The USO Canteen FReeper Style
Delivering a Touch of Home

.

.

A Touch of Home

.


This is how I think of the USO Canteen 
Freeper Style. It is like a cottage down a road,
a place where a weary veteran can spend the night. 


Since it opened, it is magical how so many
Freepers who post here, feel it too. 
It has been so dear how the Freepers
kept making it a cottage - a home-type of 
place that had a huge living room
for them to visit in and a dance floor, 
a library, etc. 


Many Veterans have written to me, 
saying that the Canteen is like home
to them for the first time since they 
served. 


This is your Canteen -
a respite from our busy 
and sometimes troubling world. 
Make yourself at home.

Snow Bunny

.



If you know a Veteran, someone in your family, 
friend of the family, neighbor, who served their  
country, take a brief moment of your day to thank 
them. 


Thank them for the sacrifice they made
for the better good of their country.


We at Free Republic, and the USO Canteen FReeper 
Style, are thankful for every service member 
in our military, who has served our great nation.


So, to the men and women who answered the call,
in both times of war and peace, thank you.


Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields. 

John McCrae

The USO Canteen Honors FReepers
who have served, or are now serving their country.

.

You may have a loved one who has served in the past.
We at the FReeper USO Canteen would like to honor each and every one.

March 10,1945....50 B-29’s crashed
burning four square miles in the heart of Tokyo

At the same time hearts were torn apart
in homes throughout America.Where
loved ones of the 11 men on each of
those 50 planes waited and prayed in
vain for the “ safety of the boys’.

It has been over 50 years ago since
the low-flying raid took place.

Among those who died in the raid was.......
2nd Lt. Claude Taylor Dean
873rd AAF Bomber Squadron.....co-pilot

Along with others of his squadron,
he was stationed on Saipan in the
South Pacific during the final weeks
awaiting the orders to strike.

He was smiling and sun-backed in the
photographs he had sent home to the
family.

He wore his cap at the jaunty angle
and his rakish mustache was
representative of the same bravado
in attitude affected by hundreds
of other young American men
of the Clark Gable era.

Dean like many others was anxious
to get into the heat of the battle. He
graduated from Corinth High School
in 1937 when the turmoil which
turned to WW11 was beginning to build.

After two years at Union University
in Jackson, Tenn. He made the decision
to join the U.S.Army Air Force. He
went in as a mechanic.

“I remember he was so excited, yet
so worried he would not be accepted.
It was his weight, he was so small. He
was afraid his weight would keep him
from passing the physical”, recalled
his sister, Fadra Dean Dodd.

“He was so funny in his desperation.
He ate several pounds of bananas just
before going for his physical,” she
smiled in remembering this fun
loving brother.

Whatever the reason- perhaps it was the
trick with the bananas,Dean passed the
physical, and was accepted then sent to
Canute Field, Illinoins.

Shortly after WW11 broke out, Dean
began flight training, stationed at
Selma, Ala.

He received his wings in Moultrie, Ga.

“ In the fall of 1943, he was in B-29 training
at Salina, Kan. I went up there to spend a
week with him. I remember how guarded
they kept the B-29’s on the base. They
wouldn’t let me, or any other authorized
personnel get within a half mile of one.”
His sister added.

In early 1944 Dean married in a beautiful
ceremony in the base chapel.

During the summer as he passed his
27th birthday in July, he spent his
additional training in Hobbs,N.M.

He spent Christmas stateside but it was
shortly afterwards he was sent to the
Island of Saipan and into the heat of
the battle.Other members of the same
group were scattered throughout
neighboring islands and air strips.

“ His squadron was involved in raids over
Nagasaki and other key cities.Then on the
night of March 10th ,the B-29’s from the
Islands of Saipan, Guam and Tinian,
rendezvoused for the raid over Tokyo.”
Mrs. Dodd recalled.

This was the first time the B-29’s had
gone in as low as 4,000 feet.

“It has been explained to me that being a
nighttime raid, it was necessary to go in
this low.”, she explained.

Dean’s plane was hit and crashed into the
side of the mountain. The air-ship was not
found until after the war was over.

The men were identified by their dog tags
or dental records. Their bodies were taken
to a mausoleum in the Philippines.

In the fall of 1945, the family had the
young man’s body brought back to
Corinth for burial there.

Since the losses were so great
they never went in that low again.

On that night though.......
they burned four square miles in the heart of Tokyo

We salute the memory of 2nd Lt. Claude Taylor Dean

Tribute To HEROES

.

