..."and our Flag was still there"
Monday, September 13, marked the 129th anniversary of the writing
of the Star Spangled Banner..written in one of the gravest periods
in our country's history, it inspired the hearts of all Americans
and its glorious lines echoing down the corridor of the years, is a
singing flame in the breasts of America's fighting men.
Once again ,by the dawn's early light' our men are piling on the
beaches of the pacific..and on the battle-stained fields of war the
bombs are bursting fiercely, revealing by the 'rocket's red glare'
the struggle and the flight of clashing armies. Where peril is,
there flies our flag, the flag *that so proudly we hail."
Since that memorable day in 1814 when Francis Scott Key composed
his mortal epic of tne flag he loved so dearly the song and the
flag have weathered many storms together.
In the charnel-house of Gettysburg, the Army of the Potomac, posted
on the heights of Round Top and Cemetery Ridge, had suffered severe
losses in the first two days of the battle. It was their love for
the flag that enabled the Union forces on the third day, to stop and
finally break the back of pickett's desperate charge up the slope of
Cemetery Ridge and turn the tide of war in the North's favor.
In fever-ridden Cuba, the Spanlards firmly entrenched on the
eminence of San juan, had beaten off numerous attacks by the Rough
Riders. Then someone shouted, 'let's rally round the flag boys' in
a few minutes the hill of San Juan was ours and over the campfires
'by the twilight's last gleaming," rose the heroic notes of the Star
Spangled Banner.
It was the eve of battle. A chaplain attached to one of the
American units had Just concluded his prayer to the 'Lord, God of
Hosts,' for victory in the trying days ahead. The men asked him to
lead them in song. The song he chose for that evening would tomorrow
lead them in battle and on to the war's greatest victory. The song
was the enshrined composition of Key's, the victory...the magnificent
battle of the Argonne.
Over the great ice-house of the North Pole, planted there by peary,
waves the daring of our flag and riding at anchor in the southern-
most harbor of puntes Arenas, is a freighter flying our colors.
Always, through the years, our flag has been a symbol of the heart
at peace in America and in tne stirring beauty of our national an-
them, the oppressed and beaten of the world have found promise and
a -nw faith.
Today, America's sons are not at home. The rooms they once filled
are empty in the houses they once lived in. Deep in dream and sleep
they lay in the tangled approaches to a Japanese airdrome on New
Guinea...brightly, in the vales of Italy burn the fires of their
bivouac and there are many who are at endless rest in some corner
of a foreign field that is forever America's. By their courage,
they have given 'proof thru the night that our flag is still there.'
Softly, does freedom's colors wave over our brave, lightly does
it finger their still strength.. forever free. For the song lives
on...and the peace must follow!


pray now. Dont wait until you're on a combat mission, or
on an operating table, or in a foxhole.

The plea of a stranger is never as effective as the Plea of
a friend.

Get to your religious service. It is better to be sleepy
in chapel than fast asleep in the barracks.

Learn the Lord's prayer, the Our Pather. It's more useful
than knowing the words of the latest song hit.

Read your Bible. It's both GI and protestant, GI and Jewish,
GI and Catholic.

Be tolerant. When the other fellow treats someone well, he's
toadying; when you try the same game, you are using tact.

Remain pure. Yotucan't get to heaven by raising hell.

Rxasine your conscience every night. That's one policing de-
tail you should never try to goldbrick.

Don't be hypercritical. When the other fellow acts that way,
he is ugly; when you do, it is nerves. When he's set in his
ways, he's obstinate; when you are, it's firmness.

fell it to the chaplain. He's just your local minister or
your parish priest in uniform.

Major Loren E. Bryan
Commands T/F's
Thursday, September 16,. marked the second anniversary of
the Air Service Command's 86th Sub-Depot, the organization
that "Keeps 'en Flying" here at Tyndall Field.
Under the able direction of Major Loren A. Bryan, commanding
officer since its inception, the 86th Sub-Depot has kept pace
with the swift expansion of the Army Air Forces. From a small
beginning two years ago, the Sub-Depot has grown until it no'
numbers almost 400 civilian employees and officers.
For the information of those not familiar with the Air

