Dad 1941-1943

in front of the old shop (w/Stan Phillips) [was right next door to the new shop]

New Guinea — "We were supposed to shave every day in the army, but hey, an officer in another company had a beard, and I figured so could I."

sousaphone — "There were a lot of trumpet players, but I think only one or two bass horn players. I figured I had a better chance of not going to the front line if I could stay in the band."
