Our Flag & Veteran’s Day Continued - Dave’s Midwestern Ohio Memories

A Series of Guest Blogs by an out-of-state Fish Report reader originally from this area about fond memories of growing up in Midwestern Ohio during the 50’s & 60’s.

Our Flag & Veteran’s Day Continued

After Last week's blog on Veteran’s Day honoring those who served in WWII, a relative emailed me the following photo taken just at the end of the war in 1945 of my mother and her three sisters. Recall from last week’s blog that their younger brothers had all served in the war, consequently during that time, my mother and her sisters helped their dad with all the farm work. Once the war was over, they could get back to enjoying life again, as is so obvious in the photo. They were representative of so many who contributed on the home front to support the war effort. As a further tribute, here’s a video of 2,097 Rosie the Riveters who set a Guinness world record recently, as well as this article about several Rosie the Riveters taking a plane ride in one of the bombers they had built some 70 years earlier. The sacrifices made by this generation for our freedom and way of life are so exemplary that their efforts should never be forgotten.
