 Again Because Prior To His Request I Was Unaware The B-Gendarmerie Even Existed. ---------------------------------------#austria #bundesheer #vienna #gendarmerie #coldwar #austrian #austrianarmy #ironcurtain #sovietunion #berlinwall #fnfal #stahlhelm #west #austrianpolice #austrianpower #postww2 #ww2 #borderguard #border #paramilitary2 #paramilitary #borderpolice #austria🇦🇹 #soldaten #german #soldat

Here I Found A Rather Interesting Picture Of The Bundesgrenzschutz Later To Be Known As (Bundespolizei) In The Early 2000s. They Can Be Seen Carrying A Mp5 Derived Weapon And Are Using Similar WW2 Style Ranks And The Infamous Fallschirmjäger Helmet (M3😎 From WW2 Which Was Modified For Use As A Combat Helmet. I Believe The Picture Was Taken In The Late 80s. #westgermany #bundesgrenzschutz #coldwar #ironcurtain #freeworld #west #borderguard #german #germany #berlin #gsg9 #counterterrorism #mp5 #bundespolizei #polizei #police #borderpolice #bundeswehr #germanarmy #germanpolice #1980s #berlinwall

Merry Christmas! Day : 10 Today December 25th Was The Day The Romanian Revolution Of 1989 Ended. After Several Days Of Civilians And Soldiers Fighting Against Pro Communist Forces The Communist Dictator Nicolae Ceausescu Was Found And Captured Along Side His Wife. They Were Tried And Executed For Crimes Against Humanity. They Were The Last Official Execution Of Romania. The Romanian Uprising Was By Far The Most Destructive Uprising In The Eastern Bloc And Many People Died Tried To Liberate The Country From Communist Rule. After The Execution Of Ceausescu And His Wife Resistance From Most Pro Communist Forces Ceased And Many Romanians Celebrated In The Streets Being Able To Have A Communist Free Christmas For The First Time. As Ceausescu Said "It's expensive to keep communism alive today" And He Could Not Have Been Any More Right. He Payed A Huge Price For Trying To Keep Communism Alive. I Would like To Wish You All A Communist Free Merry Christmas And A Happy New Year! Take Care Everyone. #romania #românia #ironcurtain #eastern #easternbloc #warsawpact #romanianmilitary #rsr #rpr #russia #sovietunion #revolution #gorbachev #mikhailgorbachev #romanianrevolution #romanianrevolutionof1989 #soldier #communism #fallofthewall #fallofthesovietunion #nopolitics #history #freedom #romanian #romanianflag #nicolaeceausescu #stalin #borisyeltsin #ronaldregan
