Blossburg Boys Arrive Home
Raymond Lawrence GUERNSEY, who has been overseas for thirteen months arrived home Tuesday.  Mr. Guernsey was captured by the Germans and held prisoner for eight months, working nearly twenty-four hours a day and living on very poor and scanty food.  He has some very interesting experiences to relate.  Mr. Guernsey has the distinction of being the only Tioga county man to be held prisoner b the Germans.  Machine Gunner Glen Ellis, of the famous 77th, arrived home Tuesday, after seeing thirteen months service in France.  Mr. Ellis was wounded in the battle of the Argonne Forest.  Fred Bryant arrived home Tuesday after thirteen months service overseas.  Mr. Bryant was severely wounded in the battle at Chateau Thierry.  He was also gassed and was in a hospital for several months.  Sergeant Kimbal Marvin and Frank Roberts arrived home Wednesday evening.  Both men saw some hard fighting in the Argonne Forest.
