Pages of History: Local soldier wounded in France

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, January 1945:

Word has been received here that Robert Bolen, who is with General Patch’s Seventh Army in France, was wounded in action. The news came in a telegram from the War Department to his wife, Mrs. Ann Bolen, who resides in Crescent City. The Seventh Army has been engaged in some of the heaviest fighting in the present German offensive. 

Another telegram was received by Mrs. Bolen a few days later saying “nothing serious and nothing permanent. Don’t worry.”
