PRESIDENTS MESSAGE

 

          Another very success reunion is now behind us, and special thanks to Russ and Jackie Villwock, Jim and Clare Henning, Bill and Florence Lucsay for a job well done.

          It is indeed a great honor to have been selected as President of this fine organization for the coming year. I trust that with your patience and God's blessing we can have another successful year. I offer my congratulations to the newly elected officers, and my sincere appreciation to those who have accepted appointment to the non-elective positions.

          A number of new members were in attendance at this our 33rd reunion, and to them I extend a very heartfelt welcome. We will look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at the 1980 reunion.

          At the Board of Directors meeting, Walt Bandurak reported our membership at an all-time high of 440. This seems to indicate that our existence is becoming more widely known, and that a greater effort is being made to reach out for new members. I urge each of you to try to contact a former member of the 106th Division and see if we can continue to build our membership.

          Let's make 1980 the "ALL TIME HIGH."

          As most of you know, plans are well underway for our 1980 reunion to be held in Hot Springs, Arkansas on July 17 - 20. Mark your calendars and join us again next year. In the meantime, keep your letters going to the Cub Editor, John Gallagher, so that we may keep the "life line" open through-out the year.

          Sincerely.

          Fred Chase

 

CHAPLAINS COLUMN

          My advancing years have entailed considerable writing, but the task of preparing a Chaplains Column is a brand-new experience and challenge.

          This section of the Cub necessarily must be brief. I hope that its contents will not compare unfavorable with the splendid, sometimes deeply moving observations of our past Chaplains.

          The scope of appropriate topics is great, but my objectives will always be to point up matters that invite serious reflection, to stir our conscience, hopefully to strengthen our faith, and at least occasionally provide incentives for more concrete action.

          Such a subject now in the news is the Vietnamese "boat people". Our generation has lived with more than its fair share of man's inhumanity to man, —the Nazi holocaust, the Siberian camps that claimed millions of lives, and the continuing genocide of tribes in many African states. As I write, tens of thousands of these gallant, destitute Vietnamese are at the mercy of the sea in small, open boats, with no acceptable destination. Other hundreds of thousands are in refugee camps in neighboring but inhospitable lands, where death of at least the very young and the very old is almost a certainty.

          In the eyes of communist ideology, their misdeeds are great—they want to live in freedom and peace. Perhaps their greatest crime is that they have been our staunch allies in an often - bungled, bloody war against a Godless totalitarianism.

          We should recall that many of our forebears faced similar conditions in their efforts to reach and establish a free America, and for almost exactly the same reasons. Certainly, we should not stand by while as the poet Longfellow once put it "the winds of hate, merciless and blind, drive o'er the sea, that desert desolate, these Ishmaels and Hagar’s of Mankind." We can do something about it. We have the resources and logistics to partly remedy this tragic situation.     Yours letters to the President and Congress will help. Though ten thousand miles distant, we are our brother's keeper.

          Joe Matthews

CHICAGO 79

          The gas shortage took its toll on the reunion this year, as it might on future ones. With only 90 persons registered by July 14th for the reunion this year, it looked like all the plans that the Henning’s, Lucsays, and the Villwock?--made were going to be cut in half, plans were made for about 20 persons.

          It is very difficult to cancel buses, release rooms, and change menus-then try to increase them to accommodate people that didn't make advance registrations.

          By late Friday afternoon we had 150 signed in and 182 for our Saturday Dinner/Dance. Of the preregistered, Jack and Karin Schlesser couldn't attend as I hear that Jack fell down the stairs getting ready to come to Chicago. I hope by now Jack Is up and about. George and Dorothy Rinkema didn't make it either. As of this writing I haven't heard what happened to them.

          From comments at our farewell breakfast Sunday morning, those that attend had an enjoyable time. The tour of Chicago, with the stop at Sears Tower was breathtaking from the 102-floor observatory. The memorial service by Father Boyle at Cantigny, I'm sure was reverend to all and in keeping with

Our thoughts of our departed comrades. My thanks to the young people that added so much to our Memorial Service - great talent. Some of the local people that hadn't been to Cantigny before are making plans to spend some time there at a future date.

          Both Friday and Saturday before- dinner cocktails were served in an outdoor garden in the beautiful sunshine we had for the four days of the reunion.

          Friday after dinner we were entertained by a fine young Barber Shop quartet that had us all up and down in our seats. Then our next year's host the Arlington Hotel in Hot Springs, Arkansas treated all to a wine and cheese tasting party.

