News from Corporate Member
The Office of the Director of the Army Heritage Center Foundation sends the following:
On June 5, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. the Army Heritage Center Foundation will host Dr. Brooke Blades for a D-Day legacy presentation at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center, 950 Soldiers Drive, Carlisle. This presentation will use historical and modern documentation to explore elements of the D-Day history at Omaha Beach, the appearance of beach sectors immediately following the landings, and the manner in which some of those sectors have changed. This event is free and open to the public.  June 6 will signify the 70th Anniversary of D-Day where 160,000 Allied troops landed along a 50-mile stretch of heavily-fortified French coastline to fight Nazi Germany on the beaches of Normandy, France. More than 5,000 ships and 13,000 aircraft supported the D-Day invasion. By day’s end, the Allies gained a foothold in Normandy, at a cost of more than 9,000 Allied Soldiers killed or wounded The D-Day landings in Normandy, by the Allied Expeditionary Force seventy years ago, began the liberation of Europe. The airborne landing fields, the beaches named Utah and Omaha, and the cemetery behind Omaha have collectively become for Americans "a sacred spot" that offers "a chance to lay out our first principles" in the words of a former presidential speech writer.  Dr. Blades is the author of Aurignacian Lithic Economy: Ecological Perspectives from Southwestern France. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree from the College of William and Mary, Master’s degree from the University of Pennsylvania, and his Ph.D. in Anthropology from New York University. He has performed historical and archaeological research of French and Indian War, Civil War, and World War II military sites. He has provided documentary and topographical research of World War II battlefields in Normandy and the Ardennes and has worked on several archaeological excavation projects in Pennsylvania, Maryland, New York, Virginia, and France.

CB/CV Chapter's Corporate Member, Gabler Trucking

Hosts a Wounded Warrior Trout Fishing Outing

The event took place at the Gabler Family Property.  It began about 0900 on 20 April with coffee and donuts provided. The warriors fished until about noon.  Lunch was served to all in attendance and fishing resumed after lunch until about 1600. There were 8 Wounded Warriors.  As Eric Wertz, a Gabler employee and member of the chapter board, said,  the Gablers were the hosts and underwrote the costs.  Eric is to be commended for his coordination with Darv Stutz of Healing Waters.  Darv coordinated with Healing Waters to get the warriors there and provide guides.  Some local fishermen also assisted the warriors. The Commander of LEAD, Col Vic Hagen,  attended with MSG Joe Shaul. This event was spectacular.  This happened as a result of the Gabler Family, Eric, Darv and the other local companies that provided the goodie bags.  The Gablers are very gracious, generous and sincere people.  Among those in attendance were: Chip Gabler & his wife, Pam; Chuck Gabler, Tom Gabler, Ben Gabler.  Ken (Gabler operations/dispatcher) and Eric Wertz, Gabler Business Development.  Great people, running a great company who are very community minded.  We are fortunate to have them as corporate members.
