CHANGE OF ADDRESS

     Will you please keep us informed of your correct address, this will insure you of getting your Cub?

 

Presidents Message

     I wish to thank all the many members for the Christmas cards they sent to me and my family.

     Now that we are in the New Year its time to start thinking about the reunion in Chicago, in July. I know Jack is working hard to see that everyone who attends has a good time, but its up to all of us, every member of the Assn. to see that all the old and a lot of new faces are there, so let's all get in contact with at least one former member who never attended a reunion, or who has not attended in the last few years.

     In the last issue of the Cub (Dec.-Jan.) I noticed 3 letters to the Editor, I hope John gets at least 3 letters for every Cub, because to me they proved interesting reading. Although I must admit reading about Jack and Shirley's trip sort of made me envy them, also Dave Price's letter was very interesting, and I wish him lots of luck at his new job.

     Cliff Perras is still selling his business just as good as he sells the Assn. to former H. 424 members.

     Doug Coffey reports he has received drawing of our memorial to be erected at St. Vith. This is the project of our association and I hope all will help with their donation to the Memorial Fund.

     Our editor has informed me that the Assoc. received an offer from Pete Frampton to donate the Assoc. the remaining copies he has of the Lions Tale. May I, on behalf of the Assoc., thank Pete for his offer.

     I have written to the members of the board of directors recommending we accept these books and send them to any of our members donating $5.00 or more to our Memorial Fund.

     To the Chapters and groups who held Dec. 16th dinners, may I say I hope you all had a very good time.

CLAYTON RARICK President

 

Membership Report

     Following is list of names of those who have not renewed membership. I feel certain that many of our members know some of these men, and will get in touch. I have written to each of them, although someone close would be able to do much better toward bringing them back. Most likely a number of them have just plain forgotten to mail their dues.

     Here are fifty names who were members this past year, and we certainly cannot let this happen year after year. According to my records; it appears that we picked up some 37 members this last year, so the least we can do is pick up the difference this year, and I know of no good reason why we should stop at that. I would like for each of us to at least bring in one new member before this coming July.

Letters to Editor

Dear John:

     Hope you and your family had a wonderful Holiday season.

     Following is an account of the Balto Dec. 16th reunion.

     Mr. and Mrs. John Loveless were gracious enough for us to assemble in their home. Those present were: Mr. and Mrs. John Loveless, Mr. and Mrs. Henry M. Broth and Mr. Oliver Lothrop and of course Kay 2.

     We had an enjoyable evening talking and reminiscing of the past, of our conventions and the 106th div. in general and I showed movies of the past conventions.

     Refreshments were served by the Loveless's and Oh Boy! that homemade root beer that John makes is really a treat.

HENRY M. BROTH

 

Dear John:

     A week or so ago, I received a phone call from a Mrs. Sumliner who was temporarily in Baltimore. She was seeking information about her brother, PFC Aaron William Cohen, Co. C 424th Inf. who apparently had been killed very early in The Bulge, perhaps 16 or 17 Dec. 1944, and I gather is buried either in Belgium or Germany. She did not have his serial number and was not too sure about his unit.

     I looked in The Cub thru our list of members and saw only one named from Co. C, 424th. He was from Penna. I gave her the name and address. For the life of me, as I write this, I cannot recall the name.

     However, I told her that I thought we could put a note in "The Cub" and she might, by chance, hear from someone.

     Anyone having any information about Cohen, could write to her as follows:

Mrs. H. Sumliner

35 Waller Road

Bridgeport 6, Conn.

 

     She thinks he had his basic training at Camp Wheeler, Georgia and went right to Atterbury, as he evidently was not in the Army very long before he was sent overseas.

Sincerely,

JOHN LOVELESS

 

Dear Jim & Maydean:

     I just had to write to you and tell you about my husband.

     Bill Luoma was killed June 11th, 1953 in an underground iron ore mine down at Ramsay about 3 miles from our town. We sure have had some lonely holidays without him.

     My two boys often mention their dear Dad & my sweet husband and a swell dad. We both were so happy the 9 years we were together and to think of all the hard luck he had while in service he had to go the way he did.

     My sons are now 12 & 8 yrs. of age. I'm staying on the same farm he & I stayed on & I have been taking care of his Dad who is 87 yrs. old and an invalid, but he is very contented with my caring for him. Bill lost his Mother six months before he was killed, she also was in bed for 5 years.

     I sure can thank God for helping me to keep healthy as to take good care of my family and my Father-in-law.

     Whenever you go on your vacations, drop in and visit with us, we will be happy to see you always.

