So I finished my school as typist, clerk typist, and then I was finished, then I'm going to be assigned somewhere to go, assigned to army base. Then while I'm there, they put me to work while I'm there as a typist, and they put me with a bunch of WACs, women soldiers, I was the only man in there typing. It's all women typing, I'm typing with all these women. And my boss was my lieutenant, this lady, and she was very nice. She says, "Anytime you want a pass, let me know, you can go home anytime." So every weekend I'll go home.
