When you remember telephones that you had to pick the receiver up and ask the operator to

I remember protests over the Vietnam "Conflict."I saw lots of classmates go to War in Nam.My ex-Husband was stationed at San Diego,the Sailors were proud to go serve.It was hard to see Our loved ones go to War.People called Me a War Widow.I was a Young bride and could not stand the name calling,I came back to Illinois.While My Husband was Fighting to keep Americans safe,I worked in a submarine factory.Both of Us tried to do Our part for America,and would do it all over again.God Bless America.
