General Notes: Personal Memories

Mom grew up in Benezette PA- always seemed to be home to them even though they left in the early 1940s. The Benezette Winslows lived in a very small town atmosphere where everyone knew each other. Mom’s family while not rich were probably better off than many with running water, the town store, a telephone, etc.

General Notes: Personal Memories

Dad was a soft spoken, hard working Virginian who moved up to Penna where Mom was from and to Ohio to find better working conditions-as a millwright in the steel mills of Youngstown Ohio. He grew up in relatively poor economic family conditions in Virginia-( he enjoyed the Waltons TV show of Virginia, but thought they were rich compared to his upbringing.) His family- my aunts, uncles, and cousins; I didn’t know my Nay grandparents- always seemed to have an extra closeness and togetherness among them. I always and still do enjoy visits with them and especially trips to Batesville Virginia. I remember Dad working all three shifts at the steel mills and the coke/coal smell that would come home on his clothes. He also worked a second job in an appliance store installing and repairing appliances. He enjoyed country music ( especially his brother “Bee” singing and playing guitar); enjoyed our sports playing when he could watch; enjoyed his grandchildren; enjoyed his family; and enjoyed helping others. Everybody loved Jake.

The U.S. Army Transportation Corps has the task of moving personnel, equipment, and supplies. Members of the Corps perform this task by a variety of means. Rail service is one of those means, and during World War II, it was a little-publicized yet successful aspect of the war. Dad (entered Nov 9, 1942 and discharged Nov 17, 1945) was with the 774th Railway Grand Division in Europe. I don’t know what he did but his discharge papers stated driving a light truck. Dad would not talk much about his military service during WW2- based on his discharge papers which are the only remaining records- these were the major campaigns he was involved in: North Africa 5/11/42-5/13/43 Naples-Foggia 9 September 1943-21 January 1944 Rome-Arno 22 January-9 September 1944 North Apennines 10 September1944-4 April 1945

Noted events in his life were:

  • Military: Between Nov 9, 1942 and Nov 17, 1945. Foggio; Rome, Arno; Purple Heart 1944, Africa, Southern France; North Apennines
  • He was employed before WWII Worked In Civilian Conservation Corps; Steelworker(Youngstown Sheet And Tube- Millwright Almost 30 Years).
  • Residences: Batesville And Richmond, VA, New Castle PA ; Boardman Ohio.
  • Social Security Number: 223-24-3037.
  • Military: Abt 1943, Probably After Basic Training Went To Camp Reynolds Near New Castle PA Where He Met His Future Wife Who Was Then Living In New Castle; Then Went Overseas To Europe.

General Notes: Biography

WBW remembering Benezette: I find it very interesting, especially the history of the Benezette Winslow hotel and the Frank Blesh comment concerning Blesh Hotel. I can well remember a sign on the window of the Henry Blesh & Son store and hotel. The Son was Frank Blesh. I think I can remember of seeing him in the store when Mon or Dad would take me there when I was 6//8 years old. Also well recall a Julius Jones that worked there as a clerk. And another worker there–“Shorty Shaffer” The store had a glass bow-top counter, where they had the candy displayed. As I would stand there looking at the candies, as Mom or Dad was shopping, one of the clerks would give me a piece of “Penny candy”. A really BIG event for me. The store was a general store–a sort of a combination grocery-hardware-dry goods-clothing-animal feed & care items and would you believe, even had a gasoline pump at the front of the store. When we moved into town[from the Winslow Hill farm],[about1925 ]this was the only store in town. A few years later Mom & Dad opened a small one room grocery store, then added a Pennzoil gas pump. I think about the same time Swackhammer opened a small store across the road. I am a little fuzzy on the time that the Swackhammer store opened.

From US Air Force Memorial: My uncle- William B Winslow- started as an enlisted soldier in 1935, became a WWII B17 pilot stationed in Thurleigh, England (Clay Pigeons -the 306 (H) Bomb Group,367 Squadron, the Mighty 8th Air Force), and retired after 25 years as a Lt Col, USAF. As one of our many WW2 heroes he was able to serve his country in a critical time and to live his passion- aviation. And this passion did not end upon his military retirement. He lived his last years in Titusville FL- close enough to look out from his yard and enjoy the space shots at Kennedy Space Center. He became my “flight mentor” as I fulfilled a life long dream of learning to fly late in life. After every flight lesson and many times in between we would spend “hanger” hours talking about my lessons and his experiences. Thank you Uncle Bill (Lt Col William B Winslow) for your service to America and aviation. You are our own “legend of air power”.

Month after month, since September, 1942, American newspapers and magazines have brimmed over with colorful stories about this most colorful of all B-24 outfits.
