With his and experience, the knowledge 311th feels confident that they will benefit immensely and hope he will be with the outfit for the duration. The bivouac held last week by the 311th Depot Repair Squadron in conjunction with the 31st . Air Depot Group resulted in a bit of friendly rivalry between those who attended the bivouac and those left behind. The men left behind claimed that they could do better on the rifle range than the others. So the officers of the 311th took the enlisted men of this organization on a bivouac on June 28. The men who had participated in the bivouac held at Fort Douglas last week will be spectators while the rest of the men try to beat their record. They will have some good records to beat because more than half those who attended last week's bivouac qualified on the rifle range. The bivouac will last for a week and the officers hope that the men will gain as much experience as they did on the last bivouac. A committee has been selected to plan a Sunday of relaxation which will be in the form of an outing in the mountains. Details, as yet, are not complete, but a program of sightseeing, hiking, swimming and a picnic lunch are in the making. The 311th Depot Repair Squad-ron in the past week has been increased in numbers. fttlv . we Among the new enlisted men Master were fortunate in having as- - Frederick Sonnenberg ligned to the 311th as first art. ser geant Master Sgt.

One of his most interesting assignments was in charge of the military guard on board ship for the Philippine Islands with what is believed to be the last large cargo of planes to reach the archipelago before hostilities. After that date in 1941, so far as known, all plane reinforcements were flown in. Master Sgt. Jack B. Steele of the Depot Repair Squadron has had 16 years experience in the army. Prior to the outbreak of war in 1941, he was in charge of a guard on ship carrying what is believed to be the last large ship ment of aircraft sent by boat to the Philippines before the United States entered the war. Sgt. Steele was a technical ser geant in 1941, stationed at Oakland Municipal Airport until he was sent on board the ship to guard the aircraft which was lashed to the deck for the crossing.

In IfaJn Captain MASTER SERGEANT . , , Has had 16 years in school Aa T The 2490th Quartermaster Truck Company for the first time is now using this week the new board method of qualifying prosofficers. pective The system has been introduced by 31st ADG Headquarters and, it is believed, will enable the qompany commander to recommend the most able enlisted men for respective NCO grades with a minimum of detail on his partseven interview senior non-coA board of from three to has reason to believe, officer the men whom commanding the deserve a rating or are capable of holding down a more responsible for a promotion job. In the event the prospect Isthebeing considered to one of the first two grades, examining board is to be composed of from two to four commissioned officers. Great consideration Is given to the military experience of the soldier, such as guard duty, gas training and NCO schools attended. Other factors weighing in the balance are the man's conduct, service record, military discipline and courtesy, neatness and expression, his general knowledge of military factors, and interest in his organization and its mission. We mentioned last week that we were out on the rifle range, but It was not possible at the time to report on the results achieved by our truck drivers. Now we have the verdict. We find that more of the men who fired qualified for medals. than Among the highs were Staff Sgt. Fred Thomas making 178 for expert rifleman, Technician Fourth Grade Robert Navarre with 171 for sharpshooter, and Pfc. Wilbur Ayler, a sharpshooter, also with 168. Highest marksman was Technician Fourth Grade Eugene Uhlor with 159. Of these four' highest men, three are mechanics and one is a driver. First Sgt. Larry Harbitz, Reporter. Note -- Twenty-fourt- h .
