The Story of the Red Ball Express

I love military history. I soak it up. Can’t get enough. Movies, books, articles… I have so much respect for the US Armed Forces. Today’s “Best Thing” is about the US Army Red Ball Express.

The Red Ball Express was the logistics answer to the Army’s question, how are we gonna support the Army and their march to destroy the Nazis. We didn’t have the ability to use trains to move fuel, ammunition, and other supplies to the front lines. So we used a massive fleet of trucks and their tremendously brave drivers.

U2 Surprise Concert in Ukraine

When I saw the headline I had no doubt this would easily be an entry for “Best Thing I Saw.” Rolling Stone has a great article covering the story of U2’s Bono and the Edge playing a surprise concert in Kyiv. They were there showing their support for Ukraine, their Army and their people.

Great read and awesome videos. #StandWithUkraine
