May 29: After The War. Write about life after war. What did your ancestor come home to when his or her service ended? Marriage? A job? Family? College? Did he or she enlist to serve again? #militarymemories
Spend some time talking to family members about life after the war. There was a baby boom as soldiers returned home, married, and started families that had been put off for many years. Not only were there more babies born but the economy was good, soldiers were offered the opportunity to attend college on the G.I. Bill, and life in general began changing rapidly as technology made life better for everyone.
