Memories of Midway

Local survivor of the Battle of Midway shares his story By DENNIS CONNOLLY

Whidbey Crosswind

During a change of command ceremony at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island in March, outgoing commander of electronic Attack Wing, US Pacific Fleet, Capt. Thomas Slais, Jr. spoke to a World II veteran in the audience. Harry Ferrier stood and acknowledged Slais’ words. “Harry, thank you for your exemplary honor, courage and commitment in service to our great nation and for the strength your example gives to all who still wear the uniform today.” Ferrier was honored and a little embarrassed being in the front row with a crowd of high ranking officers, but he was also very deserving of Slais’ words. As a 17-year-old radioman/gunner, he flew in a TBF Avenger in the Battle of Midway on June 4, 1942. Not only was it the most decisive naval battle of World War II, it spelled an end for Japanese control of the Pacific Ocean.

Team Whidbey comes to the rescue Volunteers band together to help those in need By DENNIS CONNOLLY

Whidbey Crosswind

A group of volunteers is quietly working to make things better for people on Whidbey Island. Team Whidbey is a group of sailors and friends who volunteer during their off-duty hours to help those who express a need. They come from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, Naval Station Everett and the civilian world. They are not affiliated with a base in any way. MA1 Samuel Gunnings, MA1 Brian Booth and MA2 Kimberly Brown took a few minutes to explain what they do and who they’ve helped since starting in January. Their projects have included a food drive for Help House in Oak Harbor, construction work with Habitat for Humanity, refurbishing the Oak Harbor Elementary School’s track and helping to set up and tear down at the Oak Harbor March of Dimes event at City Beach Park in March. Last weekend they pitched in to help Bill Ethridge, a World War II Air Force veteran in Coupeville. A friend knew Ethridge wanted some planters built, so he told Gerald

Psannenstiel of Veterans Affairs, who got in touch with Booth and Gunnnings. Ethridge needed vegetable planter boxes around his green house. He also needed to re-shingle his shed roof. Team Whidbey did it all. Booth went to Ethridge’s house to survey his supplies and made a list of what was needed. They don’t buy materials but they supply all the labor. Brown said there were lots of reasons they volunteer with Team Whidbey. “I like giving back to the community. It a productive way to spend my time,” she said. Gunnings, said Booth, is the leader of the group and always had some idea for helping. Booth had another reason for helping. “We do more than just our daily jobs,” Booth said. “And Team Whidbey makes us feel like we are part of something bigger than ourselves.” Gunnings said the list of people to help is getting bigger and volunteers are welcome. The rewards are great too, according to Gunnings. “It really helps when you do something for someone

who can’t do for themselves,” he said. “That’s what really makes you feel good.” Ethridge also liked the results of what Team Whidbey was doing Saturday. “I think it’s great. I really do,” Ethridge said.

Work begins on new Navy Federal building By Kathy Reed

Whidbey Crosswind

Construction has begun on a new Navy Federal Credit Union building along Highway 20 in Oak Harbor. The new facility will feature a drive thru. KATHY REED/WHIDBEY CROSSWIND

One truck leaves and another immediately takes its place as construction crews hauled dirt last week from the site of what will be the new Navy Federal Credit Union in Oak Harbor. Crews pulled down the old two-story brown building between Arby’s and Coldwell Banker Koetje Real Estate on Highway 20 last week in preparation for construction of a new, free-standing Navy Federal building. “The new building will offer drivethru service, something our members have missed at our current location,” said Vicki Archer, regional manager for the

Northwest region of Navy Federal. “The addition of the drive thru is going to be a bonus for everyone.” The physical layout of the new facility may be slightly smaller than the current branch, but Archer said the new configuration will be more efficient. “They will see some differences, but the different set up will enable us to better service our members,” she said. While an exact completion date is unknown at this point, Archer said they hope to be moved into the new building by the end of the year. The present Navy Federal branch opened in 1998 and services nearly 18,000 people in the Oak Harbor area.

Tolkien fans will march to help Wounded Warriors Hobbits and elves to roam during annual festival By KATHY REED

Whidbey Crosswind

There will be some interesting characters marching in the Holland Happening parade next week in Oak Harbor, and we do mean interesting. You’ll see elves and hobbits and all manner of characters from the pages of JRR Tolkien’s Middleearth books come to life, but it’s all for a good cause. “It’s going to be a nerd’s dream,” laughed Cara Gabelein, one of this year’s participants.

