time and the three went to Louisville together and were put into
the Navy. Then a big Marine walked over and said to all three
of them that he needed one of them to go to the Maries and
didn’t care which one. Willie said he opened his big mouth and
said if all three could go that they would do that. The Marine
replied; “All of you are now in the Marines.” They were in boot
camp only 7 days before the war ended. All of them served
their 3 months in boot camp together at Paris Island. Willie
was then shipped to Panama and served 13 months and was then
discharged because the war was over.