          Saturday's after-dinner speaker was really great and sure had everyone fooled. The dance band was so good that the floor was still crowded when they quit at midnight.

          Received close to 100 inquiries requesting information on this year's reunion as a result of the article that was published in the VFW, American Legion, P.O.W., Army Times, and the Retired Officers magazines. Of those over 30 have joined the association with 5 attending the reunion. My thanks to one of the girls at the office for all of the time she spent typing my letters which sure was a big help.

          Financially, we didn't do so good, but we didn't do bad. Our loss after all bills have been paid is $32.15 which I took care of personally.

          We still have 18 ladies and 28 men's Bolo ties left. If anyone would like one, let me know. They are $5.00 each.

          When they are sold, that should be our profit for this year's reunion.

          I would like to thank Clare and Jim Henning, Florence and Bill Lucsay, and my wife Jackie for their many hours spent in planning and their many hours spent in carrying out those plans. They did a super job and were great in carrying out some of the unreasonable demands which I am sure I made on them.

          All I can say is thanks for a wonderful job well done.

          I know one thing - there are six people that are looking forward to a great time without any problems in Hot Springs, Arkansas next year.

          Russell Villwock

          1979 Reunion General Chairman

106th Infantry Division Association 

1978-79 Old Board of Director's Meeting

Oak Brook Hyatt House

Chicago (Oak Brook), Illinois

July 19, 1979 (Thursday, p.m.)

          The meeting was called to order by President Robert Scranton at 7:15 p.m. Roll call was taken and all were present except: Douglas S. Coffey, Horace E. Mansfield, Leo. T. McMahon and Joseph F. Puett.

          President Scranton stated that he was pleased to have served the Association as President during the past year. He stated that there are several problems that the Board must resolve. We are high in membership and he complimented Sherod Collins on getting the money into our treasury. We have our next Convention to discuss in detail. He pointed out that John Gallagher has done an outstanding job as Editor of the CUB. He also thanked Russ Villwock and his committee for doing an outstanding job in getting this year's Reunion into very good shape.

          Minutes of the Directors meeting held In Fort Lauderdale, Florida were read and approved.

          Reading of Communications-It was announced that several letters received were already posted on the bulletin board for our membership to read. Rev. Mosley's letter was read stating that he will be showing his movies which he took during his December 16th trip to Belgium. President Scranton read Doug Coffey's letter in which he advised cancelling the trip to France and Belgium in September, 1979 due to the fact that the trip would be very expensive and not too many members have signed up for the trip. Doug further stated that he was against a dues increase but would accept a $2.00 increase. Also that the 106th Car Plates are available at this reunion for $2.00 each.

          Adjutant's report indicated that a total of 16 members (14 members • 2 Associate members) were dropped from our membership due to nonpayment of their dues for 1978-1979. He further reported that we had 397 renewals, 3 reinstated members, 21 new members and 19 Associate members for a grand total, and a new high. of 440 members: an increase of 7 over the past year Our auxiliary membership is at 134; a decrease of 9 over the past year and that 112 members contributed approximately $797.00 to the MEMORIAL FUND DURING THE YEAR. Sherod Collins and Russ Villwock stated they contacted the 16 delinquent members and had no further replies from them.

          Treasurer's report showed a new decrease of $2225.16 in the General Fund with a balance of $1988.03. The Memorial Fund showed a net increase of $1379.60 with a balance of $7855.75. We have a cash balance in all accounts at the end of the 1978-79 year of $9843.78; a decrease of $845.56 from the previous year. It was revealed that we are in financial trouble relative to the General Fund due to the CUB expense (printing & postage) of $4674.94; basically due to the high rate of inflation. At this point much discussion took place on the specific reasons for the increase of the CUB. A motion was made by Sherod Collins, seconded by Dr. Clark, that the interest earned from the Memorial Fund be applied to the General Fund. Motion was approved unanimously. Suggestions were made that: (1) Dues be raised by $2.00, (2) Lower the cost of the CUB by cutting down on the number of pages and quality of the paper without hurting the quality of the contents of the CUB material, (3) Eliminating the inclusion of the Membership Roster on an annual basis and, (4) Consider a life membership of 150.00 to $100.00. None of the suggestions were acted upon at this time.

