Roland Thomas, born September 25, 1922 in Chicopee Falls, Massachusetts entered the post office with full intentions of enlisting in the United States Army. He had graduated Technical High School and Cathedral High School and was now preparing to serve his country.
As he entered the post office, he had to pass by the U. S. Navy recruiter to go around the corner to the Army recruiter. He was walking by when the Navy recruiter asked him where he was going. "Going to go join the Army" Thomas said. "Well, he called me over, and I enlisted in the Navy!" He added. The year was 1940.
