“Of the nearly 4,000 Medals of Honor awarded since the Civil War, 40 have been given to Latino-Americans, making them the largest single ethnic group, in proportion to the number who served, to earn what year did viagra come out our nation’s highest award for bravery,” Lansford, the son of a Mexican mother, wrote on his website. One soldier who was denied this honor, however, was Maj. Gabriel Navarrete. He stood up to his commanding officer over what was “without a doubt, the most criticized of moves made by the United States Army in the European Theater in WWII,” wrote historian Raul Morin in “Among the Valiant: Mexican-Americans in WWII and Korea.” Navarrete commanded E Company of the Texas 36th Division, America’s first all Mexican-American infantry unit.

Another remarkable encounter happened a few months ago. I had wanted cialis 10mg not working to return to New Orleans’ Ninth Ward to see how the poorest community in the US was faring nearly 10 years after hurricane Katrina and the levee breaks. I saw a housesit posting in NO with no viagra how to use effectively dates and emailed the couple. They replied that the posting was an error, but they said they were so moved by my writing about NO that they wanted to host me for a week! It was a delightful, insightful experience.

This summer, I’ll have 2 housesits in Malaysia and already the homeowners are recommending activists for me to talk with about sex trafficking, Burmese refugees and environmental problems.

ARGONAUT NEWS: Happy Birthday, Heal the Bay “But I want to be an S.O.B.!” Dorothy Green joked during our discussion about whether to name our new group “Save Our Bay” or “Heal the Bay.” As 20 or so of us crammed into my little studio apartment in Ocean Park, two Hollywood types no one seems to remember made a persuasive — and historical — case for the word “heal.” And so Heal the Bay was christened.

We made another important decision that day: To set our membership price at $5 instead of the “going” rate of $15, $20 or even $25 that most environmental groups charged. While other volunteers of our humble group designed the T-shirts or drafted the legal briefs we’d use to force the Hyperion Treatment Plant to stop dumping sewage into the Santa Monica Bay, I organized our first membership drive. “$5 to help heal the bay!” we called from behind folding tables on the Venice boardwalk, hoping to lure skaters and sightseers. Although we had only a sketchy plan to actually “heal” the Santa Monica Bay, people stopped, signed up and donated. It was 1985. Fellow environmentalist Ruth Galanter was about to be elected to the Los Angeles City Council, unseating the entrenched and pro-development Pat Russell, and Dorothy was feeling heady. Read more »

ARGONAUT NEWS: Nick Ut’s Photo Finish

Pulitzer-winning photographer, in Venice on Saturday, altered the course of history but worries today’s press faces too many roadblocks Can a photo really finish a war? I ask Nick Ut that question. Ut snapped the powerful photograph of the little girl running naked down a road after being burned from napalm dropped on her Vietnamese village. The photo not only earned Ut the Pulitzer Prize, but it is widely credited with helping end the Vietnam War.

Ut is preparing not only for a return viagra order online canada trip to Vietnam this month, but also for co-leading the hands-on Venice Beach Photo Workshop on Saturday with fellow leading L.A. photojournalists Jonathan Alcorn and Ted Soqui. At 64, Ut still works for the Associated Press, although now he covers more Hollywood than Hanoi. But he does believe his searing image of 9-year-old Kim Phuc contributed to the end of the war. can you buy viagra over the counter “Everyone tells me

Twelve years after the bombs fell on Baghdad, the enduring spirit of one Iraqi girl remains unforgettable Twelve years ago this week I sat in my Santa Monica apartment glued to coverage of President George W. Bush’s “shock and awe” campaign against Baghdad. The surreal images of bombs exploding in the night sky were tangible to me because I had just returned from a visit to Iraq. Women had stopped me on the street there and begged me to go home and ask the president not to bomb them.

In 1991 Bush’s father dropped 90,000 tons of explosives on Iraq, hitting homes, hospitals, water and sewage treatment plants — necessary structures that Iraqis were unable to rebuild during the following decade of sanctions. That first day of the 2003 bombing, Read more »
