Eagle Archive ExploreCarroll.com: PFC Ronald Kenny, 18, Binh Dinh province Feb. 19, 1966 by Kevin Dayhoff http://kevindayhoffwestgov-net.blogspot.com/2013/05/eagle-archive-explorecarrollcom-pfc_27.html

This Memorial Day we remember the service and sacrifice of a fallen son of Carroll, Ronald M. Kenny http://kevindayhoffwestgov-net.blogspot.com/2013/05/eagle-archive-explorecarrollcom-pfc_27.html

My Memorial Day column this Sunday in the Carroll County section of the Baltimore Sun, http://www.baltimoresun.com/explore/carroll/, is Ron Kenny, a 1965 graduate from Robert Moton High School and the first son of Carroll to be killed in Vietnam… http://kevindayhoffwestgov-net.blogspot.com/2013/05/eagle-archive-explorecarrollcom-pfc.html


In past Carroll Eagle Archives columns we have shared the stories of some of the eighteen fallen heroes from the Vietnam War who faces are etched in the black granite memorial in the Carroll County Vietnam Memorial Park on Willis Street.

The stories of Frederick John Magsamen, Christopher Jesse Miller, Jr., Stanley Groomes, Joseph William Blickenstaff, Herbert Eugene Mulkey, Jr., James Norman Byers and Sherman E. Flanagan, Jr., have been told.

I cannot imagine what Private Kenny went through. He was light weapons grunt and left Mount Airy Maryland in the idealistic mid-1960s to be dropped into the Battle of Battle of Ia Drang and then right into the Battle of Bong Son… Up against the NVA 22nd and the the Sao Vang - Yellow Star – Division, 2nd VC Main Force Regiment…

On November 17, 1966, the 7th Cavalry 2nd Battalion lost 150 American soldiers in 16 hours at LZ Albany northwest of Plei Me in the Central Highlands – 35 miles from Pleiku…

Kenny was killed in action in the ‘Iron Triangle’ region of Binh Dinh province, in Vietnam Feb. 19, 1966, along with Sgt. Elzie Jefferson Collins, Jr., and Sgt. Freddie Wallace Green. This was soon after the Battle of Bong Son – Operation Irving, January 28 to February 12, 1966.

Bong Son was essentially the second major battle of the war, not that long after the 5th Cavalry had been engaged in the Battle of Ia Drang, November 14-18, 1965, also in Binh Dinh. Many know Binh Dinh as where An Khe and Camp Radcliff were located – not far from Camp Holloway airfield at Pleiku.

Kenny had entered the Army following graduation. In November 1965 he was stationed in central-coastal Vietnam in an area remembered for its heavy combat and high American casualties at the time.

Kenny was deployed with C Company, 1st Battalion, 5th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division; which can trace its roots as far back as 1855, when it was organized and deployed in Texas in the Native American Plains Wars. The 5th Calvary regiment participated in twelve campaigns in Vietnam.

The area known as the Iron Triangle was a heavily fortified position about 12-miles below Bong Son in the hills south and east of the Kim Son Valley, and was defended by a combined Viet Cong (VC) – North Vietnamese Army (NVA) force that included the Sao Vang - Yellow Star – Division, 2nd VC Main Force Regiment, and the acclaimed NVA 22nd Regiment.

We remember PFC Kenny. God Bless him. Memorial Day is important…

Very little has been written about Private First Class (PFC) Kenny. In my research I came across a You Tube, “An Khe, Vietnam; “Films of 1st Cavalry Air Mobile at An Khe, Vietnam, filmed between December 1965 and January 1966…” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UD81o3yYwV0

“Films of 1st Cavalry (Air Mobile) at An Khe, Vietnam, filmed between December 1965 and January 1966. Films were done as part of a briefing for the Army leadership.”

