Credited aaterial aay not be republished prior pera1ss1on frna CNS A LETTER FROM NORTH AFRICA What follows, is a l .etter written by Wac Pvt. Florence A. Terry, 182 WAC Hq. Platoon, Fifth Army,_at present stationed in North Africa, to the members of the Al truss Club of Houston, Texas, an orAanization of women enAaAed in doinA Community and War Work. While the letter is not remarkable in any detail, it does however, take us behind the scenes of WAC life in North Africa, insofar as censorship permits. Pvt. Terry's simply written account of her debarkation at an unnamed harbor in Africa and what followed next, be comes important to all of us, who at times are apt to view the war with the polite, detached air of a casual observer, For the habitual Ariper and those inclined to takinA a short view of our responsibility to our comrades in arms across seas--the letter holds more than moral. Dear All: We were all packed-with our packs on our backs ready to leave the P. o.E. when I received a letter. from l1lY sis, Elizabeth, in which she wondered just how I would reel as I left the good old u.S.A. tlle figured it would be a mixture or excitement and a little dread-well, so did I, but as we were leaving the shores, we all tried to rlgure out just how we felt. Several thought they would cry, but 1t seems that we have been moved around so many times and have had no idea what t he next stop held for us, that it just seemed natural to be go ing again 1n to the unknown and 1n to new quarters. our trip an the boa t was very.pleasant ror us, QUite luxurious compared with the way we h ave been living. or course we w ere crowded-we had 12 in our room which is intended for two people, but we man aged nicely. As there w ere not enough Wacs to set up a separate section, mess room, etc., we ate last at the officers mess, and had go o d food and also had the use of their lounge ror playing cards, etc. It was really exciting to view the harbor of our landing place in Africa just before sunset, and OH how I wish that I might be able to tell you W1ere it was and a description of the place. We debarked at night an d r e ached our new horne, a row or twelve tents lighted by o ne candle each, but it was all right--the good old United States Flag was waving over us. Y o u should have heard the shrieks or laughter t hat came when we first viewed our first all G. I. latrine built exa tly according to Army sanitation, which seemed prettY primitive to us -at first, but arter view.tng the sanitary conditions of this c0 onr.ry, w e h ave decided i t was pretty good after all. The n ex t m orning as W?. urted t h e side or our tent, to our surprise t.here w e r e two camels grazing in t he field in back or us. After breakrast we w e n t to the fence to watch the natives, Arabs mostly, and t he poorer French, going to market. rr 1t hadn't been for the awrul odo r whic h greeted us, ( that made t h e scene very uncomfortably real) w e might h ave though t ourselves in a movie. The slow moving camels lade n with wares ror t h e market--dirty, uncared f o r smelly camels wi h all t he glamou r o r t h e c i reus well cared ror cam g one. STUDY IN AMERICAN STRENGTH A chaplain, a Priest and a rabbi: Protestant--Catholic--Jew, Three Yanks in three simple caskets, Three colors, red, and blue; A hush on a tropic island As notes from a bugle. fall, Three rituals slowly chanting-Three faiths in a common call! A lad from the Bronx; another Who joined up in Tennessee: A third one from far A typical bunch, those three! A crash in a naval airplane, A rush to its crumpled side, And nearby Old Glory marking The reason the trio died. They answered a call to duty From church and from synagogue, From hillside and teeming city, Three names in a naval log! Each raised in his separate concePts. Each having his form ,to pray; But all for a faith triumphant When rituals fade away! A Prayer in Latin Phrases, And one with more ancient lore; A Protestant simple service--All one on a distant shore! "Qui toll is peccata mundi" And "Enter ye unto res't," A blessing from ancient Hoses For three who had met the test! This is the story mighty, Making our sinews strong; Boys from the many altars Warring on one great wrong!

