The Goreville FFA Chapter is collecting stories about the role women

played in World War II. We are looking for stories from the widows and

wives from WWII, women that either had a husband that served in WWII or

from women that served themselves. These stories can be from either the

individual themselves or stories that have been passed down from

generation to generation. We just ask that the stories be relatively

detailed. We are in search of 25 stories from the WWII era and how the

war affected the women, children, and families left here in the states. The

stories are going to be compiled and published in a book titled WWII:

Widows and Wives too. Please contact Jeff Robison at Goreville School

618-771-6852 if you have a story that we can use in the book.
