It was also a testing ground for improving these new weapons and perfecting their use by men who would be fighting another and even bigger war in twenty years.

But I think my favorite part of living in a small town is the way people recognize each other wherever they go.

They were well made from sturdy cotton, to be sure, but they had flowers on them. Pink ones.
