Wednesday, Sept 15:
Cleaned the house. Over to the folks awhile. Pete there putting up hay. At nite Buss came over & took a bath. Told him goodbye. He leaves for Army tonite at 11:00. …
In previous days, he said goodbye at Leo’s. “Buss had a nice farewell letter for Leo.”
Also, of note, prior day: “Toots & Mary came to say goodbye to Buzz. They just got hame from big trip out west, south & North to Canada.”
[Note: Mom used Buzz there, instead of Buss.]
Buzz went through Military Intelligence training for several months, then served in Osaka, Japan. He was in the Army for eighteen months as part of occupation forces.
Families are Forever! ;-)
