From 1953 to 1963, the U.S. Army produced THE BIG PICTURE television show. Part history lesson, part recruiting tool and part propaganda, the show was widely embraced by the public. Hundreds of episodes — over 500 — chronicled nearly every aspect of the U.S. military’s history and Cold War capabilities.

This particular episode PLATOON LEADER focuses on Fort Benning, Georgia. Some of the infantry training depicted is clearly directed at fighting in Vietnam and SE Asia, which was ramping up at the time.

Fort Benning is a United States Army post outside Columbus, Georgia. Fort Benning supports more than 120,000 active-duty military, family members, reserve component soldiers, retirees, and civilian employees on a daily basis. It is a power projection platform, and possesses the capability to deploy combat-ready forces by air, rail, and highway. Fort Benning is the home of the United States Army Maneuver Center of Excellence, the United States Army Armor School, United States Army Infantry School, the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (formerly known as the School of the Americas), elements of the 75th Ranger Regiment, 3rd Brigade – 3rd Infantry Division, and many other additional tenant units.

Since 1918, Fort Benning has served as the Home of the Infantry.

During World War II Fort Benning had 197,159 acres (797.87 km²) with billeting space for 3,970 officers and 94,873 enlisted persons. Home to the 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion (United States), their training began in December 1943 and was an important milestone for black Americans, as was explored in the first narrative history of the installation, Home of the Infantry. The battalion, later expanded to become the 555th Parachute Infantry Battalion, was trained at Fort Benning but did not deploy overseas. During this period, the specialized duties of the Triple Nickel were primarily in a firefighting role, with over one thousand parachute jumps as smoke jumpers. The 555th was secretly deployed to the Pacific Northwest of the United States in response to the concern that forest fires were being set by the Japanese military using long-range incendiary balloons. The 82nd Armored Reconnaissance Battalion was activated July 15, 1940 and trained at the Fort. The 17th Armored Engineer Battalion became active and started training July 15, 1940.

The 4th Infantry Division, first of four divisions committed by the United States to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, reorganized and completed its basic training at Fort Benning (Sand Hill and Harmony Church areas) from October 1950 to May 1951, when it deployed to Germany for five years.

During the spring of 1962 General Herbert B. Powell, Commanding General, U.S. Continental Army Command, directed that all instruction at the Infantry School after July 1 reflect Reorganization Objective Army Division structures. Therefore, the Infantry School asked for permission to reorganize the 1st Infantry Brigade under a ROAD structure. Instead, the Army Staff decided to inactivate the Pentomic-structured brigade and replace it with a new ROAD unit, the 197th Infantry Brigade, which resolved a unit designation issue. With the designation 1st Infantry Brigade slated to return to the 1st Infantry Division when it converted to ROAD, the existing unit at Fort Benning required a new title. The staff selected an infantry brigade number that had been associated with an Organized Reserve division that was no longer in the force. For the new ROAD brigade at Fort Benning, Georgia, the adjutant general on August 1, 1962 restored elements of the 99th Reconnaissance Troop, which thirty years earlier had been organized by consolidating infantry brigade headquarters and headquarters companies of the 99th Infantry Division, as Headquarters and Headquarters Companies, 197th and 198th Infantry Brigades.

On Saturday, September 3, ESPN’s College GameDay Built by The Home Depot debuted the show’s opening sequence which was filmed on location at Full Sail University and features multi-platinum country superstars Big & Rich, alongside Cowboy Troy, performing their hit song, ‘Comin’ To Your City.’ This year marks the 25th season for ESPN’s College GameDay, which aired live from Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas, beginning at 9 a.m. ET on ESPNU and from 10-noon on ESPN.

The production, which consisted of a multiple day setup and live video shoot to support ESPN College GameDay’s opening sequence, was held in June 2011 at Full Sail Studios’ backlot on the university’s campus. During the taping current students participated in various opportunities to receive hands-on experience by working alongside ESPN professionals. This collaboration was part of the ongoing Full Sail University Sports Lab powered by ESPN initiative that was co-launched on the school’s campus late last year.

This song was written by Charlie Maguire and Mr. Johnson’s 5th grade class at Assumption Catholic School in Hibbing, MN. The song was created to honor all our heroes participating in the U.S. Olympics in Sochi, Russia in 2014, but especially the ones born in Minnesota. The lyrics to this song are listed below. Enjoy!

We’re All Together (One Big World)

Grade Five, Mr. Johnson & Charlie Maguire, Assumption School, Hibbing, 2014

Zezel, Landsteiner, Shuster, Isaacson
They’re the US curling champions
With their rocks, and their brooms
They’ll bring the gold back to the locker room!

We’re all together, one big world
Yes, we’re all together, for peace and good will
We’re all together, one big world
Yes we’re all together, for peace and good will

He’s got spikes, on his gloves
The Luge event he really loves
Ninety Miles per hour as fast as he can
Christian Niccum is our man

Chodounsky, Diggins, Herman, and Koos
They are going to let it loose
On their skis, they’ll always fly
They’ll never give up they’ll always try

Crossing their skates, in the turns
Swinging their arms, feeling the “burn”
Ringsred and Lamb, Minnesota girls
They’ve already skated to the top of the world

Schleper, Stecklein, and Marvin too
They’re going to skate right over you
You better watch out, here they come
You’re going to be sore, when they’re done

Parise, Martin, Backes, and Faulk
Trying to beat them is a joke
Wheeler, Stepan, McDonagh
They’re all born in Minnesota!

I’m a Big Hypocrite: Part 1 – Hypocrisy Is…

Unpacking God’s truth about hypocrisy.

“I don’t go to church, because the church is full of hypocrites.” It’s one of the biggest hurdles that keeps people from church, and one that people use to keep their distance from God. But the truth is that hypocrisy is more than a barrier when it comes to faith. It’s something we all deal with every day.

In this message, Pastor Ed Young looks at what Jesus had to say about this potent topic. And we discover how admitting our own hypocrisy — in every realm of life — is the prerequisite to experiencing true influence and authenticity.

Ron, Lunk and I had finished training my customers on their gold detectors near Quartzsite, AZ. We decided to do a couple days of detecting in some trashy draws and squeeze out some extra depth with the Minelab GPX-5000. This is what happens when you dig a chunky solid golden nugget in the Arizona desert.
Hey, Quit laughing at my little dance. When you dig up one of those bad boys, I am sure you will do a little jiggle too.

Don’t forget to subscribe, more great videos on the way!

Detector: Minelab GPX 5000

Thanks for watching!
