22. Returning G.I.s
Edited on Tue Feb-17-09 09:17 AM by rolltideroll
I agre. my great grandfather was a sharecropper. That is the next thing to slavery. The G.I. Bill pulled my ancestors from the bottom rung of society to college graduates. I may be looking at past in too favourable a light, but it really seems we had a period when the concern was almost solely on those who needed help the most.
