Veterans of Foreign Wars

By MELANIE HAMMONS

Whidbey Crosswind

Before Terry Buchanan ever wrote his book, “The History of Fort Casey and the Defense of the Pacific Northwest,” the subject was already a lifelong passion for him. “From the first time I ever got my parents to take me there, I was hooked on the place,” said Buchanan. As a junior high school student, he recalls donating lunch money toward the “guns for Fort Casey” civic drive. The 1960’s-era drive by organizations and individuals, sought to raise the estimated $30,000 for duplicate guns to help restore the fort’s authenticity. By the time he was in college, Fort Casey

United by love of country, fellow veterans VFW patches hold special significance By MELANIE HAMMONS

embers of the Veterans of Foreign Wars say their group has been around since at least 1899, when Spanish-American war veterans banded together to unify access to rights and benefits. But the inspiration for the designs of the unique vest patches worn by group members date back much farther

than that, said VFW post 7392 motorcycle group rider and member Al Comeau. “The central feature for each patch - whether for post members, ladies or men’s auxiliary, or junior girls - is the Great Seal of the United States of America,” said Comeau. “That feature appears on a field formed by a Maltese Cross design, which itself may be the most memorable detail of all. “The Cross of Malta, as it is called, is an emblem based on an eight-pointed cross that is similar to one used during the First Crusade, many hundreds of years ago,” he continued. Each sub-group’s identifying name, such as the VFW Ladies Auxiliary, appears in a circular ring around the United States’ seal emblem. Some local VFW

organizations even liken the golden rays emanating from the main logo design to those radiated by the sun. According to Comeau, veterans with qualifying service can apply for membership as post members, while those with qualifying relatives may join the VFW ladies auxiliary or men’s auxiliary. “Post members can also wear a patch that signifies their branch of service,” said Comeau. Local post 7392 enjoys active participation by its post members and ladies auxiliary alike, said VFW motorcycle rider Tom Catoire. “I’m a member of the Sequim VFW men’s auxiliary,”

t was nearly standing room only at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Ladies Auxiliary auction Saturday evening in Oak Harbor. Organizers said the crowd wasn’t quite as big as last year’s, but it was still a good showing. “The weather held off for us and we were pleased with attendance,” said Joanne McDaniel, Ladies Auxiliary president. “It seemed as though people weren’t bidding outrageously, but consistently. We were happy with the outcome.” According to McDaniel, approximately 95 paddles were issued, many going to couples, who took one paddle to share. Items for the auction are new or gently used and are donated by area residents and businesses alike. Auxiliary members began collecting items several months ago and organized them into baskets for a silent auction. Larger items were sold during a live auction.

“We had something in the neighborhood of 200 baskets and close to 100 other items in the silent auction,” McDaniel said. Some of the more interesting live auction items this year included two truckloads of topsoil, a regulationsize pool table and a very unique, hand-carved 18-wheeler truck that was actually a cribbage board. “It was amazing,” said McDaniel. “It took months to carve and paint and it had all the armed services decals. It was really quite something.” In addition to being the main fundraiser for the Ladies Auxiliary during the year, the “We serve, because they served” auction is also a membership drive. That too went well, according to McDaniel. “We feel like we did very well in our membership drive,” she said. “So we’re anxiously awaiting the return of applications and documentation and adding them to our rolls.” To qualify for membership in the Ladies Auxiliary, one must have a spouse, sibling, parent or grandparent who served in a foreign war. Dues are $25 the first year and $20 a year thereafter. Upcoming Auxiliary events include selling Buddy Poppies for Veterans Day, preparing Thanksgiving baskets

PATCHES | FROM PAGE 9 said Catoire, “and also a VFW motorcycle rider here.” Catoire said that the unique projects undertaken by one group are supported across the board by other members. “For example, when the ladies auxiliary plans a fundraiser, such as their annual auction, we support them in any way we can. They supply youth scholarships, and are funding the fallen soldier banner project by selling

T-shirts and other items,” he said. “These are good causes in which we can all make a joint effort.” As VFW motorcycle riders and Patriot Guard Riders, Catoire, Comeau, and other local VFW post members recently began funding a college scholarship from their own group’s efforts. “No matter how a person achieves membership, what’s important is that love for country and fellow veterans is what unites us,” said Comeau. “And that’s what the patches represent.”

