Thelma and Betty, 1951
I got stationed at Camp Stoneman in 1951. There was a good buddy I used to run with. Somehow or another, he got a date with Betty and her friend, Thelma. I went out with Thelma and he went out with Betty.
Thelma was older than I was. I didn’t like her countenance, at all.
By chance, I met Betty downtown one day. We just struck it off. We went to a restaurant and had something to eat. We started dating after that time. We pretty much enjoyed each other’s company.
We talked about getting married but hadn’t made any plans.
