Rounds

EDITOR’S NOTE: It goes without saying that we regret all the

errors that appear in The Graybeards. But, we will say it nonetheless:

we apologize for all the errors that appear in The Graybeards.

Off by 100 years

The Nov/Dec 2009 issue of The Graybeards came to me just in

time as we were socked in for days with snow. The streets are

passable, but a 4’ barrier from plows prevents us from getting

out.

Yesterday, the gear box on my snowblower blew. This allowed

me time to more thoroughly read the contents. Please refer to

page 37, lower right, where it reads “134 Birthday of Marine

Corps.” It should read 234.

Semper Fi,

Allen Affolter, New Ulm, MN

EDITOR’S NOTE: It should indeed. The USMC celebrated its 234th

birthday in 2009.

Misspelled names

Joe Calabria informed us that we misspelled his name—

twice—on p. 26 of the Nov/Dec 2009 issue. The correct spelling

is Calabria, not Calabrese or Calabrea, as we printed it.

Likewise, the name of the author of the story on pp. 28-29 was

incorrectly written as Nicholas Champagne. The author’s real

name is Norman Champagne.

Gen. Matthew B. Ridgway

Please remind everyone that there is no “e” in Ridgway—at

least not in the General’s name. I noticed that on pages 30, 48,

and 64 of the Nov/Dec issue that the “e” was inserted. It’s a common

error that I try to correct whenever I can.

Of course, we are more aware of it since our chapter is named

after him.

Editor’s Address Change

It is time for me to relocate to my “southern office.” Effective 1

January 2010 my mailing address will be:

Arthur G. Sharp

895 Ribaut Road, #13

Beaufort, SC 29902

Make sure you include the #13 in the address. Otherwise,

there is no telling whose mail box your missives will land in.

That address will remain in effect until further notice. Of course,

you can still send mail to the “northern office,” but it will be forwarded

to Beaufort, which means a built-in delay.

My phone # will also change. Call me at (860) 202-3088 or

(860) 944-8693. The preferred number is (860) 202-3088.
