MEMO FROM THE T/F HOSPITAL TO THE ENLISTED MEN OF TYNDALL FIELD: Dear aang, Just 24 months ago Christmas day, Tyndall Field was formally "occupied" by the men who had been temporarily stationed at B@3COP Beach. Possibly half a hundred out of that originAl of GI' s are still here at Tyndall.

He is averaging 10 points a game and only playing part or the run game We are waiting ror the Post Gym to open and to see some home g!llles there to watch old Silverking ln action. The sweating time is on again and the past week with all the rumors floating around a couple or the boys didn't know whether they were coming or going. Seems it got around that fUrloughs were frozen and when you wait ror one the way the 1stjSgt. and SJSgt. Marx have been to have that told t o you is the very last straw. Seems that only those in the instructor's squadron were frozen so Marx and Thompson are plenty relieved. They are going up to New York town and we wonder if there will be "those wedding bells ror that old gang or ours? Bombardiers to the rescue again! With bare hands and G.I. shoes these brave boys put oat the roaring rlamesor a !ire which threatened to spread throusn the entire tower range. Incidentally, these were the same boys who saved the State or Georgia last month, Class 44-5 was host to the graduating class or 44-2 at lts stag partY on the 11th. This is the first time that the lower class has been given the oppor tunity to be present at a graduation stag party, but this policy will be followed hereafter. What's this rumor that thP. low, er class is having special meetings at night to pray ror cold or stormy weather so they wont have to take PT? can it be that they don t like our obstacle course? We (44-5) had intended to dedicate it to them with our w1 shes upon our graduation. It seems almost as though Class 44-5 has taken up pilot training on the side. At least the way sched1?-les, etc., are changing has put us into a series or dizzy spins. .Weve b een in a daze ror days and days.

I n t h e f i r s t Wo r I d W a r 2 0 m i I I i o n men, .women and children died. Cities fell in ruins, nations were decimated and empires crashed. But Berlin stood unscathed and Kaiser Wilhelm died in bed. Even as he passed, a second German madman was plotting another world war in Be r I in. From that city went the goose-stepping legions who destroyed Rotte rdam in three hoursand Warsaw in a week. They snuffed out the I ights of Prague, Brussels, Belgrade and Athens; they pounded London and Stalingrad mere-i lessly. Cheered by four mi II ion residents of Berlin, Hitler boasted that the swastika on his chancel lory would glow for a thousand years and that not one stone would be chipped from the Brandenburger Gate. What do you say to that, Men of the A rm y A i r F o r c e s ? Shall sentimental fools preserve Berlin this time? The Rus-sians and the RAF wi II have something to say about that--and so wi II you. But do not forget that other city--Tokio. There a bespectacled monkey-god I ives in his sacred palace. In Tokio, the Ginza is bright with stolen goods and the Yoshiwara is crowded with girls sotd for a sack of rice. In Tokio, the proud architects of a new culture met to plot the infamy of Pearl Harbor. From Tokio they sail i ed forth to I ay a hun-dred Chinese cities in ashes; to rape and pillage Singapore, Surabaya and Man i I a. And the people of Tokio shouted. "Banzai Nippon!" which means a thousand years of I ife to Japan. A thousand years for Tokio? The clock ticks. The sand trickles. The bragging toasts are proposed and drunk. Berlin stands. Tokio stands. And so did Sodom and so did Gomorrah. But on a wall the flaming letters read: mene, tekel, upharsinl" Germans and Japanese, it wi II not be a thousand years. You are going to get it sooner than that. Tokio and Berlin are going to get such puni.shment that the next leader who cries "War! War!" in those towns wi II be stoned by a mob and choke of his own blood. Furnished by S!Jeciol Service for uo:;e on Orientation Bulletin Boord<:;

'On the French coast the light gleams and is gone,' wrote the,19th century English essayist and critic more than 60 years ago. For several weeks now, lights along the French coast have been carefully dimmed by the Nazis in expecta tion of continuing air attacks, and ev_acuation of some channel districts already has been order ed.
