I said that three Johnston brothers returned safely from WWII, but actually only two brothers, Howard and Bob, went to war. The third sibling was Faye’s sister, Lorraine Johnston Hamilton. Lorraine was an Army nurse and a lieutenant, while Howard and Bob were sergeants. Because she was an officer, Lorraine was not allowed to fraternize with her brothers while they were stationed in...