          CUB Editor Gallagher reported that our Adjutant has been most helpful in providing Information for CUB and that we of the Association are indebted to Walt and Lill Bandurak for their efforts over the years to strengthen our Association. He stated that response from members for articles for THE CUB I year was good and it was his hope it will further improve in the future so that THE CUB will be the means of communication among members. This will help to keep us united. He felt our best membership committee we have is each of us urging our buddies to join and attend reunions. John Is looking for suggestions for our "35th Anniversary of Bulge" edition of the CUB; always being receptive for any and all suggestions on content of our magazine, THE CUB. He was able to secure exemptions from the Pennsylvania State Sales Tax. Our members should be made aware of the cost of printing and mailing The CUB stating that during the past year each issue cost $2.65 or a total $10.65 for the four (4) issues. He concluded by stating," One of the joys of being the CUB Editor is hearing of buddies being reunited, many who have not seen each other since 1945.

           Memorials Chairman Doug Coffey's report was previously read by President Scranton and hopefully will be published in this issue of the CUB.

          Convention Chairman Russ Villwock reported that he had a difficult problem projecting or planning for the exact number of members who will be attending this Reunion. Only two weeks ago he had 90 persons sign up or register. He suggested that a deadline be set for future reunions during which time the registrants should have their money in and an indication of the number that will attend in order for the Reunion Committee to do an effective job. He stated it is rough working without having some or all of the money in advance. He reports that, as of this date, 38 members paid their dues', 31 auxiliary members also paid theirs and that 25 new members sent in their money to him. He hoped that 20 to 30 more people would show up and that the selling of additional medallions will help out on the cost of the Reunion.

          Board Member Robert Howell reported on his recent trip to St. Vith, Belgium. He reported that our plaque on our Memorial Building was defaced and that Doug Coffey needed our support on the renewal of the plaque. He stated that the signs or arrows in St Vith do not make any reference to our 106th U.S. Memorial; only indicating the directions to the "U.S. Memorial". He further stated that there are 4 lanes of concrete of highways in our battlefield areas and that an eight (8) story skyscraper has been built in St. Vith across from the Hotel Rathskeller which is named Hotel DeVille.

          Under unfinished business the Adjutant reported that 25-30 members had indicated their desire to purchase a paper-back reprint of our 106th Infantry Division history entitled, "ST. VITH—LION IN THE WAY; 100 to 125 short of the total number needed for the printing company in Nashville, Tennessee to undertake the project. Sherod Collins made the motion, seconded by Adjutant Bandurak, that we table the printing indefinitely. The motion passed unanimously. Under new business it was generally agreed by all present that a dues increase be tabled at which time it would be discussed and voted upon at the General Meeting.

          President Scranton appointed the following committees:

          Resolutions Committee: Joseph Matthews, Chairman; Gene Saucerman and John Fritz, members.

          Nominating Committee: Ben Britton, Chairman; Robert Howell and Dr. James Clark, member.

          The meeting adjourned at 8:45 p.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Walter Bandurak, Adjutant

We of the association are indebted to Walt and Lill for their efforts over the past years to strengthen our association. Response from members for articles for 'The Cub' last year was good. My hope is it will further improve in the future so the 'The Cub' will be the means of communication among members. This will help to keep us united. The best membership committee we have is you urging our buddies to join and attend reunions. Am looking for suggestions for '35th Anniversary of Bulge' edition of 'The Cub'. Your suggestions on content of your magazine, 'The Cub', are requested. I was able to secure exemption from Pennsylvania State Sales Tax.

He stated everything is beginning to shape up and that he will get a letter off to each of our members in January, 1980 which will include instructions relative to air and automobile transportation. He cautioned everyone to not fly into Little Rock, Arkansas but to fly into Hot Springs instead. He received a tentative hotel room prices of $31.00 and $36.00; give or take a dollar or two due to anticipated inflation.

          New Business

          1. 1981 Convention Site - The membership were advised that the Board would contact Mr. Wayne Black, via phone, to obtain a verbal confirmation from him to hold the 1981 Convention in Iowa City, Iowa as he volunteered to do so at the General Meeting held in Elyria-Lorain, Ohio.

          2. 1982 or 1983 Convention Site - Tentative plans are to hold the reunion in Lexington, Kentucky.

          3. It was recommended that a deadline be set by the Reunion Chairman for future reunions or conventions for members to send in their registrations and confirm their hotel reservations; including sending in their money (whole or in part). This would greatly assist the Reunion Chairman and his Committee to set or make firm commitments with the hotel, for meals, buses, etc.

          4. It was reported that Mr. Edward A. Prewett's father recently passed away. His father, a very grand gentleman, accompanied the 106th Infantry Association members on several trips to Europe and everyone on those trips enjoyed his company.

