 Sgt. John T. Greer Reported Missing Since Corregidor.

  One of Macon County’s best loved families is distressed and heartsick this week over the news that their son and brother, Sgt. John T. Greer of Oglethorpe has been missing since the fall of Corregidor on May 7th.  No word has come out of the Japanese held Phillipines since that last desperate day, and not even Red Cross communication has been established.  How many men perished, how many were wounded and how many taken prisoner, has not been told.  It is a though the islands, with their thousands of American soldiers, had been submerged in the ocean through some catastrophic upheaval from the inner world.

  Word came to the Greer family, who were concerned because of no letters or news month after month, after they went to Vienna last week to interview Senator Walter F. George. Senator George promised to investigate the matter immediately, and upon his return to Washington, got in touch with the War Department. The message from the War Department to J. L. Greer of Oglethorpe, John’s father, said simply that he was “missing”.

  Brothers and sisters in the Greer family are: Rudolph Greer of Albany, Mrs. Callie Greer Wellborn of Oglethorpe; Mrs. Edwin Clapp of Byron, Grant Lee Greer of Montezuma; Mrs. Watt Brown of Montezuma; Mrs. Lamar Woodward of Augusta; Felton Freer of U.S. Navy yards at Norfolk, Va.
