14-Algona, 0*.) Upptr Hit Main* thuftdoy, January 6, 1966 Marines In Viet Nam Get Gift Box From Algona, Write Thanks Many organizations complete worthwhile projects every year, but often the sponsoring group wonders if their work Is appreciated, The VFW Auxiliary here was fuLy gratified recently with the results of their latest project - gifts for GI's in Viet Nam, Mrs. Ed Wolf of the Auxiliary received three letters from a platoon in Viet Nam after that group sent two boxes overseas and the men were truly appreciative of the gifts. The two large boxes were sent by air mail Dec. 5 - and the service was swift - to say the least, as the letters which arrived were dated Dec. 7, 8 and 10. The boxes contained a variety of items which the local organization thought would be needed and they were sent directly to Lt. D. A. Grant of the 3rd Battalion, 4th Marines, Co. M,, whose name was obtained from an Auxiliary member. Lt. Grant is husband of a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gene Minard and Mrs. Grant is living in Algona while her husband is in Viet Nam. Items shipped to him for his platoon were donated by local Auxiliary members. His letter dated Dec. 8 follows: Dear Mrs. Wolf and members of the Auxiliary, This morning, my platoon came in from sitting in an ambush. It was 12 hours of wet, miserable, and in this case, unrewarded, patience. Then, at mail call, we received your package. I only wish you could have been here to see the looks of gratitude on their faces. We have plenty to eat and wear, but the things we miss are the soaps, shaving lotion, nuts, cookies and candles you sent. These are the things these Marines don't get here - and they mean so much to them. Almost every man received an individual item. The majority of these Marines are between ' 18 and 20, young, but with young Americans like them we are very able to continue as the leading exponent of freedom and democracy. _- Thank you, very much, from the ; bottoms of our hearts and I hope to see all of you next July when • I get home, Sincerely, Donald A. Grant 1st. Lt. USMC The photo above shows Lt. '' Grant's platoon in Viet Nam. Have Trouble Keeping One Sexfonite Down SEXTON - The past week the . question asked around Sexton " wasn't the usual what did you get for Christmas but liow's Mack coming along? The day after Christmas, Mack Wise, local _' store operator, had a heart attack in the morning but carried on ' business as usual. The next „ day the family succeeded in talk.. Ing him Into a visit to the doctor for the first time, which resulted „ in a quick trip to the hospital. In spite of the good treatment they could only keep him for four days, After all the kidding about taking a nap every noon • now we're wondering how to keep > Mack quiet and out of the store • so he won't have to make another trip to the hospital, Frank and Lloyd Wise have been coming from Mason City to help and Mrs, Nell Opheim is keeping the store operating. -flit must have been the fine weather that encouraged travel, for you have never seen so much coming and going as over the holiday weekends around here. Candidates for the long distance record are Mr. and Mrs, Frank Pruisman and Kathy who spent the two weeks in Colorado with their daughter and family. Because of the thoughtfulness of the army, Rick Steven was able to spend his first Christmas in service here at the Evert Stevens. His transfer to Maryland after completing basic train- Ing was delayed until after the holidays. Mrs. Evert Steven was so happy about it all that she was spreading Christmas joy with just the smile on her face. She also was the planner of a coffee party for her mother, Mrs. A. H. Genrich at LuVerne and a number of friends were invited In for the afternoon. Virginia Klein was home from her Clear Lake teaching just in time to get really acquainted with her new nephew.

With only Joyce at home and plans all made to spend the weekend at Starbuck, Minn., Mrs. Glenn Gabrielson thought she would have a quiet Christmas for the first time in many years. Then the letter came saying they would be having the Don Gabrielson, Mr, and Mrs. Julius Heng of Clear Lake and Mr, and Mrs. Terry Yocum, Tim and Kim for company Sunday. Christmas was spent cleaning house and getting ready for Sunday dinner! Mrs. Florence Gabrielson of Starbuck would not have been home for Christmas either as she suffered a relapse after surgery and spent the time in the hospital. She will be spending about a month at a retirement home recuperating.

Mrs. Nell Opheim had her Christmas dinner a whole week early, fortunately. A phone call later from the Bob Schumachers at Remsen explained those red spots little Tona had. She had a case of chicken pox by Christmas day. Mrs. Opheim was a guest of the ClairHovey's Christmas.
