okay okay
Wednesday January 30th 2008 I am I
for the veterans
project of the Library of Congress American Folklife Center
app video X Campbell Hall


Henry Radcliffe is the director of lighting sound and camera

tomorrow morning
where you were and what you were doing friends World work who broke out in the background
okay maybe I should back up even
listen to get that will be the background of my parents and Tobuscus
my father had been in the First World War as a hospital corpsman


and he had seen all the kinds of problems arise if you want to call problems
I have a battle artillery that owes me he would go up there and pick up the pieces
Pizza Sutter speak in this hospital train for 2 years and he had a very
very vivid memory of that and he was a very good story
storytellers why it hurt all kind of store is like that feel it when the address of the neck
does initiate a year get the address to 21 then and he said well you’re
your only 14 15 uf I won’t have to worry about that so now ur back


what back to December 7th 1941 Lima senior high school
backup even if either step I’m a mother was a school teacher and
so I had to learn how to read about about 45 and we’re a mile
miles from the country school I went to witches of northern Minnesota
and so they said well don’t go to school until after
I’d say about April 4th April I went to first grade 10’s
5a strange sex laws in the first grade for a couple of weeks and then the next


then I end up in the next grade up because I was the only one of the great
grizzly 20 semanas School for the Deaf NV 11 years old and in the 8th grade
8th grade and I was like it anyway and so they were going to high school
highway 65 pounds of pot for 36 and I was 12 years old
what I was 15 lb war
Atlas and I thought oh well what the heck I’m 15 build rafters


do they have the war lasted longer than people figures and the agent draft
Catholic down to at and so then I am I
the graduate high school if your 16 went to a community college for 2 years and graduate from
when I was 17 does it just a graduation at 17th of March
24th of March I turn 18 and now to see with this
Farm deferred can I live in a farm that only lasted 5 months old and I was 18


18418 means your eligible for draft so I said okay looking
I looked in there look local paper has a little bit of a notice about this day only
it said take this ed test annual
then be assigned to a radio technician training for 11 train from a well
how well since my father had described in vivid details what happens when your part of it
if a tree in this is what most guys wear my calibrachoa to speak we’re going into
they did it didn’t look too promising from thats that


captain Slate’s weather okay I’ll try the Navy so I go into the Navy recruiter Garden City
what does it take to pass this test is worth it involve a lot of physics in electrical engineering
mathematics in Africa now I’m a country boy with high school education
Mike mathematics was geometry that was it anyways
high brush up a little bit and take the test
sexy and I know it took the top of the high school graduating class in 1st place to take the test
couldn’t just take it anyway so I passed it will be dark in color


only 5% of people pass it on top of that this 1942
4444 on 45 and wayside 1944
and so is that okay so they said don’t come now don’t come today
do they be drafted wait until we tell you when to c** inside
insult then not until January 16th 1945
50 actually go and be inducted into the US in 2008
do a special Wyckoff party radio technician training program


and they put you into a special group of in the book
boot camp because you only had one month book intervals have up to a tree
what’s a boot camp so I ended up in Great Lakes in love
January of 1945 well I’ve been raised in northern
northern Minnesota and the ID the day before they actually
when is it is January 15th 2401 skating all day
outside for hockey play hockey 11 and then I went off to Great Lakes


well I never been to say warm place in my life I mean praise God when above freezing and stuff
every other day will it get into the strip
Aizen got great lakes that you’re in the next year olds in San Francisco Treasure Island next year
backyard in Hawaii and I realized then that you would have to have to go free
freezing in middle of November State snow on the ground to the middle of market replace the world
because I’ve been rented anyway what is this sub frame program the foot
I put that is usually about I don’t know exactly but 90 people in a company and we were


party company in the others that
that were at in the boot camp they were in 3 different
different Liran different companies we were in one
artis I had 3 stripes on the sleeves at because a
Prince daemon has only one if semen thick glasses to an F First Class
specimen has three and we were sworn in the equivalent of corporal in army is
Simmons first at your first day of the service you were getting ready yeah we ready advance


advanced did that because it was a little bit of a do
because I ma the other sailors in the boot camp wood theme song
songs like take down your gold star mother put up a blue one instead
your son will never get hurt computing the square root of pie I like that C
and we birds Connor it was saying the NBA r63 r34
mp3 stripes on Ashley’s here we are the Fighting Irish play that causing anyway
you got sworn in first class switches


