President's MessageTo The Members Of The 106th Infantry Division Association I appreciate the opportunity to serve as President of the great 106th Division Association. It goes without saying that I really am sorry I missed the reunion at Morgantown. I was reluctant to accept the office since I could not attend, but when Sherod Collins called and talked with me, I felt that I should accept if the membership was willing to be no kind as to offer me this position.
I will try to serve the office of President but will also call on and expect help from the membership. I appreciate the officers continuing their work and all have done a One job. Many, for several years have given their time, talent and I am sure money to execute the duties of their office.
I am looking forward to the 1986 reunion in Columbia, S.C. Most of us started our Military service at Fort Jackson and the 106th Infantry Division. Many memories come to mind about Ft. Jackson and I am looking forward to 1986.
May we all remember the purpose of the 106th Div. Association and join together to have a joyous and happy reunion in 1986.

By Ewell C. Black, Jr.In Psalm 133, David writes, "How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!" And as I reflect on our recent reunion I am reminded of how this applies to us, even though not in the particular way in which David meant it in this Psalm.
There is a certain unity which we as members of the 106th Division have with one another which we cannot share with those who were not a part of the experiences which we shared. As I listened at the reunion I heard experiences which carried some back to the organizing of the Division at Ft. Jackson. Others shared remembrances of Tennessee and many of us remembered things which had taken place at Camp Atterbury. In many instances the shared experiences had to do with the days in combat and/or with POW experiences.
Even those of us who had been different companies and regiments hi) the shared experience of having been a part of the whole and subject to many similar situations. And how pleasant it is each year that we can come together and talk about these shared times. Fortunately, God in His mercy, tends to dim the hardships of these experiences and lets us magnify the good times. Almost without exception as I talk with those who have been in combat and/or POWs, they remind me of how much God did to give them strength to withstand the trials and terrors of those dark days when living was a minute-tominute, hour-to-hour, and at best, day-to-day experience.
How good it is that we can come together and remember old times and also remember those of our comrades who were not as blessed as were we, who survived those dark days.
Gracious God, we thank Thee for friends both new and old and for the memory of those with whom we walked long years ago. And we do most particularly thank Thee for all of the tit. when Thou didst walk beside on when going was so rough. Be with us now give us guidance that we may serve Thee in peace as Thou didst strengthen us in war.

He also introduced the officers who served the Association during the 1985 - 1985 year, thanking them for their support.

Adjutant Samuel P. Cariano read the minutes of the last General Meeting held in Savannah, Georgia, July 14, 1984. A motion to accept them was made and seconded; and was carried.
The President then asked all members o were attending a Division reunion the first time to stand, giving their names, unit of the 106th Infantry Division, their city and state. Forty first-time members were in attendance. When asked by the President which member had come the farthest distance, 3 indicated they had come from California. Unit reports indicated that the 422nd Infantry had the largest number in attendance with Company B having 10 present. Communications from Mrs. Alys Jones, which included a check for $500 for the Memorial Fund, and William Cavanaugh, Malmedy, Belgium, asking to hear from members of the Division, were read by Sherod Collins.
The Adjutant reported that the Association had 470 renewals, 72 new members, 13 reinstated members and 13 Associate memberships for a total membership of 568. This represented an increase of 58 over the previous year. He also reported the deaths of 7 members and 1 Associate member.

CUB Editor Richard DeHeer in his report stated that he had really nothing to report. He requested members to send in typed articles for the CUB if at all possible. Also the persons in the photos which are sent to him should be identified on the reverse side of the photos.
Memorial Fund Chairman Douglas S. Coffey gave a report on the latest trip to St. Vith. He informed the attendees that our memorial in St. Vith is in good shape and that it is being used by various veteran groups for their memorial services. Also, reported that there had been a change in the directorship of the St. Vith School.
Roger Rutland, host for next years' reunion gave a preliminary report. The reunion would be held at the Marriott Hotel in Columbia, S.C., October 9 - 12, 1986. He had reserved 125 rooms at the hotel but would attempt to reserve additional rooms in view of the size of the crowd at this reunion. Reservations were to be made directly with the hotel and if any problems came up in obtaining reservations, he should be contacted and he would get reservations at other hotels or motels in the same vicinity. Price of rooms would be $58.00. People who were planning to attend were advised to make reservations early.
There was no further unfinished business to report. There was no further unfinished business to report.

