WWAs the World War II era fades into obcurity, I am so very grateful for the memories I have of that era as it relates to the "Home Front." We had rationing, scrap drives, blackouts, air raid wardens, airplanes flying over the Delaware Valley and especially over my very rural Hartley Avenue Home. Above is an article recalling just a few of the many memories which still remain in my 76 year old memory. For nearly 30 years, I have written many articles from that era.
It is for Ralph Lucarella and others from the "Greatest Generation" that these stories were written. The very sad fact is that there are pitifully few over 80 years of age who have adopted the computer as an incredible vehicle to amplify history. On the other hand, there will undoubtedly be current and future history-minded visitors to this blog who will find the stories of WWII and their heroes very stimulating and interesting. Let me know if you are among that select minority.
