Stopping Patton

Addison’s Store was located right in the midst of the maneuver battle at Mount Carmel.

During the famous Louisiana Maneuvers of 1941, these training maneuvers were broken down to Phase 1 and Phase 2. Phase 1 ran from September 15 to September 19, 1941, and Phase 2 ran from September 24 to September 28, 1941.

During Phase 1 General George S. Patton and his 2nd Armored Division were assigned to the Red Second army commanded by General Ben Lear. Early on the morning of September 15 Patton and his troops attacked across the Red River westward toward Fort Jesup and Many, La. from the area near Winnfield, Montgomery, and Natchitoches. Patton’s armored units had to be stopped. But how could they be stopped and just where would the Blue 3rd Army stop him?

General Patton had been ordered to attack westward and then turn south-southeast in an attempt to push the Blue Army back. The goal of these armored attacks were to hit hard and fast and move in and capture the town of Leesville and Camp Polk, thus winning the maneuver battle for Phase

Patchwork

He was known by many names—Chief, E-Rod, Snake, Husband, Daddy and Grandpa. He was a unique and well-liked man. He endeared himself to hundreds, possibly thousands, over a lifetime. He could be spotted easily—wearing a United States Marine Corps ballcap because he one of “The Few. The Proud. The Marines.” A yellow feather sprouted from his ballcap….a salute to his two brothers who died on foreign soil serving their country. We (and I say we because he was loved and respected by all) lost him on January 8, 2019 at the age of 81.

A large crowd bid him farewell at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church in a beautiful ceremony led by Father Frances Kamau and Brother Wayne Chance on January 11, 2019. Words spoken brought tears and sometimes laughter to those in attendance. American flags flapped in a chilly breeze as members of the Patriot Guard assisted in the gravesite rites.
