LANDING OF THE LIBERATORS T o an expectant and listening America, the radio on the morning of June 6 blurted the ep ochal news of an Allied troo p landing i n northern Franpe; The invasion had come at last. A tidal wave of excitement-then swept over the land washing it clean of rumors and speculations and all of that day the churches of the land kept filling with pe ople seeking through prayer an audience with their G:>ci. Once before in June had a force o f British and Canadian crossed the C hannel t o Dover. N o w in company with t h e American s they were g oing back t o keep a p r omised rendezvous.

J. . .>' WILL HITLER BE YOUR,COMPANiON . . .. TH.R0U(]H ETERNITY? '--.; .. : : , . / I l Isn't this a startling queS.tiimi . and a strange one to be asking' a soldie; of the Allied cause? Surely no member of Uncle Sam's army would wilfully c hoose to be Hitler's bedf.ellow _either in the hereafter.However, death makes changes. Be yond her shores lie only two abodes, and not hard to guess where Bitler and his kind will most likely be! I have no desire to plead mercy for him. The question is then, "Where will you. spend eternity?" The Pearly Gates will. not swing open for us merely because we have have been on the side of the Allies. If _we have been with the devil and his _crowd, if we are strangers to God and His_grace, if we know nothing of the forgiveness of sins through Jesus' blood, if we know n6thing of a holy walk, our sad lot in eternity will be in the companionship of the enemies of God. Of course, there Will be plenty there, but what a it Will be and what small consolation. God in his great goodness has decreed that nothing shall ever mar -the bliss or' the holy redeemed in heaven. In that place God himself shall wipe all tear s from their eyes. There shall be no more sorrow, suffering, sin or death and there shall be no night there, for the former things-shall have passed away. Neither shall the nations"!earn war any'"" more. In hell there shall be endless weeping and gnashing of teeth. The Hitlers and sins of earth have already caused me enough. I do not care to follow them beyond the grave. Yet the sorrows of that place will not be the Hitlers who may be there. They themselves will be weeping out their own remorse, shorn of all braggadocio. The sorroys the lost will be their own sinfulness, their own separation from all that is holy an good. There_ is only one way to _escape such a fate. Jesus said, "Except a man be born ag-ain he cannot enter the kingdom of God." America. has multitudes who are living for the world, the flesh and the devil; who are Christian in name only; wh0 have never been truly -converted. To such I say let this startling question be an eye opener to your own lost condition, your own sinfulness, your own God-dishonoring speech and in repentance and in forsaking of sin turn to Christ and him as your Saviour and Lord. "Let the wicked forsal?.e his way, ana the unrighteous man his thoughts: and him return unto the LORD, and he wiLL mercy upon him; and to our God, for he wiLL abundantly pardon." -..,Isa. 55:7 "Except ye repent, ye shanan Likewise perish." ---Luke 13:3 --CHAPLAIN A.

