Lt. William Baie-- Part 6: His Brother An Ensign in the Navy
The only time that he had been home since entering the service was for two days in July. he had accompanied the body of a buddy who was killed to Syracuse and had stopped in DeKalb for the two days while on his way back to his field.
I wonder if this body he escorted to Syracuse was of a fellow aviation cadet from Williams Field?
BROTHER IS AN ENSIGN
His brother, Ensign William Baie, is stationed at Corpus Christi, Tex., both sons of Mr. and Mrs. Baie being in the service. He is survived by his parents and the one brother in navy service.
The body of the DeKalb flyer will be brought back to this city for services but no arrangements had been made early this afternoon. Aviation Cadet Baie was very popular and active among the younger set of this city and his death will be mourned by hundreds in the community.
A Sad Story. --GreGen
