Drew Officer Won

Silver Star in The

War in the Pacific

At the age of 26 Captain Edwir
B. Gilmore, now stationed a
Drew Field, is a seasoned veteran
eo 'he war in the Pacific. He was
S ved in the campaigns in the
fippines, in Bataan, in Aus
tralia, in Borneo and in Java.
Modest and unassuming, the
young vaiator tries to minimize
his own role in the historic bat
Sties in the Pacific. The intangibh
yet potent factor of courage, how
ever, appeared in his single.
.handed conflict with nine Jai
fighters over Java, to win fo]
Shim the silver star for gallantry
:in action.
Oapt. Gilmore, a native of Roya:
Oak, Michigan, joined the Army
Air Forces in May, 1940, and
after completing an aviation fly-
ing course was sent to Nicholi
Field in the Philippines, where
he was stationed from February
1941, until may of the same year
Then he was transferred to Clarl
Field, also in the Philippines.
At Pearl Harbor
He had been stationed at Clark
Field for six months when the air
base was-attacked by a flight of
JaD bombers.
The day that Pearl Harbor was
bombed, a chart in the Operations
office showed the Nipponese
heading toward the field. They
readied a -squadron of P-40s to
meet the- incoming bombers and
the pilots were seated in their
cockpits when they heard over
the,radio that Pearl Harbor had
been bombed.
Capt. Gilmore was warming up
his engines when he saw Major
Joseph M. Moore (then a lieuten-
ant) running around the field and
pointing at the sky. Major Moore
is now stationed at Drew Field as
adjutant of the same group with
which the captain is connected.
Attacked By Japs
Capt. Gilmore looked up at the
sky and saw 55 Jap planes zoom-
ing overhead. "We tried to take
off," he said, "but bombs were
falling all over the field. Two
of our pilots were killed. Three
of us managed to take off and
we climbed to 20,000 feet. I saw
Lt. Moore's wings wobbling as a
warning signal. I looked to'my
right and saw 15 Zefos coming
toward me. I didn't know at that
time whether or not they were
Zeros. I could see they had red
circles on them. I pulled up and
went over the top of them, then
went into a dive. They followed
me. Lt. Moore and another lieu-
tenant shot down four of them.
Another chased me and I went
into a steep dive. When I pulled
out, I saw him pass below and
his wings fall off."
S xe captain ducked for a cloud.

there after, the Japs got through

Action at Manila
He rejoined his squadron at
'C-lark Field and stayed their until
December 24, 1941, when he was
instructed, together with nine
other men, to report to headquar-
ters, in Manila. They started out
for Bataan .on Christmas Eve by
an inter-island boat loaded with
supplies. -The bay was full of
mines and the boat pilot didn't
know exactly where they were.
One boat had been blown up only
a week before. When they landed
at Mariveles, the boat was un-
loaded. Fifteen minutes later,
Nipponese bombers came over
and blew the boat right out of
the "water.
On December 31, 194,1, he and
seven other pilots crowded into
a five-passenger plane and were
flown to Australia after some hec-
tic' experiences in Tarakan, Bor-

derstanding and closer coopera-
tion between people of different

S. J., Rabbi Julian Feibelman,

tioned at Drew Field.
Father Curren, who is head of
the Department of Religion at
Loyola University of the South,
soldiered in the last war. He was

tians and Jews.

It was also over Java that Capt.
Gilmore tackled the nine Jap
bombers single-handedly and
shot down one of the thiee Jap
planes he is credited with offi-
cially. In recognition of his coura-
geous venture, he was awarded
the silver star. For being wound-
ed in action on the day he was
shot down he was decorated with
the purple heart. Although his
leg was burned badly, he was
back in the air a day later.
By the first of March, 1942, they
returned to Australia. At Bris-
bane he functioned as a test pilot.
He and six other pilots tested all
planes coming to Aqstralia for
erection. They tested aircraft by
ferrying them over uncharted
areas in Australia. They ferried
hundreds of planes and never
had an accident.
He returned to the states on
December 20, 1943, and came to
Drew Field January 7, 1943. Here
he is instructing young pilots in

The victory over Sarasota in-

umn to 11 against two defeats for
the season.
Playing cautiously during the
first half, Drew led 20-11 at the
half-time period. Drew was out
in front 9-4 at the end of the first
period and 34-23 at the close of
the third quarter.
Ed Sitarz, high scorer of the
night for the Interceptors with
12 points, turned in a beautiful
game both on defense and offense
in leading his teammates to vic-
tory. Close on his heels was John
Fowler (high scorer in the Tampa
City league) with 11 points.
Fowler played a bang-up game
on defense in holding the high
scoring Flack of Sarasota to seven
