The following article was found in the April 29, 1943, Lowell Tribune on page 2, column 2:
Mrs. H. A. Dodge has received a letter from her son, Sgt. Robert Dodge, in Australia, in which he sent welcome news of his brother, Sidney Dodge. Robert was granted a seven-day furlough and went over to the Solomon Islands where he located Sidney in a hospital, still suffering with malaria. Sidney is with the Marines and was in the first force to land on Guadalcanal last year.
