Plymouth County

2nd Lt. Ray Kobberman




NEWS of the BOYS in the SERVICE.

Second Lieutenant Ray Kobberman is his new rank. Ray Kobbberman, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Kobberman of LeMars, was one of the first Plymouth County men to enlist when it became apparent this country was headed for war. He spent almost two years at Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri where he was advanced to sergeant. A few weeks ago he was sent to the officer’s candidate school at Fort Benning, Georgia, where he was graduated last week as a second lieutenant and has orders to report to Fort Robinson in Arkansas.
