Four Newspaper Clippings about Ted’s Military Service

Columbia, Adair County, Kentucky

(1) “Cpl. T. W. Roberts Stationed In England”

Corporal T. W. Roberts, of the U. S. Army Air Forces, has been stationed in England for a month. His parents Mr. and Mrs. T. W. Roberts of this city, received twnty-four letters from him last week. He is being given further training in airplane mechanics,, which will prepare him to be an instructor.

(2) “Teddy Roberts Promoted To Rank of Sergeant”

Theodore W. Roberts, Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. T. W. Roberts, of this city, has recently been promoted from the rank of Corporal to that of Sergeant. He has been stationed in England for several months and is taking some special training.

(3)  “Sgt. T. W. Roberts AT Warrignton, England”

1st Base Air Depot, Warrington, England – V – E Day found Sgt. Theodore W. Roberts, of Columbia, Kentucky, on the job, helping to ready more combat planes and equipment for immediate action whervever they might be needed.

Sgt. Toberts, son of Mr. and Mrs. Theo Roberts, Louisville, Kentucky is one of the crack Air Service Command team who pitched in to back up the air assaults that helped knock Germany out of the war.

Commending their battle-backing efforts, Brigadier General Morris Berman, Commanding General of the Base Air Depot Area, Air Service Command, declared: “These soldiers of the Base Air Depot have, since their work began, dispatched 415,000 tons of Air Corps supplies, assembled and modified 12,000 combat planes, and repaired or overhauled more than 30,ooo aircraft engines.”

Sgt. Roberts has been overseas since October 8, 1943, and joined the Army in September, 1942.

(4)  “Adair Sergeant Aids “Keeping ‘Em Flying”

An Air Servic Command Station, (Somewhere in England): Everybody talks about “Keeping ‘em flying”, but Sgt. Theodore Roberts, son of Mr. and Mrs. Theo Roberts, of Columbia, Ky., is really in the business. A flight mechanic at an Air Service Command depot “Somewhere in England,” he plays a vital part in keeping America’s aerial might on the wing.

It takes 13 specially trained groundlings to keep each of our Flying Fortresses and Liberators in the skies. Working long hours, these unsung heroes of the battle of production and repair assemble newly arrived ships, add the most up-to-date modifications made necessary by America’s ever-increasing aerial offensive, and nurse battle-damaged planes back into flying condition.

A graduate of the Chevrolet Motor Corporation at Detroit, Michigan, he has been overseas 8 months. He entered the army in October, 1941. (actually 01 October 1942, probable typo error).
