          ai ly    Visiting my parents in Florida several      R        years ago, Dad and I went out for coffee   C        one morning and saw a disreputable       C        looking old man rummaging through the  st       apartment complex's "garbilator," a sort of          61      dump truck body which the city picked up.       sr       "Look what that tramp is doing!" I     ai        remarked. My father said: "You know, he          nl       is a retired university professor. What he    1'        digs out, he sells, and what he makes he      rr       gives to his university for a scholarship." I         fc        felt sheepish and stated something like         fc        "each one walks to a different drummer's    hi beat."        When I was 14 years old, I spent the       ai        summer with my maternal grandparents in          bi       Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, England. This          rr       summer past we enjoyed a month-long visit       bi with our 14 year old grandson Bill Elbring.

tc cb,‘, -,‘ % astir Russell H. Villwock       .,;'<s   ‘`‘ ‘‘v,' A '        ;ew This past week I was presented with a plaque from the United Way/Crusade of Mercy, Which I accepted on behalf of the Wilson Jones Company as 1 was the 1981

          Chairman for the company. When the president of the company named me as the chairman this past August. I accepted the job with some doubts. I thought that we wouldn't do as well as we have in the past years. One of the reasons being the economical shape of things today.

          How wrong I was. True to form. people, the American people, my fellow coworkers, came up with cash and pledges that not only equaled lastyears, but increased our contributions by 35 percent.

          When you think about the continuing high levels of inflation and the unemployment apd the eventual scope of federal budget cuts for human care services, our contributions had to be greater than last year to fund the services to those thousands of people that are in need of help during these troubled time.

          I received the plaque-but the 40 some solicitors really did the job with the help of all the employees.

          It is the same in every thing we do. If the 106th has a successful year, it will be said that Russell had a successful year, when it was the adjutant. the Cub editor, the committees and each one of you that really made it possible.

          So let each one of us make an honest effort in the coming year to help our adjutant.


          Sherod A number of you will remember our friends and long-time members Ed and Mary Alice "Reddie" Prewett. They have participated in two association trips to Europe plus the recent multi-unit trip there in which Chaplain Mosley and others of the 106th participated. Unfortunately they have never been able to attend a stateside ) Pierce, to increase membership and   J Cub editor, Dick DeHeer, to put out a lazine that helps us all.

          This convention for those of you who missed it was one of our best and it proved itself by having one of the largest pumber of people than previous memory.

          If you took the plane to the Convention you missed on many things. There is no better scenery to be seen as you drive across this country of ours, passing through Georgia, beautiful Tennessee with its mountains and valleys thrilling you with each ascent or descent as you pass through. Then, much the same but sometimes better views through majestic Kentucky until your arrival at Kentucky Dams. This was something quite different than any previous convention site. There were Motel-like units all with magnificent views together with cottages set among the trees and rolling hills where many 106ers shared with their families or with friends as we did. We had the privilege of sharing with the Sam Cariano's and the Schutte The cottage had three large bedrooms, two baths, huge living room, formal dining room together with kitchen and two large porches.

          By getting to the Covention early we were able to enjoy a few rounds of golf. I didn't know there were cotton trees in Kentucky?? Phill Schuttee kept hitting the ball into these cotton picking trees but I only saw normal trees, no cotton. How come Sherod Collins always plays with gals; golf, that is. How lucky can you get to have Billie Cariano and Jean Schutte as your team.

