Cpl. L. Kobbermann Enjoying France

In a recent letter to former co-workers at the Sentinel office, Cpl. Lawrence Kobbermann states that he has arrived safely in France and seems to be enjoying his new surroundings.

In the part of France where he is now located the towns and cities are the only places in which you can detect a war has been taking place. Buildings are demolished and things are torn apart in general but in the country areas the fields are green and the scenery is beautiful. He states that the food is good and conditions, under which they are living, is fine.

Lawrence is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Kobbermann, 221 Second avenue N.E., LeMars.
