VETERAN'S DAY - NOVEMBER 11TH - GOLDEN
On Veteran's Day, Monday, November 11th, from 5:00 to 9:00 pm, all 400+ Golden Corral restaurants spanning 39 states will offer veterans and retired and active duty military members a free dine-in dinner buffet plus beverage. The offer includes members of the Reserves and the National Guard. To receive the free dine-in buffet, military guests should state their military status when coming through the ordering line the night of the event. This is the second year in a row that Golden Corral and the Disabled American Veterans have joined forces nationwide to honor military members and retirees. This year, retired Army General Norman Schwarzkopf is supporting Military Appreciation Night through a public service announcement, which encourages veterans and active duty military to participate and be recognized for their sacrifice and dedication to protecting our nation's freedom size=2><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

OUR FLAG INFORMATION sent to me by Mary Norman, wife of Roy Norman Do you know that at military funerals, the 21 gun salute stands for the sum of the numbers in the year 1776?
Have you ever noticed the honor guard pays meticulous attention to correctly folding the American flag 13 times? You probably thought it was to symbolize the original 13 colonies, but we learn something new every day!
size=2> The 1st fold of our flag is a symbol of life.
The 2nd fold is a symbol of our belief in eternal life. The 3rd fold is made in honor and remembrance of the veterans departing our ranks who gave a portion of their lives for the defense of our country to attain peace throughout the world. The 4th fold represents our weaker nature, for as American citizens trusting in God, it is to Him we turn in times of peace as well as in time of war for His divine guidance.
size=2> The 5th fold is a tribute to our country, for in the words of Stephen Decaur, "Our Country, in dealing with other countries, may she always be right; but it is still our country, right or wrong.
The 6th fold is for where our hearts lie. It is with our heart that We pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States Of America, and the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.
The 7th fold is a tribute to our Armed Forces, for it is through the Armed Forces that we protect our country and our flag against all her enemies, whether they be found within or without the boundaries of our republic.
size=2> The 8th fold is a tribute to the one who entered into the valley of the shadow of death, that we might see the light of day.
The 9th fold is a tribute to womanhood, and Mothers. For it has been through their faith, their love, loyalty and devotion that the character of the men and women who have made this country great has been molded.
size=2> The 10th fold is a tribute to the father, for he, too, has given his sons and daughters for the defense of our country since they were first born.
The 11th fold represents the lower portion of the seal of King David and King Solomon and glorifies in the Hebrews' eyes, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
The 12th fold represents an emblem of eternity and glorifies, in the Christians' eyes, God the Father, the Son and Holy Spirit.
size=2> The 13th fold, or when the flag is completely folded, the stars are uppermost reminding us of our nation's motto, "In God We Trust."
After the flag is completely folded and tucked in, it takes on the appearance of a cocked hat, ever reminding us of the soldiers who served under General George Washington, and the Sailors and Marines who served under Captain John Paul Jones, who were followed by their comrades and shipmates in the Armed Forces of the United States, preserving for us the rights, privileges and freedoms we enjoy today.
There are some traditions and ways of doing things that have deep meaning. In the future, you'll see flags folded and now you will know why.

love and all others who love the symbol of "Liberty and
DOES ANYONE KNOW THE ORIGIN OF THE DET 27 PATCH? COMROE, Mike E4 059 Det 27, 61-62, (Jane), 205 Pinetown Rd., Audubon, PA 19403,610-666-7402, color=#000000>firstname.lastname@example.org - Merahaba Elder: I have a question that I've wanted to ask you for a long time. So here goes...what is the story behind the Det 27 patch with the Turk riding backwards? This must have been designed after my time in Turkey, and since no one ever asked about it, I assumed everyone knew but me. Say hello to Patty for me. Mike [I'm not sure, but I believe that it was designed from a Turkish postcard. Does anyone know who originated it? If so, tell us the story. Thanks- - -gH ***********The Det 27 patch shows Nasreddin Hoca (pronounced HO-ja) riding backwards so he could teach his followers as he traveled around Turkey. At least that's what I remember.Gary Dunnam >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I used glue to hold a lot of them in and it bled through. I'd appreciate getting them back in the spring but thought you might not have seen all of these. We are heading west on 31 October 2002. Been a busy summer and I know you have been busy with the DOOL and the reunion. I'll contact you when I get back in the spring and retrieve the album and we can say hello in person. Good luck and have a good winter and happy holidays and stay healthy. Take care.Ed <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

