Vol. I No. 15 Air Corps Gunner y School, Tyndall Field, Florida May 2, 1942 TYNDALL POET TO CAll HOME Colonel William W Welsh, C hief of Staff, who visited Tyndall last Saturday to inspect the operation of the gunnery ranges. $ENATOR 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 i nvited to be the speaker on Tyndall's second t'Thirst for Knowledge" program. The show will be broadcast over VIDLP from the USO Building on Monday night at '7:30 P M Major Shipman, the sponsor, that Senator P ep per has been asked to speak in connection with the program's policy to present outstanding state and national figures on the topic of "The Purchase of War Sav ings Bonds and S t amps." Private Jerry Flacks will be the program's quiz master. The Secretary of has stressed his desire that each man in the Army send a letter home on l'iiother Is Day, Uay lOth, as an expression of l ove and reverence. In keeping with this desire, 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 tryinp; to rhyme 11 June'' with M oon" can now try your hand with ''Sister and Brother" and "Father and Mother." The contest closes on Thursday, May 7th at 5:00 P .rli'. That gives you five days to think up your four-line verse and h and it in on a slip of paper with your name, rank, and ore;anization, to Post Headquarters in care o f the "TARGET". The local USO organization w ill not only present the winni ng contesta-nt with a telephone call to his mother at any point in the continental u s. but will e :lso award the writer of the second best verse an opportunity to per sonally record his messag e o n a phono graph record to be sent to the folks back home. All entries will be judEed b y the combined staffs of the u;;;o organization and the "TARGET." The decision of the jude;es will be final and the winner will be announced in next Saturday's "TARGET."


, LEST W E FORGET. Mother's Day is Sunday, May 10, 1942. What kind of a mother is your mother'! I s 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 y o u may thinkyou need? When you are sick, does she refuse to "put herself outn, to nurse you? Does she refuse to stay awruce when you need her? Does she always think of herself and not of others? Or, does she always refuse to think of herse lf, her own comfort, her own health, and instead think of you? M y Mother always thinks of her children first and herself last. I wonder if your mother is not like that, too. Mother is a wonderfu l creature. No one can adequately describe her. N o one can ever adequately repay her. The best we can do for her is to make of ourself e a man that S H E can be proud of. Mother looks for a letter, on Mother 1 s Day. Are you going to let her There is hardly anything Tyndall Field cou l d be more proud of than to know that every soldier and officer o f Tyndall Field has written to Mother. LEST \l'fE FORGET. M other's Day is Sunday, May 1 0 1942. All pilots at Tyndall will be interested in knowing that the Field's first Link Trainers began operation yesterday. Althoug h the butt of numerous 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 y ou 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 become invaluable in the instruction of this type of flying which is extremel y complex and is much easier to assimilate on the ground, where mistakes and faults can easily be talked over, demonstrated and explained. Every Army Pilot is required to have a minimum of 4 hours in 6 months, or 10 hours during the year, of instrument flying. Tyndall's Link Trainers are under the supervision of Lt. C.F. Brunner, assisted by Sergeants Sheri dan, McGee, Reagan, and Pvt. Moye. --Herbert T. Wilson, Post Chap lain 1/5:(} 5Gfkdd4& Going "all out" towards providing social activities for the boys on the Field, Director Thomas Oliver of the Panama City USO, announces that beginning 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 afternoon feature. Dancing classes have been switched to M onday nights and all men i n terested are requested to leave their names at the USO building in advance. Mrs. Kay Goodman, an expert terpsichorean, is i n charg e of the instruction. Another new feature will be free Bingo games on Wednesday evenings with useful prizes being awarded to the winning contestants. Cameras are available for use without charge Also, due to the numerous requests by Tyndall's amateur-expert photographers, a complete darkroom will be constructed within the next few weeks. r


?Jc:6)nli Master Sergeant Postlewait As an aerial gunnery school, Tyndall Field's training program is vi tally dependen t upo n a smoothly and efficiently operating Armament Department. Fortunately, the air base. has such a de-partment. Directing the armament work down on the line are M/Sgt. Andrew B. Postlewait and M/Sgt. Harold :12:. Myers, both of whom are veteran armorers. Sgt. Postlewait enlisted in the Army in 192 5 and spent the following six years in the Infantry at Ft. Eustis, Va. Since 1 931 he has been in the Air Corps, stationed most of the time at Langley Field, va., as an armorer. H e took a c ourse at Chanute Field, Ill., in 1932, and in 1939 completed a master armorer's course at Lowr y Field, Colo. On Dec. 6, 1941, he came to Tynd all Field. A native ofValier, Pa., Sgt. Postle wait is known as one of the most reliable and conscientious workers on the Field. H e probably has held as great a variety of jobs as anyone on the Post, and in eac h one the Sergeant has left a record of g o od performance. He is a fast and industrious worker, and he keeps his crews operating systematically at all times. The creditable qualities demonstrated 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. Hajor Clarvoe The Commanding Officer of a military post the size of Tyndall Field has a position involving tremendous res pon sibi1itT, and the many burdensome duties of his office make necessary the delegation to assistants of many tasks which otherwise woulci fall upon his shoulders. This staff of assistants is headed by the Executive Officer, and at 'f,yn dall this position is filled by efficient Uajor 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 entered the U. S. College of Veterinar y Surgeons and upon his graduation became a veterinarian at Ft. O glethorpe, Ga. Following the war, he pursued his studies further a t the University of Maryland in 1919, and at Geor g e Wash ington University in 1922. In 1926, Major Clarvoe rec eive d his commission in the ll6th Field Artillery, Florida National Guard. H e came to Tyndall on Jan. 5, 1942, fro m Camp Blanding, Fla., where he was Executive Officer of the First Battalion, l l6th Field Artillery. The Major's home is in Tampa, Florida.

