JDM’s first story was published without his knowledge.  Due to  heavy censorship of letters home during WWII  he tired of  writing the usual stuff,  and  sent the above story to Dorothy, his wife .  She submitted it to Story Magazine, and it was accepted. When JDM disembarked from his India-Burma  tour of duty in late 1945, where he was in the OSS as a quartermaster, he was met by Dorothy, son Maynard, and a check for $25.00.
