"WGN. Program you're listening to now enthusiastically endorses the bob surratt morning show. All right, America, welcome back. It's rich valdes filling in for Jim bohannon tonight trying to keep you up to speed on what's going on in America at night and we've got a number of topics on the table we talked about inflation we talked about the Wisconsin Supreme Court and their decision to rule that drop boxes are only allowed inside county clerk buildings and we talked about hershel woody Williams and the entire Israel situation, which is really interesting conversation. And we were mid thought with Chris in Santa Clara, California, who was telling us about the landscape and how many apartment buildings are in this neighborhood, Chris. Well, and I'll keep it short, so other people can play too. I guess I'm trying to, you know, if somebody went ahead and took a ballot and then it got put into a blue mailbox or if they happened to have a way on their home where they could have outgoing mail, kind of old school with the mailbox. The little flag on it. Yeah, a little flag on it or something. I mean, it sounds like at least in Wisconsin that wouldn't have been a big deal, even the cliff he ran from newsmax. So that's whether it's on my side on the left or newsmax on the right of everybody would be a gradient in Wisconsin, at least. No problem mailing ballots to the U.S. Postal Service. I look here and I figure, hey, you know, if there's a government managed Dropbox in front of a public school or over at city hall or something like that, why would that be I guess maybe I'm trying to ask you to explain to me. Okay, I understand, based on the way you're posing the question. So this wasn't an arbitrary thing. Like, hey, let's just put these drop boxes, you know, because we've got the pandemic. This was to the tune of it's not really an important fact, but it was like $400 million from Zuckerberg, who he put into several nonprofits. The thing was that these nonprofits weren't, they were supposed to act in a nonpartisan manner, but they didn't necessarily. They only put these drop boxes in Democrat districts. And only promoted it to Democrat candidates. So it was a very partisan outreach operation. They paid for these things and then kind of donated them. So it's private money operating in the public sphere. This was something that had never been done before, and they had them outside the law allows only to have these boxes inside of a county clerk's office. So like if it was closed or if there were not going to be employees, if they were going to be behind plexiglas screen or whatever it was. So that was the gist of that. This wasn't necessarily like the board of elections doing that. This was what they called the zuckerbergs issuing grants to local boards of elections. And that's where it got very, very these public partnerships, these quasi public partnerships got very, very tricky and this is what was overruled with the current case. So there's a lot of nuance to it. But good question and good to know that that came out that way because other people may have perceived it that way as well. So thank you, Chris. I appreciate that. Let us continue our journey across the country to Missouri. Let's go to John and Missouri, John welcome, you're on with rich Valdez. Good evening. My concern is with the electric system reliability this summer. Not only in Texas, but across the Midwest, the reliability councils that are responsible for maintaining reliable grid have already given notice to their member utilities not to do any testing not to do any experimenting with their units. And the load that is being experienced in these areas due to this heat wave is very close to the generating capacity of the network in the stories it's getting pressed now that there could be blackouts or brownouts rotating brownouts, whatever in these areas, but the truth, the complete story is not getting out. What has happened over the last 5 to ten years is there have been a closure of well over 100 coal fired generating plants. To the concern about carbon emissions and decarbonization of the world and I believe that it's been done prematurely because the renewable generating capacity has not yet generated has not yet demonstrated the ability to replace all of this coal fired generating capacity. So you're right on all accounts here. And this was a big argument back in 2008, 2009, where people were saying, look, you know, Obama had launched an attack on coal and saying, look, we're going to get rid of this stuff. And the environmentally conscious left said, yes, we've got to do that. We've got to get rid of it. And in many ways, taking apart that industry and left it standing on a wobbly leg. And now we're looking at the reality of life where we, oh, snap, we actually get electricity from coal. Oh, who thought about that? And now you've got Texas urquhart none of that's what you were referring to, but ercot their energy agency in Texas is telling them, hey look, don't even plug in your electric vehicle unless you absolutely have to because there's so much stress on the grid in Texas. Now I don't know if you were referring to Texas or if you were talking about Missouri. But yeah, this is a problem and it's been a problem in California. And these are all states where there's a small percentage of electric vehicles. So clearly it was, I would go further than saying premature. I would say unrealistic. Again, this is kind of like the idea of us saying, you know, we should have free healthcare and we should have free this and we should have free that and the government should pay for everything and ultimately it just is not a doable proposition. And I think this is the problem that we are running into. So you're a 100% right. We honestly don't have a solution to live in a world that doesn't rely on fossil fuels and we still have the same outcome that we have. Like powering our homes at night using air conditioning in the summer. And driving cars that

