Vol. I No. 15 Air Corps Gunnery School, Tyndall Field, Florida May 2, 1942


TYNIALL POET TO WIN'PHONE CALL HOME


Colonel William W. Welsh, Chief of
Staff, SEACTC, who visited Tyndall last
Saturday to inspect the operation of
the gunnery ranges.

,SENATOR PEPPER INVITED TO
SPEAK ON TYNDALL AIR SHOW
Senator Claude Pepper, one of the
most illustrious personalities to ever
represent the State of Florida at the
nation's Capital, has been invited to
be the speaker on Tyndall's second
"Thirst for Knowledge" program.
The show will be broadcast over WDLP
from the USO Building on Monday night
at 7:30 P.M. Major Shipman, the spon-
sor, announces that Senator Pepper has
been asked to speak in connection with
the program's policy to present out-
standing state and national figures on
the topic of "The Purchase of War Sav-
ings Bonds and Stamps."
Private Jerry Flacks will again be
the program's quiz master.


The Secretary of :Iar has stressed
his desire that each man in the Army
send a letter home on liother's Day,
May 10th, as an expression of love and
reverence. In keeping with this de-
sire, the local USO organization is
offering a free telephone call home to
the man at Tyndall who submits the
best four-line verse on any subject
relating to "Mother."
You don't have to be an expert or
even a semi-pro at poetry--you'll be
competing with amateur poets on the
Field. All of you budding bards who
have been trying to rhyme "June" with
"Moon" can now try your hand with
"Sister and Brother" and "Father and
Mother."
The contest closes on Thursday, May
7th at 5:00 P.M. That gives you five
days to think up your four-line verse
and hand it in on a slip of paper with
your name, rank, and organization, to
Post Headquarters in care of the
"TARGET".
The local USO organization will not
only present the winning contestant
with a telephone call to his mother at
any point in the continental U.S., but
will also award the writer of the sec-
ond best verse an opportunity to per-
sonally record his message on a phono-
graph record to be sent to the folks
back home.
All entries will be judged by the
combined staffs of the U0S organization
and the "'liA'T." The decision of the
judges will be final and the winner
will be announced in next Saturday's
"TARGET."'

LEST WE FORGET. Mother's Day is Sunday, May 10, 1942.

What kind of a mother is your mother? Is she a flapper? Is she a selfish,
self-centered doll? Does she always think of herself first, last, and always?
Does she refuse to deny herself, so that you may have something you may thinkyou
need? When you are sick, does she refuse to "put herself out", to nurse you?
Does she refuse to stay awake when you need her? Does she always think of her-
self and not of others?

Or, does she always refuse to think of herself, her own comfort, her own
health, and instead think of you?

My Mother always thinks of her children first and herself last. I wonder if
your mother is not like that, too.

Mother is a wonderful creature. No one can adequately describe her. No one
can ever adequately repay her. The best we can do for her is to make of ourself
a man that SHE can be proud of.

Mother looks for a letter, on Mother's Day. Are you going to let her down?
There is hardly anything Tyndall Field could be more proud of than to know that
every soldier and officer of Tyndall Field has written to Mother.


LEST WE FORGET. Mother's Day is Sunday,





All pilots at Tyndall will be inter-
ested in knowing that the Field's
first Link Trainers began operation
yesterday. Although the butt of nu-
merous jokes, the Link Trainer is un-
doubtedly one of the most important
mechanical contrivances used in the
training of a pilot.
The Link Trainer, for those of you
not acquainted, is an ingenious device
that is employed to teach the art of
radio and instrument ("blind") flying
on the ground. The Trainer has be-
come invaluable in the instruction of
this type of flying which is extremely
complex and is much easier to assimi-
late on the ground, where mistakes and
faults can easily be talked over, de-
monstrated and explained.
Every Army Pilot is required to have
a minimum of 4 hours in 6 months, or
10 hours during the year, of instru-
ment flying. Tyndall's Link Trainers
are under the supervision of Lt. C.F.
Brunner, assisted by Sergeants Sheri-
dan, McGee, Reagan, and Pvt. Moye.


May 10, 1942.
--Herbert T. Wilson, Post Chaplain




Going "all out" towards providing
social activities for the boys on the
Field, Director Thomas Oliver of the
Panama City USO, announces that begin-
ning this afternoon at 4:30 and last-
ing until 7:00 P. M. there will be a
Tea Dance with entertainment by the
"Five Notes." If this innovation meets
with popular approval by the boys, it
will be made a permanent Saturday af-
ternoon feature.
Dancing classes have been switched
to Monday nights and all men interes-
ted are requested to leave their names
at the USO building in advance. Mrs.
Kay Goodman, an expert terpsichorean,
is in charge of the instruction.
Another new feature will be free
Bingo games on Wednesday evenings with
useful prizes being awarded to the win-
ning contestants. Cameras are avail-
able for use without charge. Also,
due to the numerous requests by Tyn-
dall's amateur-expert photographers, a
complete darkroom will be constructed
within the next few weeks.

