Frank will introduce the California gal, Margaret (Margie) to his parents in a 3/13/1944 letter. He'll say he likes her "very very very much." Frank still cares about his at-home girlfriend, Cookie, but we have to remember, he had lived a very insular life on Chicago’s West Side and was only 18 when he left for basic training. He’s being introduced to the world, as millions of boys were during WWII, and a good-looking, charming, sweet guy is discovering many girls out there thinks he’s just swell! This Margie is one to them.
