The family spend summers in Michigan, were Ernest became a great lover of the outdoors. Biographers describe him rather like Huck Finn, roaming the Michigan woods barefoot and wearing a straw hat. This love of the nature remained with him all his life. When Ernest graduated High School, his uncle helped him land a job as a reporter on the Kansas City Star. He never attended college. Ernest only stayed at the Star for about six months. Unable to enlist in the armed forces, due to an eyesight problem, Ernest volunteered to drive ambulances for the American Red Cross in Italy.
During his time in Italy, Hemingway was seriously wounded in the legs and feet by shrapnel. He was eventually taken to the Red Cross Hospital in Milan, where he spends part of the summer and fall of 1918. While cooped up in the hospital Ernest fell in love with a nurse, but their love affair came to an abrupt end, when she jilted him, for an Italian officer. Later, he used some of these experiences in his novel A Farewell to Arms. Despite his broken love affair with the beautiful nurse, Ernest married his first of four wives, Hadley Richardson in 1921. Soon the couple moved to Paris, where Ernest was part of the literary group later called The Lost Generation.
