Serving Uncle Sam (Excerpt)

Lincoln—Pvt. Joseph Camillo of Camp Shelby, Miss., is here on a 21-day furlough with his wife, the former Genevieve Walling, and their infant son, Michael, who have been staying with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Tracy Walling. Another house guest at the Tracy Walling home is their eldest son, George Walling, who left here six weeks ago to join the crew of a merchant marine vessel bound for the Sandwich Islands. George received his merchant marine engineer papers before he left on the trip. He expects to go out from San Francisco on another trip this month. His wife is staying here with his parents while he is gone.
