Navy Buddies

After further digging on, I found this July, 1960 blurb in the Lebanon Daily News. It is accompanied by a picture of Gerald I’ve never seen before. Unfortunately, it’s very blurry and smudged. I’ve contacted the Lebanon Daily News to see if I can get a copy but so far have not been successful.

UPDATE! I’ve found the photo!

NAVY BUDDIES- Enlisting in the U.S. Navy recently under the “Buddy Program” were Gerald E. Kline, 19, son of Mr. and Mrs. Daniel A. Kline, 127 W. Church St., Annville; William E. Waltman, 17, son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward R. Waltman, Cornwall; and William T. Adams, 17, son of MSgt. and Mrs. Thomas J. Adams, 35 N. Third ST., Lebanon. The three will remain together during recruit training at Great Lakes Naval Training Station. Kline attended Annville-Cleona High School, Waltman attended Cornwall High; and Adams attended Lebanon High before enlisting.


  • How did Gerald know Waltman and Adams?
  • Where are Waltman and Adams now?

My name is Courtney. I'm a copywriter in Philadelphia. I've recently started digging into my family history and trying to find out information about my grandparents. They were killed in 1965 by a drunk driver. This blog will chronicle the search to find out who they were, what they were like and what the world is missing out on now that they're gone.

    Hello!! My name is Amy Waltman and William Waltman is my Dad!! I was searching the Internet to see if there were any articles of his Navy days because I’m working on my family tree. I read what you were trying to do and I wanted to help!! Dad has a pretty good memory…and he’s still alive and kicking. I will ask him about anything you would like…he doesn’t have great hearing over the phone so it might be difficult for you to talk to him directly. Email me if you’d like
