You're right, Mr. Brown. The stories WOULD make one heck of a book. And you're also right about each of you having your own experiences and stories to relate. If you all don't mind, please keep sharing them. I don't want to impose or take up too much of your time, but I am....I don't know if this is the right word, I'm fascinated by hearing about the experiences that you all had.
When I hear my mother talk about blackouts and ration coupons, riding on trains full of soldiers, sailors, etc., it almost seems unreal. Kids (and some grownups, too!) have no idea about what the greatest generation had to contend with and the sacrifices that all of you made. Relating your stories makes it so real.
