A Flag Day Story

Sunday June 14, 2009 is flag day and this story seems very appropriate for that day

Look carefully at the B-17 and note how shot up it is - one engine dead, tail, horizontal stabilizer and nose shot up.. It was ready to fall out of the sky. (This is a painting done by an artist from the description of both pilots many years later.) Then realize that there is a German ME-109 fighter flying next to it. Now read the story below. I think you'll be surprised!!!

Charlie Brown was a B-17 Flying Fortress pilot with the 379th Bomber Group at Kimbolton, England . His B-17 was called 'Ye Old Pub' and was in a terrible state, having been hit by flak and fighters. The compass was damaged and they were flying deeper over enemy territory instead of heading home to Kimbolton. 

After flying the B-17 over an enemy airfield, a German pilot named Franz Stigler was ordered to take off and shoot down the B-17. When he got near the B-17, he could not believe his eyes. In his words, he 'had never seen a plane in such a bad state'. The tail and rear section was severely damaged, and the tail gunner wounded. The top gunner was all over the top of the fuselage.  The nose was smashed and there were holes everywhere. 
 

Despite having ammunition, Franz flew to the side of the B-17 and looked at Charlie Brown, the pilot. Brown was scared and struggling to control his damaged and blood-stained plane.

Aware that they had no idea where they were going, Franz waved at Charlie to turn 180 degrees. Franz escorted and guided the stricken plane to, and slightly over, the North Sea towards England . He then saluted Charlie Brown and turned away, back to Europe .  When Franz landed he told the CO that the plane had been shot down over the sea, and never told the truth to anybody. Charlie Brown and the remains of his crew told all at their briefing, but were ordered never to talk about it. 

More than 40 years later, Charlie Brown wanted to find the Luftwaffe pilot who saved the crew. After years of research, Franz was found. He had never talked about the incident, not even at post-war reunions.


(L-R) German Ace Franz Stigler, artist Ernie Boyett, and B-17 pilot Charlie Brown.

 

They met in the USA at a 379th Bomber Group reunion, together with 25 people who are alive now - all because Franz never fired his guns that day.
 
When asked why he didn't shoot them down, Stigler later said, "I didn't have the heart to finish those brave men.  I flew beside them for a long time.  They were trying desperately to get home and I was going to let them do that.  I could not have shot at them.  It would have been the same as shooting at a man in a parachute" 

Research shows that Charlie Brown lived in Seattle and Franz Stigler had moved to Vancouver, BC after the war. When they finally met, they discovered they had lived less than 200 miles apart for the past 50 years!



Both men died in 2008.

This was back in the days when there was honor in being a warrior. They proudly wore uniforms, and they didn't hide in ambush inside a mosque, or behind women and children, nor did they use mentally retarded women as suicide bombers to target and kill innocent civilians!!!

                HOW TIMES HAVE CHANGED !


A Flag Day Mystery

In a copyrighted article that appeared in the Port Huron Times Herald on May 30, 2009, the strange disappearance of flags from the sticks placed near graves of veterans was explained. Because the story was copyrighted and distributed via the Associated Press we decided to research the story independently.

First we called the Mount Hope Cemetery where the mystery took place and we were given two emergency numbers to call. One was a mobile phone which did not answer and the second was a number for The Holy Trinity Church. That phone number provided us with selections for reaching various offices within the church. Since we were calling on Sunday, none of the offices were answering their phones and we were asked to leave a message.

Picture of SquirrelTaking a different tack, we called a number of VFW and American Legion posts in the Port Huron area to check on the story. None of the people we talked to were willing to be quoted because they only had second hand knowledge. One Commander said that he would have to check with his attorney before allowing us to quote him.

The answer

to the mystery as reported by the Associated Press from an article printed in the Port Huron Times Herald on May 30, 2009 was that Ron Ceglareck the Superintendent of the Mount Hope Cemetery saw a squirrel tear the flag off of one of the sticks and carry it off to his or her nest.