Delbyck TARGET MY FAVORITE PHOTO X-SIREN-SOUNDING SGT. NOW TOOTS OWN HORN Quietly, but firmly, Tyndall Field was taken in hand by Sgt. Ray Barrette early in August of 19tl2. In slipping into the drivers seat, Ray was acting unofficially--but seldom, i ever, has anything become more official. From hi"s position as chauffeur to the field1s ranking c.;olonels and majors, Barrette has acquired power and knowledge which makes men seek him out for advice and confidential information before taking any important step. Naturally, he has become one of most wei 1-known enlisted men on the post--and to his credit we add that he has proven to be a capable major-domo. The picture above, --Barrette's entry in the favorite photo derby, gives a hint as to previous experience which has helped nim to prepare for his present all-important position on Tyndall The picture was taken In 1935, when was a sergeant in the Massachusetts State Pol ice Force. After two years with the state pollee, Ray switched back to mufti as a chauffeur and bodyguard for a member of the Massachusetts state supreme court. Three years of this work was enough t'o .Supply him with an adequate legal background, and he again made a change in occupation. This time, in order to keep in touch with the masses, Ray went to work for the Eastern Mass. Street Railway Company and in no time at all became its leading driver. However, in May of 19tl2, Uncle Sam decided that Ray was ripe for the Army, and he bid farewell to his of friends in the north to become New England's unofficial ambassador to the South I and ... in an AAF uniform. Arriving at Tyndall on June 15, 191l2, via the Miami Beach training center, Ray lost little time "getting around." Classification to have assigned him elsewhere'than to hIS present position would have been a gross miscarriage of ice--and in this case, justice triumphed. A smooth talker, and if the occasion requires it, a fast talker, Barrette has no compunction when it comes to rank he' 11 talk to anyone regard! ess of brass. Of course, there have been when his basic democratic instincts were subjugated, and his co-worker, Sgt. Harry Mabel, was to comment that upon one occasion Barrette was seen talk1ng to a second 1 ieutenant --but ever since the Target printed Mab7l's statement with the notation that said statement was an obvious 1 ie, Barrette is leaning over backwards to talk to sergeants.

THE TYNDALL TARGET THE GUNNER W' IS THE MAN! Malfunction Range For Marauder's Crew Training On Saves Day Anyone who has the idea that the gunners in a bomber aren't just as vital to the success or the mission as the pilots, bombardier, and navigator will change his mind when he reads a story written by Starr Sgt. Robert Butler now serving with a B-26 group in the -!! Mediterranean theater. Incidentally, the story also proves how the training on the mal-function range in the flexible gunnery schools pays orr in combat. Th e tan gunner hero or this tale" cleared his jammed guns just in time to get his crew out or a real jam. "Ring Sight seat prints the story verbatim as follows: FORMER TYNDALL GUNNERS ARE CREW MEMBERS OF FAMED FLYING FORT one Marauder tall gunner had a runny experience with some ME-109's over an airfield in western Sic1ly the other day. That is, runny after it was all over. For awhile it was no laughing matter. His bomber was hit and hit hard by flak over the target. All the skin was gone orr the top or the left wing and two grapefruit-sized holes in the wing tanks splashed gasoline all over the place. LOSing speed and altitude, the plane headed !or the deck_and home. "Down there just above the Mediterranean white caps, they joined a Marauder !ormation that was escorting a cripple home. ME-109's smell a damaged bomber like a shark scents blood, and they were hanging around all over the SkY. As they came in range the tall gunner squeezed the tr1 gger on his twin-501 s. Two bursts and they both jammed tighter than a Spitfire turn. "The turret gtinner kept away !rom his glass house. BUt it :wasn't enough. The ME's got down on the deck and made pass after S /Sgts.

In the ensuing struggle, three members of the crew were wounrled, but the ship retumecl safely to its home base --with two engines gone, a shredded anrl .1 amned rud der, every propellor hit, every engine chipperl and "holey as a calendar."

