MUCH MORE THAN ‘THREE HOTS AND A COT’

Military career provided security and the ability to give back for Gary Forsey and his wife, Marie he Korean War was just ending when Gary Forsey decided to join the military. He’d grown up in Newfoundland, Canada, where his father was a teacher, and moved to New York as a young man to live with his grandmother. Looking to get out on his own, Forsey enlisted at the age of 19.

Besides offering a career path, the military provided some welcome security in life — like steady meals and a place to sleep. It was “three hots and a cot,” he said during a recent interview. Military service ended up being much more than that, of course. Forsey, who served nine years in the U.S. Air Force and another 13 years in the Army, ended up meeting his future

SERVING HIS COUNTRY THROUGH TWO MAJOR WARS Wendell Wendt of Lewiston was in both World War II and Korea

L

By KERRI SANDAINE of the Tribune

ong before the modernday era of cellphones and computers, military couples relied on the U.S. Postal Service to stay in touch during World War II and the Korean War. Wendell and Eva Wendt, of Lewiston, exchanged hundreds of letters while he was stationed overseas during three separate stints serving his country.

“I never spoke to him for two years,” Eva said. “I wrote him a letter every day except Saturday night because the mail didn’t go out on Sunday. While he was gone, I lived with my mom and dad in Wisconsin.” Wendell, 91, now resides at the Idaho Veterans Home in Lewiston, but Eva, 87, visits him on a daily basis and brings him home every Sunday for a homecooked dinner.

“He likes my fried chicken,” she said with a smile. Wendell grew up in Poy Sippi, Wisc., where he spent his childhood hunting squirrels. He was delivering milk before he got a driver’s license and enlisted in the U.S. Army at the age of 17. “There was a war going on,” he said. “I think serving in the armed forces is a good deal.” In 1944 when he joined the war effort, Wendell was stationed on a dry dock that repaired ships. He served as a carpenter’s mate, achieving the rank of petty ofcer rst class.

“I know it took us 33 days to get over there,” he said. “We had to be towed.” In between trips overseas, he met and married Eva, and then enlisted in the Navy Reserves. He was among the rst to be called back during the Korean War and served 30 months in Japan. Eva and the couple’s two oldest children spent a year in Japan during his nal tour. Wendell had 200 Japanese residents working for him on the base, mostly carpenters, masons and painters. “On Christmas, each one

SALUTE brought us a quart of beer,” Eva said. “We had over 200 bottles. Isn’t that something? We had a lot of company, and it didn’t last long.” After three years in Japan, Wendell left the military and returned to Wisconsin with his growing family. He and Eva raised four kids, Darwyn, Douglas, Henry and Linda, who died last year of a rare cancer. In 1955, the Wendt family moved to Idaho, where Wendell worked at a sawmill in St. Maries before settling in Lewiston in 1960. He was a millwright at Potlatch Corp. for nearly 30 years, before retiring in 1989.

Wendell and Eva enjoyed hunting, shing, camping and four-wheeling during their younger years. They also volunteered at the Veterans Home canteen for a decade and belong to two local veterans organizations. They’ve been members of Grace Lutheran Church in Lewiston since the early ‘60s. When asked what he would say to young people considering military service, Wendell said he highly recommends it. “They should serve their country, if they can.”

The History of Veterans Day Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor the end of World War I, which officially took place on November 11, 1918. In legislation that was passed in 1938, November 11 was “dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be hereafter celebrated and known as ‘Armistice Day.’” As such, this new legal holiday honored World War I veterans. In 1954, after having been through both World War II and the Korean War, the 83rd U.S. Congress -- at the urging of the veterans service organizations -- amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word “Armistice” and inserting the word “Veterans.” With the approval of this legislation on June 1, 1954, Nov. 11 Kermit Malcom says goodbye to became a day to honor American one of his daughters, 1945. veterans of all wars.

While the debts to service members may never be the kind that can be repaid in full, paying tribute to veterans, on Veterans Day and throughout the year, can be a great way to show them just how much their efforts are appreciated.

