  1. AMELIA... Intriguing pioneer. What do you think happened to her? There's lots of theories around...

    1. Dan, I have no doubt that she was captured and the US government knew. You must watch this video and you'll see why I believe this.

  2. Karlene, I tried that URL, here in Halifax, but
    I was not led to the video BUT - I went googling & found another. It was from the HISTORY channel. So, Amelia was captured? And, a rescue operation would have alerted the Japanese that their CODES had been broken?
    If I had been US President, at that time, I
    would have instructed the NAVY to send in
    a team of Japanese-Americans into the area
    where Amelia was being held. The team, of
    course, would have to be disguised as, say,
    fisherman - sailing around in a genuine,
    fishing boat: remember THE GUNS OF NAVORONE?

    1. Dan, Yes... she was. Can you imagine if the US had openly gone in to get her, that we may have entered the war earlier, but then Pearl Harbor might never have happened because we would have been on alert? The choices in life impact others for sure.

      It's so sad that our government could cover this up for so long. Thanks to the person who at least moved the photo so it could not be destroyed.


Thank you for your comment! If your comment doesn't appear immediately, it will after I land. Enjoy the journey!