The Spiritual Practice of Shredding Stuff by Kevin E. Dayhoff May 15, 2013

The Spiritual Practice of Shredding Stuff by Kevin E. Dayhoff May 15, 2013

Last month my wife and I left our house in the wee-hours of the morning and joined other households in Carroll County for the shared experience of putting box after box of old documents in a large ravenous shredder-truck which devoured the paper voraciously.

It was quite a liberating experience. Of course, there was a certain irony in the ritualistic-feeding of the paper-eating monster truck sponsored by the Carroll County Office of Recycling.

The vast majority of my papers to be recycled are from the 40 or so years I served on local, county or state boards, committees or commissions – for many years, as an elected official – all of which were accompanied by bringing home boxes of papers, documents and records. It was only fitting and proper that I ‘give’ the papers back to the county.

The further irony is that many of those 40+-years were served on various committees and commissions which focused on the environment, municipal solid waste, agriculture, forestry, water and wastewater treatment – and recycling.

I, for one, am quite thankful for the shredding service. The recycling office reported that we were one of 316 other households that made the trek to the county maintenance facility.

The paper shredder in my office only allows me to feed it up to 16 pages at a time. At that rate, it would take me about two hours to shred one box full of papers. The county shredding service saved me days of mind-numbing work.

As I discussed in my column in TheTentacle.com on June 20 last year, “Fighting the ‘Stuff Monster,” goals are simply tools to focus one’s energy in positive directions. These goals can change as one’s priorities change and new ones are added, and others dropped.

One of the several priorities I have established in recent years is to greatly simplify my life and cut-out as much of the clutter as possible… Please read more here: http://www.thetentacle.com/ShowArticle.cfm?mydocid=5780

Eagle Archives: Standard, aka junk, mail goes back to 19th century http://tinyurl.com/oye7pyo





The nation's first countywide free rural postal delivery service got off to a shaky and contested start Dec. 20, 1896, in Carroll County.

According to multiple media accounts, including the Baltimore Sun, "One of the first pick-ups postal clerk Edwin Shriver had on the inaugural day of Carroll County's Rural Free Delivery service was a greased pig…"

"I'm sure he (the customer) did it as a joke," said Shriver. "But I slapped a 42-cent stamp on its rump and delivered it. That pig squealed the whole way."

A little over three years later, Charles Emory Smith, the 39th postmaster general of the United States and a journalist by trade, visited Westminster on April 30, 1900.



If Smith were to come back today, he would find the current state of affairs of the Postal Service look more like that haze produced by the forest fire.
These days, the future beautiful vista at the post office is less than clear, if my last visit there is any indication.

After I opened my box, I let out a squeal much like that of that greased pig in December of 1896. I quickly realized that I had once again fallen prey to the modern scourge upon the postal system that has significantly impacted our lives today, junk mail, or as it is politely referred to by the postal system, "standard mail."


Don't complain about the flood of unsolicited mail. "The Postal Service is hoping to deliver even more," according to an article in the New York Times last September.

"Faced with multibillion-dollar losses and significant declines in first-class mail, the post office is cutting deals with businesses and direct mail marketers to increase the number of sales pitches they send by standard mail…"

Now isn't that just special … Unbelievable… http://tinyurl.com/oye7pyo

Kevin Dayhoff - The Tentacle: Fighting the “Stuff Monster”




There comes a time in a person’s life when one needs to get a fresh supply of trash bags, buy a new heavy-duty paper shredder, back the pick-up truck to the basement door, get out the large party-size coffee maker, and clear the clutter.


For me, periodically fighting the “Stuff Monster” has been a survival tool – or I would have been the tragic-lead character in a serial reality horror show on hoarding a long time ago.

Yet, in my personal journey of a life-long struggle with the “Stuff Monster,” the deck has always been stacked against me.

For, you see, my situation has been exacerbated by the fact that I have been self-employed all my life. Many colleagues have been able to fight the “Stuff Monster” much more easily because all the filing cabinets full of papers and pallets of boxes in records storage, has been the responsibility of their respective employers.

