Letters sent home from the troops, letters sent to the troops from home . . . ever since wars began the news to or from the battlefield reflected what was really happening. Here is a collection of war letters that cover our major wars, our ‘police actions,’ and our military expeditions.

Under the GI bill, he went to college and graduate school after the war. He lived in Europe through the 1950s and 1960s. A writer, professor, and traveller, he published 3 books of fiction. He also founded a magazine, First Person, that featured personal narratives, including letters and diaries.

"Myself and eight other Negro soldiers were on our way from Camp Claiborne, La., to the hospital here at Fort Huachuca, Arizona. ...We could not purchase a cup of coffee at any of the lunchrooms around there... As you know, Old Man Jim Crow rules. But that's not all; 11:30 a.m. about two dozen German prisoners of war, with two American guards, came to the station. They entered the lunchroom, sat at the tables, had their meals served, talked, smoked, in fact had quite a swell time. I stood on the outside looking on...

When the war ended, Spangler headed to the Philippines on a Navy hospital ship to bring back POWs. Then he started a private practice in Portland. Two years later, he returned to the service and finished out his career as a Navy doctor. When he retired, he went to Asia on a hospital ship, the Hope, and later became a prison doctor in San Luis Obispo. He took up running at age 67, and was an avid competitor until he died at the age of 95, racking up 85 national running records for various age groups and distances. Letter

The room was full of pregnant women with their husbands. The instructor said, "Ladies, remember that exercise is good for you. Walking is especially beneficial. It strengthens the pelvic muscles and will make delivery that much easier. Just pace yourself, make plenty of stops and try to stay on a soft surface like grass or a path."
"Gentlemen, remember -- you're in this together. It wouldn't hurt you to go walking with her. In fact, that shared experience would be good for you both." The room suddenly became very quiet as the men absorbed this information. After a few moments a man, name unknown, at the back of the room, slowly raised his hand.

A couple go for a meal at a Chinese restaurant and order the “Chicken Surprise”... the waiter brings the meal, served in a lidded cast iron pot.
Just as the wife is about to serve herself, the lid of the pot rises slightly and she briefly sees two beady little eyes looking around before the lid slams back down.
“Good grief, did you see that?” she asks her husband. He hadn’t, so she asks him to look in the pot. He reaches for it and again the lid rises, and he sees two little eyes looking around before it slams down. Rather perturbed, he calls the waiter over, explains what is happening, and demands an explanation.
“Please sir,” says the waiter, “what you order?” The husband replies, “Chicken Surprise”. “Ah! So solly,”says the waiter,“I bring you Peeking Duck .” How Do Court Reporters Keep Straight Faces?

When Duquette was repatriated, he'd lost 70 of his 170 pounds, had a stomach-length beard, and suffered from a number of diseases and ailments as a result of his ordeal. Duquette continued his career in the Air Force. He returned to Korea in 1998, to visit his son John, a lieutenant colonel in the Army who was stationed in Seoul. Letter

Escondido Police Chief Selected
Escondido City Manager Clay Phillips has announced that Police Captain Craig Carter has been promoted to the position of Police Chief effective immediately. His salary will be $160,550. The announcement came 10 months after longtime Escondido police Chief Jim Maher retired under circumstances the city refuses to explain.
Phillips stated, “The rigorous selection process we followed included highly qualified raters from cities in San Diego and Riverside Counties whose independent assessment confirmed my thinking. Craig has distinguished himself during his career with the Escondido Police Department. He will be an excellent Police Chief and will provide stability to the City’s and the Police Department’s working relationships with businesses, schools and community groups.” Carter has worked for the Escondido Police Department since 1992 when he was hired as a Police Officer Trainee after previously serving as a Reserve Police Officer. He has risen through the ranks serving as Police Officer until he was promoted to Sergeant in

