PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

          Having just completed another successful reunion, I tend at this writing to feel quite confident about our prospects for the coming year. Convention attendants appeared to have had a good time together and since that was our goal we feel we reached it.

          And on the very next day we reached another milestone by accomplishing the dedication of our historical roadside marker, setting out for all who pass by, the fact that we were activated there 32 years ago and have taken our place along with four or five other divisions who have similarly publicized their founding.

          So I feel good.

 

          Some organizations are made up of characters, conversely, ours is made up of individuals with character. Character is a combination of what we say, feel, think, believe and do. Woodrow Wilson made a point when he said "If you will think of what you ought to do for other people, your character will take care of itself."

 

          We have many dedicated, participating members and families--some feel talented, some don't--but all could get more involved with each other and for one another. Write each other, visit each other, work up a Dec. 16 meeting, write a letter or an article for the CUB. You might be surprised at how talented you are. We have not to my knowledge been accused of being run by a clique. We do not want it that way. But the way to avoid this is to participate!

With every good wish,

Sherod Collins 

"Our President"

 

BAG LUNCH

Maj. Gen. Alan W. Jones (189401975)

Middletown, Pa., 1 Sept. 1975.

          Congratulations to Sherod Collins, COGL on his election as President of the Association. I regret that we were not present at the Atlanta Reunion to participate. If any- body ever earned the honor he certainly has over the years as national Treasurer and national Historian and this year as Chair- man of the Reunion Committee. Since he did all the planning for the Association with the Commanding General and Staff of Fort Jackson, South Carolina for the erection of the 106th. Infantry Division Marker there, it was indeed appropriate that, as President, he should head the delegation from the Association that went to Fort Jackson on July 21, 1975 to dedicate the Marker. I was elated to learn from Charles Schoch, Service Btry 592 FA Bn. who attended the ceremony that the Marker is located right across the road from my old Div. Arty. Headquarters there.

          As veterans of a combat division of World War II, I hope you Golden Lions maintain your interest in, and support of our present Volunteer US Army. As significant changes occur I try to point them out to you in this space.

          The Honorable Martin R. Hoffmann was sworn in as Secretary of the Army 5 August 1975, succeeding Howard M. Callaway.

          He had been General Counsel of the Department of Defense since March 1974.

          Leo T. McMahon 

 

RETURN OF DELEGATIONS FROM THE ASSOCIATION TO ST. VITH BELGIUM.

(Continued from previous issue of CUB)

 

          Vol. 19, No. 2, Oct., Nov., Dec. 1962 - Memorials Chairman Doug. Coffey Urges Early Decision on 20th Anniversary Pilgrimage to St. Vith. Same Issue - My Story of the Memorial Dedication by Doug Coffey.

          Vol. 21, No. 3, Feb., March, April 1965. As a representative of the 106th Div. Assn.           Douglas Coffey COGL, Memorial Chairman returned to St. Vith Belgium to attend the ceremony commemorating the 20th anniversary at the Division Memorial in St. Vith Belgium on 16 December 1964. This issue contains a detailed account of the ceremonies by Chairman Coffey.

          Vol. 26, No. 1, Oct., Nov., Dec., 1969 - Full account of the return of the 106th. to St. Vith to commemorate ahead of time the 25th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge. The ceremony at the Division Memorial was held on July 20, 1969, where the memorial address was given by Association Chaplain John Loveless COGL.

          Ninety five persons from the 106th, or affiliated with the 106th. attended the ceremonies. Later fifty four persons took the 21 day tour of Europe and 23 persons took the 15 day tour.

          Vol. 27, No. 2, Jan., Feb., Mar., 1971 - Contains a detailed account of a return trip to Europe of two Association members, Memorial Chairman Douglas Coffey COGL and Doctor George Bullard, later President of the Association who died in office. The exact dates are not given, but it must have been in the spring of 1971. They flew to Luxembourg via Icelandic Airlines, then rented a little Renault 4 for the tour of Europe.

