19 April ELT Search and Resolution
Here are the edited contents from a 20 April 2016 email from Maj Hormosky (MSWG
DOS) summarizing AFRCC Mission 15-M-0189 on 19-20 Apr 2016.
AFRCC opened this mission and contacted MSWG DOS at ~2005z Sunday Apr. 19th.
Reported multiple Pireps of a 121.5 ELT in vicinity of LBY VOR [6 NM NNW of
Hattiesburg].
Pinebelt Squadron (MS-072 Hattiesburg) was contacted and a telephone search was
initiated to PIB [Hattiesburg-Laurel Regional Airport] and HBG (Bobby L Chain
Municipal Airport, Hattiesburg] with no ELT heard. No mission capable aircraft was
available at Hattiesburg and I contacted Wing HQ at Jackson. Capt Eichelberger and SM
Adams responded rapidly and were airborne at 00:10z.
Airborne comms were established thru the Biloxi repeater and a ELT was detected and
DF’d to Mize, Ms. where a red Cessna was spotted just off Hwy’s 35 and 28.
Aircraft was determined to be from an earlier [previous day] forced landing and the
aircrew had returned to base.
A ground team from James McKinnie Composite Squadron (MS-100 Jackson) was
dispatched to the site this morning and after some delays due to traffic and municipal
office closures were able to enter the aircraft which was still in an inverted position, and
silenced the ELT.
The ground team reported they had returned to base successfully at 18:13z and AFRCC
was contacted to complete mission.

1942-1945 Revisited – Columbus, MS

Ask Rufus, Columbus Dispatch, Sunday, May 10, 2015, Page 2A
Columbus Mississippi

A personal story
My daughter, Sarah called me on Friday to tell me that she was on her way to the mall
in Washington, D.C., so that my grandchildren, Harper and Sykes, could see the fly over
of vintage aircraft commemorating the defeat of Germany and victory in Europe 70 years
ago. She wanted the children to see the airplanes that their great-grandparents, my
parents, flew during World War II.
The end of April and the beginning of May mark dates that bring to mind stories of
my parents. My father, Rufus Ward Sr., was a tail gunner on Smokey Stover Jr., a B-17
bomber shot down over Frankfort, Germany, on May 12, 1944. He was captured and held
as a German POW until he was liberated on April 26, 1945. Today being Mother’s Day

12

brings to mind my mother, Ida Billups Ward, who worked at Columbus Army Air Field
[Columbus, Mississippi] during World War II and flew a Piper Cub in the Civil Air
Patrol. Both of those planes were to be in Friday’s Washington flyover.
Like so many other members of the “Greatest Generation,” my parents reacted
immediately when Pearl Harbor was bombed on Dec. 7, 1941. My father was living in
Washington, D.C., where he was attending George Washington University and working
as a clerk for the FBI. He immediately enlisted in the Army Air Corps. My mother was
attending Virginia State College (now Longwood University) and came back to
Columbus, going to work at the Columbus Army Air Field Hospital.
My father would seldom talk about his war time experiences and when I would ask
him about them he always just said “that there were so many stories of heroism that were
unknown outside of the POW camps because those stories could not be passed along and
were thus lost to time.” It was not until after he died that I found out his story was one of
them.
It was only about a month after my father died that I started learning his story. A letter
from a member of his crew appeared in the 96th Bomb Group Historical Association
newsletter describing what he had done. Several years later I heard from Chief Justice
Sharon Lee of the Tennessee Supreme Court, whose father, Charles Lee, was a waist
gunner on Smokey Stover Jr. In 2002, Manuel Van Eyck published “Silent Heroes,” a
book about Air Crews lost in air operations over occupied Czechoslovakia, my father was
listed in the book’s acknowledgments.
On May 12, 1944, my father was a staff sergeant and the tail gunner on Smokey
Stover Jr., a B-17 from the 337th Squadron of the 96th Bomb Group based at Snetterton
Heath, England. That day his bomb group was on a mission to bomb oil refineries at
Brüx, and Zwickau, Czechoslovakia. Near Frankfort Germany, the squadron was attacked
by about 50 German fighters. Smokey Stover Jr. was heavily damaged – its left wing was
almost shot away and two engines were on fire. A lost aircraft report stated that “left
wing destroyed and went down out of control.” Communications had been cut to the tail,
and Ward did not hear the pilot’s orders to bail out. He was still firing his 50 cal. guns at
a German fighter when he suddenly saw his pilot and co-pilot parachute past his window.
He went to his escape hatch to bail out but saw the waist gunner and the ball turret gunner
lying wounded further inside the airplane. He crawled into the waist of the out-of-control
plane and assisted each of them with their parachutes, helping them out of the aircraft
before he bailed out. Justice Sharon Lee related what her father had told her happened
when Smokey Stover Jr. was shot down: “The pilot rang the bell and ordered everyone to
bail out of the plane but he (Charles Lee) lay unconscious. The tail-gunner of the plane,
Rufus Ward, would not leave him and worked with him as the plane was going down. He
saved Charles’ life by placing a parachute on him and getting him out the door.”
My mother Ida Billups Ward was in College when the U.S. entered the war. She left
college and went to work at the Columbus Army Air Field base hospital in the spring of
1942. She also joined the Civil Air Patrol, where she was the first girl from Lowndes
County to solo. She flew a Piper Cub. The most poignant story I heard her tell concerned
an enjoyable date she had with a pilot from the base one Sunday. She and her cousin
Emmaline Hardy had a double date with two pilots. They all had a delightful time and
decided to all go back out together the next weekend. The next week while working at the
base hospital she learned that both pilots had been killed in an accident. On a much