CHICAGO '79

          After a pleasant ride from Philadelphia, arrived at O'Hare, called for a car as Russ suggested. Met Tom Dorosky at the airport. Were driven to Oakbrook Hyatt House by part time taxi driver and minister. Greeted at hotel by reunion committee and Col. Joe.

          Spent a relaxing afternoon meeting members as they arrived. The evening warm-up party was a delightful experience of renewing old friendships and meeting first time attendees.

          Friday A.M. we all met for breakfast after which we took a bus ride to Sears Tower, what a magnificent sight overlooking Chicago which appeared below in a Christmas yard like setting.

          Next, we bussed to Cantigny, a combination park, mansion and museum. First order of business was a picnic lunch.

          In this outdoor setting Chaplain Russ and Father Boyle flanked by the American and 106th flags conducted a most impressive memorial service which was complete with organ music and soloist singing the Lord's Prayer.

          Following Memorial Service, we viewed film of last six months of WW 2 shown in private film studio of Col. McCormick.

          Col. McCormick was with first division in WW I, and named the park for small village Cantigny in France where they had fought.

          The museum contains the historical story of the 1st division displayed in a most impressive manner. As part of display is statue of winged victory made from the same marble from which was made the original statue which is in Normandy.

          Friday evening, we all gathered for a satisfying chicken dinner after which we were entertained by a quartet of young men.

          Saturday A.M. we rejoined for breakfast, the remainder of the morning was free for the ladies to shop and visit beauty parlors.

          The ladies had their own lunch, and entertainment, men had their business meeting after their lunch.

          Saturday evening brought out the ladies in all their finery for the dinner-dance. The after-dinner speech was one of the high points of the reunion. The speaker, Dan Giroux, presented a portrayal of a German professor in a spoof of the American energy dilemma.

          Sunday morning breakfast was last gathering for a fellowship and good-byes till next year’s meeting in Hot Springs.

          We left Auburn on July 15th via auto for the annual reunion in Chicago. Due to a last-minute change in plans at the Maw household Elaine was unable to go to the convention so we persuaded Tom to go along with us. We were indeed fortunate to have Tom along. He is a most amiable traveling companion and an excellent driver (Greyhound Trained). We stayed off the Interstates as much as possible and traveled through the Cherry Valley section of

          upstate New York. We wined and dined led slept that night in Syracuse, New York. The next day we continued our westward trek to the Finger Lakes section of New York State where we had a tour of the Taylor Wineries. It was interesting to see how the different types of wine were processed and to view the oaken vats holding as much as 63,000 gallons of wine being aged before bottling. Our tour concluded with an explanation of, and tasting of, several different types of wine. We left there and traveled to Buffalo, N.Y. where we stayed at the Holiday Inn at the Buffalo International Airport. The next day we drove over to Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada to view the sights and visit the Brand-new Maple Leaf Village. We stayed there overnight then motored along the Canadian side of Lake Erie back into the U.S.A. via Detroit to Ann Arbor, Mich. where we put up for the night. The next day we had an uneventful trip to Chicago via interstate 94 and 294 to the Hyatt louse in Oakbrook, III.

          The convention itself was a most enjoyable one. The accommodations were the best. We were on the seventh floor and we never had to wait over 30 seconds for an elevator. The cuisine was excellent and the program was very entertaining. We toured Chicago including the McCormick Convention Center, Michigan Avenue and the waterfront, The Loop and a ride to the top of the tallest office building in the world for a fantastic panoramic view of the Windy City in all directions. We had our Memorial Service and a bag lunch picnic at "Cantigny", McCormick the Publishers homestead with its beautiful house and gardens and World War I and II battle relics. The Saturday night banquet and entertainment was super and dancing was enjoyed by all.

          After a hearty Sunday morning breakfast, we all bid goodbye and went our separate ways. A very special thanks to our convention committee Jackie and Russ Villwock, Clara and Jim Henning, and Florence and Bill Lucsay. They did a superfine job and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.

          Sunday, we took our friend Tom downtown to the Bus Terminal for his trip back to Boston as he was unable to continue the tour with us. We headed for Grand Rapids, Mich. where we tried to contact the Kuizemas but they had not returned from the convention as yet. We continued on north across the Mackinac Bridge and up to Sault Ste.        Marie where we toured the Soo Locks.

          From there we headed East in Ontario through Sudbury and the tremendous nickel mines to North Bay, Ont. and into Ottawa the Canadian Capital.

