Dale went to the same schools that the others had attended, Eden Elementary, Huntsville Junior High and Weber High School. In Junior high Dale played Father’s violin( I do not know what happened to it).
Dale’s school was uneventful and shortly after his graduation he was drafted in the Army. He was trained in Mississippi, then sent to England where they were trained for the Invasion of Europe. He landed in France D+3 and when they got in the hedgerow country in France he was hit by a sniper and broke his leg. He was returned home and discharged.
I got the impression from him that he felt the world owed him a living and he was going to collect it. He really never did have a serious job. (This letter gives some insight into Dale’s feelings)
Dale married two older women.
Dale was still married when he let cancer go without treating it and it took his life.
