Bring it on!

It's 1943. The country is at war. They stopped making civilian automobiles in 1942. Food rationing. Gas rationing. War bonds. Scrap metal drives. Victory gardens. And nine-year-old me (I didn't turn ten until November.)

So, the food rationing had already started in 1942, then. And you were only nine years old, back then. :)
When I still didn't know much about you ( you know, around the time when I just started reading Dick Hardesty series ), when you said you were in the war, serving the country, at first I thought you fought in the Second World War - only until I saw some pictures of you. ^_^;

Thank you for sharing a nice picture of you taken when you were still a little boy ! :D
