Just over 84 percent of these men made anywhere from ¡ to 5 war patrols.
However, a small group of Black stewards, ¡26 in number, made from 6 to ¡3 war
patrols, and thus must be considered among the best of the best both for their

... to back with the rest of its herd, like early infantry. Therefore there is nothing
exciting about shooting a musk-ox; but a bear is a very different thing. Hunting a
polar bear from a sledge is breathlessly exciting and fairly dangerous, and a
bearskin is worth quite a lot of money, and a traveller may meet a bear at any
minute on the outer coast, even round Sabine Island. This possibility shortens the
longest journey. All three of the men were keeping their eyes open 57 THE

It was the first guy, the skier who had checked the bag. He skated across the
bridge to me. I held still. He snatched the key out of my hand. “You'd better be
telling the truth,” he said. I nodded. I was pretty sure I had his face on camera,
now, but somehow that wasn't as comforting as I had thought it might be. Not with
that gun pointed at Kevin. He skated back and started to climb up the hill. “We'll
all just wait here until I hear from my friend,” Jaws said. It was the longest fifteen

Northern Border U.S.-Canadian Cooperation Before September 11, the United
States prided itself on having the longest open border in the world: the northern
border with Canada, spanning 12 states and over 4,000 miles.53 Today,
Americans as well as Canadians have come to understand that open borders are
rare precisely because they are a luxury. Given the ever present threat of
terrorism, officials in both countries have noted that cooperation between

The U.S. Navy's Taiwan Patrol Force operation lasted from summer 1950 until at
least 1979, arguably even sporadically after that date. Lasting twenty-nine years,
the Taiwan Patrol Force was one of the longest naval operations in modern
history. It was also one of the most successful, since—as the most obvious
symbol of American power—it ensured that friction over the Taiwan Strait did not
escalate into a full-blown war. In fact, the Taiwan Patrol Force did its job so well
that virtually ...

That wasn't my philosophy. I knew it jolly well could happen to me because I had

The Guam was then one of five American gunboats that comprised the Yangtze
Patrol and that navigated the ever-shifting waters of the “Long River,” as the
Chinese called it, from its mouth to Ipin, after which it was known as the “River of
Golden Sand.” The Yangtze Patrol represented the longest military operation in
U.S. history, having been formed in 1854 shortly after Commodore Perry used the
threat of force to open up Japan to trade. Vice Admiral William Glassford took
