John has to prove he graduated from high school in order to continue getting contracts and security for government contracts. Mary Ellen becomes the nurse for the mountain folk when Nora is called into the service.
Did You Know?
[narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal
The intermingling of what had gone before and what lay ahead was a never ending process that touched our lives on the mountain. My father was not a man to live in the past; he honored it, but it was his way to live the time at hand. One early morning in 1943 the present was awaiting my sister, Mary Ellen, and the past was ready to catch up with our father.
There's a Long, Long Trail
