1942, '43, '44. For Christmas dinner at our home on Twentieth Avenue we would entertain two or three army or navy servicemen, arranged for by some volunteer association. Mostly, they were on their way to the Pacific. They were always grateful and some later corresponded with my parents. I would be wearing a similar uniform a couple months later.