1998. In January 2005 he was promoted to Lieutenant and then to the position of Police Captain in March 2013. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Bellevue University.
Commenting on the announcement, Police Officer Mike Garcia, President of the Escondido Police Officers Association said, “On behalf of the Board of Directors and the entire Association membership, I extend our most sincere congratulations to Craig Carter on his promotion to Chief of Police. We are very excited to work, not only with Chief Carter, but Captains Benton and Loarie as we lead the department forward into the future. As President of the Association, I firmly believe the community and the department will prosper under the professional leadership of Chief Carter and his team.” Mayor Sam Abed said, “Craig will continue our partnership with immigration and we will strengthen the checkpoints,”
Carter’s rapid rise through the ranks is impressive but has been marked by recent controversy. Carter and Captain Bob Benton were the two senior officers allegedly involved in wrongdoing that Maher reported to City Manager Phillips, yet Maher was the one “placed

on “administrative leave.”
Eventually, the purported text messages, allegedly exchanged by and between then-Captain Craig Carter and Captain Bob Benton, surfaced. Several inside sources from the police department have confirmed the authenticity of the text , which suggest elements of racism and discuss preferential treatment within the department and that were openly critical of Chief Maher. City officials, however, have adamantly refused to confirm or deny the existence of such text messages. Neither Carter or Captain Bob Benton have commented on the situation. A Carlsbad resident, Carter and his wife have been married for 25 years and they have three adult children.

Escondido city officials have declined an opportunity to sponsor The Amgen Tour of California cycling race — America’s version of the Tour de France — but Carlsbad might host the race instead.
as the final session, I got up and left about 20 minutes before the end of the session. Reason? I had heard the same speech about 15 times that day and was just a little tired of it, not to mention being bored out of my skull. With the mid-day session, I stuck around until we had voted on the resolutions, amendments, and elections . . . I was, after all, a delegate. But then I split.
The trip to Reno: Fantastic hotel (Silver Legacy), fantastic food (particularly the steakhouse known as Sterling's (in the Silver Legacy) and the omelet station at the Buffet Restaurant, also at the Legacy. Victor, the omelet chef whipped up such good omelets I had them three days in a row; the food and service at the convention center was superb. No complaints there at all.
Still, we saw very little of Reno, Lake Tahoe, etc. Too many scheduled
The Escondido City Council, noting a loss of more than $350,000 for last year’s sponsorship, and saw little positive return, opted to stay out of the race in 2014. Carlsbad officials, however, said they will submit a proposal to host the San Diego County leg of the eight-day race if some details related to financing and logistics can be resolved. This race gives cities national and international exposure, however whether that translates into local tourist and other dollars remains suspect.
In 2009 Escondido hosted more than 40,000 spectators in downtown Escondido; however, only about 15,000 showed up this year. Area merchants reported great disappointment after they had invested substantial sums in product, manpower, and promotion.
The race was likely marred this year because of a combination of an unusually hot day of 105 degrees and the inclination for viewers to stay home and watch it on tv . . . and the fact that the event was held on Mother’s Day when many potential visitors and other spectators had made alternate plans. Plans for Carlsbad are not yet final but officials plan on proceeding.

Lane, the Medical Equipment Sales Manager, who just happened to own a beautiful coon dog, named Sheba. Well, being a 5 month old pup, Sheba, like most pups, is the curious sort. While Joseph and his wife were busy, Sheba jumped up on the table and wolfed down a walnut muffin. Not the worst problem in the world. However, she also wolfed down some of Joseph’s wife, Elizabeth’s, heart medication. Big problem.
Joseph dashed next door and consulted with Dr. Sophia Padilla, of the Parkway Clinic. “Take a syringe, load it with 50 cc’s of hydrogen peroxide and pour the peroxide into the dog’s throat. That will induce vomiting.” Fortunately, Elizabeth is both a registered nurse and has been a paramedic for years. The hydrogen peroxide did it’s stuff. “It not only brought up the
heart medication but everything she had eaten for, it seemed, the past several weeks,” said Josepth. Sheba has apparently learned her lesson. No more jumping up on the table and no more gobbling up of medicines.
For dog lovers, Sheba is a Black Mouth Cur, a breed not well known on the west coast but very well known down south. They are bred for coon hunting, bear and boar hunts. Perhaps one of these days we can persuade Joseph to get us a photo of Sheba and we’ll introduce her to our readers. ••••• Many of our North County readers will remember, with great affection, both Dr. Bill Boyce and his wife, Lorraine.
Both are retired now. Bill is 94 and in generally good health . . . Lorraine is a few years younger (she told me her age but I never reveal a woman’s age) and she is just as bright and chipper
as she ever was. They have sold their home in the Escondido Country Club area and have moved into the Westmont Town Court in Escondido, just across from the downtown campus of the Palomar Medical Center. They have a very comfortable two bedroom apartment and Lorraine doesn’t have to cook or clean. They just relax, enjoy each other’s company, listen to music and read. Good to talk to two long time pals, both of whom have done so much for the community. Long after Bill retired as a surgeon, he was active locally in a variety of community services. He doesn’t attend his beloved Rotary meetings any longer but they named him as “Rotarian Emeritus” and he is welcome to come any time he feels up to it.
Lorraine is still active in community affairs but, recognizing her advancing years, has had to cut back a bit. She still shows that smiling face but just not in the community as often

