Sandals were the footwear William Lawrence Sr Omnbit 4-18-19

When sandals were the footwear and the roads weren’t paved, feet got dirty and smelly and needed to be washed before eating else the meal couldn’t be enjoyed.

This unpleasant job was assigned to the lowliest servant.

When Jesus, who already shown he could raise the dead and walk on water, did this for his apostles at the Last Supper, it was rather mind-blowing for them.

Naval hull classification William Lawrence Sr Omnibit 4-12-19

Those cooking up the United States naval hull classification system were trying to be sensible. After all, B means battleship, C means cruiser, D means destroyer and S means submarine.

So why are aircraft carriers labeled CV?

When the mighty ships were first coming into use they were considered cruisers hence the C and things would be flown off it hence the V.

OK, the V. It’s based on the French word voler which means to fly. Why French? We don’t know. Guess it made sense at the time.

Winfield Scott William Lawrence Sr Omnibit 4-11-19

The greatest length of active service as a general in the U.S. Army was Winfield Scott who held the rank from 1814 to 1861, when he resigned seven months after the start of the Civil War because President Lincoln stopped listening to him. General Grant arguably did, however, a few years later. Grant’s victorious strategy was quite similar to the “Anaconda Plan” of strangling the South initially promoted by Scott.