ALLEN, Billy F., DOB: 1944, E4-E5, 05H (op sign FA), Det 27 & 4-4, MY66-JL69, (Juanelle), PO BX 596 Commerce, GA 30529, email@example.com I've had Billy Allen's address for a long time, but could never connect until 2 November 2002 after Gary Dunnam informed that Billy could be found on e-bay and was still living in Commerce, GA. Billy reminded me that he had attended the 7th Army NCO Academy and that the drill instructors there were the finest NCO's that he'd ever met. Billy was being groomed to be a career 05H soldier in the ASA, but it was not to be. He enlisted for 4 years and got a 29d early out. It took him 10 months to make E-4 and 2y2m to make E-5 (hardstripe). During his TOUR of DUTY at Det 27 and 4-4 he copied RJDY 00101 and RMCY 00117 (the 104th Guards Airborne Division, stationed in the Transcaucasus Military District) which were two of the hardest for a ditty-bopper to copy because of their many unique characteristics, etc. It is his opinion that the dashing Scotty Sowers (Det 27) was one of the most gifted 05H's that he had the pleasure of working with. Hello Elder, -(Seems truly odd to not call you Sergeant.) I checked the http://dool-1.tripod.com site immediately upon finishing our conversation on 2 Nov 2--2. You've done a fine job; I commend you for your work as well as the result. You may recall I said I have little recall of the later arrivals at Karamursel, so I regret say that with the exception of the tall fellow in the middle I am unable to identify any of the newly promoted SP-4's. The soldier in the middle is indeed Bryant Hunter. A rather quiet person, he was somewhat reserved and very polite. He had attended Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA, where I believe he had taken a degree in math-ematics, and since I was from Atlanta we readily struck up a friendship. We were both fond of billiards, and I recall pleasant episodes at the pool table in the dayroom. One of the best aspects of pool is the more or less "intimate" nature of it; in-depth conversation is possible.Bryant and I compared notes on a variety of subjects at those times. I respected both his demeanor as well as his intellect. Our pool games tended to last a good while, sometimes several hours, and we would often adjourn to the mess hall for a meal followed by drinks at the club. The conversation was always lively and stimulating. I enjoyed his company immensely. It was a pleasure speaking with you yesterday. It was great fun to reflect on some of the names that came to mind, people I had not thought of in many years. Such things are always beneficial! Memory and reflection, especially when shared with a comrade, are in my opinion crucial to life well lived. Best Regards, Billy

Pete was extremely pleased that I called. He has kept in touch with Vic Barsh only. Pete says that the FINEST memories of his youth are of his TOUR of DUTY at Çerkezhöyük, Turkey (Manzarali Station). He remembers departing on Xmas day 1965 via a van with Vic Barsh and Phil Holmes for the ride to the airport. As they left the front gate - he looked back at the antenna field and told himself that he was going to remember those antenna's for the rest of his life. After Turkey, Pete went to OCS, but washed out and then went back to Detroit where he's been ever since. He relates that for 30+ years he was hooked on heroin and coccaine, but is clean now. In fact, Pete was saved in 1991 and is now referred to as Elder Calvin Gunn and is the Associate Pastor of the Church of God in Christ (COGIC) in the Detroit area. At Manzarali he was a member of the Manzarali Mauler All-Star Softball, Basketball and Flag Football Teams. He remembers Skip Boone, John Lampe and especially Jimmy Hatmaker who also was a 3-Sport Star at Manzarali. His wife has e-mail, but he couldn't remember the address. When informed on the 2003 reunion he said that he would be there as the ASA people were the BEST that he's ever met and is eager to exchange correspondence with anyone who knew him at Manzarali. I gave him the website for the DAYS OF OUR LIVES and he promised to send me his BIO and photo's from his scrapbook in the near future. He is presently recovering from a major heart by-pass operation.

