Winged Wedding

Miami, Fla.

S/Sgt. Walt R Johnson of Chicago, Ill., was at the alter getting married here after a long hitch at a bomber base in Greenland where GIs use interphone language all day long.

The chaplain asked him the fateful question: "Do you, Walter take the woman, Helen, to be your lawful wedded Wife?"

Walt nodded nervously.

"Roger," he said.
