(Staff Photo by Margaret Hlnkle) By Eldon Cage Tribune Staff Writer TIPTON ARMORY — LasfSun- day just after 12noon, following church services and a short visit with my invalid mother at my brother Harold's residence, I stopped at the Tipton National Guard Armory, as is my custom, when the local Guards convene one weekend a month for the two-day maneuvers and drills, to learn that about 30 of the service men went that morning to the West Street Christian Church for Sunday services with First Sgt, Bill Cunningham on a volunteer basis and another 15 had gone to other area church services of their choice. Having gathered this information, I was leaving the Armory when' Sgt. Bill, two young officers and Sgt 1st Class Ronald Weeks, eating chow in the Orderly Room, invited me to have Turkey dinner with them. I at first reluctantly refused and then quickly and politely accepted before the offer was withdrawn to take chow as the Turkey and •trimmins' was too appetizing for my WAV n «Air Force taste buds' to turn down. Sgt. Archie Reynolds efficiently and, kindly served my food on a standard GI tray and brought me some delicious coffee and some cold, cold •milk. - j i• Lt. Forest Durnal of Albany and Lt. Robert winters of Muncie were conversing about the personnel morale of the Co. B 138th Signal Battallion of the 38th Division, which is the Tipton and Elwood National Guard unit. Sgt. Weeks of Hobbs too, expressed his admiration for the excellent.attitude of the 155 men and four officers in Co. B. All three men related! incidents of some verbal abuse against the so called establishment; and the military by eccentric civilians. But for the most part all opined that; the great majority of United States citizens were supporting the military and that all rational shareholders in America were concerned about human rights, and wrongs. • The three told of some of their military travels and then sort of withdrew talking, to give two old timers, Sgt. Bill Cunningham and myself talking, to give ingham and myself a shot at the verbal spotlight. Sgt. Bill told- lightly of someof his military experiences in Europe in WW n and said that in all of his overseas duty lie had met only one home county soldier and that was! the late John Griffith of Jefferson Township. The two met on an Italian City street and j Bill said he and Griffith warmly; hugged each other like two far-from-home Tipton County natives should. Bill then told of the excitement and thrills of V-E Day while be Was in Europe and then his shipment to Japan as the Asian War j was ending. The young officers Durnal and Winters and Sgt. Weeks were far more attentive and seemed . more interested about old WW n incidents than I'm sure Sgt. Bill or I thought they would. So all of you 300. WW I living Tipton County Vets, you about 2000 WW II Tipton County living veterans, 200 Korean Vets,, 400 Vietnam War Vets aind Tipton County Vets without wars relate occassionally some of your military experiences andltravels to your fellow Tipton Couhtians without boring your listeners. the foursome finishing their GI food; before I did, turned their questioning eyes toward me and since I have bad to apologize for years; to my Navy friends Virgil Recobs, Roger Crowe 11, Jack; Holbrook and many more vere for the great work in WW II by tny branch of Service the Air ; Force, I feared these Army people wouldn't want to hear me out, so I told of meeting Lt. Raymond Thompson Jr., a Sharpsville native, in New Guinea in 1945; Lt. Monroe Jordon, a University of Tampa classmate teammate of mine, in the Grenada Air Force Base, Miss., in 1943; Col. Jack Carpenter, a Ft Wayne native, with whom I-had played baseball and softball against in the early 1940's and then in September 1945 I met him again in Tokyo, Japan where he was an executive officer of Gen. Douglas MacArthur. Too, I related playing basketball and baseball with several Indiana athletes in the Southwest Pacific from Australia to Japan and that I had known several of them before going overseas. These were some of the many pleasant things to remember. And then there were many sad (Continued on page six)
