To Relatives of Men In


Armed Forces of

Their Country



We want to again call the attention of our

readers to the fact that we are still working on

our list of Okeechobee boys who are in the
Armed Forces of the country and while we

have succeeded in getting a large number of ; .

their names and addresses the list is far

from complete as there are more than one

hundred Okeechobee county boys now in the
service of their country.

If you have not turned in the name and

I. address of those in your family who are now

in the service be sure and do it without further -
delay so that we may complete our list ,

as soon as possible.
Every person in Okeechobee County is
0. .
anxious to see the complete list of our fight

ing men but we can not get it complete

unless the correct name and address is givento
