STILL IS "MISSING"
Mrs. Lena Chapman of Chazy has
received word that her nephew,
Charles Bennett, 25, of Omaha,
Nebraska, is still missing in action.
An aerial engineer, he failed to return
from a raid over Rumania.
Mr. Bennett is the eldest son of
Elmer I. Bennett, formerly of
Chazy. Since receiving the first report
that their son is missing, Mr.
and Mrs. Bennett have had letters
from government officials and air
corps officers. Citations, medals,
and oak leaf clusters which have
been awarded to the missing airman
have also been sent.