Respectfully, Samuel P. Cariano Adjutant
As I write this you have just said your goodbyes and another Reunion is a matter of history.
Helen's health has kept as from the many past gatherings and, though we wish so we could renew our many friendships in the group, frequent hospitalizations keep us from it.
This year, as in the past we felt that we shouldn't chance traveling so far from home but a 'flare-up', as we call it, occurred early this month and apparently ran its course and we suddenly decided to make the trip. By the time I got through to Headquarters it was too late and all facilities were taken.
We're disappointed but pleased to know that you had an overflow crowd and we assume a very successful reunion. (Helen suffers from a dormant condition caused by too much radiation in treating her cancer many years ago. It suddenly occurs a couple of times a year and, though it used to require a ten day hospitalization, can now be treated at home by doubling her regular very strong medication. We're thankful that more than a hundred days of hospitalization are behind us but we're not too brave about traveling far from home. The error -- if it was an error -- in overtreatment favored survival and we're much more thankful that she is with us today --ornery as ever -- [don't you sympathize with me having to put up with her for more than fifty-six years?[ than if the treatment had been too conservative.) Maybe next year.

P.S. Our daughter and her husband will return from their two year assignment in the Middle East next month and that is our major excitement of the year.
I received the new Cub yesterday, with all the information about the reunion in Morgantown. Whether we get there or not depends on Flo.
For several months she had a weakness in her left leg. In the last month she could not walk across the room without my support. Aker lots of tests, x-rays and cat scans, and spinal taps, they found a growth high up on her spinal column, between the shoulder blades. Last Saturday, the 23rd of Feb., she was under the knife for 51/2 hours. The growth was removed and found to be benign. Thank Cod!
Monday they had her up in a chair and the same thing Tuesday. All the pain she had for months is gone and she feels wonderful. Now they have her walkin a walker and the leg is coming al wonderful. Maybe by reunion time there will be a big change. May we see you in July,
Tom and Flo Bickford
P.S. Everyone missed you two and send their LOVE!
By now most of you know, through the splendid efforts of Robert Walker and his charming wife, a great time was held in Cincinnati for as many 106th members and their wives who could attend a dinner on Dec. 15th, 84. They have started what all who attended hope will be a yearly affair.
Marcia & John H. Hoenemeyer, Co. K 424th 3039 lonietta Ave. Cincinnati, Ohio 45211
Was happy to read all the news in the Cub. I don't think I'll make the 85 reunion; for the EX POW will be held in Milwaukee, Wisc. close to the same time. I was elected Commander of our chapter this year. We are also having the state convention in La Crosse, Wisc. this fall. I feel I should spend my time close to these functions this year.
I've been retired a year and am enjoying every minute of it. When I was in prison camp I was with a lot of 106th men in a factory outside of Dresden, a place called Rabena (misspelled). I don't know any of their names and often wonder what became of them. Keep thinking I'd find a clue of them in the Cub. Maybe some day. Hope you have a Happy Reunion!!!

I was in Dresden during the Fire Bombing, Feb. 13 & 14, 1945.

We retired from our own drapery and carpet business in 1976.
Been married for 43 years in May. We have 2 children, with Robert, our son in Military and will retire in 3 years. We have 4 grandchildren.
So far we have never run into anyone from the Med Det. 422 Inf. We have made 3 conventions, but it is so far from South Dakota. We have made 3 conventions, but it is so far from South Dakota. We have enjoyed the Cub and hope some day to see a name we know, like Graham Frampton.
Thank you, Bette and Junior Andersen, 422 Med. 12 13 10th St. Apt. C21 Spearfish, S.D. 57783
P.S. Maybe you should run a reunion and bring us all out to South Dakota.
I have been a member since the Association was formed at Camp Lucky Strike, France.
I attended some reunions when I was younger but now I am nearing the 80 year mark (in 2 years) and I cannot walk or get around as well.
I would like to meet my old buddies Carl Kweczhk, Caries Gibson, William Donahey, Shine Lee and Al Schuller, who I am acquainted with.
I joined the Division when it orientated and came home with the outfit when it was deactivated.
I was injured in France and rejoined in Germany. I was Co. Clerk of Co. "C" 422nd when Carl Kwaced went to become 1st sergeant. Good luck to the Division Association and all who do the work.
Yours truly, Harrison "Harry.' C. Tissot
P.S. Sherod, your Braves are the ones to beat this year. Reds are stronger but wait until next year.

