DIVISION HEADQUARTERS (com. from page 1)
at a shipyard on the mainland at New Brunswick. The list of ships
built there did not include the one our group came home on. I knew
that some ships were sunk off the coast of the U.S., but did not
know just where.
On the way home we took the opportunity to stop at Anderson-
ville, GA. The museum and information concerning POWs of our
wars since the Civil War is very well done. I would recommend a
visit if you are in that part of the country. A special trip is also
worthwhile. Regardless of your political affiliation, Jimmy Carter's
boyhood and present home at Plains, GA, is just a short distance
from Andersonville. Seeing the conditions Jimmy grew up in is also
quite interesting. Should you be there on the right date, you could
go to Sunday school and have Jimmy as your teacher.
During the next couple of weeks, we will get to see some of our
Hellcat friends. Pete and Fran Higbie [Div/Arty] are planning to
stop at least long enough to go out for dinner with us and Pete's
brother. On May 13 Don and Wandalee Fehrenbaker, Ray
Sacharski, and Ginny and I plan to have lunch in Decatur, IL, with
Sherill Espy and his wife Beulah.
I have not heard from any of the other Headquarter units. This
Wayne Fencil [Div/Arty], who died April 11, is shown with his
granddaughter Michelle, and also on duty in Germany, 1945.
makes it hard to pass on any news about Div Hdq, CCA, CCB and
all of the rest. I feel certain some of you have something to say.
The time is nearing when we will need to make plans for going
to Las Vegas. Ginny and I plan to go,and we have heard from a few
of the Div Arty folks indicating they plan to attend. As in past
years, it has been a great pleasure seeing, and some cases meeting
you for the first time. Plan to take time to be there; next year may
be too late!
An idea we would like to pass along to other units. Some of us
are planning to make a contribution to the 12th Armored Division
Memorial Museum in the name of our members who have died
recently. This could be a great way to help the museum and honor
some of our buddies. After a conversation with Bill Hardin, I
understand that such arrangements can be made.

June is bustin' out all over, all over the meadow and the lea (from
Oklahoma), and we all hope that it is bustin' out for you too, with
all the seeds you planted popping up out of the ground, and all the
plans you planted popping up to completion. How poetic can you
Thinking about the 12th Armored Association, one has to wonder
about the success of a group of widely scattered, diverse men and
women who held together and made strong, an organization that
could have been a failure. Wouldn't you agree that we were, AND
ARE, blessed with extraordinary people of great dedication, fore-
sight and skill? As your rep, I can only guess at the time and sacri-
fice they have made for you and me and now for our children.
Here’s what’s next.
