A Christmas package for happy Corporal Robert B. Chamberlin, member of a United States Marine Corps unit stationed in the southwestern Pacific. Christmas for this Marine Corps unit will lack the proverbial trimmings on this island of coconut palms and bananas, but packages and mail from home helped make up for that. Chamberlin, a native of Corning, New York, is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Howard B. Chamberlin of 203 Norwood Street, Painted Post, New York. He was made a Private First Class on March 23 of 1942 and a Corporal on October 23. Note that the package, which arrived early in November is addressed to PFC Chamberlin.
