Deal of the Day
Uphill Both Ways
Arnold Brown entered enlisted in the Army in 1936 because he was tired of eating cornbread and molasses. J.R. Lemons' family moved more than 20 times when he was a child, usually about the time the rent was due. Forged in the hardships of the Great Depression, these and other young men went on to become the soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines of the U.S. Army in World War II.
Many World War II veterans experienced not only World War II but the Great Depression. These are some of their stories. Listen to an excerpt:
The Song of Illinois
Booze and War
Kill or Be Killed: Vern Schmidt
A World War II Christmas (and other holidays on the front)
Now That's Funny (Humor in Uniform)
A Marine on Tinian: Bob Hamant