Master Sergeant Postlewait


As an aerial gunnery school, Tyndall
Field's training program is vitally de-
pendent upon a smoothly and efficient-
ly operating Armament Department. For-
tunately, the air base has such a de-
partment.
Directing the armament work down on
the line are M/Sgt. Andrew B. Postle-
wait and M/Sgt. Harold I. Myers, both
of whom are veteran armorers.
Sgt. Postlewait enlisted in the Army
in 1925, and spent the following six
* years in the Infantry at Ft. Eustis,
Va. Since 1931 he has been in the Air
Corps, stationed most of the time at
Langley Field, Va., as an armorer.
He took a course at Chanute Field,
Ill., in 1932, and in 1939 completed a
master armorer's course at Lowry Field,
Colo. On Dec. 6, 1941, he came to
Tyndall Field.
A native ofValier, Pa., Sgt. Postle-
wait is known as one of the most reli-
able and conscientious workers on the
Field. He probably has held as great
a variety of jobs as anyone on the
Post, and in each one the Sergeant has
left a record of good performance. He
is a fast and industrious worker, and
he keeps his crews operating systemati-
cally at all times.
The creditable qualities demonstrat-
ed by Sergeant Postlewait have earned
for him the ,high regard and respect of
his superior officers and the men who
work with him from day to day.


Major Clarvoe


The Commanding Officer of a military
post the size of Tyndall Field has a
position involving tremendous respon-
sibility, and the many burdensome du-
ties of his office make necessary the
delegation to assistants of many tasks
which otherwise would fall upon his
shoulders.
This staff of assistants is headed
by the Executive Officer, and at Tyn-
dall this position is filled by effi-
cient Major Harold M. Clarvoe, known
affectionately to his friends as "Sli-
ck" due to his rapidly vanishing hair.
Major Clarvoe has had an interesting
and varied career covering a period of
more than thirty-five years.
Born and reared in Washington, D.C.,
the Post Executive was connected with
the Treasury Department in that city
from 1907 to 1917. In 1918, he enter-
ed the U. S. College of Veterinary
Surgeons and upon his graduation be-
came a veterinarian at Ft. Oglethorpe,
Ga. Following the war, he pursued his
studies further at the University of
Maryland in 1919, and at George Wash-
ington University in 1922.
In 1926, Major Clarvoe received his
commission in the 116th Field Artill-
ery, Florida National Guard. He came
to Tyndall on Jan. 5, 1942, from Camp
Blanding, Fla., where he was Executive
Officer of the First Battalion, 116th
Field Artillery. The Major's home is
in Tampa, Florida.

Lt. Jack Wilson had
a card from his ex-
room mate, Lt. pob
lf Dickman, saying, "I
am a married man
now."...From what I
hear, Lt. Bell has
dropped out of the
local Mann race...
Our Officers remind us of "Dr. Living-
stons" with these "Jungle" hats...YWe
* nominate Colonel Hyndman as one of the
busiest officers on the Post...'Twas
good to see Lt'. Mathis back at Tyndall
the early part of the week...Did you
see Chaplain McClelland sporting his
"Whites" last Sunday...Mayor Burkhart
of Lynn Haven announces that Lt. Ad-
kins, Capt. Gardner, Chaplain Wilson,
Capt. McCullough and Sgt. Charlie Gre-
en will serve on his City Council.
Colonel Maxwell has been practically
a stranger to the Post lately...It
seems his home-town paper wrote an
article concerning our Lt. Jesse A.
Nimocks, and stated that "Private Jes-
se A. Nimocks, etc..."....Major Flem-
ing is becoming quite ambitious; if
you will notice, ever so often he will
occupy one of the typewriters in Post
Headquarters. Wonder whose private
secretary he would like to be?....Lt.
Gabriel Powers, I hear, is catering to
a local red-head. That's O.K., Lt. P.,
I'll be gone soon and there will be no
competition...Glad to see Capt. Medof
back from Leave...Lt. Roberts can't
seem to make up his mind as to how he
should answer the telephone. Call him
up sometime and see if Sgt. Roberts or
Lt. Roberts will answer...We think
Captain Bryan one of Tyndall's most
efficient officers...and Lt. Nelson as
one of the friendliest..What's happen-
ed to Lt. Kingman...Apologies to MAJOR
Carnahan...My one ambition is to get
some good "dirt" on Lt. Samuels,...all
inside dope will be appreciated...A
hearty welcome to our journalism boss,

