The keynote to the growth and effectiveness of our 106th Inf. Div. Assoc. has to be communication. Our survival now, and fulfillment of whatever purpose we have as a unit, is the same as it was for the units and individuals in December of 1944. We must maintain contact and keep open all lines of communication with each other and the association.
As your president, I pledge to visit with, and talk with, as many members as I can reach during the year. Each time I visit an area where I know .a former member of the Division was located I shall try to contact him and report his address and other facts concerning him to the association. I encourage each of you to do the same.
John Gallagher, the Editor of the "CUB" is to be congratulated for keeping this vital pipeline so open and viable for all these years. Let's fill his pages with any items we chance upon. Attendance to any meetings and reunions is another means of renewing the faith and gaining inspiration for trying to follow the example of others who have always done such a fine ic-th of recruitipg. contacting, communicating and attending.
Many thanks to all of you for your gond wishes and considerations It is indeed an honor to be associated with such a fine group.

Several days ago I received a letter with no return address, date, salutation, or signature. It had been crudely typed, with many erasures, strike-outs, misspelled words and grammatical errors, and had been photocopied. At the bottom were listed 20 names, none of which I knew.
The letter began by indicating that it was a prayer of some sort to be sent around 'the world. It first had been said in a South American country and, hopefully, previous letter had circled the globe at least eight times in the past decade.
Specific instructions were given to copy the letter and sent it to 20 people within four days. If the instructions were carried out good fortune would be mine in a few days. Examples were cited: one person received an unexpected gift, another a big promotion, a young woman was reunited with her family, a high army officer inherited a small fortune but because he delayed longer than the prescribed days in sending his 20 copies he lost most of it. Dire misfortune was predicted for those who broke the "chain".
The whole tenor of the letter seemed to appeal to a person's hope for a reward without the need to put forth any effort to justify receiving it. Yet there would
be some cost: the time and work to reproduce the letter and select the 20 recipients; the money expended for stationery and postage; the flooding of the mails, holding up more important correspondence, if each one carried out his instructions.
I confess that I did not copy nor send one letter. To date, my only misfortune seems to have been the fouling of a spark plug in my car. On the other hand, my doctor has just given me a good report.
Both of these could and, probably, would have happened without 'the intervention of the letters.
We read that faith can move mountains; also, 'that faith without works is dead. But I cannot feel that sending those letters would have been an expression of faith in my Creator, myself or my fellow-man; rather it would be a case of wishful thinking. My faith in my Creator, myself and my fellow-man can best be expressed by love. friendship, compassion, mercy, justice and concern for all others, whoever they may be. How about you?
"It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man."

Middletown Pa. 8 Aug. 1974
Members of the Association who, with their wives and children, attend the annual reunions have become so well acquainted that they form a loosely knit Golden Lion family. They share in the joys and sorrows of each individual family. This year the 28th. Annual Reunion at Holiday Inn, Frederick Md. 18-21 July was a joyful time for those present. However sympathy cards were passed around and signed by those present and mailed ' to three regular attendees who were home ill.
It was a time of thanksgiving to welcome back Anna Matthews and her dedicated husband Col. Joe, 422 Inf, who have missed three reunions due to illness of Anna. Although in a wheel chair, she was in good spirits and gave forth the 'same good cheer. We also welcomed our perennial Chaplain, John Loveless 422 Inf. who was Chairman for this reunion and made the preliminary plans, but suffered a heart attack the day after Christmas. Cared for by his wife, Kay, he made a good recovery and came from Baltimore. So did Col. Les Smyth Divarty, of Timonium Md, who suffered a heart attack a week after John, made a good recovery and attended with his wife Fran. Mrs. Alan W. (Alys) Jones, accompanied by her son Col. Al, Jr. 423 Inf and his wife Lynn attended her first reunion since General Jones passed away five years ago. Mrs. Betty Manahan, Blue Ridge Summit Md., widow of our deceased Ordnance Officer Lt. Col. Bill, also attended accompanied by her two sons.