As you described, people who witnessed and survived the Great Depression lived their lives with a sense of responsibility that bordered on obsession. They learned during the Depression to make do with what they had, and to make what they had last, since there was no guarantee that more would be available. In my generation, ‘make do with what I have’ has been replaced by ‘live beyond my means,’ for a majority of people. We have become very spoiled and unwilling to be responsible. We continually have to out-do not only previous generations, but each other as well! And in these times of ‘Global Economics’ and outsourcing, I can’t help but think this irresponsible behavior will have to stop at some point. If we learn anything from The Greatest Generation, it should be the benefits of Fiscal Responsibility.

In your 20's: Stop what you are doing. Shave, take a shower, blow dry your hair, brush your teeth, floss and put on clean clothes. Check yourself in the mirror and flex. Add a dab of your favorite cologne because you never know, you just might meet some hot chick while standing in the checkout lane. And you went to school with the pretty girl running the register.
In your 30's: Stop what you are doing, put on clean shorts and shirt. Change shoes. You married the hot chick so no need for much else. Wash your hands and comb your hair. Check yourself in the mirror. Still got it. Add a shot of your favorite cologne to cover the smell. The cute girl running the register is the kid sister to someone you went to school with.
In your 40's: Stop what you are doing. Put on a sweatshirt that is long enough to cover the hole in the crotch of your shorts. Put on different shoes and a hat. Wash your hands.

Check yourself in the mirror and you swear not to wear that shirt anymore because it makes you look fat. The Cutie running the register smiles when she sees you coming and you think you still have it.Then you remember the hat you have on is from Bubba's Bait & Beer Bar and it says, 'I Got Worms.'

The new trail l i n k i n g B r e n g l e Terrace Park in northeastern Vista with the citywide urban trail system is under construction and is designed to enhance and expand our city’s community green space. The new nature trail will begin on the southeastern corner of Brengle Terrace Park and progress along the southern tributary of Buena Vista Creek and will provide much needed riparian restoration and native tree establishment along the creek. Visitors to the park will be able to access the restored creek via the new nature path. Beginning in November, sever-
al hundred native trees and shrubs will be planted throughout the area, including alder, cottonwood, and sycamore. The plantings will be monitored to ensure proper establishment and some areas may be cordoned off during the plant established period so the plants will not be trampled. Informational signage along the trail will provide users with facts about the creek and its natural environment. The City was pleased to receive a $994,000 grant to fund the project.

