Sgt. Walter J. Smith from Camp McClain, Miss., arrived Thursday afternoon on a furlough visit with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. H. Smith. Sergeant Smith just missed seeing his youngest brother, Kenneth Smith, who left last week for Camp Farragut, Idaho, and his oldest brother, Petty Officer 3/c Marvin R. Smith of Davisville, R.I., who was here on a short furlough the latter part of June.

Marvin R. Smith, S.F. 3/c, writes his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Chas. H. Smith, from Recuperation Center, Camp Parks, Calif., stating that he is recovering from a back injury sustained some time ago. The outfit to which he was attached had been shipped out, and until his complete recovery he will be confined to Camp Parks. Another son, Sgt. Walter J. Smith, who has been stationed at Camp McCain, Miss., wrote a few days ago that they were being shipped out, destination unknown.

Mr. and Mrs. Chas. H. Smith received a long distance telephone call Wednesday noon from their oldest son, Marvin Smith, Shipfitter third class in the Seabees, who recently returned from 15 months overseas in the Southwest Pacific. Since his return to the States, he has been in the naval hospital at San Pedro, Calif., and had arrived at Memphis, Tennessee, that morning on a 30-day leave. He and his family are expected to arrive soon in LeMars for a visit with his parents.
