Joe Diederich, S1/c



NEWS of the Boys in the Service

The Math Diederich family in Remsen were given a pleasant surprise last week with notice that their son and brother, Joe Diederich, seaman first class, was soon to arrive on leave. Shortly after this they received a phone call from Joe, asking to be met in Sioux City, Sunday. His father met the train and they arrived home in the small hours of Sunday. Seaman Joe has been serving aboard the destroyer Sigourney, principally in Philippine waters. He is home to spend 18 days, after which he will report at San Pedro, Calif.
