Letters from
his mother
y father was a sergeant in the U.S. Army and served in the
Korean War. He told me that one of his duties was to install
communications lines. Oddly, he didn’t communicate much else
about his wartime service with me. Then again, I didn’t ask him about it
too often either. I always thought if he wanted to talk about it, he would.
I do know that he enlisted so he could enter the service with guys
he knew rather than being drafted. And I know that those young men
he served with became lifelong friends. The Army reunions were events
he looked forward to, and he spoke highly of all whom he served with.
My dad never took a college class. In fact, he didn’t graduate from
high school. Even so, he was one of the smartest men I have ever known.
I learned a great deal from him about business and personal relationships.
He was a master at making most everyone he knew feel good about
themselves, and he claimed his military service helped develop that.
My dad died from bone cancer 10 years ago. In his final weeks, we
spent time at his kitchen table going through old boxes that I didn’t
know existed. Inside were photos from his time in the military and letters that his mother sent him while he served. Even in his final days, he
looked upon those challenging times with fond memories.
As part of our desire to better understand war and those who serve
in it, we dedicate our cover to the stories of two local veterans who
served our country with honor.
Thanks for reading. Q

LOCAL VETERANS RECOUNT
THEIR WARTIME EXPERIENCES
By Michael Swanger
eaders of this publication might recall that
one year ago we interviewed local World
War II veterans to get their perspectives
on the deadliest conflict in human history and the
defining event of the 20th century. This year we
wanted to collect memories from local veterans
who served in the United States military during
the Korean and Vietnam wars.

per and magazine articles, books and films, veterans of the Korean and Vietnam wars have not
received the same recognition for their efforts
over the years.
The Korean War, also known as “The
Forgotten War” because of the lack of public
attention it received both during and after the
war, for many years was never labeled as a
“war.” Instead it was called a “conflict.” Yet ask
those who served during the war, which lasted
from June 1950 to July 1953, and they will tell
you that the 33,686 battle deaths and 2,830 nonbattle deaths that the U.S. military suffered in
Korea suggest that it was more than a “conflict.”
The Vietnam War, which occurred in
Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia from November
1955 to the fall of Saigon in April 1975, received
far more attention from the media and this
country’s citizens compared to the Korean
War. The U.S. government viewed involvement
in the war as a way to prevent a communist
takeover of South Vietnam, but opinions about
our military’s participation varied widely and
created deep divisions among Americans at
home, the likes of which linger today whenever
the topic of the war is raised in conversation.
In the end, 58,220 U.S. service members died in
the war, and many of those who returned home
were protested by anti-war civilians and faced

other life-changing battles as a result.
Recently, two local veterans — John
Erickson and Mike Glover — shared their recollections of the wars and their military service.
Erickson is a Minnesota native who served
in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War and has
been a resident of Windsor Heights since 1960.
He and his wife, Gertrude, have been married for 57 years. Erickson, 83, is retired from
decades of work with Supervalu and Taylor
Industries, having worked as an engineer.
Glover retired in May after working for the
Associated Press as a political reporter for 32
years, having interviewed nearly every presidential candidate to campaign in Iowa during
his tenure with the AP. He was also a regular
contributor on Iowa Public Television’s “Iowa
Press” and prior to working for the AP and
newspapers in Fort Dodge and Bloomington, Ill.,
served in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam
War. The 64-year-old Illinois native, who moved
to Windsor Heights 15 years ago, taught English
to South Vietnamese military officers while stationed at a U.S. base outside of Saigon in 1969.
The following excerpts are taken from
interviews with Erickson and Glover.
In what capacity did you serve in the military during the Korean War?
www.iowalivingmagazines.com/windsorheights
Erickson: I was in the Navy from 1948 to 1952.
When I enlisted, I was a Seaman Recruit. I went
to boot camp in Illinois and was transferred to
Maryland where I became a Naval Airman. You
either go on a boat or to an airport or some
place. You didn’t have a lot of say about it. I
was with a photography unit for five months,
then they sent me to a small aircraft carrier, a
CVL, in Rhode Island. That was kind of fun; you
could go up to New York or Boston when you
had liberty.
After a few months, I got transferred to
Memphis for Navy mechanics training where I
became a machinist. I went to aviation machinist school for about four months and attained
my highest rank of AM, an Aviation Machinist’s
Mate. From there I was aboard the USS Boxer
CV, a full-sized carrier that was the first aircraft
carrier — and ours was the first squadron — to
have jets on a carrier.
Tell me more about your time on the
USS Boxer.
Erickson: It carried F4U Corsairs and F-9 jets.
This was in 1950 or probably 1951. They all had
wingtip gas tanks. I was a plane captain, and part
of my duties was to fill that damn thing up with
gas. They’d park mine at the end of the deck,
and I had to climb a ladder to fill it up. They

