326th Airlift Squadron

The 326th Airlift Squadron is part of the 512th Airlift Wing at Dover Air Force Base, Delaware. It operates McDonnell Douglas C-17 Globemaster III aircraft supporting the United States Air Force global reach mission worldwide; the squadron was first activated in 1944 as the 1st Combat Cargo Squadron. It served in the China-Burma-India Theater. After VJ Day the unit was converted to the troop carrier mission as the 326th Troop Carrier Squadron, it was inactivated in theater in December 1945. The squadron was activated in the reserves in July 1947. In 1949 it moved to Reading Municipal Airport, where it was called to active duty for the Korean War, but inactivated after its personnel were used as fillers for other units, it was activated again in the reserve in 1952.

The squadron was once again activated as a reserve unit under Air Defense Command at Morrison Field, Florida on 15 July 1947; the squadron was nominally a Curtiss C-46 Commando unit, but it is not clear to what extent it was equipped with tactical aircraft while at Morrison. In June 1949, Continental Air Command, which had assumed the responsibility for training reserve units from Air Defense Command in 1948, reorganized its reserve units under the wing base organization system; as part of this reorganization and unit reductions required by President Truman’s reduced 1949 defense budget, the 435th Group moved to Miami International Airport, where it was assigned to the newly formed 435th Troop Carrier Wing. Reserve flying operations at Morrison came to an end, with the exception of the 326th Squadron, which remained there until September, when it moved to Pennsylvania and was assigned to the 512th Troop Carrier Group.

The squadron was manned at 25% of normal strength. The squadron was called to active service for the Korean War in March 1951, but its personnel were used as fillers for other organizations and it was inactivated two weeks later; the unit's aircraft were distributed to other organizations as well. The squadron resumed training in the reserve for airlift missions in 1952, it has since taken part in various contingency and humanitarian airlift operations worldwide.

Juan Zurita

Juan Zurita was a Mexican boxer in the Lightweight division and a 1944 National Boxing Association Lightweight world champion. Zurita was a southpaw or left handed boxer, who fought with his right foot forward, though at times he could lead with his right as well. American newspapers distinguished him as the first native-born Mexican to win a world boxing title. Zurita was born on May 1917 near Veracruz, Mexico on the Atlantic Coast, he began fighting professionally in early 1932, on the Western Mexican coast in Guadalajara, Mexico. Early in his career, Zurita won the Featherweight Championship of Mexico, defeating Joe Conde on February 24, 1934, in a twelve round points decision for the title, he defeated Joe Conde again in a rematch for the Featherweight Championship on March 11, 1939 in a twelve round points decision at the Arena Mexico in Mexico City. On January 4, 1935, Zurita defeated Pablo Dano in a ten round points decision at Legion Stadium in Hollywood, California. Zurita took four rounds, Dano three, three were even.

Zurita took the first four rounds according to the Los Angeles Times and finished strong in the final round. The win was significant for Zurita as Dano was the more experienced boxer and favored in the early betting. On February 15, 1936, Zurita defeated Californian boxer Georgie Hansford in a fifth round knockout in Mexico City. On March 28, 1936, he defeated American boxer Midget Wolgast at the Arena Nacional in Mexico City in a fifth round knockout. Zurita sent Wolgast to the mat for a count of nine in the fifth, before finishing him shortly after for a full count with a left to the stomach and a right to the chin. On July 24, 1936, Zurita defeated Wolgast again in a ten round points decision at Legion Stadium in Hollywood, California. Zurita had the cleaner and more effective punches. There were no knockdowns in the bout; the referee gave eight rounds to Zurita, two to Wolgast, though Braven Dyer of the Los Angeles Times felt the fight was a bit closer. Zurita seemed strongest in the closing rounds.

He had lost to Wolgast three times in 1935, on February 21, May 21, June 28 in ten round points decisions, first in Los Angeles and twice at Legion Stadium in Hollywood. Wolgast had held the World Flyweight Title in July 1931, had contended unsuccessfully for the World Bantamweight Title. On August 18, 1936, Zurita lost to exceptional Black boxer Henry Armstrong in a fourth round knockout at Olympic Stadium in Los Angeles. At the time, Armstrong held the California version of the World Featherweight Title. Zurita carried the first two round on points with a furious attack. In the bottom of the third, Armstrong had found his range and made a number of effective blows to the head of Zurita that had him groggy. In his career, Armstrong would hold the World Welterweight Championship. Zurita lost again to Armstrong on October 13, 1942, in a second round knockout at Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles; the final blow was a right to the chin 2:20 into the second. The final blow was a left hook followed by a right cross, 2:20 into the second, was the only knockdown in the bout.

By their last bout in October 1942, Armstrong had taken world titles in both the Welterweight and Lightweight divisions. On January 1, 1937, Zurita defeated Spanish boxer Baltasar Sangchili in a ten round points decision in Mexico City. In June 1935, Sangchili had taken the IBU World Bantamweight Title in Valencia and had taken the World Bantamweight Championship in the same year. Zurita defeated New York based Puerto-Rican born Koli Kolo around June 1, 1938, in a fourth round knockout in Tepic, Mexico; the exact date of the bout remains unknown, may have occurred the month earlier. On June 18, 1938, Zurita defeated talented Mexican boxer Rodolfo "Baby" Casanova in Guadalajara, Mexico in a sixth round Technical Knockout, it was Zurita's only win against Casanova. On August 20, 1938, Zurita would lose to Casonova in a sixth round technical knockout in Mexico City. In four earlier meetings with Casanova, in a Mexican Featherweight Title match on September 15, 1934, in matches in April 1935, April 1936, June 1937, Zurita would lose.

Though each boxer was close in height and close in reach, Zurita did not seem to match up well with Casanova, two years older and may have benefited from two extra years in age. By September 1934, Casanova had taken the Mexican Featherweight Championship, had scored seven successful defenses of the title. Zurita first took the Mexican Lightweight Title on September 10, 1938 against Joe Conde in a twelve round points decision at the Arena in Mexico City, though few if any American newspapers covered the story. On May 15, 1939 Zurita first defeated Jimmy Hatcher in a ten round decision at the Walkathon Theater in San Antonio, Texas, he defeated Hatcher again on September 11, 1942, in a second round technical knockout at Legion Stadium in Hollywood. The bout was stopped by the referee thirty seconds into the second round after Hatcher received a long cut on his forehead; the loss ended Hatcher's string of nineteen straight wins. On July 21, 1940, Zurita defeated Speedy Dado in a fifth round technical knockout at the Arena Progreso at Jalisco, Mexico.

Dado was a talented Philippines-born boxer who would take the USA California State Bantamweight Title in October 1933, compete unsuccessfully for the World Bantamweight Title in May 1935. On May 17, 1941, Zurita defeated Carlos Miranda in a third round knockout in Mexico City. On November 14, 1941, Zurita defeated George Latka in a ten round points decision at Legion Stadium in Hollywood, California. Twice in the second and once in the tenth Zurita scored against Latka with strong blows. Zurita started on the aggressive, and
