Memorial Day

Today is Memorial day, so I felt it fitting to post about Mr. L. Ron Hubbard himself.

Lieutenant L. Ron Hubbard served in the Navy during World War II until he was injured in action, which landed him in the Oak Knoll Naval Hospital. While there he researched what is now Dianetics. He applied these procedures on himself and also on other war victims in the hospital, ultimately bringing a number of our fighting men back to health.

His patriotism was only exceeded by his desire to help his fellow man. In his own words:

"I like to help others and count it as my greatest pleasure in life to see a person free himself of the shadows which darken his days.
"These shadows look so thick to him and weigh him down so that when he finds they are shadows and that he can see through them, walk through them and be again in the sun, he is enormously delighted. And I am afraid I am just as delighted as he is." - L. Ron Hubbard.
