Winfield, early 1943

My father, far right, with the others of the Kappa Rho (pep club) quartet at Southwestern College, Winfield, Kans., in early 1943.  All four joined the military in World War II.  As my father completed his sophomore year in the spring of 1943, he heard about military life in letters from at least two of his fellow quartet members, who had already begun training: Bill Stanley, far left, and Everett Samuelson, third from left.  My father, himself, entered the Navy in July 1943.
