But it wasn’t too long after that until he was awarded the rank of Corporal. Brown was given the rank of corporal because the former Corporal committed suicide. During the raid on Pearl Harbor Arnold was stationed at Camp Grant in Illinois, all he remembers are the guards ordering more security to be issued around ammo and weapon storages. Fast forward to June 16th, Brown and other enlisted men were sent to England to support the troops that were suffering mass casualties on the front lines. Brown was eventually sent home due to a leg injury from mortar fire. “A mortar round exploded nearby, and I felt something jerking my trousers below my knee.

The 96-year-old Misch died Thursday, one of the last of a generation that bears direct responsibility for German brutality during World War II.

this test for a student’s college admission is simply unfair. The SAT is not a good way of determining the preparedness of a student for college because it does not test a student’s full capability and this test also provokes bias.