VETERANS DAY BEGINS WITH ARMISTICE DAY

Veterans Day is a byproduct of the end of World War I, when Germany and the Allied Nations signed the Treaty of Versailles, formally ceasing ghting and establishing terms of peace. On November 11, 1919, the rst anniversary of the signing of the treaty, the rst Armistice Day events were held. Armistice Day was initially a legal holiday to honor the end of World War I only, states History.com. The

United States Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and November 11 became a national holiday starting in 1938. However, in 1954, after the country had been embroiled in both World War II and the Korean War, Congress amended the Act of 1938 by renaming the commemoration “Veterans Day” to honor veterans of all wars.

VETERANS DAY IN OCTOBER?

According to Military.com,

for a short time, thanks to the Uniform Holiday Bill, which in 1968 established three-day weekends for federal employees by celebrating national holidays on Mondays, Veterans Day was moved to the fourth Monday of October — the rst being October 25, 1971. However, many people did not agree with this decision, continuing to honor the holiday on the original date. In 1975, President Gerald Ford signed a new law that returned Veterans Day to November 11 beginning in 1978. Since then,

HOW MEMORIAL DAY AND VETERANS DAY DIFFER FROM EACH OTHER

emorial Day and Veterans Day each honor the military, though the two holidays are not the same. Memorial Day, which is celebrated annually on the last Monday in May, honors the brave men and women who lost their lives while serving in the American military. Many communities

host memorial ceremonies honoring their fallen soldiers on Memorial Day, ensuring such soldiers’ bravery and sacrifices are never forgotten. While many people now view Memorial Day weekend as the unofficial start of summer, the weekend should not be celebrated without also pausing to reflect on and recognize the military personnel who lost their lives

in defense of freedom and the American way of life. Veterans Day is celebrated annually on November 11 and recognizes all men and women who have served in the military. Veterans Day coincides with Remembrance Day, which is a celebrated by the Commonwealth of Nations, an association of 53 member states with connections to the British Empire.

Latah Credit Union

Though Veterans Day and Remembrance Day are each celebrated on November 11, the latter recognizes armed forces members who died in the line of duty, making it more similar to Memorial Day than Veterans Day. It’s not uncommon for people to recognize fallen soldiers on Veterans Day, but many use the holiday to express their appreciation to existing veterans.

Davis' obituary in the New York Times noted: "He was ostracized at West Point and then was barred from commanding white troops and turned away from segregated ofcers' clubs in the war years." While a cadet, Davis had sought to join the Army Air Corps but was rejected because segregationist policies of the time designated the Air Corps as whites-only.

In 1947, Davis transferred to the newly created Air Force and was tapped by President Harry S. Truman to help draft the service's desegregation plan. Davis' life served as an example of the power of perseverance, courage, character and extraordinary competence, Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David L. Goldfein said at the naming ceremony.

Some posters emphasized security, the most iconic being the poster by artist Seymour R. Goff depicting a sinking ship and captioned: "Loose Lips Might Sink Ships." Perhaps the most famous artist to produce a poster was Norman Rockwell, who illustrated a soldier manning a gun, captioned: "Let’s Give Him Enough and On Time." The message was aimed at Americans on the home front who were encouraged to give to the war effort and to scale back consumption so that factories could prioritize arms production.

Although Rockwell painted some posters, he was much better known for illustrating Saturday Evening Post magazine covers in support of the war effort. Many posters depicted the enemy as menacing. One striking poster illustrates a missile with USA stamped on the n and "MORE PRODUCTION" written on the body. Its target was a swastika set in the red circle of Japan's Rising Sun ag.

Marie’s parents had moved there, and they got married there in 1969. Around that same time, Gary served the rst of his two tours in Vietnam.

He never talked about his wartime service much, but he was awarded two Bronze Stars, as well as a Purple Heart after being wounded in a mortar attack. Forsey completed his second tour of duty in Vietnam in 1972; he retired from the Army in 1974. He and Marie both became teachers; she taught special education students in Emmett during the week, returning to Lewiston on weekends, while Gary taught math and sciences in Lapwai and Elk River, and later at the Tammany Alternative Center in Lewiston. The Forseys had four

sons, two of whom also served in the military. “I think everyone should serve at least two years,” said Gary, who is now 85 years old. “You grow up a little bit. I learned to be tolerant of other people.” Marie, who was taught that people should always give back, said military service is an opportunity to do just that. “It’s not only a chance to become more mature, but you get the opportunity to help your country and people around the world,” she said.

The soldiers had to withstand the cold in canvas tents that used tiny diesel oil-fueled stoves as their only source of heat. It wasn’t all misery all the time, however.