would start to turn the ship, and I’d look over the side and see
nothing but water. I got a banged-up ear out of it from running
around the back of those damn planes; they were noisier than
hell.
How long and where were you stationed overseas?
Erickson: I was in the Sea of Japan for about seven months after
they extended my enlistment. When we were at sea, we were
busy all the time, preparing planes to fly bombing missions in
North Korea. We had planes flying out three times a day, each
for about an hour-and-a-half at a time. You weren’t just sitting
out there; you had work to do.
How close were you to Korea?
Erickson: We were probably in the middle of the Sea of Japan.
Once in a while, we’d have a plane go around and make an
approach and it would dump into the sea and a helicopter would
pick them up right away. But we weren’t close to the enemy.
When the boat would hit dock, we were in the bars and we
had fun. You had work to do every morning at 8 a.m. but for 10
days we would be docked and had fun, then it was back out to
sea for a month on missions.
John Erickson served as an Aviation Machinist’s Mate aboard the USS Boxer CV during the
Korean War, a small aircraft carrier much like the one pictured here.
How did the war change you?
Erickson: It made me grow up. I didn’t have any regrets of
being in the service, but I’d be damned to go back in. I had some
fun, and the Navy grew me up.

the time?
Erickson: They didn’t even know we were
gone. When we got home, they didn’t say
anything to us. At the time, the country was in
such growth, they didn’t even call it a war. They
called it the Korean Conflict. We didn’t expect
parades or pats on the back, but I think the
public really didn’t give a damn about the war.
But that didn’t bother us; we didn’t give a damn
about it either.
I don’t mean to put it down because we lost
a lot of people, but the war itself didn’t seem to
affect us as a country.
In what capacity did you serve in the U.S.
military during the Vietnam War?
Glover: Like many people in that era, I enlisted
when my draft number came up in 1968. I was
19 years old and had an unsuccessful attempt
at college. So I enlisted in the Air Force and
was sent to St. Louis where I was inducted into
the military. Then they sent me to Laughlin Air
Force Base in Texas for basic training and then
AIP and language training school.
What happened next?
Glover: They sent me overseas where I taught
English and training to Vietnamese officers. I was
in several places, including an air base outside of
Saigon. I was a staff sergeant, and I taught for a
little over a year in 1969.
What was it like training them?
Glover: It was fine. In that country, at that
time, people who were to become military
officers generally were on a path to having a
successful life. They were motivated and pretty
easy to work with.
Did you find any common ground with
the men you trained?
Glover: They were motivated to speak, and I
was motivated to get through the year.
Did you experience any combat?
Glover: No, but Vietnam was a funny war.
Everybody saw combat because combat was
everywhere. I didn’t have it as bad as a lot of
people, but I had what I had.
Can you elaborate? Were you in eminent
danger while stationed on the base?
Glover: It was dangerous because the Viet
Cong were waging urban war. Saigon was an
armed city with an enormous military presence,
and the Viet Cong held much of the ground
around the city. This was right after the TET
Offensive in 1968 where they attacked major
cities around the country. Their tactic was to
convince the U.S. not to continue with the war,
and one way to do that was to attack in places
they weren’t expected to be attacked.

John Erickson, a resident of Windsor Heights since 1960, served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War.
What effect did that have on you?
Glover: It was an experience where people
just wanted to survive. There was very little talk
of winning or accomplishing a goal. They just
wanted to do their thing and survive.
How did the war change you?
Glover: It made me more focused to pursue
something. I had been kind of drifting along, not
knowing what I wanted to do.
Did your experience in Vietnam spark
your interest in journalism?
Glover: It did. I started thinking of ways to
contribute, and journalism seemed like a good
way to go. When I came back, I was at an air
base in Illinois doing a variety of administrative
jobs before I got discharged. After that I went
back to college and got a degree in journalwww.iowalivingmagazines.com/windsorheights
ism and political science from Western Illinois
University.
What do you remember the most
about your service in Vietnam?
Glover: Probably the senselessness of it.
There was not a good reason for us to be
there, and that was painfully apparent to everybody. We didn’t have a goal in mind, and it
was frustrating. It was a bad experience while I
was there, and a bad experience when I came
home. But it gave me the motivation to make
something of myself.
What do you want future generations
to know about the war?
Glover: That we did the best we could in a
bad situation, and the people who did it can’t be
blamed for the mistakes of what happened. Q