Rex Terrell, back as lst Sergeant, has the administration reins well in hand. W e have quite a crew of keglers in our o"utfit and not the. least expert of them is our c.o. He makes those pins salute as they g o down! As a tribute to their prowess, the bowling squad is often referred to as "Marchesi's Murderers. Good-luck to the boys w ho are leaving for clerical 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 yo u Although n o b ody has asked us, the men in the ou tfit want more parties i n the Recreation Bldg., more women and more punch. --ss 0 LT. WATSON ne morning week a heavy fog lifted and ther e on the steps of hat chE;lry 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.o. for that swell party en the beach the other afternoon. Gulf swirrnning is safe this season, all the "sharks" are gathered 'round the new pool table. The le.st two Saturdays have been noticeably quieter everybody acts so h omeloving .. it seems as tho fun and funds go hand in hand. And G B Grout is voted "S;ruadron Dawn Buster.'' --J'N T LT.

Sheppard. --HHB H ORDNANCE e r e's wishing all t hose 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 h.e gets his leave of absence. We are wondering why Barracks No. l is in such a state of continual confusion. Could it be that Private Earl Killingsworth and his mail-order flute are the reason? Our nomination for the best file clerk on the Post is Corporal Ira Nealis of the Post Ordnance Office. Y'ihen he files anything, it is really filed.-RS

McGee and Sheridan returned f rom Eglin Field where they've been supervising the Link Trainer Dep't. They will assist Gunner Earl Moyein running the department here. We hear that there is a soldier in the squadron who is engaged to 6 women and is trying to get into foreign service to get away from i t all. Cpl. B agwell, what are you "bucking" for turning in all those men Sunday nite? You're up for sergeant anyway, so let up for a while. Barracks 345 resembles a p rivate home--hardly more than on e man per room. What is lst Sgt. Hodges d oin g with 3 men in the orderly room? Is he having morning report trouble again? S/Sgt. YVilliams, this above all remember, don't get excited on your lst enlistmentl --TRW T SIGNAL box of real maple sugar that Cpl. Phelps brought back was a rare trea t to the men from New England. He is still single, and that, judging fran the number of men who have returned from furlough married, is quite an accomplishment. Maintenance minded Panasuk did a bit of maintaining on Sgt. Kolt's radio .. Results: The aforementioned radi o burned up. Panasuk swears the radio was working beautifully when he finished with it, but we have our own ideas as to the cause of the mishap. Angelletti is making a flower bed out by the barr acks, and it is easily discerned that his knowledg e of flowers was acquired in Manhattan. The poor things just don't respond to his treatment and obviously don't appreciate his gentle care and their new home. --WMI-I fT1 QUARTERMASTER boys sure are getting into shape with all this gas mask drill. The QH boys lost their game with the medicos, but with a little more practice-it to be a different story the next time we meet. Lt.

It's function is to place men in the A rmy 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 t o date and accompanies the soldier whereever 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 turned over to the government agency in charge of placing men in civil life, and these records will be an important factor in determining wha t sort of civilian job he is of holding The Classification Department at Tyndall Field is under the supervision of Lieutenant Martin II.. Tannen. His staff of enlisted men is headed by S/Sr;t. Arthur 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 smoot h and efficient operatio n of the various departments on the Post, dueto their interest and judgment in the placing o f departmental personnel.


Welcome news to Tyndall's pugilistic enthusiasts is the announcement that the Field's boxing ring is completed and fully e _quipped even to lighting fixtures for after-dark bouts. As mentioned in last week's sports paget all squadrons are urged to hold elimination competition within their groups to determine their representatives of the various weight classes. The winners of these contests will then compete in the inter-squadron competition which will get under way next week. Meanwhile, the use of the ring is available to anyone desiring i t Permission from the A & R Office is not necessary. SOFTBALL GAMES ON TAP TEAMS Lt. Joseph E. Adkins Monday Lt. H. T.

LEAGUE ROUND UP Don't look nowt but those Cleveland Indians are burning up the American League a gain. Under pilot Lou Boudreau, the "collapsing" Indians have built up a streak of ll consecutive 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 ThurEday when he almost single-handedly batted the Brooks to victory over the Reds by clouting out two homers and a single. Baseball far;ts will note that it wa' s 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 Tigers 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 consecutive wins at 16 straight...
