THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

          As the cold weather of November descends upon us my thoughts go back 32 years to the Battle of The Bulge. I hope that most members will be able to attend one of the many Memorial Reunions in December.

          Our Adjutant has just informed me that 75 members are delinquent in their dues for 1976-77. If you are one of the men who hasn't yet renewed his membership, do it now, by sending $5.00 to Walt Bandurak, 219% North Maple Ave., Greensburg, Pa. 15601.

          June and I had the pleasure of having Russ and Jackie Villwock, Jim and Clare Henning visit us the first weekend in October. We went to Riverfront Stadium but the Big Red Machine lost.

Please forward to Cub information on your December 16 meeting.

Happy and Fulfilling 1977.

 

 

CHAPLAINS MESSAGE

          Several weeks ago, a friend told me that he thought that man's greatest needs today were personal security, peace in his own land and peace throughout the world.

          He seems to have a point. Granted that we need food to nourish and sustain us; that we need clothing to keep us warm; that we need shelter to protect us from the elements. These things are basic.

          But, we do not and cannot supply our basic needs. We enter the world with nothing. When our brief stay is concluded, we leave with no more than we had when we came into the world.

          Our concern then is the time between life and death. We acquire more or less of this world's goods, not to be ours exclusively, but as a gift from our Creator to be used for the benefit of all as we understand His will.

          Then with reliance on Him our personal security should be assured.

          For over 100 years, we here in the United States of America have known peace within the borders of our own country. True, have had, from time to time, unpleasant experiences with civil disturbances, strikes and the like. Fortunately, these occurrences, in most cases, have been localized. Our tolerance and good will towards our neighbors, with God's grace, will insure peace in our own country.

          As we know from personal experience, peace throughout the world has never been obtained. Thru jealously, greed, cruelty and hate, man belies that we have been created as brothers one to another. Only when men acknowledge the supremacy of our Creator and strive to overcome their failings can we realize the last of these needs, peace throughout the world.

          It is up to us. God has given us the essentials; we must do our part.

"And now. Lord, for what do I wait? My hope is in thee." - Psalm 39:7

BAG LUNCH

(Memorial to Major General Alan W. Jones, 1894.1969)

          Veterans Administration National Cemetery at Fort Indiantown Gap Pennsylvania.

          I had the honor of being invited to attend the site dedication of the new Veterans Administration National Cemetery at Fort Indiantown Gap Pennsylvania on 30 October 1976. The invitation was extended by Richard L. Roudebush, Administrator of the Veterans Bureau Washington D.C. Prior to this appointment Mr. Roudebush had served a number of terms in Congress as Representative of the Indiana District which included Camp Atterbury and Indianapolis.

          The 20th Reunion of the 106th Infantry Division Association was held at the Continental Hotel, Indianapolis 21-23 July 1966 and Congressman Roudebush was our speaker there.

          The cemetery site, located 26 miles northeast of Harrisburg, was donated by the commonwealth of Pennsylvania and represents the first national cemetery established east of the Mississippi in forty years. It is a beautiful location with which I am familiar. Before WW2 I was stationed in Pennsylvania (Harrisburg) as a Captain Regular Army Field Artillery Instructor with the Pennsylvania National Guard. We did the field training and shooting at Indiantown Gap.

          About 30,000 graves will be ready in two years with a final capacity of 300,000. It will serve the states of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia. It is certain to be the final resting place of a number of our Golden Lions.

SORROW

          As each year goes by our ranks grow thinner and thinner. Just received the news of the passing of Charlie Schoch, which was a shocker. We all knew he had some problems but had at last meeting conquered them and was looking forward to establishing his home in Arizona. I understand he was only there about seven weeks when the Lord called him to Glory.

