  • Note: Kimberly Sailor Is Home After 21 Months in Pacific Areas

    A veteran of both the European and Asiatic-Pacific theaters, George Vanden Hogen, radarman second
    class, has been spending a leave at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Vanden Hogen, 226 S. Washington street, Kimberly. He served for ight months in the Atlantic on convoy and patrol duty aboard a destroyer and now he has just completed a 21-month stretch in the Pacific aboard a communications flag ship. He saw action in the Marshall islands, at all three of the Marianas taken by the Americans, Saipan, Tinian and Guam, as well as in the Philippines, including Leyte, Luzon and Zamboanga, Mindanao. He was also at Iwo Jima for a couple of days. Philippines liberation ribbons have adorned the uniforms of many returning veterans these days, but few have the two battle stars that Vanden Hogen's boasts. There are
    three qualifications for the two stars, first, that the serviceman shall have been in Philippine waters
    a minimum of 30 days; second, that he shall have participated in the initial invasion, Oct. 17 to 20,
    1944; and third, that he shall have been under actual air or surface attack.
    Vanden Hogen also has two battle stars on his Asiatic-Pacific ribbon, a European theater ribbon
    with one star, an American theater ribbon and the good conduct medal.
    The beef steaks that Appleton butcher shops are conspicuously without most of the time didn't reach any parts of the Pacific that Vanden Hogen got to, either, he said, but there was plenty of mutton. Because of the long supply lines, the only eggs and milk the sailors got were of the powdered variety, but they had ice cream about twice a week, since they made their own.
    OPA price ceilings apparently were never heard of in the Pacific regions where beer sold for $2 or
    $3 a bottle, the Kimberly sailor said. Except for those rare occasions when the navy provided
    some free beer for beach recreation parties, drinking was an expensive pastime. Vanden Hogen praised the mail service, and said that as far as he
    knew not one airmail or first class letter sent to him had ever been lost. Packages, however, didn't always make it. After his leave he will go to Dearborn, Mich., for advanced radar training.
