Visits Nephews at Camp

The Lawrenceburg Press
Thursday, May 22, 1941

Mr. and Mrs. George Doenges visited their nephews, Leslie and Raymond Doenges at Camp Shelby, Hattiesburg, Miss., over the weekend. Leslie had been in the camp’s hospital for a week and it was thought he might have to undergo an operation.

Leaving there on Friday morning, the visitors arrived at the camp on Saturday morning. They were with Raymond at the camp part of their stay and visited Leslie in the hospital. On Sunday, they ate at the camp mess hall with the men and enjoyed a fine chicken dinner.

Other Dearborn county boys they saw while at the camp were Lyndon Moon of Lawrenceburg, Jerry Zimmer of Dover, both of whom are in the medical detachment, Luther Sappenfield, of Lawrenceburg and Paul Sutton of Aurora.

The Doenges boys are in Co. B, 151st Infantry, 28th Division.
