Military Miscellany

S. Eugene Morris, 24, aviation ordnanceman, second class, USNR, Sykesville, served in the Pacific with Fighting Squardron 6, based on the carrier USS Hancock, which recently returned to the West Coast for Navy Day.

Y. 3-c Milton H. Brandenburg has arrived in the States from the Pacific and is now stationed at San Pedro, Calif.

S. 1-c Richard E. Hart, USNR, writes to say that he, his wife, the former Catherine Stansfield of Sykesville, and their little daughter are getting along fine in Brooklyn. He encloses a clipping from a New York newspaper written by Chaplain Karl B. Justus. The item was an appeal by Rev. Justus to a thief who broke into a car parked in front of a YMCA building and stole a brief case, typewriter, bibles and other items used by the local chaplain while serving in the Pacific.

Two Sykesville men — James Terry Dearing and Mathew Francis Reilly — have been discharged at Bainbridge from Naval service and have returned to their homes here.

Soldiers Items

“China is more like California than any place I have ever been,” writes T-5 C. Austin Brown, who is now eligible to leave that theatre for the States.

Ordered by Local Draft Board No. 1 to report for induction on October 18, and accepted for general military service were Douglas Franklin Cutsail, of Sykesville, and Ralph Leroy Smith, of Hampstead.

Pfc. William Howell, of Fort Meade, has been promoted to Corporal. He is the husband of the former Helen Burdette, of Sykesville.
