"SO LONG, GUD BUDDIESB- 88Z TYARBIBD,
AS HE BIDS FAREWELL TO TTYDALL FIELD
Corporal Billy Grout, known to thou-
sands as "The Yardbird", is finally to
get his cherished wish- a chance to
become a pilot in the Army Air Forces
His readers, (and they are many thou-
sand strong, for the "TARGET" has a
large mailing list), may be surprised
to learn that the author of such illit-
erate masterpieces possesses the men-
tal capacity to pilot a bomber or a
pursuit ship for Uncle Sam. However,
Billy's brain is every bit as sharp as
the wit he has often shown in his week-
As Tyndall's most popular character,
"The Yardbird" has amused the readers
of his column for the past seven months
through twenty-seven issues of the
"TARGET". During this time he watched
his column become the leading feature
of the paper and saw numerous imita-
tions of his brainchild in other camp
One of the most amusing incidents
that occurred during Billy's association
with the "TARGET" happened during the
early days of March, when excerpts from
his column were used in a small town
newspaper. The editor did not credit
"Gud Buddy" for the material and hb
immediately dispatched this editor a
scathing letter, signing it as "The
Yardbird, fl"t In the following issue
of that newspaper appeared humble apol-
ogies and further "Yardbird" witticisms
signed, "The Yardbird, #1". *****
More pictures and facts about Billy
will appear in next week's issue.
The following are excerpts from a letter from Lt. Henry G. Lee to his mother
and dad and sister while on duty with Lt. Gen. Jonathan M. Wainright, dated Feb.
"I am proud to be a pait of the fight that is being made here and would not,
even if it were possible, leave here until it is over and we have won, as we in-
evitably will. By "we" I mean my country in general. Bataan may fall, but the
eventual outcome of the war is fore-ordained."
"I have seen some horrible things happen and have had my share of narrow es-
capes, but I have also seen some wonderful acts of courage, self-sacrifice and
loyalty. At last I have found what I have searched for all my life---a cause and
a job in which I can lose myself completely and to which I can give every ounce
of my strength and my mind."
"And I have mentally and spiritually conquered my fear of death. Pure animal
terror---(a protective emotion cannot be entirely subdued by the mentality but it
can, and has been controlled."
"My prayer each night is that God will send you, who are suffering so much
more than I am, His strength and peace. During the first days of war I also
prayed for personal protection from physical harm but now that I may be given
strength to bear whatever I must bear and do so that those men under .me will have
every reasonable chance."
"Life and my family have been very good to me and have given me everything I
have ever really wanted, and should anything happen to me here, it will not be
like closing a book in the middle as it would have been had I been killed in the
first few days of the war. For in the last two months I have done a life-time of
living and have been a part of one of the most unslefish, cooperative efforts
that has ever been made by any group of individuals."

Intimate Glimpses rJac
SERGEANT JACK H. PARKS left for Fort Myers
on Monday. This was his column. Origina-
ted by him, it has appeared in twenty-one
issues of the "TARGET".
This space is purposely short, because
J volumes can be written about Jack Parks.
Jack not only originated this column, but
the "TARGET" itself was his brainchild, and
it was he who thought up its very apropos
Jack is not a soldier in the military
sense of the word, but this Army would be a
very sad place without a few men like him.
The absence of his familiar figure,. with
its warmth and humanness, is already great-
'-.. ly missed. He has left nothing but friends
S'* here at Tyndall Field, of which he was as
---.- ...-. .much a part as is the PX or Suwanee Road.
No, he is not a military soldier, as Colonel Maxwell admitted when he told Jack
that he had "the worst right hand salute of any man on the post"-- and perhaps we
are prejudiced, but anyone who knew Parks won't deny that we have been privileged.

Almost every squadron reporter has
expressed his organization's regrets
over the loss of so many of their bud-
dies in the recent Fort Myers transfer.
We think that Pfco James J. Freeman of
the "BROWNIES" covered the subject ex-
"...Empty barracks...no long chow
lines...short mail calls...plenty of
room at the PX counters...seats on the
P.C. buses...yes, the gang is gone.
It doesn't seem like the same place,
but it is- minus some swell guys. How-
ever, we still have a job to do, a
big job, v th Less men to do it. It's
going to mean plenty of long hours
and tough work...but we'll see it
through...The War waits for no one.
There are rumors of a new bunch com-
ing in. So what? We know darn well
that they won't be able to step in
and take over immediately. It is up
to us to take hold of them and teach
them so that we can maintain and up-
hold the swell record of the Field."
With so many men leaving the Field
for one reason or another, shortages
of skilled men have resulted in var-
ious departments. Capable .draftsmen
and illustrators are urgently needed
in the Department of Training, as are
model airplane builders.
Pvts. Gus Johnson, Carroll James and
Ed Kirschner, awaiting appointments as
Aviation Cadets, have turned out a to-
tal of 65 model planes in their work-
shop next to the dispensary. These
models are essential to the teaching
of Aircraft Recognition in the Gunnery
School. These men are due to leave
the field shortly and experienced buil-
ders are needed to take their place.
So if you have pursued model plane ma-
king as a hobby, you now have a chance
to use your hobby to aid your country.
Report to the Classification Office
at Post Headquarters if you are quali-
fied for such work, or contact Lt. D.
K. Hill of the Department of Training.

A 66TH "STUFF"
n old saying, "the grass grows
greener on the other side of the fence",
has been forcibly brought home to the
66th. The spacious lawns of Headquart-
ers Service and the 66th have no fence
dividing them (as yet). Sgt. Hinshaw's
grass planting detail fired the imagin-
ation of Headquarters Squadron and
soon they too had a detail out.
A friendly spirit of rivalry sprang
up, but wewere happy and content know-
ing that our yard would outshine theirs.

The story broke when Headquarters
inadvertently reported in the "Target"
last week that they had had grass pl-
anters outas early as 4:00 A.M., under
cover of darkness, you might say.
Our only comment is that it is a sad
state of affairs when you have to get
up in the middle of the night to uproot
your neighbor's grass and transplant
it on your side.
One result of this horticultural ban-
ditry is that Private Roulo has now

ORDNANCE DEPARTMENT SPONSORS ARMAMENT
COURSE AT NIGHT FOR OFFICE EMPLOYEES
Perhaps the most technical of Ord-
nance work is in the Armament shop un-
der the capable supervision of T/Sgt.
Burnett, where guns are cleaned and
repaired for use in the intensive
training of the Aerial Gunner. Among
Sgt. Burnett's men is a night force,
which cleans and repairs the guns used
during the day so that firing the fol-
lowing day is not interrupted. Many
of his men have or are attending an
Armament school, where they are given
a more thorough technical knowledge of
their work. Lt. Hutchinson is also
conducting an Armament class for men
who work in offices and the ammunition
department, who otherwise would have
no working knowledge of guns. Complete
mortality records are kept of each gun;
rounds fired, parts replaced, that a
check made will give the life history
of each gun.
