DESPITE THE NUMBER of enlisted men whoare members of the U. S. Field Artillery Assn., welearn that a good many others have the impressionthat this is solely an officers' organization.Although under our constitution that is true in timeof peace, in time of war 
all 
artillerymen areeligible to membership and all its benefits.With the field of artillery in general so greatly broadened in this war, we welcome into the foldall personnel (enlisted and officer) who might benefit from our J
OURNAL
and our facilities. Theseinclude those with the field artillery proper, of course, and also members of TD units, the armoredforce, cannon companies—in fact, any and all whodeal in any way with larger-than-small-arms or who are interested in them. Not only are enlisted men eligible for membership. We are definitely anxious to receivearticles from them. Their approach to problems isalways a practical one. They have developed or started the development of some of this war'sfinest and most useful short-cuts and devices. Weare as interested in their narratives as in those of any one else.You are all eligible for membership, in which both you and we take pride.WITH INCREASED TEMPO of militaryactivity everywhere, we would remindcommanders to forward to us their operationsaccounts, even though they be carbons of reports.Some of these may not be publishable now, butwill be of inestimable value to the Arm for later  publication.
