Upon completion of his first Pacific passage to Guam by way of Japan and China, he returned home to Montana. At the age of sixteen, he became one of the youngest men in the country to join the National Guard—in Helena, Montana. “There was a heavy recruitment campaign in progress,” he recalled later. “They were waiving all ages.”
