1944 · The G.I Bill

Age 1

The G.I. Bill was a law that provided a range of benefits for returning World War II veterans that were on active duty during the war and weren't dishonorably discharged. The goal was to provide rewards for all World War II veterans. The act avoided life insurance policy payouts because of political distress caused after the end of World War I. But the Benefits that were included were: Dedicated payments of tuition and living expenses to attend high school, college or vocational/technical school, low-cost mortgages, low-interest loans to start a business, as well as one year of unemployment compensation. By the mid-1950s, around 7.8 million veterans used the G.I. Bill education benefits.

Age 18

The Buccaneer Arena was built for the Des Moines Buccaneers ice hockey team before their first season. It was known as the Metro Ice Sports Arena until 2004 when it got its new name. Its presence has sparked the love of ice hockey in the area during its time in the community.

Age 19

Name Meaning

Some absurdly translate this name 'home- free, home-peace, or peace at home.' It is without doubt the same with Cundfrid, which Wachter renders 'defensor notus,' i.e. illustrious protector. Kun-frid would translate 'strong protector.' The nicknames are Humps, Nump, and Numps.
