"He was very squat and pot-bellied, his head was more like a monstrous toad than a deity, and his whole body was covered with an imitation of short fur, giving somehow a vague sensation of both the bat and the sloth. His sleepy lids were half-lowered over his globular eyes; and the tip of a queer tongue issued from his fat mouth." Clark Ashton Smith, "The Tale of Satampra Zeiros"

The Battle of Ia Drang comprises two main engagements conducted by the 1/7 Air Cavalry Battalion that took place on November 14–15 at LZ X-Ray ("eastern foot of the Chu Pong massif") and by the 2/7 Air Cavalry Battalion on November 17, 1965 at LZ Albany further north in the Ia Drang Valley. It was the first major battle between the United States Army and the People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN/NVA) of North Vietnam during the Vietnam War as part of the U.S. airmobile offensive code-named Operation Silver Bayonet I (October 23 – November 18, 1965). The battle was part of the second phase of the search-and-destroy "Pleiku Campaign", otherwise code-named "Operation Long Reach", that took place from October 23 to November 26. The Pleiku Campaign was named "Pleime Campaign" by Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN) II Corps Command, with a slightly different timeframe (from October 20 to November 26). The appellation of "Operation Long Reach" derives from trường chinh (in Vietnamese) and was assigned – on October 27 at the end of the siege of the Pleime camp – by the II Corps Command to the 1st Air Cavalry Division with the mission to pursue the enemy into the Chu Pong – Ia Drang complex

"As a foulness shall ye know Them. Their hand is at your throats, yet ye see Them not; and Their habitation is even one with your guarded threshold. Yog-Sothoth is the key to the gate, whereby the spheres meet. Man rules now where They ruled once; They shall soon rule where man rules now." -- H. P. Lovecraft, "The Dunwich Horror"

Father of computer science and artificial intelligence, Alan Turing is also considered a gay martyr: committed suicide in 1954 because he could not cope with the publicity following his conviction for homosexuality and subsequent “corrective” chemical castration in spite of the great service to his country —and the whole world— breaking German ciphers during the war.
