Artifact Spotlight: Fort Bragg and Pope Field Balloons Images | by Matthew Peek | NC Stories of Service
By Matthew M. Peek, Military Collection Archivist, State Archives of North Carolina
Balloons, blimps, and airships capture people’s eyes more so than aircraft. As a kid, I grew up close to the original Goodyear Blimp rubberized Air Dock in Akron, Ohio, and would see the blimp over my house every other day. I’d also see it land at its newer base 5 minutes from where I lived. Goodyear blimp photographs from the 1920s covered buildings and restaurants in my home town region. My mom loved taking us to balloon races each year in August, and sometimes following balloon teams as they tracked their balloons as they came in to land. When I show students or researchers photographs of WWI-era aircraft or balloons, their eyes usually go towards the balloons because they are so unique.
One of the coolest parts of my job is seeing rarer items come to the State Archives of North Carolina that illuminate aspects of North Carolina military history, particular at the state’s military installations. One of the least documented periods in-state for Fort Bragg and Pope Field, which operated next to each other and in coordination through the U.S. Army, is the 1920s. Pope Field (later Pope Army Airfield and Pope Air Force Base, respectively) was established in 1919 as Pope Field, named for 1st Lt. Harley Halbert Pope, who was killed when his JN-4 Jenny crashed into the Cape Fear River near Fayetteville, NC. Originally, it was called the Camp Bragg Flying Field.
Pope Field was located next to Fort Bragg in Cumberland County, NC. From 1919 to 1927, the base was used for observation balloon, balloon, and bombing training. Balloon training and usage of balloons for ground training exercises were also used at Fort Bragg during this period following World War I. But what is rare to find are original photographs and snapshots of life at Pope Field from those servicemen stationed there in the 1920s for balloon service, or at Fort Bragg with balloon service for that matter. Why? Well, relatively few people over the years were stationed there compared with in the 1940s during World War II. Also, a lot of these 1920s photographs don’t have locations listed in soldiers’ photo album or on the photographs themselves.
But, observation balloons in North Carolina were a key military aspect and tactic used through WWII in the state. Their images from this period helped define the state’s early 20th-century military identity. Locals often recalled seeing balloons flying overhead around Fort Bragg and Pope Field. A few years ago, the Military Collection at the State Archives was fortunate to receive several balloon photographs from the 1920s, showing operations at Fort Bragg and Pope Field. We hope you enjoy seeing these unique images of military aviation history.MMP 11.B2.F11.1: Photograph of a U.S. Army dirigible balloon hangar at Pope Field, N.C., around the 1920s.

Campaign Spotlight: McDonald’s Sweden replaces all balloons with AR balloons in effort to reduce single-use plastics and waste
SWEDEN–McDonald’s Sweden and NORD DDB are replacing all balloons with digital balloons in an AR game. The game was released last week and is accessible to anyone enjoying a meal at McDonald’s Sweden, whether it is from a restaurant or from home.
Through the years, balloons have become a symbol for McDonald’s role as the go-to restaurant chain for families. And while balloons are colorful and fun, the popped balloons can end up littering the environment when the fun ends.
As part of their efforts to reduce single-use plastics and waste created by visiting the restaurants, McDonald’s Sweden and agency NORD DDB now replace the balloons in all restaurants across Sweden. The latex balloons will be replaced with digital ones in an AR game – and will never again end up in nature.
“To some, it might seem sad that we are getting rid of our beloved balloons, but it is an important step on our journey towards reducing single-use plastics and waste. By replacing our balloons with a digital AR game, we are giving more people the opportunity to have even more fun since the game can be played from anywhere. While at the same time doing something important for our planet,” says Staffan Ekstam, Director of Marketing at McDonald’s Sweden.
From the beginning of September, guests can play and enjoy more balloon fun than ever in the game available in McDonald’s app, where the challenge is to pop as many balloons as possible in a limited time. Apart from not becoming litter, this next generation of balloon experience lasts a lot longer and is more adapted to pandemic times, as guests ordering delivery can join in on the fun from home.

Spotlight Artist: Sean & Edelgard O’Kelly
Spotlight Artist: Sean & Edelgard O’Kelly, CBA’s
Home Country: Australia
Company: Balloon Decor (Australia)
Although they originally come from opposite sides of the world and their backgrounds are just as diverse the partnership of Edelgard and Sean O’Kelly was a match made in balloon heaven.
Edelgard worked in the fashion industry in Germany and Sean (among other things) worked as a journalist for several daily and weekly publications. After they met and married in 1983 they began working in Sean’s family business O’K Party Supplies (noted as the 1st Party Shop in Australia in 1976) at a time when the fledgling Aussie balloon industry was just being born.
In 1994, after realizing their forte was in décor design, they closed their shop and began working from their home office/workshop. Specializing in large events, sculptures and centre-pieces much of their work (back then) required them to hire skilled and unskilled work crews. Without the aid of automatic inflating equipment their precision décor had to be sized using the slow and tiresome method of a ‘holy box’
“It was all a costly and laborious effort that sometimes left us with very little profit.” says Sean. “It wasn’t until we invested in our Conwin equipment that we could more confidently predict our money hungry labor costs.
After 27 years of working beside each other Edelgard & Sean built BALLOON DÉCOR a long list of professional credits. Experienced in Props, Backdrops. Balloon Drops & Releases, Sculptures, Centre-pieces and Theme Décor they often found themselves inflating thousands of balloons at a time.
Apart form their varied collection of function decorations and specialty sculptures both Edelgard and Sean are noted presenters and have many of their designs featured in catalogues and information sheets that are distributed in Australia and around the word.
In recent years their creative pieces have been featured in the five catalogues for Premier Balloons in Australia as well as the catalogues and website of both Betallic and Sempertex. They have also had many articles published in party trade magazines as well as computer magazines highlighting the use of graphics programs in a balloon business.
Unfortunately, Edelgard passed away in March 2009 after a five year battle with leukemia leaving behind her an impressive legacy of designs and innovative time-saving techniques.
Since Edelgard’s passing Sean has concentrated on restructuring his business to specialise in services more suited to his experience as a Newspaper reporter, part-time graphic designer, balloon recipe writer, and function/display decorator.

