March 8, 1945
Some of you fellows must remember Mr. and Mrs. George Bowers who used to live here and their boys, LEROY and G. B. BOWERS. Well, Mrs. Bowers came in the office here the other day and told us that Mr. Bowers, who went back into the navy after Pearl Harbor and who is a veteran of the first world war, is now aboard a DE in the Atlantic Area; LEROY was with the 101st parachute division in the Belgian Bulge scrape, and got a bunged up right arm, now in a hospital in England, but is getting to the point where "I can use my fingers to write." G. B. is in the navy and in the Pacific. His mother had not heard from him in a number of weeks.
