Vad du kommer att göra

We have found it most comfortable for everyone if we gather in the front room of the house where couches and chairs of each ones choosing are. Guests will need to let me know what they are most interested in and from there we will compile photos and memorabilia relating to those areas and I will give my accounts of the actual historical moments. Here are some some specific choices: My life as a child in the 1930s being raised by a single mother with 3 siblings; The country as we prepared to go to war and volunteered in the service of our country; Women's new roles during WWII; My experiences in the Army Air Corps during WWII; Historical facts of the war; What normal life was in the 1940s like wages, food, living conditions, segregation, racism, religion, schooling, etc.; Korean War; Marriage and family life in Chicago; Staying in the Air Force as a navigator in the Reserves and serving in war zones in Viet Nam; Being an elder at a Plymouth Brethren Church in Chicago during "White Flight" of the 1960s. Sacrificing to be one of the only white families to continue attending this church and staying in this Englewood Ministry of Laflin Gospel Chapel to this day; Installing the largest sign in Soldier Field in Chicago for the Billy Graham 1962 Crusade; Losing a dear navigator comrad and two comrad pilots;

Ruth

(I am Ruth writing this for my 93 year old father Jack.) I am one of very few WWII Veterans still alive from the era known as The Greatest Generation. 3 years ago, my daughter and her husband who live with me decided we would host with Airbnb. We were so happy to meet many people from all walks of life and were pleasantly surprised at how many positives resulted from our experience. The one biggest surprise to me was how guests started to put in the reviews that speaking to me would be a treat for those interested in history and the wars I participated in! We started to have guests book just to talk to me!! There are some very difficult and sad memories I share as well as very funny and inspiring memories. We realize that the Experience through Airbnb is something those interested in my memories could actually enjoy.
