Cpl. Meredith Ray has returned to the United States after two years in the China-Burma-India theater of operations and is spending a 21-day convalescent furlough with his mother, Mrs. Hazel Ray, 1604 Seventh street.

Cpl. Ray, a mechanic in the supply line of a quartermaster corps stationed in India, was wounded in the right leg November 12 in Burma by a Jap sniper. He was hospitalized in India until the first of the year when he was returned to this country and sent to Winter General hospital in Topeka, Kan. He will return there at the end of this furlough for further treatment.

He entered the army in August, 1942, and received his training at Camp Lee, Va., and at mechanic’s school at Stockton, Cal.