Q: What options do I have for
replacing missing teeth?
A: There is nothing more devastating to a smile than lost or missing
teeth. There are multiple ways today to replace missing teeth both functionally (biting, chewing, speaking and laughing) as well as cosmetically.
Dental implants are perhaps today’s ultimate tooth replacement systems providing “stand alone” teeth, unconnected to other teeth. While
a dental implant replaces the root of a tooth, the crown atop the implant
(the tooth you see in your mouth) is an exact replica of a natural tooth.
Therefore implants provide for cosmetic tooth replacements, emerging
through the gum tissues just like natural teeth, and can be made to match
the neighboring teeth exactly. You’d never know they’re not your own,
then again — they are.
We are always a bit perplexed when we see the dowdy “before”
pictures right next to the great “after” ones. You know, the ones with
the new hairdo, the cleanly-shaven guy and the girl with the fresh lipstick
smile, but let’s face it — thye do make a difference. These changes truly
are cosmetic, and as we have illustrated, dentistry can do its part. But
the biggest part is not just how your smile looks, it’s how you feel when
you show it. Even if you smile when you’re on the telephone, you will
touch the person on the other end of the line. Q

CELEBRATING
Premarital

Protect your assets and guarantee inheritance
By Ross Barnett, attorney, Abendroth and Russell Law
Firm
remarital agreements (also
called “ante-nuptial” agreements) are legally-binding
contracts entered into by an
engaged couple prior to marriage.
Prenuptial agreements accomplish
the twin goals of asset protection
and guaranteeing inheritance by
children of a prior marriage. They
can be vital estate-planning and
wealth-preservation tools.
These agreements are typically neutral. That is, they give each
party the same rights and treat
both identically. They can allow
a person to keep pre-marriage
assets as separate from a new marriage as the parties desire. They to keep the assets he or she
can also allow a spouse to protect brought into the marriage. The
his or her children’s interests in joint property acquired after the
marriage generally is split equally
their inheritance more effectively.
Marriage confers certain rights upon divorce, just as if there were

on Geier says he got in
trouble a lot as a kid
for drawing on the walls.
Though he only ever utilized his
artistic ability as a hobby, restoring an old carousel horse and
antique signs, he eventually gave
in to his childhood dream and
began painting murals on the walls
of his home.
“Something was always in my
head that I wanted to paint on
walls,” he says.
He started in the laundry
room, “Something simple” he
says, but the scene of a woman
hanging laundry next to his washing machine is anything but simple.
“I do it just like a child does
a coloring book,” Geier says. “I
draw it out, the whole thing, and
then I paint. But then I come back
and put in shading.”
Every room in his house has
murals; every room has a theme.
The theme in the garage is cars.
The first painting he did in his
garage is a picnic scene. He says
half of the mural was inspired by a
Coca-Cola ad while the other was
inspired by a jigsaw puzzle. He put
the images together to create one
big scene.
D
Once the drawing was done,
he had to paint it, which he says
was intimidating. He’d never done
a painting that large and didn’t
know where to start.
“This was the first day we
were bombing Iraq, so I said, ‘You
know what, I think I’ll start right
here with this flag,’ ” he says.
Across the garage is a replica
of a photo of the coalmine that
was just a few blocks from Geier’s
house.
The mine in the photo was
run down, so Geier used a little
imagination to bring it back to life,
adding a line of people waiting to
apply for jobs and kids rolling a
ball of coal. He has even incorporated codes into almost all of his
paintings.
“It’s like ‘The DaVinci Code,’ ”
he laughs. The coal mine has his old
phone number when he was a child,
Fairfax-4786. The car in the picnic
mural has his house number and the
year and state where he was born
on the license plate.
“I’m not a real artist,” Geier
says. “I suppose if some art
instructor came they’d say that’s
all wrong, but I don’t know that,
so I just go ahead and do it.” Q

A: Our first president was plagued with
dental difficulties, losing most of his teeth
to periodontal (gum) disease while still in
his 20s. Contrary to popular belief, though,
Washington never had wooden dentures.
They were made from gold, elephant ivory,
hippopotamus tusk and human teeth. A set is
on display at Mount Vernon, his Virginia home.
Modern dentures are commonly made with
acrylic and porcelain.
One of Washington’s dentists was a fellow
named John Greenwood. In 1790, Greenwood adapted his mother’s
foot-operated spinning wheel to create the first-known dental drilling
machine. Washington lost his teeth long before 1913, the year the phrase
“dental hygiene” was coined in Bridgeport, Conn., where Dr. Alfred
Civilion Fones started a school of hygiene. The school remains in operation today as part of the University of Bridgeport.
The earliest known reference of a dentist, by the way, dates to 2600
B.C. An inscription on the tomb of an Egyptian scribe named Hesy-Re
calls him “the greatest of those who deal with teeth.” The practice of
dentistry has come a long way. Q

“My favorite part of this age is
their creativity and independence,”
she says. “I can give them a task,

expect in return. It’s always a good
surprise with this age.”

