BK: Well, you're on the troop ship now and you come down. Where did they bring you?

JT: They brought us into Seattle, and I don't remember where we docked even. It might have been out on Pier 90, or whatever that naval port is out there. I'm not sure where we docked. But they had buses which transported us then to Puyallup, Assembly Center in Puyallup, yes, and that's where we were, that was our home for a while. And they had different areas in Puyallup and we were in Area A. And until that time, my brother didn't know anything much about us. And he didn't know where to look for us, or... but I'm sure he was able to find... he was in Area D, I believe it was, where the stadium is and the grandstand was. He was there so I'm sure he must have gone into the office and found out where we were located and told them that we had come down. And it was, and so it was in that respect... he lived over there all the time and we were in Area A, and he stayed in Area D, and so, but we did get to see him and everything.