I THE TYNDALL TARGET FROM THE SATURDAY EVENING POST WHAT I AM FIG .HTING FOR By SGT. HERBERT E. SMITH I AM a Regular, a veteran of almost a qua:rter century of service, including combat action in France and Siberia in the first World War. I am an old-timer and my wife and young son and young daughter are "Army people. But I remember the little town over in New Jersey where I grew up, went to school and first affiliated myself with a church congregation. There were four churches, including one Roman Catholic church and a Jewish synagogue, in that small town. Growing up to young manhood in my home town, I numbered among my friends boys and girls from all those congregations. We didn't ask or care what faith a fellow had. Tim Clancy had the fastestbreaking curve, so he was the first-string pitcher on our sandlot baseball nine. Hymie Greenspan was our catcher. He owned the only mitt, but he could nip a base stealer. That's just one thing I'm fighting for-the continuance of my American, God-given .privilege of choosing my own friends, and not having to be worked up into a regimented hatred of any one class, race or creed. I want to leave that heritage, which the Axis would deny, to my son and to my daughter. I am fighting for the continuing privilege of going to the polls on election day and by a 'clean, secret, honest ballot exercising my American franchise of voting for whomever and whatever I please. I want to leave that heritage to my children too. I enjoy reading a good book and seeing a movie now and then. But I don't want anyone telling me what I must read or see, or denying me the right to pass my o'W'n judgment upon anything written or exhibited. I like a peaceful, quiet day in the country, a picnic trip with my family. On such a time or on Sgt. E. Smith. any occasion, I do not want to have to jump and, with my wife and children, out my ar:n in a stiff salute and "Heil !"anybody or anything. As an American soldier, I give the military to my commissioned officers, but I am definitely not saluting them as individuals or as members of some master race. I am saluting the uniform they wear, and the flag that uniform represents and gallant dead who gave their all to preserve for all everything that that flag stands for. And every salute I render is returned by my Army officers in that same spirit, for we in the United States Arniy salute not man, but tradition-American tradition dating from 1776. I am fighting for the right to root for Dartmouth over Cornell, for the Brooklyn Dodgers-yes, for the right to boo "my" team sometimes or to yell "Blind robber!" at referee or umpire; to write a letter to the editor if I don't like the way the city garbage collector rattles cans in the early morning; to growl about income taxes; to demand that the congressman for whom I voted-or, for that mat ter, did not vote-vote for or against a certain legislative bill; to listen to my radio or shut it off, as I alone see fit-in short, to enjoy to the full all the rights and privileges which belong to me and mine as a free man, and to permit my countrymen to enjoy those privileges of the long-established American w.ay of life too. It's worth fighting and, if need be, dying for. About the Author AN OLD-LINE Army sergeant is traditionally the .t\. most of men, and the last person in the world to wax eloquent on a subject like What I Am Fighting For. But an old-line Army sergeant is just what the author of this essay happens to be. During the past twenty-five years Master Sgt. Herbert E. Smith has soldiered all over the globe-in England, France, Germany, Siberia, the Philippines, China, Hawaii and the Panama Canal Zone, as well as in various posts in the United States. He grew up in Weehawken, New Jersey, in what he calls just an ordinary, middle-income family. "My father; George E. Smith," he continues, "had a trucking business in New York, and my mother, Sarah Evans Smith, was-well, just mom." After grammar and high school, he enlisted in 1918 for service in France, where he saw "some minor action" at St. Mihiel and the Me useArgonne. Later he marched into Germa:ny as a member of the American Army of Occupation. Upon his return to the United State s in the summer of 1919, he re-enlisted, and has b22n in the Army ever since. He says he loves the service, and can't imagine what he'd do as a civilian. At present, Sergeant Smith is a member of the editorial department of the recruiting publicity bureau at Governors Island in New York Harbor.

An Open Letter To The Men Of Tyndall Field: We went to the Post Recreation Hall dance last 'Ihursday night and we were thoroughly disgusted. We went to the USO dance on Tuesday and we went to the party at the usa on Monday, and we were not only disgusted but we were damned sore, as well. What's the matter, men or Tyndall Field? Don't you recognize a good thing when you see it or hear it? Three nights within a week. we attended a GI dance, put onespecially for us, the men at Tyndall Field, and what happened? You fellows don't even applaud when YOUR band plays! \omen we were civilians, we used to go to dances a lot two three times a week.. We always applauded a band after a selection, whether we liked it or not. It was the polite thing to do. Now, you say, it's different. The heck it 1s. Those bOys in the band work three and four nights a week to play for us, and you won't even applaud them when they play. Don't you want them to play? Capt. Freeman is plenty sore; Lt. Moore is plenty sore; Mr. Missal is plenty sore. And you can't blame them. The boys in the bandwell, they actually dread playing at any GI func tion. Why? Because 'it s all work. and no thanks. As one band member puts it, "What's the sense in playing? The boys don't appreciate it. Look. at them not one person appl8llded the last number we played. You can t play for a crowd like that. We know how 1t is. Maybe you DO appreciate the band, but just don't stop to think. about it. The band is GOOD. No question about that. Let's PROVE that we app:-eclate them that we KNOW they're good Remember, half a musi cians pay, I t.1 s said, i s the applause n e gets. so what do you say, fellows?
