Drew Station Hospital Opened;
Most Modern Medical Facilities
In the Station Hospital at Drew
Field, which is now nearing com-
pletion, the Army medical de-
partment is utilizing all of its nu-
merous medical and surgical fa-
cilities to keep healthy the sol-
diers stationed there.
The fact that the American
Army is the healthiest in the
world is not the result of chance.
It is due to careful planning.
S "Sound mind in sound body" was
the Greek ideal during its golden
S.. age and that is the ideal of our
S' United States Army, too. When a
.'" soldier is in good health, he can
'i do his job better, he can think
More clearly, he is happier.
S< Best Health Record
.g The health of our Army is excep-
tional. Our new soldiers have a
Sl. better health record than any in
,our military history. On the aver-
age, they are far healthier than
.- the men at Valley Forge and har-
dier than the men at Gettysburg;
they are better protected from dis-
ease than the men in the Argonne.

The first patient in the new hospital was Pvt. William H. Fisher, of the 1917-18 recruits, the rates

Here is the story of G.I. chow
as told by NCC Service-grams.
Washington's men crossed the
Delaware on 24-hour rations of a
pint of milk, 16 ounces of beef,

quart of spruce beer.
In the war of 1812, regulations
stipulated that mess should be
prepared by squads of privates
and the G.I. Cook Book advised:
"Bread ought not to be burnt."
The Civil War introduced yeast
and pepper to the groceries but
you'd never recognize the chow
of that time as "balanced diet."
The Spanish-American War in-
troduced the K,P. potato-peeling,
and by World War I butter was
allowed on bread.

macaroni, and tea became part of
the regular issue in 1927.

,DREW FIELD -ECHOES
H~storyofDraw 1J ;-Fel~d Is
On1e o1 Very
In a sod-covered cow pasture,
o n ce spotted with palmetto
growth and pine trees, the United
States Army has built a new nest
for its war birds-Drew Field.
Paved streets have replaced
swampy marshland. Barracks and
hutments now stand where pal-
mettos and pines grew. From an
abandoned municipal airport has
emerged Drew field, a modern
Army air base and flying schdol,
built to train fliers and soldiers
for the War of Survival.
As it is today, as it will be in
the future, Drew field is a mir-
acle of Army building-symbol of
the transformation that has taken
place all through the nation as
the American people gird them-
selves for world war.
Named for John H. Drew, Tam-
pa contractor and real estate
operator who first bought the
land and turned the subdivision
into a private landing field, Drew
field was acquired by the City
,bf Tampa in 1928 for a municipal
airport. Little was done to dev-
elop the field, however, until the
government took over and made
plans for militarization of the
Then things happened. And
In December, 1940, Lt. Henry
M. Salley, engineers corps, was
ordered from MacDill field to
supervise the preparations of the
abandoned airport. Under his di-
rection, administration buildings
and barracks were built, and on
Jan. 16, 1941, Capt. James C.
Hardwick, Air Forces, and a de-
tachment of men from MacDill
field, were detailed to duty at
Colonel Melvin B. Asp (then Lt.
Colonel) wasassigned to Drew
field May 7, 1941 and designated
commanding officer of the field
which was still a sub-station of
MacDill. On June 12, 1941, the
Third Interceptor Command, Gen-
eral Frank commanding, arrived.
On July 12, the Thirteenth Trans-
port Squadron. Two days later,
Headquarters and Headquarters
Squadron, Third Interceptor Com-
mand, was activated.
The work of transforming Drew
field into a modern air base con-
tinued. On Aug. 18, ceremonies
celebrating the starting of work
on the runways took place. The
first pouring of concrete was at-
tended by Army officials, political
leaders and residents of St. Pe-
tersburg, Clearwater and Tampa.
From the first, the present and
the future of Drew field were
linked with St. Petersburg and
other cities of the bay area. As
the first buckets of concrete were
poured, Colonel Asp placed three
bricks-one each from St. Peters-
burg, Tampa and Clearwater-
into the fresh compound.
"These three cities are closely
tied in with Drew field in a social,
business and recreational man-
ner," he said. "Let us hope these
cities will continue to be bound
in the future as closely as these
three bricks will be bound in this
indestructible concrete that will
soon cover them.'
Sept. 15, 1941, Drew field was

