I was a child when we entered the Second World War. I remember holding my mother’s hand as we walked to get green “ration stamps.”

My dad was a talented printer when I was growing up. When I read Le’s WWII stories in  Ninepatch, I remember that time after the US joined the war.

Dad’s printing business  wasn’t  doing so well during the war  so my father and his twin brother went to work for the Goodyear company that made all kinds of rubber things for the war.

He returned to printing  once the war was over and the economy improved here.


Nancyann (May ‘14) adds, “At  my dad’s printery, I learned all about paper: its weight, texture and composition. I always think of that when I  turn the pages of a book.”
