This chapter follows Still for the six months he remained in the Army after returning to the United States. He reconnected with friends and family then was transferred from place to place doing a variety of office work while learning to work the military system. After being discharged on September 3, 1945, he returned to his house on Dead Mare Branch where he felt disoriented and lost for months. The chapter ends by exploring how his personal situation is partly reflected in two stories of the time, “Mrs. Razor” and “The Nest.”

Keywords:   military office work, discharge, Dead Mare Branch, “Mrs. Razor”, “The Nest”
