My sister Dorothy was the oldest in our family. After graduating from high school, she just stayed around home until WWII broke out. She lived to be 96 and never learned to drive.
She went to Wapato to live with our aunt and worked in some related war effort job there.
She met her husband, Wes, while there. They later married and, being in the army, he was reassigned to Jackson, Mississippi.
