LABOR DAY, U.S.A. DURING WW II: SEPTEMBER, 1942 !
THE ABOVE COVER, from Collier's Magazine, September 12, 1942, reminded me of how important the contrbutions were of all those who worked right here in the U.S.A. during WWII to help bring about our Victory overseas.
With that in mind, I wanted to take time this Labor Day in 2014 to Salute & Remember those "Greatest Generation" Men & Women who served on the Homefront during the Second World War. I know first-hand as my Dad, William (Bill) Edwards, was one of them working at Wagner Electric Corporation here in St. Louis.
They are the ones who produced the tanks, the jeeps, the ships, the planes, the trucks, the trains, the rifles, the machine guns, the cannons. the bullets, the bayonets, the mortars, the bombs, the uniforms, the communication devices, the tools...and everything else needed to help win the War !
Maybe your Dad, your Brother, your Uncle, your Cousin, your Mom, your Sister, your Aunt, or, maybe a friend or other relative, served on the Production Lines doing their part to help those who were in the trenches & on the battlefields risking life & limb for us back here at home.
Their work in the factories, buildings, and, offices of our Country at that time were important in every way ! They gave their all here, so that our fighting men & women could win over there !
So, God Bless them, each & every one: all of those hard working men & women who contributed to the War effort here on the Homefront during WWII...some who are still with us, and those who have passed-away. They too helped give us the Freedom that was fought for & the great Nation that we live in today.
PLUS, I also Salute those that are working & doing the same thing, in that same way, today, for those valiant men & women who are in conflicts in various parts of the World today, Labor Day, September 1, 2014...Godspeed to you all, and thank you for your services both here at home & abroad. JK
