Families waited and watched news reports for information about their servicemen sons and daughters. The waiting was difficult. Patience ran thin, fearing the next knock on the door was delivery of the dreaded telegram from the war department.  Many parents had more than one son in combat, somewhere in the war zone. Often specific detail as to the exact whereabouts of their loved one was unknown. Every piece of mail received from the serviceman or woman was welcomed with much anticipation. Younger brothers followed the path older brothers took by answering the call to enlist. Parents stood strong as they said goodbyes, praying that it would not be the final time.