          Vol. 28, No. 2, Jan., Feb., Mar., 1972 - Contained an article EUROPE 1971 by Doug Coffey which starts as follows: "I hope that someone who took the trip to Europe with our proud 106ers will write the story of our trip. I don't feel I should cover it each time as you only get my view.

          We did travel under the 106th banner and did perform functions as the 106th, not just a group of Americans on tour." Nobody actually did write the full story of the trip.

          From Doug's short account we learn that the group of 28 persons took off in September flew Icelandic Airlines to Luxembourg, then by bus to Spa. Belgium (a resort town, where Headquarters First Army was located at the beginning of the Battle of the Bulge). There they stayed at the Hotel Canterbury and Hotel Sous Bois.

          The next day the group visited the battlefields under the able guidance of Jim Wells, then moved on to St. Vith to the Pip Margraff hotel where they had a Vin d'Honneur to meet the new Mayor of St. Vith and renew friendship with the former Mayor Wilhelm Pip. When they visited the Division Memorial they found the new insignia was in place on the monument, but the 106th. Division Association lettering had not arrived from Liege. The group reluctantly left St. Vith and moved on to Luxembourg and to Metz, France for the night. We do not have the itinerary from there, but we know they visited Italy and other countries. At the end of his account Doug wrote "Our group is already talking about another trip".

ATLANTA - 1975

          We arrived a day earlier than planned for this year's Convention. We had been on the traveling- circuit for almost a month when Atlanta entered the picture. By coming early, of course; we disturbed their Computer. We had a room and then we didn't. When we finally moved next day to our so-called permanent room the Computer tried to push us out of the room twice. Being mechanically inclined however, I put a monkey wrench in the works and we managed to stay for the rest of the Convention.

          No matter how early one arrives at Convention City there is always someone who is there before you. It was pleasant to greet the early bids and immediately renew the old friendships that have grown and grown these past 29 years. of Conventions. You will always be greeted cordially and generally speaking you will be given refreshments as soon as you can produce a glass.

          The Convention Committee deserves a great deal of credit in putting on an excellent Convention. The Collins, Alexanders and the Howells were the prime movers and they had some small and large artillery supporting their efforts. Is that a way to describe shorty Jean Schutte? That pixy is just a pile of human dynamo and is all over the place. Phil couldn't keep up with her even if he had two good legs.

          I think the group was a bit disappointed as they didn't even get the opportunity to push a bus this time. They were busy pushing other things. The trip to Stone Mountain was well worth the effort. The mountain itself looking like a big whale was impressive itself without the carvings but if one looked hard enough these Southern Boys on those horses were life like and looked ready to run down you Yankees who invaded their soil. The lunch we had to make up for bag lunches was something. Can anyone top the Scranton in a chow line. Bob eats as well as he dances. He is so light on his feet on the dance floor.   Our Lawrence Welk entertainer was kept busy giving equal time to Yankee musk and Rebel music. I think it was a tie. Did you notice everyone sit up and take notice when we all sang God Bless America.

          As has been our custom and one that I think so unusual we had a Memorial Service. The spot was breathtaking and who could fail to be broken up when little 41 Tommy Kemp said "Let's go Granddaddy". He was getting impatient for the program to start and also showing his pride in his Granddaddy, John Loveless. I always tell John he has a queer name. We should not Love-less we should Love-more. May we have Loveless with us as long as we all Love-more.

          It was gratifying to see the greatest turnout for a business meeting in many a moon. So many new faces and the conversation was animated and a lot was accomplished. We are all set to shake up Evansville, Indiana next year and then in 1977 we will be in the Cleveland, Canton, Sandusky area. It depends upon whether Bob Fritz can get Bob Gilder and Jean to work their fannies off or Chuck and Willie Garn. It will be interesting to follow this up and see who gets the bid. Wherever it is we'll have a ball. This gang we have has clothes and will travel. Even if it is a carpet bag we manage to make it.