Service Command's functions, the
which is designed to operate
the station enginnering and
supply activities. It oper-
ates under the direct control
of the control depot to which
it is assigned. There are
twelve control depots which
operate directly under the
Commanding General, Air Ser-
vice Command, Patterson Field,
Fairfield, Ohio. The control
depot for this area is located
at Brookley Field, Mobile,
Alabama. Brigadier General J.
A. Mollison is the commanding
general of the Mobile Air Ser-
vice Command.
Early in its history, the Air
Service Command adopted the
slogan "Keep 'em Flying." This
is literally what the Sub-De-
pot does. It services the
planes at Tyndall Field and
keeps them in tip-top flying
condition at all times; it
procures and furnishes all the
supplies which are needed to
carry on this huge volume work.
From an incredibly small be-
ginning, the Army Air Forces
has in the short space of two
years grown tobe the mightiest
air force ever created by any
nation. The Air Service Com-
mand is justifiably proud of
its part in this achievement.
The AoS.C. is largely a civ-
ilian organization. It is man-
ned by 300,000 civilians, and
the military management con-
sists of approximately 8,000
officers. Another 7,000 off-
icers and 150,000 enlisted men
are under its command being
trained for activities over-
seas. The majorityof the per-
sonnel are highly skilled mech-

"I feel mighty proud to have
passed this course and that I am
going to have the privilege of
entering advanced gunnery train-

Now that Italy has capitulated,
we may reasonably expect to have
(Ankara) Turkey gracing our con-
ference tables long before the
Thanksgiving season rolls around.
If we get Hungary before then,
there's always the Japanese Diet-
heavily bombed Tokyo toast for
supper and a tall glass of Vichy
for tomorrow's aerial hangover.

Of late it has been whispered
in high Nazi circles that Der
Feuhrer is h, ing another siege
of obsession.- This time it is
anthropology as witness the 'cap-
ture' of Italy's former Dictator
by Nazi paratroopers. In the
person of lhe very Ill Duoe, pro-
fessor Hitler has acquired for
himself the only white elephant
extant in Europe.

During the last visit by Allied
bombers, large oil tanks stored
on the docks of Makassar in the
Dutch Celebes were hit and the
oil began to flow. While resting
in his favorite chair, a sparse-
haired Japanese colonel of in-
fantry received a totally unex-
pected hot oil shampoo. By this
time thoroughly dissatisfied with
his post and anxious to prevent
the further staining of his es-
teemed 'Morris,' the irate Sam-
urai had ordered an antimacassar
to replace Makassar.

Resolved to keep German losses
at a minimum, the German news
agency DNB in its announcements
for September 13, said that three
more Germans had been executed
for 'defeatism.' That makes- three
more to be added to the total of
Germans killed in Russia. Cor-
rectly stated, the figures now.

old and has had a fairly busy"
and interesting summer as a
member of the S.S. Life Guard
Prior to entering the AAF in
October, 1942, Doug was em-
ployed as a steel worker.
During his three year high
school career he starred for
two years at the tackle posi-
tion, and as a blocking back
in his senior year, on his
high-school gridiron team.
However, Doug's claim to
fame is his trip to Pasadena,
Calif., in 1940 as unofficial
mascot of the undefeated, un-
tied and unscored upon Duke
Blue-Devils. That was the
year that saw a comparatively
mediocre Southern California
eleven score a touchdown in
the last ten seconds of play
in the Rose Bowl classic and
win out by a score of 7-3.
When asked about post-war
plans, Mims confided that he
has a cousin in the beer in-
dustry and has been asked to
go to work for him. In view
of the drought of draft dis-
pensed suds in this vicinity
we are confident that Mims
will apply himself most earn-
estly in the peaceful days
to come.

Germany Fighting
On Four Fronts
When Adolf Hitler started
this war and had knocked Po-
land to the ground, he made a
promise to the German people.
He pointed with pride to his
non-aggression pact with Rus-
sia, and declared that never
again would the German people
have to fight on two fronts.
Like so many of Hitler's
promi,"s, that one has been
thorougii broken.
Instead of just the one
front that Hitl-er promised,
the German people are now
fighting enemies on four
One side--the side that is
still generally looked upon as
the main front--is on the
English channel, where Hitler
must keep thousands of his
troops, waiting for an inva-
The second front was opened
when Hitler struck into Rus-
sia. That front, at first so
successful fbr him, is now his
biggest headache.
The third front is in the
air-the constant aerial bom-
bardment which is wreaking
havoc in German industry and
The fourth and newest front
is on the south-in Italy.