June 10, ,THE BEG'INS * Battle to Death and Victory The early editions of Tuesday morn ing's papers were full of news of the fall of Rome and the pursuit of the Nazi armies fleeing into northern Italy. King Vittorio Emanuele III resigned as king of Italy and handed the throne to his 39-year-old son, Crown Prince Umberto. President Roosevelt in a broadcast hailed the capture of the Eternal City. As he talked, the President knew that the invasion troops were setting out across the Channel in landing ships. General George c. Marshall, the United States Chief of Staff, was at the Rue embassy in Washington to receive a So viet decoration. Accepting the award, b.e said "the final a 'ction in this terrible European war is now focused on a single battle in which.every Allied force will be represented--a to the death for the Nazis and a battle to Victory for the Allies." General Marshall, too, knew that the invasion would begin minutes after his talk ended. The final battle began shortly before midnight, Tyndall Field time. The first news came from Germany in a broadcast by the Nazi news agency "ALLIED TROOPS HAVE BEGUN LANDING NEAR LE HAVRE IN THE BEGINNING OF IN VASION OPERATIONS. ALLIED PARACHUTE TROOPS HAVE DROPPED ON THE NORTHERN TIP OF THE NORMANDY PENINSULA. For more than three hours the air was filled with news of the invasion--all coming from Germany. Then, at 2:32 a.m., Allied Supreme Headquarters issued this Communique No. 1: "UNDER THE COMMAND OF GENERAL EISENHOWER, ALLIED NAVAL FORCES SUPPORTED BY STRONG AIR FORCES BEGAN LANDING ALLIED ARMIES THIS MORNING ON THE NORTHERN COAST OF FRANCE" * The Reports Come In That one-sentence communique was followed by news dispatches from the scene which revealed that: The invasion front extended for a hun dred miles along the coast of Normandyin the same general area where King Henry V of England landed the British archers who later overwhelmed the French in the famous battle of Agincourt. The immediate goals were the great French ports of Cherbourg and Le Havre, harbors which are needed desperately if the Allies are to pour the necessary tremendous amounts of men and materiel into France to meet the full strength of the German army. Parachute troops had landed 40 miles inland near Rouen and were battling Ger. man anti-invasion forces some 65 miles from Paris. The fortified cathedral town of Bayeux four miles inland in the center of the Normandy front was captured. Caen, where the first of the German -al'mored counter-attacks came, was hotly Week Ending June 9 T I H T R N D S ONE YEAR AGO THIS WEEK British bombers lashed the channel fortifications and installations of Germany's Atlantic Wall. TWO YEARS AGO THIS WEEK Japanese naval and military forces landed on the island of Kiska in the Aleutian group. THREE YEARS AGO THIS WEEK Th e B r i t i s h n a v a 1 base o f G i bra I tar was attacked by Ita! ian planes flying from Sardinia 800 miles to the east. FOUR YEARS AGO THIS WEEK The great battle of the Somme raged in France. The French armies were fall-ing back Jn retreat. FIVE YEARS AGO THIS WEEK AI I i ed world sits back and watches developments as Italians finish conquest of AI bani a. contested. Caen is 29 miles southwest of Le Havre. The Allied attack threatened to cut off the Cherbourg peninsula. Allied intelligence officers have identified, through questioning of Ger man prisoners and other means, 1o different Nazi divisions engaged so far. The Germans reportP-d t.hat the Allies had 20 divisions in The American First Division, which spearheaded the American landings in North Africa and in Sicily, and the British 50th Infantry Division, led the Allied s .eaborne landings. Canadian infantry and armor captured a dozen towns and 600 prisoners and ad vanced southward through the woodlands and farms between Caen and Bayeux. * The First Hurdle Was Easy The initial attacks met surprisingly little resistance. But it did not take long for the Germans to throw their re serves into counter-attacks, and the full force of the Nazi armies is ed to be hurled against the Allies with in a week. The German radio was constantly illing the air with reports and propaganda. Some of their reports were admitted to be true by the Allies. Others were unconfirmed. were hints that new landings were coming elsewhere. Allied broad casting stations warned the people of Norway, Denmark, Holland, Belgium and France not to fish in Coastal waters from 9 p.m. night until 9 p.m. next Thursday, lest they "hinder the operations of Allied forces." Fishermen at sea were warned to hasten back to port. The Germans at the same time declared that great concentrations cf shipping were in English ports, supposedly prepar.inif to start th'e movement across the channel. Air forces of the Allies flew more than 27,000 individual sorties in the first 54 hours, despite bad weather. In that time, 176 enemy aircraft were destroyed in air combat, and the Allies lost 289, including unarmed troop carriers and transports. Secretary o f War Stimso n warned against overconfidence. Only the first hurdle has been taken, he said. Germany's real strength is in the mobile armies concentrated inland, and the greater part of that strength will not strike until General Rommel has reached a decision on the power and main direction of the Allied attack .. * Disaster in Italy The forward drive past captured Rome was continuing at a lightning pace. American troops have advanced as much as 26 miles in 24 hours against only the slightest resistance. An Allied spokesman said the German 14th Army in Italy had been reduced to battered remnants. There was no indication o f where the enemy would attempt to halt the Allied steamroller. Valuable ports along the Italian coast have fallen into the hands of the Allies. Also captured was the former head quarters of Nazi Field Marshal Albert Kesseling, an elaborate, tunnelled underground stronghold. Allied spoke. smen said there was no chance that the German in would be able to send troops to reinforce the Nazi forces elsewhere. * On the Third Side The Germans announced that the Russians have started an offensive north of Iasi, which if true would mean that a triple-barrelled assault upon Germany was under way. The Russians said noth ing about the rumored offensive, but a dispatch from Mosc6w predicted that "Russian infantry soon will march across German land. * PACIFIC * The Jap Fleet May Fight Japanese warships were making their appearance in the southwest Pacific. A Jap heavy cruiser was attacked off north west New Guinea by American bombers on Wednesday. It was the third enemy com bat vessel reported jn that area this week. Previously, none had been en gaged for months. Presence of the vessels was taken as a possible indication that the Jap fleet may soon fight rather than yield more territory to the Ameri cans' advancing across the Paci.fic.