     Bill mentioned you people many times before he left. I do hope you have a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

Love

Ann Luoma, Wm, Jr., & Roy Luoma Rt. 1, Box 117

Wakefield, Michigan

 

Dear Friends:

     We were sorry to miss you at the convention, but our dream of touring Europe with the Minneapolis Choralaires came true and we spent thirty days with them in England, Scotland, Wales, France, Belgium, (They sang at the Fair) Italy, Austria, the Netherlands & Germany. 3600 miles by bus. We flew to and from Scotland. Thrilling beyond words.

Best wishes,

HELEN & JIM HATCH

 

Dear John:

     Detroit group had Dec. 16th Reunion at Bill French's.

     Alan Dunbar wrote me a letter earlier this month stated that he was going to Army Command School this summer and wanted to get in his request for leave time covering the period of our Chicago Reunion at the Edgewater Beach Hotel. I only wish more individuals would take this early interest in setting up their respective travel schedules.

Regards to all

JACK GILLESPIE

 

Dear John:

     I enjoyed reading your Issue #2, Volume 15, and I was particularly interested in the article covering General and Mrs. Perrin.

     Under separate cover, I am mailing you a copy of a collection of short stories covering the 106th Infantry Division. We have a certain number of these books which were printed on the occasion of the 1953 Convention in Columbus. The work was done and the cost of the material was donated in the hopes of giving someone something tangible in return for a donation to the Memorial Fund. I do not recall exactly how much money was received, but it was neither large nor small. I think at one time we said we would give the book free of charge to each person who made a $5.00 contribution to the Memorial Fund.

     The point of sending this booklet to you is to give you a copy for your files and to better enable you to figure out how you would like to bring an offer to the attention of the membership.

Sincerely yours,

D. B. FRAMPTON, JR.

Memorial

     We are rapidly approaching the time that our division will have in St. Vith, Belgium, a memorial to honor those who fought and died to keep our country free.

     In this Cub, is print of memorial from Victor Schutz, architect, St. Vith, Belgium.       The memorial will include a chapel area which will contain memorial plaque with inscription of our choice.

     Our flag, along with the Belgian flag, will fly above the memorial.

     Location of memorial will be on the college grounds which will insure us that it will be properly maintained, and will be viewed by many persons.

     Perhaps some of us may be there for the dedication service, or in the years to come we may have the opportunity to visit the memorial.

     Doug Coffey will keep us informed of progress of this project.

Dear John:

     Have been wanting to write you since Sept. But just did not get to it, always so much to do.

     Please give my best to all the grand folks I met in Phila. and do hope I can be with you all in Chicago.

My love to all

ANNE E. DULEBOHN

 

Dear John & Stella:

     We had a wonderful holiday and were closed from Wednesday at noon and did not open until Monday morning and that in itself was wonderful, things are fine with us and business is going along well.

     Have just a minute but thought you might like some of this correspondence we received during Christmas. You might have known about Bill Luoma, we did not. She might also need some help from the Memorial Fund.

Best wishes for 59.

Sincerely,

JIM & MAYDEAN WELLS

 

John:

     I am enclosing a letter from Captain Mudd, a very fine officer with the 592 FA Bn. I am sure he would have no objection to its being published in the CUB. We need reminiscences of this kind in the paper to keep alive the memories of our battle days. Please return it to me.

     In this connection you might publish the following:

     I had always wondered where the Mess Orderly got all the food and coffee served that terrible night of the 16th. He is Eddie Hirtz and now runs a restaurant near Oshkosh, Wis. So I wrote and asked him. He replied: "Sorry, General, that will have to remain my military secret of the war."

Sincerely

LEO McMAHON

 

"How's About Chicago in July, Fella?"

 

Dear General McMahon;

     It has been fourteen years now since the "Battle Of The Bulge." I am sure you too have some memories of those hectic weeks that are hard to forget, especially from the 16th of Dec. and the weeks that followed.

     I recall as if it were yesterday coming back with a forward party and checking in at your Headquarters in St. Vith about midnite on the 16th of Dec. The hot coffee you had prepared was certainly enjoyed. We then moved North of St Vith and went into position until driven out the next afternoon.

     This day has a special meaning to me as it was on the 21st Dec. that I was captured. Of the five men who were with me, three were captured and the other two were victims of the Nazi Burp guns. Of the three that were captured, we never heard from them again. I have always hoped and told myself that perhaps they too were lucky.

     It must have been on the 19th or 20th that your Aid, Lt. Martin was killed. Some of the American boys who had also been captured told me they found Lt. Martin's body alongside-a road. I also think often of Lt. Alexander, who was Ex. Officer of A Battery, 592 FA Bn. He was in Capt. Potts Battery and killed on the 16th.