Music in the Park wraps up succesful year
Perfect weather greeted both the opening and closing Music in the
Park concerts, with a variety of hot weather for concerts in between.
More than 800 people enjoyed the June 12 opening concert and heard a
reprise of the Ralph Zarnow Orchestra, directed by Dan Hartzer. The
next highest attendance came on July 31 when 600 people welcomed
the brass band from Altenmedingen, Germany. Two hundred people
enjoyed the German supper preceding the concert and had an opportunity to converse with the German guests. The sold-out supper was
catered by Taste to Go Catering and Events whose owners provided
the food at their cost. Attendance at the other concerts ranged from 60
at the special July 1 Sunday afternoon concert held in the Community
and Events Center, to 400, depending on how high the temperature was.
Walnut Creek Community Church opened it facilities on the hot July 24
evening for the concert by Hold On.
The Windsor Heights Foundation Board of Directors is grateful to
the individuals and other entities whose financial support made these
concerts possible. Music in the Park concerts were underwritten by
donors to the Windsor Heights Foundation annual fund, donations by
concert attendees and grants from the Iowa Foundation for Education,
Environment and the Arts, Polk County Community Betterment, Prairie
Meadows Community Betterment, and BRAVO Greater Des Moines.
The Polk County grant also included funds to provide complimentary
tickets to the German supper for the guests from Germany.
The Aug. 7 concert by the Greater Des Moines Community Band
was underwritten by the Windsor Heights Lions Club. The Lions Club
again furnished free snow cones; Bankers Trust, free beverages; and the
Windsor Heights Foundation, free popcorn. In-kind support came from
the City of Windsor Heights, with logistical help from the City Public
Works department. Door prizes were provided by Klassic Kids Child
Development, Windsor Heights Dairy Queen, Grounds for Celebration,
Matt Cale State Farm Insurance Agency, Premium Solutions, Nail Trust
and Mustard’s Restaurant.
Concert attendees responded generously to an appeal by Eagle
Scout candidate Mark Fowler for funds to construct a flower garden
in front of the new VA Hospital building as his project for that award.
Fowler, a Windsor Heights resident, is a regular Music in the Park volunteer.
The 2013 Music in the Park concert series will begin June 11 and will
include another great line-up of performing groups. Q

Pumpkin cake
Baking takes center stage during fall season
By Beth McDonald
here is a hint of fall in the
air, which has me planning
for the holiday season.
I know it is early to be thinking
of the holidays, but if I don’t start
planning now, I won’t get everything done. All of the magazines
are showing Thanksgiving turkeys
and holiday cookies. This is truly
my favorite time of year because
baking takes center stage. Just
thinking about all the pies, cakes
and cookies I can get started on puts me in a good mood. I really enjoy
reviewing the recipes I made last year for the holidays, deciding what
will be on the list again this year and looking for new recipes to fill the
void for those that didn’t make the cut. Some things I am considering
this year include caramel brownies, pumpkin pie with a streusel top and
a cranberry cake.
Last year I made a pumpkin cake, so I dusted off the recipe, made
a couple of tweaks to it and made cupcakes instead. To change this
recipe, I reviewed several different pumpkin pie recipes for the right
combination of allspice and cloves and debated about adding nutmeg and
cinnamon. I ended up using allspice and cloves in the cake and made a
cinnamon butter cream frosting. Enjoy! Q