          Van Wyatt and Bobbie and the Bradfields deserve a lot of credit. I'm sorry the Resolutions which were prepared were not read at the Banquet so everyone would know how we felt about the job they all performed. Poor Van was so afraid he would have an accident toting all that moonshine from Paducah to the Dam site so we could imbibe. Course he was made : LAKES '


-         :Y‘Si-\4

          Honorary Sheriff so he must have e must have slipped a few bottles to the iff. He was also made a Kentucky nel, does that mean he can carry Inshine in his trunk all the time?? m Bradfield was also made a Colonel I thought he was one all the time.

          yone obeyed his orders so that the vention ran well.

          ie Memorial Service, held in Van's e town was outstanding and all who part deserve a "well done". The 106th , it like no other outfit. Sure all were ed by the entire service.

          ur visit to the "FARM" was something all the city folks to see. The main ling was built underground like the nan Bunkers and was just so nice and after the heat above. Course, as we ed the pigs I can't say it left a bad taste )ur mouth but it sure left a bad smell in nose.

          ur banquet Sunday evening is always highlight of our Conventions and this was no exception. Gals in their best bib tucker and animated conversations g on all over and so many new people !d with us this year. Of course, we ed a lot of the old timers who were tars in the past. It is amazing that as we )Ider we add new members who never d of the 106th reunions. We lose a few year to death but that is a natural ; in life and in any organization.

          Le For a number of years before his deal 1%9 our beloved Division Common Major General Alan W. Jones U.S.A., wrote a column for each issue of the ( '1          which he titled BAG LUNCH.

We have been to the house over the years but not the office.

          Saw Mary Senn, who took one of our trips to Europe and of course Maydean, who just runs the whole show.

          For once Jim was not there as he had an appointment in Southern Georgia. We probably passed his going the other way on the Woodpecker Trail. Had a lovely lunch and visit with Maydean.

          I'm sure I missed a lot in this little epistle but I repeat that those of you who missed it missed a great one. We look forward to many more and it will be a case of "can you top this?" :H FAREWELL McMahon "Bag Lunch" column was published in the 1981-April, May,June issue.

          Mrs. McMahon and I return to the columns of the "Cub" here to greet our old friends of the Golden Lions and to express a warm welcome to the numerous new active members.

          I say thanks to Doug Coffey for nominating me as an Honorary Life/Member of the Board of Directors of the Association. And thanks to the members of the Board of Directors in electing me.

Dear Robert,

          I am sending in my dues so I won't miss k

          the very interesting "Cub". I only wish I had      fi

          found out about it long ago. I really enjoy          r

          reading it.

          As you probably know I have been trying l's

          to locate a Medic that probably saved my           life. So far, all streets have been a dead   tl        end. I have sent an ad to the Ex-Pow, of  tl        which I am a life member, the D.A.V.. of      a which I am also a life member. and the           Cub. I also sent an ad to a New York City          e         newspaper, as that is where he lived at that          c time. Nothing there.

          Looking back in an old Cub "1979" 1 saw that you were with the 81st Med Det.

          Here is what I am trying to find out: the  ko

          Medics that are attached to a certain Co, or Bn, will their name be on the Co. roster in which they are attached; or will they be o the Medical unit roster? I wrote to five exmembers of the 331st Bn and received a roster of that unit, but its unclear as to how          I the Medical system worked. 1 wrote to Walter Bandurak to seek information but       I         haven't had time for an answer. I noticed          E he also was a member of the 81st.

          I know I have talked to you before about this and I don't mean to bore you with it:          but it means so much to me to find him. I Thanks! Sincerely, Bill Tarront, Greenville, Tx.


Dear Dick:

          It's wonderful to know you would step forth onto the battle field again as "Cub" Editor. Every member of the Association owes you heartfelt thanks-and here are mine.

Dear Mr. Coffey,

          Thank you very much for your additional remittance of 1,000 dollars.

          Since my letter of 26th February '81, the memorial has been painted and the commemorative tablet has been attached, I therefore send you several photos showing how the latter work has been achieved.

          There is still a problem with the flag-staffs which probably have to be replaced.

However, there is still enough money t, ,‘,..1..iirts;:xigig&l "„4- avittr svizt    „ A,VS:Ara,teum as    1.7..7a4 't47ii% 4,0 fiditr,,Y.- air f,--34111(ficre..14     K          tictrIS44 ,‘,7tralscrof .Mn 314 " 1111

          Ron Mosley '400* ,.  , Throughout the years since World War II I have received a lot of correspondence from fellow 106thers. Many of us have had a very difficult time adjusting to civilian life.

