Mom's guardian moved her family to Dad's hometown in '39 or so. Couple of years later, the teenager took an after school job as a librarian's assistant and Dad started hanging around the library.

Dad enlisted in the Navy in early '42 and asked Mom to wait for him, which she did. They got married while Dad was studying for his chemical engineering degree on the GI Bill; their wedding photo isn't actually from their wedding but rather at a professional's studio a few days later.
