About this product
- DescriptionIn August, 1946, I found myself on a luxury liner bound for Yokohama in the Occupation forces following the sereneder of Japan in World War II. This is an account of that voyage and the two years I spent there with my husband and two small daughters. In flashback memories of childhood in the early 20's and 30's on a wheat farm on the windswept plains of eastern New Mexico are recalled. The impact and devastation of the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression are touched upon. The return voyage was much different than the ten day we spent on the way over. My husband wrestled with the decision of whether to stay in the Army or give up his commission and go back to school. I was three months pregnant with our third daughter, Nancy. It was a memorable trip. Returning to the United States to a world that had changed during our stay in Japan was a shock. We then returned to civilian like as students at a southwester university on the G.I Bill. Only youth and determination saw us through.