squirt a lot to get that wavy headband with elastic month there
when I went to a primary training which was
who was a wee dog thinking we work at 6 that fat bitch look for the book anthem

what are two hours of electricity as per day and two hours of
what lab which mint pudding O’Casey’s AV receiver
receivers together in all kinds of stuff like that soldering and welding in the Lord anyway that


that end in 2 hours in math well I say well I just see this message just a
Taylor review la review
the first day after that it was all brand new in
there isn’t another incentive for this condition I always kind
what kind of like to learn stuff it was interesting for me to learn at the hotel
are something besides just be in the service of the states of weather is that in Santa
other instead of that is a had a little formula RT radio technician


fo for a round or whatever you wanna call it
blackout party over h20 with me
have you been in there for a while there’s any guys out to be out of the sea
why you over there over the age 20 20 way I want to think that they wanted
wanted his drivers for these Lana graficas you need a lot of those
drivers because he’s only guys head sticking out so they have at least two of them
think so anyway there is this other on the other side not to fly


what the funk out Plus incentive to learn something
no you get the stripes stripes
what they’re worth

explain the symbol thats on the right shoulder of uniform okay that’s what the color
ruptured duck ruptured duck is a theme of a story
so bad it’s your birthday and this is the radio technician third class


oil changes for a technician to Electronic Technician
yeah okay anyway
the well every week yes yes yes and it was completely completely nude
and I was completely out of my element because most guys head headache
year 2 electrons an earring in the head advanced math and head unit
long as I’m here I still remember his name but
I do remember his name but I want anyway he has


masters in chemistry and so this is the kind of people that was competing again
against what I know about my own self my own background
in the after first day or so it’s completely brand new we talked about everything
what kind of a mathematics algebra geometry trigonometry we got it
calculus differential calculus and wave Sirius
and I’m sitting there 2 hours a day
just being overwhelmed that’s like what’s in a old saying but they can’t drink on


drink out of the fire hose will listen to it was for me and I thought on this isn’t love
and this help me
how to steal okay I want to do this a lot to learn but at the same time
I don’t want to go to Caesar speak right away hold on
go off on a tangent here this and help me later on when I was an advisor to
undergraduate students because I worked 7 days a week
every waking moment Dallas can you keep in this program because it was


growing so fast I never been challenged but like that because I don’t fight Welling
well and all my stars before that but never at the rate at which this is coming in anyway
when they have a student come into being a doctor check with you please a drop
white milk from chemistry like at 15 hours and I just cant get it you know that
that’s what I said okay I what were you at 6 o’clock this morning well then better than Robertson
well I would love it I want it girl I dont have it all cuz if you tell me a story


door and get to work well I was little sis say I didn’t have any
kids come back to me that way it was interesting to because
because I knew that I was the helmet in this daydream
that if you really worked at something you could do it and I work at like I said 7 days a week
every waking moment I did there
3044 industry primarily numbers 44 in this book 21 with on
the other 23 with anyway


so I had to be the 21st guy I had to be the 21st guy says I’m just hanging
getting my teeth anyway that was first elimination
what go do with a coffee elementary Lake Christine Brady material
more the same only even faster more complicated go back to Great Lakes for 3 month program
well I have a two week period in which you do this and then another 2 weeks
2 week period another to weight ratio can you find a girl ok if you flunk back 1
you can repeat as a repeater phone back and then you can do this if you do this once


and sometimes it love to twice you can do it not the same one hear that
anyway they had the steps we go
when to expect 2 weeks into it and number people did Frank Becker
repeat is it called it and I once dated that your kind of pancakes
no I’m sorry I love this program to study well
well they had a practice sessions before these two weeks
test is there they are they were all the multiple choices in their own


adderall machine created in I had learned how to answer multiple
multiple choice answers one of your strong with one on fious misleading one in India
get to sleep when the other and I think I did this for about 7 months I could
pass a test that had nothing I knew nothing about it just on the basis of traffic out there
what he way are they can you cut a practice test before I 77
702 passed because sometimes instructors little bit different solid has a college a f**
Jay Sekulow acquitted I like the first test prices at 33


