George Nodruft

GEORGE L. NODRUFT, the son of Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Nodruft, of this city, who moved to this vicinity from Missouri about three years ago, at the time that this country became engaged in the world war, was very anxious to get into the service. Many branches of the service were considered and finally decided to enlist in the navy, which he did May 1st, 1918, and was sent to the Great Lakes Naval training station to receive his training for duty. He remained at this station until the month of
August when with a number of the boys was transferred to Philadelphia. At this place he was assigned to the war ship, “Camden.” At one time during the epidemic which prevailed throughout the camps of the country, he was afflicted with the Spanish Influenza, but fully recovered in a very short time. He is so very well pleased with the life of a sailor that his parents in this city are of the impression that he will possibly not ask to be mustered out of the service.