          Charlie had enough energy for two of us but expended it trying to do a good job of everything he tackled. I first got close to Chuck when we took the trip to Europe in 69. No one will ever know the headache and heartache that went into that trip but with helpers like Jim Wells and Chuck Schoch it all came out alright. I know some people thought he was a bit overbearing but they didn't have the headache I gave him. After all buses have to move out on time and luggage has to be ready so that the next destination can be reached. Chuck did a hell of a job and I thanked him many times for it but he was that kind of person. Give him a job and it was done. Look back at the job he did when he ran the Convention in Frederick. No one knocked himself out as much as he did. Instead of delegating the jobs he took them all upon himself. If he didn't have Sherry at his side most of the time he would have burst at the seams but they worked as a team and put on a terrific Convention.

          Chuck will be sorely missed by his many friends and the 106th has lost one hell of a member. Surely he deserves a "Well done, thy good and faithful servant."

          DSC

 

"Dear Friends:         12 November 1976 We bought a house here in Phoenix, Arizona and Chuck had another heart attack on October 27, 1976, only he didn't make it this time.

          I took him back to Ohio for burial. I called Bob Scranton but I wasn't myself. I can't remember whether I told him anything at all except that he died. Chuck was buried on November 1, 1976.

          His step sister-in-law was here with me and I am sure he had no warning—he just crumpled down and died. We gave him mouth to mouth until the emergency squad arrived and then the paramedics were here within 6 minutes after the emergency squad and then an hour in the hospital but it just wouldn't work. He is gone and I wish it had been me instead. He only had 7 weeks here and we just fooled around and weren't even

          "My husband, Arthur C. Buckley, Sr., died November 18, 1975. I am sorry I didn't write before but there was so many things to do and he was such a loss to me and my family. I put a lot of things off that I should have done. Thank you.

23rd Reunion of Service Btry. 592 F. A. Bn.

Sept. 5, 1976

          After 3 straight years of rain and heavy thunder showers on our annual reunions at Hershey Park, Pa. this year the weather was beautiful. It was a little on the cool side but no humidity or threat of rain. When we left Sparta, New Jersey at 6:55 A.M. it was very foggy and cloudy. After traveling 15 miles it started to drizzle (it depressed us) and continued to rain and drizzle for 40 miles and then slowly cleared to a beautiful day, making all of us very happy.

          The picnickers were: Tom & Alice Dorosky, Chuck & Betty Laphan, Nick & Evelyn Schroeder (who traveled from Chicago) & their children Jim, Ann, Margaret & Rosemary, Capt. Charlie & Daisey Walsh. The guests were: John & Kay Loveless, Cathy (Dorosky) & Dick Morgan, Marie (Bette Laphan's sister) & Elliot Kneckt, Adrianne (Daisey Walsh's sister) & Reed Trail, Ray & Kay (Loveless) Kemp & children John, Tom, Brian & guest David Tealph, Althea (Loveless) & Tom Zimmerman & Bu-Bu their dog.

          Again we enjoyed Capt. Walsh's serenading us with country and western songs with his guitar until his voice gave out.    Had it rained Chaplain Loveless and Capt. Walsh were well prepared with their 12 x 12 tarps.

          We were all sorry to hear that Gen. and Wilda McMahon were unable to attend because of Wilda's dental problem. Hopefully you are fully recovered, Wilda.

          We're all looking forward to seeing more members and their families next Sept. 4, 1977. Our reunions are always held on the Sunday before Labor Day.

Best regards,

Emil & Ethel Solecki 

 

CONTACTS WITH GOLDEN LIONS

Middletown Pa. Veteran's Day Nov. 11, 1976.

          Doug Coffey - Last month while he and Isabel were visiting their daughter and family in Neffsville Pa. he phoned us. Doug and I had established a good mail correspondence all these years, but I had to apologize for my poor performance this past year. I will be writing him to confirm reservations aboard the S/S Emerald Seas to Nassau in 1978 after overnight stay in Miami Florida. Wilda and I are definitely interested in this trip. We hope and pray that we can remain alive and well to make it. P Dohoney (C-422) and his wife Josie, w accompanied us to the 30th Reunion at Evansville Ind. are signed up for the 1978 Reunion and Cruise. They are the couple on the front page of the last CUB (Oct., Nov., Dec./76) with Colonel Tom Riggs and the McMahons. The photo was taken in front of Executive House. Several Golden Lions were "shooting" at us and I don't know who was the actual photographer. Nor do I know what censor worked on the sign above our heads.