          From there we headed into Montreal where we spent a couple of hours and then continued on to Quebec City. Here we realized I had underestimated the time required for this itinerary so we had to curtail our sight-seeing some-what. We started south through Sherbrooke, Que. and crossed into U.S.A. at Derby, Vt. Thence across Vermont and New Hampshire to a little place in Maine called Harmony where Avis' folks and our daughter and son-in-law were vacationing. We headed home from there stopping at York, Me. for a scrumptious Lobster dinner.

          We had a lovely vacation the highlight of course being the convention in Chicago. We're sorry we missed some of our 106th friends who were unable to attend this year. See you next year in Hot Springs, Ark.

          Regards to all, Avis and Ben Britton 

 

Blacks

          I should probably have got a line off to you sooner explaining why we will not be seeing everyone in Chicago this year. I should even be catching you up with everything that has happened to us in the past year.

          To begin with, after a rather uneventful fall and Christmas season, we had the usual rough winter season in Iowa. On 23 January our neighbor in the next apartment decided to go out for the evening and threw his cigarette in a wastebasket without bothering to put it out. In fifteen minutes we could hear what sounded like a forest fire from the front door of our apartment, and in a few minutes the halls were so full of smoke that we had no choice but to wait in front of a bedroom window for rescue. Six weeks later, the apartment owners were still wrangling with the insurance adjusters, so we decided to find a new place. We moved into a lovely apartment on the edge of town overlooking a country club, and we have been extremely happy with our move.

          We felt that after that experience we owed ourselves something of a reward, so signed up for a trip to Hawaii. It was scheduled for 9 to 20 July, so we were afraid that we would be unable to make it to Chicago.

          A few weeks after we finished our moving, we realized that Marilyn had strained her back during our move. It kept getting worse instead of better, so at the end of May she went into the hospital for ten days of traction. We cancelled the Hawaii trip because we didn't feel that she would be feeling well enough by that time. We hoped that she would be well enough so that we could make it to Chicago. She recovered pretty well from the back trouble, but about the first of July she began having strange abdominal pains. It turn out that she has a very large gall stone, so she will be going into surgery for that 23 July. So we scratched the Chicago trip again. Aside from a few minor troubles like these, we have been doing fine, and it any one should ask you, married life is getting better every day. Marilyn and I send our best to you and Stella.

          Sincerely, T. Wayne Black 

          Wayne advises he will not be able to have 1981 reunion. Therefore, Ken Bradfield will have reunion.

 

England

          This is convention week; and we will not be able to attend this year; which makes us both very sad. But Bob cannot get any more time off; so when the convention is the closest; we cannot make it.

          But, the reason that we cannot attend this year; Bob took his whole vacation for our trip to see our son Greg and his wife Debbie; who are teaching in London at an American school for a two year term. And seeing, as how they could not come home; we decided to go over and visit them; sacrifice; ho ho ho. on our part. And then seeing as we were so close to Belgium we visited Francoise; the girl who has been over to see a number of the division members over the past years.

          We arrived in Heathrow airport where the kids met us; and seeing as how they still had school; Bob and I took the double decker bus trip and seen all of the sights that we had seen 10 years ago. Needless to say-nothing has changed; still as many tourists as ever and we felt more cars; those little cars do scoot around. Greg had a Renault that gets 40 miles per gallon; so we were able to really tour the country side, which was very enjoyable.

          Originally planned on taking the Hover plane over to Belgium; but had to have a 3-month reservation; and not being organized; we took the same ferry that we took 10 years ago-this time landing in Ostende. Fran met us with a friends car; a Mazda; thank goodness; because with us 4 Gilders and Fran' we never would have fit into her little car. Fran, her family and Miette the lady who came with Fran last summer to tour the United States really out did themselves in hospitality; housing and food.

          We all looked like "Fat City" when we came back from their country. Fran took us on the tour of Bastogne; they have built a huge museum which houses all the artifacts of allies and Axis troops; then on to St. Vith; the only thing the same there was the "Square" new buildings and homes all over the area: the Ardennes Cemetery and any other sites of the area. Our kids were very impressed; this was their first encounter with the "war" they have heard all of the stories, naturally; but seeing them areas first hand really was impressive to them. Then Miette took us to an old Castle, that was in the town of Vien, her home town is trying to get a Historical Society started, in this mammoth old building.

          They have collected memorabilia items from both wars and in their show case is an Arm patch from the 106th division.

