1945: Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec 1946 Today
Stan Jennings, who Dot met in 1944, was one of her first, serious boyfriends. Stan was serving as a Merchant Marine, Seaman 2nd Class, in 1945, on the USS Cleveland. He came from Waterloo, Iowa.

Sis recalled Stan: “I remember [Stan] telling us about the Sullivan brothers, who also lived in Waterloo, and were his neighbors. The brothers, all five, were on the same ship when it sanked. A movie was made about their lives and I believe a ship was named in their honor. As you may already know, after this event, they did not put brothers together on any ship.”
