POWs in the Neighborhood

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.
