On the first of November, 1942, he was assigned to duties in North ' Africa, with a medical unit, and is serving tHere tocjay. While with " a ' camp nfear'-.;i)ehver,:'Cqlo.,. during ; his Kenrteth'tLeie),' "are: now making their home with 1 Mrs. Pedersen. V' Paul Arrie Pedersen, second son, clas of '39, was called to training in 'tHe army air corps 'last August, at Kelly Field, /Texas. His preflight training was had at Santa Anna, Calif., and his primary training at Thunderbird -Field, near. Phoenix, Ariz. He finished his basic. training at Minter Field, Bafcersfleld, Calif., graduating and receiving his wings and com'mis- si6n as second lieutenant at Luke Field, near Phoenix. He is now serving at Hamilton Field, near San Francisco. His wife, the former Laura Smith, is here with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ray Smith, of west otjAlgona. '.-•'• Irj 'May, 'afcl, Kenneth Merle Pedersen, third son, class of '39-, joined the nSvy arid today he is serving iix-: a naval tfaining station at Norfolk, Virginia. He is a Private Richard Vernon Pedersen yeoman first class and as assigned to the personnel office there. 11 might be said here that. Roland and Kenneth both took the examination to join the naval reserves at the same time but Roland failed in physical, or they might be serving together today. . The fourth son, Vernon Richard Pedersen, class of '43, left Friday night for Camp Dodge and on Saturday was registered as-, .one 01 Uncle Sam's def endeirs. Richarc completed his i schoolifig ;here .this He has been' erhployed'af ter schoo and on Saturdays with several different Algona firms, during the past winter with the Upper Des Moines. Richard hopes to be assigned to a training camp in the west, having a desire to be near the mountains and the ocean. And so Mrs. Marie L. Pedersen gives up her four sons to fight for her country's freedom. Four of Algeria's youths from the same home, all of them splendid boys upright, decent, respected by all and well liked. The mother holds to herself this comforting thought — the boys keep her in mind witn their regular letters. And to ease the strain of loss experienced by a mother's heart, the wives of the two are with their husband's mother as 'much- 'tis possible.
