Gunner Rex Evans





Rex Evans, son of Mrs. John Evans, is the soldier of the week this issue. Rex is a gunner on a Fortress and now stationed with forces in England. After attending several flying schools in this country, he left for foreign duty last month from a field in Nebraska.

Rex attended the local schools and after finishing school operated a farm for his mother southeast of Lamoni.
