Big Daddy.......Little Daddy

My dad Arthur Elsworth Hugonin married my mother Margie Mitchell on December 20, 1941.  On August 25, 1942 my dad enlisted in the Army.  His enlistment period was for the duration of the War or other emergency, plus six (6) months, subject to the discretion of the President or otherwise according to the law.  I was born on December 31, 1942.  My mother and I lived with her parents, John Hollis Mitchell and Zeda Chamness Mitchell, in Tomball Texas. 

The only daddy that I new was my grand daddy Mitchell.  So when I began to talk I called him "Big Daddy".  My daddy returned to the states from the War on October 4, 1945.  When I meet him for the first time I called him "Little Daddy".
