It Happened On #1

Relax, I’m not going to miss a day of posting. The master plan is to try and post daily. I get tonnes of emails requesting daily posts (I’m lying. I get no emails. Period)

Today is the first of what I hope to be many It Happened On posts. It’s like having a time machine! Kinda?…Not really

Anyway, these posts will be a trip down memory lane for some and a history lesson for others. So without further adieu here we go…..

It happened on September 28 1972…Weekly casualty figures released contained no U.S. fatalities for the first time since March 1965 in the Vietnam War. By this time, there were less than 40,000 U.S. troops left in South Vietnam. Of this total, only a small number, were involved in ground combat. South Vietnamese losses continued to be high since they had assumed the responsibility for fighting the ground battle in the absence of U.S. combat troops

Also, on September 28 1918…A Liberty Loan parade in Philadelphia prompts a huge outbreak of the flu epidemic in the city. By the time the epidemic ended, an estimated 30 million people were dead worldwide

There you have it folks! Death and despair happened on September 28
