World War II Information
At the November DAR meeting, The National Defense Report was given by National Defense Chairman, Trudy Tranzillo. Trudy reported that 183,000 children lost a parent in WWII. The AWON, an organization that supports families of men who sacrificed their lives in the service of our country during WWII, worked with Pepsi Cola to record messages of soldiers that were sent to their families. A 45 rpm was recently unpacked and given to Roberta Brigitt Caito of the Caroline Scott Harrison Chapter of DAR. She heard her father’s voice for the first time since he was killed in WWII four months before her birth.