Upon arrival at Frederick we were shocked to learn that the First Vice Pres. of the Assn., Dr. Jim Clark, 590-592 Med, Fennville Mich., had suffered a heart attack. Members of the Board who phoned him were told that he is making a good recovery and will be able to function as the new President, very happy and welcome news. When John Loveless was felled by his heart attack, the tough job of putting the 1974 Reunion together fell to Charles H. Schoch Sv. Btry 592 FA Bn. of Odenton Md. Assisted by his wife Sherry and son Dennis he put in months of work and numerous trips to Frederick, Harpers Ferry, and to the battlefields of Antietam and Gettysburg. Charlie was the Supply Sgt. of his Battery in WW2 and the program he set up and 'then carried out so successfully revealed that he had lost none of the talents and tricks of the old job. In the registration he and Sherry were assisted by another WW2 Supply Sgt., Dahlen of Service Btry 591st FA Bn., and his lovely wife. Charlie also
arranged for some of the best publicity Df any Reunion. The Reunion was on the front page of the Frederick Post each day with a sum-up in Monday's issue of the address of Congressman Lawrence J. Hogan of the Fifth Md. Dist. and Candidate for Governor of the State, together with photos of the award of Order of Golden Lion to John and Stella Gallagher. It was a busy reunion with lots of activity and I am sure those who attended join with me in a heartfelt Thank You 'to Charlie Schoch and his family and assistants.

Again, with the Bickfords the Coffeys took off for the Convention of 106ers.
Everything was fine until it came time to renew the gas tank in order to make Frederick. Would you believe there wasn't a sign of gas for fifty miles. We got off the Thruway once to try to locate some before it came to pushing.
Made it into Frederick on the first exit and the fumes carried us to a station selling an unknown gas — but at least
The warm up was warm in more ways than one. The crowd was large for a Thursday evening, the beer got warm and the potato chips crinkled with the humidity but nothing fazes the 106th. Their spirits were high and old friendships were renewed and new ones made as there were quite a few new faces.
The pool was handy for those unable to deal with the heat. Many of us changed from rooms without air conditioning to so-called air conditioning to no avail. As loner as we all kept cool under the collar. that's all that matters.
The Schochs deserve all the credit in the world for a magnificent Convention. Everything they had to do was done and no foul ups on their part. We didn't even have to push a bus this trip which sets a record.
The 106th has really had the opportunity over the years to visit many places of interest and learn the history of our Country by its visit. I think our visit to Antietam and Harpers Ferry opened many of our eves to just what happened during those hard days of the Civil War.
You could sit there or stand there and picture what went on and the futility of it all.
Gettysburg, of course, was too big to cope with, it was such a battle. But even
then, you could see the snipers in the rocks picking off the sentinels one by one.
Charles H. (Chuck) Schoch
It is too bad we didn't have a recording of Hal Ryder's talk on Friday night. He is President of Galaxy Tours who is working with Doug Coffey on the trip to Europe. in September. His inspiring remarks about our heritage and our feeling overseas and the Europeans' view of veterans was moving. I not,:ce no one Nvallnd. out on his talk which they did do whci tha politician spoke. We should have more Americans like. Hal Ryder.
In his film, I am sure some saw some typical scenes of their previous trips to Ldrey3, ba it as a soldier or civilian. Our speaker was fine Saturday night but a bit long winded and the night dragged a bit. The highlight of course was the honoring of John and Stella Gallagher with the Commander and Companion class respectively. I don't think either knew it was coming and John accepted in his usual fine manner. He is .a very humble man and a fine Chritian. who lives up to his -faith in God.
General McMahon was more than his old self this Convention. Wilda must be giving him a new pill for he acted thy way he did ten years ago. He certainly adds dignity to our pfloc-tation and to our Conventions as a whole. He throws himself into every activity and seems always to be running not walking to all :functions.
John Loveless still holding forth despite his recent heart attack.
We seem to really hit spots for our. Memorial Services. Francis Scott Key would have been proud of John and the 106ers as he brought the service to us. Very impressive and warm as usual. What can I say about the music and other entertainment. The barber shop group was excellent, Chuck's son did his thing which made many ponder, and our juke box king took over and those who were young enough to dance had a ball.
