Fort Douglas

Hello Dear Reader,
The draft board called Wes into the Service so he, Ray, and Jim broke up their building partnership. Mary was pregnant again (with me) so this became a stressful time for the Carters. Wes left his little family and went to Fort Douglas in Salt Lake to be inducted into the US Army.

During his first physical examination the doctor discovered he had a slight heart condition. Those in charge put him in bed and kept him there while they examined him two or three times each day for two or three days. Meanwhile, Mary heard nothing from him and wondered what on earth was happening.
