TWINS NOW TOGETHER
The Malone twins, Lloyd and Floyd, who were inducted into the service several months ago from Comanche County, had hoped to serve together, but were sent to different camps. Lloyd was sent to Florida and Floyd held at Ft. Riley, but they finally have been re-united. It all came about by their mother, Mrs. J.H. Malone of Coldwater, writing a letter to the President. The letter was turned over to the War Department, and through an official order, Lloyd has been sent back to Ft. Riley, where the boys are together. They have been inseperable companions throughout their lives and this had been their first separation.
