Many, many things were different in WWII, and when one is as old as Nathlyn D, it is easier to remember. Nat, as her friends and family call her, is 92 years old and was 32 when the war started. Mrs. D. can clearly remember rationed items such as flour, gasoline, and meat, and seeing war posters everywhere. She has a very extraordinary connection to D-Day, too. ItĂs her anniversary! Nat had two brothers in the war, and they both came back. Mrs. D. was Jewish, lucky for her, so she never had to eat Spam because it was not kosher. However, brown meat got old after a while. Her message to all of her readers, ˘We live in the land of the free and the home of the brave"