          I skipped the warm up night but who needs to hear about that. This gang of ours is so warm there is no amount of Air conditioning that can turn it off. The munchies were great. This too was very well attended. I guess we are getting to the point we are afraid of missing something if we don't take part in everything. How about Anna Matthews. Is she a Veteran

or isn't she? She certainly is a story of courage if ever I saw it. And doting Joe and Bruce looking after her like a mother hen looking over her chicks. Our young people's group swelled this year and a finer bunch of young people cannot be found. Speaking of young people, how about Bill Alexander's new wife Carolyn (what a doll) and his twins again Carolyn and Marilyn, the faithful Kemps, Zimmerman's, the Pierce's gals and Joe Matthews grandchildren, Karen Scranton and many more this old mind can't put on paper. Also our new bride and groom, Laverne and Sherod Collins. Spring is coming again.

          Then there was a trip to Underground Atlanta. Had no idea what to expect. Thought it was to be an underground exclusive shopping area but it was the underground for the slaves during the War between the States now converted into whatever you wish to call it. A den of thieves, a den of iniquity, a hippy hang out, Art for Art's sake, Mysterious, Bustling with people of every size, shape and form and mode of dress together with fine Restaurants and hot dog joints. You could do your thing. Some liked it, some hated it, some had no like or dislike but it was something not to be missed. You will talk about it for a long time wherever you sat. It also had Lester Maddox smiling and talking with all and sundry and autographing his famous pick axes and trying to raise money to offset his campaign deficit. Some of the lucky ones managed to find Pitty Pat's porch and returned home with their iron skillets. Look out fellows, they make mighty weapons in the hands of an angry housewife.

          The climax of all our good times together with the chatter, the swimming parties, the room parties, the showing of films and pictures comes at the Saturday night Dinner and Dance.

          We fellows should thank our lucky stars as we have by far the grandest group of ladies you will ever find. To look over our wives and see the colors and styles of dresses, no one could put on a better fashion and beauty show than our own 106th women. It was just dazzling.

          The presentation of the Golden Lions to Jim and Maydean Wells was for me a high honor and privilege and I detected a tear here and there. Especially was this a privilege to be making the presentation usually made by my "Old Man" General Leo T. McMahon. I hope I was able to hold his honor high. We missed him and Wilda very much.

          On to the dance but wait. You can't dance on a sticky floor. Being the 106th we are resourceful and after a sweeping of the deck fore and aft improvisation took over and some jerk was spilling salt all over the floor. It worked out though, didn't it? Now you could hold your sweetie and glide to the music instead of being stuck to the floor or

rug. It took a little replenishment but there were plenty of shakers left over from dinner. There was a lack of salt for the eggs in the morning but who cares?

          Farewell breakfast! How do you say farewell to our gang. I'll say farewell until next year for all of those who didn't get the opportunity to say farewell to everyone. I know all of us missed saying it to someone. It all comes to an end too quickly. We just seem to pick up steam when Sunday rolls around and it is time for planes, buses, taxis and cars and all of a sudden it is over. Where did the time go. Why didn't we spend more time with this one or that one. Why didn't we go here or there.

          That was Atlanta 1975, now on to Evansville, Indiana next year.

D. SC--C.O.G.L.

 

          Speaker Cocke, Dr. Jim Clark (Pres. 1974-5) and Sherod Collins (Pres. 1975-6)

 

 

Dear Gallaghers;

          So sorry that you people were unable to visit with all of us at Atlanta this year; you really missed a good time; hope your schedule will permit you to attend next year at Evansville. From all reports that sounds like another good get-together. You missed some truly mat southern hospitality--our hosts and hostess really deserve a BIG HAND they gave all of us a "Truly great show"! starting with the Thursday evening social hour. This had to be the largest crowd ever for the first night, no one wanted to miss out on the good times and were     checking in by Thursday noon. In fact, rumor has it one couple were so afraid of missing something, they arrived Sunday-- that southern golfing must be something, How about it Schuttes?