Spent more on film than all other expenses combined. Cubuk Dam and city tour. ACT also sponsored tours of Ankara. On this one, you could go to the top of the Citadel. To reach it, one had to go through a private home - arranged by the tour guide. Our lady guide was very informative, pointing out all the sites and the history thereof. At one point on the tour bus, we were on the street between Ulus and Altindag, and one GI pointed over to the "Big K" and asked "What's that building?" No response! Isn't this all great to look back upon? Daryl

For the Mauler's bowling team, it was a week of disappointment, frustration, and utter amazement, however for two members of the team these emotions were short lived. The tournament opened with the team event being swept by the Adana team with a 5461 total pin fall, followed closely by the Cigli-Izmir Twins, who finished in 2nd place with a 5400 total.

The club finished with a near-perfect record. Captain Larry Kupp lead the league in assists, while center Kerry King win the circuit's rebounding title. Most of their scoring punch was provided by forward Ron Zebbs, a short-shooting corner man, and Andy Wills, a 6'4" rebounder who joined the team late in the season. The basketball championship was Hq's second straight intramural victory; they won the volleyball playoff last month. The complete team roster included Dale Theriault, Burnis Bobbitt, Tim Kohl- meyer, Andy Wills, Kerry King, Ron Zebbs, Bill Sherman, Ray Gomez, John Bauden-distel, Dave Kraft and captain Larry Kupp. Hq's 1 was undoubtedly the most proficient team in the league, relying primarily on fast breaks and tenacious rebound- ing. With everyone on the team returning, this team may spell trouble for oponents when the Manzarali summer basketball league swings into operation! Scoring Statistics: Trick one's Bernie Brantley, a 6'3" high-jumping forward, captured the scoring championship with a total of 198 points in this spring's intramural basket-ball League. Don Watts, of Com Center, finished second (190 points) and Harry Wilson of Hq's 2, finished third (174 points). The rebounding title went to Kerry King (150) and Larry Kupp fed the most players to win the assist award (58). Hq's Company's Dale Theriault won the dubious honor of having committed the most fouls.

THE MANZARALI MAULER - November 1964, front page MANZARALI N.C.O. WIVES NEWS (A NEW COLUMN) The Manzarali NCO Wives Club is a relatively new club organized on this post. Our ultimate goal and purpose is to promote social and useful activities for the community. Through the efforts of our NCO Wives, we have almost reached the 100% membership mark of wives residing on post. Our club would like to extend a cordial welcome to all dependant wives of enlisted personnel stationed at or attached to Site 23 to join our club. One of the most rewarding and useful projects is the clubs household pantry. This is composed of everything from silverware to an ironing board. These items are loaned to outgoind personnel and new comers whose household goods are shipped home or haven't arrived. Our Hospitality Chairman has donated a spare room to store these items. Officers of the Club are as follows: President: Mrs Mary Lamb. Honorary President: Mrs Dennis L. Barton. Secretary: Mrs Martha Morgan. Treasurer: Mrs Sue Vacek. On September 14th, 1964, the NCO Wives held a do-it yourself fashion show. The ladies participating made their own fashions. Awarded prizes were Millie Morrison, Eleanor Kidle and Ethel Crusse. Two of our projects that are currently in progress are a Barbie and Ken Doll Set Raffle, and a Christmas Cards from Turkey sale. The dolls and their ward-robes will be raffled off at the NCO Club November 5th. Tickets are on sale in the NCO Club at 50 cents each and a winner need not be present to win. We have some beautiful Christmas Cards, with two typical Turkish scenes. The package contains fifteen cards with envelopes for only $1.25. Anyone who desires to buy a package should contact any member of our club. Our members would also like to welcome all newly arrived enlisted wives and extend to them a warm invitation to our club. [A photo with the caption "Manzarali NCO Wives hold fashion show. Pictured left to right Mary Lamb, Ethel Crusse, Millie Morrison, Jo Ann Duffer and Eleanor Kidle" was underneath the photo. I've scanned the photo and will include it in the 2002 Memory Book if any of them are found as NONE of the above mentioned NCO Wives and their husbands have been found. Anyone know their whereabouts?]