          Jack Gillespie C-422) - Last month he was in Lancaster, Pa. attending an industrial conference at Armstrong Cork. One evening he had dinner with the Dohoneys in Camp Hill, Pat, was the Plat. Lt. and Jack Plat., Sgt. in the Weapons Plat. of C-422. The next afternoon on his way to Harrisburg International Airport Jack came over and spent several hours with us. Then Wilda and I and my son Col. Leo T., Jr. who was visiting us accompanied Jack to the Airport for his Allegheny Flight to Pittsburgh and Detroit.

          Dick DeHeer (K-424) and Marge. – Last month they had to drive out to Greensburg, Pa. where our new Adjutant Walter Bandurak lives on business connected with the CUB. They were accompanied by Tom Bickford (DHQ) and Flo. On the return trip they stopped overnight at Holiday East Inn from which they phoned to say they would stop to see us in the morning. Dick and Marge have visited us before, but this was the first visit for Tom and Flo. I have known this foursome since the Division Association was organized in 1947 and like and admire them a lot. So does Wilda since she joined the Association in 1954. Tom and Flo are probably the only couple who never missed an annual Division Assn. reunion Stateside. Tom did soldiering right at the top-with DHQ all the way. They are each filled with the Golden Lion esprit.

          Dick and Marge DeHeer are a couple to whom this Association is indebted. There are others too. At one rough period in this history Dick held the offices of President and Treasurer and Edited the CUB too. A grateful Association awarded Dick the medal of Commander, Order of the Golden Lion and Marge a citation and medal of Companion, Order of the Golden Lion

          The old timers are familiar with this history. It is repeated for the information of our newer members.

MEMORIAL

          As your Memorials Chairman I would like to put forth a suggestion. We have a healthy balance in the Fund and use it for Maintenance of our Memorial in Belgium and try to find a project each year to benefit the School on which our Memorial is placed and to keep our friendly relationship with the School and the Town of St. Vith.

          I would like to throw open to the members of the Association the idea of a Memorial to our own General Alan W. Jones. It could be something incorporated in the new wing of the school, a book scholarship in his name, an additional plaque on our Memorial. Most everyone knows our Memorial in St. Vith but I don't think they would connect any of us nor the General with the Memorial. Perhaps this is not what the Association would want but I am open to suggestions. Perhaps someone can come up with an entirely different idea not even connected with the Memorial. Let's see what you can come up with before the next Cub comes out and we can discuss it at length at the Convention in Elyria.

          Doug Coffey COGL

 

Dear Mr. Coffey,

          We were very pleased with your kind letter that we received the 18.08. We are very obliged for your generous present. We are planning to buy books for our school's student-library with your money.

          As to the new building near the monument I wish to tell you that it will be a janitor-house. It is absolutely necessary because the school, to which two new buildings have been added this year, has to be guarded night and day. The janitor will take care of the monument too.

          As I told you in my letter of January 9th, the second half of the monument will be included in this house. I'm sure that the main part, i.e. the part with cross, tower and plaque will be increased in its value because of the planned building.

          Unfortunately the definite plans are not quite finished so that I am not able to present you the definite scheme. I'm sure that the monument will be given a more respectable surrounding because the car -parks will disappear when the house is built Works will probably begin in spring 1977.

          The restoration of the monument can't be taken up before the new building will be completely finished. I'll let you know the end of the transformations on time.

          I thank you again for your kindness and goodwill and close with friendly greetings.

Yours sincerely,

J. PANKERT

director

106 Member Honored

          Federal Judge Lawrence Gubow will be honored Saturday at a Bicentennial luncheon presented by the Men's Club of Shaarey Zedek Synagogue.