Corporal Everett Payne has returned
to us and came back "sweating"--as ev-
eryone does around the lst...Cpl. Wal-
ton (to be Sgt.,he hopes) has been run-
ning around picking up papers every-
where he goes. It seems I recall one
guy getting a "Section 8" by doing
just that thing..David Davis, Ord. Co.
was seen riding around P. C. with not
one, but six of the local choice gals;
wonder what he's got that the rest of
us don't possess?...That's O.K., Gar-
ner, there's another chance..It's Wal-
ter "Double Chin" Schroeder who's the
popular guy in the Message Center...
andto think only two stripes are keep-
ing Cpl. Sissom from asking Her...1XX
XWXXU is feeling quite low these
days. His one and only says, "I'd be
glad to go, LT."...Had a letter from
T/Sgt. Seth Wood, who is in O.C.S....
Woody says they're kinda tough out in
g'yromi i....The most familiar sight at
Post Headquarters in the morning is
Pvt. Avcrett and his broom...I know
one Sgt. that will have reached-his
goal if this new pay bill goes through,
and for a very special reason...They
tell me that Pvt. Bowman, Chaplain
Wilson's right hand man, used to be
the proud possessor of "two pieces of
silver."...Say, Evans, how did your
engagement turn out Wednesday night?
Jack Parks is back with us..Ben Alford
had better take some sound advice and
stay out of the night air...Sergeant
Red Brewer leaves on furlough the 1st
of May. Don't know what our local
belles are going to do while he is
gone. And how about our Post dignit-
aries that he drives around? And es-
pecially little Nell...she says she's
going to knit while
he's away...which I'm
sure isn't atall neces-
sary, this column will e
be glad to take care
of her....Here comes
Sadie Snoop, I'd bet-
ter stop before i get
censored.














L LT. ENGELBRECHT
ast week the boys who were on D.S.
to Dothan, returned. Glad to have you
back, boys.
What's this about Cpl. Douglas Har-
ris and Jewel Covington planning to
wed in June? At the rate our squadron
is going now we'll all be happily mar-
ried by June. At the present time we
have 27 married men and reports are
that there will be more soon. --DPA

S LT. MARCHESI
gt. Rex Terrell, back as 1st Serg-
eant, has the administration reins
well in hand.
We have quite a crew of keglers in
our outfit and not the least expert of
them is our C.O. He makes those pins
salute as they go down! As a tribute
to their prowess, the bowling squad is
often referred to as "Marchesi's Mur-
derers.
Good-luck to the boys who are leav-
ing for clerical school. It's too bad
they're leaving just as our new pool
table is arriving, but don't worry,
fellows, we'll save it for you!
Although nobody has asked us, the
men in the outfit want more parties in
the Recreation Bldg., more women and
more punch. --SS

O LT. WATSON
ne morning this week a heavy fog
lifted and there on the steps of hat-
chery No. #1 was Cpl. C. Poyner, fresh
from furlough. Blow the whistles,
sound the alarm, for laughter shall
ring within the barracks again!
And speaking of pleasant things, we
want to thank our C.0. for that swell
party an the beach the other afternoon.
Gulf swimming is safe this season,
all the "sharks" are gathered 'round
the new pool table.
The last two Saturdays have been no-
ticeably quieter...everybody acts so
homeloving...it seems as tho fun and'
funds go hand in hand. And G.B. Grout
is voted "Squadron Dawn Buster." --JW

LT. V TYI1.'.S
o start the ball rolling, our newly
equipped Day Room is really popular
these days and judging from the play
at the pool table, we might be able to
turn out a "Willie Hoppe."
Sgt. Jordy is sweating out his last
few days in the country and is itching
to go into town to set those female
hearts aflutter once more. Sgt. Dar-
rah, still talking about that Redhead
he left back home, says that blondes
are too much trouble.
We all wish convalescing Cpl. Glass
a speedy return to our fold.
Pfc. Cullen can't get his mind away
from that boat ride he took recently,
he says you can't beat Florida sun and
a Florida venus.
Pvt. Daly is back after a few weeks
at Sebring, Fla. --SGC

A wLT. TAYLOR
warm welcome to the men who just
returned from Napier Field and Phila-
delphia. And also, we see that "Ole
Wolf Hutchins" is back from his fur-
lough.
With parts arriving daily, it wont
be long before we'll be able to assem-
ble our pool table.
Believe it or not, some of the boys
think that a sun-tan is acquired by
one application of sun-burn. Ask Pvt.
Sheppard. --HHB

H ORDNANCE
ere's wishing all those men leaving
on furlough, a very pleasant leave.
And a ten-day visit to the North is
the plan of Lt. Mitchell as soon as he
gets his leave of absence.
We are wondering why Barracks No. 1
is in such a state of continual confu-
sion. Could it be that Private Earl
Killingsworth and his mail-order flute
are the reason?
Our nomination for the best file cl-
erk on the Post is Corporal Ira Nealis
of the Post Ordnance Office. When he
files anything, it is really filed.-RS

