They grew up in Oilton. My fil didn't graduate from HS till he was 19 because he'd spent so much time missing school in the falls picking cotton. My fil graduated and took a train to San Diego where he worked at an aircraft factory till his younger brother graduated HS. They joined the Coast Guard because they allowed brothers to serve on the same ship. Ironically it wasn't till last spring that we heard many of the war time stories from my fil's brothers son. Five of the six brothers served in WW2 all making it out. The youngest brother wasn't old enough to make it in and caught grief the rest of their lives. My fil is the only one still alive at 93.