13

lighter note, my mother said she quit being a pilot after she was dispatched to
Birmingham alone in a Piper Cub, a small single engine two seat plane that had a top air
speed of only about 85 mph. She got stuck in a lengthy holding pattern over the
Birmingham airport with a number of large fast four engine aircraft. She said it scared her
half to death, so she turned around and flew back to Columbus.
The 70th anniversary of VE day is a time for all of us to reflect on the sacrifices of
those in the “greatest generation” and all who have served their country. It is also a
reminder that every family has stories that need to be preserved and if we don’t preserve
them they will be forever lost.

wings she wore as a pilot. Photos courtesy of Rufus Ward.

MSWG Members and former members who died in 2015
1st Lt William D. “Bill” Sprouse (MS-109 Vicksburg)
William D. Sprouse passed away at the Jackson, MS VA Hospital on 8 June 2015. Born
on November 3, 1933. Bill was a Korean War Veteran. He joined CAP in December
2013 and served in a variety of roles in MS-109, including that of Mission Scanner. He
was promoted to 1st Lt just seven days before his death.

MSWG Assistant Inspector General Lt Col T. Keith Riddle
Email from Mallory D. “Mal” Woodcock
08/26/15 at 7:30 PM
Ladies and Gentlemen:
It is with deep sadness that I report the loss of Lieutenant Colonel Thomas "Keith" Riddle
who passed away earlier this afternoon at his home following a short illness.
Lt Col Riddle was a native of the Mississippi Gulf Coast and was first assigned to SERMS-048 as a cadet. He later became a senior member earning the rank of 2nd Lt in July
1992, then earning promotion to 1st Lt in May 2004; Capt in December 2005; Major in
December 2008 and Lt Col in December of 2013.
Lt Col Riddle was awarded countless CAP awards and decorations to include:
the Exceptional Service Award (with device); several Commander's Commendation
Awards; numerous Search and Rescue Ribbons and countless other service and
mission earned decorations. He completed the senior member professional development
program in November 2009, achieving Level V and earning the Gill Robb Wilson Award
(#2714). He held numerous positions at the squadron before holding several wing level
positions to include: Search and Rescue Officer, Asst. Director of Communications,
Director of Logistics, Special Advisor to the Commander and Inspector General. Lt Col
Riddle was one of the first volunteers for CAP's surrogate predator program and quickly
became known as the premier specialist on this important mission and the equipment
used. He ultimately held the national position as Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations
(NHQ-966). Lt Col Riddle was also a pivotal organizer and participant in CAP's National
Special Cadet Activity: Under Graduate Pilot Training Program, held annually at
Columbus AFB, MS.
Keith was simply a legend in the Mississippi Wing and Civil Air Patrol. CAP was truly at
the epicenter of his day-to-day life; and his devotion to his duties and passion for
CAP was boundless. His immeasurable service includes countless actual missions,
natural disaster responses, operations evaluations, sundown patrol missions, ES exercises,
CD missions, professional development, encampments and so much more. His loss will
be felt throughout this great organization...and this country lost a true patriot today.
Please join me in spending some time in honor and recognition of his dedicated service to
CAP and our Country. Please also take a moment to think of his family and friends at this
sad time. I will pass along information concerning funeral arrangements as I receive
them.
Semper Vigilans...Keith.
Mal.

Subject: Death of Bob Baylis
Mal,
Bob Baylis was a pilot in MS072 for several years back in the 1990's and possibly in the
early 2000's. Bob and I flew many missions together and may be remembered by some
of MSWG's more mature members. Bob's son, Dr. Tommy Baylis, also was a member
and pilot while he attended USM, before leaving for medical school.