While the dogtag is used to provide information on an individual serviceman,
I also believe that the chain which holds them represents a connection to all
servicemen, no matter where you served, how you served or when you served.

.

The Minuteman in 1776 has a connection to the soldier fighting in Afghanistan today.
That connection is every individual who has ever served in the United States Military.

Each of us represents a link in the chain that connects that Minuteman of
over 200 years ago to the soldier in Afghanistan today.

The great intangible of America's wars beyond logistics,
beyond strategy, beyond wonder weapons and Generals,
is the spiritual force of its fighting men and women -
and that is the force that the USO so serves.

Apra Harbor, Guam, Oct. 17, 2002 — USS City of Corpus Christi (SSN 705) passes the Apra Harbor breakwater at Orote Point. She will be part of Submarine Squadron 15 (SUBRON 15). The Navy had announced the reactivation of SUBRON 15 in February 2001 and that three Los Angeles-class submarines would be stationed in Guam. After 20 years of dormancy, the squadron was reactivated to support the homeporting of the three Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarines, of which City of Corpus Christi is the first.

Today's FEEBLE attempt at humor:

Max sat at the bar totally dejected. The bartender served him
his second drink and said, "What's wrong pal?"

"I'll never understand women." Max said. "The other night my
wife threw me a birthday party. She told me that later on, as
her gift to me, I could do with her whatever I wanted."

"Wow!" said the bartender. "But why so unhappy? That
sounds like quite a gift to me."

"Well, " Max went on, "I thought about it and sent her home to
her Mother. Now she won't even speak to me."

Today's classic warship, USS Wasp

Sloop of War
Displacement. 450
Lenght. 106'7"
Beam. 30'1"
Draft. 14'1-5/8"
Complemrnt. 110
Armament. 2 12-pdrs., 16 32-pdr. car.

The USS Wasp, a sloop of war constructed in 1806 at the Washington Navy Yard, was commissioned sometime in 1807, Master Commandant John Smith in command.

Wasp's movements in 1807 and 1808 remain unrecorded, but, by 1809, she was cruising the eastern seaboard of the United States. By the close of 1810, she was operating from the ports of Charleston, S.C., and Savannah, Ga., presumably concentrating on the waters along the southern portion of the country's eastern coast. In 1811, she moved to Hampton Roads Va., where she and brig Nautilus joined frigates United States and Congress in forming a squadron commanded by Commodore Stephen Decatur.

She continued to operate along the coast of the middle states after the United States went to war with Great Britain in June of 1812. Her single action of that war came in October 1812. On the 13th, she exited the mouth of the Delaware River and, two days later, encountered a heavy gale which carried away her jib boom and washed two crewmen overboard. The following evening, Wasp came upon a squadron of ships and in spite of the fact that two of their number appeared to be large men-of-war, made for them straight away. She finally caught the enemy convoy the following morning on and discovered six merchantmen under the protection of a 22-gun sloop-of-war, HMS Frolic.

At half past eleven in the morning on 18 October, Wasp and Frolic closed to do battle, commencing fire at a distance of 60 to 60 yards. In a short, but sharp, fight, both ships sustained heavy damage to masts and rigging, but Wasp prevailed over her adversary by boarding her. Unfortunately for the gallant little ship, a British 74-gun ship-of-the-line, Poietiers, appeared on the scene, and Frolic's captor became the final prize of the action.

Wasp's commanding officer, Master Commandant Jacob Jones, had to surrender his small ship to the new adversary because he could neither run nor hope to fight such an overwhelming opponent. Wasp served briefly in the Royal Navy as Peacock but was lost off the Virginia capes in 1813.

Dean Dodd was one who paid the ultimate price for us. His family has our prayers. These small biographies you do help make sure none are ever forgotten. Dean will be on my mind all day as I go out from my home and enjoy my life. He puts a face and a story onto what would otherwise seem like a vague or unnoticed concept of what it really means to be free. Thanks for your work, and thanks to Vet Dog's family.

Two blondes were in a parking lot trying to unlock the door of their Mercedes with a coat hanger. They tried and tried to get the door open, but they just couldn't! The blonde with the coat hanger stopped for a moment to catch her breath. The other blonde said anxiously, "Hurry up! It's starting to rain and the top is down."

Best I could do so early in the morning!

An icon of the U.S. Air Force; a remarkably creative tactician; and one of the Cold War's fiercest warriors; General Curtis LeMay led a colorful if extremely controversial career. From early on he argued that, "if you are going to use military force, then you ought to use overwhelming military force. Use too much and deliberately use too much... You'll save lives, not only your own, but the enemy's too." His men called him "Iron Ass" because he demanded so much of them. But because of his own physical courage and his military rigor most of them respected him immensely.

