George A. Wells, MM 3-c



George A. Wells, MM 3-c, son of Mr. and Mrs. George Wells of this city, met a friend, Cpl. Lee Knoll, also of this city, in a surprise reunion recently somewhere in the South Pacific, according to word received here. Both servicemen had a fine time together from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. one day and spent their time looking at pictures of ones from home that they both know and in looking at Des Moines and Webster City papers.  Wells, who went into the service in 1941, is attached to a repair ship with the Pacific fleet.
