Our Neighbors in the Service

Orange City, Ia.—The 448th subdepot in England, with which Sgt. Henry Visser of Orange City, Ia., serves as an aircraft sheet-metal repairman, has become the first subdepot in the European theater of operations to win the newly created meritorious service unit plaque.  The new award entitles Visser to wear a miniature cloth plaque on the sleeves of his service blouse.  Sgt.
