Marchand

Roy Joseph March-and, born in Crandall, Miss., 17 September 1920, enlisted in the Navy 18 October 1939. After duty in San Francisco (CA-38), Boise (CL-47), and Henderson (DD-785), he was transfered to Pecos (AO-G) 2 May 1940. On 1 March 1942 enemy planes from Japanese aircraft carrier Soryu attacked and sank Pecos near Christmas Island. Assigned to an antiaircraft gun, he remained at his post until bomb fragments put the gun out of commission; then lie acted as messenger for the commanding officer until fatally wounded. Fireman First Class Marchand was posthumously awarded the Silver Star for his courageous dedication to duty.

Marchand (DE-249) was laid down by Brown Shipbuilding Co., Houston, Tex., 30 December 1942; launched 30 March 1943; sponsored by Mrs. Charles D. Marchand, mother of Fireman First Class Marchand; and commissioned 8 September 1943, Lt. Comdr. G. F. Lynch, USCG, In command.

Marchand departed Houston 14 September for shakedown training off Bermuda until 31 October when he arrived at the Charleston Navy Yard, After antisubmarine warfare exercises while based at Quonset Point, R.I., in November, she arrived at Provincetown, Mass., the 20th. After service as target ship for training operations of Torpedo Squadron 13, the escort ship sailed for Norfolk, Va., arriving 12 December.

As the flagship of Escort Division 20, Marchand departed Norfolk 14 December escorting a convoy to Europe, and arrived in the Straits of Gibraltar 2 January 1944 to turn over the convoy to British warships. She then set course for Morocco arriving Casablanca 7 January. The ship got underway the next day for the east coast, arriving New York 24 January.

Marchand conducted exercises in Block Island sound and Casco Bay, Maine, until departure from New York 22 February with convoy CU-15 for Ireland. About 2200 on 25 February, during a heavy gale, SS El Coston rammed SS Murfreesboro. As Marchand came to the assistance of the badly damaged and burning merchant ships, El Coston's bow rammed Marchand on her starboard side amidships damaging the plates of her forward control room. Marchand then stood by and received 28 survivors

while Ricketts (DE-254) took on board 33 others. The next day Marchand steamed for Bermuda as escort for El Coston. Shortly after midnight the 27th the remaining 56 crew members of El Coston had to abandon ship. After the merchant ship sank at 0142, Marchand directed her course for New York, where the survivors were debarked 1 March.

On 6 April Marchand again sailed in convoy from New York for Northern Ireland, arriving Lisahally 17 April. She returned to New York 3 May. From 21 May 1944 to 11 June 1945, she made nine more round trips escorting convoys from New York or Boston to United Kingdom ports.

Marchand departed New York 19 June for training in the Chesapeake Bay, then to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. before sailing for the South Pacific. She arrived Pearl Harbor 26 July. With the Japanese surrender 15 August, she cleared Pearl Harbor 12 days later for maneuvers off Eniwetok and Kwajalein Atolls, Marshalls, from 3 September to 15 October. She continued on to Guadalcanal, arriving the 18th, before returing to Pearl Harbor 10 November by way of Canton, Phoenix Islands, where she debarked her U.S. Coast Guard passengers.

On 17 November the escort ship steamed for home, arriving San Diego 6 days later to debark more men of the Coast Guard. On the 25th Marchand headed for the east coast, via the Panama Canal, reaching New York 11 December. She then got underway 21 January 1946 for Green Cove Springs, Fla., arriving the 23d for inactivation. On 25 April 1947 she decommissioned and entered the Atlantic Reserve Fleet at Green Cove Springs. Into 1969 she is berthed at Orange, Tex.


Roland Marchand

Roland Marchand was not only a leading historian of American culture, he was also one of the most beloved teachers in the history department. A scholar of American advertising and public relations, he brought his incisive analysis of business culture—particularly advertisements—into the classroom and made learning history a joyous occasion for generations of UCD students.

Marchand received his B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. from Stanford University. He also served from 1955 to 1958 as a naval officer. In 1964 he joined the history faculty at Davis, where he specialized in 20th century U.S. history.

His first book, The American Peace Movement and Social Reform, 1898-1918 (Princeton, 1973), examined the groups in the U.S. pacifist movement. His second book, Advertising the American Dream: Making Way for Modernity, 1920-1940 (California, 1985) focused on the ways in which advertisers deployed traditional cultural tropes to help their customers feel more comfortable with consumption and modernity.

