I was in Murmansk Russia on Christmas day of 1945. We had strict orders not to give any food even garbage to the Civilian women who were running the town because all the men were fighting in Stalingrad. I and a friend of mine were walking through the town and met a woman with 2 little children. My friend had a fresh apple with him and I had an orange. We gave these to that woman for the children. She started to cry and gave us each a hug. They hadn't seen fruit in years, and only got one meal a day at a soup kitchen. How thankful I was that night thinking of the gift that made this ladies day. Gerry Burr