          The tours were great, to us especially— gave people the chance to view the area "while leaving the driving to others" and still be able to visit with old friends. Stone Mountain was really quite a sight; the huge carving seen while approaching over 43 feet deep is a sight to behold. In fact, the statement made on our bus was "the only reason the mountain is still here, the Yankees could not carry it up north" well, Jim, I hate to burst your bubble--but Agnes Chase was seen working on that project—New York has room for it. I would recommend to any person in the vicinity of Atlanta to take the extra time and tour the 3200 acre State Park; ride the Cable car to the top—the view is fantastic; plus, all of the other entertaining things to do. And before you leave have a meal at the Inn--Now that is what I call a Smorgasbord; well worth any ones time to partake of.. The "Underground" to us was quite an attraction too; the rock music to anyone over 40 years of age- of which there were a few in our group, was a little too much. But as in any given area; you have to seek out what interests you; we found Ruby Red's the feet stomping and hand clapping to the Banjo players and their sing along was to our liking-needless to say we missed the last bus. Viewing of the Cyclorama was another interest that we liked; a 50 foot high and over 400 feet long painting of the Battle of Atlanta; done in 1865. Then in 1936 thru a WPA grant the addition of soil, shrub, war equipment and life like soldiers were added to the base; it was impossible to tell where the painting ended and the addition began even with the guide explaining it all to you. Saturday afternoon from the women's pool side lunch to afternoon swimming activities was a really leisurely enjoyable time. It kept a person busy running from both pools checking on groups activities; sights at the upper pool to see; Jack Bryant and Marge DeHeer deep in conservation in the children's wading pool; Doug Coffey really getting it from Jean Schutte and Scranton's daughter; such odds--two against one. In the lower pool-- many of the group were in the water, but one gal was seen fully dressed dipping her toes in--next year bring your suit Agnas. Saturday night banquet with all of the wining

and dining brought all out in their "finery". Sunday morning breakfast seen a full house again; gave everyone a chance to say their goodbyes and vowing to be at Evansville next year all be sure to note the date for 1976, a week later--plan your vacations.

          Did all see the surprised looks on the faces of Mrs. Zinn, originally from Canton and now from Youngstown and Mrs. Zoll from Canton--they were school class mates and had not seen one another for years; you can imagine their surprise; hoping husbands would see someone from their outfits and the women come thru—per usual.

          While driving home from convention were still running into 106ers; stopped at a fruit stand to get some of those Georgia peaches—the Saucerman had the same idea. Then near the Tennessee river on Inter- 75 passed the Schuttes'. I don't imagine Jean has recovered yet—she was sleeping and Bob honked the horn so loud and long--her heart probably still not beating regularly yet.

          A little memo to families who had hosted Francoise the past couple of years; received a letter from her last week. I had sent her a graduation gift, little premature it seems. She writes she has not done her "Big written work" yet and so did not graduate in July as expected; but during the summer she is "Furnishing her purse" by tutoring English lessons. I know all wish her well and she will soon have her paper done and get that degree.

          Walt called last week too--he and Lillian were in Elyria returning their nephew, said all was well with them, and would see us in December. Bring your pictures Walt. Speaking of pictures; got my slides back— and was really pleased with my endeavor this year, as all know, my picture taking leaves a little to be desired—gorgeous scenes of nothing usually.

          Thanks again to all of our hosts in Atlanta, you people really did show us a good time and we hope to reciprocate in 1977 when John and Martha Fritz will show all the "Northern Hospitality".

          Sincerely Bob and Jean Gilder 

 

AT THE 29TH REUNION

There was a total of 162 people at the Atlanta Reunion.

          Representing the various units of the Division were the following numbers:

 

81st Engr.             4

Special Troops        3

Div. Hq. Company  1

422 Infantry          14

423 Infantry          9

424 Infantry          18

589 F.A.                2

590 F.A.                3

591 F.A.                1

592 F.A.                2

 

Nine new members joined the Association during this time.

          Some of these were a result of a letter writing campaign untaken by Col. H. H. McKee. Jack Schlesser is still plugging away at his unjoined Service-591st boys. He picked up two more at the convention, one due to his efforts and one who just showed up.

