Cpl. Donald Shearon





DONALD SHEARON—son of Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Shearon, has seen action with the Marines in the southwest Pacific.  He writes that he misses winter weather.  Some time ago he wrote home for a trench knife, and Clyde Marshall sent him a World War I trench knife, which he acknowledged with thanks.  He said other Marines had offered him $25 for it, but he declined to sell, saying he needed the knife himself.