23 now that’s a long way from 7901 with his pecker
forget it you’re the f*** out of lockout photo
phone number WIC meant by practice test 55 doing pretty good
I’m pretty good but I’m along with insanity a second time 2nd week
can week that I took it I get 70 with that
that I went on because I’ve been working so hard that I was won
I was one out and the other guys have been posting that has the lyrics sample


is it ok to use earn your Navy issue 50 or you can buy
goodbye or take your a couple a circle which is electronic technician
type of thing because that’s all the formulas in 4 in penis and inductance in the resistance
electroform is in there
1044 slide rule at night then you don’t pay the Navy 11

orange crate Along Blog 2 pieces of wood Once ler


okay I’ll try that is that the Ice Age that thing because it was a park
idea fitness down the archive done in Florida State at archived
I got down there anyway I say that think justice and I always kept at my desk
is that that reminded me of how it was anyway so
I was he at 21 first guy went under this tree with leaves
and I’ve been made the 70 17 hole and then for that played on


platonic Gatsby easy because everybody else is now getting brand new event is well
Alex Grey Eagle Point Oregon
I made it okay that really train program at Great Lakes
Fremont Street and I was good at making things I could
welding soldering so far this year at school bag tonight at 1030
City College type thing at the address to Minnesota help me there a court inform you
learn how to make things I could do I could do things make things in it that’s also important because


you’re as electronic technician or radio technician is a
maintenance repair and installation
do things to as well not only with your head but the other bills with your hands
okay so now I’m there in it okay to write
Wright Junior College Herschel Jerry Caldwell ID pick up anything okay to go to
go to ideal Monte California or a girl says the Maryland Fourier elementary LaVista
and I said okay I’ll go for those they sent back to Great Lakes


its okay you can go to the Gulfport Oregon to Corpus Christi party
Bethesda Maryland warrior advance so I picked up all of those that did something
Treasure Island California
best brother things to a guy that I like ever ask what I just did
voice is like these thermostats on the wall then I think there’s anything
can you put it in there anyway I been going
anyway the other this up 21 RV 10


winter Great Lakes Illinois 91 on the now we leave narrows down from that
and actually up in the overall I’m getting ahead of the game 3250 of us
St Elizabeth in about the same time only 9 guys with straight lines without lifting pen
f****** back of these was a dislike out and I have to be one of those I am I
is it mostly just because fear determination Treasure Island
44 you get a free month of transmitters which means you
learn how to set up transmitters and transmitters in the Navy are


we are not little things I don’t know how the one here is for the halibut this is
these are ones we walk into the place anyway walk into the open door walk into the
into the transmitter that says that day and then the next month is receivers in the next month is radar
next month at Sonar x1 this fire control here
and then you do that for 7 month well
radar at that time was very secret the components and circuitry
we’re all very secret adderall behind high fences


lab 3 worth now that I’ve Berkeley lip service was open
did all the classes with old very confined
will it rain guards the gates in the head of a bad just let you in and out of her stuff
lil aside from that we went to class at 7 in the morning till almost
almost 500 5 days a week and then 6 days 26 day weather
we there were on Liberty every other week or we had test every other week so we were
Radio Disney songs be in the Navy has a regular hours like


atill pay for less on it well because I wish
we had these longer hours we gotta break in the morning about 10
1030 or so and so we’re behind this big high fences with a ring guard
guard inside this enclosure in a self important
young officer on the outside citizenship in
we knew we could get anything that bad and he said
an erection with me but they said you know what you can do with your orders in


places where you can put that four sides and all kinds of obscenities a cup ok
okay you’re all I need to get a captains mast today date for the ringer
partner tracker Sydney Godot has best way to invest we could get in
anyway they sell ring guards at hot and they say I’m going in
I’m going to step forward which has a slope of this line with red in it
elective on the ankle broken leg hold em up and then we all just walk over there


Tim Hall of Fame held in mouth famous for this because we were in
bury a confined cornerstone see all her books work your butt
like this like this hello circuitry for everything
Industrial locked up every night in a safe every night we if you want to study him
you had to go back in it take special permissions what so you been therapy Dark Souls edition
after the date when your guy to f*** at your hands the circuitry in southwest Missouri
is there a secret that time because well I’ll give it here


the IFF is identification friend or foe is radar
triggers a transponder in a plane it’s either you or the enemy
it’s our side of your neck and it comes back and says ok shoot the sky down
discada well of present commercial planes have the same thing
the radar screen when I send out a signal is Vince Vaughn
ponder on a plane with sandbags the number of the plane so you know
who you are and where you are us so that’s not it at that time is very very high secret


there is no circuit for his all black and white under normal
radar sonar a transmitter receiver
cables might have 20 different wires in a cuantas color coded Tulsa
killswitch you end up with one hear you I know which one it is at the other end to because it
color coated in certain way they did regularly is to
give you a sudden test for color blindness because
color blind you were out this is no way just like you can’t be a player if you have migraine


migraines what they did this and periodically just making sure because you want me shirt
this is this is not something you anyway
so back to the transmitters receivers Minnesota anyway
you did a couple hours of lapping the last word music couple shooting
they would put bad tubes in or short out something
singer but a bad component in or do something like that to the equipment and then
you would be responsible for getting it fixed and south