Well, with me – since the late 1960s – I’ve been my own employer and keeping records, documents and stuff has always been my responsibility.

And, of course, for the last 35 or so years, in addition to art and farming, I have continuously served on any number of local, county or state boards, committees or commissions – and for many years, as an elected official – all of which was accompanied by my bringing home papers, documents and records by the wheelbarrow load.

[….]


I am trying to go as paperless as possible.

My paperless initiative is in part, because technology has advanced to the point that I can now handle many office and administrative functions more efficiently - without paper.

However, my reasons for going as paperless as possible are in part, as a matter of practicality. Above and beyond the fact that we travel a lot and are simply not at home to get hardcopy paper-mail at our post office box; at my advanced age, handling mountains of paper day-in and day-out has not gotten any easier.

Curiously, after almost 40-years of office administration, if you hand me a piece of paper, in several hours, I have no clue as to where it is. However, I always seem to be able to find electronic paperwork… Caroline will tell you that I have come to like reading online so much that I scan-in letters and writing-newspaper-research materials just so that I can read it on the computer…

Moreover, a large part of my decision to go paperless is a product of my environmental activism, which in part springs forth from faith beliefs…

Whatever - - I am a geek and although a few electrons may be inconvenienced; paperless is far more efficient…

That said, LOL – the initiative sure has had some interesting moments – and a few profound failures; however, it has been for the most part, quite successful…

May 19 was Pentecost Sunday by Kevin E. Dayhoff May 22, 2013 http://tinyurl.com/q4sk774



Last Sunday was Pentecost Sunday; the 50 day after Easter and the birthday of the church. Along with Easter and Christmas, Pentecost is one of the three most important holidays in the church. It’s time to renew the spirit of Pentecost in our daily lives. Here’s why.

Pentecost has many meanings, which are, in essence, really only different parts of the same elephant. The English word ‘Pentecost’ is actually a transliteration of the Greek word ‘pentekostos,’ which means ‘fifty.’

It is one of the oldest holidays in the church. Its roots may be traced to the Jewish Feast of Weeks, or Shavuot, (as is referred to in Exodus 34:22, Deuteronomy 16:10,) which is celebrated 50 days after God passed down the Torah, which included the Ten Commandments to the assembled nation of Israel at Mount Sinai. This year Shavuot took place May 14 – May 16, 2013.

There are those who believe that the Jewish faith borrowed the holiday from ancient pagan rituals which celebrated the death of winter and a spirit of (spring) renewal.

In the Bible, Pentecost is mentioned in St. Paul's letter to a troubled church, the First Letter to the Corinthians 16:8. “But I will stay in Ephesus until Pentecost…”

On my recent trip to Greece, I had the honor of standing in the marketplace at the very spot where it is believed Paul spoke to the turbulent crowds in Corinth. Thousands of years later, we must redouble our efforts to carry the example of Paul forward to address our troubled times.

Pentecost is also mentioned in the Acts of the Apostles in Chapter 20, verse 16: “For Paul had decided to sail past Ephesus, so that he might not have to spend time in Asia; for he was hastening to be at Jerusalem, if possible, on the day of Pentecost.”

Pentecost Sunday marks the end of the Easter season on the Christian calendar. Pentecost Monday – the first Monday after the celebration of Pentecost is celebrated as a holiday in many countries, most notably, in England.

The story of the first Pentecost is told by Acts 2; when people had gathered in Jerusalem for the Jewish festival, the Feast of Weeks.

It was during Pentecost Sunday, 10 days after the ascension of Christ, when the Holy Spirit descended upon the Twelve Disciples and followers of Jesus. Today, Pentecost is the important celebration of that fateful day when the Apostles were bestowed the gifts to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to all peoples and nations.

According to Acts 2: 2-4: “… please click here to read more: http://www.thetentacle.com/ShowArticle.cfm?mydocid=5790
