"This is the story of a young man growing up in Oklahoma under the loving guidance of his mama. It begins with his earliest memory when he was ill with diphtheria; childhood experiences; the death of his father; first jobs; teen age struggles; life after graduation in Washington D.C. and his return home to enlist in the U. S. Army Air Corps at the outbreak of WW II. It is personal life history revealing humor, sorrow, character, and charm. One reviewer wrote: "It was like looking over the author's shoulder and watching him grow up.""Papin, Warren Jean is the author of 'Growing Up', published 2007 under ISBN 9781425776336 and ISBN 1425776337.
