Soldiers, Sailors and Airmen of the Allied Expeditionary Forces:
You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts you will bring about the destruction of the German war machine, the elimination of Nazi tyranny over oppressed peoples of Europe, and security for ourselves in a free world.
Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle-hardened. He will fight savagely.
But this is the year 1944. Much has happened since the Nazi triumphs of 1940-41. The United Nations have inflicted upon the Germans great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our air offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the air and their capacity to wage war on the ground. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in weapons and munitions of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained fighting men. The tide has turned. The free men of the world are marching together to victory.
I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full victory.
Good Luck! And let us all beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower
#1 – "Cross On The Chest (Russia)"
In the Russian prison system, a tattoo on the chest symbolizes a ‘Prince of Thieves’. This is the highest rank a Russian convict can achieve, and these are generally worn by high-ups in the mob. Russian convicts have one of the most intricate tattoo cultures of any group of people. There are literally dozens of Russian criminal tattoos, each with it’s own distinct meaning. For example, a man with stars on his knees does not bow down to any authority. A man with a tiger on his chest is aggressive towards the police. A web with a spider in it symbolizes a drug addiction. Bells symbolize freedom while roses mean a wasted youth. A manacle represents a 5-year prison term, while a bear is reserved for professional safecrackers. The list goes on and on.
#2 – "Aryan Brotherhood"
The Aryan Brotherhood is the biggest white supremacist gang in the US prison system. They make up less than 1% of the inmate population but are responsible for 20% of murders in US prisons. Their tattoos are usually shamrocks and/or the letters ‘AB’ as well as nazi symbols such as the swastika and SS bolts. The prison system is partly to blame for the creation of racial gangs in US prisons. Until the 1960s prisons were racially segregated, so groups like the Aryan Brotherhood inevitably formed. The Aryan brotherhood’s illegal activities include drug-trafficking, inmate prostitution, and murder-for-hire. They are also sometimes known as Alice Baker, the One-Two, or The Brand. You may have seen depictions of the Aryan Brotherhood in the popular film, American History X.