I am curious as to why I never saw anyone from Co. C, 423 in the Cub magazine. I can't remember the prison camp I was in and wish there was some way I could find out. I don't even remember who they were.
So-long, Mary and Charles I. Be(lay, Co. 423 14 Ehle Dr. Coraopolis, Pa. 15108
I would like to hear from anyone who was captured with me Dec. 19, 1944 at the Bulge. Doctors at V.A. tell me the reason I cannot remember is "Involuntary Amnesia."
Was sent to "Bad Orb" Stalag Dec. 25, 1944 and later to a Stalag at "Ziegenheim." Would certainly appreciate a response from someone who was there.
Thanks, Tom Rothermec, E. Co. 423rd 320 Baldy St. Kutztown, Pa. 19530
Enclosed are two pictures. One a group shot of the 81st Engineers and the other a shot of the Engineers from A Company that were at the reunion.
The pictures are titled and personnel named by Company on the back, per your statement at the general meeting, will be happy if you can find room for them in the Cub.
Well Dick, like I said, God willing we will see each other in Columbia. For now I say so long and the Agostini best to all.

Good morning, Dick:
How have you been these past years. Other than a few memos to the CUB, I have been out of touch since the Cleveland area Reunion a few years back.
John Bryant, Oak Park, MI 106ther, started our 1984 106th Reunion last December. It has taken me a while to have a bunch of photos and enlargements made for each of the nine fellas who attended. Saved out one smaller re-print for possible use in future CUBS. The individuals are identified on the reverse side of the enclosed photo (hope color can be used). I am sure, as in the past years, I have a business related golf Invitational Tournament in July. So, may I extend our best for a successful Convention this coming summer.
Regards...especially a special to Leo T.

