Ft. Lewis, Washington June 1944
My father was a SGT. in the US Army and stationed out in Washington state, far far from his home in the coal mining regions of Pennsylvania. He really spoke of Washington with fondness and wanted to move out there after the war. I don't recall the conversations but my mother wanted nothing to do with that idea as far as I know, and neither of them ever went out there for even a visit. It's funny now that so so many years later I have a son living in Seattle, and dh has family in Washington state also. Life comes full circle.