          Among those participating in ceremonies to be held at the synagogue in Southfield starting at 12:30 p.m. are Michigan Supreme Court Justice Charles M. Levin and Damon J. Keith, chief judge of the Federal Court in Detroit.

          Speakers also will include Walter Klein, past executive director of the Jewish Community Council and David Gubow, the judge's son.

          Although Judge Gubow has been battling health problems recently, including a serious eye ailment, he continues to serve as a U.S. District Court Judge in Detroit, a post he has held for eight years.

          Gubow was named to the federal bench by President Lyndon Johnson in 1968, after serving seven years as U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan.

          Before 1961 appointment as district attorney, Judge Gubow had served as Michigan Corporation and Securities commissioner from 1956 after joining that agency in 1953 as director of investigations.

          Born in Detroit, Judge Gubow was graduated from the University of Michigan in 1940. Entering the U.S. Army as a private in July, 1941, Gubow earned a commission as second lieutenant in January, 1943.

          He was a company commander with the 45th Infantry in Europe, where he was wounded and captured on Jan. 20, 1945.

          He returned to school after the war, and earned his law degree at the University of Michigan Law School in 1950.

          Last month, Gubow was awarded a Gold Medal of Merit by the Jewish War Veterans at their convention in Florida, becoming one of the few JWV members to receive the organizations highest award.

          The JWV citation indicated that Gubow would have been elected national commander of the veteran's organization except that his judicial post precluded him from holding that office.

          Active in Jewish community affairs, he has II served on the board of governors of the Jewish Welfare Federation, as a director of the Detroit Service Group and Jewish National Fund, a trustee of Sinai Hospital in Detroit and is past president of the Jewish Community Council of Metropolitan Detroit.

 

CAME 2,000 MILES TO SEE GUBOW

          National commanders of veterans groups are accustomed to lots of travel and to meeting many important people.

          No one traveled as far as Dr. Robert Shor, national commander of the Jewish War Veterans did last Saturday when he came to Southfield to honor an old friend.

          "I'm here for the testimonial to (U.S. District) Judge Larry Gubow," the Los Angeles podiatrist said in a breakfast interview in the Southfield home of Robert Perliss, JWV's Michigan commander.

          "I've known Larry for 25 years and consider him a good friend," Dr. Shor said.

 

          For a father or mother, there is nothing like the moment when—and it invariably happens—a child makes a point of saying, "Gee, you know you're great."

          For Lawrence Gubow, a federal judge among other things, that moment was doubly precious because it was done publicly, with about 1,000 people listening.

          Gubow was honored the other day by the Men's Club of Shaarey Zedek, and the highlight of the program came when son, David, was called on to say a few words about his father. As it turned out, there were quite a few words, and when David was through the audience stood and applauded quietly, not wanting to disturb the tenderness of the moment, yet sensing it had been one of the more unusual ones in their lives.

          "We're a very rich family," said David, "rich in the personal things that matter, like love, warmth, compassion," he added,  "because of the example that father, and, of course, mother have set for us."

          There was a warm embrace of father and son, whose relationship has become even

 

9

 


 

closer during the last year when Judge Gubow has faced a tough battle with diabetes. He could hear and feel and react to the tributes of his son and others, but this vision has been impaired.

          IT WAS OBVIOUS, however, that Gubow and the family, including ebullient wife, Estelle, and daughters Janey, who was there, and Mona, who is living in Mexico with her husband, have rallied strongly in the face of this adversity, as families built on warmth and love are want to do.

          Gubow himself was in good spirits when he spoke, making light of his son's tributes but sincerely and publicly thanking his colleagues on the federal bench for the assistance during this period of illness and convalescence.

          "I felt 10 feet tall," he said in acknowledging the words of many who spoke of his deification to the judiciary and the law. And then he reminded his audience that "without justice there is no peace, without justice there is no use to be alive."

          Gubow is a native Detroiter who grew up on the near northwest side.

