He later quit his job in Baltimore and enlisted in the army in the infantry, where he was stationed in Germany and when the war ended he stayed to work as a military police for a year or so. After the war, Kenneth and Harry went looking for some farm land they could buy. They found two adjoining farms in Dupree, SD.
