We had nothing to fear
John Boiardi b. 1936
I remember having to totally block out window panes. You could not have any light shining through. The town was in a blackout situation – no street lights etc.
We lived near Cushing Army hospital where they kept German prisoners of war. I remember some of them “escaping” and walking through the neighborhood on Waverly Street. They were harmless and probably happy to be prisoners.
