FIGHTING GRANDMA GETS RUMLEY FAMILY BACK IN WAR

From the July 15, 1944 Edition of Stars and Stripes

SOMERS, Mont., July 14 (ANS)–Grandma and Grandpa Rumley grumbled because their grandson was too young for military duty. Then their son was discharged after combat duty, leaving the Rumleys minus a representative in uniform.

So Grandpop tried to enlist, but was ruled too old. That was too much for Grandma. She headed for the WAC recruiting office and now is Pvt. Rumley.