I was I was good at that I really like
it’s a matter of problem solving if you have the circuitry and then you can tell what days
the boat bully should be here pay here should be there
so you could test out in a very systematic weight well some people weren’t as good as other
fĂ­sica do the math video
figure out how to solve the problem with YouTube bad
attracted to that went on for 7 months all of these things


we were in San Francisco Bay Treasure Island in Sonar
sonar sound navigation and ranging which is is a big
diaphragm with a vibrator finger send out a signal or listen
5c no single thing about me is there and then comes back
and you learned a lot about acoustics because sonar is sound definition
Raiders radio station songs about 760
I feel better in white gold


that’s what the water temperature in the salinity influences
phone says the return episode that if you were me this at something
something in your car in very cold and water that changes its date
the distance that you’re doing cuz he’s distancing range radar
ranging in distance radio distance and reading is measured how
how far is it how far back and tells you where you are in


so that the sonar is not only that but also listening so you listen
and you could put the is heads for the calm down into the water
the water and then a macaw Santa Fe Bay San Francisco Bay near the flu
water taxi out there you could hear the fastest
Oris big chef tell
and you can tell almost 5 numbers revolutions in and how fast the ship is going so good
even under water you can tell what is go


is going on elsewhere on the radar thing because there is this
where is this before computers you had to get a the range or within
what’s a relative bearing fit 02 berry
North and South you aim the thing the radar
antenna Kathy
object that you picked up and then you determine how far you are away from it
and then you do this a couple different times and then you determine the range


range of a first and then the angles are you know when you have too much crying
triangulation you can tell where you are and where you are and where they are
they are so you don’t want to run into them or you are by server so whatever
even if you have controlled the fire the guns you run over it
what’s the weather is going to be so you should quit going to be now
what is it when I saying that I have messages without shoring and Laura
Laura Charette is short range navigation triangulation to the head


antennas at different places in the world and then you can tell her you were quite precise
precisely by D & C triangulation what long range AR lower
Carly Lauren is also that I needed the precursors of what now GPS
ghost from the via satellite see you get
you get triangulation from dare to dream where you are well in Lawrence
what was used to somebody later things to bomb worth
use that to determine out the GPS texting anyway so that was another thing


also got involved in this way I was
I wish you all this in Medford close the top of the class in this thang in
again out of the 90 something went into this particular group only 44 went out of it
dress tomorrow at the seasons be interesting aspect of it
that I thought about later that is about strength
blacks were only human
cooks or Stewart ever never in any thing else lyrics


foot insoles companies are in to that position we had to black
fl oz in a couple thousand witches of the season
I don’t know how many exactly when it made video
videos out there so it is this so recognition school in Treasure Island
I don’t like I had to take it out there anyway to and they were the only two
22 in the whole thing because it has services at that they were very close
closest I get everything that I will have another thing hears Lil B


is little bit more upper connect to the LEAs service in areas
in a maze of a 1945 D European war
in the end there is no celebration there is no nothing
all the war ended in there that was the end of the present world
Roosevelt died Truman took over interests no big
Big Bang thoery water/ice concern
well I don’t know why or why not it just wasn’t


it wasn’t being so thirsty it in in and it was
headbands sold on out this worth the other thing as a leading up to
who was that Treasure Island with the embarkation point
for the Pacific Fleet in the face
Pacific border speak the Japanese from and
the embarkation
holding area for these people are going to go on these


ships and boats in Fort Worth or he is behind a very high
barbed wire fences here and over about another 560
gap between the two in a because I would walk by them
why this guys on the other side every time I went throught Tahoe
hopelessly died today hair guys on the other side that are going to go on the ships see
San Francisco Bay has fiber 615 one day and one when you wake up
actually look up liquor sold Philadelphia consensus over over over over