I am enclosing an article from the Sunday, February 3, 1985 Detroit Free Press for publication in the CUB.
In December, Emily and I had dinner with the Bob Kellys, Bob Rutts, John Shalhoubs, Jack Gillespies, Bob Rowes, Dick Frankinis, Presley Williamses and Dean Simpson. I had previously arranged a meeting with Presley Williams and Dean Simpson, as these two old army buddies from Hdqs. CO l&R Platoon 422 INF had not seen each other in forty years!
At our December dinner, we had a surprise telephone call from Bill French who wished to be remembered to all his 106 friends. Bill now lives in Willoughby, Ohio. Emily and I are getting ready for a trip to Arizona and California -- before we get snow blind!
We hope to see you and Marge in Morgantown in July.
Sincerely, Jack Bryant
Germans were holding the bag when payday rolled around On Dec. 14, 1944, 1st Lt. Robert E. Rutt was given a sack of money at the headquarters for the 422d Infantry Regiment of the 106th Division in St. Vith, Belgium, and told to take it to the front lines and pay the unit's officers. On Dec. 16, the German Army, displaying an absolute lack of concern for Lt. Rutt's fiscal mission, counterattacked in what came to be known as the Battle of the Bulge.
A week later, Lt. Rutt, still carrying most of the money, was taken prisoner. On Sept. 14, 1945, the Office of the Fiscal Director, Headquarters Army Service Forces, Washington 25, D.C., sent Mr. Robert E. Rutt, Detroit civilian, a letter. A textbook example of the stiff but correct "TO: FROM: and SUBJECT:" military communication, it informed Rutt that a board of officers had been convened "to investigate the loss of funds in the amount of $14,936.04 intrusted (sic) to you in December, "If the funds are still in your possession," the letter went on, "it is requested that a certified check or money order in the amount of $14,936.04 be forwarded to this "The frightening thing about it," Rutt says today, "was that besides what was left of my mustering-out pay, I had no money in the world and the Army wanted me to send them nearly $15,000. I think I even had to borrow the stamp to answer the letter." His wife, Lucille, he says, was pregnant with their second child. "She just kept saying, 'What are we going to do?' " Rutt, who was in law school at the University of Detroit before he went into the Army, did what any serious student of the law would have done. He answered the Army's letter with one that was a full page longer.
Rutt, now a partner in the law firm of Plunkett, Cooney, Rutt, Watters, Stanczyk & Pedersen, explained to the Army that the vouchers for the money he had disbursed were given to other officers and were eventually lost in the confusion of battle.
What remained of the money had been taken by the Germans, despite his protests that it rightfully belonged to the U.S. Government. Actually, Ruff says, he doesn't really know how much money he had left when he was captured.
"The officers I was paying were on a front of about 10 miles," Rutt says, "and it wasn't easy getting to some of them. When the Germans started their drive into the Ardennes we were hit pretty hard, and by that time getting paid wasn't as important to the officers as it had been earlier." So when the Germans surrounded his unit, Rutt was still carrying most of the payroll.
"It was in Belgian francs," he says, "and included a bag of coins that weighed about 10 pounds. When it got bad, I asked a private if he'd like some money and gave him the bag of coins. I took the rest of it and stuffed some of it in every pocket I had." He and another officer tried to break out of the encirclement but were captured by a German armored unit. "Every time I got searched," he says, "they found some of the money, but it took about a month before they got it all."
Even as a prisoner, Rutt says, he knew that someone, someday, would want to know what happened to the money. So he did what any reasonable person who understood the military bureaucracy would do. "I asked the Germans for a receipt. I told them it wasn't my money, and if they were going to take it then they were going to have to give me a receipt for it."
After their initial astonishment at the demand from a person so obviously in position to make demands of any kind, Rutt got two receipts from the Germans for the money. On one of the receipts Rutt asked a German officer to specify that Rutt's personal money, some 2,060 Belgian francs, was found in his wallet, separate from the Army's funds. The German officer made the notation and listed the amounts separately.
In his letter to Washington, Rutt pointed out that he had not, as yet, been reimbursed for 2,060 francs, although he had filed a claim in August. "I also told the Army that the Germans had taken the money before I had a chance to pay myself," Rutt said. "I told them the Army still owed me pay for November 1944."
The Army sent Rutt a check and has made no further inquiries about the $14,936.04. Rutt expects to hear no more. "I think the statute's probably run out on that by
John and I are hack in Milwaukee after our Morgantown accident. I had surgery on my right knee about 10 days ago, with full-leg cast, so will be partially immobile for about 6 weeks. John is chief cook and nurse, and is doing a great job.
I would like to thank all of those who have visited me, sent cards or called to express their concern and caring.
I shall never forget the beautiful feeling I had as I left the hotel and was loaded into the ambulance. All those wonderful people from the 106th -- standing around the doorway clapping, taking pictures, and showing their concern. Just couldn't help feeling better with so many friends sending me on my way with their wishes!!!! Thanks to all of you!!!!

