Edward Kelly, Amm 3-c



Left to right: Edward and Thomas Kelly, when they met in the South Pacific recently.

Three sons of Mr. and Mrs. T. J. Kelly of Whittemore, got a rare break recently when they happened to meet in the South Pacific war zone.

Art, Y 1-c, is on the Paul Hamilton, a destroyer, and Tom and Edward are on the carrier Yorktown.  Both Tom and Ed hold the rank of Amm 3-c.

The brothers held a regular reunion thousands of miles from Whittemore and made the most of their chance to talk over “things at home.”
