' WEDNESDAY, MAY 11, 1949 (ARK.) COURIER NK\VS Airlift Fliers Count Blockade Ending as a Personal Victory In Cold War 'Battle of Berlin' By I)uiiaM Doanr CEI.LE, Germany, May 11— W>— The men who fly the airlift coiiiil "Mhs end of the Berlin blockade us a personal triumph. They claim U was their Airlift which won the' "Battle ol Berlin." And they think this cold war victory deserves the usual war's end recognition—a special holiday. How about V-B day, they say, to celebrate "Victory In Berlin." "We have V-E day, for victory !n Europe and V-J day for victory in Japan," said Lt. Truman IAICBS of Indianapolis. "So why not a V-B (Jay? This victory may prove lo be just, as important." The idea met a ready response among the, pilots and ground crews who have been working night and riay (o keep Berlin -tipphed with food and fuel. "We could certainly use a holiday, all vight^—and I think we've earned on." f^ald Corp. Joseph H owned, TainHon. Mass. Even the airlift commanders who talked of carrying on the airlift despite I lift blockade's end iisrucd v«'Uh the men that hey had earned n holiday. "The boys rightly regard this blockade lifting as a personal victory, and they ore proud of it," said l.t. Col. Robert J. Duvan, North Hollywood, Calif., acting commander nf the big U.S. airlift base here ^ "They have really earned n vic- '' tory celebration and L holiday." "This has been just as important a battle as any I ever fought," said Ihe combat veteran, 1,1. Col. Comvny S, Hal], Bin Water Street, Rose Cily North Little Rock, Ark., commander of the airlift base at nearby FasslvrR. Hall fought with the Eighth Air Force In Europe during the wnr, "H has been fully comparable to a wartime battle and I am sure tht> men arc all mighty proud and happy to have it. end in such a U'fOl deserved victory," Ha]l added. There has been no letup in airlift operations, even though trains and trucks will begin Thursday to lake over tiie job of hauling food and fuel to Berlin. But even while they worked on, there was an air of relief a mo riff the soldiers nt twin bases. They saw at least an early easing ot the pressure. For .some, the blockade's end meant hope of leave 50 long postponed, or return to homes. "I hope this really means the beginning of the, end of this cold war." said Corporal Howard. L- "F'm alraid we may have cured f only the symptom, not the real cause, of the trouble." .said Lt. Ed Abrnnis, Jacksonville Fla. "The actual results will probably be k»ow only after the four-power confer- ence." Many soldiers, despite their weariness, were in favor of keeping the airlift going—partly because of the valuable trnlninK it provides the Air Force and partly to be prepared igalnst ntiy Russian attempt, to reimpose the blockade.