          We didn't have to push any buses, but two of 'em got lost--before we got on 'em this time.

          Hopefully for next year's picnic reunion the weather will be more favorable so more of our buddies and families will attend.

          Best Regards, Emil & Ethel Solecki ENGLAND 1976 There was a lot of talk in the past year or two that the travelers of the 106th would like to take a trip to England and Scotland.

          It was mentioned at Atlanta and a brochure was passed around but no time left in the schedule to talk about it. It carried a plan for 15 days at a cost estimated at today's rates of $985.00. I don't agree with the cost nor the itinerary but at least it was a start. If anyone is really interested let me know by card or letter within 30 days of receiving this Cub and I will either drop it or pursue it with your interest in drop it or pursue it with your interest in mind. A trip can be worked out I am sure for $850.00 for the same amount of time and permit a leisurely trip not a fast overnight here and there. Let me know if you have an interest. Doug Coffey, 947 N.W.

DEDICATION OF 106th DIVISION

HISTORICAL ROADSIDE MARKER

FT. JACKSON, SOUTH CAROLINA

          On Monday July 21, 1975 the Division Association was pleased to accomplish the official dedication of the Historical Marker recently erected on Jackson Boulevard at a prominent point in front of recently constructed air-conditioned attractive brick barracks housing basic trainees.

          It was gratifying to find 27 people on hand since dedication date was announced too late for notification in the CUB. Present were the following: Jack & Karin Schlesser, Bob Ringer, Dr. Jim Clark, Chuck & Sherry Schoch, Charles, Blanche, Melissa & Priscilla Richards, Jim & Maydean Wells, Austin & Myrtle Byrd, Bill -& Carolyn Alexander, Sherod & LaVerne Collins, Dick & Marge DeHeer, Horace Mansfield, Roger Rutland, Mike Serino, Lucy Barbato (sister of Mike), A. R. Hutto, and Ewell & Dorothy Black.

          Ewell Black is due much credit for his dedicated legwork while acting as contact with the Ft. Jackson authorities to arrange approval by South Carolina Historical Department and actual placement by the Corps of Engineers.

          Dr. Jim Clark, retiring president, was responsible for arranging an interesting and meaningful ceremony in conjunction with the Post Public Relations Officer. Participating was the 282d U.S. Army Band.

          Invocation was by Rev. Ewell Black, Jr.  Major General William B. Caldwell III, Commander Ft. Jackson, welcomed the audience and spoke briefly about the division efforts during WWII.

          Jim Wells and Sherod Collins spoke in division efforts during WWII. Jim Wells and Sherod Collins spoke in by unveiling of the marker. After closing remarks by Dr. Clark, the band played the National Anthem, and the General invited the participants to tour the new barracks.

          The Association wishes to thank Gen. Caldwell, his PIO Officer, Major Walton, and the latter's predecessor, Lt. Col. Gerald Roys, and their assistant Mrs. Lois Duke.

          The ceremony was preceded by a pleasant luncheon at the officers club.

          Jim Wells filled in for General McMahon as he was the ranking retired officer present and everything went very smoothly. Following the dedication the visitors were taken thru the new living quarters for the training troops; the new Fort Jackson is certainly something else!

 

FORT JACKSON

          Shortly after World War I the installation was abandoned as a full-time regular Army garrison. When war hit Europe again in 1939, a reorganized 6th Division was ordered to Camp Jackson, leaving in the Spring of 1940 to be replaced by the 30th Division (judged by War Department historians as the best infantry division in WWII, and called Roosevelt's SS Troops by the German troops it mauled). In August 1940 Camp Jackson became Fort Jackson and was designated as a permanent post. Nine Army divisions--the 4th, 6th, 8th, 26th, 30th, 77th, 87th, 100th, and 106th trained at Fort Jackson. In all, more than

half a million American fighting men trained at Fort Jackson during the war.

