Time with the “Rakkasans” 187th Airborne Regimental Combat Team - Work on this booklet was inspired by my very dear friend Lieutenant Colonel Bill Robbins, U. S. Army, Retired. Bill had served a number of years in an ABU Company within a battle group and a battalion of 327th Airborne Infantry. During that time, his company had a very unusual mascot. The mascot had become a rallying symbol for company members for a long period of time. Images of this mascot had been painted on billboards outside the company orderly room at various times over the years. Some of the images were inside of the barracks. Any number of the company troopers had the image tattooed on their legs. Bill had written a book about his times with the company, especially about their time in combat in Viet Nam. He wanted to find how the mascot had originated and had searched for an extended period of time. Bill finally found me in 2014 and told me what had happened with the mascot over all the years of time. Bill wanted to write a sequel to his book and asked me to help him write about how the idea got started to include in his new book. The idea started in Company I of the 187th Airborne Regimental Combat Team back in early 1953. Over the years, Bill had had some 197th time himself. He began encouraging me to write about my time with the 187th. During the Korean War, I had been in the Korean theater, which included parts of Japan, for about 27 months continuously. About two years of that time had been with the 187th. To tell a more complete story, it seemed appropriate to tell about time of the 187th in combat before I got there and then what happened while I was there. When I learned how the mascot history had continued longs after I had left, it seemed fitting to outline that history also. My indebtedness to Bill Robbins is explained throughout this booklet.
Larry was an outfield star in our country's historical American Negro League. He later befriended and barnstormed with one of Major League Baseball's most legendary greats, Satchel Paige. Larry was a consistent .300-plus hitter with the ability to hit the ball to all fields, homerun power, impeccable speed, and a rocket arm that earned the selection of two East-West All-Star games in 1958 and 1959. He played for the Memphis Red Sox (1957), Detroit Stars (Detroit Clowns) (1958), Kansas City Monarchs/NY Yankees Minor League/St. Petersburg Saints (1959) and went on to play with the Satchel Paige All-Stars (1960---1964). Larry said, "I found someone to play with!" and it was his friend Satch, Larry LeGrande is an unsung hero from our historical American Negro Baseball Leagues who has a story to tell about being a Negro baseball player in America's terrifying era of human conflict and Negro oppression; he had the spirit and perseverance to overcome immense cultural, personal, political, and professional challenges.
We would like to celebrate this Special Edition of Larry on the front cover in his original Satchel Paige All-Star uniform by donating 100% of all the profits to a local North Carolina Negro League Charity Organization. This organization not only helps support youth athletic team sports, but also has a focus on encouraging young people in the fields of math and science.
Jochebed, the mother of Moses, only had her child for the first four to five years of his life, but what she did with that time is what made the difference. Seeds of Biblical truths were planted into the fertile soil of the young boy’s heart until they grew stronger and greater than the pull and allure of the world. God used a mother to do this! Inside this book is a package of seeds for mothers to teach and plant into their children every morning before going to school. It will plant the foundation of the One, True God, separation from the world, God’s plan of salvation, and the power of the supernatural. It will teach them how to talk to God, how to stand upon God’s Word, and the power of worship as it instill within them the foundation of Whom they belong.

