Three Serve Overseas
Mr. and Mrs. M. Haddy, 525 Carolina, S.E., have 3 sons, 2 of whom are paratroopers, serving overseas.  Cpl George Haddy, a paratrooper in the 506th battalion, left the states in September and was in England when last heard from.  Cpl Haddy's battalion received a great deal of publicity throughout this country when it was used as an experiment to test the stability of the men.  They marched 118 miles in 2 1/2 days in full equipment from Toccoa, Ga. to Atlanta, Ga.
   Tom Haddy, electricians mate 3/d is now on board ship in the southwest Pacific.  He has served on both oceans and following duty in the Caledonia area came back on a transport ship to San Diego, Ca. to attend an electronic-giro school there.  He had been serving on an ammunition carrier.
   Pvt Frank "Speck" Haddy, also a paratrooper, left for overseas before Christmas and has not been heard from yet.  Upon fist entering the service in Feb. 1943, he was in regular army but volunteered for paratrooper service and took training at Fort Benning, Ga.  Pvt Haddy when in high school here was manager of the Mohawk basketball team in 1940, the year all five men on the team made all-state.
   Still in school here in his senior year is Jim Haddy, 17, U.S.N.R. aviation cadet, who upon being graduated will begin training in the Navy V-5 program.  He qualified as a cadet in physical and mental tests at Minneapolis, Minn. recently.
