Brothers Reunited After Three Years in South Pacific

Reunited in the south Pacific after nearly three years separation were Pfc. Kenneth and Pvt. Donald Richards, sons of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Richards, 2104 W. 14th Street. The brothers had been on the lookout for one another after learning they were in the same area.

Kenneth, overseas for the last 25 months, now is stationed with a medical division in the Philippines. He enlisted nearly three years ago. Donald entered the army two years ago, and has been overseas the last year. His wife and baby daughter, Donna Lu, live with his parents.

Another brother, Sgt. Charles Richards, is a member of the 82d airborne division in Italy. His wife and daughter, Charlene Margaret, live at 1614 W. 28th Street.
