Any member of "the Greatest Generation" who accesses this blog will surely relate to the above comic strip page from the "Stars and Stripes" which was the daily paper issued for the armed forces all over the world. This page is from a Stars and Stripes from the ETO (European Theater of Operations.) Ten years later, I would be seated at a table in our local PX in Bavaria and ultimately Northern Italy, reading the same comic strips, and doing the very popular crossword puzzle. However, I think we had Milton Caniff's "Steve Canyon" instead of "Terry and the Pirates." Thanks to my dear friend, Maury Perilli for a copy ot the June 13, 1945 issue of the Stars and Stripes.
