I 1 Vol.. I No. 14 Air Corps APALACHICOLA Gunnery School, Tyndall Field, Florida, April 25. 1942 BASE TO AID TRAI.NING PROGRAM I Wing Commander Charles Beamish o the R.A.F temporarily stationed here as liason adviser on flexibie gunnery. .KHAKIESN BECOME OFFICIAL AS o.D'S:' GO TO THE CLEANERS Although originally scheduled ..for:o-May lst, Tyndall Field personnel wearing their "khakies" today. Credit for this humane move goes to Colonel Maxwell. who. after consulting with Tyndall's peerless weather forecasting staff. wrote to the Southeast Air Cor ps Training Center Headquarters requesting permission to have Tyndall Field men store their "O.D's" in moth balls a week earlier. The official khaki uniform for enlisted men includes: Service cap or garrison cap. khaki trousers, khaki shirt, and olive-drab necktie or tan cotton necktie. For ethletics, shorts are permissible but the upper part of the body sh be clothed, except for swimming. An important step towards faoili tating the training of students at Tyn dall's Gunnery School is under way at Apalachicola, where construction has begun on a $5,000,000 sub-base. Setting some sort of a record for speedy action, less than three months elapsed between the origination of plans for the project and the beginning of actual construction. Upon the recommendation of Colonel Maxwell, the Southeast Air Corps Train ing Center Headquarters appointed Tyn dall s Captain William P. Kevan as Project Officer for the Apalachicola air base. The chief purpose of the base will be to eliminate unnecessary flights from Tyndall Field to the gun nery practice range. A portion of the planes will be stationed there while operating with aeriel targets. Captain Kevan's task will be to supervise construction work and insure a strict adherence to original plans. The base will be staffed with necessary officers from Tyndall Field along .with one squadron plus arms and service personnel. Chief Clerk of the junior will be S/Sgt. Dewey Gossett. T/Sgt. William Balentine and Pvt. Joe Trombitas will replace S/Sgt. Gossett, who at present is assistant to Post SergeantMajor, Bob Lankford. S/Sgt. Lester B. Walker has been tentatively assigned as sergeant-maj-. or of the new post. The project is not expected to be completed until thefall, however, tne personnel will probably leave for Apalachicola in mid-suwner


From Circular Letter No. 29, Chief of Chaplains, dated April 15, 1942, the follpwing two articles are reproduced. 1,\fould it not be wisdom for us to read them carefully and take our cue from these two great Generals, and like them, look God for guidance in this, our ho u r of trial ? "GENERAL MACARTHUR ASKS DIVINE GUIDANCE: The Associated Press stated on April 5, 1942, that G e neral Doug l a s MacArthur bespoke Easter-tide divine guidance. The General, an Episcopalian from Little Rock Arkansas, introduced the religious note in his military p reparations as he replied to a radiogram from w P. Witsell, the rector of C hris t Church Little Rock, which stated: ''rhe church of your baptism sends E aster g reetings and expression o f faith and loving pride in you.' The reply from A ustralia read: 'At the altar where I first joined the sanctuary of God, I ask that you se.ek divine guidance for me in the struggle that looms ahead. 1 "GENERAL ORDERS OF' GEORGE WASHINGTON: (Issued May 2 1778, at Valiey Forge.) 'The Co:r:unander-in-Chief directs that divine service be performed every Sunday at eleven o'clock in each brigade which has a chaplain. Those brigades which have none will attend the place of worship nearest to them. I t is expected that Offi cers of all ranks will, by their attendance, set an example to their men.' V;'hile we are du l y perforrnini the duty of g ood soldiers we certainly our,ht not to be inattentive to the hiEhest duties of religion. To the distinguished characteristics of a patriot it should be our highest glory to add to the mor e distinguished characteristics of a Christian." Can we, as soldiers of these glorious UNITED STATES AMERICA, when we follow the exam ple of these two of o u r greatest Generals? If t hey feel that it is a privileg e to worship God, s o should we. --Herbert T. Wilson, Post Chaplain A PANAMA CITY SIXTH VJSlTS TYNDALL "Yesterday we went to Tynd all Field. The whole class went.

Master Sergeant Peavy One of the most thorough l y efficient enliste d men on Tynd all Field is Master Se rgeant f;lather H Peavy. I n h i s capacity o f Sergeant-Uajor o f t h e P o s t Hospital, he is credited w i t h de monstrating a remarkable ability i n administrative affairs. The Serg eant is a native of Dallas, Texas, where h e attended the Univer sity of Texas. A rmy life i s nothing new to this veteran soldier. D uring the last war, Serg e ant Peavy was accepted for service as a c a de t Afte r the war, in 1920, he reenl isted and served with t h e Fo urth Cor p s Area i n termittently for the next ten yea r s The ve .rious branches o f s e r vice that the sergeant w a s associated with include the finance, infantry, DEML ( R S) and quartermaster units. Upon his reenlistment in 1337, S g t Peavy asked to be assigned t o t he Med ica l Corps. His r equ est was granted and in June of 1 9 4 0 the Sergeant was t ransferred to Bark sdale Field, Shre veport, Louisiana. A t Barksd a l e the Sergeant served as c h i e f cle r k a nd l a ter as mess sergeant o f his detachment. The experience in organizati on and detail gained b y S e r g eant mess s e r geant has proved invaluable in h i s present position. "In October, 1 9 41, t h e S e r geant was transferred from Bar ksdale t o Tyndall Field and assuwed the duties o f Sergeant-Major o f the Post H os pital. JACK;PARKS L t Col.