Lisa Smith business but the only thing
the only thing in the Treasure Island Navy and Marines
so anyway there sitting there about her standing there about 5
5 minute the most 5 10 feet away from you and there’s 2 barbed wire
Eric hi bavari Sprint if you spoke to those guys on that side they put you under
you on that side until that roof left with my liquor so well that’s not
that’s not very good for your classroom situation because you need fixing


texting you this out to see with me anyway to trailer
I sense a difficult it was built more than difficult
guys be up there like everyday
note to my wife widgets would you mind calling my girlfriend remind u joint
anything I send a song to my mother at right by me
ft bliss emotional affair
this broken down there while because it you know that those guys


and it was not on the talk about the Japanese going to give up
there should be some guys here the greedy Prins balls in it in it
one of the guys Tim Corbin this with my Collies I was a bitch masturbate
what city was one that directed the up both into the various places in
what are the island to stay in Vegas for 10000 dreams killed over today.
a period is like 1000 Japanese killed in the deep
bodies were so thick in the water they couldn’t get the landing craft A to Z show anymore


in the next day water was so filled with maggots that they couldn’t get the
get the bolts off because a negative plug up the water the cooler in Florida
guys were involved in this no secrets this is what was going on it
so this is this your ignoring on the other side
there’s a guy you know that this girl but is it called it
The Witcher rumors and Latimer true and Latimer not but NFL
as soon as you know that things were not ready I’m going well in


the Pacific they had held the Japanese back from
completely occupying say football in this is like that but it wasn’t easy
easy going going back the other way Viggle get his ass or your love it
I love it when they drop those last two bombs on Japan
is the happiest riot in San Francisco to other 7 million people
on the West Coast ready to go because I respect a million casualties
back of the steps it takes about 20 people to keep one


Philly alibi for every guy does shooting a gun there’s a lot 2015

and I was one of those guys it was back there I wasn’t gonna be
Charlotte me nothing ever happened to me I didn’t you know anybody
is all terms of comparing with people directly involved in

big hero I’m not nothing I was just wondering eyes and Becca but these guys


did I’m ignoring here you know darn good well that they’re going into harm’s way
pretty good kind of modestly harm’s way accolades

I guess this is a kill or be killed Weber gets it done better is one of the winter
so anyway I ignore those guys in
and then in August when they die
when they drop plumb for 48 hours be


San Francisco outlet number West Coast was just one happy riot
Market Street Mission Street are two very long Broad Street
streets in San Francisco they turned us loose

tylenol sleep and are the only thing I can close to be hard but I still have this
this is a I was walking down the street again
is Mission Street and brook hollow Lakers won


there was a shard of glass about 5 or 6 feet long f*** this big to begin with in
Instagram down to the very sharp point in my buddy and I will walk along gawking at Hollister
in the shard of glass went through my blouse here in between me
give me in that I want all the ways that water so I still have this

thats it thats goes I came but I could kill myself and they were people killed after birth
us some people dropping stuff out of the test or dropping on people


I know if you ever seen these pictures are not but it showed from the top it’s all you see this
white hats in Irvine what we take a picture at the ground
ground level it was the Salem of the white hat on all of the people at the White House on the sailors all that
Hanson fake funny just everything down
find out idea I came back on
back on to the base in a drought and we came back on the bay season 2
two ways when does eat place called Barker dead Bay Area


passport anyway recent deaths in that was a train
train that went on the bottom of the Oakland Bay Bridge in now that’s all it is that’s nothing
does exist anymore they have eight eyes suck cars the one way in this
what time is it dark where you going to work text me okay so I went back in

overwhelming panda run better get to live a simpler life
I still remember Avera
very drunk sailor sitting on the curb with shovel in head on

and that’s stuck in my head white
eBay I still was in school and I tried then to now


and things were kind of a concert in Seoul
so they say that okay I will continue until I can I graduate in January
in 1946 now
and so I said okay whatever
cuz I was in you sign up for the war in
the directory the duration and one year with what you do when you sign up where I was
yeah they made you train on every single


items mentioned sonar radar and not get you out
into the ships in the shooter why can’t they train you on radar Linthicum radar specialist
what’s sonar and then get you out faster because this tiny parachute exception
what problems is your on a ship you might be the only technician
if you know about sonar in the president goes out you’re in trouble
and so if they wanted you to know to be give me a sign any place any time
why can’t I stand that to even though I didn’t use some of the a train


in a general service and she used all of it but a tooth
do only know one thing wouldn’t be very safe
is it because they think you someplace you were your a technician make
you go and be that whatever you are so that’s why you were everybody at your door
do everything to everybody maybe where is good at something anyway
I graduated I graduate yeah and so this is
and so I end up with going back to


