As Brother Sam said, Papa was born in Norfolk County, Virginia, the son of Ovie and Ruth Owen. One of his earliest memories was of crossing the Mississippi River on his way back home to Texas where he lived, except for his time in the Army Air Corps, until his death this past Saturday. He graduated from Junction High School in 1938 and he very much enjoyed his memories of playing football for the Eagles, a game that he continued to love throughout his life, second only to poker, and most recently, the lottery. He enlisted in the Air Force on July 30, 1940 and was given the opportunity to become an enlisted pilot with the rank of Staff Sergeant Pilot . His membership in the Army Air Corps Enlisted Pilots Association gave him great pleasure and just last month in Austin he and his buddies refought the war at their bi-annual reunion.

He died on July 2, 1961. Early Years Hemingway stated in Green Hills of Africa that civil war is the best war for a writer. Both of his grandfathers fought in the Civil War and the family was proud of its military traditions. The Hemingway children were brought up on heroic tales of the Civil War. Ernest was also fascinated by the wars and heroes at the turn of the century: the Spanish-American War (1898);, the Goer War (1899-1902); and the Russo-Japanese War (1904-05), which inspired him to collect military cartoons.
James Longstreet was an exceptional Confederate general whose leadership and battle strategy, his relationship with Lee, and controversial disobedience contributed to his enormous impact in the American Civil War and the battle at Gettysburg. Longstreet was born January 8, 1821, and was raised in the South ("General James Longstreet" 1). As a young boy he lived with his parents on the family plantation in Georgia. His father nicknamed him Old Pete, a nickname that stuck with him his whole life, after the saint Peter, because they shared a solid, rock-like character. He entered West Point in 1838.
He was born in Indianapolis on November 11, 1922, and lived a happy childhood with a stable family. He then proceeded to pursue science in college, serve his country in World War II, study under the GI Bill after the war, and land a job in public relations before becoming a full-time writer. Even his large and growing family seemed to capture the true spirit of the American ideal. However, one element of his past would affect him in a way that would change his life forever. In December 1944, he was captured by the Germans at the Battle of the Bulge.
Portrayal of Ohama Beach in Saving Private Ryan In my essay I have been asked to discuss how realistic the portrayal of the Omaha beach landing is in Saving Private Ryan. Saving Private Ryan was made in 1998 and was directed by Steven Spielberg. The film is about a private called James Francis Ryan who is fighting in the Second World War against Germany. Ryan's three brothers were also fighting in World War two but were tragically killed in combat. Having lost three of her sons, the army set out to find Private Ryan to reunite him with his mother and his remaining family.
At the age of four his family moved to Indiana, where he spent most of his teen years. At the age of fifteen he left home to work for an abolitionist’s newspaper company where he was a ‘printer’s devil’. Soon after, he moved to Akron, Ohio with his uncle Lucius Versus Bierce. Young Ambrose deeply admired his uncle not only because he was a lawyer and former Mayor of Akron, but also because he had bravely served in the military. He was inspired by his uncle to attend the Kentucky Military Institute and further his education.
When he graduated from high school as valedictorian at age sixteen, he entered Harvard where he earned an undergraduate and Master’s degree in business administration. Roemer once said, “I’ve always been a Church-going Methodist boy from a cotton field in North Louisiana.” After Harvard, Charles started a computer company called Innovative Data Systems and later Business First Bank, which is where he currently works as a banker and investor. He was Louisiana’s fifty-second governor from 1987-1992. Previously, he was a four-time Congressman. Surprisingly, he beat Edwin Edwards in the 1987 election primaries.
