  1. My dad served with the 284th FAB in WWII, so I enjoyed your blog. Thanks for visiting my blog.

  2. Thanks for all your likes on my blog Another great guest blog coming up this weekend

  3. Thanks for the visit and like on Save Bristol Bay!

  4. What fabulous pictures. I love it.

  5. I love the 40s! Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong era. This selection of art from the time is marvelous. Even the clothes back then were great! Thanks for sharing this.

  6. Thank you for visiting my blog! Stories here are so interesting! Will follow!

  7. Wonderful post! I love all the old pictures. I found this because you liked my Memorial Day 2013 post. Have a great Memorial Day!

  8. Thank you for visiting my blog. I love the old photos,history lives on in pictures. For the past three years I immersed myself in studying the period of the thirties and forties, a very unique time in world history.

  9. I’m new to your blog, drawn because you like mine, “In search of unusual destinations”. Just to say: this blog, for a UK citizen who was born following WW2, is itself a most unusual destination – but one I shall return to. You have amassed some remarkable material. All good wishes for the future. Phil.

    • I thank you for your comments and for reading. Like you, I know only what I was taught in school about the war in Europe, until I began reading other blogs and looking into some of the events. Ditto on the good wishes.

  10. Ronald Reagan advertising for Chesterfields… I magnified the Greyhound ad; the message indicated it had to be in ’45. A glimpse into a far different reality. Thanks.