BEECH AT-7 ADVANCED TRAINER
Shown here by the Aeronautical Chamber of Commerce of America is
the Beech AT-7 Army advanced trainer. It is a low-wing monoplane, the
wings tapering more on the leading than on the trailing edge, and with the
fuselage projecting slightly ahead of the Pratt 6 Whitney aircooled engines.
The latter are almost in line with the nose. The wings have a moderate
dihedral and the elevators are slightly shorter than the tailplane. The cross-
section of the fuselage appears roughly rectangular in shape.
OUR TROOPS live pretty
primitively in their scattered
camps. They're on American ra-

Drew Day Rooms
To Be Furnished
By Tampa People
The Tampa committee of camps
and hospitals of the American
Red Cross, through its chairman,
George Lenfestey, is lining up
residents of the Tampa area to
furnish day rooms for servicemen
at nearby bases like Drew Field.
Mr. Dan M. Hartley, Red Cross
field director at Drew Field, has
received a great many calls from
interested individuals and organ-
izations. Contributions of radios,
tables, pianos, chairs, recreation
equipment and other furnishings
are sought. All contributions be-
come the property of the army,
under the direct jurisdiction of
Capt. Chester K. Delano, special
services officer at Drew Field.
"Whike the day rooms are built
and furnished partly by the
army," Hartley said, "our com-
mittee expects to add to these
basic furnishings to make these
rooms like home to the men. To
do this, we need a tremendous
amount of equipment, more than
the average person would ima-
gine. That's why we need cooper-
ation of all the citizens and organ-
izations in the Tanipa bay area.
It's not just Drew Field we want
to equip, but all the army and
coast guard bases in this region.
"This project has been success-
fully completed by thousands of
committees throughout the na-
tion, and there's certainly no rea-
son why ours can't go over the

501st S.A.W. REGIMENT
By Sgl. Caesar J. Longo
Never discovered until now
thati. the 501st had so much talent
among its soldiers. It's true that
wcU:en soldiers are busy they find
little time to display their talents
to t.hir fellow soldiers as well
as "the civilians.
'While on the subject of talent
and artistry, we find that Acting
Sgt. Steve Hnida, of Det-P, has
sore than one talent. His spe-
ciai.ty is painting. In addition to
h;.s ability to paint, we find that
he can write short stories, can an-
li.unce on the air, can .sing, and
cat write poetry. We expect, in-
ci.entally, his entrance in the
For:t Benning Infaitry School
SPrivate Stanis is a fluent speak-
er of five languages. He is also
"basso profundo," and lover of
(Ccand Opera. He is a member of
tie Drew Field Chapel Choir.
Speaking of the Choir, Chaplain
ilMadden can use more singers. For
MIVdnight Mass Services, which
*will be held in the Service Club,
the Choir will broadcast Mass
(L'eonard's) over a local Tampa
Radio station. Sgt. Longo will
render two religious solos: Can-
Vique De Noel and Bizet's Agnus
D i. Sgt. Doxon of the 503rd is the
organist. Another member of the
Choir is Sgt. T. Frank Welsh, a
-tcor, formerly with the famous
Westminster Choir. He acts as
Chaplain Madden's assistant. To
join the Choir, all you need do
is to be present at either of the
I: x'ee rehearsals weekly Mon-
day, Wednesday or Friday eve-
nings at 7:30 sharp.
We also have S/Sgt. Joe Black

Sgt. Oswalt also returned from
furliough and reported, in Com-
x:znique form, the game between
Ca. Tech. and Alabama. "Ossie"
is from Alabama. Whom do you
think he was for?-You're right.
According to the personnel of
th:e Dispensary they have a very
frequent visitor. Hypochondriac-
tically speaking, the poor fellow
is very ill. At the suggestion of
"i\Mustache V (for victory) Serkin.
they administered the famous GB
Solution. He took it not more
thin twice. Wonder why? Wonder

Corp. Young, alias "Warden"
Young, a member of "Colini's"
KJtchen, displayed his ability as
a public speaker and comedian
at a party a few weeks ago.. In
fact, we think that the talent
mentioned in this. column should
appear on one of the Post's Radio
TPrograms. Don't worry, Youngy
old boy, you'll make Staff yet!
The party we spoke of was
given for Lt. Thayer, Mess Off.
of Kitchen No. 9 in anticipation
of his marriage which, inciden-
tally, took place on Dec. 5. Con-
gratulations from all of the 501st,

Good luck, DeMike!!! There is a
street in the city of brotherly love
named after Sgt. DeMichael. That
is a" good one for Ripley.
Tlr.ough some channels, we find
that Sgt. Colini is expecting an
extremely large package from
Pennsylvania. Wonder if his