          Enough of our trip; we had 3 fantastic weeks; our money sure does get a beating across the waters; but it was all worth it. Anybody having a day or two to spare stop in and see us; we have over 400 slides and numerous souvenirs; we will be glad to tell you all out our "vacation".

          Again; hope everyone has an enjoyable time at convention; and Russ we are so very sorry to miss out on your hospitality; I know the group will have a very enjoyable time; we will see all of your next year; god willing.

          Bob and Jean Glider 

 

EUROPE

Talk about a dream vacation trip—just before the reunion I was taking to Bob Howell in his home town of Griffin, Ga. where he graciously hosted a delicious lunch.

          He and Louise along with a couple from Millen, Ga. had just returned from a three-week trip to 8 countries in Europe, where he combined pick-up of a new auto at Stuttgart with the vacation. In other words, he used the new car to see 2000 miles of Europe, including a more detailed look at many of the beautiful places with which our Bob and Jean Glider of the beautiful places with which our 106th group got a passing acquaintance in 1974.

          Among these were Salzburg and Zellam-Zee (via the Grosglockner) in Austria; Freudenstat in the Black Forest, The Rhine Falls, and Rothenburg, Germany. Vaduz, Lichtenstein.

          They missed St. Anton, Austria because of following the main road which had been turned into a 10-mile tunnel, coming out beyond his turning point.

          Other visited points of interest were Zurich, Munich, Vienna, Brussels and London.

          Our travelers also visited Bastogne and our memorial at St. Vith, where they stayed at ex-mayor Pip's Margraff Hotel, now run by the mayor's son. The women had to put up with the men's touring of the battlefield (424 area) again.

          There was a lovely trip by train down the length of the Rhine in order the get to Stuttgart. The factory people treated them well before sending them on their way with papers and insurance coverage. The car was shipping home from Antwerp.

          Bob says his new car attracted crowds, since it was a new type of diesel turbo not yet sold in Germany but only in the U.S.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

 

Mr. Thomas J. Riggs, Jr.,

C.O., 81st Engr’s

6 Olive Street

Providence, Rhode Island 02906

          It is a great disappointment to me that I will not be able to make this year's reunion of the 106th. Two serious conflicts have developed in both business and pleasure that will prevent me from attending. As you know, not many reunions have been missed by me because of my attachment directly and indirectly to the people who share a crucial turning point in all of our lives. This year's reunion, being in Illinois, is even more compelling because of my attendance of the University of Illinois—but so be it. My heartiest compliments to the Division for the recognition of Leo and Wilda McMahon. The General has been a strong proponent of our Association.

Wilda has joined with a similar enthusiastic attitude. Please pass along my best regards to all and especially to the 81st'ers and the Wells'es. It is hoped that your health continues in good shape and that we shall meet again next year.

 

Dear Mr. Gallagher:

          We wish to express our thanks to the 106th for having us as guests to the annual reunion in Chicago and especially to the E. C. Whites for inviting us.

          This being our first reunion, we can't compare it with those before, but we found it to be well organized, beautifully executed, and great fun.

          The setting was fabulous, the food great and the entertainment was superb. We thoroughly enjoyed all of the planned activities and being able to see our friends from the '74 European tour and to meet new ones.

          Thank you again.

          Sincerely,

          Lena and Marvin Lasater

Dear Walt:

          I just received the June edition of the D.A.V. magazine and saw where our division is having a reunion. I lost contact with the division when stopped taking the magazine. If you still print it I would like to renew my subscription. I was a P.O.W. and was captured at Parkers Crossroads (Major Parker our btry. commander). There was a picture of it in one of the magazines. I will not be able to make the trip to Chicago this year. Maybe next year I might make it. I do not drive as I am blind in one eye and transportation is a problem anymore. I was in the 589 F.A. Does the 106th have a lapel pin? If so I would like to buy one. "Is there any way of getting a list of names of those in my outfit or the division of the men who were killed in combat or died while in the P.O.W. camps? I only weighed 70 pounds when I was liberated.

Mr. Bandurak:

          Enclosed please find my check for $5.00 for the 1980 dues. So far I haven't made contact with anyone from M. Co. of the 422nd. Seems odd that there are not any of the original members when the division was formed in Ft. Jackson that belong to the association. Should there be someone from M. Co. at your reunion this month that remembers me, I would like to hear from them.

Dear Walt & Lillian:

          We hope you two are fine. I am, but Mansfield has asthma and bronchitis today. He will probably feel better when the weather gets better.

