ASTP MEMORIAL PLAQUE DEDICATION
One of our ASTP class
Bob Enterline, suggested that it might be a fitting gesture for living
survivors to place a plaque at North Texas State Teachers College (now
the University of North Texas), honoring members of our ASTP Unit (ASTU
3890) who subsequently lost their lives serving with the 103d Infantry
Dr. Andrew Setliff and
Evans spent the better part of a year attempting to identify the men
were in that unit. It was a daunting task because the University's
considered us as individual students, not as members of a military
Nevertheless, they identified nearly two hundred of those who had been
in our unit, and succeeded in obtaining addresses and phone numbers of
thirty six survivors. Since then, a few more have been located.
also determined that another dozen or so survived the war but had
passed away. It is probable that many others are now deceased, .... one
of the reasons they ran into so many dead ends in their search.
They determined that ten
of our classmates had been killed in action and while they cannot be
that they have identified all who made the ultimate sacrifice, they are
now reasonably confident that they have identified all of those who
serving in the 103d Infantry Division. Those killed in action were Tom
Lutze, Harold Class, Harold Burkhead, Bayard "BD" Dodge, Carl
Daniel Gasch, Al Lamb, Bill Lang, Ed Luebke, and John Seay.
Meanwhile Bob Enterline
explored the cost and availability of an appropriate memorial, made a
to Denton to discuss our project with the Chancellor of the University
and worked out a schedule for the installation, dedication, and
of the memorial plaque. The plaque was paid for by surviving classmates
of these men.
The dedication ceremony,
took place at 11:00 A.M. on June 30, 1997, around the flagpole in front
of the University Union Building on the campus of the University of
Texas. Participating in the ceremony preceding the unveiling were
Robert Enterline, Pierce Evans, John Donlan, Dr. Andrew Setliffe,
all former members of ASTU 3890. Other participants were Alfred F.
PhD, Chancellor of the University of North Texas and the University of
North Texas Health Science Center at Fort Worth and President of the
of North Texas. Many individuals were involved in the planning,
Blaine A. Brownell, PhD, Provost and Vice President for Academic
David Shrader, DMA, Interim Vice President for Development, other
officials, and the officers of the ROTC Unit.
At the end of the outdoor
Dr. Setliffe gave the Invocation.
The ROTC Color Guard
lowered the flag to half mast while a trumpeter played Taps.
The assembled people then
into the University Union Building where the plaque was unveiled by Bob
Enterline. It is in Memorial Hall beside a much larger plaque
names of many individuals who were killed in action in several wars
attending UNT. Some of the names on our plaque were missing from the
plaque so they are now properly honored in Memorial Hall.
The caption on the plaque