          "I finally went to Northern High," he said with a chuckle, "because it took two streetcars to get to Central and two to get to Northwestern and only one to get to Northern." He was there in the heyday of Northern's and Eddie Powers' reign in basketball, and when he was graduated in 1936, he wound up at the University of Michigan. He got his degree in 1940, had finished one year in law school when he moved into the Army and fought with distinction in Europe.

          On Jan. 12, 1945, while serving with the 45th Infantry, he was injured and captured by the Germans, and he came home to be hospitalized in April when the Alsace area was taken by the Allies.

          Gubow has been active over the years in veterans' organizations, and at the men's club luncheon, which also took cognizance of the American Bicentennial, he was presented with the Gold Medal of the Jewish War Veterans by Dr. Robert Shor, national commander.

          GUBOW MARRIED Estelle Schmalberg 28 years ago, and they have shared much happiness as Gubow completed his last studies at Michigan, went into private practice, was active in Democratic Party politics, then became United States Attorney in 1961. He was appointed a federal judge in 1968.

          He also served on the Michigan Corporation and Securities Commission during which time he provided the impetus for getting rid of the notorious point-system for ethnics used by the real estate interests in Grosse Pointe.

          Son David is taking after his father politically, having won nomination in the Oakland County treasurer's race in the recent primary, and here, too, there was something of a tribute to his father since David got more votes than any other Democrat in the county.

          Walter Klein, a former Jewish Community Council official, was another who spoke of Larry Gubow's talents.

          "He has an infinite capacity to accommodate to people, to accept them, respect them," he said. "But mostly over the years in which I have worked with him and observed him running many committees, boards and so on, he has always extended and received trust and friendship."

          Gubow is one of those people who have maintained a low profile around this town but without whom it would be much less than it is. The outpouring of warmth and respect at the luncheon served to let him know that a few people realize it.

LETTERS TO TILE EDITOR

Dear John:

          My address now is 4487 Post Place 116, Nashville, Tenn. 37205.

          We have sold our house and now rent an apartment and do I like. No more cutting grass, raking leaves, paying taxes, paying insurance, putting on a new roof, papering walls, coat of paint, gas bills, water bills and I could go on.

          When something goes wrong I just phone the office and say "fix it", sit in a chair and read the paper while someone else does the work.

          Best of all the income from the sale of the house more than pays the rent here.

          Best regards, Vaden Lackey 

 

Dear Mr. Kenneth Bradfield:

          I used to know a Lt. Col. Herbert B. Livesay Jr. formerly Division Chemical Warfare Officer and later Secretary of the Assoc.

          On Oct. 24, 1974 I was hospitalized with a stroke. My entire right is paralyzed. I cannot use my right arm, right legs and my right face. My left side of my head is brain damaged, but fortunately I am regaining my memory back.

Dear Walt:

          In this past week I had a rare opportunity in visiting two old comrades in arms of the 106th. Last Sunday, while en route to our annual meeting for distributors of Armstrong Cork's Ceiling products in Lancaster, Pa.,—I arranged to visit my platoon officer—W.C. (Pat) Dohoney, D.D.S., — Camp Hill, Pa. It was approximately 33 years since I've seen Lt. Pat.,...on the eve of our capture by the German Tank Corp in the Ardennes. I spent the evening with Pat and his wife, Josey, reviewing back to our days at Atterbury—the Manor house in England and those wild days up on the front lines. Pat has become a collector of writings on the Battle of the Bulge. His bookcase is filled with texts on the subject. On my return from the Armstrong meeting, I arranged to visit one afternoon with Wilda and Leo T. McMahon in Harrisburg. I was privileged to meet their son—Col. McMahon—newly retired from the military. We had a grand conversation—intermixed with some of the General's finer liquor. She and Leo again, plan on traveling extensively since his back has healed well. They extend their hello to all the 106ers. I had hoped to have stopped off in Pittsburgh to call our C. O. Ralph Kulzer, but an emergency at home demanded my flight straight home.