          We have suffered headaches, intestional disturbances, anziety and stress, heart trouble, ulcers, colitis (my "thorn in the flesh”) as well as other physical troubles. I think our POW's have been especially suseptible. Guilt feelings are common, and I have had many. The personal question has been: "Was I adequate in my position as a Chaplain? Did I do the job that God and my country expected?" The answer is "no!" We have all had such doubts and questions, but we were there! At the time and under the circumstances which were almost unparalled in military history, we did the best we could.

          The command officers of the 106th had to make some terrible decisions especially in surrendering. I think they did what their consciences told them to do. I feel I would have done the same: i.e., use up their ammunition and material, destroy what remained, and for the sake of the lives of their men (the youngest average age in the U.S. Army) surrender to the overwhelming forces of the Nazi enemy. Now let all of us live- together in harmony and peace with God, fellowmen, and ourselves. Through our Association of the 106th Infantry Division let us give to each other the support, understanding, and kindness we all need. I've said it: I feel I should have said this long ago! St. Paul wrote in Ephesians 6 "Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and HAVING DONE ALL, TO STAND. "Stand we did! refuse to take on any or more guilt. The )le "guilt trip" some so-called pacifists try mit on me. who served as a service plain, and on all of our veterans I se. We know what war is and can do.

          are the ones who are the real peace- terse the ones who saw what man's Imanity can do. We must demand and k for a just society world-wide of herhood and good will. That's what it's 'bout: striving unceasingly for all men women and little children to enjoy the s of their labors and the good things of world and the next. That's why we it to make our country's heritage of dom, liberty, and equality (they all le from God's Will) the norm for all had nightmares and bad dreams and 3ivings frequently until I returned to the ennes in 1960. Now I "ride the wild >es" only when it's December. We uld all be proud to have served in the th Division, We were young, and our ils were high. Let's keep them bright shining forever! God bless!     \.4          t3VA, ;ESIDENT'S    4'R' -ESSAGE 1NeCN, \*\<1111k,:i \\\V 1"''n\9141 asseN H.

Dear Members:

          As you make plans for a future convention, 1 think you should have before you a few of the many reasons why we believe that Milwaukee can offer you some of the finest facilites that you will find anywhere in this country. I know you want to provide the very best for your delegates and their families, and I can assure you that Milwaukee will measure up to your most rigid standards.

          Milwaukee maintains its long-standing reputation for the friendliness of its people and the cleanliness of its streets and public c    places. Our traditional hospitality assures you that you will never be a stranger in our 1      community for very long. There is a quiet community pride that people seem to sense when they seek information or need assistance in finding their way about ow city. I like to believe that it is our way of letting you know, without telling you in sc many words, that you are most welcome guests.

          I believe your choice of Milwaukee will be a happy one — a choice that you will Ix proud to recommend to your membership.

          a. trktr********************** lr Bob, 'bought you'd like to hear one more :y of two old 106th friends getting ether. Whether or not, here goes.

          i/Sgt. Ben Tingle and myself were mbers of the same company (HHC, 3d 422d Inf.) and were both captured on 19th of December, 1944 near iurnberg, We were in the same camps, at Limberg, IVB at Muhlberg, IIIB at stenberg and finally, after the long rch at IIIA at Luckenwalde. We didn't :k up together, but would run into each er from time to time and shoot the eze as all GI's will. Then when we were rated by the Russians in April of 45 we track of each other. Like so many, I got nk with the Russians and took off with m for a little bit. A little of that went a g way and, I worked my way back to American lines just before the war was ?.r. From there, it was through Lucky ike and home. Anyhow, I lost track of n, but kind of thought I.would run into 1 someplace in the Army. He was a ific soldier and I thought he would go a g way in the service. I remained in the .ny until 1965 when I finally retired with )ut 24 years service. I figured two wars s enough. I didn't need another one.





          yhow, I never did run into Ben and, an wondered what had happened to Last year I joined the American Ex-POW . and began receiving their monthly letin. In going through the membership ng in one of them, there was Ben's Tie and home address. To make a long ry short, I wrote and he wrote back. We 3an corresponding and last May when I to go to Atlanta for business, I went up Chattenooga, Term.. and my wife, irothy, and I spent a wonderful day with n and his wife. They showed us all over city and, we just had one wonderful ie. He didn't stay in service, after all, but nt back home selling insurance and then tombiles. No wonder I never found him.