TYNDALL TARGET ONE MAN'S OPINION What's Yours 1 THE TIE THAT BINDS Dear Ed: very seldom, 1! e ver, do e s the Army issue an orde r which bord ers on the naive, or suggests a facetious motive underneath. Tak e any Army order, put it on a table and examine it c losely and nine times out of ten youll find that the order is hard and fast that there are no loopholes, and that !rom the Arny s vie WIJoint there is a reason "why?" But not so is the recent EF'TC order on the wearing or n eckties. I was fascinated by the wording or it. Here, for onc e the ArmY appears to have landed a halfhearted pun ch, l eaving itself ridiculously open for unfavorab l e r.omment and criticism. First or all, 1! a station is located in a climate where i L is considered to be too warm and uncomfortable !or military personnel working outside to b e wearing neckties, by what line of reasoning can the con clusion be reached that lt ls coole r indoors and that mill tary personnel working indoors do not surfer to the same degree as those out of doors? And, according to the ruling, "those engag e d in outdoor work may go without ties--is there anyone who will dispute that picking up paper s on a clean-up detail ls not outdoor work? (Yet, how many section commanders will permit their clean-up details to pollee the area necktie-less?) And, suppose a clerk, working indoors and wearing a tie, is asked to lend a helping hand in moving furniture !rom one building to another--as soon as he ste p s out side carrying a desk or a chair he ls Presumed to be working outdoors, isn t he? BUt can he orr his tle while doing it? Yes . !! he wan t s to stop and give explanations t o every officer who may stop him in the course of his work. Then there ls that part of the order Which permits personnel engaged in manual labor to go without ties. No detailed ex.,. planation or just what constitutes manual labor accompanies the directive, but here, again, is there anyone who will deny that punching a typewriter keyboard, or pushing a p encil or filing special orders is not manual labor--particularly when shirts are soaked through w1 th sweat and the p erspiration ls falling in droplets from the. brow? However, let us a ssume that the two rulings on outd oor work and manual labor are !ron-clad. Now, does the Army expec t every soldier to adhere to those rule s to the letter? Of course lt does, otherwise they would never have been issued. BUt, usually when the Army issues an ord e r it has ways and means of determining and insuring the degree to which those orders are carried out. In this case, I personally do not believe that the Army intends every officer to question every GI without a tie to see whether that GI is qualified to g o tie less--and yet, in what other manner could lt possibly be determined to what extent the orders being obeyed? Certainly in the light of the above presumptions, the orders on the wearing or neckties were issued on a tongu e-in-the cheek basis. Another detail which merits attention i s t h e a c t that at Eglin F'ield all p ersonne l are permitted t o go without ties. Eglin F'i eld 1 s but 60 miles away from Tyndall, directly westward, and i f it i s any hotter at Eglin than lt ls at Tyndall, the dif ferenc e i s not due to the sun. The final point I wish to make ls a touchy o n e ror most or us. I f y ou have ever gone o n sick call or awroache d a m edical o r fleer with a case or prickly heat, t h e n you are familiar with the g esture o r raised hands in the air signifying that medical scie nce has not as yet come through w1 th any cure !or this summe r scourge. They tell you the only thing to d o is to keep cool and dry--bot h o r which are in this climate. And no ment ion is made that the wearing of n eckt ies gives any relief to the s tricken. A soldier with a case or Prickly h eat is an uncomfo rtable soldier. An uncomfortable soldie r doe s not e xecute his duties. with the greatest efficiency. --A GI Willi PRICKLY HEAT.

It was a free-hitting game in which the TYndall team poured it from the third inning and coasted through to a 15-9 triumph over the home squad. S/Sgt. Bob Patterson, Tornado first sacker and more popularly known as the sheriff or Triggertown, etched himself a permanent niche in Tyndall's baseball hall of fame by hitting safely in six consecutive trips to the plate, which, coupled with his 5-for-5 in the game against Bronson, gave him a total or 11 straight hits. Patterson's phenomenal hitting streak boosted his batting average to .569, 200pointsbetter than his closest rival, Lt. "Hub" Fre eman, hard-hitting T/F second baseman. Patterson, a former Mississippi State d iam o n d star, triple d in his firs t tim e at bat on Tues day and followed up with fiv e successive infield hits, which included two bunts. Also, Freeman and Nick Orange each round Moody hurlers ror three hit s which contribute d no little to the Tornado cause.

Gordon Beach, former hurler for the Alexandria, Va., White Sox, went rour and twothirds innings for the ValdoBta squad, giving up seven runs and ten hits while walking two. Sil verman relieved Beach and the former fared no better at the hands of the T/F batsmen, who were too much "in the mood. The Tornadoes found the re11ef hurler for ten hits and eight runs.

