East Berne Welcomed Soldier Home.

N. D. Gallup, George Crary and J. L. Borst acted as a committee of three appointed by the East Berne Citizens’ committee to motor to Albany last Monday evening, June 9, to meet the 7:30 from New York which brought home Wagoner Frank J. Wagoner, jr., son of Frank J. Wagoner of East Berne. On arriving at the station they found all his relatives and friends from Albany there to greet him. Then the committee in the auto motored back to East Berne and was met at Gallup’s bridge by the East Berne drum and fife corps and the Citizens’ association. Upon the arrival at his home Mr. Wagoner was greeted by his home folks, after which he made a short speech in which he thanked the Red Cross for what they had done for the boys at the front and also his friends for the letters he received during his time in camp and in France. In the near future he will entertain his friends with tales of his one and a half year’s experience with Uncle Sam. Tables were spread for 120 guests. After the “eats,” dancing was  enjoyed until the early hours of the morning. Wag. Frank J. Wagoner, jr., was with the 112th Heavy Field artillery, which is called the Blue and Gray division.