Get Involved: For information or to learn how to participate in Ring Quest, contact Clairann Haney at 679-3053. “Pretty much all the main characters from Tolkien’s books will be marching. We have a big huge Treebeard, elves, hobbits – everything you can think of,” she said. Ring Quest is the theme for this year’s fundraiser, organized by Clairann Haney, owner of Soul Liberty Publishing and Ministries in Oak Harbor. “I’ve collected a group of younger adults who want to get out there and do something, but they don’t have hundreds of dollars to donate,” Haney said. “So, they give their time and donate supplies.” Because everything is donation-based, all money from Ring Quest will go

Fans of the work of author JRR Tolkien’s books and the movies based on them will roam the streets of Oak Harbor during Holland Happening to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. Ring Quest, as the event is called this year, will feature volunteers dressed as characters from the Middle-earth series. Children can go on their own quest as well. PHOTO COURTESY OF CALEX HANEY to the Wounded Warrior Project. “Everything we collect goes to the charity,” said Haney, who has participated in Holland Happening for about eight years, with a different movie or story theme each year. There will be a booth set up at the Holland Happening street fair where people can have pictures taken with their favorite character and characters will also wander the carnival grounds. Children will be able to participate in their own Ring Quest as well. There will be three different riddles for kids to figure out. If they solve the riddle,

they collect a ring. “I love seeing people come out and be like ‘Oh my gosh, I love “Lord of the Rings!”’ When we tell them we’re doing it for charity, they just get that much more excited.” Gabelein said. “Besides, who doesn’t love hobbits?”

EASTER | FROM PAGE 1 there is no cost to attend. Anyone interested can bring a dish to share at the potluck. Children age 12 and under can participate in the Easter egg hunt, which is expected to begin at approximately 1 p.m. Founded at Rocky Point on Easter Sunday, 1971, the association is a social, nonprofit organization. A great many members are active duty or retired military. “They’re the ones that keep it going,” said president Aida Martin, whose father, Bert Letrondo, was the association’s founder. Martin’s father, who died last year, retired from the Navy in 1967. He continued to work at NAS Whidbey as a liaison officer until retiring again in 1987. During his time as a liaison officer, Letrondo noticed there were many

Crosswind flying off rack I’ve thanked our readers already for making the launch of Whidbey Crosswind so successful. I was presented with information this week which makes me want to say thank you all over again. You are making the Crosswind a hit. Each week we print just over 7,100 copies. Some of them are mailed directly, but most are put out on racks across Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, Oak Harbor and Coupeville. Nearly all of these papers are disappearing from the racks because you’re reading them! Our return rate last week was just six percent. In the newspaper business, that’s phenomenal. Our circulation manager, Lynette Reeff, had this to say: KATHY “We can’t keep (the papers) REED stocked,” she said. “I’m hoping our publisher, Marcia VanDyke, will up our press runs because we’re out. We have no more for restock.” “They’re flying out of the boxes,” agreed Diane Smothers, circulation assistant. According to Diane, we have 10 distribution points on NAS Whidbey. The commissary alone gets 550 copies each week, and they go fast. We have 32 distribution points in Oak Harbor, 14 in Coupeville, and next month we’ll be setting up distribution points throughout Anacortes for our military families there. Thank you for reading the Crosswind! Thank you for submitting your ideas – I encourage you to keep them coming to me at We knew when we started this paper there was room to tell stories of not just our military, but our military spouses, civilian employees, our children and our retirees. I hope you’ll allow us to keep sharing your stories, because we love telling them. –Kathy Reed, editor

“An officer asked me to collect my squadron’s effects so they could be sent home. ”

“On June 4, a Marine climbed up on our wing and told Earnest that an enemy force was picked up heading for Midway, about 150 miles out,” said Ferrier.

– Harry Ferrier

The Beginning The six TBF’s formed up and headed for the enemy position. After an hour, the pilot reported seeing many enemy ships on the horizon. They opened the bomb bay doors and immediately they were under attack. The bullets hitting the plane sounded like hail hitting a metal roof, Ferrier said. The turret gunner, Manning, opened up. “He fired a couple rounds from his 50-cal machine gun, then stopped,” Ferrier said. Ferrier was down below, manning a 30-calibur machine gun. He looked up and back, and knew immediately that Manning was dead, hanging in his harness and bleeding down on him. The tail wheel

came down because the hydraulics were hit and he couldn’t fire his gun. Ferrier got hit in the left wrist, then passed out from a head wound. With no hydraulics, the pilot was struggling with the airplane. He dropped the bomb and discovered the trim tab system

worked. He could fly the plane. When Ferrier came to he asked if he could climb up behind the pilot. The answer was yes. The pilot’s instruments, including magnetic compass and hydraulics were shot out. He flew by dead reckoning – using the

sun as a guide, then black smoke from the bombing to get back to Midway Atoll. Earnest released the main landing gear by the emergency handle but the starboard wheel did not come down. After two approaches he landed, bouncing and skidding off the runway. The two VT-8 survivors were back. “Fifteen flew off the Hornet and 15 were shot down,” Ferrier said. “One guy was picked up alive in the ocean the next day.”

