Harry K. Nodruft

HARRY K. NODRUFT, also a son of Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Nodruft, of this city, and a brother of the boy, whose picture appears above, and like him could not be satisfied until he got into the service of his country. He
could not wait for his draft call and enlisted also May 1st in the Navy and was sent to the Great Lakes Naval Training Station, later to be transferred to Philadelphia and assigned to the “Camden.” He also was unable to escape the Flu epidemic and suffered a siege of the dread disease from which he very soon recovered. The mother is very proud of he two sailor boys and well she may be, for it is seldom that two brothers cling so close together, and a remarkable fact that is seldom duplicated in any family is that these two boys have been constant companions during their entire service. Never at any time have they been assigned to different divisions. Recently when a furlough was granted to one of the boys it was likewise given to the other and they both enjoyed a few days at home together.
