Reinbeck Soldier Killed In Action

Robert Dudolski, son of Mrs. Lydia Dudolski of Reinbeck, was killed in Germany. A few months ago he was reported missing in action. On Monday the mother received a message from the War Department stating that her son had been killed. He had been in the service a year and was home for the last time late last fall.

This makes the second son that Mrs. Dudolski has lost in the war. An older son, Herman, was killed about six months ago. He had been making his home with the Gethman family before entering the armed service.

Another son, Harold Dudolski, is in the navy and he is now in the Pacific. The youngest of the Dudolski boys, Melvin, is working on a farm near Reinbeck.