          I well, it was great and we plan on doing 'gain next year.

          Not too much of a story. I grant you, wever: I thought you just might enjoy it.

          could have written sooner but. I've been the road all summer and, writing isn't one of my greatest assets. That reason I didn't make the reunion in Dorothy and I very definately ph making next years'. All we need to k where and when.

          In case you're wondering what I'm now, hang on. When I retired fro Army, I was the G3 Operations Offil III Corps and Fort Hood. Eight r later, the position was civilianized anc hired back. (1 figured I'd either done superb job they couldn't get along t, me or, I had mucked it up so bad n 1    else could understand it) Anyhow, what I am doing now. 16 years later.

          Thats it, my friend. Thanks for and please send us info on next reunion when it is available.

Sincerely, Neil Farrell

Dear Mr. De Heer:

          I have very sad news to report to you and its that my beloved husband, John D.

          Wilson, died of a heart attack on December 22, 1981 while driving back home from our Christmas shopping. He didn't have any warnings or make any sounds, just closed his eyes and left us.

          He was a very proud American and loved everything about the army and had so many books and things about his war: WWII. He was a POW from the Battle of the Bulge, Company H-422nd Infantry.

          I don't know too much about those things, please forgive my ignorance. But I you would mention him in one of the 'er ib". ie left besides me, our adopted son, iji, 6 years old, 3 older daughters from marriage, 4 grandchildren, his parents .others and 2 sisters - We all miss him a 'hank you so much for your attention, :erely, ma Wilson members of the 106th Infantry Division ind our deepest sympathy to you and Family.

          ar Richard, just received the first issue of the Cub the year 1982 I sure did enjoy reading (use your ingenuity) by Chuck ikarish. It was good to see his picture re with Sgt. Hires in action in Tenn. Tt boys did their job aliright.

          I would like to hear from any of the o old buddies of Co. M 424th.

          I will plan to attend the Milwai reunion in July.

Cub Editor,


Dear Sir:

Glad you are back on the “battlefi( Like

          Mr. Bill Tarrant from Texas who lA about getting addresses: I too would lil list of the personnel in the. 331st Med and 2nd 81st Det.

          I was a medical officer in the Clez Co. and also served with Med D< received the Combat Medical Badge ai same time with T/Sergeant John Str 2nd Capt. Bernard Goldman, our denti Over the years I've forgotten many o names and would hope to get a list.

          Since returning to good old U.S., practiced surgery in Chicago for 19 , i and another 23 yrs. in V.A. in Fla. I am now retired, and am, thank God, enjoying good health. We live in Jacksonville. My wonderful wife, Ethel, gave us 4 sons, Geo, Jr; Ronald; Robert; and Jim.

          We will try to make a reunion.

          Sincerely, Capt. George Osborne,423 rd Med.

          The members of the 106th Infantry extend their deepest sympathy to Mildred Anderson and family for Gerald died February 2, 1982. He was bowling when he had a few pains in his chest and later died at the hospital. Jerry used to live in Glenrock, New Jersey and then lived in Ellenton, Ha.


Dear Bob,

          Enclosed is my $10.00 dues money for the coming year. Sorry that we could not make the reunion in Kentucky. We moved up to the northern part of Michigan at that time and were busy moving our worldly goods.

          retired in May because my shop closed and went out of business and put 480 people out of work for good! At 62 years of age no one would hire me so I had no other choice but to retire at that time in my life! Six of my seven children are married and we are proud parents of eight lovely grandchildren. The wife and I spent our 39th wedding anniversary up in the lovely woods in the north. We married during the war years and she followed me to Ft. Jackson, S.C. and then to Camp Atterbury in Indiana, then of course the 106th went over to England.

