Wounded, Transferred, Husband Missed Mail
So She Cables Him
(Newpaper clipping from 1945)

Pvt. Oscar C. Warmuth, hospitalized in England for wounds received in on Germany Nov. 24, where he was serving with the 9th Army, appealed in a letter received Thursday by the Eagle, Convair plant newspaper, for help in locating his wife with whom he had lost contact.

The soldier wrote that he was married in October 1943, and had been overseas since last September. He lost contact with his wife and the last he heard of her she was employed in Convair's field operations department here.

The Eagle staff checked with the plant personnel office and located Mrs. Eva D. Warmuth in the metal bench department. Immediately after work she sent her husband a cablegram.

Mrs. Warmuth said that she has written her husband daily since receiving notification by the War Department that he had been wounded--but he has been transferred three times and the letters and Christmas packages she sent have not yet caught up with him.

Mrs. Warmuth lives at 3717 El Campo. Before entering the service, her husband was also employed by Convair.
