Can you imagine being only seven years old and having to deal with your father leaving you? Thats what happened to my grandfather Jim. It was hard for him to realize why his father had to leave, and he really never knew whether he would come back or not. Jim grew up in Osning, New York, dealing with air raid drills, rationing problems, and life without a father. He tryed to keep up with the war through the news reels in the movie theaters. As if it was just like yesterday, Jim remembers the happy and sad days back then vividly. Even if World War Two was a long time ago, it still means a lot to Jim and will always be a part of him, no matter what happens.