When Your PC Needs Help Part 2
Last week we talked about software problems. Software problems and solutions are pretty much the same whether on a desktop or a notebook PC. There are, however; significant differences between desktop and laptop PCs in the cost and handling of hardware problems. Today we’ll cover desktops and leave notebooks until next week.
The hardware components that are most prone to failure are ones with moving parts. Hard drive, fans, power supplies and DVDs lead the list. When your PC shows no sign of life at all, it’s usually the power supply. The good news is that a power supply swap can usually be done while you wait and costs less
Local Students Win Robotics Competition
Escondido’s students return to campus with a championship title.
A team of students from Bear Valley Middle School robotics program, the BearBots, won first place in the regional USFIRST competition against student teams from Fallbrook, Carlsbad, Rancho Santa Fe and Poway. Two additional Bear Valley teams, the Rogue Robots and the Ursa Majors, also received awards.
USFIRST is a United States competition organized by the non-profit FIRST, For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. The competition emphasizes the importance of science, engineering, and technology programs in schools and promotes student leadership.
than $100. Fans, DVDs and even hard drives aren’t expensive to replace but when your hard drive fails, the labor cost of reinstalling and updating the operating system and drivers and then recovering files often exceeds the cost of the hard drive itself. Keeping your files backed up on a regular basis can save you money and anguish.
Components that don’t have moving parts rarely fail but CPUs and Video cards can fail if their cooling fans fail. Motherboards also have heat sensitive components that can fail or act up if the case ventilation isn’t adequate. Air circulation within the computer case is very important. “Heat sinks” are in surface-to-surface contact with heat sensitive components like the CPU. A fan forces air across the heat sink’s “radiator” and the hot air is expelled through the power supply and/or auxiliary case vent fans. If the case can’t breath properly because it is in an enclosed area or too close to a wall, heat can build up. Fan cages and heat sinks can become clogged with dust over time. Heat is the enemy of components. All components will eventually fail but their longevity is directly proportional to their exposure to heat. To prolong your PCs lifespan
This year’s theme was “senior solutions” and teams were asked to design projects that would improve the lives of seniors in our communities. Bear Valley’s BearBots won with their design for a sensor-controlled walker that lights up at night. The USFIRST competition provides motivation for schools to maintain competitive science and technology programs, which I believe are excellent opportunities for students to learn practical skills that prepare them for future studies in related fields.
Congratulations to the BearBots and all San Diego County teams.

TURN IT OFF when you aren’t using it. Yes we realize that some “experts” tell you that PCs should be left on 24/7. Don’t do it. You’ll shorten your PCs lifespan and put an extra $100 a year in SDG&E’s pocket. Every year or so you should “dust” your PC. That means taking the side of and blowing the dust off heat sinks vents and fans. If you can’t do it yourself, bring it in and we’ll do it for you, no charge.
Motherboards on PCs from Dell and HP are particularly heat sensitive. Dell and HP are constantly pressuring the offshore companies that make their PCs for lower pricing. Lower cost
components mean lower quality and one conspicuous result has been the problem we call “HP Leprosy.” The capacitors on motherboards swell and begin leaking electrolyte from the top and bottom. A high percentage of Dell and HP PCs exhibit “Leprosy” after a few thousand hours running. It is especially important to shut these PCs down when not in use and to keep them dust free and cool. Here at the shop we are gearing up for some back to school specials with new and used desktops and laptops. Be sure and check us out before you buy.

The Pastor Says . . .
One survey indicated that 85% of what you do – anyone could do (i.e. sending emails, facebooking, etc). 10% of what you do – someone could do with little training. Only 5% of what you do only you can do... loving your spouse, a parent to your children, exercising your body, or engaging in activity that bring you closer to God. There is no delegating these things.
Pastor Sam Brumit M316 Church, San Marcos Time Management
You never feel like there is enough of it; it’s always running out; you don’t have it and it often slips away. Time. You would think that with all the gadgets we have these days; it would save us time. We have instant coffee, instant messaging, instant replay, etc. but it seems like we have less time than ever. If anyone should have been short on time - it was Jesus. He had just three years to build His ministry and He had no money, no staff (except for a group of bickering untrained followers) and lots of opposition. And did I mention that people wanted to assassinate Him? Yet He remained calm, clear and always in His Father’s will.
Ephesians 5:15-16 says “Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil.” The Greek word used for time is kairos which means an “opportune time.” It’s a slice of time that you must make the most of before it slips away. Imagine if you, like Jesus, used your time on earth to do God’s will. Managing time like He did means spending time in prayer, communicating with God and also living life with rest and balance. If you do this, you can echo His words in John 17: 4 when He said “I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do”. If you have time, come and visit us at Mission 316 Church on Sundays @ 9:45 a.m. at 111 Richmar Avenue in San Marcos.