     I am sure the Good Lord was taking care of me, for which I have been very grateful. General, I will never forget, if I live to be a hundred, the nite of 23rd Dec., about eleven o clock, when I walked into your Headquarters. As you came forward to shake hands you said, "Mudd, I'm glad to see you." And I said, "General, you're not half as glad to see me as I am to see you." The next day I was back with the 592nd and it was a wonderful Christmas.

     Each year at this time I say an extra prayer for those of us who did not come through and especially for those who were not so fortunate. Hope you have been well and that you have a Merry, Merry Christmas.

Most sincerely yours,

J. O. MUDD, Capt.

592 FA Bn., Retired

EDITOR'S NOTES

     Many thanks to all who sent holiday greetings to our home. Heard from some of our 106 friends whom we haven't seen lately, including our former Memorial Chairman, John Reynolds, George Iwamoto, Hilo, Hawaii, Glen Hyland, Don Hinrich & Mort Rubinstein. Hope to get those who are not now members to sign up.

     Had several notes about membership cards, including one from Byron Heath of Alhambra, Calif. All membership cards have now been mailed. Please advise if you haven't received your card.

     Have read that a motion picture has been made to commemorate the 14th Anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge, titled "The Last Blitz Krieg." I have not as yet seen the picture but hope to when it comes to our town.

     Our assoc. now has three projects:

          1. Increase membership.

          2. Promote attendance at our 13th annual reunion at Edgewater Beach Hotel, Chicago, July 24-26.

          3. Complete plans and have constructed Memorial at St. Vith by Dec. 16, 15th Anniversary of Battle of Bulge.

     Good luck to Jack Gillespie and Larry Walden in their efforts to strengthen our Chicago group.

CHAPLAIN'S MESSAGE

     Elsewhere in this issue of "The Cub" you will see a request for word of one of the Golden Lion's who fought with us against our common enemy and gave his life on the field of battle that truth and justice might prevail.

     After fourteen years, there remains in the hearts and minds of those he left at home the memory of that loved one and a great desire to know how he lived and how he died when the hour for the supreme test came.

     We thank our Creator for the gift of life; we thank Him for His care, His guidance, His mercy, even unto the hour of death; we thank Him for all that we are, all that we have and all that we hold in honor and reverence.

     As a small expression of our gratitude, while we have life, let us each one of us keep green the memory of those with whom we served from those days at Fort Jackson to those in the Ardennes and beyond, but especially the memory of those who have fallen asleep.

JOHN T. LOVELESS, JR. Chaplain

 

THE LIONS TALE

     The Lions Tale is a book of over 200 pages with short stories, pictures and articles of the happenings of our 106th Div. Many of the stories are the personal accounts of our members.

     If you have a copy, I am sure you value it, if not, you most certainly should get a copy.

     These books however, are not for sale, but can be had by donating $5.00 or more to our Memorial Fund.

     Thanks to Pete Frampton and the Columbus, Ohio group for making copies of the Lion's Tale available.

     The books were printed by the Columbus group for the Seventh convention.

 

CHICAGO CONVENTION

     I am looking forward in the next month or so to see my activities in getting the 12th Annual Reunion promotion transferred into the Chicago area.

     Someone might remark that one or two men can easily do a terrific promotion job; but it ain't that way, fellas. From my experience, a good, sincere, drivin' type hard core group of men can only do what is fair to their own time and the expense those traveling into town incur.

     This little ole "Clambake" for July-'59, is the real tool towards drawing you men in the Chicago back as one united front for the 106th in the Midwest. Your Sherman Hotel, December 16th Dinner was the spark. Now; how's about taking the ball and make us a show a-likin' to none before.

     The most direct way towards an immediate kick-off is to channel your calls through Larry Walden (Phone CHICAGO — FA 4-0157) . Due to Larry's traveling, suggest you limit his number for consolidation to as short a period this early part of 1959 as possible.

     I would like to advise the Association's Board of Directors once you men are off to the races—that they can relieve me of my temporary duties via the Chicago Reunion.

Pick up the phone right now; call Larry. Thanks,

JACK GILLESPIE

LADIES AUXILIARY

     The Constitution for our Auxiliary states in Article III—Eligibility: Membership in the Auxiliary of the 106th Division Association shall be relatives and friends of veterans of the 106th Division.

     There were at least 238 members in the Men's organization last August and only about 40 members in the Auxiliary.

     The dues are only $2.00 per year for members without the CUB and $3.00 with it.

We would be very happy to increase our membership. Won't you join us? The next Convention for the Association will be held in July in Chicago. If you haven't considered it before, why not join we "girls" then!

     Sometime ago we learned of the death of the father of Mrs. Henry (Eunice) Broth, 3917 Duvall Ave., Baltimore 16, Md.

     The members of the Auxiliary join me in extending our deepest sympathy to Eunice and her family.
