PRESIDENT JIM HATCH SAYS

 

          Every successful organization seems to have a few dedicated members who have the ability and initiative to get a project started and to keep it going. As we review rosters of our association back through the years, it is easy to pick out the names of those few who saw a challenge in our program and made their mark in the history of our group.

          In the early days we knew that a couple of hard workers were Col. Livesey and Dave Price. In recent times I am inclined to pay particular attention to John Loveless and Doug Coffey. John was our president in '55, has been our very dedicated chaplain for the past four years, and has spent considerable time in handling the complicated legal details of transferring our place of incorporation from the District of Columbia to the State of Maryland for reasons of economy. Doug Coffey was our president in 1956, and it was he who presented the idea of building a permanent memorial at St. Vith. He had the structure designed, contracted for its construction, and has supervised all phases of the project even to the extent of traveling to Belgium at his own expense. He will have the honor and will do us the service of returning to St. Vith next spring to see that the plaques are installed, the landscaping completed and dedication services held. The board of directors voted to pay $500 toward Doug's expenses for this trip. It is always dangerous to pick out a few names for recognition. Surely the Bickfords, Byrds, DeHeers, Framptons, Gallaghers, Gillespies, Gubows, Kellys, McMahons, Schnizleins, Wells as well as many others who have worked on membership, conventions or held active offices all deserve our thanks. The least that any of us can do is to keep our own membership current and help to keep those whom *- we know personally on the active roll. • Will you please review the most recent membership roster (appearing in this issue) and contact those of your personal acquaintance who are missing?

 

ABOUT OUR COVER PICTURE

          In 1943, he was just a name to most of us. In 1944, he had become a task master for all the training we were undergoing: a sincere one, evidently, but too remote to be more than a name to most of us (although your editor recalls a short discussion of aircraft identification when he was not so remote). As the years have gone by, he has become more to all of us - a mainstay of our organization, a revered personality, and an "old man" whose insistence on perfection in our training period meant at some time or another to nearly all of us, literally the difference between life and death. Our sincerest good wishes to you and your good lady, sir.

REPORT ON SAINT VITH MEMORIAL

          I have sent $200.00 to Belgium to take care of lettering the plaque and beautifying the grounds around the Memorial so that it will be in good shape for the Dedication.

          I plan to go to Belgium in May and dedicate the Memorial on May 30, 1961, Decoration Day. I feel this would be more fitting than picking just a "day" and say this is it. Memorial or Decoration Day has significance here in America.

I shall make all the necessary arrangements and try to keep you informed. This is not my project, but the Association's, and it shall be kept that way.

          I might also state that any member who is able to be in Saint Vith at this time I would welcome to take part. There are some persons who indicated they might possibly make it. Anyone wanting to go with me or join me there can get in touch with me beforehand.

Douglas S. Coffey

 

ANNUAL REUNION OF SERVICE BATTERY, 592d F. A. BN.

          One of the most loyal and devoted groups in the Division are the veterans of Service Battery 592d. Bn., and their wives. We believe that Tom Dorosky and Emil Solecki were the committee of two who originated the project, but on Sunday 4 September, 1960 they assembled for the seventh consecutive year at Hershey Park, Hershey, Pennsylvania. They always meet there the Sunday before Labor Day. In addition to the usual group from Pennsylvania and New Jersey, this year they had members and their wives from Kentucky and Wisconsin. While the youngsters enjoyed the rides and other attractions of the Park, their parents sat around and revived memories of other days over food and refreshments. Those present:

Bernard and Yetta Caplan, 2524 Loyola Southway, Baltimore, Maryland;

Thomas and Alice Dorosky and three children, Mt. Airy Rd., R. D. No. 1, Trucksville, Pa.;

John J. and Louise Eyler and one child, 413 Fairview Ave., Waynesboro, Penna.;

Thomas R. and Mary Fox and two children, 128 South Washington, Greencastle, Penna.;

Charles and Betty Lapham and one child, 5 Whitehorse Pike, Lindenwold, N. J.;

Frank and Therese Maloney and two children, 231 Wolf St., Philadelphia, Pa.;

James V. and Violet Malesky and one child, 173 Craig Drive, Greensburg, Pa.;

DEHEER'S HOLD ANNUAL

LATE SUMMER FROLIC

          Under blue skies and the warm sun, the New York and New Jersey group got together for a picnic at the DeHeers.

