My graduation gift was a trip West with my mother, Laura (she could still get passes on the railroad for me since I wasn't 18 yet). We stopped enroute to visit Tom Larson and his family in Butte, Mont., then to Spokane, Wash where Elizabeth and John Winter lived. John drove us to Longview, Wash to visit Johanna and Leo Gallagher. Later, Johanna, my mother and I went by train to Seattle and over to Bainbridge Island to view changes to the shipyard where they both had worked during the War.
