1942: CAROLE LOMBARD DIES IN A PLANE CRASH
I would estimate that 1 or 2 percent of the visitors to this blog are in the over 70 generation. That generation, of which I am proud to lay claim, remembers the world-wide and tragic news of the death of Ms. Lombard who died while on a Defense Bond Drive for the war effort. I remember the sentiment and love the average American had for Ms. Lombard and her husband Clark Gable. With the aforementioned observation that there are very few WWII veterans who visit this site, I would ask that all you "youngsters" who are on the web, print this out and hand it to grandma or grandpa.
