Birth: Jul. 1, 1924
Gallia County
Ohio, USA
Death: Apr. 29, 1945, Philippines

Pvt. Robert L. Saunders, who was wounded on Luzon, April 17, died in a hospital there April 19. The death message was received Friday in a telegram to his father, Shirley Saunders of Gallipolis Route 2. It also contained an expression of sympathy and the promise of a letter to follow.

"Bob" would have been 21 years old in July. He entered service in March, 1943 and had spent about 20 months overseas. He was a fine young man and his death has stunned the family, their relatives and friends.

Besides the father, he is survived by a brother, Pvt. Hudson Saunders, also serving his country overseas and a sister, Mrs. Merrill Harrison, grandparents and a host of other relatives.

It will be recalled that Bob's mother, Mrs. Belva Halley Saunders, died very suddenly last July (missing words) for the last rites.

[Stone: Bethel Cemetery, Bladen, Ohio Township, July 1, 1924; April 29, 1945]
