Korean Waif Gives Yanks Brief Relief

With U.S. 3d Div-Discovery of a stranded two-year old, orphaned Korean child and the subsequent care tendered the infant gave the battle hardened men of Company D, 15th Regiment, a brief relief from the duties of war.

Later when the child was well enough to be moved he was sent to an orphanage but not before the men had time to think of the necessity of the orphanages in Korea.

When a plea was put out for orphanage, Company D, came through with flying colors contributing $2240. Funds from the whole 15th Regiment amounted to $7818.30
