We’re in the Army now!

Friday March 24, 1944

1944_Saul_GgWe’re in the Army now! My father has to report to someplace called Carlisle Barracks in Pennsylvania. He is elated and even a bit relieved that the long waiting period is over. The rest of us? Not so much. My mother is proud but apprehensive. She knows Carlisle Barracks is a training post for troops going overseas. Will she be able to go to Pennsylvania with him and bring me? If not, she’ll take me back to stay with her family until further notice. If he’s sent overseas right away, this is the last time she has to spend with him. My grandmother is tight-lipped. Like my mother, she’s proud but much more apprehensive. Still, she managed a smile for this picture.
