  1. Gentledove,



  2. So we would remember all the men and women who fought and died in the different wars, we built a gazebo in my little town. Around the gazebo were bricks people bought. On these were engraved the family names.

    Also have a memorial with all the names who served.

    Now everytime I see a young man or woman in uniform, with crutches or in a wheel chair, It is a sad reminder of all the wa

  3. I don't remember a lot oabout the details but my brother Bud was in the Marines in Califiornia. He died about 3 years ago.

    My husband Ken was in the airforce and sent to Korea. When he got back we were married. Had our first child, a girl, at Otis Air Force Base. Mass.

    Going with my church soon to sing at a nursing home.

    God bless you and your wife.

  5. Hi ColBill,

    TY for the comment.

    Where were you when you heard about Pearl Harbor. I was cutting out paper dolls that I got for my BD.

    I remember the war bonds and stamps.

    Besides trotting down the hill to see what I could buy for my family, I also shopped for an old lady

  6. GentleDove,It is good to have you on our forum . I hope you will enjoy your time with us .We are about the same age and should have similar memories about WWII.


  7. Hi! Will be 78 on the 15th. Had an early BD party ON the 6th!. My last childhood birthday. Single now. Mother of 6 wonderful kids. They gave me 16 grandchildren. THen 12 greats with 3 more on the way. They keep me busy. I thought I had a terrible life because my Dad told me I was stupid and couldn't do anything right. I believed him. An old classmate (by e mail) helped me see my life differently. I had a good life but chose to be negative. God let me see that he was a miserable unhappy person. I can see him in a different light. He was In Germany during WW 1. He got shrapnel in his hand and got a purple heart for that. He was gassed while over there. With the help of smoking too much, he died of throat cancer. MY husband went to see him in the hospitall before he died. He told my hubby that he wished he would have treated me better. I was the best of the bunch! I was able to forgive him before he died. The only time he was proud of me was when I won the American Legion Medal in 8th Grade! Since I am retired I began to write testimonies of how how God took care of me the years I was alone in strange and dangerous places since my husband (He was in the Korean War) divorced me to marry someone else.He really did me a favor for it made me really grow up! I was able to forgive him just before they pulled his life support. MY items are on several different sites. I have met a lot of nice people all over the world even from Pakistan. He became a Christian preacher! I have had so many experiences mostly by cyber space. It is very rewarding. Just call me Gabby. God bless all of you. I hope to get to know you better.
  8. Nice to see you here! A warm welcome. Looking forward to hearing more about Pearl Harbor and your impressions as a young gal.
