Robert Cook At Eastern Army Camp

Robert B. Cook was born in Clay county February 17, 1920, and graduated from Spirit Lake high school in 1940. He was inducted into the army in August 1942 at Pueblo, Colorado where he had been working on a defense project. He is stationed at Ft. Michie near New London, Conn. now.

Bob was brought up a mile west of Terril and is another of those huntin’, fishin’ guys that we all know and like so well.

He has three sisters, Mrs. Stella Hildreth, Terrill; Edna Cook of Des Moines; and Mrs. Mabel Chapman of Jackson, Minnesota; and a brother, Ray, on the home farm at Terril. His mother, Mrs. Carrie Cook, makes her home at Jackson and visits around.
