30). My Mom and Dad Near Dickinson, North Dakota (1943)
My dad joined the Navy in World War II and met my mom during his officer training in Dickinson, North Dakota in 1943. A few
months after they met, and shortly before they got married, they went ice skating near Dickinson. Two years later as a Navy Seal,
my dad was sent to fight in China. On my drive back to Bellingham in 2001, I stopped in Dickinson and found the place where my mom
and dad had met at a U.S.O. dance in 1943.
