Wendell Kuhn, son of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Kuhn, arrived home Tuesday from Germany, where he had been stationed for two years. He flew Sunday from Germany to Ft. Dix, N.J., where he received his discharge. He wasn’t expected home before Saturday. His mother and brother, Kenneth, drove to Milwaukee Tuesday after his motorcycle at Billy Mitchel Field, which he had shipped from Germany. After Mrs. Kuhn and son had left for Milwaukee, Bernard received a call saying that Wendell was at O’Hara Field in Chicago; there he got a plane to Milwaukee, so Bernard called his daughter, Mrs. Robert Hopfer, in Milwaukee, so they picked up Wendell as well as the motorcycle. It was sort of a surprise all around.