Bitter Fighting
At Salerno
Sharp resistance confronted
the American troops who landed
south of Naples at Salerno.
General Mark Clark's Fifth Ar-
my, after having little dif-
ficulty in establishing a
strong beachhead, ran into
trouble as the still-efficient
Nazi army rushed to give
treatment to the wound in
Europe's "soft under belly."
There was bitter fighting.
For a while it seemed that
the Americans might be pushed
back into the sea. In fact,
at one time the Germans claim-
ed that the United States
troops were being withdrawn.
Then sea-borne reinforcements,
strong aerial blows and a pow-
erful barrage from warships
turned the tide again. With
General Montgomery's British
Eighth Army rushing up from.

the south, the week ended with
the outlook bright.
From the meager reports
which were received from the
front lines, it was evident
that the fighting at Salerno
was the bitterest that the
Americans have yet encounter-
ed. The German air force, ap-
parently bolstered by planes
rushed from the home front,
gave plenty of trouble. The
casualty list probably will
be long.
Added to the Allies-occupied
territory as a sidelight to
the Salerno battle was the
island of Capri, 20 miles or
so off Naples. Remember the
song of eight or nine years
ago? It's the same place.

A ir Forces Get
Little Action
Aerial warfare over Europe
during the past week was com-
paratively quiet except for
the battles over the Salerno
Flying Fortresses Wednesday
attacked German aircraft fac-
tories in the vicinity of Par-
is, but the RAF has not been
on any major night raids since
September 6.
So far this month, the AAF
Fortresses have attacked 14
targets, four of them air-
craft plants and nine of them
Nazi airfields. Thus German
air strength seems to be the
main objective--the strength
which resists raids on indus-
trial centers and which, if
not weakened, could make the
big drive against Germany an

They used to have a rather
stupid allergy to surrender,
preferring to die rather than

But, with the surprise with-
drawal from Kiska, they seem
to have adopted new tactics.
This week they moved out of
hotly-contested Salamaua be-
fore the advance of Australian
and American forces, and beat
a nimble though confused re--

treat to the neighboring base
of Lae.
There, the Allies were smash-
ing ahead, breaking through

Russians Move

Rapidly Ahead
Russia used to be referred
to as the bear that walks like
a man. :2ut nowadays the Rus-
sians have more resemblance to
a panther.
They are leaping ahead with
great strides, tearing big
slices of territory out of the
Ukraine which the Germans
seized,in their first advances
into Russia.
They have almost captured
vital Bryansk--some Soviet
troop-s by-passed that base
in an attempt to prevent Ger-
man retreat--and are drawing
ever closer to the big indus-
trial and rail center of Kiev.
They recaptured Novorossisk,

Black Sea naval base which has
long been in German hands.

An Army Begins
To Move
For nearly two years the
British have been building a
large and powerful army in
Syria. Intensive training has
made the little-known Ninth a
powerful striking force.
Mysterious reports from Tur-
key and Sweden say that the
Ninth Army has sailed from its
bases in the Middle East. The
typewriter strategists have
pretty well decided that the
Ninth is going to attack the
Perhaps Crete, the one-time
Greek Island which saw the
Nazis test glider-borne troops
on a large scale, will. be the
first target. It would give
the British a springboard from
which to leap at Greece and
thus start on the ancient in-
vasion road through the Bal-
kans to the heart of Europe.

The Symbol of the

Army Air Forces

T HE symbol of the Army Air Forces is a white star in a
blue circle. We paint it on the wings of all our planes.
Men watch for this insignia--from the deck of a troop
transport in the Coral Sea, from fox holes in a South
Pacific jungle, from the bridge of a lonely tanker in Alaskan
waters. Tired boys, far from home, battle-sore and facing
death, look up with red-rimmed eyes and see our emblem
in the sky-and cheer.
Still others of our sons are waiting and watching for this
symbol-General Wainwright's men and those who fought
at Wake and Guam. They stand behind the barbed wire
of Japanese prison camps. What will our white star, borne
on avenging wings, mean to them? The Germans hold
prisoners too, haggard men who with all their courage
endure the weary days until we come.
The white star is more than a design painted on fabric
or steel. It is the living symbol' of our own flesh, our own
blood, our own wounds, our own tears, our own fierce
anger. It is a sign to all men who live in darkness and in
chains. We Americans have put that star in the sky. We
must keep it there. It is a sacred symbol, for it glows with
Freedom's holy light.

