Hagaman Library - Jim Hennessey
#1

Hey guys and gals!

 

Here's a real interesting story, and it features one of our own, Jim Hennessey.

 

This blog begins with:

 

Colinette Gordon Compton shared childhood memories of growing up during World War II in her native town of Stone, England. An American Field Hospital was set up in the town of Stone, near Coventry, and for two years American servicemen lived in the town. She has happy memories of sharing the family home, and daily life, with six American Doctors, and their six aides.

 

She brought a large basket of chocolate candy to the meeting and said she was "giving back" for all the chocolate she received as a girl from American soldiers.
