As a hobby I rescue old photos, documents and in this case news articles. My goal is to get this back into the hands of family and I only ask to be reimbursed what my expenses are.

This one is dated 1943 and is the announcement of a memorial service that was going to be held for a soldier who died in the Aleutians.

He was identified as PFC Charles C. TOWNE. He graduated from Edmore Rural Agricultural School with the class of 1940. He joined the Army and was in the Aleutians where he died on Feb. 25, 1943 while on patrol duty. He died during a heavy snow storm.

If you are family & want to obtain it, please contact me for details at:
