New details have emerged in the slaying of Major General Harold Greene, who died as the result of a “green on blue” attack at a military academy west of Kabul. Greene was the highest-ranking officer to be killed by hostile action since Lt. Gen. Timothy Maude died in the attack on the Pentagon on 11 September, 2001.

The Nurses of WWI. Here is to British Nurse Edith Cavell, executed for her role in WWI.


The Great War, WWI began in June 100 years ago. 16 million died and 20 million were wounded. The Allies lost 6 million military personnel and the Central Powers 4 million.
Women were very active in the war, and among those involved in the battlefield were the nurses. 21000 U.S. military nurses served and at least 8000 addition allied nurses served. Nearly half of U.S. nurses went overseas. 400 nurses died in WWI.
3 August 2015 is the 99 year anniversary of the arrest of a legendary British nurse. One of the most haunting stories of the death of a WWI nurse was that of British nurse Edith Cavell who served in the Red Cross and was stationed in occupied Belgium. She helped hide British and allied soldiers and smuggled them them to the neutral Netherlands. Prince Reginald de Croy at his château of Bellignies near Mons provided travel documents before the fugitive troops went to the nursing houses that helped smuggle them. From there, guides took them to the houses of Cavell as well as other houses where nurses helped them escape from Brussels. The fugitives were given enough money to reach the neutral Netherlands.
The Germans were on to Cavell and arrested her 3 August 1915 and charged her with treason. She was convicted and faced a firing squad with enormous courage.
She was held in Saint-Gilles prison for 10 weeks, with the last two in solitary confinement. She was credited with helping save two hundred soldiers. She was also known for treating enemy soldiers if they were in suffering, in pain or wounded.
Thanks to SOF fan speaking in the second video for reminding us of this brave woman who faced a firing squad 15 Oct 1915. She was 49. Please watch the video below.