1 LT. JAMES G. TEASONOn April 2, 1985, Lt. James G. Teason, of the 331st Med. Bn. died of cancer, and was laid to rest Monday, April 8, 1985. Jim was very well known by the Chicago area members, as he was a charter member of the chapter. Also a member of the 106th, since its inception. Jim was a self-employed commercial artist. He did the covers for the Chicago Chapter newsletter for as long as the chapter existed. The covers for the 19791982-1983, 106th Reunion programs were also drawn by Jim.
He was an Army medical officer, in the 331st Med. Bn., attached to the 423rd IM. Reg.; also was a P.O.W. at Stalag IV B in Germany. Jim and Dorothy were happily married 37 years, residing in Elmhurst, Ill. They have 2 daughters, Sharon and Diane. They attended most of the Dec. 16th dinners in the Chicago area. In 1984, they were sorely missed. But all present were cheered by a phone call from Jim and Dorothy. Sorry to learn he was too ill to attend.
About 3 years ago, Jim had a triple bypass. Two years ago, they found lung cancer, and the lung was removed. It then turned to bone cancer. The last 3 weeks of his life, I took Jim to Lakeside V.A. Hospital every day for radium treatments. During our talks at this period he asked me to be his pallbearer. An honor I shared with members of the Elmhurst Lions Club, of which Jim was past President.
Anyone who has the photo book of the 106th return to Europe in 1974 can read Jim Teason's 1944 Christmas story in the back of the book. Jim is gone but he will long be remembered by the Chicago area members of the 106th.
Russell H. Villwock The members of the 106th send their deepest sympathy to all his family.
ADRIEN THERRIAULTI would like to inform you that my husband, Adrien, passed away on March 24, 1985. He died suddenly of a heart attack. He had angina problems, but was doing fine, but his first and only attack was fatal.
Adrien was very pleased with his reunions with all of you and was looking forward to attending again in the future. Thank you Rachel Therriault
P.S. The members of the 106th Infantry Div. extend their deepest sympathy to you and your family.
1 should really be writing this to our Association President, Ted Straub. However, in the interest of rearing all the Association members via "The Cub", I am writing to you. So I apologize to President Straub (and save him 22 cents for not having to forward my letter to you).
Last week, specifically on Thursday, 1 August, John and Stella Gallagher journeyed from their home in Temple, PA up here to Middletown for a visit with Wilda and me. It was an appropriate time for the visit as 1 August was Wilda's 78th birthday and the first anniversary of the surgery last year when she received an artificial left knee joint. Also, on the day before the Gallagher's visit, 31 July, I celebrated my 92nd birthday! The Gallaghers gave us a detailed report on the outstanding reunion which you had last month at the Sheraton Lakeview Resort in West Virginia. We were disappointed in not having been there but, at our ages, extended travel has become a real chore. In lune we did attend a family wedding down in Houston. One of my grand-nephews
who is also one of my Godsons was the groom. (He is an Air Force Dental Corps Major stationed in Turkey.) So another trip so soon after the Texas visit would have been too much. However, we were with you in spirit. John and Stella showed us many photos taken at the reunion as well as some photos they acquired there which covered the memorial visit to Europe last year by Doug Coffey, Jim Wells, and other Association members. But the Gallaghers saved the best for last. They surprised us with two Association lapel pins, an Association letter opener, and a beautiful Artillery red birthday card signed by President Straub and accompanied by Sheraton Lakeview stationery with the greetings/signatures of apparently all present at the reunion! Wilda and I are most greatful for these items and will cherish them always. We wish to thank President Straub and all the Golden Lions for their thoughtful remembrances. Of course, we thank the Gallaghers for delivering them in person. Last, we wish to thank all our dear Association friends who mailed birthday greetings directly to us here in Middletown.
Wilda joins me in sending to you and Marge, President Straub, and the entire Association our very best wishes.
Warm personal regards, Leo T. McMahon BG, USA (Retired) 8 North Union St., P.O. Box 7 Middleton, PA 17057
Dick DeHeer and friends with the hooked rug made by F ran Longhorn-8423 (white recuperating from foot surgery) of Arbiet Komando camp they were in as P.O.W.'s.
Just to let you know Jackie and I are sure enjoying our retirement! Plan to see the Walker's in Cincinnati, Ohio in the middle of June.
On May 11th I was moved up to Sr. Vice Commander of the Park Ridge V.F.W. Post 3579. It sure keeps Jackie and me on the go, but it's also a lot of fun. James Henning will be retiring on the 31st of May, after 30 some years of service at Argonne National Laboratories. Several of the 106th Chicago area men and their wives will be attending his retirement party.
