Pvt. Earl Kast Now in Hopsital
Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Velie, Route 1, have received a letter from Private Earl Kast, a preacher who has served in the Eau Claire area, telling of his arrival back in the United States from France, where he became ill last September and was hospitalized. He is now at Stark General Hospital, Ward 57, Charleston, SC.

Private Kast served with a hospital field unit in England and France. He experienced flying bomb attacks, while in England, and was under gunfire and airplane attacks in France, but escaped these without injury, he wrote. He was overseas 10 months. He also states that he is engaged to a Texas girl and that the marriage will take place when he can leave the hospital.