I’m Drowning in Artwork!” I heard this from a mother in the school hallway recently. I’ve got a few suggestions for you. Especially for those with relatives living far away, have your child send their artwork as a way of keeping in touch. When my kids come home with completed papers, I review the work with them. Then, I ask them to choose one or two pieces for us to display. When the displayed work is refreshed with new pieces, I have a box I keep for the entire school year. Some will be forever keepsakes, some we will photograph for scrapbooks, and others will be shared with relatives. A child’s artwork also makes great wrapping paper, greeting cards, gift labels and placemats for the holidays. Happy Thanksgiving….

Bazaar season begins Officers’ Spouses Club gets season rolling By K ATHY REED

Whidbey Crosswind

Forget Black Friday. Oak Harbor’s holiday bazaar shopping season has begun and the Officers’ Spouses Club of Whidbey Island helped lead the way. The group held its annual holiday bazaar Saturday at the Roller Barn, boasting about 30 vendors with all manner of items. The Officer Spouses Group from Fleet Air Reconnaissance Squadron (VQ) 1 offered a new-to-the-group item this year — customized travel mugs with changeable inserts. Melissa Wissel, wife of VQ-1 commanding officer, Cmdr. Jeffrey Wissel, said they were

FORT | FROM PAGE 1 formed a major theme of many of his term papers. Ultimately, he wrote his master’s thesis on the topic — but it didn’t end there. “I always took my students to Fort Casey on field trips,” said Buchanan, who retired after teaching elementary school students for 34 years. An audience packed a classroom at the Oak Harbor Library Nov. 3 to hear Buchanan address his favorite subject. He treated the observers to a fascinating collection of pictures and slides related to the fort, and an even more fascinating array of facts. In writing his book, Buchanan went beyond merely researching documents related to Fort Casey.

really excited about the group’s choice this year. “We try something different every year and you never know how it’s going to go,” she said. “If this is successful, absolutely I’d say it’s something we’d do again next year.” Profits from VQ-1’s booth will go to support the sailors in the squadron and their spouses. Kathy Johnson of Anacortes was a firsttime vendor at the OSCWI bazaar. She was selling note cards with photos she had taken, dessert pedestals and customized coaster sets. “I wanted to try this show because it’s been around a long time and I knew there were a lot of vendors,” she said. There was no shortage of creativity on display. Jill Payne, wife of Lt. Cmdr. Richard Payne, put a new twist on nutcrackers that many on Whidbey Island could identify with by dressing them in flight suits instead of

Thanks to interviews with soldiers and others who served at Fort Casey, the book’s commentary seems to come to life. “I was fortunate to be able to interview two World War I soldiers who were in their 90’s at the time,” said Buchanan. He also obtained a video recording, from a soldier, of an action sequence of the famed “disappearing guns,” so-called because the guns only appeared long enough out of their protective encasements to be seen while firing. Audience members directed many questions and comments about the fort to Buchanan. “I’m glad you chose to write this book,” said one. “This is such an interesting part of Whidbey Island’s history.”

unfinished nutcracker and I painted a flight suit on it and attached it to the wreath.”

Payne customized each nutcracker as they were sold, attaching the appropriate squadron logo and painting the wings and rank on each.

OUR VIEWS Embracing the Internet Sometimes, as I mentioned last week, there aren’t enough hours in the day. Some weeks, there aren’t enough pages in the paper! Having too much “news” is actually a very good problem to have. Fortunately, for those stories that just can’t be squeezed in, there is WhidbeyCrosswind.com. In the same vein as the Buggles’ 1979 song “Video Killed the Radio Star,” many have worried in the past few years that the Internet could be the death of newspaper. However, as newspapers figure out how to use the Internet to supplement their day-to-day KATHY news coverage, it has revealed REED a great number of benefits. The Internet allows the posting of real-time story updates, which can be useful if the paper is only published weekly, for example. In my case, WhidbeyCrosswind.com acts as a good vehicle for those items the public needs to know but there wasn’t enough space for in print. I encourage you to check out our website. Running out of space doesn’t happen often, but it does happen. Another advantage to the internet is the ability of our readers to comment on stories. As of Thursday, Sound Publishing will introduce a new format for its online comments using Facebook. The advantage of this move is that it eliminates the ability for people to post comments anonymously. If you have a Facebook page and are logged in, you’ll be able to share feedback on our stories. For those who are not plugged into today’s social media, an old-fashioned letter to the editor will still work as well. You may wonder why we’ve found it necessary to eliminate anonymous commenting. Frankly, people will say things anonymously that they would never dream of saying to someone in person. In much the same way we ask reporters to put their name on their stories, those who want to post comments should be willing to share their identity.