Take Care,

Dear John;

          Just received my issue of the "CUB" and I see that the membership is up and that we have one new member from old Service Btry. and I want to take this means of welcoming him to the association, D. L. Russell of Attalla, Ala. is the one that I am talking about. In my last letter I wrote that Kay and I were going on a trip out west, well we took that trip, over seven thousand miles and six weeks later we were back home. We had a wonderful time and there is a lot to see in this great country of ours, the only thing is not enough time to see it all, we could have stayed out there until Xmas, but we had to get back and none too soon. Two weeks after we returned I ended up in the hospital where I had surgery, after spending two weeks flat on my back I am back where I have to take it easy for the next six weeks. Everything else is in good shape, I have the "NEWSLETTER" going again, thanks to Barbara and Bill Dahlen, I was able to get one letter to Barbara before I went into the hospital

 

11

 


 

and I received my copy after my return, I really think that this "NEWSLETTER" is a good thing and I am glad that there are others that share my feelings. This will have to be a short letter, I will try to write more later.

As Ever

Jack

 

Dear Walter:

          Thank you for sharing this excellent publication (The CUB) with me. I know your members must enjoy the informative content as I did, especially the area containing the roster of your members where I found the name of a long forgotten Blue Ridger (80th Infantry Division) who went on cadre to the 106th. I trust you are proceeding with your investigation into the matter of addressing your future issues. I presume you know we here use the bulk mailing permit which costs us $30.00 per year plus 0.02 cents to mail each copy of our 80th Infantry Division newsletter. In comradeship:

Dear Walt:

          It was a great surprise and pleasure to receive your phone call; you sure have a good memory. Thank you for the material you sent me. I was sorry to hear about Lt. Rutledge, Company A, 81st Engineers; I was his driver. I did not see him after I was taken prisoner in Auw, Germany. The article you sent me is incorrect and greatly exaggerated. I was captured in Auw, Germany and not in Shoenfeld. It was nice of you to send the book and the article about Col. Riggs. I am sending you a copy of a story that was in the Post magazine; hope you enjoy reading it; also a copy of the Army news release. Hope to see you at the next reunion. Again, many thanks and hope we can keep in touch. Letter to follow.

          In answer to your question about what happened to me after the Bulge; I was taken prisoner in Auw, Germany along with my good buddy, Robert Estes, from Riply, Mississippi and other comrades on December 17, 1944. We were marched for several days to a Rail Head then in a box car for several days. I still remember the cold in that car. We tore it apart and started small fires to keep warm. On Christmas Day we changed cars and continued on to Stalag 13 C, Hammelburg, Germany spending the next three (3) months there until we were surrounded by our fellow Americans. Then they moved us out and on the road marching for the next month until we were liberated near Munich, Germany. From there I went to Camp Lucky Strike in France for a month with blood poisoning from a blister on my foot. From there home for 30 days furlough then to Lake Placid, New York for R & R.; then on to FORT Hancock, New Jersey where I acted as 1st Sergeant guarding prisoners who were Black Market opportunists; then discharged in November, 1945; the happiest day of my life. Hope this has not been too boring to you. I am now happily married for 26 years with two (2) sons and in the contracting business with a partner. I saw my platoon Sgt's. name in the CUB ne members, Bob Sandberg. I am going to drop him a line to see if he remembers me. Sorry could not get to see you when you were up this way. If you come again let me know and we will get together. I will try to make the next reunion. Again many thanks for everything and nice hearing from you. I would like to buy some emblems and patches if you could help me out. Hope to hear from you soon; I remain

          "Thirty two (32) years ago, T/5 Edward S. Withee, Company A, 81st Engineer Combat Battalion, 106th Infantry Division, was awarded the highest award ever to be bestowed upon an enlisted man in the 106th Infantry Division for his heroic actions in the village of Auw, Germany, during the battle of the Bulge, World War II, on December 16, 1944. Our Association is greatly indebted to

Award of Distinguished-Service Cross (Missing in Action) — II

II—AWARD OF DISTINGUISHED— SERVICE CROSS (MISSING IN ACTION)