Fun was had by all, especially when some of the men and women tried to get into the DeHeer's swim suits. Linda Rossi made it into one of Marge's and felt slim the rest of the day.

          Forty eight attended, with Patty O'Rourke and Ricky, Tom Bickford's nephew, making the hit of the day. Kathy O'Rourke succeeded in getting into the pool, pants and all; but no one had the nerve to push Pat in. The fellows thought they were back in England because Dick didn't have the beer cold

(Dick adds that they didn't complain about the roast beef, hot dogs, corn, or salad. They must be still trying to make up for the meals they missed as 106ers).

 

NEW YORK CITY GROUP'S

BULGE ANNIVERSARY DINNER

          In case any of 'out of towners' want to come into New York City on Saturday, 17 December for the Anniversary dinner, please get in touch with Jerry L. Frankel, 777 Foster Avenue, Brooklyn 30, New York. He will be glad to put your name on the mailing list.

 

FROM THE EDITOR'S DESK

          In this issue appears a list of contributors to the Memorial Fund. There has probably not been a month since the inception of the Association without its contributors to the Fund. A most important contribution cannot be listed or sufficiently recognized, however: the generous and willing contributions of time and effort by our Memorials Chairman, DOUGLAS S. COFFEY, to bring our Memorial to completion. It remains now for us, the membership, to provide for the dedication ceremonies of which Doug has written briefly elsewhere. We print in this issue a first list of pledges made thus far to the fund for dedication expenses. We urge every member to consider this fund in his Christmas giving. Send your pledge in now; it will be collected in April.

          If your name does not appear in the list of paid up members (and you have not sent in your dues since October first), send $5.00 now to Dick DeHeer. The fellowship you find in the Association cannot be found elsewhere at any price. Keep up with the doings of your wartime buddies and keep them informed of yours through the columns of the CUB.

          We regret that we are not publishing a column for the ladies in this issue. Copy did not arrive in time to be included. We hope that the ladies will find many things of interest in the remainder of the CUB, however.

          Elsewhere in this issue, Henry Broth reports on the cost and time schedules involved in getting to our Fort Worth convention next July from the Upper East Coast. We hope that everyone in that area who is either a sure participant or a possibility for travel by either means Henry suggests will get in touch at once with either Henry or the Editor. We want to make '61 in Fort Worth a big thing. We know that Henry and our chaplain, John Loveless, will also have big things planned for Baltimore in '62.

 

TAPS

          Word has been received of the death of Thomas F. Dowgin of Milltown, New Jersey on September 3, 1958. The unit in which he served in the 106th is not available.

We have received word from Mrs. John W. Daniel, 2255 Country Club Drive, Montgomery, Alabama that her husband, John W. Daniel, 806th Ordnance Battalion, passed away on April 20, 1960 of a cerebral hemorrhage.

          Mrs. E. W. Sprenkle, 1933 Germain St., Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio writes that her son, Pfc. Robert Louis Sprenkle, Co. B, 423rd Infantry, who had been reported to the Association as a contact by another member, died in a German Prisoner of War Camp on February 23, 1945.

Our sympathy goes to the families of all of the above.

IN THE CUB — 14 Years Ago:

          Former Sgt. De Giovanni, DHQ, (JA Section), and former Lieut. Col. Paul Killmer, Division QM, have each received Regular Army commissions as First Lieutenants.

          Lieut. Col. Meyer S. Belzer, Division Surgeon, has returned to his civilian practice in Minneapolis. Col. Belzer was awarded the Legion of Merit and Bronze Star.

          Pfc. Henry M. Broth (I 422) Purple Heart, Combat Infantry Badge, put in some time at Stalag IV B. He is an accountant and is living with his wife and son at 3400 Oakfield Ave., Baltimore.

          Question: Did the 81st Engr. Bn. ever receive the Presidential or Unit Citation?

          Answer: The Distinguished Unit Citation was awarded the 81st Engr. Bn. by WD GO 100, published in November, 1945.

          Louis L. LeTellier, Jr., writes: I am deeply appreciative of the interest of the Association in all of us who fought with the Golden Lions. The CUB is, I think, just what it should be. I read every line of it.

          Memorial Fund Contributions to date: $516.05.

