Gerry meets Ben's brothers JJ and Carl when they come home from Marine studies, before they leave again.
The next day Gerry is dancing when the three boys and Barb, along with Steve, Kathy, Sue, Mercy, and Juanita come in to watch. On returning to the patio JJ and Carl get calls to return on early flight to their camps.
School started with USF accepting Gerry's A&M credits. After a semester of study at USF Gerry graduates and is then offered a job by Steve at the S&S Research and Development department.