In the last months of the Second World War, LeMay took command of the main air effort against Japan, turning around its tactics. Instead of the established U.S. policy of daylight, precision bombing, he ripped out the armaments on 325 B-29s and loaded each plane with firebomb clusters. On March 10, 1945 he ordered the bombers out at 5 - 9,000 feet over Tokyo.

The devastation wrought that first night was catastrophic: the raid incinerated more than 16 square miles of the city, killing 100,000 people. According to the official Air Force history of the Second World War, "No other air attack of the war, either in Japan or Europe, was so destructive of life and property." For months LeMay's bombers went out night after night, relentlessly keeping up their fire-bombing campaign, so that by the end of the war, flames had totally or partially consumed 63 Japanese cities, killing half a million people and leaving eight million homeless.

Asked later about the morality of the campaign, LeMay replied: "Killing Japanese didn't bother me very much at that time... I suppose if I had lost the war, I would have been tried as a war criminal.... Every soldier thinks something of the moral aspects of what he is doing. But all war is immoral and if you let that bother you, you're not a good soldier."

LeMay was convinced that the United States had been forced into the war in 1941 because the country was weak and unprepared. He recognized that the development of new long-range bombers meant that for the first time the continental United States would be vulnerable. And he believed the way to prevent an attack was to build a incredibly powerful, well-armed and well-trained Air Force.

Click the link to view the 873rd Squadron Patch

SQUADRON INSIGNIA:

Designed originally for the 676th in Great Bend in December, 1943, it was immediately popular, but in the rapid change of events that followed it was lost in the shuffle and did not turn up again until the arrival of the 873rd. It survived a number of signia contests and in July, of 1944 was adopted officially as the Squadron Insignia of the 873rd Bombardment Squadron.

Created to symbolize the immense size, yet graceful ease of the SUPERFORT, the elephant was chosen to typify size. His attitude, cocksure and easy going,symbolized the attitude of the men of the Squadron. The position of the hand dropping the bomb denoted ease and accuracy in ability to destroy the target, while the bomb became the symbol of destruction ... the cloud symbolized the altitude, while the little elephant's position of recline depicted the ease and grace of the immense 29 in flight. The red circle carried out the color scheme of the national colors. while the seven white stars on top and the three on the bottom designate the last two numerals of the Squadron number.

Best I could do so early in the morning!

If it will help improve the quality, may I suggest you sleep in until at least 6PM?

CESSNA UC-78B "BOBCAT"


The UC-78 is a military version of the commercial Cessna T-50 light transport. Cessna first produced the wood and tubular steel, fabric covered T-50 in 1939 for the civilian market. In 1940, the Air Corps ordered them under the designation AT-8 as multi-engine advanced trainers.

Thirty-three AT-8s were built for the Air Corps, and production continued under the designation AT-17 reflecting a change in equipment and engine types. In 1942, the AAF adopted the Bobcat as a light personnal transport and those delivered after January 1, 1943 were designated UC-78s. By the end of WW II, Cessna had produced more than 4,600 Bobcats for the AAF, 67 of which were transferred to the U.S. Navy as JRC-1s. In addition, 822 Bobcats had been produced for the Royal Canadian Air Force as Crane 1s.

Dubbed the "Bamboo Bomber" by the pilots who flew them, it was one of the aircraft featured in the popular television series "Sky King" of the 1940s and '50s.

Bless This House hummed along with this morning, twice because I love this song for our USO Canteen, and Prayer of Protection said for all who enter the USO Canteen Freeper Style, including our troops, our veterans, their families and our allies. Welcome to all who come to honor our troops, for whom this USO Canteen was created.

A PRAYER OF PROTECTION

The light of God surround you

The love of God enfold you

The power of God protect you

The presence of God watch over you

Wherever you are, God is,

And all is well.

Amen.

Wherever you are, God is, And all is well.

Hi Sam:

Re your post yesterday about Canada's flag and national emblem: May I append my two cents worth?

The Maple Leaf Flag has no history; no tradition, and no meaning.

Ditto for the Beaver. It was supposed to be a symbol of industry etc. It fails miserably.

I love Canada. But we are betraying everything that Canada might have meant. Everything that Canada once promised.

It is truly heartbreaking. I remember when the promise of Canada was much brighter.

I think we are going to have to sink lower before we smarten up and turn things around. That will come about only when we gird up our loins and seek God's Wisdom and Understanding and Strength to fight for the right.

Ol' Tom.