For his third book, Marchand examined the public relations industry, particularly the efforts of U.S. corporations to improve Americans’ views of large companies and of capitalism. He spent years researching the topic in corporate archives. His final book, Creating the Corporate Soul: The Rise of Public Relations and Corporate Imagery in American Big Business (California, 1998), was finished just before his death.

Marchand loved to impart the insights of his research to students and the broader public. He co-founded, with Kathy Medina what was originally known as the Area 3 History and Cultures Project on the Davis campus in 1991. Now known as the History Project at UC Davis , it is one of five regional sites of the California History-Social Science Project , and has, since its inception, brought together university faculty, graduate students, and K12 teachers to collaborate, share resources, and work collaboratively to improve instruction, and with it, student learning. A winner of the Academic Senate’s undergraduate teaching prize, he was renowned for his analysis of visual images , particularly advertisements, in his engaging lectures. Marchand was one of the first to create multi-media slide shows, with coordinated slides, music, and audio, at a time when the technology was rudimentary and difficult to coordinate, making him a pioneer of what we now know as 'PowerPoint' presentations! He died in 1997, at age 64. After his passing, Roland ’s widow, Betsy, donated his collection of teaching slides to the History Project, where they were digitized and put online as the Marchand Archive , a collection that now includes thousands of images ready for classroom use, thanks to the ongoing support of scores of current and former UC Davis faculty. The Marchand Fellowship for graduate student researchers was endowed in his memory.


About Us / History of Marchand

Marchand is a family business founded by Irina Predusel in 1992, shortly after the fall of the Eastern Bloc. Before starting to deal with natural casings, we engaged in a series of activities such as running supermarkets and a beef slaughterhouse.Since we began to work with natural casings in 1996, our management has continuously channeled all its energy into providing better products to sausage factories around Romania and building a strong reputation.

This dedication is testified by the company’s immediate rise on the casings market by 2000 Marchand was already the biggest importer and distributor on the market. Marchand proudly played an important role in the development of the casings industry in Romania, by constantly searching and opening new markets, by setting new standards and by bringing out fresh ideas, while at the same time building a solid name for Romania as a relevant importer on the international market.

In 2006, the company inaugurated a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Magurele, in the south of Bucharest, that gave start to its own production of natural casings. Today, Marchand has already reached a remarkably high quality standard in the production of natural casings. This achievement has been made possible by our company’s presence at all stages of the supply chain: slaughterhouse, production and distribution.

This constant and close presence is what allows Marchand to reach the desired standard and to effectively meet the needs of all our clients.

In 2008, Marchand also started to work with pork by-products, a new development that is the demonstration of the company’s view for the future: it will try to add value to the animal wherever it can and distribute part of this value to its partners.

Since 2012, our management has become second generation, and the company is more determined than ever to carry on its commitment in being a key player on the Romanian market and an active competitor on the international ones.

In October 2013 the Ilfov Chamber of Commerce awarded Irina Predusel, the great distinction of Best Business Woman of 2012, under the Best Manager Award.


Marchand DE-249 - History



The Japanese Surrender and Occupation of Kusaie Island, Caroline Islands

USS Ricketts is well known for her heroic action in the Atlantic during the first of twelve escort voyages to Northern Europe and back. She saw a burst of flames in the convoy at 2035 on the stormy night of 25 February, 1944. Two merchant tankers, El Coston and Murfreesboro had collided and both ships were badly damaged and burning. Ricketts rescued 33 survivors from the sea, which was covered with blazing gasoline. Her commanding officer, Lt. Comdr. Glenn L. Rollins, USCG, was awarded the Bronze Star for his part in this daring rescue and two other officers and six enlisted men received the Navy and Marine Corps Medal.

Ricketts continued her Atlantic convoy duty until June 1945 when she was ordered to the Pacific theatre. She sailed for the Pacific from New York 19 June 1945 with the remainder of Escort Division 20: USS MARCHAND DE-249, USS HURST DE-250, USS CAMP DE-251, USS HOWARD D CROW DE-252 and USS PETTIT DE-253.

After exercises in Chesapeake Bay and refresher training at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, she transited the Panama Canal 7 July. She called at San Diego, CA, for a 5-day visit and departed 20 July, steaming independently for Pearl Harbor and arriving one week later. A month of intensive training in Hawaiian waters followed. She sailed for Eniwetok 27 August in the company of nine other ocean escorts, arriving there 3 September.

The day before her arrival at Eniwetok, the formal surrender of the Japanese Imperial Government, the Japanese Imperial General Headquarters, and all Japanese and Japanese-controlled armed forces wherever located, was signed on board the battleship
USS MISSOURI in Tokyo Bay at 0908, 2 September 1945.

