: : W*St!fpP«M;S;'i':: MCT. ANDERSON OF SWEA CITY NOW POINT RELEASED Qwea City: Swea City's first soldier to be released under the point system of honorable discharge reached home Sunday night. He is T-Sgt. Arnold Anderson, only son of Mr. and Mrs. G. O. Anderson, who had spent three years, four months and nine days in the service of Uncle Sam. Arnold, who is 35, was employed with the Blomster grocery here until his enlistment on January 25, 1942. He 'took his basic train- Ing at Oamp Lee, Va., and wns sent to Iceland, where he spent upwards of a year. Arnold was one of the few boys from here who never was granted a furlough from the time of his enlistment until just before being discharged. Six days 'after D-day he landed in Normandy with others of ihis outfit, and since then he has been busy in his -branch of *he service (automotive supply), seeing to it that the Yanks kept rolling. He has been in France, Belgium. Holland and Germany and wears the campaign ribbon pertaining to each. He also has 'been awarded four battle stars. Returning to the states nbout a month ago, Arnold was married to Naomi Hewett, daughter of Mrs. Lucy Hewett and the late Ira Hewett.

Naomi was graduated from the Algona high school and taught in rural schools and at Ledyard, Renwick and Algon'a previous to accepting a position as first grade teacher in Polk school Cednr Rapids. Sgt. Anderson and his bride have no immediate plans, •but are considering offers. Prob ably some fishing trips and plenty of good home cooking will hold the most appeal for Arnold at present.
