Reformed Churchmen

We are Confessional Calvinists and a Prayer Book Church-people. In 2012, we remembered the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer; also, we remembered the 450th anniversary of John Jewel's sober, scholarly, and Reformed "An Apology of the Church of England." In 2013, we remembered the publication of the "Heidelberg Catechism" and the influence of Reformed theologians in England, including Heinrich Bullinger's Decades. For 2014: Tyndale's NT translation. For 2015, John Roger, Rowland Taylor and Bishop John Hooper's martyrdom, burned at the stakes. Books of the month. December 2014: Alan Jacob's "Book of Common Prayer" at: January 2015: A.F. Pollard's "Thomas Cranmer and the English Reformation: 1489-1556" at: February 2015: Jaspar Ridley's "Thomas Cranmer" at:

2 January 1955 A.D. LTGEN Lewis “Chesty” Puller, USMC—“They Can’t Get Away This Time”

2 January 1955 A.D. LTGEN Lewis “Chesty” Puller, USMC—“They Can’t Get Away This Time”

1955: LtGen Lewis B. "Chesty" Puller

"They Can't Get Away This Time."

Fourteen personal decorations in combat, five Navy Crosses, a Purple Heart, and a long list of campaign medals, unit citation ribbons and other awards: Lieutenant General "Chesty" Puller's heroics earned him more military decorations than any Marine who served before or since.

He led Marines in 19 campaigns over four decades in some of the most critical battles of the 20th century, including the Battle of Inchon and the Battle of Chosin Reservoir.

LtGen Puller is best remembered by fellow Marines for his quick-witted encouragement in the midst of combat, including "They're on our left, they're on our right, they're in front of us, they're behind us...they can't get away this time."
