Lloyd Schuneman




Our Neighbors in Service.

Spirit Lake, Ia.—Lloyd Schuneman, son of Mr. and Mrs. R.A. Schuneman of Spirit Lake, left for Norfolk, Va., to visit with his wife. He is on a furlough from the parachute troop base at Alliance, Nebr. Schuneman recently set the type for an anniversary edition of Wings and Boots, the official parachute trooper publication. In so doing he sacrificed “two jumps” but received the commendation of his entire paratroop outfit. He is the only Dickinson county youth in the paratroops. Before leaving for the Army he was a linotype operator on the Spirit Lake Beacon.