          In 1956 Fort Jackson officially became the U.S. Army Training Center, Infantry. Today over 90,000 soldiers graduate yearly from the fort's four training brigades. In addition to the training units, the fort is also the home. of the Third U.S. Army Drill Sergeant School and a U.S. Army Personnel Center. A modernization program involving millions of dollars is well underway.

 

IN APPRECIATION

          Dear Friends, May I take this opportunity to express my appreciation to our Chaplain, John Loveless and the Atlanta Reunion Committee for allowing me to have a part in our reunion. I would also like to thank each one who was so gracious to me in expressing their appreciation for my message.

          Truly, this was one of the high spots of my association with both our Division and Association and I shall treasure it. The Resolution was, also, much appreciated although just the opportunity to have a part in the Memorial Service was reward enough.

          My congratulations to the committee, they lived up to the tradition which has been set for excellent reunions. I hope that circumstances are such that I can attend in 1976.

          Faithfully, Ewell C. Black, Jr.

LETTER TO EDITOR

          Dear Sherod:

          I am keenly disappointed that I will not be able to be with you at this year's reunion of the 106th Division. For a good number of years now, I have been running into a conflict and it has happened again this year.

          I see Bob Ringer here in Columbus several times a year and he told me about the grand trip that you all took to St. Vith. You may remember that Bob worked on my committee for the 7th Annual Convention back in 1953 so we always have a few memories to talk about.

          One of the old news broadcasters, that. stood up for the 106th when Drew Pearson took a whack at us, died a few months ago.

          Perhaps you remember Cedric Foster. I seem to recall that both he and Joe E.

          Brown received commissions in the Order of the Golden Lion back in 1946. Those who remember him will be sorry to learn that lie has departed.

          Both my mother and father continue in good health. There may still be a few who recall that they organized the agony grapevine around Christmas of 1944. An interesting sequel to that story came about a year ago when my father was handling the installation of several squash and handball courts for a YMCA up around Albany. The director retold the story about how his father had been in the hospital literally wasting away with depression because his son was missing in action, when he got the word by telephone from D. B., my father, that his son was a PW; the old gentleman literally leaped out of bed and took a new lease on life. The world is still a small place and friends pop up when you need them the most.

          I am enclosing a check for renewal of my dues and a little extra for any memorial fund action that the Association is engaged in I am very sorry that I won't be with you, but give my regards to all the gang.

          Very truly yours, D. B. Frampton, Jr.

 

ORIGIN OF SHOULDER PATCH

          So far as is known, the 81st "Wildcat" Division is credited with starting this custom. This division was organized at Camp Jackson, S.C. on August 25, 1917 and trained on the southeast corner of the reservation near Wildcat Creek. The men of this unit began to wear crude cloth emblems of wildcat heads on their sleeves.

          Distinctive unit patches soon found wide popularity throughout the Army. Our Golden Lion patch has been increasingly revered and duplicated in many forms and sizes by the membership. Members and wives have known to have and display rings, necklaces, stick pins, bolo ties, statues, door-knockers, pictures, crewel pictures, and who knows what else!

 

FOR SALE

          Shoulder Patch, 106 Emblems,   & Lion's Tale.

I AM OLD GLORY

          I am Old Glory: For more than nine score years I have been the banner of hope and freedom for generation after generation of Americans. Born amid the first flames of America's fight for freedom, I am the symbol of a Country that has grown from a little group of thirteen colonies to a united nation of fifty sovereign states. Planted firmly on the high pinnacle of American Faith my gently fluttering folds have proved an inspiration to untold millions. Men have followed me into battle with unwavering courage. They have looked upon me as a symbol Of national unity. They have prayed that they and their fellow citizens might continue to enjoy the life; liberty and pursuit of happiness, which have been granted to every American as the heritage of free men.

          So long as men love liberty more than life itself; so long as. they treasure the priceless privileges bought with the blood of our forefathers; so long as the principles of truth, justice and charity for all remain deeply rooted in human hearts, I shall continue to be the enduring banner of the United States of America.