June 10, TY H 0 ALL TAR G ET Page 9 TYNDALL NINE EVENS SERIES WITH AS GLASSER RECEIVES CREDIT FOR 9-6 TRIUMPH; PATTERSON GETS 5 FOR 5; WILLIAMS TRIPLES Snapping a losing streak at the expense of a team with four ex-major leaguers in the line-up, the Tornadoes returned from P e nsacola Sunday night with a well-deserved 9-6 triumph over the Bronson Field diamond squad. The TYndall win squared the series between t h e wo teams at 1:-1. Prior to the ranson game, the Tornadoes ha d gone down in defeat in three successive contests, the longest losing streak in TtF' bAseball history. However, their triumph over Bronson's Ted Williams, Bob -Kennedy, et al, ample proof that the Tornadoes had not lost their grip, and were once again ready to begin a victory march. Bob Patterson, fleet-rooted Tornado first sacker, stole the :batting spotlight in Sunday.s game when h e _connected for five straight hits in five official trips to the plate, scoring three times Patterson, who hails from Mississippi, was in the lead-off position and in hi s last tim e at bat was walked by Baxter, the ranson hurler. Joe Glasser started on the mound for TYndall, and although relieved in the fifth, with one away, received credit for the victory. Glasser gave up four runs on nine hits and issued 10 free passes, one or which was intentional. Ted Williams, former .AJnerican League batting champ, was the biggest thorn in the T/F righthander's side. Williams singled in his first to the .plate and then in the third inn ing, tripled to right, for his only hits or the day. Glasser walked him in the fifth on purPose; in the sixth, the lanky lefthander hit into a double and in the ninth he lunged on one or Livingston's pitches for a "humpbacked liner (a mile up and a mile down) which Third Baseman caught after several xious moments. Livingston, entering the game in the fifth with one down and bases loaded, set down the next tw. o batters on a strikeOut and a ground ball to first. He .vas nicked for two runs on six hits, or which only one, a triple by Tremark, was good for extra bases. Heinz was the initial Bronson hurler, and in six innings he gave up eight runs on 13 hits, striking out seven and walking He was charged with the loss. Baxter, another righthander, rel.ieved Heinz in the seventh, and in yielding one run was nicked for three hits in his three innings on the mound, is3uing three walks. and fanning a like number. The Tornadoes, whose recent defeats were mainly the fault of their own laxness, turned the tables against Bronson and took advantage of Navy errors in the advantage or two Navy errors in the third inning to score three runs on three hits. With Patterson and Freeman on bas e in that third 'inning, Billy Hines sent a sharp single into center !leld to score a Pair, and later crossed the plate himself when Johnny Becker drove a :ground ball .through Bob Kennecty, theBronson third sacker. Bronson scored their first run inthe on thrie successive singles. In the third the Navy team tied up matters at 3-3 by scoring two runs on o n e hit, a triple by Williams a nd a T/r' error. TYndall jump ed into the lead again in the fifth whe n "Hub" Fre. eman tripled and singles by Becker, Tarr and Jackrel accounted for thr ee runs. Bron so n added one in their half of the fifth on two walk s and a pair of singles. In the s ixth, sing les by Patterson and Hines accounted for twa more T/F markers, wlth the aid of two Bronson passed balls. At the end or the sixth the count was 8-5 in favor or Tyndall. Each team scored a run in the eighth for their final tallies or the game. --Band Notes-BROTHERS OF T/F BAND MEMBERS IN NAVY, SEA BEES AND MARINES Mall call for the 608th AAF band seems to be a fraternal ser vice these days, with almost 50 percent of tbe fellows having brothers in the Armed Forces throughout the world and in all branches or the service.

As a civilian I contributed $10 a week to her sup port while my brother contributed $25 a week, then more than 50 per cent of her total income. My brother now sends her $50 a month as her chief supporter. May I claim her as a dependent and also contribute to her support? A. Yes. If the $10 a you gave your mother as a civilian amounted to a substantial part of her income, you may apply for a Class B allowance for her, which will entitle her to $37 a month, of which $22 comes out of your Army pay. Q Is it OK for me to wear my decorations, service medals and badges on my khaki shirts during the summer months? A. It's all right for you to wear fruit salad on your summer shirts, providing the shirt is being worn as an outer garment. AR 600-40 Para. 68a ( 1) states that decora tions "may be worn on the ser vice coat or the shirt when not equipped for combat or simulated combat." Q H ere's a sticker: I have five depend ents, my wife, three chil dren and my mother. Recently my wife divorced me. She re ceives no alimony. Now I 1'.:uJtt to marry aga in. Will my second wife be entitled to receive an aLlowance and, if so, will my mother and children still be entitled to theirs? A. If you remarry, your second wife will receive the usual Class A allowance of $50 a month. Your first wife, not having been granted alimony, will receive no allow ance. Your children will continue to receive $70 a month, $30 for the first child and $20 for each of the others. Your mother will continue to receive her allowance, too, provided that her status as a dependent has not changed. There will be no additional deductions from your pay for the Class A allowance to your second wife as you are already paying $27 a month, which is the maximum amount that may be deducted from a Gl's pay.
