I Vol. I No. 16 Army Air Forces Gunnery May 9, POeTRY COO TES T WOn BY P.F.C. WILLIS Captain Ammon McClellan, Tyndall's new Public Relations Officer, former Florida Housing Co-ordinator, and Area Manager of the Bureau of Cen sus for North Carolina in 1940. He has been an outstanding figure in Florida public housing. A eA. 90CISTY QeGrnS ACTIVITI The Army Emergency R elief Society in this vicinity has already started its first great m oney raising project. The local chapter, headed by a committee of prominent citizens of Panama City, has held its initial rehearsal for those men who volunteered their talent for the gala Minstrel Show to be presented in the Ritz Theatre on Wednesday evening, May 27th. Tickets for the blackface musical show are priced at $1, with all receipts going to the A E R Fund. Meanwhile, contributions by the men on the Field have begun to reach Col. Hyndman's office. There is at least one very proud mother in Pensacola, Florida, today, for last evening, Mrs. J.S. Willis received the following telegram from Colonel Warren A Maxwell: WISH TO ADVISE YOU THAT YOUR SON, PRIVATE FIRST CLASS JA.i.\fES WILLIS, HAS BEEN AWARDED FIRST P L ACE IN TYNDALL F'IELD Is f:lOTHER Is DAY POE'l'RY CONTEST. IN RECOGNITION O F THIS HONOR HE IS BEING GIVEN A FREE CALL TO YOU AT 10:15 A.M. SUNDAY, MAY lOTH. M Y S TO YOU, AN A M ERI C A N MOTHER, 7'EIOSE SON FOUND TIM E BETIYEEN DUTY HOURS TO EXPRESS SUCH WOHTH Y THOUGHTS OF DEVOTION A N D R EV Pfc. Willis, Tyndall's newly crowned Poet Laureate", left no doubt in the minds of the Contest officials as to whether or not he merited t he First Prize, a free telephone call home. This Hq. & Hq. Squadron soldier, who is a clerk in the Post File Room, submitted not one, but six, meritable Mother's Day verses. Three of these verses appear on the following page. Director Thomas Oliver of the local lJSO Club has already completed arrangements for the telephone call and also the recorded rnessaiGes that will be made by the two Tyndall men that tied for second place in the contest. The Second Place winners were Pfc. .Abraham Kinberg of the Quartermaster Detachmen t and Pfc. Michael Kurec of Lt. Eugene Englebrecht's Squadron. Oddly enough, all three winners are priva tes first class.


No word could do you justice, tell what you'v e been t h rough, I know no words of reverence that are worthy eno ug h for G od grant this prayer and I'll need not make Help me to be what I want to be-"A glowing to you. a nother: tribute M OTHER." With a kind and gentle touch she smoothed my tousled hair And brushed away the teardrops that childish woe left there. She taught us to laugh and forsake the tea -rs --to be kind to one another. So let me pause today and reverently p ray "Thank God ___________ r_o_r _my_ dear MOTHER. The fust time I remember Maw, was 'way, 'way back there when-I used to keep my trousers up with one big safety pin. Fum then on we been buddies, through t .hick and through the thin, I guess that Maws are the beft thing tM.t could happen to us men. (The above are three of six poem s submi t ted by the FIRST PRIZE WINNER, Pfc. JAMES WILLIS.) There's no other than my M other, She s quite beyond compare, She's simple, sweet, and loving She's someone I wouldn't share, She's my and no other could ever take her place. How I long to once again be near her, --to kiss her lovely .fuce. (The above poem was submitted by Pfc. A. Kinberg of the Quartermaster Det. Award: Second Place Tie.) k on this Mother's Day, I'll send my Ma a card, a nd this is what I'll say: "We'll win ou r fight--for our cause is true, And when my job i s done, I'll come b'ck to you. (The above po e m was submitted by Pfa. Michael M. Kurec of Lt. Engelbrechtts outfit. Award: Second Place Tie.)


TECHNICAL LEE With Technical Sergeant Georg e Lee, n o w acting first sergeant of Det. 907 Q M Co., the Army is very decidedly a family institution since six members o f his immediate family are now in the s ervice, leaving only one brother who is expected to be inducted soon. T h e Sergeant grew up at Ft. Sill, Oklah o ma, where his father is stationed. He has three sisters who are married to Army men, and has a brother in the Q. I!. C. at Abilene, Texas. At o n e time all members o f the fami l y except one brother-in-law in the Coast Artillery were stationed at Ft. S i ll. Now they are scattered out the states of Texas, Illinois, F l orida, C alifornia, and Oklah oma. Se r geant Lee enlisted in 19 35 at Ft. Sill, where he remained during his first enlistment. He then left the Ar:ny for one year but reenlisted at Barksdale Field in 1939. He was stationed there until transferred to Tyn dall Field as one of the first group o f approximately fifty m en sent here last September. He was promoted to staff sergeant on Feb. 8, 1942,and to technica l sergeant on April 1, 1942 Sgt. Lee has served in many phases of Quartermaster work; a nd the efficiency and personal qualities he dem on strated in these activities earned for him his rapid promotion and his responsible position as one of the most valuable men in his organization CAPTAI N HOWELL Commonly known as the "Goodwill Ambassador o f the Army", Captain Thomas A. ,Howell, Post Adjutant here, is a very h i ghly regarded a nd widely liked figure on the Field. Knovm to his intimates simply a s "Tom" Howell, the Adjutant has a large number of friends, not only among Army personnel but also among the civilian population of this community. It is the mission of the Adjutant to see that the orders and wishes of the Commanding Officer are carried out, and that a&ninistrative details are properly handled. This is a big assignment; but thr o u ghout all the perplexities of his position the Captain will rarely be f o un d without his characteristically go od disposition. Although naturally a jovial and funloving personality, the Adjutant can get tough w hen the interests of the Army demand it. Captain H owell is a native of Marion, Ala., and was educated at Marion Institute and at Presbyterian College, Clinton, S. C. He was called to active duty with the Air Corps on August 15, 1940, at Maxwell Field, Ala., and was immediately placed on special duty at Eglin Field Fla., where he was at first Acting Quartermaster and Supply Officer and later Post Adjutant. H e came to Tyndall Field on May 15, 1941. The Captain's favorite pastimes are fishing and golfing.