y youngest son, Lindell, 4, has had just one aspiration: to be a dog. I’m not joking. Neither is he. Before Lindell knew his ABCs, he was fetching a tennis ball ... with his mouth. Oh, I had tried to stop this behavior, and I put my foot down when he asked to be fed from a bowl on the floor. But soon it became obvious that Lindell really does have a deep affinity for animals, specifically dogs. We bought him stuffed animals and even live fish (Note: a fish is a not a dog). These only satisfied Lindell temporarily. Then Lindell started asking us to refer to him as Scooby. He pawed at my thighs while I was washing dishes and he licked Dustin’s face. When he called

Sometimes Lindell switched IFE and asked us to call him “Sparky.” Eventually, however, “Sparky” ARAH became the name Lindell said he’d MILEY name his own dog, the one he was sure he’d get someday soon. “Not now,” Dustin said. “There’s no chance we’re getting a dog.” “Are you sure, Dustin?” I said after Lindell went to bed. “Think about how excited the kids would be.” “No. Not a chance. It’s not the right time.” That was early October. Slowly, I began pressing Dustin:

SMILEY | FROM PREVIOUS PAGE “Maybe a dog would help Lindell overcome his habit of fetching tennis balls. Maybe he’d stop asking for Scooby Snacks. And his older brothers are always busy doing other things; a dog would be a playmate for Lindell. I’d take care of it, of course. You wouldn’t be responsible for anything. I’d even clean up all the, um, you know.” “No. Not a chance. We’ve already talked about this.” A week later, Dustin went to the Humane Society after work to pick out a dog for me. The one he had his eye on had already been adopted. When Dustin came home and told me this, I secretly marveled at my powers, powers I’d like to harness. How did I bring him from “no” to “how soon can we get a dog” in the course of one week? Because there are plenty of other things I want, too. By the week of Halloween, we had

found another dog. We didn’t tell the kids. In fact, as late as the day before we got our new dog, I told the boys again, “Stop asking for a dog! It will be a while before we can get a dog!” And then, 24 hours later, we surprised them after school. I believe there are moments in our life we never forget, snapshots stored away in our permanent memory. The look on Lindell’s face when he first saw Sparky is, for me, one of those moments. That first night, Sparky got a taste of his new life: constantly being petted, chased, followed, tugged and stalked by a little boy in a Scooby Doo costume. The two dogs even took a nap together on Sparky’s pillow. Then a funny thing happened, something only Dustin claims to have predicted. Lindell became jealous of the dog. He wanted his own leash and collar. He wanted his own crate. He was sad that everyone pet Sparky more than they pet him.

longer chasing his “tail” and responding to “Lindell” more. If we never could get him trained, it looks like Sparky might. A week later, I was petting Sparky on the living room floor and said over my shoulder to Dustin, “So, what changed your mind about getting a dog? How did I convince you in just a week?” Dustin hesitated, reluctant to give me insight into my powers. Because that would be like letting a dog see from which pocket he gets his treats. I turned around to look at Dustin. “Seriously, why did you decide to get me and the kids a dog?” Dustin smiled and reached out to pet Sparky. “Because you only live once,” he said. Yes, I think even Dustin has found a best friend in Sparky.