          This is the first time we will have to miss the 106th reunion since 1965. My stepmother is ill with cancer and a bad heart. We are taking care of her. We also have Mansfield's Mother in our home.

Dear Walt:

          I read the notice in the June issue of DAV about the 106th Div. reunion in Chicago in July. I served in the 106th from its activation at Fort Jackson in March 1943 and through part of the Battle of the Bulge when I was taken prisoner along with a few thousand others.

          Although I will be unable to attend the reunion this year, I would be very interested in hearing from anyone who served in the 106th Reconnaissance Troop, especially if they live in Southern Florida.

          Best wishes for a good reunion.

          Sincerely, Al Gommel 4

          Boca Raton, FL 33433

 

Dear Walt:

          I have just completed a short note to Russ Villwock, as I imagine he and his committee were pleased with the attendance, but may wonder what happened to all the others. I had to wait until the last minute to make a decision to go or to follow other plans.

          I decided since I have to live with my wife and will be able to visit with my friends at a later time.

          I will try to explain. My wife is a librarian in the inner City of Cleveland and that alone can be a headache. In addition, this year with all the other problems besetting them plus a long strike, they did not complete the year until June 30th.         My education assignment is like being on gravy train.

          Therefore, we are leaving in a few days for a four-week trip to Scotland, England and Wales, with a side trip to Amsterdam. Hopefully, this will ease some of the pain of this past year. It would be fun to accompany the 106th on one of their journeys but our working schedule will not allow us to do this.

          At this time, I imagine you are returning from the reunion. Hopefully this fall or winter if we have a get together as in the past you may be able to relate some of the fun things of this reunion. I hope some of the new members, from the lists I forwarded to you were in attendance. I will try to furnish any names that may appear.

          A most important thing, I am enclosing my dues. Best to you.

Dear John:

           Just a line to let you hear from me.

          Sorry I won't be able to go to the reunion this year. Hope all of you have a nice time. I sure am glad I joined the organization. I got a call from one of my old buddies, his name is Thomas Munley from Leonard, Texas, it sure was good to talk to him after almost 35 years. I am sorry I didn't join the organization sooner it seems like a lot of reunions have been close to my home. I would like to know how I can get the History of Lion in the Way. I am also sending you the name of the only buddy that has kept up with me. He lives only 100 miles from me and I have only seen him twice. His name is:    Robert M. Meadon

          1109 Pechn Ave. S. E.

          Roanoke, VA 24001

          If you write him I think he would like to become a member. Also some of the boys might remember him want to write him.

Dear Walt:

          Enclosed is a $5.00 check for my 79-80 dues. I hope I am not late in

          sending it. I really missed not being with everyone in Chicago this year. I joined in '76 and attended the Indiana and Ohio reunions, which my wife Florence and I enjoyed very much. Will be anxiously waiting for the next Cub to arrive; to read all about the convention. The Cub is the best magazine I've ever read.

          If God willing; I hope to make the 1980 reunion. Sure would be great to see some of my old army buddies again.

Dear Walter:

          Enclose is check for my dues of Assoc. Have enjoyed the "Cub" and to my surprise saw my picture that Harry Tissot sent in. Sure bought back lots of memories.

          I'm sorry I won't be able to come to Chicago as I have had recent surgery. Perhaps the next one I can make.

          I'm married to Charlotte, old school mate and have a Boston Terrier dog. Will retire 1980 if all goes well.

Dear Sir:

          Enclosed is my check for $5.00 for renewal of my membership. I really enjoy receiving "The Cub" and I think the fellows are doing a very good job with it.

          I am still trying to locate Paul Marin and I think his home state was N Jersey.

          I am retired now and taking life very easy.

          I would like very much to become a member The Cub of the Golden Lion.

          Enclosed you will find a check for five ($5.00).

          I might add that Cecil Johnson of Marianna, Florida who also was a member of our division was the one that encouraged me to become a member.

Mr. Pruett:

          Tonight I talked on the phone with the gentlemen that you know; Ryan Tomlinson and Warren Thomas. I am an associate member of the "106th", and a relative new member at that.

          I have in the past year trying desperately to locate anyone who may have possibly known my father at the time he was in Europe. Unfortunately he never made it back until 8/26/78, which is another story itself. What is important to me is his last three months of life.

          My Father was—T/5 Thurston Hollar of G-Company -2nd Bn -423rd. He was captured Dec. 19, 1944 near St. Vith (I believe on Schnee Eifel), was in German Camp Ziegelei-Bernhard (near Duderstadt?) He died March 1945 at 23 years old, of starvation? at least the government says and I'm doubtful.

