History Bits – Snap Shots

We are in a fight today. We were in a fight yesterday.

My mother was one of the Rosie the Riveter Girls. She built Bell P-39-Airacobras. We were fighting our way out of the Great Depression and into World War 2. My brother, Tom, was in the Army Air Corps as a flight engineer. He could not tell my parents where he was located. But my mother figured out where he was through reading books. She actually placed him within three miles of where he was stationed in Burma. He hardly talked about it when he got home but this is where he was.