We had tapped into a new realm of sibling rivalry. And after a quick search on Amazon.com, there isn’t even a self-help book for dealing with this. Maybe we are the only ones with a son who thinks he’s a dog and is jealous of his family’s real dog. “I think Lindell is just now realizing he’s not actually a dog,” Dustin said. But sometimes, struggling is a good thing. Every first-born child is made stronger and more tolerant by the arrival of a new sibling. And so it will be with Lindell and Sparky. Already, they are easing into their new roles. Sparky is accepting his doghood, and Lindell is accepting his humanness. And all the while, a new friendship is forming between the two species. Sparky is the first thing Lindell looks for when he wakes up in the morning. And Sparky never misses a chance to sniff Lindell’s grubby pants and hands. He is fond of grabbing Scooby’s stuffed costume tail and following him around the house that way. Lindell is barking less, no

Local author shares history with Marines By K ATHY REED

rudy Sundberg may be petite, but she can get a room full of Marines to pay close attention. The local author of the book “O’Bannon: Lieutenant Presley Neville O’Bannon, USMC Hero of the War with Barbary Pirates in Tripoli,” spoke to nearly 100 Marines from the Marine Aviation Training Support Group (MATSG) 53 last Friday at the Officers’ Club on Naval Air Station Whidbey Island. “Every American pays tribute to Lt. Presley O’Bannon whenever someone sings the first line of the “Marines’ Hymn,” which begins “From the Halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli,” Sundberg told the crowd. She shared a little of O’Bannon’s story — of the conditions the Marines endured as they marched 500 hundred miles across the desert and O’Bannon’s triumph as the first man to raise the American flag in victory on foreign soil. Cpl. Lilani Mayes read an excerpt from the book, and members of the audience asked questions. 1st Lt. Ferguson Dale, who had found Sundberg’s previous book on O’Bannon, “Valiant Virginian,” was curious about the difference between the two books. “The first was more of a genealogy,” explained Sundberg, adding that the new book goes into greater detail of the Marines’ mission. “This book will resonate with what’s going on in that region even today,” said MATSG-53 Commanding Officer, Col. Bradley Close, who recommended the book as a good historical reference. Another player in the story is Gen. William Eaton, who led the mission and who usually overshadows O’Bannon in the accounts of the Battle of Derna. “He (Eaton) was definitely involved in it, but the whole

emphasis is on O’Bannon,” Sundberg said. “It’s hard not to have Eaton in the book because he was such an audacious character,” agreed Close. Sundberg drew an appreciative laugh when she explained to the Marines how she got ready for her lecture. “To prepare for today I have watched six Marine movies,” Sundberg said. She is no stranger to military life, however. Her late husband, John, was a Navy Captain, commanding two squadrons at NAS Whidbey and serving in Washington D.C. as well as a military attache at the Hague, the Netherlands. Following her presentation, Col. Close presented Sundberg with a unit coin. Marines then lined up to have Sundberg autograph copies of their books. All proceeds will go to Marine bookstores, Sundberg said. Chief Warrant Officer James St. Pierre said he thought Sundberg’s book should be required reading for all young junior officers who might complain about their job. “Read this and tell me if Lt. Presley O’Bannon complained,” he said.

Tangible gifts of love Quilters wrap veterans, wounded warriors, in comfort By K ATHY REED

T

Whidbey Crosswind

he room buzzes with activity. Hugs are exchanged. Ladies sit at tables, needle and thread in hand as they work on various projects. This is typical of a meeting of Quilters on the Rock, a not-for-profit quilt guild that meets monthly at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Coupeville. Many in attendance make a beeline for quilter Lynn Scoby, who facilitates the American Hero Quilts project on Whidbey and Camano islands. Some present her with finished quilt-tops, some with completed quilts, others ask for a kit and still others just pause to chat. “The social side (of quilting) is as important as the creative,” Scoby said. But love of quilting translates into a love of helping others for many of the members of Quilters on the Rock. The group has a Community Quilts branch which provides quilts to patients at Whidbey General Hospital undergoing cancer treatment, to Citizens Against Lynn Scoby Domestic and Sexual Abuse (CADA), to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Island County, the pregnancy care center and various other organizations. “They are tangible gifts of love. I think that’s what the mantra is for Community Quilts,” said quilter Ramona Tankersley, a retired Navy nurse. “Those quilts stay on the island. They are for those that are in need on the island.” The American Hero Quilts are different.

