Remember V-J Day? How would you celebrate it? My grandfather, Robert, celebrated it in town. He played the snare drum in a band. Everyone was happy and excited. The band marched down the street, with smiles, playing lively tunes.
He also did his part on the home front. He and his family saved scraps, grew a victory garden, and bought war bonds. Whatever the army asked citizens to do, he and his family did it. This ˘country boy÷ did his part.
