U.S. Army Capt. Elwood Euart is home - Pawtucket Times

Monday, September 05, 2016

We never thought it would come to this.”Elwood Euart, a Pawtucket native, died in World War II when two underwater mines exploded near the stern of the SS President Coolidge as the ship entered the harbor of the island Espiritu Santo.Of the more than 5,000 men on the ship, Euart was one of only two to die. He had escaped from the ship but returned when he learned men were still trapped below deck, with the ship taking on water.Euart successfully helped the remaining men to shore but was unable to escape when the ship slipped off a reef and into the sea. He died at age 28.It wasn’t until 2013 that a diver discovered Euart’s remains and until last year that he was positively identified through DNA. When Vallee got a call regarding DNA, he initially thought it was a hoax.Now, Euart is set to be buried alongside his parents in St. Francis Cemetery in Pawtucket. All 11 nieces and nephews – along with some of their spouses, children and grandchildren – are slated to be present for the wake, presentation of awards, Mass and burial on Tuesday and Wednesday. Family will be coming from as far as Maryland, South Carolina and Texas.On Saturday morning, Len Euart, Paul Vallee and Elwood Vallee met at Keefe Funeral Home and were taken to T.F. Green in a police escort. As the Delta plane landed, they were impressed with how many people they could see watching from the terminal windows.Members from the National Guard removed the casket from the plane, and many Army representatives were present.“It was scary. It was hard to keep my composure,” Paul Vallee said. He noted that he had seen the remains recovered from his uncle’s body – such as a watch, dog tag, compass, pen and shoes – but seeing the body in person was a completely different experience.Vallee heard a lot about the uncle he never met from his mother, but Elwood Euart was always sort of a “mythological figure” to him.Len Euart also heard stories an

Sgt. Deborah Elaine Easler; Spec. 4th Class Leonard David Fairchild Jr.; Seaman Recruit Michael Lee McRill; Pvt. Calvin Coolidge Cherry Jr.; Pvt. Richard Eugene Traxler; and Fireman Robert Lowell Burk into the chapel at East Tennessee Veterans Cemetery on Gov. John Sevier Highway.Cesar Correa, pastor of NorthStar church's South campus, delivered a eulogy, reading names, dates and branches of service, and what few other details were known."As I thought about these men and this woman, I couldn't help but wonder, what were their stories?" Correa said. "We know so precious little about these veterans, their lives, their hopes, their struggles. … How sad it is for us that we know so little of them."Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett, whose father served in World War II, said he is "in awe" of veterans and expressed remorse that untreated post-traumatic stress disorder and other issues might have marred their years after service."As a nation, this is an indictment of us, that we have homeless veterans who are not getting the care they need," Burchett said. "This should never happen in this great country of ours."Speakers broadcast the service to those who came to pay their respects but couldn't squeeze inside. Flag-holding veterans circled the back and sides of the building through the ceremony, as six shots were fired, "Taps" played, and six doves released.As the service concluded, the veterans' flags were presented. Representatives of the local Women

Heads up: Mount Rushmore marks a milestone this year - Sacramento Bee

Monday, June 06, 2016

The mountain was dedicated for the project on Aug. 10, 1927. Newsreel footage shows President Calvin Coolidge handing a set of drill bits to Borglum. Fourteen years later, several months after Borglum’s death, his son Lincoln (now there’s a coincidence!) Borglum oversaw the work’s completion. The final drilling took place on Halloween 1941.The carving process, detailed in the film and in a couple of on-site galleries, took 6 1/2 years total as winter weather and funding hiccups idled the site for the balance of those 14 years. Hundreds of men, mostly locals, earned 30 cents to $1.50 per hour for their labors, much of which they performed in swing-set-like chairs that dangled over the mountaintop. They used dynamite to remove half a million tons of rock, which is haphazardly piled beneath the memorial.How safe was that work? Allow me to quote from my tray table in Mount Rushmore’s cafeteria, once I set aside my plate of fried potatoes to read the script:“The drillers had respirators, but they did not always wear them because they plugged up with dust. The workers did not have hard hats or steel-toed boots and a wad of cotton was the best ear plug of the time. There were many bumps and bruises and some close calls, but no fatalities.”21The length of the George Washington sculpture’s nose, in feetThat clean safety record is impressive. And the finished product is impressively popular, not just in classrooms where American history is taught, but also in popular culture (Alfred Hitchcock’s 1959 thriller, “North by Northwest,” rather absurdly climaxes there) and, of course, in tourism. According to the National Park Service, Mount Rushmore National Memorial drew 2.44 million visitors in 2015, ranking 36th in the NPS domain – one spot above Glacier National Park in Montana, and one behind Rock Creek Park. (I had not heard of that latter site; perhaps you have, if you have encountered it inside the Washington, D.C., beltway.) The Brokaw-narrated visitors center film ends with soaring, upbeat verbiage. It lacks any hint of disapproval, but as old-time radio man Paul Harvey used to say, now for the rest of the story.Stone-cold controversyThe Black Hills, a small mountain range that tops out at 7,242 feet, for thousands of years was home to American Indians. In 1868, the Fort Laramie Treaty between native peoples and the U.S. government (Gen. William Tecumseh Sherman was on the negotiating team) essentially promised th