Talked to Ed Rydzinski of 422, and Herb Meagher of 422. Ed is retired and Herb is talking about it. We also have dinner once a month with Jim and Clare Henning and Bill and Florence Lucsay. That's about it for this time. Jackie sends her best to both you and Marge.
Best wishes to all! Russell H. Villwock
P.S. I thought I was back in N.J. when I typed Park Ridge, lived near that town.
Dear Friend (Dick),
Thank you so much for your letter. I intended to return your call from my home. Thank you also for the copies of the "Cub". I appreciate it very much, for it brought back a lot of memories. I am interested in becoming a member and receiving the "Cub" and/or any other information.
It would be my pleasure to meet you and talk sometime in July. Let me know.
Sincerely, Roy Hilliard, Co. D 442
While we visited our son in Ohio, Dick met with Roy, who is a minister of Westbrook Park United Methodist Church, 12th St., Canton, Ohio. It might be nice if you live near there, to stop in and say "Hello."
In late January, Jerry was in the hospital for 4 days and expected to have an operation for a slight fracture of the right hip. The operation was called off and she was put on crutches for 6 weeks and then a cane. Some days she doesn't have to use the cane.
In February, we went to Pompano Beach, Fla. and spent 3 days in Naples and visited with my sister in Ft. Meyers twice and ended up at our daughter, Betty's in Raleigh.
Going down we stopped in Jacksonville. Considering Jenny's hip problem, we had good luck and although in constant pain at times, she was better away than keeping up her busy schedules of Gray Ladies, Red Cross Blood Service, etc. If Jenny doesn't want to go to Morgan Town, I will call my golf partner, Ralph Hamme and play on our golf card at the Sheraton Lakeview. I will also take in all the 106th actives.
If any of the boys from further north want to come to Hanover, we could do it also. If any and I are going to fly to Bermuda d it will be the first time Jenny has flown. We'll take it easy and do what we feel like at the moment.
Will be in contact later.
So-long, Charles 5. Peyser 212 Potomac Ave. Hanover, Pa. 17331
Dear Mr. Collins,
I toured the Bulge area last Sept., with the Veterans of the Battle of the Bulge. Our tour along with the 106th group met in St. Vith for a church service, then both groups went to the Memorial. We had a very nice service there, then we all went to a reception, given by the Mayor. I know that you know all of this, but I just felt that the tour was a highlight of my life, and that I was really impressed with our memorial.
I was captured on "Parker's Crossroads" -- my visit there was extra special. I met with the woman that owns the restaurant - Hotel (this was the building that was on fire when we were captured - they used the same bricks to build the new one). I spent a few hours with her and she is a very nice person. She showed me many pictures of the corner before and after the battle. She has invited my wife and - I back as her guest anytime we wish to come. If anyone who reads this was there at the time of the battle and remembers a civilian man sitting in the house all during the time we were there, it was her father. I often wondered what happened to him. She told me that, after we were marched away, they took her father into the woods and tied him to a tree. He remained there for two days and two nights. This eventually led to his death. The 106th dedicated a Monument to the 589th (next to the hotel) the day before I was there. The Plaque tells what Major Parker and the rest of us did there. This w a very fine thing to do. However,as it really disturbs me to know that the Division never got in touch with Mrs. Parker to tell her it happened, nor did they send her a picture of the Monument. I know this to be a fact, because I sent her a picture and in her reply she told me that she never heard from anyone.
I'm sure that at the dedication, someone took better pictures than I. It still would be nice to have our President or Chaplain send her a copy of what was said at the dedication along with a nice picture.
Major Parker has passed away. Her address is: Mrs. Arthur C. Parker, 1017 Vestavia Manor Dr., Birmingham, AL 35216.
All my very best,
John Gatens, A Btry. 589th FA Bn 2-36 Grunauer Pl. Fairlawn, N.J. 07410
Dear Mr. Collins,
I like Doug Coffey's idea of setting up scholarships to remember those who didn't come home. I was a latecomer to the Division, joining I Co., 424th Inf. just before Christmas and staying with them until we were shipped to the Cigarrette Camps at Le Havre, France, in July '45. From there I was shipped to a PW Adm. group in Namur, Belgium.
Sincerely, Hugh Hochstetter 427 E. Courtland Mundelein, Ill. 60060
I had planned so much to attend this reunion, but due to my wife, Alice's sickness and operation, plus my own latest sickness, we will not be able to attend. It breaks our hearts that we cannot attend due to health.
Please remember me to all the members of the 106th, especially Co. D, 423rd. Please remember me to all the members of the 106th, especially Co. D, 423rd. I will be 75 Nov. 1, 85.
God bless you, Lee 1. Brogan 87 Mt. Vernon St. Lowell, Mass. 01854
