A happy reunion between two brothers, Gene & Jack Sivertson, was held recently somewhere in France, according to a letter received by Mrs. Jack Sivertson last week, says the Kingsley News-Times.

Jack is serving the U. S. Army in the railroad repair and maintenance division and Gene was just returning to his company after a several weeks stay in a base hospital in England.  He was wounded, by a piece of shrapnel through the shoulder about five days after the invasion of France. Incidentally, he hadn’t received any mail for weeks, until just the day before he was wounded, when he got about fifty letters in one mail. Brother Jack, however, had mail and some photos, which were very welcome to him also.
