Gig’s Up – Plane of Edward “Pappy” Gignac
Gignac joined the service in early 1941, graduating flight school immediately after the war started. He shipped out to the SW Pacific with the 7th Squadron of the 49th PG, was later transferred to the 40th PS of the 35th PG. This 35th Group was instrumental in halting the Japanese advance into Port Moresby in the Summer of 1942 against appalling odds. "Gig" won the Silver Star on June 18, 1942 for repeatedly attacking Japanese bombers while being riddled by pursuing Zeros. He was badly injured on July 11, 1942 after force landing his P-400 due to engine failure. After an extended recovery, he returned home, refused training duty, and was assigned to the 486th FS, 352nd FG. "Pappy" was a respected flight leader and pilot, and achieved 1.5 aerial victories ETO. He was KIA by flak while strafing in support of D-Day operations near Voisin le-Bretonneux (Versailles area) on June 7, 1944. Major Gignac was Group Operations Officer, HQ 352nd FG at the time of his death. He is buried in the US Military Cemetary at Epinal, France.
While in the SW Pacific, another braggart pilot from the Northeast fancied himself a skier. Riding in a truck to the field one day in the New Guinea heat, he struck a downhill pose, and began to give ski instructions to everyone within earshot. To his dismay, it was pointed out by another pilot that quiet Edward "Gig" Gignac was a National champion skier! Apparently this other pilot never lived it down.
When promoted to Major and 352nd FG Group Operations Officer in May of 1944, an amazed "Pappy" wrote home,
"I’m no longer a mere cog, I’m a wheel!"
"GIG’S-UP II", s/n 43-7185, code PZ*G, aircraft participated in first three-way Shuttle Mission to Russia and Italy, destroyed in forced crash landing on November 4, 1944 in Belgium.
5 Steps To Using An Xbox Transfer Cable Efficiently
An Xbox transfer cable is the perfect solution for anyone who may have just purchased a new Xbox 360 console and are looking to transfer everything from the old system. From games to videos to music to gamertags, this simple cable can get the job done quickly and efficiently in just a few basic steps.
You will find there are two options for moving the information you care ever-so much about. The Xbox 360 hard drive transfer cable can be used to move everything to your new console or you can connect a USB flash drive if the amount of content is a small file. But without a doubt the transfer cable is the way to go when looking to move some serious content.
To transfer the content from your old device to the new console, you will need the Xbox transfer cable and the latest console software. You can easily get the latest software by signing in to Xbox LIVE on the new console where you will be prompted to install it.
Upon purchasing the cable, the first step to transferring all of your data is to remove the hard drive from your old Xbox 360 console. If you are unsure of how to do this, you can look it up on Xbox.com or any other gaming web site.
From there, the next step is to connect the Xbox transfer cable to your old hard drive. You will then plug the other end of the transfer cable into a USB port on your new console. As soon as both ends of the cable have been connected, it is time to start transferring content over to the new Xbox.
At this point you will turn on the new console while looking for the latest console software. If it has already been installed, you will see a message that says “Choose Yes, transfer to console.” If this message does not appear, you will then need to sign in to Xbox LIVE to get the latest software.
All that is left to do is select “Start” to begin the content transfer. The transfer itself can take several hours to complete based on the amount of content that is stored on your old hard drive. The more you are transferring over the longer you should expect it to take. As soon as it is complete, you can sing in to Xbox LIVE and enjoy all of the same data from your new Xbox 360 console. It really is that simple thanks to the efficiency and overall simplicity the Xbox transfer cable brings to the table.

If you want to do this for FREE the easiest way is to copy the SMS messages you want to save to your SIM and then back again after the upgrade.
Go to the SMS message, hit Menu > Copy to SIM
After you upgrade to WinMo 6.1, you can go to those messages and hit Menu > Copy to phone to get them back.
