My Grandma’s Story

My Grandma’s Story

We all have a history and they are many people in our lives that play a part in it. My family plays a big part in mine. That’s why I’m excited to share my guest with you today. It’s my Grandmother. I sat down with my Grandma to talk about some of her family history. We chat about what it was like to grow up in the depression in a small town, her first job, bank accounts, and the day she found out about Pearl Harbor. We also discuss her meeting my Grandfather who was a ball turret gunner during World War II.

Thank You!