where we live
Karen and Karl Tandy have landscaped their home with
many flowering and seasonal plants.
Tropic escape
Tandys have created lush oasis in their yard
By Rainey Cook
aren and Karl Tandy’s home
on Allison Avenue is full of
tasteful surprises.
As you approach the front
door, the light scent of sweet
autumn clematis fills the air. The
entire front yard is layered with
greens, blooming seasonal flowers
and leaves falling from the big ash
tree. It’s a beautiful time of year
for this beautiful front yard.
But wait, there’s more. Inside
this mid-1960s split-foyer home
is a clean, crisp look and feel. A
near-perfect decorating style with
books positioned beside chairs,
dining room seat covers placed to
a tee and living room seating easy
for conversation creates an inviting atmosphere.
The two-sided white brick fireplace is evidence of 1960s architecture. The updated light, creamy
painted walls and modern, medium-green chairs are perfect energy
for this couple on the move.
“It’s very comfortable,” says
Karen. “We’ve repainted, redecorated and added all the landscaping, flowers and plants outside
over the last several years.”
Once through the sliding
doors, you find yourself in the
gazebo on the deck. It’s the tropical feel with sheer curtains pulled
to each side and large-leaf plants
that look as though their leaves
K
are big enough to fan you should
you get sweat on your brow.
This seems a peaceful place
to go over the day’s happenings
and anticipate tomorrow’s. Below
this deck your gaze takes you to
a wonderful tropic escape… or a
pool party for a bunch of chatty
girlfriends who really do gather
here every Thursday and have for
many years.
This therapeutic backyard has
smartly-built layers of used concrete from an old driveway. Its
terrace design allows this space to
soar to its maximum potential.
The entire backyard is encased
in chain link fence which is covered with sweet autumn clematis,
so the backyard smells good, too.
Within this area are the numerous
ideas, inspirations and flowering
beauties that only a master gardener could imagine.
Your eyes gaze and stop at a
fascinating large green pot filled
with baby tut grass, and then you
gaze to the beautiful blue water
in the pool, then off to the many
perennials. The color and depth
that Karen has mastered in this
space is amazing.
A busy couple lives here. They
entertain 16 grandchildren and have
35 people over for potlucks. This
couple loves their home and they
love living in Windsor Heights. Q

The conversation all
couples should have
Talking about life insurance can be tough
By Matt Cale, State Farm agent
f asked, most couples would say
it's important to protect the
financial future of their families
in the event of a spouse’s unexpected death.
Yet 74 percent of couples
rarely or never discuss the topic
of life insurance as part of their
financial planning strategy, according to a 2010 State Farm® Life
Insurance Study. A 2011 study
from finance research firm LIMRA
revealed that 41 percent of U.S.
adults don't even have life insurance.
That doesn’t mean it's not on
their minds. Sixty-two percent of
respondents said uncertainty in
the economy makes having life
insurance even more important
than it had previously been.
Bringing up the subject can be
difficult. It may be that discussing
the unexpected death of a spouse
is awkward. Or that one spouse
already feels the pressure of being
the primary wage earner. Or that
a spouse who has recently lost
a job will react negatively to the
topic.
But whatever the obstacles,
talking about life insurance is critical to both partners — even if
one earns substantially more than
the other, or one doesn't earn an
income. To start the discussion,
try these tips:

Record-breaking
golf event
Attendance, participation were over the top
www.iowalivingmagazines.com
By Betty Ridout, president, Windsor Heights Chamber
ave you heard? The
Windsor Heights Annual
Golf outing on Sept. 12
was a record-breaking success.
There were almost 100 golfers
in attendance, and we had a significant boost in sponsorships along
with an afternoon of networking
and fun at Waveland Golf Course.
It makes me think of the concept of the “10,000 hours rule”
from Malcolm Gladwell’s book
“Outliers,” where he notes that it
takes 10,000 accumulated hours of
doing something to become truly
proficient at it. If we embrace that
idea, then the Windsor Heights
Chamber and our generous sponsors and donors have not only
been successful, but we are well
on the way for successful collaboration for years to come.
This was well demonstrated at
our Windsor Heights Annual Golf
outing, where area merchants and
professionals stepped up to the
tee to enjoy a friendly afternoon
of golfing fun, camaraderie and
support for the Windsor Heights
Chamber. With record attendance
and fundraising participation, we
broke all prior records with the
generous donations from our “ProSponsors:” Action Reprographics,
Windsor Heights Hy-Vee, Walmart,
3E, Bankers Trust and GE Lighting.
There was also participation from
our “Semi-Pro Sponsors:” Alliance
Technologies, Dairy Queen - Bart
Warford, Edward Jones - Matt
Kneifl, Holmes Murphy, The
Ridgemont, TR’s Sports Bar and the
City of Windsor Heights. Amateur:
State Farm – Matt Cale, Premium
Solutions, Grinnell Mutual, Sam’s
Club, Iowa Living magazine. Other
merchants also stepped up to
donate their time and many prizes
for our raffle.
