Please! Answer Your Mail!The future of the 106th Division Association depends largely on the sustained interest of the members elected to the Board of Directors, between Reunions. The Editor of the Cub is entitled to hear from them once a month with items for publication. Members of the Pennsylvania group have been working on plans for the 1958 Reunion in Eastern Pennsylvania. On 1 October this group sent a letter with folders to each of the 21 Directors, recommending Galen Hall, Wernersville, Penna., as a site for the 1958 reunion. The opinion of each Director was requested on an enclosed addressed return postcard. Up to November 1, fourteen had replied. No word from five Directors. Some of the replies indicated that Galen Hall site might scare off some .of the marginal members. The Pennsylvania group are now investigating Philadelphia. Their decision will be announced in the next issue of the CUB. The above letter was received from one of our very active members. We must all help to make our association grow.--Ed.
GreetingOur president sends best wishes to all our members and their families. During this past political campaign Larry was very busy and away from home much of the time. Next issue will carry a more detailed message to all.--Ed.
Editor's NotesMay I go along with all your officers and extend to you warmest greetings for the Christmas season.
This year, as all the Christmas days that have passed since that Christmas Day in 1944 that we spent in Europe, my thoughts shall return to the events of those fateful happenings.
I was more fortunate than many for that Christmas Eve I received a Christmas gift. It was a letter from home, the first in several weeks.
This year again there will be many people away from home for the holiday season, in fact for many there is no home--war orphans, refugees, enslaved political prisoners. They will receive no letter as I did. So on this Christmas within the warmth of my own home I shall bow down and ask God to bless those cold, hungry, freedom-loving people and to comfort them till their day of deliverance. I shall pray God will bless the families of our departed comrades as well.
Will you join me this year in prayer; it will take but a few moments from the great joys of this day.
A word of thanks to all who were so kind in forwarding material for our "Cub.' 1 am seeking information about our ladies auxiliary for next Cub; can you help me?
Your 1958 Convention Committee is making plans for our 12th convention, more details later.
"SEE YOU IN SAVANNAH IN '57"
The Detroiters had their first fall gathering early this past October. (Picture at left) Bob and Libby Kelly played host and sponsor of this terrific evening affair. The evening's events opened with choice cocktails and highballs. With Indian summer still in control of our weather, Floyd Powell set up his telescope to view our neigh-bolt on the full moon. Frankly, 'twas a very interesting diversion. A few of the parlor games disclosed the tallest gal--the baldest male--and you know what!', Along about midnight, three grills were put into use. Gradually by 3 am., Bob bounced the last of us. Numbered among the guests were:
Bob and Libby Kelly (hosts)
Jim and Grace Burrell
Bob and Lucille Rutt
Floyd and Marilyn Powell
Jim and Lois Kenyon
Cass and Lorraine Williams

Memorandum to All 106th Men and WomenMany days have passed and many are to come before the annual Memorial Day of the 106th Infantry Division--December 16 --comes around again.
One thing is for sure--it will be here mighty quickly. Now, if at any time of the year you men of the 106th are spirited to exerting a little effort for our group, this is certainly the occasion. I can look back over ten years of summer reunions and winter Memorial dinners, and honestly say to myself that the Good Lord granted many of us a real favor. This favor, in my opinion, is the cherished events and incidents, deep friendships acquired; and the desire to partake in the future vacations and social gatherings scheduled for years to come.
Do you realize the uniqueness of this brother-in-arms association? How many associations or organizations can one belong to, where every walk of life and occupation mixes equally and in full harmony--the rich and the poor--the hearty and the lame--the Christian and the Jew--the Democrat and the Republican--the boss and the employee, etc.--group after group! Frankly, the more you settle back and analyze what we have in the 106th, I'm sure, if given 100 per cent serious thought, you, too, will grasp the feeling, appreciation and private urge to get up and strive to keep alive this small but tremendously important group called "our 106th Infantry Division Association."
I, for one, can only suggest ways and means by which you as individuals might put into use some of this appreciation. Basically, the only outstanding activity you need display is, living the 106th--not as the sign carrier type--nor like the street corner barker; but, if you would just keep the 106th in your letters and conversation. Advertise our name and its existence in your locality, with regularity, via the newspapers, social and travel columns.
Come next month, many of us still, and yet so many more, no longer make the supreme effort to gather (even a pair) in some place to continue the wonderful practice of remembering. There is not one of you who doesn't try to remember many a date--birthdays, weddings, the first of important events, those vacation days scattered throughout the year--you know what 1 mean. Well, it takes just one person, two to make it a date, and three to become a party. What I'm trying to say is--please don't wait for the other fellow to move, for you can almost bank on the fact that he is doing the same. Each and every one of you knows the spark of enthusiasm that emanates when one party calls just about the same time the other is about to make the same move on any mutual suggestion. It could be the same here with even as small an event as meeting December 16th. I would like to carry another thought along for you just a spell. Many of you are fortunate to still receive and correspond once a year with a few old close Division friends. Usually the Christmas card is the reminder. 1, for one, would love to see each of us take an extra five minutes to pen a good downright neighborly note in conjunction with this season's cards. It is here that you finally have the urge and obligation and equipment to remind others that you are still in one piece.
I can readily see that anytime else during