 

MY THIRTY-SEVENTH BIRTHDAY

          Here is the story of my thirty-seventh birthday.

          When I was about ten or twelve years old, a friend of the family looked at my palm, told me that I had a very short life line, and that I would never see my thirty-seventh birthday. Well, what does that mean to a kid of ten or twelve?

          Now, we move to the first week of December, 1944, (You see, I was born on December sixth, 1907). Division Headquarters Company Motor Pool where I spent my 106th career was loaded on LST's at Weymouth, England on December second, 1944. The next day we crossed the Channel. We anchored outside of Le Havre that night. The next morning when they gave the order to up anchor, one of our drivers who was standing at the bow of the LST asked one of the deck hands what the extra weight on the anchor chain was for. There, fouled in the chain and suspended by one of its spikes, was a mine containing about seven hundred and fifty pounds of TNT. You know what went through my mind. It went back about twenty-five years. I kept thinking what that friend had told me.

          It took about half a day to free the mine from the anchor chain. We sailed up the Seine River to Rouen where I drove ashore on my thirty-seventh birthday. As you know, I'm still here and without a scratch.

—Tom Bickford

 

EXPLANATION OF WAR ORPHANS ELIGIBILITY FOR EDUCATIONAL BENEFITS

          As Memorials Chairman I feel it my duty to ask that you include the following item that might be of interest to next of kin of 106ers.

          One third of the eligible young people are failing to take advantage of the War Orphans Education Act due to a misunderstanding of the law. There are three major misconceptions.

          1. Many of the eligible young people fail to think of themselves as orphans while one parent is still living. But the law regards the children of a parent who died from a wartime service-connected injury or illness as orphans even with the other parent alive.

          2. Eligible children who have married oft-times consider themselves no longer eligible for the educational privileges. Yet marriage has no bearing upon eligibility under the War Orphans Education Act.

          3. Some eligible children believe that they may pursue training only at the college level under this law. VA points out that institutional training may be pursued for various occupations in the vocational and technical field.

          Furthermore, an otherwise eligible orphan who serves in the Armed Forces for a period preceding his 23rd birthday may still take advantage of the provisions of the War Orphans Education Act within five years after his first release or discharge and prior to his 31st birthday.

—Douglas S. Coffey

 

BAG LUNCH

(By A.W.J.)

          Since the comparatively quiet days of summer, the pace of national and world events has accelerated with increasing tempo. It has made errand boys of news reporters as they run from press conference to press conference with time only to copy a tornado of words. Columnists and news analysts must prepare their material for the next deadline, or it's as stale as their jokes. There is no time for thought, checking, and evaluation. At least that is the way it appears to be from daily reading of spot news and columns. But are political developments actually occurring so rapidly, or is our bewilderment the result of the tremendous out-pouring of propaganda, all designed to convince by quantity and repetition?

Read the following and consider it:

          "Turning to the question of Germany, and the unification of the truncated Reich, there is unanimity in the West on the position that Berlin is part and parcel of the German problem in toto, and that they cannot be separated. There may be no decision involving Berlin unilaterally.

          "It is also agreed that the Western leaders should find out what Nikita Khrushchev means by peaceful coexistence. Does he mean this idyllic state of affairs to be defined as the West would define, or does he believe it means a situation in which there is no opposition anywhere in the world to a militant Communist philosophy? "There was an editorial today in the London Daily Express, which coincidentally appeared on the 15th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge; two days ago in 1944 the Germans struck the American lines in the vicinity of St. Vith. Yesterday was the in-between-day for the 106th Division. All along the line in southern Belgium, near the Luxembourg border, the German columns spewed death and destruction. The 106th Division had never been in action before. It was composed for the most part of very young men, who had been stripped of their junior officer personnel (which had been used for replacements in older divisions), resulting in men entering battle under command of men whom they hardly knew. When the panzers and German infantry struck, these youngsters fought as best they could, but the power and weight of the attacking units crushed them into small pockets and they were forced to surrender.

          "If fault there was, it is to be found in the decision made by the men who put the 106th into line on a front of the size to require three divisions and unbacked by reserves. It is what is known as a calculated risk, just as America is teaming up today with West Germany in a calculated risk, because never before have Germans, West or East, North or South, ever been on our side. Always they have stood against us.

