Army Assignments Reunite Brothers.  The “fluke” of army assignments panned out very, very nicely for Chris and Robert Grinstead, sons of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Grinstead.  Cpl. Chris has been assigned for several months to Gunter Field, Alabama, and Private Robert only recently completed a special course in army administration at the University of Oklahoma.  Imagine their consternation when Robert reported to Gunter Field and further assignment which landed him right in the same office with his brother, at a desk right across the aisle.  Now we wouldn’t call that the usual army “luck,” but in this case, it really was luck!  So if any of you gals want to write to Robert, you can get his address from Mrs. Chris at Grinstead’s Market.
