Sgt. Julian Wilberding




NEWS of the Boys in the Service.

The Jos. C. Wilberding family of Remsen is enjoying a visit from son and brother, Sgt. Julian Wilberding, of Columbia Air Field at Columbus, Miss. Sgt. Wilberding arrived last week and is privileged to visit the family and his many friends hereabouts until August 15. He’s to report for duty August 17. In October, Julian will have served his country two years. He spent the first seven months at Kessler Field, and for nearly 17 months has been at Columbus, thus his entire period of service to date has kept him in the state of Mississippi. Sgt. Wilberding is with the ground force as a mechanic, and the only complaint is the sameness of scenery and the constant routine. Add these to his patriotic desire for “getting it over with” and Julian is “rarin to go” overseas. He has three brothers in Uncle Sam’s service.
