Under One Flag

Post  Ryea on Wed Feb 29, 2012 12:21 pm


On December 7, 1941 the radio brought many families the news that the Japanese had bombed Pearl Harbor. Those who hadn't been listening to the radio that day found out about it soon enough. Suddenly America was involved in the war and it wasn't so far away, like it had been before.

Thousands of American men volunteered to fight, some became soldiers, some pilots, some sailors, there was lots of opportunities to fight, or just help directly. Women also joined the forces, as nurses, secretaries, never actually on the front lines.

Families found themsleves saying goodbye to at least one loved one. For some it was the father, others brother, others husband, boyfriend, or fiancee. The pride these families felt was truly heartfelt and blue stars were hung in the windows, one for every family member who was overseas fighting. If someone was killed in the war, their blue star was replaced with a gold one.

The homefront soon became a battlefield of sots, with everyone at home doing all they could to help with the war effort and support the troops. Victory gardens, knitting bees, scrap metal drive, and many other things were done to support the troops and the war effort.

The year 1944 finds the town of Lake, New York trying to do all they can to help with the war effort.
