Pvt. Phillip F. Waddell



Pvt. Phillip F. Waddell, U.S.M.C., whose home address is 2317 East 10th Street, wears the name of his town on his field jacket. After he met Clarence L. Ege, a ship’s cook second class, home address 1221 West 45th Street, they checked the receiving station books to find another Iowa buddy to help them celebrate their home town reunion. They are serving at a naval base in the southwest Pacific where “Main Street, U.S.A.” has been started by the men who have begun a home town log.
