The Auxiliary to Our Boys in Service met
in the Red Cross room at the armory, Tuesday evening.
A report of the boys having birthdays in
January was read. Cards are sent each month, so if your boy is
having a birthday in February and isn’t listed on the files
of the Auxiliary, you are asked to call either Mrs. Louis Kauffman
or Mrs. Calvin Hills.
Those overseas to whom cards were sent
included: Robert Bates, Victor Boss, Richard Brown, William Dolan,
Robert Griffiths, Lorris Johnson, Richard Jolivette, Raymond
Kadonsky, Malcolm Larson and Wendalin Schommer.
Cards for January birthdays of those in
this country went of Lewis Goldamer, George Garbrecht, Norman
Kalepp, Gilbert Kattre and John Wing.
Letters coming in, replies of thanks and
appreciation for boxes receive at Christmas were also read.

Vernon Gosse, who was in a part of Germany where there was no snow
at the time, and Sgt. Gilbert Fink.

Btry. of the 173rd F.A. Group."