The pain, misery and disappointment of the past began to shape and define who you are. This is precisely my story.
God’s Vision of What’s “Normal” for Me” is a book that shows us how to live in a very busy and visual world that is constantly demanding your attention, demanding your confidence, challenging your God given faith, to determine what is acceptable as “normal” for you. In thoughtful and insightful language with clear and plain examples and illustrations, the author Edward Pitts reveals the antidote for establishing God’s normalcy for us is assembling ourselves together. Or another way of saying this is to “building and maintaining Godly connections with other believers” pertaining to the kingdom of God. This conscience and concerted effort of assembling ourselves creates oneness and activates the power of Unity that results in what the bible indicates “One can chase a thousand and two can put ten thousand to flight”.
The record of the Eighteenth Georgia Volunteer Infantry Regiment can withstand a critical comparison with any regiment in the American Civil War, North or South. As warriors, the men of the Eighteenth Georgia could stand shoulder to shoulder with soldiers of any storied unit in US military history. In the three years, eleven months, and twenty days of the regiment's existence, the stubborn men in the ranks trained, marched, and fought from Camp McDonald (outside Atlanta) to Appomattox, burying their dead on battlefields in Virginia, Tennessee, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. The regiment's casualty rate was astounding, even by Civil War standards. By war's end, the butcher's bill tallied 162 men killed or mortally wounded in combat, 221 killed in accidents or lost to diseases, 340 wounded, 305 captured (most of whom were sent to Northern prisoner-of-war camps), and four missing and presumed dead. Only 55 men were left to stack arms when the Army of Northern Virginia was formally surrendered on April 12, 1865. The regiment's journey from Camp McDonald to Appomattox was paved with stunning victories, stinging defeats, and unfathomable hardships. Vermin, poor (or no) food, inadequate clothing and equipment, and lack of sleep sapped the men's strength and destroyed their health-but not their discipline, morale, or aggressiveness. Most times cheerfully but sometimes stoically, the Georgians endured the physical and mental pains of destitution, disease, and death as they followed the regimental battle flag from Georgia to Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and West Virginia. They logged more than five thousand miles, zigzagging across mountains, hills, streams, rivers, swamps, farmlands, and woodlands. This marching and countermarching always portended more fighting and dying. The regiment participated or came under fire in forty skirmishes, engagements, battles, and other operations, suffering casualties in twenty-one of them. The Eighteenth Georgia was prominent in eight of twelve battles where Union forces suffered the most casualties during the war: Gettysburg, Spotsylvania, the Wilderness, Chancellorsville, Second Manassas, Cold Harbor, Fredericksburg, and Sharpsburg. The Georgians were on the field for two of the other major battles-Chickamauga and Petersburg-but were not engaged. The only two major battles they missed were Murfreesboro and Shiloh. Yet miles covered, battles fought, and blood shed are not the sole, or even the most decisive, factors that constitute greatness in a military unit. Some units may fight in obscurity, while others appear at a decisive time and place on the battlefield. Most regiments in Lee's army distinguished themselves on one battlefield or another. Some were prominent on multiple battlefields, thus earning the undying admiration and respect of Southern people. But when it came to helping "Bobby" Lee win a decisive victory or stave off a disastrous defeat, no regiment was more conspicuous than the Eighteenth Georgia. Its name is forever inscribed on the scroll of Confederate regiments that were in the right place, at the right time, and in the right formation to make a significant difference during the battles of Gaines's Mill, Second Manassas, South Mountain, Sharpsburg, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Salem Church, Gettysburg, Wilderness, Spotsylvania Court House, and Petersburg. Through recollections of his own great-grandfather and from other firsthand accounts, Brigadier General Jerry C. McAbee, USMC (ret.), takes us on the journey of the Civil War soldier. We follow the decision making and strategy that led to the end of the war. We understand the mentality of battle-weary men following the directions of a desperate leadership. And we see the side of the Civil War often overlooked by history. This is the true story of a regiment of stubborn men from Georgia.

Teacher strikes are a weekly occurrence. Teachers are demanding improved worksite conditions, more supplies, more money and more support from the administration. Some veteran teachers have thrown up their hands in bitter defeat and retired early or quit. New teachers are questioning why they got into the business of education.

How did we get here and what can be done to change the nature of today’s classrooms?
The journey of life is filled with many ups and down, as well as a myriad of surprises. As individuals, we move thru an everchanging world where we acquire skills and knowledge that is pertinent to our goals and needs. The life experience of each person is totally unique to them. No two individuals experience the same life activities as they struggle to push forward personally and professionally. As individuals we acquire knowledge thru all these experiences, and in the context of multiple settings, we apply what we learn from these settings to be successful in the future. With time that information is often referred to as wisdom.
I was physically abused at home. I was picked on and beaten up at school. I tried to kill myself every year of high school. I ran away as a teenager. I was homeless for two years. Somewhere in the middle of all this, I found a dream worth chasing. This is the story of my life in my own words.
Healing for Those Who Have: If you have had an abortion and are struggling, please know that there is deliverance. God created us to live victoriously; not hang our heads in shame. He knows that we are going to make bad decisions; some that are quite horrific. Don't be afraid of Jesus or feel you are too bad or too dirty for Him to love you. Jesus would have forgiven Judas if he'd asked, but Judas didn't ask. Accept Jesus' forgiveness and He will show you how to forgive yourself.
