Goofs

John Sr. joined the service in WWI after finishing high school (mentioned in other episodes especially season 8 "The Diploma"). If this is his 25th high school reunion it would make the year of the episode between 1940 and 1942 if he graduated in 1916-1918 before WWI ended but after US troops started going overseas.
