During World War II the home front
played an important role of
support for the fighting men and
women in addition to protecting
themselves and making sacrifices
of the things that were taken for
Rosie the Riveter became a household
name in America as she was the show
case for thousands of women who
left high paying jobs to build
equipment for the fighting men
of our country.
Other civilian activities performed
by those men and women who
manned the home front are remembered.
Blackouts, rationing, bond drives,
U.S.O. Clubs, and the civil defense
waiting for the dreaded telegrams
or visits from authorities announcing
the wounded or killed in action
of daughters, sons, brothers, fathers
and friends. The country was united
as never before or after, truly the
Greatest Generation.