After her arrival at Eniwetok, Ricketts was ordered to accept the surrender and to help establish the occupation of an isolated Japanese garrison on Kusaie, a bypassed island in the Caroline Islands. Ricketts got under-way for Kusaie one week later to assist in the disarming of the Japanese and to set up a military government. Further duty included the repatriation of natives of Ponape and Kusaie to their home islands.

Ricketts was involved in the liberation of Kusaie from 10 September until 13 October, 1945. You will not find much written about this part of Ricketts' history and the outstanding service she performed, much less find photos in any book. However, Alfred Schreiber MoMM 2/c, a Ricketts plankowner, has preserved this part of her history for all these years. Mr. Schreiber's rare documents and photos are invaluable in telling the story of the Japanese surrender and liberation of Kusaie Island.


A strange history of Brad Marchand kissing and licking NHL players

The Boston Bruins fell in overtime Friday night, but Brad Marchand found himself in the headlines once again for… licking an opponent.

Why is Brad Marchand licking people, and when did it start? Marchand actually has a long history of on-ice affection.

April 24th, 2014 – Marchand potentially gives congratulatory kiss to teammate Jarome Iginla

After Marchand whiffed on a couple of open chances to score against the Red Wings in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals, Iginla scored a game-winner in overtime.

“I think I gave him a huge kiss,” Marchand told reporters after the game. “It was great to have him score that goal and I’ll be able to sleep good tonight.”

March 7th, 2015 – Marchand kisses Max Talbot after scoring a game-winning goal

Marchand scored twice in a dramatic home win over the Flyers, and won the game in OT off an assist from Talbot.

“At 3:52 of overtime, Marchand guaranteed the Bruins another point, giving them a 3-2 win with his 21st goal of the season and second of the game, unleashing another raucous, rowdy celebration that included Marchand planting a kiss on the visor of the newly acquired Max Talbot.

“I just said to him, ‘I could kiss you right now.’ His visor was in the way,” Marchand said, grinning. “I’ll try anything once.”

February 20th, 2016 – Marchand attempts to kiss Dallas’ Patrick Eaves

Eaves and Marchand confronted one another, and Marchand leaned forward for a kiss. Eaves responded by pushing Marchand away. At the time, this seemed like a regular taunt.

November 11th, 2017 – Marchand kisses Leo Komarov

Instead of throwing a punch, Marchand planted a quick kiss on Komarov’s cheek while the two were wrapped up.

Komarov on Marchand kiss: "I told him I have a wife & a baby so I can’t do it right now."

​Did it bother you?

"No (pause, smile) I kind of liked it" https://t.co/rFWFzHoGGQ

&mdash Mark Masters (@markhmasters) November 13, 2017

April 12th, 2018 – Marchand licks Komarov

Marchand upped his intensity from the regular season, and delivered a first-round lick to Komarov’s face after the two exchanged shots.

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Maple Leaf? #StanleyCup pic.twitter.com/UFO1UFVO7Y

&mdash NHL on NBC (@NHLonNBCSports) April 13, 2018

When asked about the incident after the game, Marchand told reporters that he “just wanted to get close to” Komarov.

“I thought he wanted to cuddle. I just wanted to get close to him. “He keeps trying to get close to me. I don’t know if he’s got a thing for me or what. He’s cute.”

April 27th – NHL denies report that league told Marchand to stop licking people

After reports swirled that the league met with Marchand and requested him to keep his tongue to himself, both Marchand and the league denied that ever happened.

“No, we did not contact the Bruins or Brad Marchand regarding this incident,” NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said. “It’s just not true.”

May 4th – Marchand licks Tampa Bay’s Ryan Callahan

Marchand and Tampa Bay Lightning winger Ryan Callahan got physical with each other a few times Friday night, but Callahan received a lick on the cheek for confronting Marchand following a low hit.

Marchand explained that Callahan had punched him multiple times, and he was merely reacting.

“Well, he punched me four times in the face, so, you know, he just kept getting close. Nothing big.”

The Bruins lost the game in overtime, 4-3.

May 5th – NHL to ask Marchand to stop licking players

“NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly told ESPN via email that the league will inform the Bruins that Marchand must stop licking the faces of his opponents. “Yes, we will be communicating with the Club. We don’t expect it to happen again,” he said.”

Condolences to the Family

I knew when I didn’t hear from Mr. Allwein that something was wrong. He haf gotten an email address but had not responded for a while. We always stayed in touch since the days of The Quality Inn when my husband worked with him. What a fine man he was and an honor to have known him. Say hi to “Potts” for us.
