Walter Pearce Ryan at Home.
Saturday Mr. George Swearingen

who had been transferred to Camp
Gordon. After they arrived at camp
he was fortunate in obtaining a fur
lough for 15 days and the three mo
tored back home Sunday. It was a
happy moment 'for the members of
this home circle when Pearce crossed
the threshold for the first timr. in
many months. He was wounded in the
Argonne Forest October 9. His com
pany went into battle about five
o'clock in the' morning and he was
wounded in the ankle by an explod
ing shell about 4:30 in the afternoon.
The shell that exploded near Pearce
caused the instant death of tv/o men
of his company and wounded four or
five, practically all of them suffering
more than did Pearce did. He was ot
once carried back about half a mile
behind the lines but on account of the
continued rain of shells fr?>m the
Germans, he did not receive medical
raid until the next morning about 9
?o'clock. Pearce says this was the most
horrible night that he has ever spent

it seem- as if every minute would be

to Edgefield yesterday morning and
was very warmly greeted by his
friends here. He is the only young
white man to receive a permanent in
jury and knowing that he made the
sacrifice for us-for our home and
those who are near and dear to us
we feel like taking off our hat to him
every time we see him.
Pearce is a brave, manly boy, a
very worthy son of patriotic pa
rents who ' sent three sons into the
service of their county. Pearce Ryan
will, all down through the years, oc
cupy a warm place in the hearts of
the patriotic people of Edgefield
