Nostalgia time. Here’s a shot of some Navy guys at the Pearl Harbor air base circa 1945. The war is either over or nearly over, and the mood at Pearl is much lighter than 4 years before. One of these sailors is my dad. I’m not going to say who he is, except that he’s not the guy making the funny face. Thank goodness!

  1. Jim, A lovely picture of your father–whichever one he is. I remember the beginning of WWII which was very solemn; all us kids in Catholic school were ushered into church in mid-day to pray because we were at war.

    I also remember the end of WWII. I was then what is called today a ‘tween. (I think I’ve got that right.) I heard a lot of noise outside and wondered what it was all about. I asked my Mom what was going on. She said the people were celebrating because the war had ended. She and I looked out the window and sure enough, people on the block I lived on all had pots and pans, spoons (metal or wooden, didn’t matter) and were banging them all together like a bunch of small children playing in their mother’s kitchen. And what kind of celebration could be better? MCS