The History Of Flag Day

The Fourth of July was traditionally celebrated as America's birthday, but the idea of an annual day specifically celebrating the Flag is believed to have first originated in 1885. BJ Cigrand, a schoolteacher, arranged for the pupils in the Fredonia, Wisconsin Public School, District 6, to observe June 14 (the 108th anniversary of the official adoption of The Stars and Stripes) as 'Flag Birthday'. In numerous magazines and newspaper articles and public addresses over the following years, Cigrand continued to enthusiastically advocate the observance of June 14 as 'Flag Birthday', or 'Flag Day'.

On June 14, 1889, George Balch, a kindergarten teacher in New York City, planned appropriate ceremonies for the children of his school, and his idea of observing Flag Day was later adopted by the State Board of Education of New York. On June 14, 1891, the Betsy Ross House in Philadelphia held a Flag Day celebration, and on June 14 of the following year, the New York Society of the Sons of the Revolution, celebrated Flag Day.

Following the suggestion of Colonel J Granville Leach (at the time historian of the Pennsylvania Society of the Sons of the Revolution), the Pennsylvania Society of Colonial Dames of America on April 25, 1893 adopted a resolution requesting the mayor of Philadelphia and all others in authority and all private citizens to display the Flag on June 14th. Leach went on to recommend that thereafter the day be known as 'Flag Day', and on that day, school children be assembled for appropriate exercises, with each child being given a small Flag.

Two weeks later on May 8th, the Board of Managers of the Pennsylvania Society of Sons of the Revolution unanimously endorsed the action of the Pennsylvania Society of Colonial Dames. As a result of the resolution, Dr. Edward Brooks, then Superintendent of Public Schools of Philadelphia, directed that Flag Day exercises be held on June 14, 1893 in Independence Square. School children were assembled, each carrying a small Flag, and patriotic songs were sung and addresses delivered.

In 1894, the governor of New York directed that on June 14 the Flag be displayed on all public buildings. With BJ Cigrand and Leroy Van Horn as the moving spirits, the Illinois organization, known as the American Flag Day Association, was organized for the purpose of promoting the holding of Flag Day exercises. On June 14th, 1894, under the auspices of this association, the first general public school children's celebration of Flag Day in Chicago was held in Douglas, Garfield, Humboldt, Lincoln, and Washington Parks, with more than 300,000 children participating.

Adults, too, participated in patriotic programs. Franklin K. Lane, Secretary of the Interior, delivered a 1914 Flag Day address in which he repeated words he said the flag had spoken to him that morning: "I am what you make me; nothing more. I swing before your eyes as a bright gleam of color, a symbol of yourself."

Inspired by these three decades of state and local celebrations, Flag Day - the anniversary of the Flag Resolution of 1777 - was officially established by the Proclamation of President Woodrow Wilson on May 30th, 1916. While Flag Day was celebrated in various communities for years after Wilson's proclamation, it was not until August 3rd, 1949, that President Truman signed an Act of Congress designating June 14th of each year as National Flag Day.

Yeoman Performance at the Jefferson Yacht Club

We were in attendance with the Sailing Singles Club when about 40 of us showed up for the "Dinner of the Month" at The Jefferson Yacht Club. Unfortunately, the outgoing club manager had not logged the event into the JYC's appointment book and they were not aware the large group was coming..

Thanks to the outstanding team work of the dining staff, led by brand new chef Clement Morais, Lisa Dobbs the new club manager, and especially by experienced waitress Anna and her helpers who were able to weather the storm, all of the Sailing Singles were served in good order]

Dear Peggy Jo,

Very often I attend dinner gatherings put on by various groups. Some of them social and others for business and I have observed that the organizers of the groups like to get everyone to one big table. I am sure that they feel that this is a way to be inclusive. But this practice does not work.

Sitting at a large table does not really include everyone. One can talk to the person on each side and to the people across from them but they are isolated from all the rest. If instead they sat at tables of four they could table-hop and meet more people. They could talk to the people at their table and they could also talk to the people at nearby tables.

Another benefit of separate tables is that the wait staff and kitchen staff are much more accustomed to serving individual tables . It is easier to get four meals together to be served at the same time rather than 20. The entire group does not have to be served at the same time. Separate tables also relieve the billing process

Please publish this in your newsletter so that group leaders can see how their efforts to be inclusive really cause isolation.

 

R.L.

DearR.L,,

We will publish your idea and we hope that anyone with opposing views or those with similar views will respond.

Peggy Jo
