Two Delmar Men Wounded

Seven Eastern Shoremen have been wounded in the European theater, according to casualty reports which included one bright quip from a Crisfield soldier who said "You can't dodge the Jerries all the time."

They are:

Pfc. Raymond Nichols Trader, of Delmar, was reported wounded in Germany by the War Department to his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Trader. Trader, 18 years old, went into the service in August of last year, and received his training at Camp Blanding, Fla. He had a short Christmas furlough with his parents.

Capt. Willard Fisher, of Delmar, son of Mr. and Mrs, William Fisher, was wounded in Germany. He was among the first to enter the service after war was declared, and was in the employ of the American stores Co., Delmar, prior to entering the service.
