JFK – Sinking For Success

The patrol torpedo boat PT-109 commanded by Lieutenant John F Kennedy sunk 78 years ago, on August 2nd 1943, after being rammed by the Japanese destroyer Amagiri. This incident gave Kennedy lifelong back problems and a war hero status because of the bravery he showed to save his surviving crew. The disaster was also one of the foundations for his political career.

As I face the tremendous uncertainties of life in a society which is trashing the legacy of freedom from World War Two, JFK is one of the heroes whose legacy I cherish.

As he said, “Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try.”

God bless Freedom.

GREEN FREEDOM PARK

I want the vacant 127 hectare Defence Department Site in Maribyrnong and adjacent public lands to become a national park. (Click here to see what I wrote about this on Anzac Day last year.)

A fusion of enevironmentalism and military heritage.

A Green Freedom Park.

Who agrees with me?
