Lt. Don Ward




Early, Ia.—First Lt. Don Ward arrived here to visit his wife in the Elmer Evans home. He had been expected home soon but his wife was surprised with a telephone call from St. Paul, Minn., Saturday saying he had just arrived, having flown from a base in England on December 26, stopping at the Azores and Bermuda enroute to Washington. Lt. Ward completed his quote of 30 missions as lead bombardier in high altitude flying over France and Germany. He has been awarded the D. F. C. and the presidential citation. After a 30-day stay here he will go to Miami, Fla.