106th Division Operations from German Point of ViewExtracts from a book--"The Fatal Decisions," Published by William Sloan Associates, New York 1956.
Part 6--The Ardennes by General Hasso Von Manteuffel, Commanding Fifth Panzer Army. (Note--The right flank of this army attacked the 106th Division).
Pages 270-271--The Cutting Off of the Schnee Eifel and the Battle of St. Vith.
"The left wing of the LXVIth Army Corps was noticeably slower in its advance into the Eifel. This endangered our plan for rapidly sealing off the Schnee-Eifel. This, however, was the essential preliminary to the next stage of our advance which was to be through Schonberg to St. Vith., St. Vith, the center of a considerable road work, was as important a point on this sector as was Bastogne on the Army's left flank.
"The events of the day (16 Dec) in the area of the Army's right hand corps was disappointing. The corps failed to keep up with the time schedule I had laid down for its advance. I hoped the time lost could be made up by a continuation of the attack after dark. I therefore spent the night of December 16/17 with the staff of the /18th. People's Grenadier Division, which held the key to the operations on this part of the front. Thanks to the energy of the division commander, this division succeeded in capturing Schonberg on the morning of the 17th. This success seemed to show that the corps could now make up the time lost; the events of the day however, did not realize this hope.
"Despite an excellent performance on the

"SEE YOU IN SAVANNAH IN '57"
Cain's MessageO, GIVE THANKS!
As this is being written, the world is faced, with the shaping up of three crises: the events in Egypt revolving around the seizure of the Suez Canal by the government of that African nation, the tensions in the Near-East arising thru fear, and the growing revolt of the people of Hungary against the hardships imposed upon them by their Communist-controlled masters.
Here in our own beloved country, we are in the midst of a great political campaign to determine who shall be our elected leaders in our national and local governments.
By the time these words are read, the crises abroad may be over, the threats curtailed, the tensions eased, the injustices righted. We pray that the opposing factions in each situation will see and know the futility of force to gain lasting ends.
On this side of the Atlantic, the tumult and the shouting of the elections will be past. Then when we as a people once more resume our usual tasks we shall be secure in the knowledge thin whoever has won has won by the choice of the majority and above all by peaceful means.
At this same season in the year, throughout the length and breadth of our fair land, we observe a national Day of Thanksgiving. From the dawn of recorded 'history to the present day, nations and peoples have paused at different times in their lives to express their thanks to their God for blessings bestowed upon them But it remains for us as a nation to observe such a Thanksgiving Day annually. And it is entirely fitting that we should do so.
Think on the blessings that we 'have received and enjoyed in the past and continue to enjoy to this day.
We have never suffered a famine, despite occasional failure of some crops; we have and enjoy abundant natural resources; our living standards are about the highest in the world today; we live at peace with our immediate neighbors; for over a hundred years our land has not been set on by foes (though some of our insular possessions have been); our cities and towns for nearly a hundred years have been spared damage from war such as many of us saw a few years ago in Europe (though, again, we must except some in our insular possessions): we have the right to express ourselves freely by speech and by press; we have the right to be secure in our persons and our homes; we have the right to practice our religious beliefs without interference by man or state.
In truth, we have been singularly blessed by our Creator; in many cases far beyond what we deserve.
As we approach this season of Thanksgiving, let us not limit our celebration to feasting, visiting, attendance at football games and other sports. Rather, and foremost, let each one of us gather in his own place of worship, give thanks to Almighty God for His blessings and mercies so freely given to us and pray that God's grace may be upon us in the days and years to come to the end that we may live accordingly as He wills it.
"O, give thanks unto the Lord for He is good and His mercy endureth forever."

