My Grandmother did some really cool things during the war. Barbara was twenty one when World War II started. Her boyfriend enlisted at the age of twenty two. Although she expected this, she feared for her boyfriendĘs life. This fear helped Barbara become a firm believer in why we were at war. To help the war effort my grandma got a job at the Red Cross. She helped make and ship supplies over seas to her boyfriendĘs compatriots. One day after coming home from work Barbara got a letter from her boyfriend asking her to marry him. She sent a letter back agreeing to his proposal. All her friends badgered her about the date of the wedding. Barbara had no idea and she could only count the days till her boyfriend returned.
