1944 Our Crosses
by Daisy Bullis Martin

Military conflicts have been, and will continue to be, a part of the history of mankind, as well as a part of the fabric of North American life. What family has not been touched by the drama, debates, and debilitating ravages of political, economic, and religious conflicts? During times of peace or cold war, the men and women of military might have stood ready to defend and maintain, or during an engaged war, secure the ideals of freedom and democracy upon which these United States are founded. Freedom is NOT FREE. Please give honor where honor is due ~ remember our Veterans and support our Troops on Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Patriot Day, Veteran's Day ... every day.

As the LORD God of Heaven admonished the King in the Land of Israel, so we are admonished in each generation in this land of North America: II Chronicles 7 (14) If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (19) But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my commandments, which I have set before you, and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them; (20) Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; ... (22) ... Because they forsook the LORD God of their fathers ... (KJV)

Dear Lu, I enjoyed those articles you sent, & the one about a prisoner of war camp being liberated brought back memories. After we crossed the Rhine River at Remagan & broke out of the bridgehead, we liberated a couple of POW camps. I remember one at Limburg, Germany, where there were Americans, British & French who had been captured in France, many about D-Day, & they came running to our column as we neared the camp, so thin and starved, crying as they came. We gave them all the emergency food we had, & our medics took care of those who needed help. It wasn't a pretty sight. Too bad we have to remember things like that, & we pray that our grandchildren won't have to go thru anything like that. Hope all is well with you. With love, Art
(letter written to Lucie Bullis Forstrom, an aunt of Art Gjertson's wife Betty Martin Gjertson)

MSgt AC Gjertson

October 2011 : MN Minneapolis
There was an article in Sunday's Minneapolis paper regarding the cutting of some health benefits or increasing the costs for military retirees health insurance. With the predicament that the federal government finds itself, I am sure everything has to be on the table. I have heard that some, including lawmakers who have never served, keep asking why military retirees should be treated any differently than the general public, when it comes to the cost of their healthcare. I am a military retiree, so let me tell you why we should be treated differently.

Many years ago, I walked through a door and spoke to a man in a nice uniform. After hearing his presentation, I signed my name on a line and agreed to be trained for a job, and agreed to go 'In Harm's Way' if so ordered; to get shot at and maybe die, as some of my friends did. We did a job that the general public did not want to do, and we stuck around long enough to become the leaders and trainers of men and women who have performed so well over the years in our military. My wife and I went through the separations and moves that go along with a military career, and in a time when we were not called 'heroes'. In exchange for this sacrifice, our Uncle Sam, the Country we so dearly love and would shed blood to defend, made some promises to us. Those promises need to be kept.

A very small percentage of our population goes through that same door, although it is open to everyone. An even smaller percentage remains in for the number of years required to qualify for retirement benefits. Don't ever ask why we should be treated differently.

At the outbreak of World War 1, Elmer (Elmer Rennix Bullis 1890-1965), an Attorney at Law, entered the first Officers Training Camp at Fort Snelling (Minneapolis MN). He was commissioned as a lieutenant, and trained further at Camp Dodge in IA. He was a Major with M Co 351st Infantry Regiment in France at the termination of the war. When World War II threatened, he spent much time in the training of Home Guards in Minneapolis, and when the war broke out he reentered the service, training at Fort Benning in GA, and was commissioned as a Captain. Much of the time of WWII he spent in Chicago as Provost Marshall, where his responsibilities concerned the thousands of service men who came on transfers and furloughs each weekend, and also had to do with prisoners of war in Camp McCoy, WI. He was discharged from service after termination of the war with permanent rank of Lieutenant-Colonel.

Korean War (1950-1953)

Although CMSgt DC Skinner is not a descendant of the Bullis family, his military career crossed paths with then TSgt-MSgt Branch between 1956-1959 at Eglin AFB Florida. The Korean experiences of the two soldiers were as extremely diverse as the years of tour and political-military atmospheres. History is written in the chapters of those whose lives are shaped by the experiences of their times.
