Verner Getty is a master sergeant in the U.S. Army Quartermaster Corps, assigned to the Oregon Coast at the start of World War II. He joined the U.S. Army on his eighteenth birthday in 1918, but never made it to France. He survived the post-war drawdown and made a career of military service. At the start of World War II, he had nearly twenty-four years of service.
Getty is tall with a narrow face, with sage eyes and brown hair. There’s a peppering of premature grey at his temples.
