U-1023 in Plymouth after being captured. She was the same type as U-223, which sank the Dorchester.

US Coast Guard Cutter Comanche left Boston in January 1943. She made contact with her convoy on the 29th and proceeded as scheduled. It was a routine escort, three troopships, and three Coast Guard cutters. They sailed into the frigid waters of the North Atlantic, hoping and praying they would return home again.

They were following Convoy Route “SG,” from St. John’s, Newfoundland, to Greenland. They knew these waters well, but the men on board were cautious, two ships had been sunk on this patrol just five months ago. Despite the possible danger, they knew these troopships needed to continue their journey. The men on board were required in Europe, to help win the war so they could all finally get back home.

PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) – The Latest on President Donald Trump (all times local):

11:30 a.m.

President Donald Trump says he tries to make sure that the military equipment the U.S. sells abroad is not quite as good as what the country keeps at home.

Trump tells members of a Coast Guard station in Florida, “I always say, make ours a little bit better. … Keep about 10 percent in the bag.” That apparently extends to material sold to allies. Trump says, “You never know about an ally. An ally can turn.”

Trump told several dozen men and women at the Riviera Beach station that, “Nobody has the equipment that we have.”

He added that the country’s “doing really well,” pointing to stock market records and his efforts to roll back regulations and beef up the military.

Trump is spending Thanksgiving at his private club in Palm Beach, Florida.

Entire Indiana Police Department Quits After “Being Told To Do Illegal, Unethical, and Immoral Things”

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – An entire Indiana town has no police officers after every single one walked off the job. The officers blame the Bunker Hill Town Council for the situation.

“We have had issues with the town board and there are some activities there where I felt like they were serving their own agenda,” said former Bunker Hill Town Marshall Michael Thomison.

Thomison served as Town Marshall for four years until Monday night when he and four other officers handed over resignation letters to the council, telling them they have had enough.

“They would not communicate with us or the officers and they kept scaling back,” said Thomison.

In their resignation letters, the officers accuse council members of asking them to “do illegal, unethical, and immoral things.”

They cited examples like asking police to run background checks on other town councilors to find their criminal history. The officers also claim they were threatened when they said no.

Nearly 400 children have been rescued and 348 adults arrested following an “extraordinary” international child pornography investigation in Canada, according to a 2013 report by NBC News.

What they eventually found was a full blown child porn production and distribution company in Toronto that was distributing their content online. The site was run by 42-year old Brian Way and sold and distributed images of child exploitation to people across the world.
