Why Frosty?

RE: Why Frosty?
"Conrad enlists in the army in July 1942. He works in the Signal corps (military communications) in the American Airforce, and is stationed in Iceland. He returns to the US on Aug 31 in 1945." --David Moen 7/2017 dalneitzel. c o m

"In the summer of 1942, when I was twelve, I found myself selling newspapers, the Montana Standard and the Billings Gazette, on the streets of West Yellowstone. That was many years before any streets were paved, and the deep potholes on Canyon were often filled with water and fair game for every car that sped by. I think they competed to see which could splash water the furthest.

Anyway, the good news was that I made a penny for each paper I sold, although the bag my eighty pound body had to carry was so heavy I struggled with every step. One morning my boss drove by and saw me sitting on the curb in front of Scaggs Grocery Store. He rolled his window down and yelled, “You're canned.” That's all!

Of course I didn't know what that meant but guessed it must be something good because I was so proud of my job. When my mother told me I had been fired I was devastated. No matter. I soon got the dream job of being the only dishwasher at the Totem Café."--Forrest Fenn 2/2008 WestYellowstoneNews. c o m

"Conrad and Ramona ran the Totem Café in West Yellowstone, at least from 1949-1967. During his time in West Yellowstone, Conrad was known under the nickname “Frosty”." --David Moen 7/2017 dalneitzel. c o m

"When my Yellowstone summers were over I was a nineteen-year-old lank without discipline, focus or cause." -- Forrest Fenn 2010 The Thrill of the Chase

Forrest has an impeccable memory to this day. So, to believe that he worked for "Frosty" implies that Forrest is mistaken about when he worked there. The only possible summer that the two stories align is the summer of 1949 when Forrest would have been 18. Frosty would not have managed the Totem in June 1942 and then gone to Iceland for three years and then come back mess around for three or four years and then manage the Totem again. I mean, c'mon, Beavertooth, you easily debunked my connection with Pandora's Box as not a religious nod, give me something here. Are we researching stuff or not? What does the word several mean?!

Definition of several (Entry 1 of 2)
1a : separate or distinct from one another
federal union of the several states
b(1) : individually owned or controlled : EXCLUSIVE
a several fishery
— compare COMMON
(2) : of or relating separately to each individual involved
a several judgment
c : being separate and distinctive : RESPECTIVE
specialists in their several fields

On Meriam-Webster you have to look at entry two for the definition that Forrest highlighted.
