Kudos Snippy & Sam for another Great thread. My Mother-In-Law tells stories of how she was able to sleep with allied bombs dropping around Naples when she was a young girl. A widow twice, both husbands fought in WW2, and did their part to help liberate Italy. She knows first hand what it is like  when the Germans and fascists knocked on her parents door looking for "men and boys" to help them fight the allies.  She is 78 years young, a  woman of great faith, a survivor of great losses, and is sharp as a tack.  She is a walking, living, breathing, bit of history, and is one of our country's greatest WW2 living treasures.

Morning tomball.

I'll bet your MIL has tales to tell. My mom's stories as a teenager on the "other" side always fascinated my sisters and I.

Thank you so much for telling us about your MIL. It must be wonderful to hear her stories. I hope you all are writing some of them down for history.