Memorial ReportSubject: Use of the Memorial Fund for other than educational purposes.
As Memorial Chairman and after having looked over the files, I find that the fund is not active enough to maintain the interest of would-be donors. Up until now the emphasis has been to gather data on departed comrades and their next of kin. From my observations, I find some reluctance by the relatives of our departed to discuss a subject as this, which is bound to revive sad memories. I think we have prevailed upon them enough. What information, association members can offer, is usually very sketchy, although given with the spirit of trying to give as much help as possible, and has been appreciated.
The men who have handled the fund 'before me, on the whole, have done a noteworthy job, and deserve much credit. Although, after one has seen the long list of our Division members who have given so much, it seems that we are doing little in comparison. It is my firm belief that we should do something more than just talk to perpetuate the unforgotten sacrifices of the men lost in World War II and Korea.
Accordingly, I have a suggestion along these lines. First, I would mention that due to the "benefits for War orphans"' program that is now in operation, we presumably will not need such a large balance as heretofore in our Memorial Fund. I therefore suggest the following plan. We appoint Doug Coffey, who has been over to Belgium in recent years, to look into the possibility of having a monument constructed in St. Vith in memory of the members of the 106th Division, who gave their all. I suggest that we could use up to $1,500.00 of the fund as a fitting tribute to our departed Comrades. It is my fervent hope that this program can be under way by next convention. It is suggested that all members of the Board of Director; send me a note of approval or disapproval. The reason for this procedure is that time is of the essence. In your own homes you can give the subject more thought. As a rule at our meetings at Conventions we are pressed for time and cannot indulge in such lengthy and weighty problems. It is my opinion that we set an amount up to the $1,500.00 which I have previously mentioned. I also suggest letting Doug Coffey compose the wording for the inscription, as I know it is a project close to his heart and he is one in our midst who is fully aware of the sacrifices made during and after the "Battle of the Bulge" by so many of our Division.
In closing, I want once again to reaffirm our desire to help any of our members who are in dire and desperate need. If it is in our scope, we endeavor to help in any way possible. Of course, any information relative to any member of our Division, killed or missing in action, or who passed away after the war is always desired. One more item to mention. Any next of kin who may have remarried and would not like to be contacted in any way or who would like to have delivery of the Cub stopped, or for anyone else or any other reason, please let time know and we can make a note of it in our records.
JOHN J. REYNOLDS, JR.,
Memorial Chairman John will appreciate any comments from you regarding memorial fund. Will supply you with date of K. 1. N.'s next of kits. He asks as to forward any information we have to him. Let's all help John, he will do a good job for us.--Ed.
Memorandum(Continued from Page 4)
the year, the art of letter writing with many, just isn't there, except to relate to their creditors maybe, why this is that bill just can't be paid this here month. I can sympathize with you that it 'tis exhausting at times. So, again, how's about a barrage of Season's Greetings notes to old 106th buddies. Somewhere in this note, state briefly your interest in the Association, and maybe a braggadocious remark or two. From there please send me a set of the addresses and maybe a note of background on each man. We'll do the remaining promoting from here. If we are successful in gaining a new member, you will get the word to have him do the same with some other friend of his. Therefore, maybe a systematic chain reaction will begin to set in.
Earlier in this memorandum to you all (as Jim Wells would say) I stated that many days have passed (10 years to be exact). How many days are to come before we can boast that our own initial effort to gain at least one new man has come to pass. You, and only you, will know if sufficient effort and follow-up has been exercised. My membership drive foundation is only as solid as each of you.
May I hear from all of you before Christmas? Even a postal card would give me my material.
In case I'm swamped with names abundant, I'd like to say for the Detroiters, my wife, Shirley, and myself--may you all have a Joyous Christmas and a Healthy and Successful New Year. May the December gatherings be many too.

106th Division Operations(Continued from Page 5)
part of the troops and the officers of all ranks, the infantry corps was incapable of carrying out the attack with the necessary violence and within the time limit that would insure cooperation with the Army's two panzer corps. Nor could it quickly capture the vital road junction of St. Vith, which was a pivot in the enemy's defensive position, and which it was essential that we seize for the sake of the operations by the left wing of the Sixth Panzer Army. "The enemy forces threatened with encirclement in the Schnee Eifel attacked westward, straight across the advance of the corps' left hand battle group. This held the Corps up and it failed to capture St. Vith on the 17th."