Victory Back at sea the Japanese were winning. Of 51 American, torpedo-carrying, attacking airplanes, just seven made it back, not a single torpedo scored among them. Then, when the last of the torpedo planes were destroyed, the Navy dive bombers arrived, 15-thousand feet up. The Japanese had been busy down low with the American torpedo bombers and were also busy on their carrier’s decks changing bombs on their planes when the dive

bombers hit. Three Japanese carriers were sunk within the hour and a fourth carrier was sunk that afternoon. All four of the sunken carriers had been part of the attack on Pearl Harbor. No one knew it then but the Japanese were permanently crippled and the Pacific was no longer their domain.

Alone On Midway, Ferrier got patched up in an underground aid station and went back to the tents where his squadron slept. Except no one else was there and no one would be. “An officer asked me to collect my squadron’s effects so they could be sent home,” Ferrier said. “Five of six officers and five radiomen; I packed up their belongings to send home.” His plane, the first Grumman TBF-1 aircraft to be in battle and survive, was taken to Hawaii and inspected. They found 67 machine gun bullet holes and nine 20-mm cannon hits. Ferrier was given a three-day stay in the Royal Hawaiian but said, “I had a heck of a headache and didn’t enjoy it much.”

A long career Harry Ferrier would go on to fight other battles in World War II. Like Guadacanal, where, with Torpedo-3, he landed on the USS Enterprise, the

He is a veteran of World War II, Korea and Vietnam. He survived the Battle of Midway, two marriages and retirement. Today he lives in the Regency on Whidbey retirement community in Oak Harbor, and still people ask him to tell his story of Midway. The 86-year-old will tell them his story but will also tell them this: “I was just doing my duty,” he said. “There were so many good guys that didn’t make it back, really good men.” But Harry Ferrier did.

Gallery Golf Course to host tournament

Whidbey Crosswind

It’s not a diamond in the rough, exactly, but it is a gem and rough is a part of the game. Gallery Golf Course, a full service, 18-hole course located on Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, is open to the public. The landscape features stunning views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the Olympic Mountains and Mount Baker, which can be seen from the golf course. Some might say it has it all, and club pro Mike Fields, Professional Golfers Association Head Professional at the course, is looking at ways to get the public to recognize that and make more use of the course. “I’m thinking playing loops, where someone would play four to five holes with time constraints,� Fields said. “Also have tees for kids, families to learn on a shorter course takes some pressure off them and is more rewarding than having to play a full golf course. And have holes that are shorter than the regular holes and run alongside the cart paths.� Another thing Fields has planned is inviting members of Whidbey Island Naval Air Station out to golf. He’s entertaining the idea of going to the the Liberty Northwest Center in Admiral Nimitz Hall and answering questions about golf in general and Gallery Golf Course, which is very close, in particular. Fields wants to invite them out on a Wednesday in May where they’d have

‘Fly Navy’ honors century of flight New book celebrates 100 years of Naval aviation By KATHY REED


Whidbey Crosswind

ou might say research on board the USS Nimitz for one book helped author Alvin Tomley’s next book take flight. “I spent a week on the Nimitz, and realized there was a much larger and more important story to tell,” Townley said in a telephone interview last week. Such was the birth of his newest book, “Fly Navy,” which will be released April 26. His research was already underway when he discovered a lucky coincidence - 2011 marks the centennial of naval aviation. That was all the motivation Townley needed to dive into his latest project. “I kind of immersed myself in it for a year,” he said. “I wrote as I researched, so in a way (the book) is the journey of exploring and learning as I went. It reflects my evolving understanding of naval aviation.” Townley, 35, hails from Atlanta, Ga., and said that like most young American boys, what he knew about naval aviation came from watching the movie “Top Gun.” “I thought (naval aviation) was all about hot shot fighter pilots,” Townley said. “I found out quickly I was wrong. Alvin Townley It takes an entire cast of people to launch aircraft. There’s an amazing pageantry to it that has happened for a hundred years.” “Fly Navy,” is more than just the history of flying. It’s a human interest story. “It struck me how young so many of the service men and women are. Most pilots have been to college, but the average age on a carrier hovers around 21,” said Townley. “It hit me what kind of responsibility they have and they’re just a couple of years out of high school. I want America to understand what special people are involved in defending our nation.” Townley said he wanted to make the book enjoyable to read and put a face on our service men and women. Indeed, his account of Eugene Ely’s first takeoff, and later his first landing, on makeshift wooden decks on the USS Birmingham and the USS Pennsylvania, respectively, pulls readers in. The stories of people enduring extreme training con-

It takes an entire community — – Cdr. Scott Farr and family — to launch an aircraft. That support is so important.” Townley said his research led him to visit most major Naval bases in the in the US, including Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, where Lt. Denver Amerine of Electronic Attack Squadron (VAQ) 129 gave him a tour.