Skunk Hollow

The good news in "Skunk'Hollow"
this week is: The "E" flag is back
with us again after visiting Squad-
ron C for a week. The "E" has found
its home in "Skunk Hollow." Now
you find our boys singing a tune of
"Springtime in the Rockies" that
goes like this:

"See that 'E' flag in Skunk Hollow
Waving gently in the breeze
It's the einblem we all follow
Wearing dirty d- fatigues
Our C. O. we will remember
When we treat that housemaid's
As the one who did convince us
It takes work to get that 'E'."
At last T/Sgt. Welch and Cpl.
Childers can stop sweating. The
blessed event has arrived' in each
case. Both of the men have newly.
arrivedd additions in their family
Squadron "E's" write up in Tyn-
dall Target, Vol. 2, No. 33, dated 11
Sept., 1943, praising the competence
of the "Gold Bricking" course car-
ried on 'at "Skunk Hollow" was ap-
preciated by all concerned (hope the
green-eyed monster hasn't turned up
in our midst). After all, free pub-
licity is a great thing. In view of
the interest shown by the reporter
at Squadron E the personnel of the
Pool (E flag) Squadron has unani-
mously voted to extend to him a
scholarship in our College. With this
training E Squadron may not be so
allergic to the "E" flag.

known about the Post. For a long

quently we took little part in Post
But things have changed. Already
our volleyball team is leading the
league, 'with several victories and no
defeats. Our representatives at the
weekly Quiz program last week
brought home the banner from the
69th. Pvt. "Tex" Johnson, of the
25th, was high man for both groups.
We are entering teams in all ath-
letic events, and expect to take top
honors in a goodly number of them.
If any outfit cares to engage us in
in any. event, give us a ring at 3160.
Our personnel joins in thanking
Special Service for its part in equip-
ping our new Day Room.
Pfc. Alexander is back on the ball
again, now that he's sporting that
good conduct award and his stripes.
Even the new beer parlor started
running out when Cpl. Tuscan began
patronizing it. He and Sgt. Matalik
were just too much.
According to the weekly weight
chart, T/Sgt. Seagle better consult
the flight surgeon. His weight, ac-
cording to the record, dropped 21
pounds since last week. It might be
attributed to that new car and a
three-day pass.
Maybe the Medics are afraid to
tackle our volley ball team. We can't
seem to get that game lined up with

Squadron D

Three weeks to go! That's the
thought uppermost in each of the
boy's minds now. The course is half
over. The Skeet shooting this week
proved a lot of fun and interesting
even though most of the fellows
have black and blue shoulders to
prove that they were indulging in
some plain and fancy practice.
We have seen the Turret and
Machine Gun exams come and go
and are still with the class. Things
are becoming routine and we are be-
ginning to like the hustle and bustle
that goes with the course.
Saturday's inspection saw us tie.
for second place and .bout a hun-
dred of the fellows were allowed to
visit the metropolis that is Panama
City. As one fellow said, "We walk-
ed three blocks west, two south, one
north, and two east and were out of
town." We told you so fellows, but
now that you have seen it for your-
self you should hope that you move
on from here--pity the poor perman-
ent party.
Monday dawned bright and clear
and the vacant office of our Adjut-
ant, Lt: Sayre, reminded us that it
was school days beginning again for
him. Yep, he's in class 43-43.
After fifteen weeks we saw the
day arrive that was "S" day for Sgt.
Dewey. "S" day was the day that
Dewey was swer ting ince he grad-
uated with Class 43-23. It represent-
ed to him, "Shipment Day" and it
was Tuesday of this past week. Three
classes came to know the diminutive
sergeant and around the squadron
he was a great help. We all wish
the best of luck to him and will cer-
tainly miss him.
Last Sunday, the Orderly Room
was as busy as Grand Central Sta-
tion and all of a sudden the noise
that accompanys the giving out of
well earned passes to town, and even
the usual long distance phone calls
stopped. No, the C. 0. didn't come
in the front door, for out of the
smoke we saw the figure of Cpl.
"Barrymore" Lagani, the bard of the
Squadron, giving one of his inimit-
able recitations. He was doing "Hus-
tler Joe" for the instructors and the
first sergeant and we don't wonder
that he is doing all right in his
course. After reciting the several
hundred lines that the poem con-
tains he did the "Face on the Bar-
room Floor."
There should be a place on the en-
tertainment progr.:m at one of the
G. I. gatherings, be it impromptu or
planned. The instructors were of one
mind that at their next party and
dance he would have to have a spot
on the Drogram. In the meantime he
is drafting an original squadron
poem and keeping us entertained
with his never ending rhymes and
poems and he never seems to exhaust
the supply.

