Briefing and Griefing


BEING THAT YE ED is in the process of spending seven days a t the Provisional Training Squadron, it seems in order to devote this column to a few pithy comments on the subject of "on the job train'ing," or, as the men who take it describe it earthily, "basic." Knowing full well that we are risking all sorts of verbal abuse from our enlisted confederates, to say nothing of the many accusations that our proboscis is very chocolate in hue, we will come to the point and declare that we think the PTS is a good idea, and, if one can forget his natpral pre-unenthusiasm for his week a t the squadron, he can actually "enjoy" it and learn something. MUCH AS WE resent moving back to the base for a week, we freely admit it is the only way to effectively remind a GI that he is in the Army (until points do us part) and that many little GI customs, tricks and ways of doing things are easily forgotten. IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY spent your week at PTS,, here are some of the things you will discover over there: it is very smooth functioning organization, despite the fact that all but the "permanent party" personnel turn ove.' ---Fry week: the barracks are so clean, you can eat off the floors; S. Sgt. Gallagher, who puts you through your "hut, two, three fours," is a bearcat on drill and the best we have ever seen in th- army; you make the acquaintance of some mighty nice joes from other squadrons, who, up to now, you were probably oblivious to; and i t isn't half a s bad a s all the propaganda vou have been hearing.

Pvt. Ruth Redding is a native ( Rloomfield, New Jersey, where s k received her elementary and Jlig school training. It was a t Philade phia College that Pvt. Redding b 2 x 1 her preparation for a profe. ;ional career. After finishing a prt nedical course she was a n hono graduate in 1937, receiving a dc p e e to practice osteology. A year' :ellowship was also granted Pv Redding in the study of obstetric ~t the Philadelph~a College c lsteopathy, and she has enjoye .he practice of her chosen profe: ;ion in the city of Wilmington, De: mare. Last November in New York C i t ~ ?vt. Redding enlisted into th #omen's Army Corps and receive ler basic training in Ft. De VZoines, Iowa, after which she a] -ived a t WWAAF, and was a: ;igned a t Station Hospital in the dt 3artment 'of physio-therapy.

By S. Sgt. Walter Wakefield In the first official softball con,est of the season Squadron E drop3ed a close decision to Squadron r-1 with 10 8 a s the final tally. rhe game was a tight affaii up ,o the last inning when the Flyers nrned the tide in their favor and mshed across the winning run. Several of the boys a r e getting b e low-down on the high flying P18's a t the Mobile Training Unit which is here for 10 days of in, ;ensive schooling on the Lightning 5ghter. The unit is well equipped with several mock-ups and should afford a wealth of information for anyone interested in the operation and maintenance of our twin-boom ?ursuits. For Sale Sgt. William Warren has a railroad ticket for sale-a one way job from here to Washington, D. C. Anyone contemplating a discharge might contact Warren and save limself a little cold cash in train fares. For some of us this Army life 1 s just one school after another. rhree weeks ago S. Sgt. "Gag" Sagliola was learning the ropes of motor maintenance and wound up with a truck driver's license. He had hardly recovered from this strenuous course when the "gag" found himself learning to be a soldier all over again-OJT. Returning from his basic tralning the sarge was informed that he was


to attend P-38 school. "Now I'm sweating out. San Diego!" was his reply when asked how he liked being a school boy. The boys who left on DS to the ATC a few weeks ago have returned-but not willingly. From all reports that deal is one that anyone would volunteer for-even if that is against AR No 1 . Wheels We have had word a s to the activities of two of Section "C"'s former wheels. S. Sgt. Ole Silverstrand, former boss of the welding shop, is operating his own place of business back home in Minnesota as a civilian, and Mr. Silverstrand's private enterprise is doing quite well for itself. Another exforman, S. Sgt. Clarence Gray, is now performing his duties in England with the 8th Air Force. Gray just added 12 more points to his score & when a daughter was born to h wife in Pennsylvania. T. Sgt. Raymond Day, test flight radio operator, takes the honors a s being Squadron E ' s first GI to b e released under the point system. Day has no immediate plans other than to take life easy for awhile and get acquainted with his n e w daughter. The welding shop is losing another good man. Cpl. George B e s s e is leaving us with San Francisco a s his destination. The corporal's red nos& and ready wit will be missed by those who knew him. George has been with us for 17 months. Little Jack Horner Necked Sue in the corner When in walked the girl's dd man. With a grin on their face They rushed from the place And finished in Jackie's sedan.