          I keep in touch with some of the boys in my outfit, plus the Rev. Dr. Ronald Mosley.

          I really enjoy hearing from him and only L wish I could see him once before the man upstairs calls me to the great beyond.

          Inclosed is some pictures of some of the boys that where at Ft Jackson and Tank Hill in 1943.

          Its a sad part of my life that I saw so many of them get hit and so many that were killed by the dirty Nazi's at the town of Lommerweiler and Winterspelt, germany during the "Bulge". It was a nightmare and still is with me. After being taken prisoner and being marched for days I ended up in Stalag 12A and then ended up in four more concentration camps. The worst camp being 2-A in Ponneriania, Poland across the Oder River. This P.O.W. Camp was a nightmare to me and my fellow prisoners. How a handful of us survived the hell on earth I shall never know. The good Lord upstairs must have been watching over us.

          Our menu of food was a half cup of Rutabag soup - one slice of black bread and a spud now and then.. Believe me we lost a lot of weight fast and some of the boys just couldn't make it!!! Shall sign off now and only hope the wife and I can make it to Milwaukee. Wisc.

          in July. Its a treat to read the "Cub" when it arrives here in our home in the woods.

          Keep it up.

Sincerely Yours, Louis Terry P.O. Box 204 Fairview, Mich. 48621

Dear Bob:

          It seems that each time I come across my membership card I find that I have not sent in my dues for the next year.

          It happened again this year. In order to correct for this occurance in the near future I am sending my check for the sum of $50.00 to cover from 1981 until??? Perhaps a lifetime membership would be in order for one such as myself!! Hoping to make the next reunion with Gloria if plans to Alaska do not interfere.

          For those of us who where in Hammelburg the new book RAID by lard Baron and Major `Abe' Baum will g back memories. Col. 'Joe' Matthews ell covered in this publication.

Dear Fellow 106thers:

          After correspondence and telephone to and from our President Russ Villl and our reunion chairman, C Puskarich, we have some decisions z our Memorial Service. It will be hell Friday afternoon, July 16th, of (weather permitting) at the War Memo/ Milwaukee.

          We decided to go the simple rout( outside speaker, keeping it a simple P Remembrance with the Service led b' Association Chaplain with President 1 Chairman Chuck, Adjutant Bob taking Now we probably need an accompani the piano or organ. I will have Memorial Service Order of Worship pr on the same stock as last year. This is from me, financed from digging and s piclams here at our home. Our music v% "My Country `Tis of Thee," "0 Bea I For Spacious Skies." and the fairly modern "Let There. Be Peace On Earth." Can we get a group of singers. a Chorus if you will, I to work briefly on this the Thursday evening before the Memorial Service? Is there a 106th member who will Volunteer to play f the piano/organ? Eloise can't accompany I me this year. She will in 1983, God willing.

          Here's how "Let There Be Peace On Earth" goes: "Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me.

          Let there be peace on earth, The Peace that was meant to be.

          With God as our Father, Brothers all are we.

          Let me walk with my brother in perfect harmony.

          Let peace begin with me, Let this be the moment now..

          I With every step I take, Let this be my solemn vow: To take each moment and live each moment in peace eternally.

          Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me." Eloise and I have a singing group in our veterans' branch in Bridgewater (Brance 24, Royal Canadian Legion). We make some noise! We'll have a bugler whom Russ and Chuck will get, and we'll have a great tribute! By the way, I got a brochure, "Veterans of The Battle of The Bulge," dues @ $5.00; no names but address is P.O. Box 5510, Arlington, Virginia 22205. Who's behind this? God Bless! Ronald A. Mosley 106th Association Chaplain 4 _ , Please Pay Your 3   Dues Promptly! ti