E QUARTERMASTER veryone o n the Field will no d oubt be glad to hear that the QM has received the authority to purchase water coolers for each barracks building. An idea of the number of transactions that our purchase and contract dep artment make can be obtained from the fact that they make between 200 and 300 purchases per month, from boats to sandpaper. For the men who feel in the neeQ. of relaxation and can stand the pace, we have a brand new volley-ball court in the back of our barracks. From N. Y. via come reports that three out of four persons on the streets are wearing uniforms. And speaking of furloughs, we notice that our company clerk i s back and once more is behind his desk. The Q.M has finally organized its fire department and thus far, Hall, Gilio, Huchaby, Camp, Jones, Edekar, Lively, Scott, Binion and Ward are all on constant duty. Don't forge t that next week brings with it a May dance The cleanest motor in any vehicle on the Post is in the staff car of Colonel Moore, who has a driver named Private Ward, and he .really keeps that motor clean! -RKG TYNDALL BOASTS UNUSUAL EXAMPLE OF IN ARMY CAREERS An almost unbelievable example of parallel Army careers exists between two men in Weis' squadron. In addition to their similar Army records the men are alike in physical build and are often mistaken for one another. Both boys come from small towns in Pennsylvania and their enlistment dates are only five days apart. They suffered recruit training together at Chanute Field, both were sent to Lowry Field, Colorado, to attend the same class in Clerical School, and graduated on the same day with the same grade. Upo n graduation from school, these tw o lads were sent to Maxwell Field at about the time that their present organization was being activated and were assigned to it as buck privates. The boys held down "1st seconds" at the same time, and w e r e promoted to the ranks of corporal, sergeant and staff-sergeant on the same orders. There are only five pounds difference in their wei ght, both have $5,000 worth of government insurance and both made the same very high score on their Ar m y classification test! Their f avorite h obby is bowling at which sport they are quite proficient. A local grill is their favorite hangout and as r egular customers there they ver y easily persuade the help to dish them out extra portions of ice crea.m. Their favorite sandwich is a hamburger covered with catsup. A fitting climax to this story would be to tell you that they have similar names, but just to make their tale believable, they haven't, they're quite different, one of the m en is S/Sgt. Bernard Trakimus and the other is SSgt. Robert SkagenberE 100/' INSURED From the student detachment l ast week came the anno u ncement that Personnel Officer Lt. Garrett Rus h had sold every man in Squadron E", Class 4217, ,000 worth of go vernm en t This is the first time that a complete squadron o n Tyndall Field had taken out insurance. Lt. Rush had a difficult t ime persuading one of the students but the student finally acquiesced. Two days later the student was killed in a plane crash while on his way to another field, however, despite the fact that he had not paid one cent, he was fully covered by the insurance and his beneficiary will receive the payments WANT A RIDE TO NEW YORK? Anyone desiring a ride to New Yor k can get in touch with Sgt. Toby Larnuraglia of .85lst Ordnance. The sergeant leaves o n May 4th for fifteen days.

SOFTBALL In order to plan, organize and car ry through the numerous athletic and recreational activities being consid ered for the coming months, all squadrons are urged to appoint a non-commissioned officer as t heir A & R representative and send his name in to Lt. Thompson or Lt. Kopach at the A & R Office. Competition for the week in the soft ball circuit was limited to three games. Whether the top-heavy scores were due to the inability of the p i tchers to get into proper condition, or to the boys hltting offing t heir p ent up steam with the willow, is hard to determine, but undoubtedly the slugging was terrific. Lt. Watson's pencil pushers went into double figures to convince Captain Gardner's boy's of their superi9rity. The score was 24-2. Ot her scores wer e : Lt. Campbell's batsmen-15, Lt. Engelbrecht's men-3; L t Whitehurst's boys 9 Air Base team-0. GAMES NEXTWEEK TEAMS Capt. Roy E. Gardner Lt. E. Adkins Lt. H. T. Whitehurst Lt. Cletus Keating Jr. Lt. William Marchesi Lt. E.R.

( BASEBALL Influenced by the numerous questions on the subject, Lt. Thompson, A & R Officer, disclosed to the "TARGET11 that a plan to organize three baseball teams who will compete against one another and also with outside is being considered. The present lack of a suitable playing field and approval of the plan by the necessary authorities are the chie f obstacles. However if there are enough men interested who have ability or experien c e the.Lieutenant will go ahead with the plans if and when they are a.ppr :oved. All men desiring to play basebail are therefore requested to write, rank, organization and previous experience on a slip of paper and turn it in to the A & R Office. BOXING A boxing ring is being constructe d behind Mess Hall #1 and upon its completion a series of inter-squadron competitions will be held there.
