2008 reunion


419th Reunion - Wash. D.C. June 2005

Abraham Lincoln - the scourge of slavery
"As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy. Whatever differs from this, to the extent of the difference, is no democracy."
-Abraham Lincoln
Joe GebhardtNoel Jacobs and Fred HaasSince launching this website, I've received a heap of E-mails from veterans, sons, daughters, nieces and nephews of veterans both offering and searching for WWII information. This site was created initially, soley from my dad's scrap book. Since its launch others have contributed photographs, personal stories and scraps from their dad's scrap books. Thank you!

In the fall of 1997, my brother Jay received a phone call from the past. The caller, Noel Jacobs, was looking for my father. He said that he'd driven dad's half-track into the Battle of the Bulge and that he'd been "looking for Joe Gebhardt for 50 years".

In 1944, my father had been a 21-year old 1st lieutenant serving with the 419th "A" Battery Armored Field Artillery Battalion. The 419th Battalion was part of the 10th Armored "Tiger" Division and advancing toward the Siegfried Line with Patton's Third Army in the fall and winter of 1944-45.

A few weeks after Noel's phone call, in late July 1998, my older brother Jim, his wife Sharon and I flew to Oklahoma to meet the men who served with my dad during the war. It was, coincidentally, the same day that Steven Spielberg's film "Saving Private Ryan" was released.

Noel Jacobs' local newspaper The Stillwater News Press, on July 25, 1998, wrote of our reunion:

(click here for full article)

The corporal's job with the battalion was to drive an officer's half track--called an 'exec-track'--for his lieutenant, Joseph Gebhardt. Jacobs said he shook hands with the man in Germany at the end of the war. "I lost him and never heard from him anymore," Jacobs said. "1945 was the last time I'd seen him, and I've wondered about him all these years, what's happened to him."' He said he ran into another lieutenant (Malcolm Cohen) recently who had known Gebhardt and thought he lived in New York. Jacobs started dialing. New York information turned up a name and he found himself talking to Gebhardt's youngest son's wife on the phone. She told him he died in 1965.

"Fifty-some years I was wondering where he was at and everything, and within 15 minutes from the time I started calling I found him," he said.

The kicker; Lt. Gebhardt's (oldest) son, now in his mid 40's, is in town for the 419th Battalion reunion, and looking forward to hearing all about his dad's wartime exploits. Nobody is in a better position than Jacobs himself.

Noel builds snowmanNear the end of our weekend reunion, Noel took my brother and I in his arms and prayed with us. This seemed no mere gesture. It was an act of faith. I realized then that these men, officially cited for outstanding teamwork, initiative and bonded by war, were also fearless by the courage that comes from the cornerstone of faith.

You will not fear the terror of the night,
or the arrow that flies by day,

or the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
or the destruction that wastes at mid day.

--Psalm 91: 5-6

Joe Gebhardt & Malcolm CohenA few months later, we met with Malcolm Cohen, who at 86, still lives in New York City (where he'd run into my father in 1963) and who, like my dad, was an officer in the 419th. Malcolm's role, as liaison officer, was to relay messages back and forth from the combat units to the 419th, to support the infantry with "fires".

Malcolm said that their Commanding Officer, Col. Robert C. McCabe was a great leader because he cared about his men, and led them through Europe with an almost divine navigation, avoiding Nazi death traps, while effectively protecting the combat troops. His command of the 419th was not without its obstacles, however. Col. McCabe, for some inexplicable reason, had been taken from the battalion shortly before their departure to the ETO. Then, a day or two before the 419th sailed to Europe he returned, just as mysteriously, as their Commanding Officer. Malcolm attributes much of the 419th's success to Col. McCabe's outstanding leadership.

I was happy to meet these men who knew my father during the war. Gerry St. Amand, who served in dad's Executive section, said that over the years when he needed help, he knew that he could always turn to the 419th. The connections were strong and remained strong. He also told me of a day during the war when he and my father had been standing up front on their half-track, advancing toward the Siegfried Line. When a rifle shot rang between them, each thought the other "got it". Realizing they were OK, they quickly ducked and smiled with relief. Last summer (2000), I met with Jerry's daughter, Doria Grimes, who revealed how popular her dad was with the guys as they passed through France because he could translate to the enthusiastic Parisian gals!

Studying these pictures of cold and war, and reading Col. McCabe's After-Action Reports (and Stephen Ambrose's Citizen Soldier and Gardner Hatch'sHistory of the 10th Armored Division) I think back to my father and his youthful command of these men. Although just a twinkle in his eye at the time, in my collective consciousness, I relive everything. Perhaps his winter 44-45 experience has alot to do with my own particular aversion to "cold" (I wear sweaters alot) and all things "violent", and maybe (just maybe) why I like these men so much.
