A letter received by the Harold McCanns from their son, Sgt. Jack McCann informs his parents that he is getting along fine. He stated that Feb. 26th will mark the end of his second year in the tropics, and although he supposed he would freeze in the cold weather he would run into when he comes home, he would be so glad to get back he wouldn't care if snow was up to his neck. He thought the censor officer would agree with him, too, as he was also a Hoosier. He also said he received his Christmas package and a copy of the Tribune, and that he and Singleton, a son of the Fred Singletons, of Cedar Lake, read the paper over at least ten times.

The hospital chapel at Hammer Field, Fresno, was the setting Monday afternoon, March 5th, for the marriage of Miss Marie Largent and Sgt. Jackson H. McCann. The double ring ceremony was performed by Chaplain Henry I. Lyon. "Because" and "I Love You Truly" were played by the post organist.
The couple were attended by Pvt. Charles Bigam and the bride's sister, Miss Edna Sue Largent.
The bride chose for her wedding an attractive street dress of powder blue silk crepe with which she wore white accessories. Her corsage was of red rosebuds.
Miss Largent was attired in a pastel pink two-piece dress. Her accessories were white and her corsage was of white carnations.
Following the ceremony a reception was held in one of the ward rooms at the hospital where Sgt. McCann had been a patient for several weeks. A large number of patients, members of the hospital staff, friends and relatives were present to greet the young couple. Cake and ice cream were served and a gift was presented to the bride and groom on behalf of the patients in the ward.
Mrs. McCann is the daughter of Mrs. Sadie Largent of Fowler. She attended the Fowler high school and following her graduation last year has been employed as a window decorator by a large Fresno department store.
Sgt. McCann is the son of Mr. and Mrs Harold McCann of Lowell, Ind. He attended schools in Lowell and enlisted in the service three years ago. He has been stationed at Hammer Field since his recent return from 28 months of overseas service.
The couple will live in Sacramento, where Sgt. McCann has been transferred to McClelland Field. --
