One thing that was amazing about World War II was that everybody signed up for the duration plus six months. Fliers got to leave combat after 25 missions, or 35 missions, but other than that, you were in it. You were part of the great effort, until, oh boy, six months after it was over.
My father is a real idealist, and he's all about learning.

So anything to do with education or learning, my father would spare no expense.
