    TI1is colun,n tru1s off with a very happy note. Hear that? It's thesound of the cash register. Yes. ale of lhe past Cub i sues on CD di ks have been ongo ing. Orders are lo \v co ming in no\v but each one brings a small contribution to lhe Association's treasury. T hanks go out to Associate Me n1ber.Jirn West. in Franklin , rndiana, for he made it possible. Be fore the snowflakes fall again (in Maryla nd) we hope to have the
    CD containing the personal memoirs of so n1any of our I 06th Vet. and even a couple of most inte res ting warti,ne torie from others involved in the big battle.
On the morning of December 16. 1944. I felt like Public Ene,n_r Nt1rnber One. l
. uppo e that n1ost of you reading this felt the sarne. AJI of Ll1at deadly corru11orion that
    , vas going on around us was targeting me, and me alone. Thal was a long Lime ago and since then I have learned Lhat l wa not the only soldier there. In fact, my short involvement with our war sparked an interest in the history of World War U combat in general. I have read many personal account of what happened to a great many individuals. Quite often nO\V l ,vill rneet son1ebody else who wa there when I ,vas. I have con1e to apprecia te the contribu tions of many brave young n1en and women toward total victory over those who would en lave the world.
    In recent years I have enjoyed the friendship of a younge r man who J have a great deal of respect and adrniration for. His nan,e is Josep h BaJkoski, and he is the offic ial Historian for the 29th In fantry Division. Balkoski ha researched and publis hed three ouL,;tanding, best selling, book covering lhe Normandy Invasion; Beyond The Beach­ head. On,aha Beach. and Utah Beach. If you want to stud y what happened at Normandy ju l read the c boo ks. We all kno,v that one. two hour. n1ovie cannot begin
to te lI the story.
    The 29th Divis ion has been a n1ilitary force since before lhe American Revolution and has participated in every war that the united States of An1erica has been involved with.
    The present 29th l11fantryDivis ion is an outgrowth of the early units. n,ere is an Armory in Baltimore city that houses a n1u e um co ntaining many souvenirs la g11e rre frorn n1cmbers of the 29th and others. The home (built c 1740 ) that once belonged to Lhe first con,mandc r of the Maryla nd Militia. Mordicai Gist. still exists in my neighborhood. and is a constant reminder of the beginnings of our great count ry as a world po,ver.
    I recently vi ited the 291h infantry Division Muse um with a neighbor who had been a 1nember of the division v.,hcn it ,va under Arn1y National Guard command during the 1970" s. We ,vere treated to a personal tour by Joe Balkoski. and like all mu e um visits, lhi. one was n1uch too · hort. For some unkno\vn reason n1use un1 curators are always short of advertising n,oney . o if you want 10 appreciate the history of why and how the United Sta les of Arnerica became a free country you will have to seek then, out.
    During the last year I have becon1e aware of a very disturbing fact. lt"s like having someth ing go hay\vire with your te lep hone. Only thi time one can' t just thro"v it out and buy a ne,v one. The An1crican Nl ilitary Cen1eteries in Belgiu,n , Ho Ua nd, and Luxe mbo urg, and n1aybe other place lhat T have not heard about. are being des­ ecrated, vandalized. and in general, not cure-0 for by those people who live in rreedom today. because tho e buried there died for that ca use.

    Our good frie nds, Mathilda and Marcel S c hme tz. who operate the Re1ne11iber39-45 M11se 11111 in Belgium. visited the U.S.A. last year and spokeat le ngth about chi. problem. I was there l o hear Lhis and thought. ju L n,aybe. they were tre1ching it a bit. But no, actually they were not telling it all. This week I had the ame di turbing message frorn a Dutch friend, Ro n van Rijt. [ quote Ro n's mes. age:
Dear Liberators :It is w;tl, ut111ost disgrace tltat I se11d you this c/;ppi11g fro11z our
newspaper of today (A pril 1, 2006. )
II says that parts of tl1e He11ry-Chapelle Ce111et er') had to be closedoff, because
    " tourists" sl,ow 110 respect whatsoever for the soldiers who c/;ed for our freedou,. There are 450,000 people visitin g Margrate11 eac h year.
    Drug dealers, people walking w;tlt dogs, skateboarders, people holding a barbecue (! !!! !) ..... 011 Henry-Chapelle Ce111eter y pro1Jerty. It's also al Margrate11 Ce111etery that I see people picnicking 011tl1e lawn at the entrance of the ce111etery.
I feel so deepl)1 asha,ned and it truly 111akes ,ne sick wlie11 I read thi s.
    A,nerican Veterans wrote angry letters to tlie Belgian and Dutch E,nbassy,so now the ce111eteryis protected by the police. 1 would lik e to send a bunch of toug/1 guys to beat those freaks off the ce11e1 fery !!!!
T/1a11k God not all people are like that!
    My neighbor asked111e yesterday to take her 15 year-old so11 to Margrate11 Cen1et ery and lo teach lzi111 about our Liberators. Her 19 year old son is a sub1rtari- 11er ii, the Dutch Na vy a11d I took hi111 to Mar graten few years ago.

    My grandfather. Dale Carver. is a tall. broad s houldered, dark con1plexioned. handsome man of 76. He has thinning black hair with a srnall amount of gray. He "vears large. hlack-rin1med g lasses. My grandf rtther cons iders hin1self younger than people of the ame age. they are all too old.
    He is . ardonic. and on,e,vhat of a recluse; he believes "People are 110 da,1111 good, but they're all there is.·· He has no u e for n1ost people. save hi poker buddies. his friend from the War, and occasionally hi family.

    He o nly slightly less ecce ntric than he is intelligent. A pyrornaniac. he does not use his hea te r. but instead kee ps his wood bun1ing stove lit almo st all winter. He has bonfires in his yard. two n1ostly wooded acres in the hean of south Baton Ro uge. about a half n1ilc fron1 the LSU can1pus. T he largest lire to date had flan1cs leaping

    He is the stereotypical absent n1inded professo r. a n1an o f g reat eruditio n, but very forgetful.
