IP—(UP) — War is an old story to telephone operators at Milchnl field, They know especially about that side r of war that begins when the fighting ends—when the wounded are flown buck to this country-—back home. Then the soldiers have lo fight one of the hardest battles of all. They call it "facing the family." Any telephone operator can tell you the story. It usually follows the same heart-breaking pattern. When a hospital plane arrives— the boys who can walk—on crutches or in cr.sts go to tho phono booths. They call I'heir. mothers first. Usually they don't mention their wounds. They just say "I'm fine. Don't cry mother." | Later, those who are married call! their wives. They try and tell themj what's wrong in a goner/.tl sort' of way. Often they pull thai old line—"I'll be as good us now in no time at all." Then there are the boys who have been critically wounded. The operators have to take the phones to their 'beds. These are the who have lost a leg or an in. battle—or who have been paralyzed. Usually, if they're engaged, the try lo break off their engagements. One sergeant from Chicago—who might be any G-I anywhere—started to tell his'girl that he had lost a leg. But hi.s voice failed him. Finally he started over again. "Hello. Amy," he said. "I'm home. They brought me homo in a plane. I'm fine Amy, honest I'm fine." Then ho told her about the leg. He said he didn't, want to bind her to any promises she'd made a. year ago. And then in a soft voicn he told her not to cry. When he handed the phone back, there was a strange look on the sergeant's face. "She was wonderful." he said. "She said why didn't T ask the doctor for an artificial leg, Boy, is she brave!" of Frd^ntl J Part or full time help, male or IJ female.