 —Under the provisions of AR 600-45, 22 September 1943, as amended, and pursuant to authority contained in paragraph 3c, Section I, Circular 32, Headquarters European Theater of Operations, United States Army, 20 March 1944, as amended, the Distinguished-Service Cross is awarded to the following enlisted man (missing in action):

 

          Technician Fifth Grade Edward S. Withee, 31320179, 81st Engineer Combat Battalion, United States Army, for extra-ordinary heroism in action against the enemy on 16 December 1944, in Germany. In the face of intense and direct 88mm gun fire from four Tiger tanks less than thirty yards away and small arms fire from a strong enemy infantry force, Technician Fifth Grade Withee voluntarily remained at his post, firing his submachine gun to cover the movement of his comrades to more effective positions. Against overwhelming odds, Technician Fifth Grade Withee poured withering fire into the German ranks, enabling his platoon to occupy new positions without casualties. The selfless courage and personal bravery displayed by Technician Fifth Grade Withee exemplified the highest traditions of the Armed Forces. Entered military service from Maine.

Mr. Bandurak:

          As a former member of Company A 81st Engineer Battalion the purpose of this short note is twofold.

          First, to inform you of my change of address which is shown in the upper right hand corner.

          Second, to inform you of two former members of the 106th Infantry Division, Major General James A. Johnson, a former member of the 81st Engineer Battalion who left Fort Jackson, S.C. as a Private to attend the U.S. Military Academy and you can see he has come a long way.

          For my present status I am still on Active duty as the Sergeant Major of the 92D Engineer Battalion at Fort Stewart, GA and plan to retire shortly.

          Hope to see you at next year's convention.

VETERANS

          The nation's veteran population increased by 148,000 during the past year to 29,607,000, the Veterans Administration reported today.

          The largest segment of the veteran population continued to be 13.4 million World War II veterans, down 200,000 from the previous year.

 

IN THE NEXT 200 YEARS?

          We have celebrated our nation's 200th birthday. Now, as we look to the future, we wonder if the United States can continue to have 200 additional years of progress and growth. History reminds us that the aver life of the civilizations of the world has be 200 years. These nations progressed through this sequence:

          from bondage to spiritual faith,

            from spiritual faith to great courage,

              from courage to liberty,

                from liberty to abundance,

                  from abundance to selfishness,

                    from selfishness to complacency,

                       from complacency to apathy,

                          from apathy to dependency,

                             from dependency into bondage!

"Help to make changes so that our nation will not follow this pattern!"

          I was surprised to receive this letter, as I've never been contacted since I left the 106th after being wounded in the Bulge. I was a Staff Sgt. Co. G. 424th Inf. When I.

got discharged I lost contact from the Co. because I was sent back to a General Hospital in the U.S. and discharged. In October 1945 I was reached by a Mr. Morrison at the address that I was living when I went in the service in 1938.

          Am enclosing a check for $5.00 for membership. Hope to hear from you in the near future.

We were kept quite busy from last Thanksgiving till March 6, 1976 when my mother-in-law passed away at age 93. I should have called Mr. Zenn because I really wanted to attend this year. My older daughter, Judy, lives in Falls Church and I am a grandpa with the best 2 year boy you ever seen. Her husband in Sales with Minn.-Honeywell. My younger daughter, Diane, graduate of Youngstown State is a Social Worker. Thanks a million for the resume by Col. Riggs. It brought back many memories.

Am currently building a barn to raise New Zealand rabbits for breeding stock. Hope it works into a fat retirement income. Tell everyone to start eating lots of rabbit. It is fairly inexpensive, non-fattening and delicious. We thank of all the buddies, and the good times we miss at the reunions. It looks as though we will probably have to stay right here, as we are taking on a full time project. If anyone gets into our area, please come by or give us a call. Our phone number is 713-633-0052. I am enclosing a check for $10.00. I sent our dues to Jack, as I did not have your address. So, if you don't really have it, I'm sure you will receive it soon.