          "The Daily Express said today While German strength is being rebuilt, Germany is being defended by British troops. It is easy to understand American policy towards Germany. "The United States is building up a front against Russia, but what a strange policy for Britain to take part in. To build up Germany again, to mobilize Britain's strength and money in order to bring back to life a nation that has twice challenged Britain in battle, whose objectives are abhorrent to the British people. These words were read by the British people today, and they reveal that there is still a deep current of feeling against the Germans."

printed yesterday. But it was not. It

 

          The above might well have been copied from a newspaper or magazine

is a portion of Cedric Foster's broadcast of almost exactly a year ago. It demonstrates, we believe, that the problems confronting our Nation do not change a great deal from year to year, only the propagandists and their style and location change.

          Just as the mistakes of the formation and organization of the defenses of the Bulge are excused by their authors as a calculated risk, so do the more recent authors of national policy often rely on the face saving excuse of the calculated risk. The dip in the prestige of the United States was started with the launching of Sputnik and was speeded in a series of rocket-like thrusts by the U-2 incident, the complete wreck of the Summit Conference, the Tokyo riots, the collapse of the Disarmament Conference, the venomous mouthing of the Cuban wild man, and other events which have undoubtedly occurred be- tween the writing of this column and its publication.

          Our embarrassment of the U-2 flight came, not from the flight itself, but from the timing and the incoherent and contradictory explanations. This flight was undoubtedly a calculated risk, as were the Ardennes defensive arrangements, but it most assuredly gave cunning Kruckie a stratosphere-sent grievance on a silver platter without risk, calculated or otherwise, to break up a meeting in a manner which, for the USSR, contained far better propaganda than the meeting could possibly have given.

          Our newly elected President will be faced with an abundance of leftover problems in addition to those which are certain to come in the immediate future. We, all of us, pray that by constant attention to duty, the appointment of competent assistants, and with good judgment and good luck, he will lead us to our rightful place in the World.

 

GOLDEN LIONS I HAVE SEEN OR HEARD FROM IN 1960

 

          In May enroute to visit my son at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, Mrs. McMahon and I stopped over at Springfield, Illinois. There our genial and popular Division Chaplain, Father John B. Day and his mother entertained us at dinner. Later we inspected his new church, St. Cabrini's, new school and his house. There we were joined by Colonel and Mrs. John Ketterer, Division Dental Surgeon, and their daughter Connie. Their daughter has become an expert horsewoman and appears in horse shows throughout the Middle West. For that reason they were unable to attend the Division reunions.

          Upon our return home, found a letter from Colonel A. D. Reid, who commanded the 424th Infantry. He is retired and lives at 105 Alameda Padre Serra, Santa Barbara, California. Late in June we attended a memorial service at the 29th Division Artillery Armory in Pikesville, Maryland. There we met Colonel and Mrs. Lester Smythe, who was S-1, S-4 on my staff all through the war. Later he and Mrs. Smythe took us out to see their beautiful new home in Timonium. They said that John Warren, who was my ADC, had visited them the week before, John is an attorney in his home town of Red Bank, N. J., a member of the firm of Parsons, Labrecque, Canzona & Blair.

          In July we attended the 79th Division Review, followed by luncheon at Indiantown Gap Military Reservation.. There we saw Lt. Col. Alan Dunbar (422 Inf.) G-1 of the Division pass in review as a member of the staff. We checked carefully and found he was wearing a Golden Lion on the right shoulder of his uniform.

          In September I was on the street in Harrisburg when a man came up to me and asked if my name was McMahon, and did I command the artillery in the 106th Division? He, was-Earl Wilson, 2916 Penbrook Avenue,

Penbrook, Pa. (adjoins Harrisburg) and he works for Phoenix Steel Corp. here. He was in Defense Plat. of Division Headquarters Co.

          Last week I was at Olmstead Air Force Base, riding with an official in an official car driven by a civilian. I asked the driver if he'd been in the service. He replied "Yes, in World War II with the 106th Division." He joined us as a replacement after the Battle of the Ardennes and was assigned to Div. Hq. Co. He is Elwood Welker, R.D. No. 1, Halifax, Penna. He is in the Motor Pool Branch at Olmstead Air Force Base as a Mobile Equipment Driver Tester. Perhaps Tom Bickford remembers him.