Spotlight Sunday: Emily Corbett Releases Her First Book, “Thirty Two Balloons,”
This week’s Spotlight Sunday author has known one of our WAEN writers online for years, and we’re so happy for her.
Emily Corbett is 23 years old, and she is from Cullman, AL. She graduated with an associate’s degree in liberal arts from Wallace State in 2019 and is currently a student at Troy University. She lives in Cullman with her fiancé, David, and their two pets. In her free time, she enjoys singing, going out to karaoke night, blogging and writing. She is an ambassador for the American Cancer Society. Now, she is also an author. Her first novel “Thirty Two Balloons” is out now. She hopes to continue writing and pursue a career in social media, writing and blogging. Check out our chat below with Emily about her journey to becoming an author, the inspiration for Thirty Two Balloons, and her future plans.
1. Can you tell us a bit about your background? (Where are you from? Family? (For those who don’t know it, lol)
Hi! I’m originally from Alabama, but I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. I moved back to Alabama for college six years ago and currently live in Cullman. My parents have been married 25 years and live just a couple miles from me, and my grandparents are also just a short drive away. I have one sister three years younger than me. I live with my amazing fiance, David, and our two pets — a dog named Lupin, and a cat named Chloe.
2. How long have you been writing? What inspired you to become a writer?
I have been writing for as long as I can remember and have always enjoyed it. I took a creative writing class my sophomore year of college and my book actually started as a short story assignment. My professor encouraged me to continue it and so did several classmates, so I did. I never pictured myself as a writer or someone who would ever share my work. I submitted a piece to the literary journal at a college I briefly attended after my sophomore year and was told my work just didn’t cut it for them. I left this book on my computer for nearly three years. One night, my fiance, David, told me I should publish it. At first, I said no because I didn’t think it was possible or that anyone would read it. He really encouraged me to do it, and I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the success it has had so far. I would have never had the courage to share it with the world without his encouragement and support.
3. I enjoyed Thirty Two Balloons. Where did you come up with that title? What inspired this book?
Thank you! I’m glad you were a fan! I don’t want to give too much away, so I can’t tell you exactly why I came up with the title. However, I can say that the main character (Mandy) has a revelation during a moment of the story that involves balloons. Since this was such an important moment for my story’s plot, I included the balloons in the title. I also thought it would be a good way to create a minor curiosity for my readers.
4. Do you relate to Mandy’s journey and find that other women will as well?
I think Mandy goes through something that we can all relate to. She experiences something that makes her question her life choices and makes her realize what is truly important to her. I think that we all experience this in our lives so I would have to say that her journey is very relatable.
5. Will you be writing anymore about these characters? I’d love to know what happens with Mandy and Jason.
I haven’t fully decided yet, honestly. Everyone who has read my book has asked me to continue the story. That is not something I ever planned to do, but I could see myself writing more about these characters since so many readers have found a connection with them.
6. Has your life changed since you’ve become an author?
It’s mainly just been funny to hear from people that they did not know I was a writer or had any desire to publish a book. No one outside of my closest family knew that I had written this, and I didn’t tell anyone other than David that I was publishing it until the day before it became available.
7. Are you working on anything at the present you would like to share?
I’m working to start a blog soon and will keep you posted once it becomes public!
8. What’s next? What is a goal that you have for the future – personal or professional?
I’m currently working to finish my bachelor’s degree and hope to be finished by the end of the year. I would like to write another short story or novel and finish this year, too. Oh, and I’m getting married in October. You could say things are a little busy!
9. Besides your own, of course, what are some of your favorite authors or books we should read?
I love the Elin Hilderbrand books so much. They are my favorite summer reads because I love dreaming about the beach. I have three of them to take with me on our upcoming vacation. Currently, I’m reading The Guest List by Lucy Foley.
10. And last, where can our readers find you on social media? Where can readers purchase your books?
I am on Instagram @emilylaurencorbett and I am always active there… I love sharing my day with everyone. My book is available for purchase on Amazon and is available for download on Kindle. Kindle Unlimited subscribers can download for free. Thanks for having me today!
Sharing is caring!

guests who eat something;
guests who are dancing;
couples of guests holding hands;
of something brilliant, etc.
The winner is the one who does it first and takes all the photos with high quality.This gadget wedding contest can be made even more modern, for example, display a special chat for guests on the screen through a projector so that participants can send their photos there for everyone to see.
🥳Competition “Who Said It?”
Participants: everyone (except the bride and groom).
Props: nameplates or photos of the bride and groom.
This modern wedding pageant idea is not new, but continues to be popular in 2021. The presenter collects information from the newlyweds in advance and receives answers to questions like:
What did you think of your soul mate when you first saw her?
How do you see yourself in 5/10/20 years?
When did you realize that you are in love and want to stay with this person forever?
What was the first gift you gave your significant other?
Guests-participants will be given two plaques with the names or photos of the newlyweds.Then the presenter reads out the answers of the young people in the format of a question: “Which of the newlyweds at the first meeting thought about their soulmate that she was too self-confident?” The participants’ task is to answer the question by raising the sign. Friendship wins the competition.
You can also slightly change the competition by handing out to guests, instead of tablets, leaflets where questions are written, and the guest must guess who said this or that phrase.
