Pfc. Gamblin Enroute Home

With the 28th Infantry Division in Assembly Command

          Pfc. Lewis G. Gamblin in enroute home from the European Theater of Operations with the veteran “Bloody Bucket” Division, which in eight months saw vicious combat from Normandy’s hedgerow to the Reich.

          Entering action July 30, 1944, at St. Lo, the “Bloody Bucket” men battled across Normandy, paraded through Paris, proceeded east through Belgium and Luxembourg, and smashed into the Siegfried Line September 11th – the first troops to enter Germany in strength.  On December 16, it caught the full force of Von Rundsted’s Ardennes offensive.  Quickly recuperating, the 28th moved south to help liberate Colmar and Alsace and drive to the Rhine.  Within a month, it was again at the Rhine near Coblenz.

          Pfc. Gamblin is a son of Mrs. Hattie Gamblin, of Suches, Union County, Georgia.  He holds the following decoration:  Combat Infantry Badge, Purple Heart Eto. Ribbon, with four Campaign Stars, and Good Conduct Ribbon.

          [The above Release reached The News too late for last week’s publication – Editor]


          The following was among the “holes” in the newspaper and I could only figure out most of it.  Perhaps some of the Haralson descendants can identify the son featured below:


……… pt. Haralson Promoted

………news to the many friends here of Capt. ………to know that he has been promoted to the………and has received his commission as such.

          ………the son of Col. And Mrs. Pat Haralson, of Blairsville, and one of Union County’s volunteers in the present war.

          Congratulations, Major Haralson.


(The following are letters sent to the editor of the North Georgia News, Ira Butt.  One of Union County’s many prominent citizens, Mr. Butt sent copies of the newspaper overseas to “our” boys to keep them up to date on what was going on in the mountains from where they came.)


North Africa, July 27 (1945)

Dear Mr. Butt:

          Here’s a few lines to say hello to you and everybody back home, also to let you know I am receiving The News and enjoying it.  It gives me ALL the home news.

          I hope everything in old Union is moving along fine.  Let me add a special hello to Mother, Dad and the homefolks.  And keep that paper coming this way.  It’s “the whole cheese!”

                                      Sylvan R. Owenby, S. 2/c, 93467 28

                                      U.S. Naval Supply Depot, Navy No. 147, Box F

                                      Care of Fleet Post Office, New York City

          Son of Zack and Cordie Owenby of Gum Log.


Okinawa, July 14

Hello Ira:

          Have got a few spare minutes and will give you a line or two.  I haven’t been receiving my paper here of late and am getting behind on the home news.  Maybe they’ll finally catch up with me for I’m sure you’re starting them over here.  And here’s hoping for there is nothing like The News to give us the news.

          Let me say hello to everybody in this one letter.

                                      Pfc. Ray Towery, Anti-Tank Co., 383rd Inft

                                      APO 96, Care of Post Master, San Francisco Calif.

[Ray, I am sending you by First-Class Mail a few back copies of the paper to kinder get you up-to-date on home news. Let me know if you get them. – Ira]

          Son of Mark and Lula Belle Towery of Lower Young Cane.


Somewhere In The Phillippines, July 19

Hello Mr. Butt:

          This will let you know I have safely landed overseas.  How is everything in dear old Union County?  It is plenty hot over here.

          I wish to say hello to all my Union County friends and remind them to take advantage of their Christian opportunities.  When I see and realize what is going on in the world, it makes me glad to know I was reared in a Christian home.  In my traveling about I have seen so much evil – drinking, cursing, and all kinds of corruptness, it makes me shudder.  The people need to get right with God.  There are so many who do not seem to realize the great love of their Creator who died on the Cross for our redemption.

          If the American people who are striking for higher wages today would just stop and think of their comforts at home as compared with that of the soldiers who are fighting day and night, facing death on battlefields for $50 a month, I believe they would realize they are well paid and should be content and happy.  They should go on their knees and thank God for their many blessings.

          When you are three thousand miles out on the ocean it is a comfort to know God is with you.  Let me urge that you pray and give thanks to God for your many blessings. 

          I will appreciate letters from any who will write me.  And Editor, please send paper to the address below.

                                      Pfc. Clyde Sullivan, R.C. 658, 4th R.D, 2nd Plt

                                      APO 703 Care of Post Master San Francisco Calif.

          Son of Berney and Florida Sullivan of Choestoe.



Dear Ira:

          I guess it’s about time I was letting you hear from me.  I am getting the paper ok now and sure am enjoying each copy.  It lets me hear from SO many of the boys and where they are and also “keeps me up to snuff” on home news.  I want to thank you for what you are doing for us soldier boys.  It means more than I can tell you.  Keep it coming.

          In closing, let me say hello to all the Union County service boys and everybody back home.

                                      Ralph C. Brooks, S. 2/c USNR

                                      1st Division, USS Samaritan

                                      Care of Fleet Post Office, San Francisco Calif.

          Does anyone know who this soldier is the son of?  




Dear Mr. and Mrs. Butts:

          A few lines to let you know I am still “around” and in the best of health.  I am getting the paper ok and enjoying it 100 percent, and I want to thank you both for your kindness to us soldier boys, for the home news is something we sure enjoy. 

          I have completed my three year term and still making the roll toward Victory.  We work 12 hour shifts and never know when Sunday co(mes) unless someone happens to tell us.

          Allow me t………Dad and my son, Odis. 

          This is one of the spots on the newspaper that was crumbled and is unreadable.  I could not see who the writer was.  Perhaps someone out there knows who this might be…if so, please let us know!

                                      APO…….San Francisco Calif.


A Poem From Germany

If only we’d move a little ways,

We’d be in France and see happier days.

But as things stand to this late date,

All we can do is sit and wait.

I sleep ‘til I can sleep no more;

I read ‘til it is just a chore.

I talk and walk ‘til there’s no enjoyment,

Just waiting here for redeployment.


                                       Pfc Eugene F. Nix, Co. B. 310th Inft.

                                       APO 78, Care of Post Master, New York City

          There are many Nix families in Union County but unable to figure out which family Eugene belongs to.