—Brig. Gen. Leo T. McMahon

CHAPLAIN'S COLUMN

          A phenomenon, peculiar to this great nation of ours, has occurred within the past few months. In many places on earth we find the same fervor, the same passions, the same oratory, the same promises made (but no pitifully few to be kept!), the same charges and countercharges that are in evidence every four years in these United States.

          We now are in the midst of these happenings. Between the time of this writing and its appearance in print, the issue will have been decided. Except for the most unusual of circumstances, it will be either Nixon and Lodge or Kennedy and Johnson. Depending upon our preference, we shall be elated or disappointed at the results of that first Tuesday after the first Monday of November.

          But after a few days we shall settle down once more. The heat of the campaign will subside, we shall take up again our role of citizen of our Land. And here, I know, is the difference between such happenings here and such happenings elsewhere: we are a people united in the belief that despite any controversies between us as individuals our country deserves our un divided loyalty at all times. By maintaining our ideals, by exerting our every effort to advance justice and truth at home and abroad, by being a brother to all men, we can and do express our loyalty.

          "Hear, for I will speak noble things, and from my lips will come what is right; for my mouth will utter truth; wickedness is an abomination to my lips." —Proverbs 8:6-7.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Dear Wayne:

          Congratulations on your first issue of the CUB. It was tremendous, and enjoyed reading every line of it. Keep this kind of a CUB up, and the 106th Association must grow.

          Following is information I have gathered from Greyhound Bus Travel Bureau and American Airlines for group travel from New York, Newark, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington to Fort Worth.

          By Greyhound Charter Bus, either 39 passenger, pro-rated for 35 people or a 40 passenger Scenic Cruiser, prorated on 40 people. The bus would leave New York Sunday morning, July 23 with stops enroute at Newark, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington to pick up passengers. We would arrive Fort Worth on Thursday, July 27 at approximately noon with stopovers each night at approximately 6 to 7 P. M. for overnight accommodations. Returning, the Charter Bus would leave Fort Worth Sunday, July 30 at noon and arrive New York City Thursday afternoon, August 3. The charter bus trip (round trip) including Hotels enroute both going to Fort Worth and returning to New York would run approximately $120 per person.

          By American Airlines from Washington to Fort Worth-Dallas via combination jet coach and first class service, cost approximately $140.00 per person round trip including tax, etc. An example of the schedule would be to leave Washington Thursday at 11:00 A. M. (EDT) and arrive Fort Worth-Dallas at 1:00 P.M. (CST). This flight is only available out of Washington. Another flight leaving New York at 10:15 A.M. (EDT) and arriving at Fort Worth 3:15 P.M. (CST) would only cost $133.55 per person round trip. This is a DC-6 coach flight. Lunch is served on either of the above flights after Washington. If enough people are interested in either of the above flights and would like to go in a group, we can possibly get the fare reduced a bit. Of course all tickets would have to be purchased at one time at one point. Individual return arrangements can be made, to allow anyone who wants to stay longer to do so. As a matter of fact, anyone can return whenever they please. They do not have to come back in a group.

          Wayne, if you will publish the above trips in the CUB, and have a consensus of opinion from members of the East Coast who would be interested in going sent to me, I will tabulate them and advise you as to the results so that they can be published in the next CUB, and also get some concrete arrangements made so we can all go to TEXAS.

          Of course, as you realize, this is for the East Coast members and those in the Midwest and farther would have to make their own similar arrangements. With either of the above flights, I would mention in the CUB, the space would have to be reserved. fairly early in advance to insure our traveling together. Can't you just imagine the ball we would have.

          I expect to contact John Loveless within the next week or so and drive down to Annapolis to see what we can arrange for '62 in Baltimore.

With best wishes from Eunice and myself,

Henry M. Broth

 

Dear sir:

Dear sir:

          My name is Jim Edwards, and I am ten years old. I collect army patches. I want a Golden Lion patch real bad. My daddy, who is at Fort McClellan, said that if I would write you, you could get me a 106th Division Patch. If you need some stamps to send it, I will send you some.

Your friend,

Dear sir:

          I am endeavoring to-obtain a copy, photograph, or sketch of the 424th Infantry Regimental insignia. I would be indebted to you if you could refer me to the proper person or organization that could provide me with the information I am seeking.

Very truly yours,

George Call,  (B 424)
