In 1951, the family moved to the Klind Ranch, south of Hinsdale, ultimately doing the farming of all Waino’s cropland – until he injured his back while carrying a sack of grain pellets to feed cattle during the winter of 1959.
From February – June he spent either in the VA Hospital in Miles City or at home in bed.
The Park Grove Bar echoed with his huge laugh during the time he and Mom operated it.
His friends Lud Grose, Mickey Trotter, and others kept everyone on their toes with their practical jokes and stories of the day.
From 1943 to 1945 he served in the “Unknown War” in the Aleutian Islands.
He returned in March of 1945 from overseas and ended the war driving for the Russian delegation as a chauffeur in the UN Conference in San Francisco.
On July 25, 1942, he married Erma Bjontegarrd at the United Methodist Church in Glasgow, Montana.
WWII dawned and he was called to service in the US Army Air Corps.
