Biography: 

Pete Grier, the oldest of the two Grier sons, enlists in the Army after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Before that he was a farmer in Frenchman's Bend. The "ten acres" of land he farms was given to him by his father "when he graduated from the Consolidated" (82). According to his younger brother, who idolizes him, Pete was a very hard worker: "He never got behind like Pap, let alone stayed behind" (82). Pete's death in combat is reported in "Shall Not Perish."
