Hold Reunion in Rome, Italy
A Shelby-Cedar Lake reunion was held in Rome, Italy recently when S/Sgt. Robert Sirois and
S/Sgt. Claude "Gabby" Hall of Shelby, met to spend the day together, a letter to Bob's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Earl Sirois, relates. During the day the two Shelby boys met Cpl. Robert Dickerson of Cedar Lake. The boys spent an enjoyable day together and without doubt the residents of southern Lake county received a thorough "going over."
