Cleamon Gale Haun

The Western Star, January 4, 1952.


Gale Haun, son of Mr. and Mrs. Myrl E. Haun of Coldwater, arrived home December 23 for a Christmas leave and left on Tuesday of this week for San Diego to resume his duties as fireman on a destroyer which has been undergoing repairs since last July.

The ship will leave for Korean waters this week and Gale expects to be gone from the six to eight months this time. He previously had seen four months of sea duty in the Korean area. He likes Navy life very much and it appears to agree with him, also.

There's an open gate.
At the end of the road
Through which each must go alone
And there in the light we can not see
Out Father claims His own;
Beyond the gate your loved one finds happiness and rest
And there is comfort in the though
That a loving God knows best.
