The picture of above was taken in 1945 right after World War Two. The little girl is Grams sitting between her parents trying to be good! My sister Margaret was a Wave.My brother Don was in the Navy and brother Ray was in the army!!
My Mom had a little flag in our front room window with three little stars for each of her kids who served during the war! I can remember rationing cards and how hard it was to buy gasoline, sugar, and evaporated milk for my niece. Nylon stockings were impossible to find!! I remember being in Boone IA when I was little and it was on trading day. My folks were farmers. My Mom took eggs into town and traded the eggs for money! My sister-in-law Dorothy heard the good news: Nylons at JC Penny's !! She grabed my hand and away we went running so fast across the street to stand in line and she did get a new pair of Nylons!!
All of the people in the picture have gone on now and they are missed!! Thank you for serving our Country with such pride and honor!! Thanks to all our troops who are still serving our Country!!