          I'm enclosing this photo which is a true likeness of him at the time.

          He went to Fort Jackson in 1939 and was there 4 ½ years then on to Camp A-Atterbury, Indiana (where I was born), then October, 1944 he was sent overseas. His hometown was Hickory, North Carolina at which he is finally resting after so many years.

          I would greatly appreciate any information that could be of any assistance to me.

Dear Bob:

          Here it is that time again and I would like to extend heartiest congratulations to the members of the association as you assemble in Chicago during this the 35th anniversary of our participation in the Battle of the Bulge.

          We were saddened to read in the Cub of the death, last August of Capt. Charles B. Reid, CO Anti-tank Co. 423rd Inf. Charlie was cadried as commander of his unit which he commanded with distinction thru the training phase and in combat. He also had additional duties as C.O. of the composite battalion on the right of our sector as we went into our position on Schnee Eifel. His unit in front of Bleialf came under heavy attack on 16 Dec. but he managed to hang on until the morning of the 17th when his unit was over run. Charlie reformed the remnants of his company and rejoined the regiment. An efficient and capable officer he was held in high esteem by his officers and men. I am proud to have had him as a friend. Our heartfelt sympathy to his widow and members of his family.

          Faithfully,

          Col Charles C. Cavender

          I was a member of the 106th Infantry Division during World War II and would again like to join the Division Association. I was shipped to Fort Jackson, South Carolina in February, 1943 before the Division was activated and was shipped out from the Division in August, 1945 (think) when the point system was started. During that time I was a member of Hq. Battery, 106th Div. Arty. Hq. Btry., in the Survey Section. My home address is 4754 Black Swan Drive, Shawnee, Kansas 66216. My phone number at home is (913) 631-8056. Thank you.

Dear Walt:

          Last night I received a phone call from Bill Flynn, the son of Staff Sgt. Bill Flynn of the 106th Div. APO. I'm expecting a visit from them in the next week or so. Staff Sgt. Flynn's son works in Philadelphia and they intend to make the trip to New York to visit with us. It's been some 34 years since I last saw Sgt. Flynn.

Dear Walt:

          Enclosed is my 79-80 dues. I always enjoy reading the Cub. I was saddened, as I am sure the other members of AT 423 were, to read of the death of our Company Commander, Captain Charles Reid. I am still hoping that someday I will be able to attend one of the reunions.

Dear Walt:

          Please sign me up as a member of the   association.  Unfortunately        (I suppose I really waited too long to write you). I am not going to be able to make the Chicago reunion but am already planning for 1980, wherever the meeting might be.

          Walt, I am slowly going through collections of the past 30 plus years and I know I will find some division memorabilia. Is there any effort being made by the association or an individual to collect division items? If so, I would appreciate any information you may have.

Mr. Gallagher:

          I am a new member of the 106th Infantry Division Association, having joined last month. Imagine! Our Association has existed for 33 years and I knew nothing at all about it. I learned of it through the VFW magazine. How I had longed to get in touch with someone from our old outfit all these years. Guess I have been too busy and preoccupied to ever be motivated to find out.

          I was with Company H, 423rd from the time of organization in Ft. Jackson until the Ardennes, when on 29 December, 1944 I was wounded, spent 3 months in England in hospital. I was given limited duty and served out my duration with the 48th Signal Heavy Construction Battalion, leaving Europe in January, 1946.

          I worked for the Veterans Administration for 6 years and in the business world in Nashville, Tennessee for 3 years as an accountant. In 1955 I read the Methodist ministry and e been a minister for 24 years, serving all my years in the Tennessee Annual Conference of the now United Methodist Church. My wife and I have two grown children, both college graduates and doing well, and both live in Nashville, Tenn. We have one granddaughter.

          I was known as "Ike Harris" in my old company. Many, if living, will remember me as singer and musician. I would sure like to hear from some old buddies who served in H, 423, especially in the 3rd Platoon. Would especially like to know what happened to Howard Francis Pfister, Laddie J. Dismarski, Claude Worsham, Lawrence Howe, Carl Copp, Christopher Rehman, Harold Flickenger and Florence Ridings, some of my dearest friends.

          Received my "Cub" magazine for the first time today, and am looking forward to many more. Thanks for the wonderful job you are doing in keeping us abreast of where we can find the old timers." Wish I could have made the reunion. Maybe next year.

          Sincerely yours,

          Isham A. Harris, Jr. Co. H. 423
