Pvt. Elmer Loutsch




Pvt. and Mrs. Elmer Loutsch of Camp Crowder, Mo., are back to visit their parents, Mr. and Mrs. John Loutsch and Mr. and Mrs. Al Bohlke of Remsen.  Since Elmer went into service at Camp Crowder the couple have been privileged to make several trips home, but this is the longest stay, a 15-day furlough. Pvt. Loutsch is still serving as a truck driver and has had numerous commendations for keeping his truck in “tip-top” condition. During July he won two 3-day passes for having the cleanest of the 100 trucks at camp.
