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.