"You couldn't see them until it was too late. Did you wear protective gear? You mentioned all the things you couldn't carry with you if you had the flame thrower, did you have to protect coverings to make sure you didn't burn yourself? Not a bit. We weren't that smart. No, one we were training. We learned rather quickly. You do not fire into the wind, because you're going to get the result, not him. And if you fire it at body shoulder level, it doesn't go anywhere simply because of wind resistance. It burns out before it can go anywhere. That's why this gunnery sergeant came up with the idea of firing it on the ground and let it roll. Because the wind resistance wasn't there. And I don't know whether any other outfit ever did that or not. I have no idea. I've never talked to another flamethrower operator that just have an encountered one. With some other some of the other combination. And I'd like to we'll come right back on veterans chronicles. Welcome back to veterans chronicles. I'm Greg Columbus, honored to be joined today by Herschel woody Williams, Medal of Honor recipient from the Battle of Iwo Jima. And we're now at the stage of your story where we can talk about the Battle of Iwo Jima, February 1945. Take us ashore. Okay, when we boarded the ship off Guam, that's where we had lived since we had taken Guam in the previous July in August. We had a more chip. Brought out a board that had a diagram on it that outlined the looks of Iwo Jima. And that's where we first learned, where we were going, and the night of it. And but we were a reserve division to the fourth and 5th divisions. And each one of those divisions had 20,000 people in them. So we were just a backup, in case they would need us, and we were told that probably we would never get off ship. They would get us together up on the top deck. Everybody sit down and they would brief us. And of course, they would do that over and over because we had about 20,000 people on that ship. That would probably be gone. 5 days, and then not be used, didn't think they would have to have it. Because the island was only two and a half miles. Wide, and 5 miles long, and were just taking Guam that I think was 16 miles from coastline to coastline. So nobody could have imagined that it was going to take that long to take 36 days to take that little piece of rock. And we didn't have any intelligence about The Rock at all. The only thing that we apparently knew for sure is the underwater demo people from the navy had gone in and cleared the coastline where the haggis books were going to come in to make sure they weren't bombed the boat shop..

"It was a, it was a replacement center where the marines came in to this center, and then they would send them out to the various marine divisions. At that time, we had four divisions who had first second third and fourth. And they would send them out to fill in the vacancy of people who had been wounded or killed, and that was the nations. And third marine division, at that point, was on bougainville. And set us a group of us from New Caledonia to Guadalcanal. And from Guadalcanal we were supposed to go from there to New Caledonia. I mean, to bougainville to fill in the slots of wounded and killed marines there. But before they can get us all organized and shipped out, the marines on Doug and Vale security island, or they declared it secured. And they came to Guadalcanal. They had come from New Zealand to bougainville. Now they come to Guadalcanal, and we join the division there. And that's where I was selected, volunteered, if you will. I was told a long time before that date in the Marine Corps. Don't volunteer for anything. There's bad idea. But I was volunteered for frame floor demolition, specialist group. Which was just forming because we had never seen a flamethrower before. We had hadn't had them. We had a manual with it that's told us how to tear it apart and how to put it back together, but no method of how to use it. What's the procedure? How do you strap the 70 pound thing on your back and do something? So we had no manual that told us that. So we had to work that out. Describe it a little bit to how big, how long, how heavy. Okay. The unit was formed. I was a, I was a browning automatic rifle, individual in a squad. When I was selected to be a flamethrower. Operator. And they selected 6 of us from the company from C company. And assigned a gunnery sergeant to be our immediate supervisor. It was his job to train us about the flamethrower. So there was a form or an information sheet with it that said we would use what we called for a Fox first gel. It was a powder that we mixed with gasoline that turned it into a sticky gel with phosphorus in it. So that if the phosphorus hits something burning, of course, because when we went out at the end of the gun or the flamethrower set it a fire because we had a cylinder out there that lit that let the fuel. And it would be burning and if you tried to brush it off, you just spread it and made it worse. But whatever it hit, it stuck to and burned. And that was the first fuel that they recommended that we used. It's paused right there. Mister Williams, and we'll be right back on veterans chronicles. We're back on veterans chronicles, honored to be joined today by Herschel, woody Williams, Medal of Honor recipient from the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II, of course. And sir, you were just explaining the details of the flamethrower, and you were just explaining to us in the break how it was difficult to manipulate in many ways. Yes. That's true. The first few were using as a, as I said, was called a phosphorus gel that we settle on fire when we expelled it from the God from the tanks..

"I'm Greg Columbus. Our guest this week on veterans chronicles is Herschel woody Williams. He's the last surviving Medal of Honor recipient from the Battle of Iwo Jima. And sir, thank you very much for your time today. It's good to be here. Sure is. Where were you born and raised? I was born in a little town called quiet Dell. Marin county, West Virginia. Near the city of Fairmont, West Virginia. So in the Marine Corps, my home of record was Fairmont because I've plotted and have a post office or anything else. It was a country community. And most of the people who lived there either were farm people or coal mine people. And which was your family. We were dairy farm people. Yes, we had a dairy farm from the time I was a little taught. When did you join the service? How old were you? I tried to join when I was 17. When Pearl Harbor was hit, I was in what was known in those days as the civilian conservation corps. We called it three sheets. I had joined it at 16. You could go in to seas at 16, and I had joined because I had a brother who had joined before me, and he was stationed in West Virginia at a CCC camp. And I thought I would go there where he was, because part I knew they only had one camp in the whole state, and but when I joined, I found out I was going to Morgantown, West Virginia, another camp, therefore a short time, and then everybody in that camp or about one or 260 officer or something like that. They loaded us on trains and took us all the way to Montana. So I was in the seas and Montana when Pearl Harbor was bombed. And the three seas were run by the army. They had an officer who was in charge of the camp, the head of first sergeant and the sergeant and their employees were army people. But all the rest of us were civilians. And we had a yearly contract that you could renew every year if you wanted to renew. About the day after Pearl Harbor was attacked, they called us all out, and we could get into some kind of a formation. We were not very military, but they called us out and told us that America had been bombed. And that there's going to be a war. So they offered us an opportunity that if you wanted to go direct into the army and you were over 18 years of age, which mature a man, you could, in less than go straight into the army. If you were not 18, then you'd have to have parent consent. And or if you wanted to go into some other branch of service, then you can request your release from the species for that purpose. Well, I wanted to be a marine. I've been influenced by the marine trash blues back when I was 12, 13, 14 years old..