I never cease to wonder when I see Bob Scranton with his little 100 pounds getting out to dance. He is so light on his feet for such a big man.
Notice Phil Schutte forgot to limp when lie danced. Reminded me of one of my old bosses who got drunk and faked a sprained ankle and then forgot during the day which ankle to favor. Phil didn't miss a number, but then limped up to get another drink!
Anna Matthews, Col. Joseph C.
As always, our ladies were just as lovely as can be all spruced up and somewhere to go. I won't report on the social error but those in the know will know what I mean. Shows we have girls that
have good taste.
Did you ever see such a lovely color as Agnes Chase's dress?
Our young people seemed to have enjoyed themselves even to trying to guide some of the old folks around the floor. At least they try, (the old folks, that is). Conventions or reunions whatever you call them are always over too soon. You just get in the swing of things and to enjoy one another's company and it is over for another year.
It's a good thing many of us keep in touch during the year with cards and parties and December 16th get togethers.
Nice of the group to send cards to John Early whom we miss so much, Carol Beals, who broke her arm so she wouldn't have to send cards and to Doc Clarke, our new President. He is up and around and will be an active President but will probably have to cancel out Europe.

"The muffed drums sad roll has beat
The soldiers last tatto
No more in lifer parade shall meet
That brave and fallen few."
Congressman Lawrence J. Hogan of Maryland gave us some thoughts to ponder. He asked what would Benjamin Franklin have to say about the condition of our nation today if he were to return.
What did our forefather envision for the year 1976?
Perhaps we to-day should examine our position on the subjects Mr. Hogan raised.
What does freedom mean to me?
What effect does T.V. have on our lives?
What is freedom of the press?
What does government of the people mean?
What is attitude toward our fellowman?
What does obedience to Law mean?
What is a patriot?
What Literature do we find in our libraries?
How do I show responsible citizenship?
How do I show respect to our flag?
What heritage will we of this generation give to our nation 200 years hence?
Last year at the reunion in Grand Rapids I volunteered to help John Loveless with the reunion in 1974. Little suspecting that John would be incapacitated. I felt the responsibility for taking over the planning and worked closely with John. We have had such a good time at other reunions we felt it was our duty to the association to show our appreciation by giving everyone else a fun time.
T realize I was pretty hyper at tines but it was not personally intended. We do hone the Schutte's made their plane. We would emenially like to thank Bill and Bart" Dahlen for helping at the reunion a+ the most crucial time.
We wanted something for everyone of all ages and it was very gratifying to see the enjoyment of the younger set.
Even with a bad heal I enjoyed the dancing of our era. That music I knew would be appreciated by the ladies.
We are still paving bills and working on our report. The biggest pleasure of the reunion is receiving thank you letten and expressions of appreciation from you who attended and knowing that most of you had a good time. Dennis. Sherry and I are looking forward to seeing you all in Atlanta in 1975 and renew old friendships.

Harpers Ferry, W. Va., July 19, 1974.
Jefferson Rock where some of us younger
members climbed. From this vantage
point you can see up the Shenandoah
River to the west and down the Potomac
River towards Washington to the east, Thomas Jefferson journeyed to Harpers
Ferry in 1783 to view the splendid
scenery from this point.
Harpers Ferry, W. Va., July 19, 1974.
Members of the "hungry and sick bag lunch division" at their famous meal.
While on manouvers the standard meal always seemed to be a bag lunch for the 106th Infantry Division. Actually reunion chairman Charles Schoch arraigned a lovely box lunch for each member. HARPERS FERRY Harpers Ferry, situated on a point of land at the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers and dominated by the Blue Ridge Mountains, was a beckoning wilderness in the early 1700's. By mid-19th century it was an important arms-producing center, with mills, armory, arsenal, and other buildings, and a transportation link between east andwest. John Brown's raid in 1859 and the Civil War brought it into national prominence and eventual decline.
We came and were conquered by the hospitality of Chuck Schoch, his wife and Son.
