On August 16, 1943 the 65th Infantry Division was formed at Camp Shelby, MS. Like most newly formed divisions in 1943, the 65th traveled to different bases with the XV and IX Corps, where they trained for the upcoming battles across Europe. The 65th Infantry Division trained until December 31, 1944 when they prepared to embark from Camp Shanks, NY to France. The 65th Infantry Division boarded troop transports in New York on January 10, 1945, and arrived in Le Havre, France on January 21, 1945.

A-8 10/SEC [1/30TH] TIMER

Grade 582 1/30-second timer used by the US Army-Airforce and known as Watch. Navigation (Ground Speed) Type A-8.

One of its most important uses of the A-8 was for navigation. Air speed indicators on WWII aircraft were controlled by air being forced into the air speed indicator as you flew your plane. The problem was that as you gained altitude less and less air entered the device and there was always a wind blowing and your speed relative to the ground is going to be either lower or higher depending on whether you are flying into the wind or with the wind.

To make corrections and get  your actual speed relative to the ground you needed to do some arithmetic. You had to figure your actual ground-speed and compare it to the airspeed indicator and then adjust your navigation calculations accordingly. The pilot or navigator would pick out, say, a pair of known parallel roads or other landmarks about 5 to 10 miles apart early in your flight and the measure the distance between them using the scale on a map, they would then click this 10 second timer on and then off as they    flew from one to the other. Some basic [for those that were trained] calculations and division and they had their actual ground speed.

In addition, the A-8 was utilized by Military Engineers, Forward Observers, Submarine Crews and other military outfits.

IMG_9544.JPG (181808 bytes)

Camp Shelby was established in 1917 and named in honor of Isaac Shelby, Indian fighter, Revolutionary War hero and 1st Governor of Kentucky by the first troops to train here, the 38th Division.

The training center was established during World War I and it has served almost continuously since then as a training site, not only for the Reserve Components of the Army, but also for the Active Components of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force.

Some of the divisions that have trained in Mississippi include the 31st, 37th, 38th, 43rd, 63rd, 65th [AND IT’S 265TH ENGINEER COMBAT BATTALION] , 69th, 85th, 94th, and the 99th Divisions.

Even the famous Japanese-American 442nd Regimental Combat Team and 100th Battalion trained here in preparation for World War II (See the 1951 movie Go For Broke! and the 2006 movie Only the Brave).

U.S. Navy Seabee units homeported or mobilized from the Naval Construction Battalion Center in Gulfport, Mississippi utilize Camp Shelby as the site for their Field Training Exercises (FTX).

Women’s Army Corps (WAC) units also trained here

The post contained a large convalescent hospital and had a prisoner of war camp which housed soldiers of the famous German Afrika Corps in WWII.

The Service Flag or Blue Star Mothers Flag

The Service flag is an official banner authorized by the Department of Defense for display by families who have members serving in the Armed Forces during any period of war or hostilities the United States may be engaged in for the duration of such hostilities.

The Service flag/ Blue Star Flag, was designed and patented by WWI Army Captain Robert L. Queisser of the 5th Ohio Infantry,.quickly became the unofficial symbol of a child or loved one in service. In 1918, President Wilson approved the act of   wearing a gold gilt star on the traditional black mourning arm by mothers who had lost a child in the war .A tradition of covering the blue star with a gold star on the Service flag to indicate a service members death soon followed. WWII was the war that expanded the practice of displaying the Service flag and soon Flags were hand made by mothers across the nation. The most famous flag was that of the five Sullivan brothers who all perished at one time on the U.S.S. Juneau.

IMG_9588.JPG (168443 bytes)

In 1960 Congress chartered the Blue Star Mothers of America as a Veterans Service Organization and in 1966, the Department of Defense revised the specifications for design, manufacture and display of the Service flag  Part of the Blue Star Mothers movement was to provide care packages to military members serving overseas and also provided assistance to families who encountered hardships as a result of their son or husband serving in the war. The Department of Defense specifies that family members authorized to display the flag include the wife, husband, mother, father, stepmother or father, parent through adoption, foster parents, children, stepchildren, children through adoption, brothers, sisters and half brothers or sisters of a member of the Armed Forces of the United States. The flag should be displayed in a window of the residence of persons authorized. The Service flag may also be displayed by an organization to honor the members of that organization serving during a period of war or hostilities. Display of a Service Star Banner is done during times of war. Once again families are displaying banners at home. Blue Star Flags may be purchased through the internet, at stores, or made by hand.

IMG_9587.JPG (167476 bytes)

The Service Flag is an indoor flag and should be flown facing out from the front window of the home or organization.If the U.S. flag is also displayed with the Service flag, the U.S. flag should be of equal or greater proportions and should take the place of honor above the Service flag.Each blue star on the flag represents a service member in active duty. A gold star is displayed if a service member is killed in action or dies in service. If several stars are displayed by one family the gold star takes the honor of being placed at the top. The gold star should be slightly smaller than the blue star to create a blue border surrounding the gold star.