“I had a great time at Whidbey Island,” said Townley. “Denver was just starting his training and we had a great visit. Almost a year later I met him again on the USS Carl Vinson when he was getting his carrier qualifications.” Lt. Amerine is one of three brothers born and raised near Paris, Ark. As Townley recounts in the book, the three boys — Lee, Travis and Denver, the youngest — called themselves Maverick, Goose and Iceman as they were growing up. All three aspired to be pilots like their “Top Gun” personas, and all three realized their dream. Or take Cdr. Scott Farr, VAQ-140 on NAS Whidbey. While on the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower in the Arabian Sea roughly a year ago, Townley met with five squadron commanders. Farr was one of them. Cdr. Farr has been in the Navy for 19 years, 15 of them here on Whidbey Island. He and the other commanders spoke to Townley about the responsibility of command, the rewards of a Navy career and what it’s like to do the job for an extended period of time. “We’re naval officers,” Farr said. “We’re expected to be officers first. There’s a tremendous amount of responsibility that goes with that. But getting to be a part of something bigger than you is very meaningful. Doing a job that not everybody is willing to do or wants to do is unique.” And then there’s the simple joy of doing something you love. “When you go down a catapult and accelerate from zero to 160 miles an hour, it’s the greatest thing in the world,” said Farr.

AVIATION | FROM PAGE 8 Passion like Farr has for the job and stories like that of the Amerine brothers and other Navy families help Townley mix the history of naval flight with current inspiration. “One of the coolest moments was in San Diego,” Townley said. “I was standing with Vice Adm. Tom Kilcline, Jr. His son had earned his wings. His father had also been a vice admiral and his grandfather was an enlisted aviator in World War II. “Here was a man with four generations of naval aviators in his family, talking about the future of aviation... and he said ‘You know, the role and mission will always be changing, but the one thing that is enduring is the value and spirit of naval aviation.’” That is part of what Townley wanted to capture in writing “Fly Navy.” He

wants people outside the world of naval aviation to realize there is more than the combat element of military service. The Navy is dedicated to serving others, Townley said, citing humanitarian efforts in Haiti and more recently, Japan. He

wants those in the service to realize the role they have played over the last century, and the role they continue to play.

“Naval aviation is an institution and enterprise that produces citizens,” he said. “It takes 18-year-old kids from very different backgrounds and teaches them values that are going to make them not only successful members of the armed forces, but also successful citizens when they return to the community. “I hope they can read this book and take away pride in what they’ve been a part of, and what they are still a part of,” said Townley. “There’s a legacy of values and spirit that I hope people who have been a part of it will pass down to the next generation.”

USS George Washington returns to Fleet Activities Yokosuka By ERIN DEVENBERG

Mass Communication Specialist Seaman Apprentice, USS George Washington Public Affairs

YOKOSUKA, Japan (NNS) — Aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) returned to the ship’s forward operating port at Commander, Fleet Activities Yokosuka after almost exactly one month at sea, April 20. “Even after being at sea all this time, we are still ahead of our maintenance schedule and it’s because of you,” said the carrier’s Commanding

Officer Capt. David Lausman during an all-hands call on the ship’s flight deck the afternoon prior to the ship’s return to Yokosuka. “The Sailors aboard this ship, our hard working crew, you are our real secret weapon.” Under normal circumstances, it would take nearly three weeks to get George Washington ready for sea while in the middle of a routine maintenance period. Following the Japan earthquake, the crew got the ship underway in of just six days. “That is your legacy… this is your ship, you did this, you deserve all the credit,” added Lausman.

Continuing maintenance at sea was an unscheduled hurdle for the ship, but was ably overcome with the help of 466 shipyard workers from Puget Sound and Norfolk Naval Shipyard and 116 Japanese contractors from Ship’s Repair Facility Yokosuka. “Our continued work at sea allowed us to complete more than 1,000 jobs on the ship plus 500 to 600 jobs in the plant,” said Lt. Cmdr. Stephen Pomeroy, maintenance manager, George Washington. “We still have work to do, but couldn’t have gotten this far without their full support.”

The invoice should also state the price, the quantity delivered and the quantity upon which the price is based. There should be a statement on the type and quality of the wood. When you buy firewood write the seller’s phone number and the license plate number of the delivery vehicle. The legal measure for firewood in Washington is the cord or a fraction of a cord. Estimate a c o r d by v i s u a l i z i n g a four-foot by eight-foot space filled with wood to a height of four feet. Most long bed pickup trucks have beds that are close to the four-foot by 8-foot dimension. To m a k e a f i r e w o o d complaint, call 360-9021857. weightsMeasures/ Firewoodinformation.aspx
