|DAR chapter welcomes Chardkoff|
Chief Tusquahoma Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, recently hosted Dr. Richard B. Chardkoff as guest speaker.
He is the author of a book, "World War II Aerial Navigation Training and The Flyboy Heroes of Selman Field."
Chardkoff said that his book is divided into three parts. First the physical facilities, or the lack thereof, the actual training that occurred, and then gathering and preserving the stories of these heroes.
Chardkoff is the L.M. McKneely Endowed Professor in the Humanities at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. He has been at ULM for more than three decades, where he teaches courses in American and Latin America History.
His book, "Sol's Story," an account of a Holocaust survivor, has received several teaching awards and Louisiana Endowment for the Humanities project grants.
He was a recipient of the ULM Research Fellowship to Poland and a Fulbright Fellowship to Argentina. He has served on the Fulbright National Screening Committee for the Caribbean/Central America.
The opening ritual was conducted by Gwen Clark, regent. The president general's message was read by Gail Collins. The national defense report was given by Mary K. Reighney, who also read the minutes of the last meeting.
Chardkoff was introduced by Mary Sue Mitchell.
The flag moment was given by Billie Alderman, Indian moment by Betty Thomas, and the Constitution moment by Clark.
Three delegates and six alternates were elected to attend the state convention in March. They are Gwen Clark, Toni Rodgers, treasurer, and Viola Nugent, registrar.
Alternates elected are Mary K. Reighney, Sue Parker, Barbara Gewin, Gail Collins, Jo Bennett, and Christy Edwards.
Hostesses were Gail Collins and Viola Nugent. Others attending were Mary Davis, Delores Gewin, Wyolene Rainer, Polly Dupuy and guest, Dixie Thomas.