It is always a warm feeling to meet old friends and renew the fellowship that stands out as a hallmark of the 106 res unions. That tingle of the spine was felt as we observed the colon of the 106th flying high beneath old glory on the Holiday Inn flag pole. Truly we trod on hallowed ground at Harpers Ferry, Antietam, Gettysburg. area of Francis Scott Key °rave and the National cemetery at Antietam. One is awed at the history that took place there.
The bloodiest day in American warfare occurred around the peaceful village of Sharpsburg. Over 100,000 men fought one day and left more than 23.000 casualties. The wounded were cared for by the Medical Corps, Clara Barton, residents of Sharpsburg and others in nearby towns.
The dead were buried in the fields, church cemeteries, or removed by kin for buriel in their home cities and states.
"When we look on yon battlefield. I think of the brave men who fell in the fierce struggle of battle, and who sleep
silent in their graves...Would to God, we of the living could imitate their example, as they lay sleeping in their tombs, and live together in friendship and peace."

John W. Early, Jr., 422 Inf., 9284 Mason Creek Road, Norfolk, Virginia 23503, died on Friday night, 8 August 1974 at the Veterans Hospital in Hampton, Virginia after an illness of more than 15 months.
John was an active member of the Association for many years, served several terms as a member of the Board of Directors, so sewing at the time he was taken ill. He went to Europe on the tour commemorating the 25th Anniversary of The Battle of the Bulge and again with a group of members of the Association in September-October 1971. He and his wife. Frances. attended a number of the Reunions and a number of the Dinners of the Maryland Chapter in Baltimore.
John was good company and he will be missed by all his friends.
We extend our sympathy to Frances and pray God's blessing upon he".
He was born December 11, 1915 and died, on August 9, 1974. The funeral was in the New Hope United Methodist Church, New Hope, Va. of which John was a member. The Rev. Howard C. Smith, Pastor officiated. August 12.
Burial was in New Hope Cemetery. Participating were six active and six honorary ballbearers. He iS survived by his wife, Mary Frances and one brother and one sister.
He was a direct descendant, of Baron Stiegel, who was a wealthy landowner and glass manufacturer in southeast Pa., during the eighteenth century.
The Baron leased land in Manheim, Penna. upon which a/Lutheran Church was built. The rent, one red rose each year. Several years ago John was present to accept the payment of the red rose. It was on this occasion that John contacted the members of the 106th, who live in this area.
"Our prayers" are with you John and Mary.
Martha Sgrignoli, Mike Sgrignoli
Stella and I are grateful to you for the honor you bestowed upon us at the reunion in Frederick.
We serve because of belief that the 106th has something worth while to offer. As soldiers we were given a challenge as individuals to serve in order to bring peace to our nations and the world. This duty did not cease with the wars end but still remains our responsibility.
If we, some 300 strong, can show by our example in our homes, churches, and communities what it means to be a good American citizen, we will be fulfilling our oath to defend our nation at all times and under all conditions.
May each Cub remind us the 106, tho deactivated by the government, lives in the hearts and lives of those who served during her brief history.
A big "Thank you" for remembering Carol and her broken ann. The signatures and Get Well card sent by Gen. and Mrs. McMahon were so appreciated.
I am without my body cast as of 29 July; returning to normal slowly but soon Full Speed ahead and I'm packing for overseas 7 Sept.
Just returned from a 4-day convention at Macinac Island — a great place for a 106th Reunion!
Many reports told me of the perfect handling of all events July 18-21 by Charles and Sherry Schoch. The nicest item being. that Congratulations are due John and Stella Gallagher for the honors they rec'd — the Order of the Golden Lion — and richly deserved.
I managed to type my Univ. drama bulletin and have it on the Press to be mailed this month so will return to a busy Oct. and Nov.
Even tho' I claimed to be ambidextrous, now with 2 hands I sometimes wonder how to use both... with a large yard and a garden any free moments are needed outside and I managed to saw off branches and extra growth with my left hand.
With best thoughts always, Carol W. Beals
Thanks to Pete House, Chuck Schoch, John Loveless and The Frederick Post for photos in this issue of the Cub.