Tula i buy Ted leave and went back and forth across the country
Buffy for tennis being on leave and liberty and maybe sometime and liberty and Lee
free Levi should have ended up I went to the US soldiers in Chicago
and I went to the US owes in Milwaukee Great Lakes is halfway between the head Liberty train
train and that means it’s Saturday morning at about 1000
f*** there be a big train there and you’re all jump on it in when you go to
Chicago innroad be 10,000 girls waiting for you in 10,000 parties fun


Best Buy in Milwaukee by lightning in Chicago for the first month and I die
can I go into the US owes a long time Michigan had Village Sylva NC
and so I can okay I’ll go to Milwaukee so I went on Milwaukee Liberty training Gothard
TheraTears 10000 girls in the sign need a party for need party for needs

the day you’re supposed to get on this number train back at 11 o’clock at night well I


as you send inspection at about say at 10 o’clock in the
f****** morning on Saturday and get on the train okay so your inspection you got to have them
waiting on the test form 2b perfect everything is alright okay so talkative
1100 and how can u back drunken dirty Devils
Hartley uniform sailors get back on track if anything
teetotaler it was that because I saw a moor
guy that got into more trouble because of LLC


will say about the one Liberty relieve the pain from bad women good whiskey but not
but not necessarily in that order anyway so that’s what that the Liberty Tree
every train did I had all kind of experiences with
Libertys in Chicago in Milwaukee now I’m a little c***
little country boys never been on a Minnesota or been in any town bigger than St Paul Minneapolis
dallas/fort median hour to license it out exactly did Saint Paul for girls
what goes good with a beard I’ll completely out of my element here


big city burrito in a hole that knowledge big titty things as you get
is all the temptations in the things because of sailors and soldiers worth
good targets in a sense because a generous Pico
speaking they were there and if you hustle them or
do or not the motor to put money away from them they couldn’t come back of the head get back in the basement
disappeared you disappeared it’s a matter of very much community
hello I will say that in Chicago in in Milwaukee there was no


Fresno fear that the San Francisco a little bit different Day of the Dead live
Memphis Tennessee so much in the dark red to get mange all kind of place is it where you put go
how to give your hair a little bit too in that is it
patrol duty in San Francisco in shore patrol duty
involves not only 44 drill bit also worthy
where they came in from the ship is all in the the bay
has a boat or a landing craft if comes into a new place on


on the side of the bed and is a floating thing about a woman
free four feet above the water level so you get out of the border the Atlantic craft what it is from
from this ship this out there bring these guys in for liberty ok so
again the same thing they come back of the ship in the oven

head and a part of the problem of the week


sailors when they got out of there head to speak with room in the back
the back of a truck a pickup truck kind of a thing with more like a dog
picture type thing just remember like Miley vacuum up to the break room
facts of cold and not
human beings anymore anyway I’ll talk to that when you’re on the
shore patrol on the landing craft places were they come into
we had a big long fish hook


what up like this like this official motto of water and stuff does it falling in and then
waves in the bank and get quite high so what happens if
little Anna Griffin Cricut are there from the landing craft a slice of Marin still there
definition water and vomiting Univ of the Bible Easter Bunny crafts

whatever the ship was out there number in and then you get the money that you didn’t


Ariel cake please take him

best of the Chappelle mad at a guy said that kept me so I never trust

think about
NCAA way and protect them from them themselves as well
anyway I was a little bit of that site issues album

When Phil Dziuk was an 18 year old farm boy, he qualified for an eleven month long Navy electronic technician training program, in June 1944. His education in a two year practical program in the School of Agriculture at the University of Minnesota and experience milking cows was a far cry from repair, maintenance and servicing radar, sonar, receivers, transmitters and other electronic gear. He struggled through the program at Herzl college in Chicago, Great Lakes, Treasure Island, California. He served on the USS Ajax, a repair ship that went to Hawaii, the atom bomb test site in Bikini and later served at the transmitter station in Lualualei, Hawaii. Discharged , August 4, 1946, he was welcomed back to Foley, Minnesota and immediately began work in the harvest fields, on August 5. He later took advantage of the GI Bill and taught at the University of Illinois for more than 37 years.
