  • Notes 
    • The war is far from being over for Preston Fogwell, of Kent County, despited three months overseas duty in the European theatre, and given an Honorable discharge, ordinarily enough for any man’s “hit.”

      “This sort of a personal matter between me and the Axis,” Preston said recently as he worked on the assembly line at the Glen L. Martin Company in Baltimore building PBM Mariner patrol bombers for the Navy.

      “As an American, I want to do everything I can to keep our country free,” he went on, that not only ourselves, but future generations may grow up to enjoy the four freedoms and and live the American way.

      “The Army says I can’t fight any more, but I believe that in wartime if you can’t fight-work. BEfore I was discharged I was determined to get a war job and keep on punching at the Axis. I have seen what tremendous destructive force can be unleashed from the air and wanted to help hit where it would hurt the most. And as I believe after the war there will be a widespread demand for aircraft for transport duty, I wanted to secure my own future at the same time.”

      Preston Fogwell is but one of more then 700 discharged veterans, many former employes, working in the Martin plants. (From an old newspaper clipping.) [5]