average amount of policies
subscribed to was $4,390. To-

High scores are still being made

The lesson in Military Courtesy en-

Squadron F

Well, another class has come and
the old one has gone, but Squadron
F goes on and on. Pretty corney
poetry, but true, nevertheless. A few
of the boys had trouble with the
Psychological Department but there
were enough left to graduate. Inci-
dentally, a tip to the new class: Keep
on the ball and fire better than your
neighbor. We've got to eliminate
a certain percentage for ground
range and for air to air firing, but
if you do your best, you will make
the grade.
We need good gunners who can
shoot straight, and every opportun-
ity will be given would-be gunners
to demonstrate their abilities. The
safety of nine men, not to mention
the gunner himself, depends on his
straight shooting. Don't be discour-
aged if you have never shot a gun
before. Some of our greenest men,
with a little training and practice,
nave developed into accurate and
steady shooters
We'd like to devote this column,

awaited him, transferring him from
this station to a point where Lt.
Howard will further his technical
training. We wish him the best of
luck and success.

ferent style coiffure every morning
with very few repeats in styling. We
like the idea.
By dint of careful financing, we
have procured some new furniture
for our day room. A couple of set-
tees and lamps, installed this week,
certainly added to the attractiveness
of the D. R. Now, we are "buckin"

Teams to Meet Again
At Gateway City
Next Week-end

The men of Tyndall Field cannot dig deep enough into the
young history of the Tornadoes, who are now completing their
second season, to find anything to compare with the thorough
drubbing the T/F ball club received, last weekend at the hands
of the Jacksonville Coast Guard nine. The C.G.s coasted their
way through to a double win by scores of 9-1 and 6-1.
The only fact that could possibly lighten the burden of de-
feat for the Tornadoes was that they were beaten by the best

team that they had faced this,
season. It became apparent
early in Saturday's game that the
Coast Guardsmen had not won the
Jacksonville city championship
through mere chance. A close
observation of individual players
on the Jacksonville roster re-
vealed little or no weaknesses
at any position.
In the opener on Saturday,
Flanagan started on the mound for
the Tornadoes, but was relieved
in the second by Donoway after
the Jax men scored 5 runs on 3
hits. Donoway finished the game,
allowing "4 more counters on four
hits. Accounting for the excess-
ive scoring on 8 hits was the
poor field work by the Tornadoes.
A total of six errors were com-
mitted by the makeshift T/F line-
up which boasted but five regular
Tyndall's lone run was scored
in the second inning when Didier,
first man up, singled and came
home on Burroughs' double. Burr-
oughs was pinch-hitting for Flan-
agan-and switched places with
Donoway in left field as Al came
in to pitch.
On Sunday, the Tornadoes took
the lead in the third inning when
two walks and a fielder's choice
play permitted Tarr to cross the
plate. However, the Coast Guards-
men tied things up in the fourth,
when Leftflelder Dunance, connec-
ted for his second of four hits
and scored on a fly-out and an
The visitors took the lead in
the fifth with another tally and
added to it in the sixth to bring
the score to a 3-1 count. The
tars then put the game on ice in
the eighth when they crossed the
plate three more times on a free
pass and three hits.
Nick Orange, of the Medics,
pitched the entire game for the
Tornadoes, giving up 9 hits.
According to a report from the
Post Athletic Officer, a return
twin bill has been scheduled with
the Jax baseballers for next week-
end. Tomorrow, the Tornadoes are
slated to meet-the strong Medics'
nine in a practice session.
Meanwhile, the T/F team will be
looking for revenge against Jack-
sonville and it is quite possible
that the return of Southard and
Brown from leaves will enable the

Tornadoes to turn the tide. But
they will definitely have to be
at their best if they are to have
any chance against the sparkling
field play of the Jax men, par-
ticularly in the shortstop area
where Witkowski performs with the
perfection and grace of a Joe

groups, air depot groups and
the related training activi-

from responsible positions with

further aid the War Bond campaign
this month with inauguration of a
bond raffle at the Officers' Club
dance each month beginning next

will be affixed to bills and those
not desiring to take part may
cross out the charge and reduce
their bill by that amount before
It will not be necessary for
the officer winning the bond to
be present at the time of the
drawing and in the event he is
transferred it will be sent to
a place he may designate.
The amount of bonds to be award-
ed will depend solely on the a-
mount of ftids raised through the
sale of tickets.
Under plans of the raffle it is
possible for one contestant to
win each month. In other words
it will be possible for an officer
to win a $25 bond this month and
win a $25, $50 or $100 bond next
month. However, the winner of a
$100 bond will not be able. td

raffle is not compulsory.
