Cpl. Roger McClintock




Mother's Day Means Sadness for Many a Waterloo Mother

There are some mothers who are fortunate to have their son home on furlough this Mother’s Day. Proud, indeed, is Mrs. Clara McClintock, 411 Wellington street, when her sons in uniform will escort her to church this morning. They are Sgt. Lloyd McClintock and Pvt. R. Vernon McClintock, both of whom will return Monday to their stations.

Sergeant McClintock, who is stationed with the parachute infantry at the army air base, Alliance, Neb., took his basic training in Georgia and already has 16 parachute jumps to his credit. He entered service in April, 1942.

Her youngest son, Private McClintock, is stationed with the ordnance division of the army air corps at Big Spring, Tex. Before his induction, he was a draftsman at the John Deere Tractor company.

In War Work, Too.
Another son, Cpl. Roger McClintock is stationed with the field artillery in Australia, and her eldest son, Delmar, 709 ½ West Eighth street, is awaiting his induction.

Besides sacrificing three sons in service, Mrs. McClintock is engaged in war defense work herself, and punches the time clock each day at the Associated Manufacturing company.
