News of . . . . .

Machinist’s Mate 2/c, R. E. Heaton, and Machinist’s Mate 3/c Russell Leroy Sellers are serving aboard an aircraft in the Pacific.

The crew of this carrier recently paid a three-hour rest period visit to one of the Navy’s new “recreation islands” in this war zone. These recreation islands have been set up on tiny atolls to give Navy men a few hours relax between battles.

Heaton’s Cedar Rapids address is 1301 Fifth street NW and Sellers lives at 1803 Johnson avenue NW.
