  1. I hope you all realize that Maynards relatives were in their Bathing Suits !!!! Imagine trying to swim in stockings, etc.

  2. We see lots of movies about the war, but it was the quiet un sung heros at home that contributed much to the war effort.
    In England, the future Queen Elizabeth drove an ambulance.
    Thanks Bill & Carol for your photo.
    in Australia,

  3. Hi Bill and Carol,

    Do you know if your Mom worked at the Basalt Rock Company? I am also doing research in Napa on my husband’s family and his grandfather worked their during the same years. Small world!