Get involved: Quilters on the Rock meets the third Monday of each month at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Coupeville. Sit and Sew (social hour) begins at 6 p.m. and the meeting begins at 7 p.m. Annual dues are $25. Go to www.quiltersontherock.com for information. Information on American Hero Quilts can be found at www.americanheroquilts.com. You can read several letters of thanks from wounded warriors and family members by following the link to the American Hero Quilts blogspot.

“When I found out about this program, I thought ‘this is perfect,’” said Scoby. “This is something I can do that’s meaningful to me. I don’t have to get involved in the political side or the controversy. This is comfort, this is what we do.” American Hero Quilts was founded in 2004 by Vashon Island resident Sue Nebeker. She read an article about a 22-year-old soldier who had done two tours of duty in Iraq — he committed suicide after returning home. She wanted to find a way to help. “I’m old enough to remember Vietnam,” Nebeker said. “I felt like if we could make quilts for wounded warriors it would help. I was trying to find a way to make a difference so it wasn’t like Vietnam.” Scoby discovered the program in 2005, and brought it to the Quilters on the Rock board, asking if she could present the project to members. “I thought then people who are interested could contribute fabric or be involved and share in this project,” Scoby said. “But I didn’t want to compete with the community project.” After a year or two, Quilters on the Rock added the hero quilts to the budget, providing some funds each year so Scoby can purchase fabric and other supplies. Another group, Fidalgo Island Quilters, passes the hat and also provides an annual contribution. “We consider the cost of a quilt to be $300. That includes the front, back and batting,” said Nebeker. “Most quilters provide their own fabric, so we’re looking at people having donated over $3 million worth of just materials.” To date, American Hero Quilts has sent 10,016 quilts. Nebeker said she receives quilts from across the country and sends more than 200 quilts a month. The Family Services Program at Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma gets at least 100 quilts a month. Another 100 a month are sent to Afghanistan. She said Island County quilters make up a significant portion of the quilts they’ve

received. “What your group does over there, they’re really prolific. One thing that is amazing to me, I’ve never seen the same quilt come from there, and there’s only so much you can do with red, white and blue fabric,” Nebeker laughed. “But they have a very clear understanding that they’re making something for a hero, and you can see the care and love put into it,” she continued.

Creative process Scoby likens the process of making a quilt to putting a meal on the table. “You have to pick the fabric and pick the pattern, so that’s like picking your menu and your recipes,” she explained. “Then I cut the fabric into a kit.” People take the kits, which include the fabric and pattern, which they can work at them at their own pace. “Some of the same people do it over and over and some people try to do one a year,” Scoby said. “Some get it back to me the next month, some take a few months, but they just keep trickling back.” “There’s some members that just quilt. This is what they do to stay busy or keep sane,” said Tankersley. “So some buy their own fabric and some will just come and get a kit and they’ll just do it up and give it back and take

another one.� “For some of them it’s a kind of therapy, because they don’t have to pick the fabric, pick the pattern,� Scoby said. “It’s all cut for them so they can just sit down and sew.� Because there are quilters at different levels, Scoby and Tankersley said the patterns are kept relatively simple, but still interesting to make. “We rely a lot on the fabrics, on the prints, to make them interesting,� Scoby said. When the quilt tops are given back Scoby, they are ferried to Stanwood where a quilting group there holds work parties to finish the hero quilts. There is an emotional reward worth more than any dollar value attached to these quilts. “When we make quilts, the hope is a wounded warrior will think of it as a metaphoric hug,� Nebeker said. “We hope it will help in the healing process.� “They’re heirlooms for some people, for some of them it’s a shroud — they bury their loved one in the quilt,� Scoby said. “For some of them who have been braininjured, they identify with the quilt like a small child does, like a security blanket. “To realize that our quilts are affecting people like this and the families that write us the thank you notes, are just heartwarming,� she continued. “I can’t even read them out loud I get such a lump in my throat.� As the U.S. moves toward removing troops from Iraq and the drawdown in Afghanistan, Nebeker said she isn’t sure exactly what the future holds, although she

Evelyn Blair of Clinton stitches a baby quilt at the October meeting of Quilters on the Rock.
