Interview with Frederica McDuffie
QUESTION 5
MADISON DAVIS LACY:

All right, now when did you two decide that maybe you'd get married? Tell me, describe how that happened.

FREDERICA MCDUFFIE:

Well, we decided to get married once we both finished high school, but at the meantime Arthur finished high school two years before I did. I finished, like, um, class of 1967. Arthur served three years in the service, Marines, so during the time that he was in the Marines, we kept communications through letters, and we prepared ourselves, you know, while he was in the service that we would get married once you, um, return home and out of the service. And he was discharged from the service in October 5th of 1968, and we married November the 2nd, 1968.
