an email was received by the 39th Bomb Group Web Site and
was forwarded to Vic and others regarding McCabe WW II History
Project .. seeking "real life" stories of W.W. II. from
those who lived during that time, soldiers, sailors, housewives,
defense plant works, and other Americans who banned together
in the world wide struggle for democracy...
Vic's thoughts ...
I am going to take
part in the McCabe Project. I urge all vets to participate.
You don't have to be a polished writer to respond. Every
man's experiences is valuable and should be included for
future generations to read. The most valuable information
we have from past wars come from individuals that wrote
letters home or kept diaries. Vic D
Here's the email
regarding the McCabe WW II History Project ...
To all members of
the 39th Bomb Group:
I would be honored
if anyone in your group would take part in the McCabe WWII
History Project. The Project is about Americans who were
raised during the Depression, then experienced the WWII
The result of our
work–currently in the research stage–will be a popular history
book which features the “real life” experiences of soldiers,
sailors, pilots, housewives, defense plant workers, and
other Americans who banded together in the worldwide struggle
The McCabe WWII
History Project was initiated in September, 2000, and we
have already received many interesting stories from people
all across the country. Our research will continue for several
months, and we would welcome and appreciate your participation.
It won’t take too much of your time, or cost you anything,
and each respondent whose name appears in the book will
receive a complimentary copy upon publication. If you’d
like to tell us your story, simply answer our questions
by regular mail or email at your leisure.
If you'd like to
participate, please let me know, and I will send the first
question. Thereare many good things that younger Americans
can learn by listening to your voice.
