Holidays Brunch 7 December
Our August Brunch was held at the Masonic Hall in Odenton
Our next brunch, the summer Brunch will be on Sunday, August 24th at the
Odenton Masonic Lodge at 10:30, This used to be the time when we showed off our skill in the garden. Now the only ones who know of tilling the soil are Ozzie and Leo. Most of us now search out a good produce place. Preferably a farmer. One who has tomatoes ripen on the vine.
The Anniversary Brunch on the 22nd of June was attended by thirty four
members. The food was plentiful with two nicely decorated sheet cakes in honor of Betty and Fred Petrogallo (65th) and Donna and Ben Simon (50th). Betty and Donna were presented a dozen dark roses. The table center pieces were plants of miniature
A meeting was held in which the treasurer reported that the chapter was
solvent and Leo gave the secretary’s report. A question was posed by a member as to the state of the ACICV. Unfortunately, none of the five directors present could supply an answer. The obvious is that no communication is forthcoming from the president nor has a newsletter been published for over a year. Communication between members and with members is what makes any organization, of any type function. Without it, the unit soon dies on the vine. The conclusion was for the present officers to resign and the directors select an interim leader to put the organization on its feet.

This year we honor Shirley and Lew Nippard, Betty and Fred Petrogallo, and Donna and Ben Simon. All will reach their 65th Anniversary this year and we
congratulate them for those Wedding with 38 in attendance, an excellent turnout. Fran Perry gave the invocation and Ozzie Kinat led the group in
our Pledge of Allegiance. The members then sat down to a fine meal.
After eating, Ozzie presented the treasurer’s report and David Good then discussed a book written by Annie Jacobson titled “Operation Paperclip, the National Intelligence Program that brought Nazis to America.”The individuals immigrated were top scientists involved in rocket and atomic
1research in Germany, the program was to evacuate them before the Communists could deport them to the Soviet Union. Among the more notable was Werner Magnus Maxilillian Freiherr von Braun (March
23, 1912-June 16, 1977). He was a German rocket engineer and space architect. He was one of the leading figures in the development of
rocket technology in Germany during WWII and, subsequently, in the United States. He is credited as being the “Father of Rocket Science.”
In his 20s and early 30s, von Braun was the central figure in the Nazis’ rocket development program, responsibilities for the design and realization of the V2 combat rocket during WWII. After the war, he and some select select members of his rocket team were taken to the United States as part
of the then secret “Operation Paperclip”. Von Braun worked on the US Army
intermediate range ballistic missile (IRBM) program before his group was
assimilated by NASA. Under NASA he served as director and chief architect of the Saturn V launch vehicle, the superbooster that propelled the Apollo space craft to the moon. According to one NASA source, he is “without
doubt, the greatest rocket scientist in history.” His crowning achievement was to lead the development of the Saturn V booster rocket that that helped land the first men on the moon in July 1969. In 1975 he received the National Medal of Science. The CIC was deeply involved in the Paperclip Operation and our Ozzie Kinat was part of it. Others in our chapter were undoubtably also participants. The discussion then digressed into perations in which the Counterintelligence Corps played a major role. A few that came to mind were the Refugee Program in Europe, Operation Big Switch and the Hungarian Refugee Program. At the same time the CIC was
rooting out guerillas, apprehending spies and doing the monde counter
intelligence duties. (Editor notes: Operation Big Switch and Little Switch delt with the prisoner exchanges as the Korean War ground down. First we “debriefed” our American returning guys in South Korea, then again
on slow boats to San Francisco. Then almost a year later go find them and
see if they told the same story again. I had two operation Big Switch cases
in the third stage. Bob Mann, a member of both the ACICV and NCICA, started on the Refugee Relief Act program while an agent in the 66th
and I followed him as a DAC, as a case review officer Stuttgart Region. ~Stan) Note the floral centerpieces on each table were shamrocks from the Irish Isle.