That box of real maple sugar that
Cpl. Phelps brought back was a rare

is still single, and that, judging f-an
the number of men who have returned

Results: The aforementioned radio bur-

working beautifully when he finished
with it, hut we have our own ideas as
to the cause of the mishap.
Angelletti is making a flower bed
out by the barracks, and it is easily

The Classification Section is the employment office of the Army. It's func-
tion is to place men in the Army in positions where they can be of the greatest
benefit to the service, taking into consideration their general fitness for the
particular job.
When a man enters the service, he is interviewed and pertinent information
concerning his occupational, educational and military experience is recorded on
a Soldier's Qualification Card, together with his grades on the Army General
Classification Test and the various aptitude tests the Army gives to determine
his capability. This card is kept up to date and accompanies the soldier where-
ever he goes and serves as an index to his ability. By consulting these records,
the Classification Section can assign a soldier to a position or task with which
he is familiar and capable of holding, thereby saving time and money that would
be spent in training untrained men to fill these necessary jobs.
After a man's active military service is terminated, his records may be turn-
ed over to the government agency in charge of placing men in civil life, and th-
ese records will be an important factor in determining what sort of civilian job
he is capable of holding.
The Classification Department at Tyndall Field is under the supervision of
Lieutenant Martin R. Tannen. His staff of enlisted men is headed by S/Sgt. Arth-
ur R. Edwards and includes Pfc. Irving Laffer and Pvt. James N. Mangum. The
Lieutenant and his crew can take the majority of the credit for the smooth and
efficient operation of the various departments on the Post, due to their interest
and judgment in the placing of departmental personnel.













BOXING MAJOR LEAGUE ROUND UP


Welcome news to Tyndall's pugilistic
enthusiasts is the announcement that
the Field's boxing ring is completed
and fully equipped even to lighting
fixtures for after-dark bouts.
As mentioned in last week's sports
page, all squadrons are urged to hold
elimination competition within their
groups to determine their represent-
atives of the various weight classes.
The winners of these contests will
then compete in the inter-squadron

Don't look now, but those Cleveland
Indians are burning up the American
League again. Under 24-year-old pilot
Lou Boudreau, the "collapsing" Indians
have built up a streak of 11 consecu-
tive wins and are sitting on top of
the heap by a margin of two games.
In the National League the Brooklyn
Dodgers are still on top and Dodger
fans are pleased no end that their
favorites, Walker and Camilli, are the
men supplying the power at the bat.
Dolph had quite a day on Thursday when
he almost single-handedly batted the
Brooks to victory over the Reds by cl-
outing out two homers and a single.
Baseball fans will note that it was
Camilli that President MacPhail was
trying to trade this winter despite
Dolph's winning of the most valuable
player award in his circuit.
The man who pitched the Detroit Ti-
gers to their pennants during Mickey
Cochrane's reign, Schoolboy Lynwood
Rowe, has been traded to the Dodgers.
Rowe, along with several others, holds
the American League record of consec-
utive wins at 16 straight.

OPENING DAY IN THE LINK TRAINER DEPARTMENT"








Jt /lwae4W/k4% aws^

From an unrevealed Army Camp comes
the story of a sleepy soldier who ap-
peared at his outfit's orderly room at
1:30 A. M. one morning, fully dressed
and completely equipped. The O.D. ask-
ed him what was the idea. "I'm ready,"
came the reply, "ready to leave." Fur-
ther questioning revealed that thesol-
dier dreamt that he was ordered to
prepare to leave for Australial

A newly enlisted soldier stepped in-
to the office of his company commander
at Camp Wolters, Texas. Standing be-
fore the captain's desk, he snapped
smartly to attention, saluted and stood
silent. The captain, hoping to refresh
the man's memory on military courtesy,
asked: "What do you say?" This phrase
must have been part of the vernacular
to the rookie. "Not much," he answered
"Whadda you say?"

Movie critics have several ways of
rating screen shows. Some use stars,
some bells, others employ check-marks
or letters of the alphabet. But the
men at Camp Davis, N. C., have their
own system of rating pictures at the
camp theaters. The shows they see
gain distinction by the number of Mil-
itary Police who show up to handle the
crowds. A three-M. P. picture is a sm-
ash hit!

An Irish soldier in France during
World War No. 1 received a letter from
his wife saying there wasn't an able-
bodied man left and she was going to
dig the garden herself.
Pat wrote at the beginning of his
next letter. "Bridget, please don't
dig the garden; that's where the guns
are."
The letter was duly censored, and in
a short time a lorry-load of men in
khaki arrived at Pat's house and pro-
ceeded to dig the garden from end to
end.
Bridget wrote to Pat in desperation,
saying that she didn't know what to do.
as the soldiers had the garden dug up,
every bit of it.
Pat's reply was short and to the
point: "Put in the spuds."
