Description: My nickname was Buddy. I should mention this. When I was born, Dad wanted to name me after my grandpa, Joseph Baldwin, and Dad said, "Hell, he's too little to put that on him." But Joseph Baldwin's front initials is J. B., so that's how I got my name, J. B., because I wasn't big enough for Joseph Baldwin. But at any rate, when I was in the service, I had a hell of a time there, gettin' by. They wanted me to be John or Jim, keep the "B." But no, I wouldn't do it. They finally put "I.O." on my dog tags, "initials only."
