Winterset Madisonian, January 30, 1952, Winterset, Iowa.  Young Marine Served With Forces in Korea Since July 6, 1951.  Pfc. Robert Enright, a well known young man of this community was killed in action in Korea on Jan. 25, according to a telegram received here Tuesday evening by his sister, Mrs. Robert Welty of Winterset.  The government telegram stated: "Deeply regret to inform you that your brother, Private First class Robert Eugene Enright, United States Marine Corps, was killed in action on 25 of January, 1952, in the Korean area in the performance of his duty and service to his country."  The young man was just 21 years of age.  His entire life had been spent in Madison county.  He was born in Crawford township on June 24, 1930, a son of Thomas and Retta Peed Enright.  In 1944 the family moved to Douglas township which was his home until he entered the service.  He attended the Winterset high school, graduating with the class of 1947. He enlisted in the U. S. Marine corps on Dec. 20, 1950, and was shipped overseas on June 18, 1951. Since July 6, 1951, he had been in action in Korea, serving with the Seventh regiment of the First Marine division.  Pfc. Enright had been wounded in action on Dec. 7, 1951, but had recovered and returned to active duty.  Since leaving rest camp, he had been in the front lines again about 12 days, before his death occurred.  Both of this young soldier's parents preceded him in death.  His nearest relative is his sister, Mrs. Mary Welty of Winterset.  He also leaves two uncles, Roy Peed of Earlham and Ira Peed of Winterset.
